Mind in a tangle...

Phew...this is blog post NUMBER 100!!! I wanted to make this post my first ever giveaway but unfortunately I don't get paid for another 2 days so I don't have any prizes. I think post number 101 will probably be the first giveaway.....

I had several ideas for the outline of this post but have decided to go with letting you know about Vintage at Southbank this weekend in London.

First things first though...on my last post I used the word "whole" instead of "hole". Sorry. It won't happen again! (I do proof read, honest.)

So...Vintage at Southbank is running from this Friday (29th) to Sunday in London on the South Bank. It is basically going to be a showcase for everything Vintage....(I bet you feel enlightened now!)

There will be an indoor show (tickets are about £60 for the day) that will have craft-a-longs, fashion shows and music in the evenings as well as a FREE outdoor market (that's the bit I'm going to..) selling housewares, records and fashion.

As you have probably guessed, my favourite eras are the sixties and seventies so I will be bargain hunting for any housey stuff that I can carry back on the train! The boyfriend will be hunting down Pink Floyd vinyls and if Hannah (of Hannah Banana Bakery fame) comes with us, I'm sure she will be buying some vintage cake stands and kitchen goodies.

There will also be a stand for "Mollie Makes" - the craft magazine I have been reading. I think they are planning a tutorial on their strawberry pin cushions. I'm super excited about the whole thing!

The only other thing I have to share with you right now is a picture of my new hair extensions that I put in for a barbecue at a work friends' house. Unfortunately the photo is pretty blurry...I was running late and getting EXTREMELY stressed out at both the boyfriend and ex-boyfriend who were incapable of taking a good photo for me! This is the best of the bunch....

Oh God, it really is a very blurry photo. Sorry. Blame the boys! The dress is Primark, the boots are from Oasis and the bag was a charity shop bargain.

Will you be at Vintage??
