Imagine my surprise and delight when one afternoon I checked my blogging email inbox , and found that Modcloth had emailed me, offering me freebies in exchange for a ‘Travel Bug’guide to Brighton for their blog! I regard myself as small fry when it comes to the blogging world so I was thrilled that a brand as huge as Modcloth would even notice me! And boy was it hard choosing those freebies! They have so much gorgeous stuff!
After much deliberation, the winners were a pretty mint tea dress, two tone brogues (I’m so in love with these shoes!) cute pale polka tights and a sweet ‘Love in three languages’ necklace! Worn here with a handmade ballerina cardigan I found in a flea market in Berlin.
The dress is a lovely light crepe type fabric, and it skims over my curvy bits wonderfully! It’s also a lot of fun to twirl in!
And how sweet is this multi-lingual little trinket?
And because my personal blogging photographer (aaw he’s the best!) was looking so ruddy dapper I thought I would post his outfit too!
Josh is wearing a vintage blazer from Beyond Retro, a Topman shirt and spray-on skinny jeans, and vintage paisley tie from the Brighton ‘Frock Me’ fair the other weekend. I love how he mixes up colour and patterns in unpredictable ways!
And just in case you didn’t notice in the photos above, look at this adorable window transfer! It caught my eye as we crossed the road and I knew my outfit photos had to include it! We started the day with a hearty breakfast in Cafe Motu, in preparation for a day of snapping ‘must visit’ places in Brighton…
Oh maaaaan I am such a sucker for american breakfasts! We stopped by to visit our friend Alec (of The Splendid Suitcase) at his market stall in the lanes, and he caught this ‘muscle man’ moment whilst helping me with the manual settings on my camera (I’m still learning!)
We then went to our friend Juans for a dinner party, where Lucia (his sister) and Oli (her boyfriend) cooked us a gorgeous dinner!
We provided the desert….Nutella fondue with fruit and mini donuts! Yum!
And then…(SO happy about this!) Josh and I went to see C W Stoneking again! How lucky am I? Twice in one year! Once again he was phenomenal, and this time I was right at the very front! Perfect for someone of my teeny stature! I thoroughly recommend you check this chap out on youtube
Now for fear of this post becoming a smug freebies-indulging one…I have a little Christmas present for you! I am giving away this cute make up purse that was also sent to me by Modcloth (share the wealth!) Big enough for all your daily bits and bobs, brushes, lotions and potions with a convenient little zipped pocket inside! Not to mention how sweet it is to look at!
Then all you have to do is comment on this post, telling me what your ‘can’t live without’ make up product of choice is! What brand is it? What’s so amazing about it, and why you like it so much? Then click ‘like’ on my facebook page to complete your entry!
I’ll be announcing the winner within the next two weeks! Ps. You can view the Modcloth Travel Bug post I did HERE – hope you like it!
