What's happening with you, my dears?
Here things trundle on. As does my blog format. So many bloggers have changed their sites in recent weeks. Am I the only one not to get the memo on this? I've had this format for nearly two years. It's probably very granny-like, but I like the format and the colour and I think my overall look is in keeping with who I am, so I think I'll stick with what I have right now. I do hope you're OK with it
The Photographer and I had a Date Afternoon recently. We went to our local cinema to see Daddy's Home 2. Hilarious. I looked over at TP a few times as I didn't think the film was really "him", but there he was, snugged down in his seat and laughing his little head off ... phew! It's a great Christmas film and I liked it so much I ordered the first film off Amazon.
So that's a film you might want to catch leading up to Christmas to get you in the spirit of the season.
And what's the season? Well ... 'Tis the season of boughs of holly and sweater dresses.
Yup, this fawn sweater dress from Monsoon was my outfit of choice for a belated birthday lunch with a dear friend. BTW, I hope you're not starting to think I'm a one-trick pony with a queue of sweater dresses coming your way. It's just that, well 'tis the season for sweater dresses.
- Brown boots and opaques, Gabor and M&S respectively.
Tried here with a furry muffler.
The piled on with a brown suede jacket.
Then I tried that dreaded blanket scarf look again.
Did it look any better with a long East cardi, I wondered?
Nah, I'm really going to have to google some blanket scarf tuition, as a helpful reader suggested.
Have you mastered the blanket scarf look? Is it getting any better for you?
I think a few of us are struggling, there's so much of it.
Maybe a little muffler is simpler. Yup, that's the one,
And those were the stages required to dress The Pout for lunch.
I met with my friend in the golf club a 3-4 minute drive away. I'm not going to give you lots of food shots because some may be being careful with calorie intake to fit into something gorgeous for a Christmas party and I don't want to spoil things.
But just gotta say that I've been eating Mrs Fisken's chicken liver pate for about 15 years and it still does not fail to excite my taste buds when I take my first forkful. Served here on a toasted brioche slice and with a beetroot relish. So, so yummy. It's locally made so Guernsey readers may want to dash round to Forest Stores for a slice or two of this lovely yumgrub for a pre-Christmas treat. You're welcome.
My friend treated to my lunch and she gave me pressies.
Some fab Clarins products. It must be obvious to those who know me that I love Clarins products and I was so thankful to family and friends' generosity and thoughfulness, as ever. I have some more products to share with you soon. Such a consistently good brand
Well, that was a lovely lunch with a lovely person.
That's me done, I'm off to chose an outfit to tonight's meal with friends. I hope it's good enough to share photos with you!
A la perchoine.
p.s. I apologise for the abundance of selfies right now. Normal service will be resumed shortly.
