Miss Dani Teeze

Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m quite partial to a cocktail or two whether it’s out in a bar or at home experimenting so imagine my delight when High Roller Cocktails created a cocktail and named it after me!

Introducing the ‘Miss Dani Teeze’ featuring some of my favourite flavours and of course completely vegan.

Of course I had to go out and get ingredients to make it straight away, and as I couldn’t get the Malibu with passion fruit, I added Passoa in to the mix (which actually probably made it a little bit more alcoholic, but that’s not a bad thing right?).

Nothing Quite So Sad As A Girl Who Can’t Shop!

Imagine the excitement when I woke up a couple of weeks ago to an email saying that one of my favourite online retailers, Lindybop was having a flash sale – one problem, I’d lost my bank card, a replacement card was on order but with it being a bank holiday weekend it had taken longer than usual for my new card to arrive.

I found four dresses I really liked and added them to my shopping basket ready for when my new card arrived, I waited for what felt like forever, and then the day came that my new shiny piece of plastic arrived in the mail, I excitedly went online ready to complete my purchase only to find out two of the dresses were no longer available in a size 8, I bought the other two that were still available and went off to work, but no matter how hard I tried to convince myself that two dresses are better than none I couldn’t seem to shake the feeling of discontent.

I got as far as my first break and went back online and managed to find two more dresses, one in the sale and one new stock and after purchasing both of those I managed to get through the rest of the day feeling less traumatized.

Moral of the story, take better care of your bank card!

So far, I’ll admit I’ve only actually worn one of the dresses, to my friend’s anniversary celebrations at Hockwold Hall in Norfolk this weekend but I’m sure I’ll find the perfect occasions to wear the rest soon!

Shopping Vintage

You know that moment when you see a picture of someone wearing the most amazing dress – only it’s vintage so you know you’re never going to be able to find the exact same one?

I saw a picture last week on Immodesty Blaize’s instagram of her wearing a beautiful baby blue 70’s maxi number, and blue isn’t even a colour I usually wear unless it’s denim but the dress was sooo pretty.

Anyway, I popped in ┬áto Beyond Retro’s Soho branch yesterday and found not the same dress but something very similar in peach!

It’s the simple things in life, like finding the perfect dress and because it’s vintage, knowing it’s highly unlikely you’ll bump in to anybody else wearing the same thing.
