In which I reveal myself...


I think the beautiful air of the Mediterranean has got to me it's either that or the copious amounts of Champagne Belle mere has been providing in the run up to her big birthday on Thursday.  Whatever it is I felt a huge surge of well being, so much so for the first time since starting this blog I have taken pictures of myself and posted them!

I would like to to thank Vintage Vixen for her hugely inspirational "Dream on post" I was going to book a pedicure, manicure and waxing session at the local salon but after reading Vix's post I thought I would have a go myself, after all I have all the stuff, in fact various products have been languishing in the bathroom for ages, unused, and what do you know, the first day here with time on my hands I treated myself by my own hands and it felt great in fact even better than any salon I have been to, plus I have saved myself around 100 Euros.

I am hugely self conscious in front of a camera so this is quite a big thing for me, but I thought it only fair I know what all my favourite bloggers look like so now you know what I look like.

 
See how self conscious I am, I look as if I am dying to go to the loo in this picture!  Not to mention my eye's look closed!

  14. Dash! You look absolutely gorgeous. It's fabulous to finally see you after all this time. I love your outfit so much.
    Hoorah to saving cash and pampering yourself with products you already have, that means you can spend the extra 100 Euros on champagne! xxx

  17. Dash you look lovely! Your top is gorgeous! Don't worry about looking awkward in the photo - you really don't, but i know exactly what you mean about being self-conscious. I'm the biggest photo-dodger out of all my friends - i'll only do it if i'm absolutely forced or a little bit drunk haha. I always get a feeling of dread when i get a notification on facebook saying that i've been 'tagged' in a photo - i just always look awkward and/or smile so much (i can't pose so refuse to attempt it) that i look like some chubby-cheeked chipmunk haha...

    Lots of love, Lucy :) x

  18. More photos of you please - you're gorgeous! Just as chic and beautiful as I expected.

    It's a slippery slope you know...I used to actively loathe having my photo taken and now I'm all over the blog!

  19. Dear Dash, how lovely to see you. I knew you would look great because your blog is so stylish, not to mention your smooth fox terrier! Just enjoy being young and beautiful I say. (I never intended to appear in my blog but I gradually crept in.)

  20. Ahhh! Lovely to see a picture of you on here. Of course we've met so no surprises for me.

    You look fantastic, I love your hat and outfit.

    I hate having my picture taken too so I totally understand. I can just about take them myself. You get more confident the more you do it.

    Have a wonderful weekend, love, C xx
