Groovy Baby!

Yee Harr ! I had a brilliant time at BOMfest this weekend.

It was my first taste of festivals and I can really understand why people flock to them ... what a fabulous vibe!!

Where else would you get Buddhist monks, jugglers, face-painters, stilt walkers, guide-dogs for the blind, punk rockers, people wearing a tutu with hold-up stockings + socks n wellies, burger vans and ME !

It was completely BONKERS and I LOVED it ... look out Glasto here I come ... tho I'm still not so sure about the camping bit !!

BOMfest - Saturday 16th July

OM Good Grief ... I've got a stall at the Barnsley Original Music Festival this coming weekend - I've never attended a music festival before - I've no idea what to expect but I'm sure it will be great fun ... wish me luck !

PS. I drew the line at camping though !!!

All A-Glow!

I spent a fab afternoon last week at The Glow in Leeds with my good friend Diane having a mini makeover.

Neither of us wear much makeup as a rule so it was a bit of an experience having our nails, hair and makeup done - not to mention spending an hour with Leroy having our photo's taken - though the HUGE glass of rose definitely steadied the nerves !

For anyone thinking about a makeover I can highly recommend The Glow in Leeds ( their prices are very reasonable and there is no hard sell on the photos at the end - in fact I had to ask them !
