Stylish Blogger Award

We've solved all our technical hitches and we're back keener than ever!  Thanks for your patience.

Tamuna from A Journey To Style kindly nominated me for the Stylish Bloggers' Award. Thank you Tamuna! My assignment is to share seven things you may not know about me.

1. I am the opposite of A-type. I take a nap here every day at around 1pm.

2. I never wear black. (this idea is shamelessly borrowed from Kayce)

3. I kind of said I had been a chef on a private yacht in order to get a job as a chalet girl in Champery, Switzerland. Which might not have been quite all. (me at right)

4. I started my hairdo adventures early - see my fringe (bangs) at left.


5. My first date with Kevin in London was a Highgate Cemetery tour followed by fillet of McDonald's.

6.  When Harley was three months, we accompanied Kevin on a business trip to a Swiss castle-hotel. Harley got a little tummy thing and massively pooped yellow all over the pristine white carpet. I spent ages cleaning it up, only making it worse. I might have said it was yogurt stains...

7. At age 17, I was an AFS exchange student in New Canaan, Connecticut. I sprayed my hair with "Sun In" all summer. It actually turned red instead of platinum blond so my lovely host "sister" Jeannie and I actually did look like sisters. Homecoming picture.

I would love to pass the award along to:

Katie at k.t. blue
Sarah at BobbyRobin
JoAnn at IdRatherBeShopping
Vivienne of Vivienneart
Rebecca of The Daily Muse
Janelle of Ramblings of a Redhead
Quentin of Quentin Curtis Bacon
The Suburb Experiment
Michelle at Crystal Glamour
Kelly at Style Attic

  6. Thank you for passing on this award to me and it's fun to see your seven things! I can't say I never wear black. I have a lot of black shoes, belts, and bags. But a little black dress? Nope.


  7. Hi there! ... a belated note to say thanks for stopping by, and I'm glad you found me! I also live in CA, (southern but we go up north often- to visit family). Happy to have met you and discovered your blog!

    Love this post... especially Sun-In part. :)

  8. hi! regarding maxis: browsing your seem tall and slender, so you should have no problem wearing them! i've found that maxis with a empire waist or fitted bodice with a slight a-line look best. you can also create a waist by cinching with a skinny belt. i ALWAYS wear heels - higher the better, and make sure the dress hits just above the ground. too short and it will look funny. you can also look for a v-neck which elongates the look. you don't necessarily need a pattern, but if you do, choose small prints...and when in doubt, black always looks good! here's one i wore with a v-neck:
