London HOT-SPOTS: Sweet Mira's Birthday at the Foundation Bar (London)!

A 'Jam Jar' of water....anyone? (Foundation Bar, London)
Sunny greeting my darlings......it is good to see a bright and cheery London this week! Nothing like a bit of sunshine to keep us all smiling! It's been a busy week of Birthdays and there is still much more to come!

On Saturday, I was at the Foundation Bar in Covent Garden (London) celebrating my friend Mira's Birthday....and what a night we had! Just turning left out of Covent Garden and almost directly opposite by the side of Marks and Spencer is the little alley where Foundation Bar is hidden.....surprisingly easy to find even for someone who is as clueless in directions as me! Down a wide unsuspecting staircase and through some big black double doors, I arrived in a dark underground world with dimly lit lights and typical club decor. As I ventured further, I felt like a mouse going through some tunnels within a big cave and entering a secret world hidden from the outside world, where relaxation met with fun friendliness. Being only about 8pm it was surprisingly half filled already, after all most clubs don't really start until 10pm, and I sat down with our Birthday girl Mira as well as other friends for a bit of catching up time. One of the quirky features I really liked were the 'Jam Jars' that were used to serve water....what a cute idea and a great way to recycle things in a trendy way! I must say I do love dancing quite a bit and it is one of the main reasons that will draw me to a club, so when the DJ began spinning some brilliant dance tunes we just had to take the empty dance floor and make it our own! We danced the night away, forgetting the world above ground, singing along and rolling with laughter in the company of friends.......the memory of other nights where I have danced even as much melted into a distant past. It was a brilliant night and our sweet Birthday girl Mira was the hottest smiling beauty on the dance floor.....we couldn't have asked for a better night! All in all, the Foundation Bar in Covent Garden (London) deserves a 4 ♥♥♥♥ out of 5 lovely hearts from me, and definitely recommended for a cheerful fun filled night dancing with friends!

Happy Birthday sweet Mira! xx

My cutie pie.....BouBou will be turning -ONE- years old on the 22nd of June 2012!
So with two Birthdays done so far there are still a few more to go! My little treasure BouBou who is vastly more than just a cat to me, you should understand, will be having his FIRST ever Birthday this Friday 22nd June 2012!! And I daresay that I am actually more excited about his Birthday than he is! So the weekend will most likely be filled to the brim with celebrations, as it is also my friend Gabby's Birthday on Saturday, and lots of dancing from ballet rehearsals! Have an utterly fabulous weekend my darlings!



Until the next time,
May xx

How-To: Do 1930s to 1950s....a Vintage inspired twist to glitz-up your evening look!

With only three days to go before my vintage themed birthday do.....it's all getting a little exciting and I am still finalising my 1920s Great Gatsby inspired look in my head! So I thought it might be helpful to think about building other vintage looks too...just in case any of you lovely darlings are attending a vintage party or in need of any inspiration!

To me, the real glitz and glam began in the 1920s but evolved into a deeper feminine state towards the 1930s....which carried on through to the 1950s because of an addictive fascination with the glamorous silver screen. The 1930s was not a trouble free decade by any means, as the Great Depression and WW2 began broiling in the backdrop of society. But with all the unrest came an opportunity for many to sooth their sores in the world of cinema.....and so the age of the silver screen sirens began captivating the world! There were shifts in day wear becoming more practical as WW2 shook the world and fashion seemed to have halted f…

Qipao Love: Part 5 ~ How-To choose and wear a Qipao (Cheongsam) that will love your frame!

A little warning is probably in order my darlings...as this will be a rather comprehensive How-To Qipao post! I will try to incorporate my own knowledge as well as what I researched through time, to create a rough but helpful guide for ladies who might want to attempt wearing the Qipao! Why do I say attempt? In today's fast paced life the Qipao has become a rather occasional dress even for a faithful admirer like me and I can understand why it might not be the most popular attire in the world, but I also know that many ladies who admire the Qipao might resist the idea of wearing it because of different barriers. Being a lover of the Qipao myself...trust me I know the fearful qualms and muffin top resistance to wearing a Qipao all too well.....whether it is a matter of figure, budget, impression, style, occasion, look or finding the excuse to wear a Qipao, I hope to be able to offer some help towards a solution and ask that you forgive me if I am too long winded. The Qipao really i…

Qipao Love: Part 8 ~ Qipao on the silver screen.....

The film that actually made the Qipao (Cheongsam) a frenzied fashion trend in the West, with dress patterns suddenly appearing for the public to create their own version of the style, was actually the American production 'Love is a Many Splendored Thing' (1955) with lead actress Jennifer Jones ...but the British production 'World of Suzie Wong' (1960) is often more remembered with the greater display of tightly glamorous Cheongsam dresses in every scene, the scandalous nature of the character's profession and lead actress Nancy Kwan's Golden Globe nomination. Just in case you lovely darlings may be wondering...I am indeed devotedly fascinated by the Qipao, as many of you can probably tell already, and I also found it interesting how this beautiful garment is depicted in different films on the silver screen...which is why this is Part 8 of 'Qipao Love'. Though this is a long list of beautiful films featuring the Qipao, each is unique with its own percept…
