First off, I apologise for neglecting my blog recently, I have been moving house so it’s all been a bit manic for a few weeks but myself and the cats are just about settled now and I finished the essential unpacking today (while hiding the non-essential stuff in my lovely new loft!).
In between the moving madness was another “It’s a Wonderful” event, this time a love filled Valentine’s Love Boat ball. On a boat! It was, of course, totally fabulous.
My outfit for the evening was an amazing Bernie Dexter for Modcloth creation and drew a lot of attention, I felt very special and as it was a birthday gift, it made it even more special.
I also made myself a little hair piece with a vintage anchor brooch so I had something a little nautical.
Having wandered round trying to find it for a little while we eventually spotted the balloons and posters pointing us in the right direction we arrived outside the lovely barge on the Thames where we were “papped” on the red carpet gang plank.
And then we entered the beautiful, intimate venue of the barge. I have to say, as a choice of venue, it was brilliant. Small and intimate but with enough room to move around. The lower deck had the main bar, a good size dance floor, stage and a little spiral staircase leading to the upper deck. The upper deck had a small bar, the area which was to host the speed swing dating and then the outdoor deck, where a few of us attempted to recreate Titanic, as you do…………..
As this was also my official birthday celebrations I was subjected to a birthday circle swing dance, this filled me with complete fear. I’ve had one 10 minute jive lesson and a few dances but I felt completely unprepared to be thrown around by lots of far more experienced young men. I needn’t have worried, the boys were lovely, I had great fun, managed to mostly keep up with the extremely fast (and specially written) birthday swing song! I recommend it to everyone.
I honestly had a totally fabulous night, got to catch up with some of my favourite girls including Bettina Scarlett, Lady K Loves and The Vanity Box.
Here are some more images form the evening for you to enjoy!
Like what you see? Then come along to the next It’s a Wonderful event! It’s in May and is the Jubilee Jamboree. This one is of epic proportions with both a pre-party warm-up and main event, all for the price of one ticket, it would be rude not to come, check it out here. You may even see me make a special appearance…………..
