Now the tubes and trains of London town might be chiming to the blurb of travel with water bottle, don't get on train/tube if you feel unwell, get off at next station if you feel unwell etc. There are a fair few bodies fainting or wilting at various stations and actually on the streets of London. Mainly tourists unused to the fact we do not have air conditioning on public transport.
Being hard core I perspire but keep going. Pimms is a key ingredient in this wonderful British tradition of summer highs and lows. Where better to drink some but in a dark dingy London pub, which is cool on the basis it never gets the sun and has nice cold stone floor. And who better to drink with than fellow bloggers.
Once a year WendyB comes to town and this is a must do occasion. Not only do I get to try her rings on but I met other peeps and have jolly good old natter. If I was asked why I blog now as opposed to 3 years ago; I would say friendship and community. Three years ago it would have been about self promotion, not a bad thing but not enough ultimately in an ocean of fashion bloggers. It has been the engagement with people via the blogosphere and also in real life that keeps the spirit of my early pioneering blogging going.
Without blogging I wouldn't have known about Wendy's wonderful jewellery. I love that I know her, her creative inspiration and her dedication to being a professional business woman. So much so I've prioritised a Marie Antoinette ring over a Chanel 2.55 handbag in my savings account.
In my haste to get to the boozer (public house) I forgot my camera and only have this image from Wendy so it is minus her. Which is very remiss of me but I would like to point out we have all adopted the WendyB full on smile!
