New Hair & Birthday Treats

Well first off I have to apologise for the lack of posts recently, my other half and I have recently bought the business we work at and things have been rather stressful for me lately! We are soo pleased to finally be working for ourselves, it has taken us many years to get there and it's finally done. It does mean we have a tough couple of years ahead of us, but we think it will be worth it!

I finally had my hair cut last week, and it couldn't have turned out better. I was dead nervous at the time but I love it and it takes me like 5 mins in the morning, which means I get an extra bit of sleep, which if you knew me you would know that's a good thing. Not a morning person, no no.

It's actually my birthday today and here are some of the lovely gifts I received. From my dear sis got me a Vogue from June '82 which is the year I was born, such a cool gift! Along with some Benefit lip tint, and from her recent travels the most divine smelling pure olive oil soap and a box of very yummy authentic Turkish Delights that come from the very shop in Istanbul where the turkish delight originates! My other half actually looked at my Amazon wishlist and got me the Fantastic Mr Fox (can't wait to watch this later tonight!) and Up The Junction DVD's. 

Also the Bus Stop book, which has a pic of my Lee Bender dress in it (it's the velvet one, which I never knew came from a mail order range). As Miss Peelpants mentioned in her review of the book, it's quite an odd one and a shame that more original images weren't used, but there are some loverly pics in there indeed. It's a quiet night in for us tonight as I already had a birthday dinner on sunday with sis and her hubby, so I may crack open the turkish delights, just to test them mind! ; p

I woke up this morning only to see the sad news that Brian Duffy died last Monday. 
Duffy, along with David Bailey and Terence Donovan captured the 60s like no one else and he also was produced many iconic advertising campaigns, films and album art. In the late 70s he caused a stir by burning many of his negatives in a bin, of which most were saved when a neighbour objected to the smoke! 
The Aladdin Sane cover is one of his most iconic and groundbreaking images. Do yourself a favour have a google and spend some time looking at some of his beautiful work.
