First Date

So I had my first date with The Canadian last night and, thankfully, I have no dating disaster to report. He was lovely and we got on really well but there was no *spark*, dag nam it! I broke one of my dating rules and agreed to go for dinner on a first date but my thinking was that we were meeting at 8pm and the pubs close at 10.30pm also I had asked R and Only Boy Flatmate to text me at 8.30pm with some kind of problem that I needed to rescue them from, just in case. They dutifully did this for me but R said "V has been eaten by the Venus Fly Trap" which actually made me laugh out loud which, if I had needed to escape, wasn't the best reaction to the rescue text!

I wore this outfit for my date....

Dress: All Saints (they seem to think this is a top! It's so long I wear it as a dress)
Belt: Warehouse
Leggings: American Apparel
Boots: Carvela
Earrings: Beth Nouveau

I love these earrings so much, Beth Nouveau's Etsy shop is fantastic and I have a few different pairs of her feather earrings and hair clips, they are well made and so reasonabley priced. Head on over and have a look!

I have lots to do this week; more work, a black tie charity ball on Tuesday which I shall be wearing my long cream evening gown to (even if they tell me to wear black!), Christmas shopping, cooking and decorating, we've decided to have our flat Christmas dinner on Sunday which will in include roastie beast (not sure which one yet but maybe beef or maybe pheasant), dessert of some kind (I'm thinking of Eaton Mess which is my favourite and my local Sainsbury's still has some strawberries and raspberries to be had!), crackers and then lots of silly board games. I am very much looking forward to this week, bring it on!

Lots of Love

P.S. x
