First Day

I've had a very long but a very enjoyable first day at Bunny Dealing School, my fellow Bunnies are all lovely and our trainers have made me feel confident that I will be able to pick up all the skills I will need over the next nine weeks. The only downside was that my nails, which I had trimmed very short for me, where still too long so have now been cut down even further! 

I decided to err on the side of caution with the "smart casual" dress code and wear this....


Dress: Handmade by Moi (it's another Roland Mouret copy)
Shoes: Aldo (7th pair saved) 
Earrings: Swished from V

....I managed the whole day in these heels but we only really stood up for the afternoon, I'm hoping my poor feets get more used to the heels as we go on. Any recommendations for making high heels more comfy? 

Tonights homework (yup we have homework) is the 5 and 8 times table up to 20 and to practise rolling our chips..... 
 .....rather surprisingly I seem to ambidextrous and maybe even a little better with my left hand (I'm a righty usually), this I find rather strange but I'm grateful as I thought it was going to be a nightmare to trying to do things with my left hand!


Right! I'm off to bounce around for todays 30 Day Shred workout and then a bath whilst reciting the 8 times table over and over.....repetition repetition repetition I think this will be my only hope! Unless any of you wonderful peeps have tricks to learning this particular times table?


Lots of Love


P.S. x


(sorry my pictues seem to be so fuzzt recently, no idea what's going on with my camera but am trying different setting so hopefully they'll get better!)

  1. Not really a trick.. but I usually do a plus 10, and minus 2. It's more easy than to add 8. Love the ALDO heels x

    I can't help with the maths (In fact I'm hopeless at it...) but I swear by the gel shoe inserts, I even put them into flats, they're so good to the balls of my feet!
    Best of luck with the learning! :)

  7. Fantastic choice for 'smart casual', and even more points for making it yourself, I wish I would try it! How did you get into making your own clothes? I just have this nervousness that I'll be terrible so keep refusing to try!

    Glad to hear your first day went well Purdey :-)

  10. Hmm smart and yet somehow casual. Oh pretty too! I remember the 8 times table as every second number of the 4 times table and the 5 is just 5 0 5 at the end simples * trys to squeak and fails dismally*

  11. Wow, the dress is stunning! And made by you! I'm inspired)) High heels can be made more comfortable only by wearing them more, and the tough types - by wearing them less) so the feet can get their rest.
