Shaken Not Stirred

I thought I'd share some photos of me enjoying a vodka Martini after a particularly long day last week...


 



Mr N mixed me one as only he can




I was trying to be all 'Mad Men' in  my new-old dress, bought recently at a vintage shop in Leominster. The collar is an Ebay purchase 


  I bet Joan never looks like this though




I kept telling Mr N off for referring to our fabulous bar area as a "cabinet".  How dare he?! It's a bar dammit!  I haven't spent all this time pimping it up retro style for nowt 







All I need now is some soda siphons and a pineapple ice bucket.  I'm on the lookout

Anyone fancy a G&T?

  4. Wow love the bar! And also love the dress! Leominster's great for vintage shopping, we often spend the day there as a birthday treat for me as it's only a 45 minute drive or so drive from us :) xx

  12. I love love love your bar Lucy. My parents didn't really drink, my mum just very occasionally but my dad not at all, so things like this always seemed so glamorous to me. I was trying to cultivate a cocktail cabinet in a kitchen cupboard until I realised my daughter and her friends were raiding it! xx

  13. I'll have a G&T! I've got a pineapple ice bucket but it's mine all mine! I really love your 60s bar, I'm very jealous of it - it looks so perfect! Your drunk face is my general face in photos which is why I have to hold my eyes very wide in photos. I've made your CD by the way, though I think I might've put on a couple of songs that you already have and it cut one off the end, it's all my fault for using itunes. But hopefully you'll like it! I want to go back to oxford soon, so I'll get you a badge but they also have a website, it's called Alice's Little shop or something!
    You look lovely, why do you live so far away so we can't hang out?!

  15. Yum yum yum! Do you know I have only ever had a gin martini once, the shame! But I also smoked a big fat cigar with it and it really was quite perfect! Your bar makes me wanna drink.
