A faded prima donna

I bought myself a couple of new dresses in the Asos sale the other day 

This was one of them.  I'm such a sucker for a graphic print.  I've been spending money like it's going out of fashion lately.  I know it's because I'm just bored and seeking something to distract me. Shopping I can do from my laptop while rocking the baby to sleep with my foot.  Unlike most hobbies one might explore which require a lot of time and your full attention, two things of which I have precious little to give at the moment.

I did however, find the time to get my rats mane cut the other day.

I also put one of those hair dye removers on it which brought up the red a few shades to a sort of caramelly, strawberry blonde colour.  It's a bit weird and I'm not sure I like it.  Just not sure where to go next.

Anyhoo, did you see Glasto?  Were you there?  If you were, I'm sooo jealous.  I generally consider myself a bit past the whole festival thing but this time around I would have given my eye teeth to be there on Saturday night to see this band.

Instead I was at home, on the sofa jiggling my little chap on my knee and pondering how many ways my life has changed ;)

Man, I forgot how much love I have for Metallica

What were your highlights?


  1. Hey!!! Your new dress is v pretty!!! I can understand your love of new print dresses!!
    I'm confused, your blog profile says yiur name is Sarah-Jane but I always thought it was Lucy Nation!!!! X

  2. I love the dress so cute!

    I keep wanting to get my hair cut and coloured, so enjoyed having it black and bright blue last year. I would love all over in your face purple but hate having my hair bleached to achieve it.

    Yeah I rocked out to Metalica on Sunday night via the red button they so rocked and brought back so many memories. Looking forward to seeing the Pixes next.

  3. Loving the strawberry blonde bob and the groovy frock!
    Whaddaya mean - past the festival thing? There's a sell-by date! I'm years older than you and still bloody love it. Kids under 12 are free. Little Lily's on her second Glasto and was dancing like a nutter to Kasabian. Go on, get registered for next year and have a blast.
    Metallica, Skrillex and Fat White Family were the best! xxx

  4. Gorgeous little frock, and I think your hair looks great, the new colour is really soft and flattering.
    I didn't watch ANY of Glastonbury, not a sausage. What's wrong with me? I think the World Cup has taken over my brain! xxx

  5. Metallica were great weren't they! I was watching it on tv too and wished I was there with everyone. The whole festival experience isn't really for me though, I had a bad experience once and it has kinda put me off for life. Plus, not being able to shower or use a proper loo for 6 days would be my worst nightmare!

  6. That dress is so sweet and I like the colour of your hair. About festivals you are never to old that's what I love about them. One year I want to come to Europe just for you summer festivals they always sound amazing!!!!

  7. Lovely dress and your hair colour is wonderful, I really love it.
    I've never been to a 'proper' festival, they're not really my bag, I leave that to my sister x

  8. Gawd, you're gorgeous you are. Would love to have your hair, and you're so photogenic! And no one, never, is past the festival age. I took my two when they were tiny, to the Wickerman (not Glastonbury I grant you, but...), and we had a blast. I fully intend to do it again, even if I have to take my collapsible deckchair and tartan rug...! x

  9. Oh gawd, am I the only person in the world not to get the whole Metallica thing!?!? Now I love a bit of rock, but these guys made me shudder and I just felt out of it. EXPLAIN their greatness.
    Loving your dress, you look tiny, I don't care what you say...and your hair is lush.
    Oh and I am from the Glasto region, born and bred, and now we love on the south coast and I can't believe we aren't there watching Dolly and drinking cider, my life has changed so much, I would barely recognise the old me.
    Gem x x x
