Goodwood, Craft Fayre, and Work

I've been so quiet this month; sorry! Stuff has been hectic and I haven't had much time to spare!

On Friday, I went to the Goodwood Revival, which is a festival celebrating vintage cars and fashion. It was a birthday present from my brother, and we'd been looking forward to it since about March, so we were so pleased that the day had finally arrived! We decided to go with a 50's theme. I bought a beautiful dress and petticoat from Hell Bunny, and some kind of vintage styled shoes from New Look. I also went with some old styled makeup and attempted (and failed) to do something different with my hair. Here's the outcome...


I think I scrubbed up pretty well! Considering I never usually adventure into wearing dresses, or generally have an overly girly appearance, I think I was quite successful with my outfit! The show was amazing though and I would definitely love to go back - if not next year, then the year after! It's probably one of the most surreal experiences I've ever had...like walking around a film set! All the different fashion eras look so cool together, and it was a great photo opportunity. However, I won't bore you with any of my photographic stuff, but will share this gem that my brother took...

I can drive race cars, me

My feet were so sore the next day! But onwards and upwards, and Saturday brought this month's craft fayre in Osmington!

Hello from Siân Lister Photography!

Like last month, my lovely boyfriend Dave came along for moral support, and to help me out with the setting up/packing away of things. It was unfortunately a really quiet fayre this month, and not many people turned up, which was a shame because there was some gorgeous stalls attending. For those interested in the Osmington Arts & Crafts Fayre, check out their Facebook page for dates and information!

The rest of my time recently has been taken up by work. However, I'm spending this weekend in a holiday cottage with one of my best friends, Kirsty (we went to Wales last year!), and then I have just 5 more shifts, before a fortnight off. Much crochet shall be done while I am away, and I'm sure I'll get more done in the time that I'm off as well...we can hope, anyway.
