#frocktober2014 days 24, 25, & 26

It’s been a whirlwind ’round here folks. Day 23’s bridal bash was a huge success which saw my overall tally of funds doubled by the end of the week. And I woke up on Sunday morning to a new donation which, combined with the three cash ones I received on Saturday, saw me hit $1000!!!…

#frocktober2014 day 23: bridal bash!

So the big day finally arrived, and with it a huge case of sick-in-the-stomach butterflies. The whole night before I tried to picture myself swanning about the school in my wedding dress, a brand new mum with not too many friends yet, and I was honestly contemplating saying goodbye to my son at the school…

I wanted to squeeze this post in today because the next one will be all about the bridal bash! I have been flooded with donations in the last twenty-four hours and it’s full steam ahead! I have a few very wonderful women coming along and hopefully some more will surprise us on the day. The…

#frocktober2014 days 17, 18, & 19

So I took the weekend off, and then some. We’re nearing the home stretch for this year’s Frocktober fund raising challenge and I’m tired. Tired of begging for donations, tired of taking shamelessly posed full length photos every day and tired of seeing my Instagram account full of nothing but those photos. Help a girl…

#frocktober2014 days 14, 15, & 16

Well folks we are officially past the halfway mark. It’s been an exciting few days in Frocktober land, what with the #frocktoberbridalbash morphing into a group event {see Facebook invite HERE and by all means join us!}, and two days of cold temperatures when Sydney was bashed about the head with a huge storm and…

#frocktober2014 days 12 & 13

You know what? I am loving getting frocked up! It’s really nice feeling well put together, and putting some thought into the frock of the day. I didn’t realise I owned so many polka dot dresses, and I haven’t even worn them all. I have been dropping a few hints on Instagram in the last…

#frocktober2014 days 10 & 11

It’s really starting to warm up, and this weekend we are being promised nice hot days. Which all adds up to an even more fun #frocktober when you don’t have to worry about tights and jackets. Because I for one cannot tolerate bare legs in cool weather. Call me grandma. On day 10 I chose…

#frocktober2014 days 7, 8, & 9

So I’m happy to report that life is settling back down to normal. School holidays are over again and the house has quietened down a lot. I’m still frocking on, and it’s becoming a funny game every morning of which frock to choose. I know there are some I will want to wear more than…

#frocktober2014 day 6 and the big party.

So day six has now been and gone, and with it my much anticipated fortieth birthday. It was everything I had hoped for and more, and I was very fortunate to have celebrated with a wonderful bunch of people. I would also like to take this opportunity to say that you will never again hear…

#frocktober2014 days 3, 4, & 5

Playing catch up after a crazy weekend. For day 3 I wore a deep orange linen dress from Target. It’s a recent buy and this was the first time I wore it, and I paired it with tan wooden sandals by Lee Cooper. Day 4 was party day as I celebrated my fortieth birthday. It…
