Harrogate 1940’s Day 2015

Hosted by The Friends of Valley Gardens, a local charity which helps to look after the beautiful park in Harrogate, the 1940’s day was another rip roaring success.

With a wide variety of stalls, tents and entertainment there was plenty to do and see for people of all ages. There was a great selection of food vans and cake stalls and also a beer tent.

A choir, singers and a big band had people up on their feet dancing away which was a great way for people to mingle and have a laugh. There were also military vehicles and vintage cars for people to admire and have their pictures taken with.

The weather held out and the sun was glorious for the Spitfire flyover which went down a real treat. Friends and families (dogs included!) enjoyed picnics and made the most of the lovely weather.

This event was another great success and the atmosphere was fantastic. A lovely way to spend a Sunday and raise money for The Friends of Valley Gardens at the same time! I will definitely be returning next year.

People often ask me if I wear false eyelashes. I don’t. I just use a lot of mascara and often two different ones to get a big lash look!

My natural lashes are quite light and make my eyes look small. But a white eyeshadow and lashings and lashings of mascara, I manage to open up my eyes making them look big and bright!

Here are before and after pictures and also pictures of the products I used today. I like to apply white eyeshadow before applying the mascara. I used two mascaras today to achieve this look, one has a big fat wand and the other has a curved wand. I finished off the look by defining my brows with Ultra Aqua Brow Tint.

Review of Lindy Bop WW2 Amie / Juliet Tea Dress

I have these dresses in red, blue and black and I often wear them for work but these dresses are also great for dressing up with big hair and retro jewellery for evening wear.

The Amie and the Juliet are very similar, the Juliet has a cute small opening at the front and back whereas the Amie does not.

I wear these dresses with a plain straight petticoat / slip underneath. The design of the dress is great, it does not cling to those lumps and bumps and skims over your hips.

I wear this dress all year round as you can team it with a cardigan and some vintage boots if the weather is a little chilly.

At £29.99 the dress is very reasonably priced and I would definitely recommend purchasing one, if not all of the colours!
