So we’re nearly at the end of the year and that’s one-fifth of the way through this decade. (I thought that might be a bit of a shock for you, it was for me when I realised.)
It’s my last post of the year, and this year’s posts have been sporadic, to say the least*. But I thought I’d go out on a high (outfit-wise) and share one of the only party outfits I wore this year. Not for Christmas as would seem appropriate, but way back in August for a party on my Virgin Voyages cruise.
The theme was red and OF COURSE I had to wear my (as then) recently purchased floral one-shoulder jumpsuit with the wide legs and puff sleeve that I made all sorts of ugly crying faces over when it fitted me like a dream (tears of happiness if that wasn’t clear).
What can I say… it’s a beauty of a jumpsuit and I will admit I felt like a million f***ing dollars in it.

We shot these photos in the tunnel entrance to the Pink Agave (Mexican) restaurant – my photographer Giles and I now refer to these images as the “Mexican space tunnel” shots. You can see why.
I’m not sure I’ll have many opportunities for dressing up big time in 2022, but after two rollercoaster Covid years, who knows what’s in store?
*I’ve got lots of planning and systems to put into place next year as 2021 has been a time suck in a not-good way; I need to get back on track with regular posting both here and on Instagram (and I welcome your thoughts re. TikTok? Is my audience – i.e. YOU – avid TikTok watchers? Keith is obsessed with it as an app, and I have to say I like the videos he sends me links to, but I’m not sure how my output can translate and whether my audience would relate to it or even be on it. I do have ideas though. All feedback welcome).
All that’s left now is to say I hope you HAD a lovely Christmas, I hope you HAVE a very Happy New Year and a good 2022, and DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES MISS the annual bloopers post on Sunday 1st January. I may just be looking back at the best (very worst?) of the bloopers from the last 10 years so watch out, it promises to be a good one.
How has your year gone? Comment below (and don’t forget the TikTok feedback, thank you)…!
Stay safe, XOXO
