Who's that girl?!


I hardly recognise myself in these shots!
No bouffant?!
WTF?!
Actually, I felt like a little change, and thought I'd rev it up a bit for y'all!
My hair is actually in Heidi braids, not that you can tell!


We were off to band practice on Saturday night, and you might like to know that we have a new drummer!
He's keen and motivated; I reckon we'll be gigging again in the later half of the year!
Hurrah!

G workin' it!

Dearest Helga,
you and G are the coolest couple in the blogosphere in my opinion!
Hubby and I used to do the band thing many moons ago but now we just have the occasional Friday jammin' session in the kitchen.
Best of luck with the new drummer.
Lot's of love,
Jennie...xXx

You always look gorgeous and may I say G is looking rather gorgeous himself too!

Sue said...

Look at you just working the red, white and blue!!! I had the same little case as yours and my boys kept their matchbox cars in it when they were just little dudes. Kind of reminds me of my first school bag, in my day we rocked up to school with a suitcase, we looked like we were leaving home!!

Miss Tallulah Porkchop said...

Check you and the G-man out in your colour co-ordinated crimplene fabulousness! Your hair looks gorgeous and your make-up is a joy to behold! That suitcase is freaking fabulous and so are the kinky ankle socks!
New drummer? I demand photographic evidence.
Love you!

This outfit reminds me of a modern Judy Garland in Oz, maybe the colors, the braids and the awesome red shoes!!
You and G look amazing and I'm really wondering about your music,
I'd love to listen to it!

Dial V for Vintage said...

I am loving the hair, you look good with both hairstyles of course, but I always love a bit of a change! :)

Ooooh matching blue - gorgeous!!! The Stylist has been wearing her hair in a similar way and we both utterly approve! I completely approve of ankle sox with your "chase me around the couch Mr Roper!" red heels and waistcoat - phwooooarrrrrrr!!!! xoxoxo
