Pre-holiday ramblings...

The countdown is finally over - loverboy and I are off on holiday tomorrow!  I'm so happy to be swapping cold London for sunny Los Angeles and Las Vegas, that I am bouncing off the walls with excitement!

The weekend was mostly spent sewing, glueing, washing, packing, running errands, painting nails, getting hair done and exercising. 

My fingers don't normally look this chubby and wonky...promise!

I'm pleased to report that my pre-Viva exercise and healthy eating regime has been going pretty well.  Since I started on January 19th, I have managed to lose most of my post-wedding, 'husband diet' weight-gain, a total of 11.7 lbs!  

I'm feeling much fitter and ready for lots of dancing...the question is, how to keep it off in the diet trap that is the USA?!  I am already dreaming of crab leg buffets in Vegas...


Speaking of Vegas, I received a new dress in the post this weekend, from BooBoo Kitty Couture.  I can't wait to wear it!  Here's a sneak peak...


This will be my third time attending Viva Las Vegas, and I have to say, I am more excited now than I was the first time!  Apart from the fact that I will get to see LITTLE RICHARD (!!!!) and a whole host of other amazing musicians, I am really, really looking forward to catching up with our American friends.  I missssssssss them! 

I am also hoping that I get to meet lots of friends from the blogging community, so if you see me, come and say hello!

So that's all I have to report for now folks.  I have been slightly hermit-like of late, saving money for our trip, but I'm sure that I will have lots of exciting things to share with you soon!  In the meantime, for updates and general ramblings, please do head on over to the Incendiary Blonde Facebook page where I am trying to be more proactive with posting!
