Diamond Jubilee









I have had a happy day watching the Diamond Jubilee Pageant on the Thames, from the comfort of my own home, with a lovely hot cup of redbush tea close at hand.

I felt quite concerned for the Royal Family, standing on the Spirit of Chartwell for hours and hours in the pouring rain, but it was a wonderful spectacle.  I love to see narrow boats, and they looked particularly splendid, bedecked with jolly bunting.



The Duchess of Cambridge looked especially chilly, as she didn't wear a coat, although she did look stunning.

Colour Analysis

Last week, I had a colour analysis consultation, which was really interesting and fun.  A friend of mine did this for me, she is very professional, I can warmly recommend her!  I always thought I was a 'winter' type, so I tend to wear a lot of black/white/red/blue, but apparently I am a deep autumn, so I've been looking online to see what colours I should be wearing.

Hi Jayne! I love your photos of the Diamond Jubilee! Thank you! I am so deprived of all the fun hoopla. I wish I was having a cup of tea with you and watching all the pomp! I like your queen.

Thank you Pom Pom, we do like our pomp and pageantry in the UK! I loved every minute of it x

I really should have my colours done. I've just started to wear pink and always get compliments, but have always steered clear of pink before.

Hi Jane, I think the colours that suit us change as we go through life, so it's good to keep an open mind x

Love your colour palette, I tend to veer towards all the very natural shades and I look very, very awful in cerise pink! :)

Hi Tina, whatever colour you wear, I think you looked fab in the pic of your coffee date with your fellow bloggers, really lovely.
