The Blen - Morning after!

The morning after the night before some much needed grub was called for.  We all met at Bella's again before wandering into town for some brunch (and getting soaked in a downpour!)

I've decided Bella needs to take all my outfit pictures from now on (sorry Hubs, although you're probably relieved!)  She made me pose in all manner of ways, finally without 'hand on hip' and I love this more fun style photo, even if I do look silly!  ;)

By the time we arrived at the restaurant we were all super hungry and after one person mentioned getting a burger we all succumbed for fear of burger envy!  It was 12pm by this point so it wasn't too weird having them for brunch!

Various delicious burgers and fries, yum!

Very happy girlies with fries and onion rings!

I was loving the stripy green wallpaper!

While we were at brunch, the lovely Bella had a surprise for us all (even thought she's the bride)!  She handed out specific little tissue paper packages to each of us and we all opened them at once to discover the most gorgeous little heart stud earrings!  Each of us had a different colour specifically chosen for us and I had JUST that morning been admiring (wanting to steal) Bella's own pair she was wearing!  I couldn't believe I suddenly owned my own pair!  Thank you SO much Bella, I love them!

It was much less wet on the walk home in the sunshine and we all showed off our beautiful earrings!

Mahj - Pink
Zan - White (the next bride!)
Katie - Red
Bella - Turquoise
Roz - Black
Me - Aqua!  Perfect!!

A pretty amazing weekend indeed and we're already so excited about the next meet up - ODP in October as sadly NONE of the Blen girls can make it to AOP :(

Bella's amazing Blen (Part 2)!

So you've seen what we all got up to when we converged on Bella's home in Hale.  The evening continued with dancing and more drinking while playing with some of the props a few of us brought for Bella to borrow for her wedding photo booth!  (It was obviously going to happen!)


Hmmm, shall I insert the video here??  Not sure Mahj even knows about it yet!  ;)

Ensuring our hen is well 'hydrated'

Not long after that, despite many protestations, the lovely Penny had to leave us :(

We all managed to plod on without her (in all her biker jacket glory) and got ready for a night of dancing while watching The X Factor.

Mahj revealed her super sexy Blen shoes...

I put on my fabulous tie dress and the dragonfly scarf I made and was anointed by Bella with her Hen veil for some reason (but didn't complain as I never wore a veil on my own hen!).  And we all posed for more silly photos!

Practising our pouts in the amazing Illamasqua pink lipstick of wonder!

Then off we went to Suburbia for some cocktails and dancing!  Complete with props of course!  Roz managed to secure us a place on the guest list, free entry and our own booth for the night with table service!  Go Roz!

The ceilings were pretty low which Roz decided to prove by kicking it and I got the photographic evidence!  That girl has the most amazing legs!  (Not too subtle cropping required due to the short dress!)

Me showing off my diamante eyelashes!



Mahj's swimming dance moves - we think she was channelling Ryan Lochte!

Singing our wee hearts out!

So basically we had a night of posing, dancing and singing our wee hearts out.  It was SO MUCH FUN!  Since I've added a ridiculous amount of photos again because I just love them all, the morning after will be another post tomorrow ;)
