Hats off to a great weekend

imageI’m a lucky girl. This weekend was another good one. Friday saw the launches of a new costume Jewellery collection  by #jazzyjewelzmalta and the new shop and collection from Coccinelle, both perfectly timed for my imminent birthday, and whilst I failed to make it to the C&R show, I hear their new collection is again, worth a look.

Saturday morning started with a second viewing on a property I hope to make our HQ and a visit to my trusted cobbler; this time though to enrol as an apprentice of sorts, having just booked myself a beginners shoemaking course in London at the prestigious #prescottandmackay.

Brunch beckoned @waterbiscuit, with an idea for a party taking shape with my project partner, before a trip up to the Artisan Fair in Mdina. Slightly smaller than usual, but a few of my favourites were there; Isabel Warrington, Stephanie Borg, and Sue Mifsud.

In the evening, I had been invited to the MADC playrooms for a performance of radio plays. The text message invitation read: fancy this? radio play at MADC rooms. 2 Nov. 8pm. 40’s dress.

So, I duly turned up a half hour before, in the Santa Venera location, in 1940’s clothing; pencil skirt, peplum top, rolled hair with a hat, of course. Watching other people walking in, I realized not everyone had the same invite. Indeed, not even the cast were in 40’s costumes, but I felt fabulous and not dressed too far from my usual style.

The performance itself was really fun, we were seated at tables with wine and nibbles, and the cast and which included a very animated sound effects actor, were on the stage in front. Changing hats when changing character was a bit like being in one of those Dr De Bono  sessions, but it did the trick. The accents were fun and the character’s likable in most cases, the audience was encouraged to boo at those we weren’t supposed to be fond of.

A few drinks at The Smugglers in BasTard before heading home – beauty sleep required, especially as Sunday has a spa day at Carisma in store.
