Print dress: MNG by Mango (so so old), Suede jacket: Bershka, wedge sandals: Bershka
I'll let you steal a peek of what I wore to my first night out in light years. I'd been cooped up at home so long that going out meant playground or grocery shopping. Then the opportunity came and my sister-in-law refused to push it back another month so we went. All the same I could not contain my excitement as I put second and third layer of eyeshadow across my lids. I got pretty excited pretty fast. I didn't drink but danced insanely in front of a big baby with an enormous pacifier dangling on his neck, two half-naked cowboys and a multitude of hen/stag night attendants. I ignored most of the glances and returned maybe two dancing in this blissful state of not needing to attract anybody with my embarrassing dance moves. And head shakes. 

I could get used to it - I thought chasing the straw in the glass with my mouth - get pampered, indulge my desire to show off new dress each week until my tired self thanked me the next morning for not being twenty anymore and having other stuff on my greying head instead of overachieving the impossible. I was thrilled like crazy at how up late I stayed that night and how much I can have done while I'm sleep-deprived the next day. Nadia trained me well.

From other news I'm happy to announce I'll be guest posting on second Saturday each month about raising a girl and staying in shape (like what?) over at Vegan Housewives website. My first appearance is scheduled on October the 12th so do not hesitate to head over to say hi. I'll be happy to serve you a warm tea on arrival and hand cookies to your kids.
