Day 83: Positive Image Winter Solstice Party! 9 days to go!

Kat doodles about life:

Since coming home at 7 am, I spend most of the day in bed and when I woke up the time got spent by wandering around the house, cooking, eating, and getting ready for long anticipated party. Positive Image organized a very special treat after their art charity auction in a form of decadent 1920’s themed Winter Soltice Party! As you know, I do not like dressing up, but I am glad I did as the venue, where it was held, was a very stylish secret bar called Milkthisle, right in the heart of Bristol city centre. I have walked past many times, not knowing there is such a space, as you have to ring a bell and wait for someone to open the door for you. One of the companies I worked for even had an office two doors down and Bristol Backpackers hostel, where I lived on few occasions,  is in that same street. Even nine years later, Bristol does not stop to surprise me or it might be the case of me not getting out that much. I suggest you check it out yourself and get amazed by three floors of fantastic interiors, which took me back to my childhood, when visiting my grandparents’ home with dark wooden furniture, up to the ceiling bookcases full of classics and the grand piano. As we were all dressed up the part, it all felt like we are at someone’s house party sitting in very comfy leather armchairs, sofas and or wandering around the house to see what is going on in different rooms. And there was the great funky music and the Djs. By the end of the night the intimate atmosphere made everyone talking to each other making new friends and having a great time. Well certainly I did, getting to point of doing my signature move of Russian dancing and spinning around countless times. Oh that was fun! And all for the support of Children’s Hospice Soutwest. There was a group of us coming back home together, so I whipped some pasta pesto with feta cheese to make us all happy and we continued the party. I cannot wait for the Summer Soltice 2014!

Day 25: Exciting invitation to a Blog Party! 67 days to go!

Kat recommends:

So since I should be writing two posts today and running out of time, I decided to dedicate this one to an exciting invitation: Blog Party! As I already featured Mason Bentley Style as one of my recent favourites, Kate came up with great idea to celebrate her recent blog and label split with a party, which may open up to new exciting opportunities. So if you have a blog or if you just fancy spending this Sunday reading other bloggers’ work, (and dress up, drink, eat and dance as you like, because you should not get embarrassed doing that in your home) feel free to click here: http://maisonbentleystyle.com/2013/10/24/blog-paaardy/ and join in. You can post your blog link to the comments and most preferably prepare a post on Saturday night, so it is fresh and early up and running on Sunday morning for everyone to see and read. It is an exciting way how to get more readers, learn something new and as our local Bristol weather forecast says only wind and rain, it is a perfect excuse to “stay in and party”. So there it is PARTY ON! Love Kat xx

THE GREAT GATSBY
