It’s been a busy old week in Chez Williams. On Monday I had to go to the opticians, booo. I hate the opticians more than the dentist! I’m so blind (for anyone in the know my perscription is -7.00…that’s pretty darn short-sighted!) so it always feels like I’m going into an exam I can never pass. I needed new glasses but didn’t like any of the frames on offer so I snapped these Hello Kitty beauties from Tequila Star on etsy instead! I’m now trying to figure out if I look a bit too mental in them or just mental enough to be passable? What do we think?

For those wondering about the (excuse me, but) effing amazing photo at the top of this post – yes it’s me and I can’t hardly believe I look so glamorous! I had a shoot on Tuesday with the awesome Joanna Brown. It was a personal photography project of Jo’s that I was helping out with. She had me dressed as a 1950s housewife – a very different look for me indeed! I’ll be sharing the photos on the blog soon as I can. I hope you’ll enjoy seeing a very different and demure side to me.

Oh yes…and this is the Vegas wig! Cool huh? Oh how I wish my hair was this long and luscious in ‘real life’. Wearing this hair for a few shots really did help me get into character. In fact I might have to rock out this look more often.

Anyway, that’s enough about me for now! Let’s get on with some yummy treats shall we?
