Ladette to Lady

The holiday's are approaching and I'm starting to think about the up coming parties I will be attending on my Husband's arm.

This mean's frocks and gowns and heels and red lipstick (you know it) and chiffon's and plucking and all about general glamoring ones self up. Now, I'm all up for this, in fact I look forward to these 2 months out of 12 where I can actually pretend to be a lady. You see, I don't get many reasons to wear a glamorous frock and when I do get the chance I like to go all out with the image. Fool people into believing I'm actually a respectable lady who does yoga in her spare time (spare time?!) and would never dream of making cookies just so she could lick the spoon (today is my third day in a row!... I'm oddly proud of this).

But...Well, Nothing speaks louder volumes than a chick wearing a ball gown and chugging down a pint of larger, right?

The thing is, I'm not into wine. I'm actually (and this may surprise you) not a big fan of alcohol. I like a beer, and I like (LOVE. WOULD MARRY) a frozen margarita. But I don't like to actually taste the alcohol. So I've never been a fan of wine and never drink it. It's only in recent weeks that I've decided to bare through it and drink the stuff until I learn to like it.

I've always wanted to be one of those women who can recommend a good bottle of wine and can match wine to food. I need to learn how to appreciate wine and enjoy it.

So I've decided I will buy one bottle of plonk a week, probably chosen from one of Pam's reviews over at Sidewalk shoes. I trust Pam's taste and now technically it's in someone else's court if I don't like the stuff. Sorry Pam ;)

I'll let you all know how it goes. :)

I never liked wine until the past few years after I had Bella! I love it now. Nothing is more relaxing than a glass of {white} wine.

I drink white bc, well, if I spilled red on me or my carpet?! I would die :)

I'm to check off this fab blog you recommended. Cheers!

I love formal functions. The glitz and glam and music. Everyone looking their best. Sadly, besides the annual X-mas parties we don't do it often enough. What I sometimes miss are hectic New Years parties. But then I look at my precious child on New Years and wouldn't want it any other way.

Alcohol consumption...Hmmm...I can't do beer unless its so cold I can't get a whiff of it. G&T is my poison of choice when I do drink. Its kind of an all day drink so you don't feel like 'Is it right to order THIS drink at THIS time?'

Love your blog and the issues you raise.
