Time for celebration.....a family graduation and the upcoming Olympics!

Across the Thames.....
What better time to celebrate than now my darlings......especially if you are in London and happen to be British! I must say that I am utterly proud to be British and can not love London even more than I already do, especially after the 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony! To me, London is not really a city that  needs to compete with other cities....once you have seen the beauty and uniqueness of London, you will either faithfully fall in love with her as I have done, or perhaps find her a little too much to tolerate and gravitate elsewhere. I love the vibrancy, resilient history, demureness, elegance and integrity that is the London I have come to know....so I was utterly excited when I saw fragments of Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, Mr Bean, Sir Paul McCartney and of course the Royal Family being part of the Olympic Opening Ceremony! So in keeping with the current tide of celebration, I decided to do a post on a recent look and hairstyle I sported at a recent family graduation at the Royal Festival Hall, which was followed by afternoon Dim Sum at Jade Garden restaurant in London's Chinatown!

Dim Sum time!

*Just in case you might be wondering how the hairdo was created, here is a very quick and simple photo How-To (please ask if you need more clarification):
First step to create this hairdo, I braided my hair from the left side of my hair parting across to the bottom right or nape of my neck and continued to the end.

Step two; roll up from the end of the braid and tuck in towards the head to create the side bun at the nape of the neck. Then secure with bobby pins and decorate with  a bow!

With my cat BouBou!  ^_^
And last but not least, a very Big THANK YOU goes out to all you lovely darlings for your continued support as I am really excited my little blog has passed 20,000 views! As the Olympics takes over London, I shall also be thinking of ways to wear my little patriotic emblem of support.....which I shall disclose in a following post! I shall also be attending the Victoria and Albert Museum's Ballgown Exhibition and 'Utterly Elegant' evening on Friday 3rd August 2012 with some friends.....so an utterly elegant evening look is also in the thinking pipes and shall be revealed next time! [For more information on the 'Utterly Elegant' event click here: www.exhibitionroadshow.co.uk/3-august/utterly-elegant] And of course my close friend Bee is back in town for a visit....so there will be much to do and see in the coming week! So here's wishing you lovely darlings a fabulous week that is hopefully filled with sunshine and love!

Until the next time,
May xx
