Folks it’s been a whole year today since Modedelaminx first graced your screens.

I can’t believe how time has flown, probably because so very much has happened in my life in such a tight frame. I mean, I’ve changed jobs, been unemployed, had a legal battle, was halfway up the aisle, bought a wedding dress, lost love, gained loves, been flat broke, lived as a hermit, traveled, and found a shit load of awesome clothes.
To be frank it’s been tough. Too tough to even talk about on the old blog until now really I guess. I’ve had a bit of a staccato writing rhythm due to all of the above. However, I must add all of the above has also flavoured my writing; enabled me to be frank, be bold, witty and given me a “fuck it” stance on how I deliver my daily events. I must say, all in all I have enjoyed blogging; it has well and truly acted as a crutch to my recently crippled optimism and general outlook in life. Why? Perhaps because I find it so difficult to talk on a one-to-one personal level nowadays *cue awkward silence* …because when so much of you is worn on your sleeve, you leave yourself open and vulnerable to humiliation, critique and disappointment. Not always – openness can be rewarding also; it can introduce those foreign to honesty to a sense of truthfulness I suppose. Not forgetting to mention, a lot of the events have been awfully hard to pinpoint cause or effect, yet on reflection are direct causes and effects of each other – each sad event a variable in an equation of ultimate misfortune.
Not all bad over here though… A whole new world has opened following the ibis I fell into by chance – with it has come friends, contacts, pleasure, joy, entertainment and above all STYLE. Like a butterfly I am emerging from this shit-coated cocoon and spreading those once-crippled wings.
Thank you fellow bloggers, followers, friends, and the stalker I now appear to have (when dates go seriously wrong).

You have given me LIFE

Happy Birthday Modedelaminx

La Minx



Hey guys, 

Firstly, apologies for yet another hiatus. My short little Christmas break turned easily into a month long dormancy. Super Sorry. 

Work was pretty grim over Christmas; long hours, people jumping infront of trains causing massive delays to my commutes and traumatising sleeps in the most budget hotel ever… By the time I finally had some time off, I found myself run down with some super-bug. Pissed. So my Christmas wasn’t exactly, “Deck the halls with bells and holly”… it was more “Minx, the red nosed and infected.”

Then there was New Year’s, which usually means too much alcohol consumption by me and everyone around me. Last year, my fiance and I got so drunk, we had to take it in turns to throw up in the toilet – carefully choreographed regurgitation. At one point – and I’m sure I will remember this well into our old age – he (selfishly and coldly) pushed me out of the way and I had to resort to the bathroom sink. He, later that week, was the unlucky one who had to unblock that very sink. Revenge is sweet. 

This NYE was a much more chilled affair, a friends PJ party was relaxed, cosy, full of fun and we even got a full cooked breakfast the next morning. No throwing up whatsoever.

That hiatus from vomit didn’t last long though, as last night I booked a pleasant little bar called Barrio North for the big quarter-of-a-century, its a wonderful little South Americana Vintage dig, with an awesome caravan boothe. As my friends flowed through the door, the drinks flowed to my liver – after a few hours I was finished, and so was that so-called hiatus. Sorry Barrio, that SPEW that probably didn’t reach the basin and most likely decorated your colourful walls, was my gift to you… For making absolutely lethal (yet amazing) cocktails and having the audacity to have an extended “happy-hour” which my friends casually abused.



All I can say is that until the wee hours of the morning, I cried out for my mother, to God, to a Doctor or frankly anyone who could help my poor intestines from packing up and leaving my toxic and saturated body. After some good old OJ and a fried egg, some painkillers, lots of sleep and some attention from mummy, I am now able to legibly type again. 


So Happy New Year, and a Merry-Belated Christmas Friends, Bloggettes and Followers..

Got some great posts coming up!

Oh and remember to drink responsibly…
