Perfect Sunny Summer Day
One of the best ways to spend a nice sunny summers day is with lots of lovely ladies, great fashion and not to forget bubbly and cupcakes. At the Ladies Day at Bramhall cricket club, we did not only get that but also further entertainment via a cricket game and the chance to contribute to some good causes, supporting the “Target Ovarian Cancer” charity.
Fashion SOS – The Runway Show
The fashion show was supplied by SOS Fashion in Bramhall and as you can see in the pictures they had a great selection of fashion. Mosts runway shows that I would usually attend are plus-size (PSF Days, Plus North). SOS Fashion does however not really offer plus-fashion I was still able to appreciate the fashion as they were showing off some great and interesting styles some of them even bit out of the norm or even a little quirky. I guess I will be keeping my eyes open for some dupes soon.
Here is a selection of a few pieces. I did unfortunately miss some great pieces as there were some issues with the camera which also caused most of the pictures to come out a little bit dark.
Although there weren’t quite what I would call Plus-Size Models on the runway it was nice to see at least a little size diversity, as much as I guess the collection allowed, and to see some curves here and there. Ultimately, it is a real shame that the majority of pieces did not come in plus size, except for one or the other, still lovely, beachwear piece that came in one-size. I ultimately ended up buying a kaftan myself.
You won’t be able to miss the stunning hair. For a few minutes, I actually thought they had cast the models based on their stunning curls, but the more models were walking down the runway it became more and more impossible to find that many women with that stunning hair! These masterpieces are the work of Eds Hair who have salons in Salford and Bramhall.
I actually ended up on one table with Ed himself and his team, a lovely guy. Well, not only him, all of them were lovely. It turns out most of the models have very straight hair and they did spend hours chopstick curling their hair followed by braiding in the sides, leaving them with this lovely somewhat Brazilian looking style. Since then I am really tempted to
Since then I am really tempted to get a chopstick curler myself, with £19.99 they are not too expensive, but I don’t think I would really have the patience to properly chopstick curl all my hair. I have heard of some people using straighteners and a pencil, but I guess that would take even longer. So if I would ever try it, I guess I would rather invest the £20 than try employ one of the complicated hacks I have seen so far.
The only thing that made that day even better were the yummy treats. Awesome little cheesecakes, scrummy scones with cream and strawberries and sweet cute cupcakes. I was so distracted by the yummy food that I completely forgot to properly take pictures, not to forget that Ed (from Ed’s Hair) kept filling up my glass… But we bloggers so often anyway experience events so often more through the lens rather than really being there and once in a while it is nice to forget the blogging for a little while and just enjoy the day.
Ovarian Cancer, Breast Cancer’s Step-Sister.
A great day and a lot of fun for a great cause. I was surprised how little I knew myself about ovarian cancer.
By now most of us are quite aware of breast cancer and how to check for it, but only very few of us ladies are really aware of ovarian cancer and its symptoms and ultimately when it comes to cancer the earlier it is caught the better are the chances. According to Target Ovarian Cancer only 3% of women in the UK feel very confident about naming an ovarian cancer symptom.
