Months ago I received an email from May who was organising her friends hen party and was looking for someone to come along and do the bride and the girls nails. Obviously I was happy to help as hen parties are awesome fun! She wasn’t sure on numbers, so I asked Janine to come with to do half the ladies.
A few days before, May confirmed there would be six ladies wanting gel manicures; I was thinking about cancelling Janine but as it was such short notice I realised that would be a bit unfair. Janine and I met in sunny Clapham Junction for a little catch up before taking the short bus journey to Southfields!
We set up in the front room and started pampering the ladies one by one, after doing two each, thinking “nearly done, sunshine and a beer garden her I come”, May popped in and asked if we could stay a bit longer? Janine had to leave at 5.30pm as she had other clients and all I was doing was meeting the boyf and another friend for a bite to eat later, so I told her I was happy to stay. Janine left after we’d done five clients each, I then stayed on and did another six!
I was more than happy to stay as the girls were all so lovely and friendly. When I finished, I was presented with a nice glass of Prosecco, as well as a bottle to take home! Such lovely hens! I’m hoping to meet some of them again soon to do nails just before the wedding. That’s if the dates all work out as the wedding is the same weekend I move house!
The previous weekend a bunch of us went to the Prince of Wales rooftop in Brixton for some rooftop terrace fun. It’s great up there, dancing away in the sunshine! When we got there we noticed a load of girls with glitter on, all the girls I was with decided to get glittered up too! As I’m sure you’ll know I am a huge fan of anything sparkly! The sun was setting and one of my friends came running up to us ‘the glitter girls are packing away, they’ll stay for us but we have to go NOW!’ We ran downstairs and I was not disappointed. I was decorated with lovely gold glitter around my eye!! My friend Angela is a huge Bowie fan and had the Ziggy Stardust lightning bolt! The glitter girls company was called ‘Shine Shack’ and after a quick google I found out I can buy their glitter online! Perfect for Bestival in September… which I’m going to… YAY!
