Organic Balmy Lip Balm and Goodwood Revival Outfit at Last

Posted: 31/08/11 10:57

Today I went to Old Spitalfields Market, to the Affordable Vintage Fair with Mr Pregnantcitygirl, Sister Pregnantcitygirl and Friend of Sister Pregnantcitygirl. We went to find me a vintage tent for Goodwood Revival (we are going over my Birthday weekend, the week I will be 31 weeks pregnant and very possibly huge!). I actually bought two beautiful 70's maxi dresses in Camden last week, both of which I would actually wear anytime, not just as fancy dress, however and disappointingly,having spent the best part of £50 on them, we found out that Goodwood Revival is really a nod to the 40's, 50's and 60's and not the 70's. My maxi dresses are a decade too young! Never fear, I've emailed them at Goodwood to see whether or not I'd 'fit in' and I'm hoping that the answer will be affirmative. In the meantime, here's the alternative bought for a mere £25 today. It also fits well, nice and stretchy, but the combination of the longer skirt and the big belly on my 5'1 and a half frame isn't the most flattering. Still, I'm pretty chuffed.

So here's to the quick shout out to a little luxury purchase today; The Ruby Red Organic Vanilla and Honey Lipbalm. Ruby Red London had a stall at the Vintage Fair and after having a smell and a smear of this sweet-smelling organic balm I was sold. I'm a sucker for product! Made from 100% natural, certified organic ingredients at their premises in Pinner, N. London this one came from a freshly made batch of 200 just made this week (no preservatives or chemical additives). The packaging is cute in a little eco pot and my lips are now kissably soft and smooth. At £5 a pot and available online if you follow the link below to their online shop this would make a great little gift for yourself or if you aren't as selfish as I am, for someone else!
