I’ve been to an incredibly exciting sporting event since my last blog – not something I do very often, but I’m so glad my hubby persuaded me! It was at the Olympic velodrome in east London, aka the Lee Valley Velopark, and we spent a fabulous Saturday night watching Six Day London. If you’re into cycling you’ll know all about it; for those who aren’t, it’s an international cycling event where top riders battle it out in London, Berlin, Amsterdam and Copenhagen to reach the spectacular final which will be in Mallorca in March.
It was amazing, like being at a big party – food, wine, and a DJ blasting out great music, while super-famous cyclists like Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish did their thing all around us. My hubby even got to shake Bradley’s hand, which completely thrilled him (he’s a massive cycling fan). I really wasn’t that keen to go, but I absolutely loved it. That’ll teach me to say “yes” more often – you can miss out on fabulous things, can’t you, if you say no just because you’re not sure you’re going to enjoy something?
Talking of fabulous – and to completely change the subject – I was delighted to see that our Beauty Pick of the Month for November comes from one of my very favourite cosmetic brands, Tarte. I adore their mascara so this is right up my street – a three-piece mascara “wardrobe” with a curler, a primer and the brilliant Lash Paint Mascara. Highly recommended.
Finally, a picture for the dog lovers. A gorgeous puppy has been named after Cora Baxter, the heroine of my series of murder mystery novels (the second one came out in October)! I was sent a photo of gorgeous Cora so thought I’d share it with you – how cute she is! I’m very touched indeed, so thank you Richard and Katrina.
See you soon,
Love Jackie x
