Post #11: The Argentinian - part deux

Dating Rule #7: Holiday romances belong on holiday.

The Argentinian might be adventurous, and very creative in his use of furniture, but there is a lot to be said for having a brain as well as brawn. I've decided four weeks is as long as an intelligent woman can survive on a big cock alone without being able to make stimulating conversation.

Which is my way of saying that I am once again single, without my Facebook status ever having changed.

No matter. I'm too busy this weekend anyway to give him much thought. Wasn't yesterday's Pride Parade fun? And tonight I'm heading to Southbank to see the Symphony of a Thousand with Amelia.
Roll on a glorious, busy summer!

Post #10: Royal Ascot 2014

Ascot Week - and trust me, we weren't there for the horses.

Day 1 was all work, but Ladies Day was all play.

I went monochrome in a Donna Karan pants suit with Rene Caovilla heels and not a feather or flower in sight. Dignity is my middle name (or it was, until about the fourth glass of champagne).

While my own personal style doesn't extend to festooning my head with wildlife, if you are going to wear a florist shop on your head, it might as well be one of these:

Classy look (love the gloves!) from VogueUK

But the Class Award goes to....

Post #9: Far from home

I don't often feel homesick, but this weekend I'm missing Paris. Perhaps it was spending the bank holiday weekend at Antibes. Perhaps it's because I've done nothing but work all this last week and I'm tired. Or perhaps because it was Grandmaman's birthday this last week and I wasn't there.

So to cheer me up I did the next best thing. I opened a bottle of Bordeaux and went online, and I stumbled across a blog that should be a must read for anyone travelling to Paris who isn't interested in the package tour end of the market: Messy Nessy Chic.

I particularly enjoyed this post on 12 places to dine a la Belle Epoque. I am sad to say I have only ever visited two on the list. I will need to rectify that on my next trip home. Which might not be any time soon if work or my eldest brother have anything to do with it. (Long story and best left for a time when  haven't had half a bottle of wine).

Post #8: The Argentinian

Summer is always a busy time at work for me, but this last week feels like it's been the busiest ever. Free cocktails, lots of free product samples, a reason for a new dress, and a chance to show off the Argentinian at a client's summer party (God, he's so gorgeous. That chest! Those arms!), and last night he took me to Dralion, the Cirque du Soleil show at the O2 - but it's also been a week of long hours at the office. And anyone who knows me knows that long hours at the office are really not my thing.

The one thing that made the entire week worthwhile? Let's just say that lingerie I've been saving for a special occasion finally got to see the light of day.

And now you also know why this post is mercifully short and has no pictures. It's time for the teddy to come off.

Post #7: Book Review - High

Thank God. A quiet weekend at last. (Aside from the Katy Perry concert at the O2 on Friday night. Yes, I'm a fan. Don't mock me.)

Today I finished reading High by Zara Cox and she's just shot up to the top of my favourite authors' list. Who would have thought that an erotica that doesn't have sex for probably the first quarter would be able to hold me so gripped?

The sexual tension between these characters is so hot, hot, hot that quite frankly the book doesn't need sex to be one of the most erotic books I've read. The scene in the airport where Zachary pats Bethany down is incredibly intense, and it just keeps getting better from there.

I bought the book on my Kindle. You can find it here: Amazon UK.

This is the first in the Indigo Lounge series, and there's another book out, Higher. Bring it on!
