This weekend was the 10th anniversary of the Tate Modern. As a celebration they had a mini festival and group installation exhibition, No Soul For Sale. Went to check it oot with Gracie Cheeks and her Auntie MJ. The turbine hall had been turned into an adult sized play pit. Artists from all over the world had about 2meters squared to do what ever they wanted. Amazing pictures, stories, videos, performances... but the best bits were the tactile interactive parts... A forest of paper ribbons and the whirlwind snowstorm of stickers saying LOCAL ARTIST.
Rather hooked on the double jacket combo at the moment. Last week I was hot for denim/leather, this week it's a love affair between the denim and the vintage woolen Adidas jacket. This button up woolen Adidas jacket is from late 60's and is my single most treasured item of clothing. I have never seen anything like it. And 100% hooked on the pattern pile up. Lots of different tartans and stripes on overload!
SNOWSTORM DES ARTISTES!!
Made friends with the little people. More museums should have stuff of this ilk. Sometimes museums are stuffy and awkward and people feel shy to use them. But with something like this everybody loses their inhibitions, you get involved and the museum feels like it's as much yours as everyone else's.
Cute brogues paired with psychedelic spirals aka stripes.
Bright Red Nana shoes from charity shop. Oh! And a new haircut!
THANKS FOR ALL THE LOVELY COMMENTS ON THE LAST POST. BORO LOVE TO YOU ALL x

Once again, a Mommy Reunion in London!! This time I (Mommy M) went down to London with Michael and the boys to see Michael's favourite band, Pavement (2nd time afte Glasgow last week, it was RAD) and of course met Mommy E beforehand!
Without planning it, our shoes were absolutely matching! Pretty mind blowing, I know.

Bonjour fellow bloggers. I am just gonna take this moment to say hats off to my fellow BOROer Mamam Margaux because she has been looking fierce. Margaux is hotter than a French kiss in Paris and harder than a Glasgow kiss in Scotland.
Got a wee birthday party to attend tomorrow. The day time is a fancy dress punt down the river in Oxford (photos to follow), but this is what I'm gonna be sporting for the evening do.
Finally got myself a pair of heeled desert boots. I was searching for a nice nude/beige pair and then when it come down to crunch time I found myself leaving with a black pair. What do you know? I have been wanting to team them with some stripey socks and then I thought why not go the whole multicoloured way. This is a dress I found in a vintage shop, the lady in the shop said it was a theatre costume... I like to think it was from Fiddler On The Roof... any other suggestion? A lovely dress maker I know, Avelina, was kind enough to shorten it for me, take off the sleeves and give it a scoop neck. Before it was rather dowdy, but I could not resist the print. I've also wanted a cropped tuxedo jacket for ages and found this one for a tenner.
Love a bargain supreme!
Wishing you all a belter of a weekend. Grzbezos xx
