After Sunday’s celebrations, we woke up with sore heads but luckily Monday was not going to be so full on. Chugging lots of water, we had a final stroll round the stalls to see if anything took our fancy. Afterwards, I met up with the lovely Lucy for a jazz dance class (I don’t think I was in the right frame of mind that day!).
Afterwards, I made a quick dash to Le Cafe de Bois de Jumeau to get my hair set for Ella’s (aka Miss Victory Violet) hair class, for which I was being used as a model. I washed my hair in the morning ready and popped on a turban to contain the fluff – it wasn’t too bad in the end!
I’ve met Ella on a few occasions but it’s always been at busy events. During Twinwood, it was good getting to know her better and talk more informally. I wasn’t feeling particularly fabulous after Sunday’s ciders so she bore witness to my grumpy/irritable side with Nick on the receiving end of it – poor bloke. With deft hands, Ella set my hair in no time!
It was odd not being a pupil in a hair class but it was really quite nice to sit back and see how everyone got on. Ella was a very calm and helpful teacher – exactly what you need as a beginner. I was lucky enough to have my hair brushed out and whipped into victory rolls at the end!
It was definitely worth heading home a bit later for, plus I got to hang out with fellow Miss Vintage gals, Mazzy and Ria. My dress deserves a special mention as it was made by my very good buddy Kelly for my birthday. It’s bright and colourful with mismatched buttons down the front. My favourite thing about this dress is that it has slightly different sized pockets – every time I tuck my hands in them, I’m reminded that it’s made by the hands of a brilliant human. Thank you Kelly!
After that, Nick and I swiftly went to gobble up our last crepes of the festival ready for the drive home.
Thanks for an epic weekend everyone – Twinwood, you’ve been marvellous! Here’s to next year…
