What I've Been Up to - Pictures Galore

With Halloween nearly over I'm a little too excited about Christmas... I'm itching to put my sign up to start counting down the days to Christmas!

And with Christmas just around the corner, I've started baking again! I made this key lime pie last week and it was delicious!!! Seriously, key lime pie is one of the easiest things in the world to make and there are recipes all over the internet, so if you need a quick desert, try one of them! You won't be sorry... YUM!

After the GM for Junior League of London last week we all headed over to Mahiki for a few drinks. In case you're not familiar with Mahiki, it's a celebrity hot spot in London frequented by the likes of Kate Middleton and Kate Winslet among others. We just happened to be there on the 5th anniversary of the club opening, hence the Marilyn Monroe and Elvis impersonators.

Upon leaving Mahiki, I found this pretty pink telephone booth! Love!

On Friday I started the Halloween festivities by wearing my pumpkin headbobs to work!

And on my home I spotted a witch on the train! Halloween seems to be getting more and more popular in London... I'm not complaining!

We got all dressed up Friday night for the Junior League Halloween party. Mr. Julep was a Roman soldier.

And I decided to be a Greek Goddess!

The transformation began with hair & make-up... of course I couldn't resist false eyelashes and lots and lots of glitter!

Here's a close-up of my hair. I'm kind of proud of it to be honest - it took a lot of work!

And then we hopped on a bus to Chelsea for the party at Beaufort House, a fabulous hot spot on Chelsea's King's Road!

I can't believe we didn't get any proper photos, but here's one I snapped in the bathroom.

You can't tell in this photo, but it was so cold I opted for knit tights and my Tory Burch Revas instead of sandals... I was super comfy!

The only shot of the night of my handsome husband in his full Roman garb!

If you ever go to Beaufort House, I highly recommend you try a Sloane Sling, a lovely refreshing cocktail made with Kettle One Citron and a bunch of other yummy goodness!

Saturday night we had another party and putting on all the glitter and whatnot from the night before just seemed too hard, so we went as Butch & Bunny - tennis pros! It was a fun and comfy costume option!

I just wore my husband's pink Lacoste shirt, a hot pink tennis skirt I already had and an argyle sweater tied around my shoulders. I finished off the look with a monogrammed bag, pearls, a tennis racket and of course, a gin & tonic!

These guys got my vote for best dressed of the weekend! 5 guys dressed as KISS and Michael Jackson! They looked great!

I'm dressing up for work tomorrow, so I'll be sure to snap a photo! You guys will definitely appreciate tomorrow's costume, so I can't wait to share it!

Did you dress up for Halloween? What did you dress up as?
