A big thank you for all your lovely message on my Goodwood post because....I WON, and I’m sure it’s all because of the good vibes you sent in your messages, lol. I’m not only excited because I’ve won, but because my entry wasn’t simply ‘pulled out of a hat’, it was chosen by Vintage at Goodwood organiser Wayne Hemingway. So one of my bestests, Faye, and I are off to Goodwood from the 13th until the 15th. Accommodation wasn’t included in the prize and I was a bit worried that everywhere nearby was going to be booked up, but I managed to book us into a lovely B&B nearby. The rooms and gardens look lovely, and it didn’t break the bank.

After inviting Faye, the first thing she said was ‘Oh my God, what am I going to wear?’. My answer? ‘I really wouldn’t worry about it because everyone’s going to be so ridiculously cool and vintagesque that we’re going to look totally ordinary anyway’. So that’s that sorted. I’m going to be working hard carbooting and ebaying so that I can buy lots of lovely things while I’m there, and the list of things needed for the new house may have to temporarily go on hold. I think it’s highly likely that I’ll be coming back with something like this, or this.


  1. OMG that's fantastic! I bet you won't look 'ordinary'. Ooh now I'm all jealous, I wanna go too. Make sure you take lots of photos to show us. x
