Crown and glory

MILLIE Whatever your thoughts on flower crowns, especially around festival season...(see Beyonce below) there's no doubt my pal Millie can pull one off. Hence my painted birthday card for her last week. I also used some gold ink for the birthday letters which can't be seen in the scan so well.

If you'd like a similar card for a friend, I am taking commissions, email me: nyongalice@googlemail.com.

May you all wear your crowns with pride/shame this summer. x

I'm a grown woman

   

On Friday I finally saw BEYONCE. Being friends with alot of guys I've seen every eye roll, and head shake, but shut up. Because I love her. The adrenaline rush was soooo crazy, she managed to make you feel like it was just you and her in the 02; her Southern drawl lamenting from the outset that this isn't the show to sit down and be cool, you get up and dance. Which is what Shane, Dee and I did.

I knew the words to every song to a worrying extent, except for her new song: Grown woman. The lyrics are "I'm a grown woman: I do whatever I want." New catchphrase. Her costumes were like a Southern diva Vegas showgirl, she soared across the audience on a wire and she showered us with glitter. By the end I was a whirling mess.
