*(aka panic buying of formal dresses & panic extreme exercise)
It all kicked off at the weekend. I suddenly realised it was 2 weeks to the IN Glamour Awards and I still hadn't sorted a dress. I realised all this while stuffing my face with a creme egg.
Panic number 2 swiftly set in - I'll never fit into a slinky dress and will look like a heifer beside Tiffany Brien (aka Peanut Butter Girl and ex Miss NI, who is sitting at my table).
So I decided the answer was to climb a mountain. Here I am at the top of Cavehill (Belfast's mountain) wearing my new Target Dry Aintree Coat because every trip out of my garden is an outfit photo opportunity after all!

All Weather Boots - Sorel
Red Marl Top - Primark
Navy Jeggings - Heatons
'A Coat with a View'....
So all that exertion took my mind off formal dresses and flabby thighs and seriously - if you live near Belfast, get yourself up this hill - the views are incredible!
Two hours later and in more pain than I care to admit, I was still a size 12 but I'm sure I burned off the creme egg...and I still have about 10 days left to be good.
Meanwhile, 24 hours on from the original panic, it transpired my slightly tipsy bid on one completely tiny size 10 dress had been a winner, I had two PR dress offers AND three dress offers from friends...
#operationformaldress Part 2 is coming up tomorrow where I share with you some of these dresses. I've just done the photos and I'm feeling even more panicked!
