Happy Guy Fawkes to any Brits out there! Ok, so really, it's a rather odd holiday to be celebrating what is essentially UK's first terrorist attack (Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605) but hey it's fireworks galore. I have a slight addiction to that smoky smell in the crisp cold air after a fireworks display. That and toffee apples and sparklers so it's all round fun fun fun for me. As I headed down to Battersea Park last night with what seemed like the entire population of London, I noticed gangs of girlies getting sparkle happy with some fun outfits that were dressy and casual at the same time. Prom dresses with trainers, glitter scarves with t-shirts. Nobody told me Guy Fawkes meant dress up time but it does make sense. Why let the fireworks do all the shining?
