The day that Gabriela and I have been waiting for for months has finally arrived, the day on which we get to honour our favourite goddess of Nitrate, Miss Joan Crawford! We cannot wait to read your contributions!

Gabriela and I will be hosting all three days jointly, so you can comment on either of our arrival posts with your entry, send it to us on twitter or to Gabriela’s email at

We so hope you enjoy the blogathon as much we know we will! So let’s get on with it as Joan always did so stylishly!
