One Day

One day Red awoke to a cloudy overcast morning. As she rubbed her eyes blearily she realised she was incredibly hungry so she got up & made breakfast, adding a dash of pepper.
She gazed longingly at the paper cranes in the hallway & dreamt of faraway places…
She sighed & turned to her sewing machine to put in her full day’s work.
Suddenly she spotted a pair of glittery red Dorothy shoes, she gasped in delight & slipped her feet into them.
Before she knew it she had tapped her feet together & was standing by a bowl of juicy raspberries  she popped one into her mouth, snatched up the cute animal rucksack from the side, grabbed an umbrella & with love in her heart disappeared out through the door…

Pink Monday

It’s been grey & gloomy & drizzly all day today & now finally at 6.15pm the sun is finally trying to break through! Lovely English weather. Today was my last day off before returning to work tomorrow & that and the weather have left me feeling a little down… so I decided it was time for a pink post!

Here’s a particularly dodgy pic of me taken with my webcam.. I was hoping to show you my newly-purple hair & my new Volcom t-shirt that I got from here but you can’t see it too well so here it is properly…

I love it! We do think the owls eyes are kind of trippy-hypnotic though… anyway i’m going to get some earrings made up tonight & watch a bit of BBC iplayer and hopefully get a bit of an early-ish night! Hope you’ve enjoyed your Bank Holiday weekend xox

Pink Wednesday

(All pictures sourced from weheartit)
I’m particularly loving the last one… how gorgeous it would be to randomly stumble upon that!
So I turned 33 in December & I can honestly say that I didn’t achieve much of my ‘Before I’m 33 Wish List’! I did re-read quite a few of my favourite childhood books… Winnie-The-Pooh, Enid Blytons Faraway Tree, The Chronicles of Narnia & Tiger Eyes by Judy Blume… a real favourite of mine.

I never did get round to wearing an entirely red outfit but I did get a gorgeous 60’s style red dress, a red cardigan & a lovely gigantic red bag for Christmas! & with the red hair…. wouldn’t mind a pair of red skinny jeans a la Mischa Barton though…

I didn’t donate blood which is bad of me but I guess I’m more squeamish than I thought… my attempt at going to the cinema 12 times wasn’t even close! I think I went maybe three times in the end! I didn’t go to the ballet but I did make it to Scotland, although only for a week with work. I’ve yet to go back to be a tourist 🙂
Off to update the list for turning 34….. xox

Pink Tuesday

(All sourced from weheartit) I couldn’t resist the ice skater shot this morning… she looks so graceful, like a bird about to take flight. I absolutely love watching ice skating. Like many little girls I wanted to be an ice skater! I grew up in the Torville & Dean years though so maybe it had a particularly special glamour 🙂 The My Little Pony is another hark back to a 1980’s childhood, tee hee, I used to absolutely adore mine! They’re around again now… how I wish I’d kept my original ones xox

How cute are Good Night John & Jane? I found them over at Polka Dot Rabbit… No idea where the Polaroid picture came from but isn’t it awesome?? (If anybody knows could you leave me a comment? x)… I just think the girl covered in fur looks so dreamy (& I have that exact bedframe!)… loving the ballerina… both from weheartit… those love heart tights are super awesome! Where do they come from?! Anyone? (Source unknown)… pink bunny ears on red hair… cute.. (weheartit)… Braveness – so true (source unknown)… a room filled with balloons… one day I’ll do that for someone, it looks beautiful (weheartit)… beautiful bird necklace by Joanna Rutter & lastly this beautiful box full of folded paper hearts found on weheartit. I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend! xox

Friday Fashion…

So I have an obssession with stripes, and polka dots, & knee high socks and bobbed hair & rock chick tees…
and scarves and tights… these are a few of my favourite fashion finds… I love the casual indie thrown-together boho look but I also adore the retro put-together 40/50/60’s styles that you find… &
 right now I’m LOVING yellow!
