Happy Monday

Today I’m grateful for… 
*sunshine!
*discovering new yoghurts ~ particularly Onken cherry Biopot & Activia probiotic lemon. Yum!
*cuddles with Drummer Boy this morning
*finding my house keys (they were lost for two days!)
*my friends for making being at work easier 🙂

1. Me & dad way back when
2,3 & 4 all pictures sat on my laptop for infinity! (sources unknown)

Five Images

Five images to share with you whilst I’m away splashing about on the Thames…

1. I love the childlike innocence of this drawing. And I really should start eating kiwi again! Follow the link to Sonicos! flickr for more cute illustrations.

2. I have no idea where I found this Pooh image but I LOVE the quote.

3. Love this tree image by Kailey Lang. Pop over & check out her DeviantArt.

4. So so true. When will we learn the impact we are having on our planet? Will we ever manage to stop being such a throwaway society?

5. Me (aged 16) & my brother (approx 11/12) near the Thames Barrier in London a million zillion years ago. Check out my pink jelly shoes!

Don’t forget about the August giveaway guys!


Turquoise

What can I say, I fancied a change from pink!

Love the bowl, it would look so pretty by my bedside table, maybe storing all my jewellery & hair bands.
LOVE this illustration.
How gorgeous is this necklace? I love it!
Turquoise doughnuts? Yes please! 
Love this necklace too. The designer is a graphic designer you should check out her shop. (link below).
I really really want this apron!
Couldn’t resist posting this bunny picture!
How awesome are these leg warmers?! Gorgeous.
Loving the seventies vibe of this picture.
This is Stef. She is partly responsible for the previous picture. She & her friend Erin run a mobile vintage shop & blog. It’s my new favourite read!
Work & life in general have been quite busy busy busy these last few days so my beloved laptop has been skulking in a corner! My summer project for my Art course came through, I have all necessary components to start work on the bridal necklace I’ve got to make, Drummer Boy had another gig, we had his daughter, A, over the weekend & now I’m off for a hen-do!
All very hectic but I’ll attempt to touch base & should have some great hen-do photos for you next week!

I absolutely love this design. It’s a Common Threadz tee. i absolutely love their tee’s! If you haven’t already checked them out then you really should. You can wear a cute tee & feel virtuous whilst doing it!


I love this little image! Unfortunately I have no idea where I got it from. Toy Story is however one of my all time favourite movies!


How absolutely gorgeous is this?! I want!


I believe this is a piece from Spell & The Gypsy Collective. I absolute love their jewellery it is absolutely amazing!

This handsome fella is my dad! This is back in the early seventies, before I came along! (Love you daddy!)

I’ve had a bit of a rough day today; I feel exhausted, work was rubbish, getting home was beyond a joke, my new bread rolls fell out of their packaging & on to the floor, & I stubbed my toe on the stairs. 
Therefore it is time for bed & I will wake up to a bright shiny new day! xoxox

The Pink Post

(all favim)
I’m working most of the weekend but I hope you all have a lovely one!


*Update* Working on a WIP that’s been floating around for an age, a leather cuff. Doing a tree-inspired design which should fit both of these challenges nicely… just need to finish it before the end of July!

Grateful

I just want to take a moment to tell you how grateful I am to be with the beautiful man laying beside me. I love him so very much. He’s semi-dozing whilst I tickle his feet & read my favourite blogs. He makes me so happy & makes me laugh.

His favourite things are drumming, skateboarding, his daughter, milk before bedtime, chocolate (especially Galaxy), cuddles & being tickled. Probably not in that order! I love you Drummer Boy xxx


Pink Friday

All pinkness found at weheartit. I think these Hello Kitty Vans are absolutely adorable… apparently we’ll be able to get our mitts on them come June from Vans online. My hand/wrist hasn’t gone back to normal yet, so no more typing from me, I’m going to come & read your blog instead 😉

PS. 5 inch and up is my new guilty pleasure… I absolutely love her style & some of the jewellery she features is insanely different…

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
