SOUTH @ VERY DRESS // MONSOON CARDIGAN // TKMAXX BAG // HANDMADE NECKLACE // PRIMARK HAIR SLIDE // RING FROM THE JOSHUA TREE, PWLLHELI // WATCH - CHRISTMAS GIFT // NEXT SANDALS
I curled my hair again, this time I used those cheap bendy foam roller things, and they gave me these looser curls. They took a lot less time to use too, so I'll save the pin curling for when I want super big candyfloss hair. Wearing a new dress from Very, it also comes in blue, but I liked the yellow daisy print better. I don't really own much yellow, but I think it goes quite nicely with my hair.
Carl & I were in St Albans again, where we took these photos. It's been lovely weather recently, I actually got badly sunburnt a few days before, which was stupid of me. I've now stocked up with factor 50 sunscreen & some aloe vera gel (upon the recommendation of an instagram follower), which has helped so much - thank you! There were lots of baby swans and ducklings at the lake, which were adorable. A pair of doves also followed us for a bit, I think they wanted food, but we didn't have any to give them. Next time I'll try and be more prepared.

NEW LOOK TOP // DOROTHY PERKINS SKIRT // VERY CARDIGAN // LE BUNNY BLEU SHOES // SWATCH CARAMELLISSIMA // MEADHAM KIRCHOFF TOPSHOP HAIR BOW // MERRYFIELD POTTERY BISCUIT BROOCHES // MOONBUNNY BEAR RING
Today I have crazy poodle hair, and I love it! I did my hair in pin curls last night, for the first time ever, and this morning I unpinned & brushed though, & ended up with candyfloss hair. I might have to do this more often, it took about 30 minutes to pin it, which isn't too bad, considering the amount of hair I have. I usually don't do much with my hair, and prefer low effort things (I usually keep it braided when I am home), so this was a nice change.
I was sent this top by New Look Inspire recently, isn't it lovely? The back has this lovely double bow detail, & the fact it's pink makes me happy. I wore it with this skirt I bought from Dorothy Perkins a little while ago, I can't get enough of broderie trim skirts, and this one has a coral lining which makes it look pinkish.

I bought this plain wooden dining table & chairs from Argos a while ago, and painted it to make it more me! I took inspiration from some Cath Kidston plates I have, and did a scalloped edge design with rose centre on the table, & then painted all the chairs different pastel shades. This took what seemed like forever, the chairs were actually the hardest part, because they were so fiddly to paint and varnish.
The lovely people over at Joules recently sent me this duvet cover & matching pillowcases. The design is lovely, and the fabric sooo soft compared to all my other duvet covers. Definitely the most luxury bedding I own, now to get some sheets that match!
Today I made this lampshade, using this kit I bought on Amazon. I used my leftover Spoonflower fabric, and made it in about 30 mins or so. It's not perfect, but not bad for a first attempt. There was lots of leftover tape, so I also added some lace that I had to accent the edges. What do you think?
Finally, how cute is my kettle? I keep calling it a teapot, because it looks so much like one. It's ceramic, I'd been putting off buying a kettle for ages because I couldn't find any I liked, but then I spotted this one at Dunelm Mill, & had to get it.
