hats off!

Given an influx of cash I thought I’d take myself shopping! I’ve been hankering after a hat of this shape for some time and after asking a girl in the street where she bought hers I decided to take a trip to h&m. Not normally a place I venture out to as I admit I can at times be a bit of a second hand snob. However after a glimpse around urban outfitters springs bits (i always love urban outfitters!) and Primark's excellent range of printed leggings I may be wearing more high street this spring!

Keep an eye out for the hat induced outfits over coming weeks!

Spring has sprung!

Today before work i took myself for a walk in the sun for some extra exercise, and what a joy it was, it was warmer, the sun was shining and finally I thought that winter might finally coming to an end. Which means.......... S/S 2012! yay! go treat yourself to any fashion mag and get inspired by the new season trends. One of my favourite featured is the 'fondant' trend! All lovely icing themed colours as seen above. Also to be seen a continued trend with florals, but in bloom print, less chintzy than previous years. As well as scarf print, tribal and metallics to name a mere few! i better get sewing!

Happy Valentines day!

Well that day has come, everyone in a relationship smugly goes out for dinner and us mere singletons commiserate alone………… WRONG!

I decided to make yet more jewellery from bits I had left from my last attempt, as well as a newly acquired broken pocket watch face, some peacock feathers very kindly donated to me by a housemate, as well as some random charms. I am so pleased with the results, who says you need a boyfriend to have fun on valentines…… haha!
