Shine Out Like Sunbeams

A few photos from a walk I went on with my friends a while back. The sun actually showed its face for once so we made the most of it. I chose some of my favourites to share with you :) It's really annoying me that the pictures aren't the same size but oh well.
My lovely friend Hannah (looking pweetttyyy in blue) has recently started a blog so if you want to say hi she would really appreciate it, and you can find her here.
None of my other friends have blogs but the do have tumblr's which can be found here and here
I hope its been sunny where you live too ^_^
Lots of Love

ModCloth Style Storyboard Challenge

So I was asked to participate to in the ModCloth Style Storyboard Challenge and I thought It looked like fun, so here we are. I was given this lovely galaxy print dress to style with up to any 7 pieces from the ModCloth website.
I thought I would style a outfit for a city day out, since I live very near London. This is a outfit that's comfortable but fashionable and perfect for a shopping or sightseeing city trip.
Firstly, I chose this top which I would tie a knot in the front to make the dress a skirt to make it more casual and in a simple grey colour to not distract from the vibrant colours in the dress/skirt. Then I picked out these flip-flop sandals which are comfy for walking but still lovely with the rose gold details, and then I added a huge brown bag to carry all the city life essentials . For the finishing touches, I chose this cat ring because lets be honest it is the prettiest cutest ring in the world and I couldn't not have it. It adds a bit of bling to the outfit :) Finally a pair of simple black sunnies because I'm a weather optimist and they complete the outfit for a sunny day.

The pieces I mentioned are linked here: Dress, Top, Bag, Shoes, Ring, Sunglasses

I may have missed something but i never really knew about ModCloth before they approached me but I'm so glad they did as I love some of their pieces and will definitely been buying a few bits in future ^_^.

Hope you had a good week

The Notebook Edition

( the portraits eyes look a bit demented. Art is not my strong point but I try ^_^ )
This is my notebook. Well more of a scrapbook really. I've always called it my notebook though. But it is not a diary, make note. Here I stick, write, draw absolutely anything. Collages, wishlists, drawings, photos, short stories, poems, magazine cuttings, just things I think are pretty or like. I sometimes do things in it everyday or once in 3 months. There is stuff from 3 years ago when I got it and some from yesterday. I just do as I please and look back at it to see all the pretty things I found or made. It is one of my favourite things and so I thought I would some of my favourite (and not too personal) pages with you. The book itself is from Paperchase.
Do you have a scrapbook/notebook?
Hope you had a good week
