Get the Look: 2 Outfit Ideas for the New Season

FASHION // Two Outfits for Spring/Autumn. All items available to shop.

Here’s both an outfit idea and shopping post in one today. Most of the shops I shop from are US based and I still find it strange shopping new season Fall fashions at Spring time – but they usually seem to work pretty well. I approached these as going out to dinner sort of looks. I know I did red and black a couple of weeks back but it really is a favourite!

Look 2:

Top MANGO // Skirt ASOS // Necklace ASOS // Bag ASOS // Shoes ASOS // Earrings BAUBLEBAR

* Not sure how the Mango links are working as the shop seems to be down for me today – the two items are called Slim-Fit Cotton Trousers and Floral Print Blouse if you needed to search for them.

I’ve been spending quite a bit of time in the garden lately (as I’m sure you can tell from all these pics here and from earlier this week too!). I’ve definitely been enjoying the warmer weather lately and loving seeing so much colour about again. Hope you have a great weekend!

Spring To-Do List

Spring-Daisies SImple Floral ArrangmentFloating spring daisies after this week’s  iPhone wallpaper shoot.

Even though it’s a few weeks into spring already, I thought I put together a list of somethings I really wanted to make sure I did during the season. I find it’s so easy for the seasons to slip by me without feeling like I really get to appreciate and celebrate what they have to offer.

  • Learn to make paper flowers (I really want to do this online course).
  • Make my first ever spring garland from something bright and colourful (perhaps from my paper flowers).
  • Fresh asparagus from the garden with homemade hollandaise.
  • Decorate a pumpkin for Halloween.
  • Create a little fern garden for my desk (inspired by this book here).
  • Make or buy a pair of simple, bright apple-green earrings.
  • Buy peony roses from the local market.
  • Find a pretty, light, floral cardigan.
  • Start making some things from my Frozen Sweets pinterest board. Also look for ideas to add to my Spring board.
  • Organise my photos from the past year and print out a few to put into albums.

What do you have planned for this Spring (or Autumn if your in Northern Hemisphere)?


Daisy and Polka Dot iPhone Desktop




The daisies are so pretty in our garden at the moment and with the starting of spring, I thought I’d create a new phone desktop for myself to celebrate. I know a lot of you are heading into Autumn now but I thought you might like to be brought a bit of spring cheer anyway.

I saved the file in 4 sizes – for iPhone 4, 5, and both 6s but they would be easy to resize for any other phone.

To install onto iPhone: Open this page on your phone and click on the size you ‘d like. Hold down on the image and click ‘Save Image’. Open your photo library, click on the share option and select use image as wallpaper – then set as lock screen. Another way to do this is to  save the image to your computer then email it to yourself or use something like dropbox to get it onto your phone too.



Hope you like this one. Have you been enjoying the new change of season so far?

Moving Site Issues

Hi all – I’ve managed to move my site across but I’ve just noticed that a few of the permalinks have changed which means several of my internal and external links have broken. So sorry if your having trouble trying to find a particular post. There should only be a few to change but I’m doing it manually so it might take me a bit of time. The search function on this site works really well so I’d recommend trying that if you’re really trying to find something.

If anyone knows of an easier way of doing this let me know.

Until soon,



Ok I think they are all fixed now. I’ll double check a few again tomorrow but if you notice anything not working properly just let me know via the comments or my contact page.

PS: My Food and Beauty galleries are all done if you want to take a look. The DIY one is hopefully coming in the next few days :)


My DIY Gallery is done too now so make sure you check it out. I double checked all the problem links again today and they all worked fine. I’m still working on a few things but the majority is done now so take a good look around. I’ll see you soon :)
