Learning something new. My sister taught herself to crotchet before Christmas and has made some totally gorgeous things. I laughed at her lots of being a nana with her ball of wool on her lap all the time and now I need to eat my words. It is pretty addictive and my mind is full of pictures of giant crotchet blankets and thick wool scarves. I haven’t felt like sewing in a while (I think the whole making my own wedding dress thing has fulfilled my sewing quota for a bit) and this is a nice change.
Catching up. I have been loving some time with my friends. One of my really good friends came to stay last week and I spent yesterday afternoon putting the world to rights with the girls from my old job, who are fab and I miss like crazy. Work takes up so much time and weekends are that precious chance to catch up with the people you can’t see every day. It is good for the soul to spend time with great people.
Heeled boots. All day every day. I’ve found my sweet spot with heel height finally (1 1/2 inches just so ya’ know) and can finally manage a day in them. So of course, they are all I’m wearing. Something about a little bit of heel makes everything look so much more flattering!
About some downtime. I am feeling pretty tired at the moment (I think it is just that time of the year) and a few days of dong absolutely nothing, without having to tidy up or go shopping or run errands, sound like utter bliss right now. It isn’t going to happen, but it is nice to daydream. For now, I’ll just enjoy some quiet evenings on the sofa and maybe a few good long baths when I can!
Links of the Week:
Love some of these designers. Always fun seeing what people are doing to make ethical fashion an actual *thing*
Laura from Lola & Behold has been asking a lot of twitter questions recently and she has written this post about blogging from the results. SO interesting and a great read for any bloggers or brands working with bloggers.
It is almost Valentine’s Day. Love it or hate it, there are always some great features around. I love these DIY Rap Lyric cards and I am downloading all of these tech backgrounds because they are ridiculously cute.
Thought this was a really interesting article. Lots of people find my ethical fashion pledge… well, a bit weird. And that’s interesting considering how much more accepting we are of things like Veganism and buying only Cruelty Free make up. Why do people not like it when you buy ethical fashion?
Annnnnd just Matthew Lewis being a babe because every Sunday can do with a little bit of Matthew Lewis eye candy…
