Things that made me smile this week! (Things I love #5)

Finding it tricky to put up on the same day each week! 
Anyhoo, here's some things that have made me smile this week..

Love this pic, the contrast between the perfect ballerina and the slippers strung everywhere is great!

Gorgeous peacock locket,  supposedly peacock feathers are unlucky but I have always loved the colours in them.  My nan used to keep some in a vase in her lounge so I have admired them from a young age!

The pastel furniture and pin-up girl in this 50's style diner. 
 I'm not so keen on the white lights and cars though!

Was really pleased that my clever mum made me this beautiful cupcakes skirt for work. 
 I got lots of compliments!  Hope to make some more skirts soon...

Loved making some moustache mugs for a friend's birthday recently. 
Really easy to make and good for a giggle!
I originally got the idea for Christmas pressies last year from

Really like flying birds tattoos lately, small but really cute!

Have listened to Daughter this week.  I heard 'Smother' last week on the radio and furiously hunted down the song!
Not the most upbeat music, but really soothing if you are feeling down and beautiful vocals. You can find them on Spotify.

Hope you like my choices this week :)

Smiling Monday! ( Better late than never?) Things I love #4

Some bits and bobs that have floated my boat this week..

Cutesy 'ice-cream' balloons, these are v. girly but I like them.

Have been listening to a lot of 'Flight of The Conchords' this week, probably look peculiar to anyone driving by as I giggle to some of their classics! This artwork is lovely and has a retro feel that I really like.

As anyone who knows me will tell you, I love stars! These shoes are no exception, I could bust a few moves in these.... Haha!

How cosy is this lantern? I love the sketch drawing that has been cut out to create a lovely shade :)

Loving this library, could spend a lot of time daydreaming in here...

Mason jars painted with glow-in-the-dark paint apparently.  I hope this actually works, they are amazing :)

Smiling Sunday!! (Things I love #3)

It's been a busy week...
First up, I love illustrated lyrics and think that this Mumford and Sons sketch is really cute.  The more observant amongst you will notice that his guitar doesn't appear to have any strings! Despite that, I really like it!  The lyrics are from the song 'White Blank Page' from their brilliant album 'Sigh No More'.  I listen to that album a lot and think they are incredibly talented musicians. I've been lucky enough to see them perform live twice and they definitely didn't disappoint.  Looking forward to their new album, out on 25th September.      

I love this 'Dance like nobody's watching' vid in a Laundromat.  Like the way the random ladies just carry on with their washing!

Really fancy trying out some map candles like this one- lovely idea!

I firmly believe this, you can't live with any regrets. 
Really like this simple idea- Fairy lights poking through a plain canvas- soooo pretty!  Would be lovely in a bedroom or lounge.

How cool is this beautiful driftwood sculpture? :)

Yum yum! Ice-cream sprinkles stored in spice jars- wish these were in my cupboard!

Smiling Sunday!! (Things I love #2)

Okay, so things I'm loving this week....

Beautiful unicorns and rainbows, I wish I had the patience to ice cookies like these...

This is such a fun way to write out a recipe, I am a big chai-lover so will be making this ready for the autumn chilly nights!

Amazing mehndi tattoo, so pretty :)

Cute goldfish wallpaper designed by my friend Jen Moules, clever girl :).

Prince Harry without a stitch! The 'Saltburn Yarnbomber' has left another cute knit for people to admire. Haha! Via
Amy Winehouse- I'm still obsessed with her voice.  Love this photo of her, really shows off her style. 'Back to Black' is such an iconic album of our time and I think it's such a shame we won't have any more music from her.  There were always rumours of her doing a Bond theme, which would have been amazing.  'Love is a losing game' is that kind of epic song, which makes me think she would have been well suited to the job. 

Really like the craziness of this fabric by Ikea, makes me think of Heidi in the mountains! 
Hope to pick some up soon.
