bleurghh . . .

Oh dear I am ill again :( im feeling rather poop and frustrated because its been super sunny and summery and I have absolutely no get up and go whatsoever. Last week I was totally on it, organized motivated and getting stuff done and this week, boom! sickness, not impressed. And to top it I have a lot of custom orders to get on with. Typical ay!

Anyway this was an outfit from last week. Whatdyathink? I have a little side project in the pipeline. I have also reduced tons of items in my etsy shop so take a peek! im pretty generous when im ill so take advantage lol :)

Right I am off to eat ice cream and watch trashy T.V, goodnight! x

. . . . .

Whah! where does the time go! I have had a crazy couple of weeks and I turned 27 . . . yep thats right, 27 on the 6th March. I can not believe I am this old! Anyway I have neglected the blog for too long. Heres a brief catch up, I have gotten a few more hours work at the pub so I am trying to adjust to working late and getting home at 5am on the weekends then waking up early and doing my sewing job  during the week . . . . Its kinda tough but I have made myself a timetable to organize my life. With naps included and everything. I feel like im back at school. But so far so good, im being super productive and I like it!

Its only my first week testing my timetable out and it will need a little tweaking but so far I have managed to spend less time online (im sure we all get sucked in and distracted on the internet) I need to cut my browsing down and be more productive when im online. Im limiting internet work to the evenings. So the past few days I have gotten some sewing projects done. I have made 2 dresses, cut out a 3rd, drafted a pattern for and made up a playsuit. Sewn up a custom order, photographed a batch of items and even spent a morning charity shopping. . . . thats quite a lot.

Oh and did I mention I have been doing yoga every morning! just call me superwoman! 

Heres some of the goodies I bagged on my shopping spree.

Oh and last but not least I had a super sweet birthday eve with some wonderful friends. Yummy food at a local noodle bar then lots of chit chat and cups of herbal tea at a swanky cafe/bar afterwards. I wish I would have taken a camera out . . . . I really need to photograph more. Here's a snap of the lovely handmade and thoughtful gifts I received.

My friends are the cutest!

The sun is shining . . .

I can feel summer is just around the corner and I am excited! I went for a mooch around some charity shops today and picked up a few random bits . . . you've got to love a good rummage. Car boot season will soon be here too, yay! I just need to wake myself up early enough to go.

Anyway I picked up these two tops last week and I finally bought some vinyl to use as a backdrop for photographing, so I had a bit of a play. I am super happy with the background I think it looks so much more professional dont ya think?. I hate being in photos though, I feel really vain taking pictures of myself. Im not vain I promise, although I did photoshop my face, if you ever see me in real life beware lol. And the point of todays post is? I love vinyl, yeah!
