In the Garden

Friday was my last day at my old job, and I only start my new job next week Monday. I am so excited to have some time off this week to do the things I need to and love to do.

I have spent the morning in my garden, just tidying up and planting some new plants just in time for spring.

What a wonderful way to start my week off – I know it is not the last time I will be in my garden this week.

Fabulous Fifi

Stripes have long been a favourite of mine, so it is great to see them making a bold and colourful comeback this summer...although, to be honest, I am not sure if they ever went out.

Check out my previous post on this beautiful bunny.

Sew Inspired

I have the itch to stitch of late... I am going to fetch my sewing machine from my mom’s house this weekend – I just can’t wait to start sewing.

I have a great big chest filled with gorgeous fabric, which has always been my one of my main sources of inspiration.

I have a few decor projects that I would like to begin with, mainly curtains and blinds for my flat, but after my post on work wear, I want to sew up some spring skirts, and some cute summer shorts.

...Eeeek! Scalloped edges, pleated waistlines, buttons, ruffles and prints...

Dressing For Success

It’s been said that you should dress for the job you want, and since I am searching for the job I want, appropriate work wear has been on my mind a lot. The below looks are absolutely gorgeous, and ideal for the approaching spring weather.
