“Day before” outfit….

I’d love a glam little outfit for the day before we get married, although I’m sure I’ll be in my jeans up a ladder making the venue look pretty but we shall see, anyway, this is the dress I would love to have, simple, sleek and a little bit glam….

£150 Miss Selfridge

Easy Living Digest

OK, so a guilty pleasure, Easy Living Magazine.

I don’t know why I feel guilty reading it, I guess because I feel it’s like I’m not quite in its demographic yet. It feels like its aimed at people with their lives together, families and careers. I guess I have a career but I still feel like just a kid reading a grown ups magazine. I aspire to have the lovely looking house, the glamourous dinner parties, the fabulous wardrobes, I feel like I am not quite grown up enough yet. I feel like a pretender!

Oh well, I love reading it, I always find a million things in there that I like, often I think “I could make that‘, infact ‘I could make that‘ is what I say whenever I go to any of those cute crafty shops, craft markets/shows exhibitions etc. I’ve been known to jot or sketch my ideas down in my  Moleskine notebook, sometimes I’ve even been known to buy the bots needed to start a project but more often than not it stops there, trapped in my craft cupboard or Moleskine notebook.

One of my aims for this year (I hate to call it a New Year Resolution) is to actually craft more, to go through the whole process. I don’t know what it is that stops me at the materials/notebook stage, I know I have the skills (I’ve made plenty of successful things in the past), I have the time and the means (I used to use my old job as a convenient excuse, but with my new job that excuse no longer exists), then it was settling into a new house (that’s done), my fiance being home (he works away a lot, in fact he’s away for 2 months at the minute, so I can’t use that excuse at the minute), so what I am getting at is that there is nothing stopping me from making all the lovely things I want to make. But before that I should probably get on with the aim of the post!

Umbrellas for a Rainy Day
