i don’t know if it’s something to do with getting older, or something else entirely, but i find myself drawn to black more and more. i love colour and always will, and it will forever take up the majority of my wardrobe and home, but there’s a special something that black brings that no other colour quite can.
in terms of clothing, black is a colour that is easily dressed up, but can also be stunning on it’s own. home decor wise, it can look quite imposing if a large amount is used in a small area, but at the same time it brings a feeling of stillness and calm.
also if i could be wearing that dress and those sandles with the bag right now, that’d be perfect. i’d have to bring in some colour somwhere though, how could i possibly resist…
orange is definitely a colour that’s grown on me over the years. not that i didn’t like it as such, but i just didn’t like it quite as much as other colours. to be honest, it’s still not a colour i’d really wear in anything other than accessories, but i am open to change on that.
however, i do love a bit of orange in home decor! not on a wall painting scale, but in things like cups and blankets it’s really quite lovely. i prefer to stick to the more yellowy/red oranges rather than ones bordering on brown.
it’s only just dawned on my it’s halfway through march. where did that time even go? i feel like i’ve wasted so much of it feeling down, when i really wanted to ..well, not do that. but i am slowly becoming more productive again, feeling a bit more motivated and having ideas.
i’m starting to feel like myself again. still, i have (seemingly constant) worries about money – or lack thereof. but other than that, i do feel like a weight is slowly being lifted. spring is on it’s way and i want to embrace it.
love this brooch of a pair of lips i found recently. it’s quickly become a favourite. i doubt anyone will actually be interested, but i thought i’d show you some of my favourite brooches here on the blog soon. i do love me some brooches.
i had some high street vouchers i’d won recently, so i bought these lovely little ramekins from john lewis. they’ve got a (what i’m assuming is) new range out called ‘house’ and it seems very marimekko-esque ..think graphic, yet simple with a contemporary feel. which of course i love. i wanted to buy more (like this heart plate and these plates), but this was all i could get.
*not sponsored, i just really like these items!
i also got these super cute shoes. i must admit, i’d never normally buy shoes from primark ..but these are so cute. also i’m wearing elephant socks because i am a child. i wish i knew where they were from, but they were a present last year.
and this rather lovely little mirror from tiger. as soon as i saw it i thought of the lovely kailey of mermaidens, which made me smile. the fabric underneath is from a tote bag i also made this week. want to know how to make it? head this way » how to make a simple tote bag
also..did you see my new header? oh! and don’t forget to enter my giveaway! ends today.

silver seems to be one of those colours that divide people, along with gold. i think that, along with every other colour, you can wear a colour you don’t feel suits you. you just have to think about the details, rather than a bigger item. read this post
