Interesting pins.

I’m pretty lazy when it comes to pinterest, as evidenced by my only having one follower (thank you whoever you are), but damn I love me a pinterest competition. I love the challenge (and excuse) of roaming around the net, seeking out beautiful things/images, often in colours you wouldn’t gravitate to naturally. This time it was yellow. Let me tell you, there ain’t nothin’ mellow about yellow. It is amazing. I sent the final board to my friend who told me about the competition and she said it made her want to wear yellow tomorrow.

The catch? That all the boards go into a draw – no skill involved. If dopey here had maybe read the instructions..

But you know what? If I hadn’t spent all those hours surfing around for ‘lemon’ or ‘sunshine’, how would I ever have known that yellow and I were meant TO BE. You heard it here first. Yellow and I are going steady this summer.

(Oh and if you have nothing better to do and want to see the whole board, just click on the pic).

Brooch The Subject.

I know they’ve been done a fair bit now, but I still love the idea of a vintage brooch bouquet – especially if it’s family heirloom treasures or special memories you’re carrying with you. Here are some instructions if you wanted to give it a go. My only advice: be über selective with your brooch choice!

S’more Dior.

It was my very good friend’s (important) birthday on Saturday, and as she shares my love of oh such pretty things we’ll most likely never own, I thought this was the perfect gift. It was Laura Palmer wrapped in plastic so I couldn’t take a squizz, but I reckon it looks pretty fine.
