And Cate's dress!!!! Could it be any more beautiful!
it's just a short one today, but well done to the happy couple!!
|So this little wooden box (bought it for 50p in the summer from a 'shack' in Portugal!) did obviously start off without a coat of red paint on its lid, but I forgot to take a photo before I started. Anyway, I use this box to store my earrings in, and I felt it needed a slick of paint!|
|This was the finished product! I chose the colours that go with my room, although saying that the white should really be beige, but never mind. (...the opposite side to the white was also white)|
|Took ages! A steady hand isn't unfortunately a trait of mine...|
|Sorry if you're one of those toe-phobic people, just look away now! I've never really tried 'nail art' because as I said I really don't have a steady hand OR enough patience, but for some reason I gave it go. I know it's nothing hard or complicated, just lining the edge of the nail in a different polish, but for a first attempt I'm quite proud.|
|The nail polishes I used: Gigababe and Everything's Rosy. I really like Orly polishes because they apply nicely, even if they are a little pricey.|
|I actually made this wall hanging in January but never got around to blogging about it. A family friend went to New York on holiday, and as my souvenir he kept and gave me all the iconic NYC shopping bags. I thought this was great, but what do I do with them? This was my answer, if maybe not very imaginative. (Unfortunately some of the collage pieces have slipped down, but after I realised I really couldn't be bothered to take another photo, ha ha).|
|Last but not least, here is a photo I took a couple days ago of the beautiful beach I live on, and the beautiful weather. Ahhh!|

|The one and only...|
|It was such a nice lunch, the floral and dotted china tea set is just the bomb. Apparently this photo may be used as a sort of advertising poster for Cooper's coffee cafe for people to receive the same afternoon treat- so Jersey beans keep your eyes peeled...|
|We slyly quizzed Hannah about a week before her birthday over what her favourite cake was, and this^ was our answer. It was THE BEST carrot cake you will ever find! The cream cheese topping had orange zest in, it made it so good.|
|Chilling in Hannah's beautiful garden whilst getting to grips with the self timer on Rosie's camera...|
|The first part of Hannah's presents included: A 'Kirstie Allsopp sewing box that we knew she had her eye on, a pretty French floral vintage tin we discovered at the vintage fair, and a beautiful 'Kate Middleton' style ring from the vintage fair that we knew Hannah also had here eye on (even though it's too big, ha ha).|
|The other bit of Hannah's presents: a framed vintage poster, because Hannah is redoing her bathroom by decorating it with framed pictures, so we thought it was quite appropriate! ..and yes, you saw correctly, it is indeed a signed Usain Bolt photo for the Bolt herself.|
|Rosie's AMAZING *hint sarcasm* homemade wrapping paper, trying to show everything that makes Hannah, well, Hannah. It's not the full thing, but you get the idea.|

|I'm not wearing any makeup, so PLEASE don't zoom.|
