I love these images, the popping colours, the heavy 60’s influences (especially the fringe - I’m pretty jealous of that fringe).

I didn’ t realise that I’d hit 99 posts so I've accidentally missed my 100th! So I thought I’d make a commemorative 101 post instead. It’s a much better number – it’s symmetrical.
I started this blog way back In 08 and made 1 post in the whole year!
In 2009 I didn’t do much better, I didn’t post until June and then I only posted four times.
2010 came but I still had bad blogging habits, I posted a little about what I was up to but it wasn’t until October this year that I started using Windows Live Writer. That’s when I started blogging properly, I’ve always hated using Blogger to post, you can’t copy and paste, its really difficult to lay out text and pictures are a nightmare! This meant that I had loads more freedom and now am happy to post several times a day about insignificant things!
I still only have 29 followers on Blogger + 20 on Bloglovin’ so hopefully throughout 2011 I will reach the 100 mark and keep climbing. Thank you to anyone who does follow me and keeps reading my posts, it makes me happy to think that some people do find what I say interesting, thanks for sticking with me
This year I will be taking part in Project ReStyle,
“Project Restyle is a just-for-fun creative group focused on ReStyling damaged, unwanted or unusable goods into fresh, beautiful pieces.”
I am super excited to get involved with this, I can’t wait to get home and raid my loft and cupboards for things to transform!
It’s real easy to get involved too, you just need to take a before and after pic and you can post it to flickr or on your own blog. If you’re one of the good ones that week you might get posted up on Elsie or Rachel’s blogs.
For Christmas My Aunt gave me a set of silicone cake cases, I’ve been thinking about buying some for ages but wasn’t sure. She also gave me a lovely cupcake & cookies cooking book from Lakeland so of course I had to try it out.
I baked Vanilla Kisses and White Chocolate and Orange Mini Cupcakes. In my book, they were both disasters, the Vanilla kisses promised to be beautiful and when I piped the biscuits onto the baking sheets they looked more than perfect, however I didn’t realise how far they would flatten out when baking, and they looked far from perfect. I also apparently cannot read, the cupcake recipe was for 48 cakes, and as I had 12 cases I did 1/4s only, I didn’t realise that the recipe was for mini cupcakes and got confused when the recipe barely stretched to 10.
Better luck next time Emily.
apparently it all tasted delicious and my cousin suggested that I go on Celebrity Masterchef, not just (Masterchef, but Celebrity!)
Ma soeur et moi baked some yummy Christmas cookies, (which tasted pretty good if I do say so myself).
I used a recipe from Miranda who was a runner up in the Great British Bake off a few months ago, I loved that show, I hope there is another series. Find it here and bake your own.
Here is a picture of my little kitten Freya, she’s adorable but has been a little annoying this Christmas. She knocked the Christmas tree over!! Silly kitten.
The new year is imminent and I for one am looking forward so much to the summer, to florals, to pastels, to an excuse to wear yellow and gorgeous floaty wispy magical nudes.
Today I bring you some from Alberta Ferretti
Beautifully vintage, silks and chiffon, I adore this collection, (even though it is strictly A/W) Ferretti here just makes me dream of hot summer nights…

If you follow my blog you’ll know that I adore Ellie. I just found that there is a video for one of my favourite songs of hers, The Writer. Its a really pretty video, makes me long for breezy summer days.
I don’t love this version the song though, it’s not as good as her acoustic:
I went out last night. I think it’s fair to say the night was…eventful. Although not for the reasons I’d anticipated.
Being the girly girl that I am, I ordered a new dress for the occasion, a lovely one from Motel
Isn’t it pretttttty! I wore it with my Jeffrey Campbell shoes
I really should start taking pictures of what I wear! If I see one I’m in then I’ll show you!
