And we're back!

Hello my lovelies,

Firstly, apologies for the longer than expected hiatus. Unfortunately aside from being unwell, our laptop decided that it was going to short out the power every time it was plugged into the mains and blogger just doesn't work properly on my phone! (Which is off seeing how its a google phone...) So thank you for sticking with me

Anyway, I'm back now and will be updating three times a week once again and there may even be a give away in the near future <3 p="">
Ta-ta for now

We've adopted a puppy!

Hello my lovelies!

So my little hiatus wasn't for nothing! For awhile now my Husband and I have been thinking about adopting a pet. We'd run though every animal possible and eventually settled on a dog as the right pet for us. We set about searching through every local rescue to find the right dog for us and eventually after a week or two came across Harry.

~*~ Craft tutorial ~*~ Shoes to sandals

Hello my lovelies!

Today's tutorial is how to turn a pair of shoes into sandals!

These are a pair of An*Tai*Na shoes that I've had for awhile. They are pretty trashed on the toes from an over abrasive cleaner so in their current state they weren't fit for much else other than the bin. I decided to try and save them by turning them into sandals as the soles still have plenty of wear left in them.

Thank you card!

~*~ Clothing Review ~*~* My first brand dress!

Hello my lovelies!

I've finally bought my first brand dress!

Now originally I was never going to by one as they are expensive and to stand any change of them fitting, I'd have to alter it (I am a giant at 5"8 for brand dresses!), but I found one on eBay for £45. That's right, £45!! For that much I didn't mind taking the risk of altering it.

~*~ Shopping Review ~*~ Clobba Online & Taobao: Part 2

Hello my lovelies!

So here as promised is part 2 of my review.

This is what I ordered:
(I did also order a mug but it wasn't in stock, Martin refunded me the money for it!) The boxes are obviously for my lunch to take to work and the flask is for hot and cold drinks, (I'm planning on using it when I travel to Frock On!)

My package arrived on Friday, roughly 10 days after posting by registered airmail. I'd say that's pretty quick time to make it through two sets of customs and half way round the world!

The box itself was wrapped with bubble wrap, polka-dot plastic and a layer of parcel tape, there was no way anything was going to damage this! (I do really love that polka-dot wrapper!) Inside everything was packed neatly in individual bags, I may have forgotten to take pictures of this as I was too excited! (Frankly it's lucky I remembered to take one before ripping it open!)

So the first of my items is the skirt from strawberry witch, I cannot express how much I adore this skirt, it absolutely fits perfectly. The fabric is soft yet thick and silky to the touch on the outside. The print is very vibrant and the mint colour is exactly what I was expecting - it also has a very cute leaf pattern running though the weave of the fabric. The stitching and hemming is neat and very tidy. There are no loose threads. The only thing I would say is I needed to change the ribbon running through the corseting at the back as it wasn't quite long enough - not a problem though as I can use that for something else, but I thought worth mentioning in case anyone else orders one.

The second item is the JSK from +Secret Doll+. I like this JSK, perhaps not as much as the skirt, it's well made and the lace overlay is very soft, but it's unfinished at the edges. The print is very clear and the material is very light. The waist bow isn't detachable so I may look at making it so myself at some point. The rest of the JSK is very well made, the stitching neat and tidy with a beautiful lace trim. Again this item was custom made in my size and it fits perfectly! My only niggle is that it's a little long with out a petti but with it should be fine! It's very cute and I do see myself getting a lot of wear out of it. Bonus: It's hand washable!

Lace detail

Rilakkuma lunch boxes are the third items, and oh my gosh are they adorable!! I honestly can't wait to use these! There're exactly what I was expecting and will hold my watermelon fine! They seem to have very tight fitting seal lids.

The last item is a Rilakkuma flask. The packaging for the box is so cute! I am trying to think of a way to reuse it instead of throwing it out. The actual flask is a lot smaller than I was expecting, but in retrospect it's actually perfect as it'll hold a cup of coffee and fit in my handbag! I have a feeling I'll be making a lot of use of this over the winter months, but I have a feeling it's first trip out may be to Frock On!

So I'm totally ecstatic with my purchases. Clobba Online have been wonderful as usual. I'm actually so happy with my skirt, I will be contacting Clobba again very shortly to see if I can order some of the stores other items in a custom size! I think that really speaks for itself having only had the skirt for 24 hours and already wanting more for the store.

Ta-ta for now!

Absent no more!

Hello all!

Appologies for the lack of updates recently. (Alright, so its been a year, whoops!) It's been one heck of a year, I've moved, changed jobs and married! So I think a teeny tiny absence could be excused? :)

Of course all this time has given me plenty of ideas to write about, including new posts under the tag The Budget Bride - these will be super handy for all new brides-to-be and will look at ways of saving money during one of the most expensive days of your life.
