A splash of colour

The winner of harriet's give away was polly, enjoy the tattoos lovely.
Dressing for the summer is the best, the skirt that I am wearing in the photos above is a little purchase I made in a local charity shop the other day, for 99p you can't really complain. This is the first size 12 item I have fitted in, in almost two years, so you can imagine how happy i was when this beautiful skirt fitted. The colour is so vibrant and really eye catching. Mum was designated photographer for the day and she loved it, she had a bit of accident earlier in the day and sliced her foot open whilst doing a spot of gardening, she is a little squeamish so I took the helm and patched her up believe me when i tell you there was alot of blood. So for her helping her she helped me with photos, she is such a lovely lady. Then we had out dinner sat in the sunshine, which is always lovely, I find being british you have to grab all the sunshine when you can. Its just under a month till my birthday, what to do?! Gosh I will be 24 in under a month the thought slightly terrifies me and at the same time excites me as to what wonderful things i will be getting up to being 24. I have my list still to accomplish but there are a few things that will roll over to my 25 things before 25 list, so i am currently thinking about what the future has in store for me. Do you have a life list of things you want to accomplish?

  6. Your blog is beautiful, as are you, inside as well as out. The patterns and colours on that skirt are awesome and it really suits and looks brill on you. It made me smile that you are happy with the sizing, I want to say well done as it is most definitely something to feel proud of, but at the end of the day, you being happy with how and who you are should be enough, and it seemingly is, but I am happy for you all the same. I turn 24 soonish too, and your positive thoughts of excitement really have made me think a lil differently about it, so thank you, and thank you for sharing such a lovely blog.x

  11. What a great charity shop find - you look absolutely lovely. I'm smiling a little at all the people who have commented who feel old by 24. I'm 28 and certainly don't feel old (most of the time). I think you have it right to be excited by the opportunities that will come your way. I must say I failed at the 28 by 28 list so am working on a big 3 by 30 (although of course life doesn't end after that). Enjoy your holidays!
