In Bloom










The trees are finally flowering! Hooray!

And yes...that is a new black plastiflex clutch! Because having one black plastiflex clutch is just not enough, *ahem*, of course one must collect as many as possible right? This one is smaller than my usual one, so obviously, I had to have it. I love plastiflex, but you all knew that all ready didn't you? I want a red one now...

This dress is a new-to-me vintage number, but I'm not sure how long it will remain in my closet. Though I love the print and the fit is almost perfect, the armholes are a little tight, and the acetate fabric is not the most comfortable to wear. I really do love the black and white print so I will be on the lookout for similar patterns in cotton for future summer sewing projects. That's right sewing projects, because I simply must get sewing again. And I will be able to because...

I FINISHED THE DRAFT OF MY BOOK! (!!!!!) Now, you all may have heard me mention my long suffering fiction project that I have been working on off-and-on for six years now--and this book that I just finished last week is actually not that book, but is a completely new story I only started writing back in February! Yes, I wrote a 145,000 (yep, way too long oops) word book over the last few months. Of course I have accomplished nothing else, but also, I wrote a darn book! It's still feels a bit crazy that it is done, and of course there is a high chance no one else will read it/like it/publish it, but it still feels pretty awesome to have finished a whole draft of a fiction book. I'd love to be a published author someday and this certainly feels like being one step closer :) Luckily I love editing so now the fun continues as I work through re-reading and editing the whole draft over and over again!

I hope you all get to read it someday, if I ever have any updates on that front you will be the first to know ;)

  1. CONGRATS ON FINISHING THE BOOK!

    Also, that dress is beautiful - but if it's not right, set it free to find its perfect home, and treat yourself to something else.

  2. Beautiful photos, both you and those blooming trees look wonderful! Congratulations on completing the book, what a fantastic achievement. They say that you cut out about 30% on the first edit, so that should bring the word count down a bit. I look forward to seeing the end product! xx

  3. Congratulations on finishing the book!! You've achieved something huge! As for the outfits you look gorgeous but i totally understand when items just don't feel quite right. Can I say I love your hair. I liked the purple and have had my own hair every colour under the sun but I seem to be drawn to more natural colours these days. X
