So many pretty things to share in one post! First off, I would like to talk about Paige Joanna's beautiful zine, Buttercup. Paige has been keeping me updated with all things Buttercup since the zines inception - and I modeled for her beautifully style 'Playing Dress-Up' spread - so seeing the final copy is rather exciting indeed. It's a delightfully nostalgic piece of light reading, complete with poems, stickers, a paper dress-up doll and a perfume DIY. As fate would have it, today is also Paige's birthday, so why not make her day even lovelier by heading over to her Etsy shop and picking up a copy; it's available in A4 and A5, and is the perfect Sunday evening treat to yourself.
Secondly, I would like to talk about my perfectly girlie lavender ensemble. For years as a child lavender was my favourite colour; I wore lavender jumpers and painted my bedroom walls lavender, and even attempted to grow lavender in a scrubby, overgrown strip of flowerbed just outside of my wendy house. That love was forgotten throughout my teenage years, as I went through awkward surfwear/grunge/emo/scene phases, however now that I'm older I'm falling for it again. It's the grown up pastel shade, and it's rather lovely to wear.
My 'Briar Rose Tinted Glasses' - yes, that's what they're called! - are from Jewellery By Jaymie, and have appeased my infatuation with the embellished glasses trend. Jaymie makes and sells all manner of wonderful embellished sunnies, in all different shapes and colours, so if you've been intrigued by this awfully pretty turn in eye-wear aesthetics, be sure to check her out!
P.S. A big round of a applause for my big, fluffy, half-badger of a kitty, Bailey. He was on top form for the opening photo of this post, and purred all the way through!
