Feeling hot?


It's boiling out there, maybe it's because England hasn't enjoyed this sort of heat for a while (far too long if you ask me) but it feels like a heatwave in the midday sun :)

Nice weather can make people forget their worries and problems. Make people embrace life and go out and enjoy! It's so uplifting. Summer is definitely my favorite season, bronzed bodies, smiley faces and long afternoons outside. It's lovely!

The thought of whipping out the bikinis and throwing on the short shorts used to terrify me. However I feel so much more confident after loosing some weight since last summer. I'm very excited to get a tan and enjoy what summer has to bring.

Feast your eyes on these beauties....

Beach Dress - Asos £30

Cut Out Swimsuit - Asos £45

Panel Swimsuit - Asos £120
I'm loving swimsuits this year, there are some gorgeous pieces, great if your tummy conscious. I especially like this panel swimsuit (above) not liking the price however....that's a little ridiculous. I'm contemplating creating my own cut out panel swimsuit at a fraction of the price (A 'how to' post to come if I do)

70's Sunglasses - Asos £12

 Ray-Ban Aviator Sunglasses - Asos £120


Accessorize for the weather. Personally a big fan of aviator style sunglasses, on men and women. I'd love some proper Ray-Ban ones, but don't trust myself not to break/loose them :/

Now I'm off to carry on sunning myself with a good book and a nice chilled drink....ENJOY THE SUN EVERYONE!

I want a monkey called Crystal!

Now for some laughter!

Crystal on set
I love this little lady!

The red carpet wave...and smile

Don't you agree she's one of the cutest monkey you've ever seen. She made me smile even more when photos of the Hangover Part 2 were published and she was shown wearing this gorgeous pink number and striking her best poses!
I think she's brilliant. I haven't seen the film yet but I've heard it's worth watching. I mean, come on! I've gotta go see it for Crystal alone! 

Doing her 'hungover' impression
I'm making a dress in fabric that looks a lot similar to this...I like your style little monkey :)


Who Knew

You took my hand
You showed me how
You promised me
You'd be around

I took your words
And I believed
In everything
You said to me

If someone said three years from now
You'd be long gone
I'd stand up and punch them out
Cause they're all wrong
I know better
'Cause you said forever
And ever
Who knew

Remember when
We were such fools
And so convinced
And just too cool

I wish I could touch you again
I wish I could still call you a friend
I'd give anything
When someone said count your blessings now
'fore they're long gone
I guess I just didn't know how
I was all wrong
They knew better
Still you said forever
And ever
Who knew

I'll keep you locked in my head
Until we meet again
And I won't forget you my friend
What happened

If someone said three years from now
You'd be long gone
I'd stand up and punch them out
Cause they're all wrong and
That last kiss
I'll cherish
Until we meet again

And time makes
It harder
I wish I could remember

But I keep
Your memory
You visit me in my sleep

My darling
Who knew
(Who Knew-Pink)
Have you ever wanted to say something to someone but didn't know how. 
You just don't quite know how to make them understand just how much they mean to you, how they made your life complete, but you didn't realise until it was too late. 
Missing them so much it hurts.
Their the last one you think of at night and the first one you think of when you wake up.
All you have for company are the long distant memories, of how things used to be. Praying that you never loose those memories as they are all you have left.
Forever wishing you could turn back the clock and make things right, make things how they should be. 
Something in your heart is telling you to fight for what you believe in and never give up on a love that you once lost. 
Never give up hope.

All I want to say is

Flower Power

A quick little mini photoshoot I did when I had nothing better to do :)
