Dress - Topshop (old stock)...please excuse the ladder in my tights!

Hello! Today I felt a lot better and went to Totnes in the hope of finding some cute things for my birthday and a few extra bits and bobs. Turns out there were a few places with things I'd really rather like, but I wasn't willing to spend that much money. So instead I came back to Torquay and just went to Wilkinsons, haha! I got all these fun things. I'm going to fill the big jug with homemade raspberry and lemonade which I'm going to make on Saturday!

Just a quick post as I'm busy baking and other nice things. I have two questions for you though:

a) where can I get those straws with those things you open out and they're like fruit and stuff? I don't know what they're called, but someone must know what I mean...

b) I saw a girl with a lush tshirt today - it had a drawing of a girl then a scroll thing saying "best of all" - anyone know where it's from?

Just another reminder about my birthday giveaway which is running all this week!

Tonight I'm going to pamper myself a bit I think... :)

  11. Your dress looks so cute! I think supermarkets sell those fruit paper things, maybs try morrisons they're pretty good for party/bake wear. I don't know why stocking good baking accessories would mean they will have paper straw fruit but my mind works mysteriously

  13. I feel like I shouldn't admit to this, but I love Wilkinsons. So much stuff, so cheap! It's blinkin' brilliant.

    I've got a big box of those straws in my cupboard and I'm pretty sure they came from either Poundland or Home Bargains. Hope that helps! x

  14. Auwwww I wanna come to your party girlie! :) I think I know what you mean about the straws... you almost get them in cocktail stick versions too? where a little thing made of paper folds out. Imagine you might get it in the kinda place that does umberellas for drinks too :) haha sorry I know that's not helping much :( Hope you find what youre looking for tho! xx

    If these are the straws you mean [ http://www.amazon.co.uk/Coco-Bo-Cocktail-Fruit-Straws/dp/B0032WE4YQ ] i can only seem to find them online - and i would've suggested wilko's if anywhere would have them! hope you find them somewhere :) x

  24. I love that dress! you are so cute!

    I have been following your blog for a while now, but not sure I have ever commented? I just wanted to let you know how inspiring I find you. You are so talented and creative, and I love the fact you have your own little business venture going on. Im just leaving uni and trying to do that myself, and am competely terrified!

    Also, I watched that video you posted about ME (and downloaded the song!) and have to say I didn't know much about the condition, but can in some ways relate. I was born with arthritis and some days its easy to control and ignore, other days I struggle to get out of bed, the pains so bad. I look fine, and young, so people rarely believe me when I tell them, and my doctor and uni was rude and dismissive when I went in for help, because I am too young to have it! So I can definitely sympathise.

    Sorry for the essay, I just wanted to let you know how inspiring I find you, and how much I love your blog :)
