Get on your bike!

i'd like a bike. a nice pink girly bike that i can ride everywhere. I remember watching that episode of made in chelsea where millie and caggie are riding bikes through hyde park and i was just like i want that bike! It's the perfect mode of local transport, i mean just look at all those benefits.

fabulous fonts / 1

I love discovering new fonts, usually it's through other blogs which i have a feeling this one might be from but sometimes i just spend a bit of time on font sites and stumble across one i love. One of my favourite types are handwritten ones and this one is one i immediately fell in love with. Brain Flower is the name and it's free for personal use so i knew i had to grab it. And yes i am obsessed with Taylor Swift's new album at the moment so i had to use her lyrics here.

Books / Double Trouble

I like checking out the free books on iBooks all the time. This is one i just stumbled across whilst flicking through them. The series entitled 'The Coxwells' was initially published under the pseudonym Claire Cross but were republished under the author's actual name of Deborah Cross. It is a romance. A cute, funny, endearing romance though not a typical one. It is easy to read with some surprising twists which are not hinted at in the blurb. It's easy to fall in love with the main character Maralys who is much more then she seems. A good book which makes you stop and think and realise when reading about Maralys and Marcia that essentially a book should not be judged by its cover. (Moral lesson for the day) There are four books in the series, this is the second book and is free on iTunes and on Amazon. I purchased the first one after reading this but this one is probably my favourite.

the iPhone cases

You may be able to tell i have a little obsession with cases. I like to make my phone look pretty ok! All of these were for my white iPhone 4s which i bought a few months ago, which just shows how often i change my case. I recently upgraded to the iPhone 5 and don't have a case yet :( however i am on the hunt for the perfect one so i'll update soon!

First up is the Kate Spade case which is gorgeous but turned out to be a little too bulky for me thus i had to change it. This was actually my sisters who didn't like it for the same reason so it got handed down. The cassette case is from ebay a cute little retro case that i couldn't resist. The red one is another one of my sisters. This one is also from ebay which i used for about a week. Slim and simple. The next one is one i picked up on impulse whilst in the queue at h&m, it was super cheap and i've been told it is either a pair of wings or a moustache. I just thought it was cute. The last one is from ebay (best place to get super cheap cases!). I absolutely loved the game boy one, reminded me of when i was younger and it was all the rage. Unfortunately i used it so much it stretched out and then just got annoying so i had to move on.

I'm a dreamer and this is one of my favourite quotes from the film.

I wish i could find the person who made this as i believe in giving credit where credit is due. This person seems to have re-blogged it according to their tags.

Watched this!

Snow White and the Huntsman

I feel like I haven't watched a film in absolutely ages! It was Saturday evening and I'm the life of the party (sarcasm if it's not obvious) thus I decide to watch a film. I've got to say I'm a big romantic and I love all my romcom's so it's pretty much obvious when I point out over here that I also love my fairy tales  Snow White is not my favourite fairytale but it is one I like and I actually enjoyed this film's spin on it. It pretty much follows the basic storyline and I enjoyed it very much but I did wish the ending was a bit more wrapped for the couple (does that even make sense?) then it actually turned out to be.

1. Custom Makeup Brushes DIY Project - How cute is this! If i thought my brushes would turn out exactly like this i'd jump up and give it a go right away but alas i'm going to need a lot of time to get mine perfect. Alas i'm inspired and one day i will try my best.

2. DIY CMYK Lanterns - These look super cool and funky!

3. DIY Lilac Dip Dye Hair - Just sharing this for the coolness as i couldn't try it myself but it's too cool not to share.

4. Polka dot napkins - A lovely little way to bring some colour to an otherwise plain napkin and i love myself some polka dots.
