victory roll.

Whenever I have the time and energy to do a victory roll or two in my hair, I always remind myself to do them more often...but I usually don't have the time or energy! Even if I'm not wearing anything vintage, an ol' victory roll makes me feel majorly old school and classy.

archie turns two.

 Last weekend myself and Nancy headed to little Archie's second birthday celebrations. Leona, one of the Le Chat Noir girls, had a teepee party in the sun with a beautiful cake from Swell Bakeshop (every good party needs a Swell cake!)
The best part of the afternoon was trying to get three little people to pose for a photo. We weren't successful but had fun trying!

 Happy birthday Archie!

life lately (and the all important list).

 It's mid-July, holy moly! The summer seems to be flying by but sometimes it takes a quick flick through my camera phone to see how much we seem to be squishing into the weeks and months. I've been keeping a close eye on my list of goals before my next birthday a lot lately and to be honest, I can only cross off about 7 of these goals so far. With just four months to go before I turn 30, I better get cracking.

little adventures.

 We're ignoring the crappy weather and continuing to take trips to the beach, playing in the garden and having the odd ice cream.

A lot of 70's happening in the store at the moment. I've already moved onto listing autumn/winter items which is always bittersweet. Saying goodbye to beach days but gearing up for cosy layers and chunky knitwear!

10/10 diy - seashell jewellery holders.

 Here's another 10/10 diy that I tried this week. A 10 minute DIY project that costs under €10. I wanted to display more of my jewellery in my bedroom as I tend to only wear what I have on display and forget about all the pieces that I've stored away in jewellery boxes. Using seashells I collected from the beach last week, here's a quick and easy DIY to display your jewellery.

1. Gather your supplies. Seashells (big enough to hold jewellery), paintbrushes, paint (oil based) or coloured ink.
2. Wash the shells first to remove sand or dirt. Paint the inside of each shell (one coat is enough) and set down to dry. 
3. Experiment with different shades. I stuck with metallics for this project. 4. Wash brushes with white spirits and water.

That's it! It should take you just about ten minutes and the supplies are definitely all under €10. Win win!

little adventures.

Being away from Nancy was really hard last weekend. We chose to go to France without her so that we could relax a little bit more and have some much needed couple-y time together. As enjoyable as it was, three nights away from Little Nancy is just about all I can handle! 
The past few days we've done some catching up with trips to the park, a picnic and lots of hide and seek in the house.
