Higgledy Piggledy post

As the title says this is going to be a bit of a higgledy piggledy post. Have lots of little things to say so thought I would put them all in one post instead of dragging them out all week. I have 7 things to say (I think!)

1. I turned this rather unshapely vintage dress into...
This cute skirt! I shall post a proper tutorial on how to do it at a later date.
2. My wonderfully hubby, Jon is now a member of the blogging world too! Find his blog here! He is slowly becoming a semi professional photographer so thought it would be a good way to show case his work. At the mo he specialises in Live Music and Me (don't think I'm very profitable though, lol) Please go check out his stuff!
3. I recently did a swap with Krystal from Village. Her parcel turned up yesterday and I loved it all so would like to say thanks to her for everything she sent! Its awesome!!
I got:
Stunning Scarf, Earrings and Necklace from Pieces
A knitted tank from Zebra
Boyfriend Shirt from H&M
Bow Tank from Fishbone
Plus a cute vintage esqu postcard
4. I am part of the Oh, My Darling, Dear Darlings Penpal exchange and a few weeks ago I did a post on daisy inspired stationary from Etsy. One of the shops I featured was Exquisite Inks and the lovely owner offered to send me some of the cards I liked for free!! So I would like to thank the lovely Amanda for her kind gesture and show you all the amazing cards she made me. Look their personalised with my blog name too!!
So that said I have just sent these to my lovely new penpals. I also recieved all 3 of my first penpal letters. Aren't they all fun! So thank you girls!
5. I have finally finished my Day Zero list. It took me a few weeks to compile it all. Day Zero is a life challenge. You set yourself 101 tasks to complete in 1001 days. I have completed 1 challenge already by seeing a shooting star during the meteor shower last week. Ok so the picture doesn't show many shooting stars but if you can just see the little line going off the bottom of the shot on the left, that is infact a shooting star! lol. I saw 5 or 6 in total and I wished on them all, hehe.
The next challenge I am starting to tackle is the 20 new recommended books. So ladies recommend away, what is your favourite book that you think I should read?

6. As we are on the topic of books I have just joined a book exchange! Yeah, I love reading so much so this will be fun. If you want to join just click here and sign up with Bethan.

7. This ones not so much fun. I haven't been feeling like blogging and taking outfit shots the last few days as I had to have my wisdom tooth pulled on Friday! It needed a little filling but the dentist said there wasn't any point as it wasn't a tooth I used, so she just pulled it instead! So I been in kinda a bit of aching pain and feeling sorry for myself quite alot!

Anyway that's all.
Please don't forget to Twitter 'Grow, Poppy! Grow! #CoachPoppy #daisydayz25 www.coach.com/poppyproject' to help my poppies grow. And keep checking for special prizes hidden in the flowers.

  1. thank you so much for the mention! i'm so glad that you want to be part of the project :)

    so sorry to hear about your wisdom tooth, that is a pretty yuk thing to go through :( i hope you have some nice soft foods to cheer you up!


  2. Hmmm... book reccomendations... two of my favorites are The Bell Jar and The Little Prince (a super quick read) if you haven't read those!

  3. Can't wait for the tutorial that would open up so many options for me! I bet it's easy? You don't have to worry about the hem or the sides!

  4. wooo glad you like it :) going to check out your honeys blog now!

  5. Hi, Chantele! I'm sorry to hear about your wisdon tooth! I've never had a tooth taken out but my friends told me it sucks. You should indulge yourself with something good to make yourself feel better :).

    I don't have much time to write right now, since there's a deadline I have to meet, boo! But I'll be back later :).

    Super tight hug!

  6. oooh lovely skirt, look forward to seeing the tutorial, what a great idea!

    i always recommend norweigian wood by haruki murakami...its so fantastic & the film version is currently being made :)


  7. Wow, there's so much fun in this post! I love the skirt and look forward to the tutorial -- maybe it will inspire me to sew! Also, that's so awesome that you got some lovely free stationery -- loving the collection of letters that you've received, too!

  8. Ahh wow! The skirt turned out great! A tutorial would be great! I hope I can sew better one day.

    Love your letters. I need to finish writing mine.

    And I was doing the 101 things in 1001 days but my list has fallen to the wayside. As usual. I might need to update on it.

    Ohh a book exchange sounds great! I will have to check it out. x

  9. Love the skirt :-)
    Sorry to hear about your wisdom tooth pain. I had two of mine removed so I know what you're going through!

    Book recommendations: Digging to America by Anne Tyler, The Distance Between Us by Maggie O'Farrell and My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult are all favourites of mine.

  10. i wish that i could sew so that I could do a diy like that! x


  11. Your skirt is so cute, and so simple! Love those elastic waist band skirts.

    Your swap gifts are really lovely, it's so fun to get packages from other bloggers!

    Chic on the Cheap

  12. im in the dear darlings pen pals too! it is fun to write & receive pretty letters. i also really love how you say "proper" where i guess us boring Americans would probably just say "good" haha! (i have a slight obsession with all things British, especially the accents!)


Thanks for reading. please leave comments as they really make my day, and I try to visit every one of your blogs too!
