spring fever

modcloth wishlist
So sorry for the lack of posts lately! I have been very busy with homework, an intriguing novel I just can't put down and my first ballet lesson! As for the homework, we are analysing every single chapter in a novel we are reading in class. It's very time consuming but hopefully it will all pay off when I ace the exam in a few weeks. The book I'm reading at home (for my own personal enjoyment) is an old favorite I hadn't read in a while. Holly's Heart by Beverly Lewis. I honestly cannot put it down, the author has an amazing writing style and a knack for creating interesting plot lines. Izzy Rose did an amazing book review about Holly's Heart on Baja Greenawalt's book blog. Check it out here.
Anyway, I started my first ballet class on Monday! Apart from being very sore after all the intense stretching, it was a lot of fun and I can't wait to do it again. I hope to get a lovely leotard, skirt and slipper on the weekend. Do you think they have floral?

I'm oh-so excited about Spring! It's so close now, only 21 days to go! I have been updating my wardrobe bit by bit. As I mentioned in my last post I've collected a few lovely pieces that will be perfect for the beautiful Spring weather. And as for the lovely people overseas who are just entering Autumn, I hope you enjoy it! Some lovely Winter clothes are coming out at Modcloth and Topshop. As for my collage, it's all Modcloth. I couldn't resist! They have the most charming floral frocks and shoes. Hopefully I can save up some money to snag some cute wedges.

I also wanted to feature Mayo in my blog for the first time. Her endless wardrobe never fails to impress me, I love her outfits! They are always too cute and she pulls off the 'socks and heels' trend perfectly! These three outfits are by far my favorite. Check out her ah-mazing blog.
P.s: Any idea of what I could do for a giveaway? I'm stuck and I need some suggestions. I want to hold one soon for my awesome readers! The comments you leave are so kind! xx
p.s: Looking to update for Spring? Frankie Sunshine is holding a marvellous giveaway to spend $200 at her e-boutique!

That peter-pan collar dress on the montage is so lovely! It's funny to think you are going into Spring as it's just getting colder over here in England!
Good luck with your ballet lessons & all your work :)
