the month of march

 

{Frankie is the perfect way to start of the month along with a spritz of Miss Dior, ribbon in my hair and Bourjois glitter}


I hardly ever buy Frankie and mostly rely on the local library for it, so when I received it for my birthday; I was overjoyed! It’s a scrumdiddliumptious issue full of witty articles (cue the road test feature on cake mixes, page 78) and gorgeous fashion.
Oh, and it’s probably obvious, but: I gave my blog a makeover! Christina designed me a perfect header and I thought I would go simple for the layout. What do you think?

School has been pretty good lately and knowing that something might be in the mail box waiting for me when I get home has made algebra a little less painful. I’ve gotten the prettiest letters over the last week, including a birthday card from Carina featuring a sweet girl adorned in ruffles (watercoloured of course) and an amazing letter/ goodie pack from Merissa (hello kitty paper dolls, ahh!). Pen pals really do warm the cockles of my girly heart!

I hope the start to your month is lovely! 
PS I also updated my blog button! Share it around if you fancy..

Love this photo. Miss Dior is to die for! And I've never heard of Frankie, but it sounds really interesting. I love reading magazines. :)

Aw, I love getting letters.
Hope you're having a great birthday!

This didn't come up on my news feed gah! But I love your new blog makeover, it is so gorgeous! Christina did a marvelous job. Oh and I have not read the new Frankie, I really must.

I'm so glad you loved my letter Maria, it's always a pleasure painting something for you!

The new layout looks lovely! I wish my bottle of Miss Dior Cherie looked like yours, mine is running very low.

Your blog looks beautiful! There are so many "smaller" (lesser-known) magazines like Frankie, Lula, Oh Comely, that I want to buy, but I don't know whether they're worth it! Would you say they are?
