pink out-takes

(I'm thinking of shortening this dress a little. What do you think? Should I add a lace trimming or some details to the collar?)

(I'm slightly obsessed with sparkly manicures lately. Whenever Izzy and I spend the day together it always includes a nail painting session and I tend to go slightly crazy with the glitter...)

How has your weekend been so far? I'm meant to be studying for the last exam of term but I have been procrastinating all day. I've done nearly everything possible to avoid opening that math textbook, including: baking the most delicious muffins in the world (they were decorated with hundreds & thousands), cleaning up my room, experimenting with make-up and reading magazines I've already read. I may have even stared at the wall at one point!

Tomorrow we are off to the markets and I can't wait. I haven't been in a while and I'm dying to get my hands on either some vintage pieces or a pot plant. I hope the rest of your weekend is positively marvellous!

Some little lace detailing and embellished collar would look gorgeous Maria! Your nails look so pretty too :)

Yay the markets, I hope you find what you're looking for. I'm heading off to the markets too; maybe we could share what we get if anything

In response to your question, I use a Fuji camera, it is nothing fancy like say canon DSLR's haha. But I edited the photos in my last post using photoscape (as I don't have photoshop) it's so easy to navigate and it's free!

P.S good luck with your exam! I know how horrible procastinating feels. Just remember to have frequent breaks and set little goals to get things done. I would go mad if I studied non-stop! Hehe

Oh you should try to fix up that dress! It's lovely already but I bet with some trim on the hem and collar, it would be even more darling.
Good luck on your exam. I always put things off too, especially when it comes to math! Yuck. Hope it goes well :)

Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog :)

I think a lace collar or some embellishment would look beautiful on the dress. I love your hairband and nails, so pretty :) xx

The dress would look even more gorgeous with a lace or embellished collar - I love them so much and/or a shorter hem. I love your manicure I had sparkles almost exactly the same the other day. What polish is it?

Good luck for your exam. I am a horrible procrastinator and today I have a science investigation to do. Oh boy....

Your blog is beautiful!! I absolutely love the outfits you put together, and I admire the feminine touch added to each outfit. The sparkly manicure is absolutely beautiful, it really compliments the dress that you are wearing. I think a lace hem and possibly collar on the dress would be absolutely gorgeous, but you look wonderful in it as is. Your blog has given me some great inspiration, thanks so much!!

There is nothing I love more than a pink dress. This look is so pretty and classy. My favourite sort of style. I adore the shoes and nails.

Ulrika said...

That dress is really beautiful ! I'd totally do something to the collar, maybe add some lace or ribbons?

Love the shoes too.

Your blog is really precious.

Kisses !

My weekend has been busy due to working but now I'm home and enjoying a cup of tea! Your comment touched me, you're so sweet, I got called Bug Eyes at primary school by some people haha. I would say yes to shortening the dress, but not much as I like how it's long and feminine! You look very beautiful indeed.

It's easy to procrastinate, especially when you're studying; I know I did a hell of a lot! Enjoy your time at the markets, hope you come back with many lovely things to show! :)

How lovely and femenine. Just charming.

The redesign on your blog is very beautiful! I love it.

This dress is a beautiful color and I like the length, but I'm sure it could be pretty shorter too. And oh my, your nails are fabulous.

The Sunshine District said...

What a lovely look:) I love your nails!
