things I love // vines, strawberries, dresses

Dior details... pink, sparkly and adorned with lace? Check. 

Waffles with strawberries and cream... any occasion is the occasion for these!

Gorgeous and vibrant accessories at a San Antonio wedding. Photographed by Bend the Light

I don't think anything could be more magical then white, vintage inspired apartments covered in purple flowered vines. Wouldn't it be nice to walk past this every day after work? 

 Little origami dresses! Wouldn't they look cute strung up across a bedroom ceiling for a pretty themed decoration? I'm unsure of the source of this picture, but I did look up another tutorial on how to make dresses just like these. You can find it here

Stamped shortbread! A few easy hints here.

A few of my favourite songs too:
Lies by Marina and the Diamonds
Dream a Little Dream of Me by Mama Cass
Primadonna by Marina and the Diamonds
Little Talks by Monsters and Men

I returned from a school retreat yesterday with weary eyes but feeling overall content. We stayed overnight at a local lodge for a relaxing escape from reality... I felt like I was away for ages though! I guess that just proves how addicted I am to the internet though, hehe. Anyway, I was really excited because I was featured on the Modcloth blog for wearing my vintage dress! I submitted my photo, not expecting it to be published, and it was! Woohoo! 
I also did a little 'Wishlist Wednesday' guest post for Katie today. Take a look! :)

Ah. I love the appartment with the purple vines. I am confused by the first picture though. It looks a bit too much like someone got enthusastic with the glue-gun... plus wouldnt it all fall off? :P

Also, cookie stamps are an amazing idea!
