spring inspiration

Mice flats by the one and only, Marc Jacobs! Aren't they cute? I would be tempted to name each foot ♥ 

This is one of my favourite outfits from Carrie's beautiful blog, WishWishWish. It's perfect for the changing weather here in Australia and has the sweetest retro accents (ie. floral pants and platforms, anyone?)

My new favourite recipe website is called Call me Cupcake and it has everything your sweet tooth could desire. This cake is almost too pretty to eat. 

Raspberry tarts! Definitely want to try this


An outfit fit for a picnic. I love the way Liz paired the gingham skirt with a cropped top.  

I've been wanting to try out whoopie pies for a while now and these banana ones look delish!

Hello everyone! I didn't mean to be away for so long! Time seems to be flying and there's nothing I can do about it. It's actually quite scary: before I know it I'll be finished my tenth year of schooling and preparing for my last two years. The two years that will inevitably determine my future. At the moment we are subject selecting and planning what we would like to study in university/ college. I'm still very undecided and a little bit anxious about the whole thing. I have no idea what I want to do when I 'grow up'! Oh well, I guess for now I'm just going to enjoy the fact that I have time to make such decisions; focus on earning money, my studies and my blogging life! Wow, I'm not even making sense...

These are a few things that have gotten me excited for Spring. I am getting tired of waking up to chilly mornings and am anxious for Spring to arrive. How can you resist blossoming flowers and not-too-hot-not-too-cold weather? :)

P.S: I was super duper excited because I was featured on Teen Vogue's snapshot blog again! You can check it out here and here :) Welcome to any new readers!

Ah, what a lovely inspiration post! I absolutely adore Call Me Cupcake, even though I cannot read Swedish. But, good food always transcends languages, no? :)

Hehe, it's so weird to read that spring is only arriving for you while fall is coming for me. I love a lot of these things though :)

Hi Maria, congrats on the Teen Vogue feature! Love the little mouse shoes even though I have real mice getting in the house this time of year and I hate them. The woes of living in the country! lol It's going to be getting cold here soon so I'm way jealous that spring is coming your way :o)

I wanted to let you know that I finally got a post up featuring the pretty dress I bought with the Shabby Apple gift certificate I won on your blog. I love it! Thanks again!
