I'm still on the hunt for the perfect swimsuit. I love these ones and the ruffled pretties I featured in my last post. Floral, polka dots, ruched middles and vintage-like details are making a huge comeback. If I knew where the above swimsuits came from, I would snap them up instantly! Any ideas?  

Read some of the new Frankie today, my oh my, it is a good issue. Everything about the cover is adorable including the surprising pretty contrast between checks and floral. I wish it wasn't a bi-monthly magazine though, I want to read about quirky things every month! 

Polyvore. Best site ever! The only limitation is your imagination. I love how you can create the most gorgeous collages in a matter of minutes.

Embroidery hoop wall art. Place some pretty material between the hoops, add a bow at the top and voila! I have one hanging up in my room at the moment and it looks really pretty. 

This mug. Story of my life at the moment. I can't wait until holidays so I can de-stress and unwind. A few more weeks, Maria! You can make it!!
