stepping stones

 1. My favourite nail polishes. A lovely purple colour called 'It's my year' and a sparkly pink called 'I Lily love you'. 2. My favourite outfit post picture from this week... the lighting is just so beautiful. The suns rays are always welcome in photos. 

3. Blueberry muffin for morning tea! 4. Getting ready for Emma's tea party ♥

5. Teeny tiny flowers for my ears. These are so pretty and dainty! 6. It was a lovely meal! 

7. Bambi earrings... these are good luck charms, I swear! 8. A bracelet I made on a school retreat a few weeks ago as a souvenir of the lovely time. 

9. Flower headbands I drew and added sparkles to... If you're wondering what I do when I'm procrastinating it usually involves drawing mindless little pictures, hehe! 10. Whilst sorting out some magazine clippings for a little project, I came across this bike. Yep, it's my dream bike. Pastel? Check. Basket? Check! ♥

11. My room/ sanctuary/ little place. 12. I love going through the archives of this blog... it's astounding how much I've changed; my style, my writing... this photo was taken in September last year. Time really does fly!

These are all such cute photos, thanks for sharing. I especially like the one with the hat, you are right, the sunrays really make the photo look that much more beautiful.

Ooh! That outfit photo is gorgeous! I love the lighting + the colors! <3

I also seriously love those Bambi earrings. Sometimes I wish I could wear earrings, but my ears refuse to cooperate with me. :-P

Thanks so much for the comment on my blog! I'm so glad you liked my outfit. I really, really love that blouse and I can't wait to remix it a ton! ;D
