eye on the shop for the new headpieces as well as some fabulous capes which my friend Lucie has been making.
This morning I'm off to a #LauraAshleyCrafts event, will be nice to see some blogger pals and hopefully be cheered up about how I missed glastonbury tickets again this morning...

MY DAD HAVING A SQUIZZ AT MY ARTICLE IN BRISTOL24/7!
Easter weekend this year was a very mixed and busy one for me... I worked lots glittering faces at club nights, had my phone stolen on Park Street (!), did some flyering around town, drank incredible homemade cherry gin cocktails, ate a banging veggie roast at The Famous Royal Navy Volunteer, went to a techno night in an art gallery and basked in the glooooorious sunshine on Monday. Phew!
This week life has chilled out a bit and consists mainly of work with a little bit of play. My dad stayed at mine last night, on his way to visit our family up North, and this morning he treated me to a pre-work breakfast at Bill's.
I'd never eaten at Bill's before and, as I walk past the one on The Triangle nearly every day, I was keen to try it out. We loved its chilled atmosphere and the great attention to detail in the decor. I opted for Eggs Florentine whilst my dad went for Eggs Benedict and we shared a pot of Earl Grey. It was all served suuuuper speedily by our lovely waitress, definitely ideal since I had to be at work afterwards!
Excuse the ridiculous pout here but how great is it to be able to wear sunglasses already?? The sun coming out and the first (unofficial) day of summer has definitely cheered me up!
I got this nifty vintage inspired pair of sunnies with a River Island voucher I had left over from Christmas. I finally got something from Eclectic Eccentricity this Christmas too in the form of this amazzzzzzing bee necklace. I've been admiring their stuff for ages and definitely have a few more pieces on my wishlist...
Are you enjoying the sunshine? Where are your favourite breakfast spots?

How is it March already? It feel like I've barely finished digesting my Christmas dinner but the sun is already peeking out and festival planning is well underway. I've not mentioned it yet but I deferred university in January to focus on other projects, so until September when I start again I'm no longer a student! Instead I have been working at the Clifton Observatory and doing work experience at Bristol24/7 which has been keeping me super busy.
Today I've had a spring clean of my Dulcie's Feathers Facebook page and started planning and creating this summer's collection which will be up on ASOS Marketplace by April. It's inspired by Gods and Godesses so expect more embellishment than ever before with exotic trims from all around the world, bright jewel tones, lots of different textures and of course lashings of sequins.

I stumbled across these lovely photos taken by one of my customers last summer, this was one of my largest creations to date and these pictures are making me dream of fields even more...! So far I've got Love Saves the Day, Meadows in the Mountains, Lovebox, Secret Garden Party & Shambala in my festival calendar, have any of you got summer plans?

So as you know may know glitter is actually my job, or at least the act of putting it on other people's faces is! Although I've been doing it for quite a while I still love new inspiration. These are some slightly more subtle looks (subtle for me anyway!) that you could wear on any night out, I love holographic/irridescent glitter to add subtle shimmering colour and the delicate star sequins are beautiful. There are some seriously great metallic eyebrow looks on here too, I got the fantasy eyeliner from Lush for Christmas, it's an excellent way to get a bit of metallic into your look without glitter.

These pictures are from early last year when I loaned a headdress to stylist Kyran Low and I've only just come across them, I love the make-up! What do you think? Have a look at more feathery goodness and collaborations here.
