good vibrations festival '15

A few snaps of a little one down in Bournemouth back in April that my friend put on for his uni course, loads of lush music, campfires, poetry, workshops&  beautiful decor.

Hopefully they'll do it again next year. Check out the Good Vibrations website here.

Laura Ashley Craft Day

A couple of months ago (time is flying this year!!?) I was invited along to a rather civilised Laura Ashley craft day by the lovely people at Joe Blogs. I'd never been along to any Joe Blogs events before and this one definitely sounded right up my street... a chilled out day of crafting with free access to heaps of gorgeous fabrics provided by Laura Ashley and instruction directed by The Crafty Hen

Hanging out with some fellow bloggers, chowing sarnies and doing a bit sewing definitely trumps my usual pre-festival-stressed-out-midnight-sewing-machine-madness!

We got stuck straight in using some of their lush printed fabrics to cover cute notebooks. I made one for my mum! After that we had a spot of lunch and made the most of At-Bristol's lovely balcony areas.

moodboard & mixtape : I was like a satellite spinning away...

Last week I realised that I did something or other on my camera at Love Saves the Day which resulted in all of my beautiful pictures from the weekend being teeny weeny file sizes! :( So whilst I'm moping about that I thought I would bring you a little Love Saves inspired moodboard & mixtape!

Today this features some of my fellow traders at the festival, some of the naughty purchases I made as well as some other bits and bobs I'm liking at the moment. As you can see purple hair and matching glitter brows is my no.1 thing right now...

Today's mixtape brings you my signature blend of delectable lady vocalists, sure to blast away those Monday blues!

Mixtape 006:

01. 'Unstoppable' - Lianne La Havas
02. 'Molasses' (live) - Hiatus Kaiyote
03. 'River' - Ibeyi
04. 'Cellophane' - Sara Jackson-Holman
05. 'Gurjieff's Daughter' - Laura Marling'
06. 'St Jude' - Florence & the Machine

glitter curtain & dulcie's feathers

So summer has come around super quickly!!! 

I've already been to my friend's little festival Good Vibrations, had a glitter stall at Rave on Avon and sold headdresses at one of my fave festivals Love Saves the Day. Phew. Aaaaand I'm going to be jetting off to Bulgaria in just over a week as well!

Before I share some photos from those adventures, here's a couple of new headpieces I made for my stall at LSTD, what do you think?? 

I'm also super excited to announce that I'm going to be doing a festival style spotting column for The Festival Hunter, searching out the most whacky people in fields all over the country. You can read a little introduction to the feature with a few of my favourite snaps from last year here. Look out for the Love Saves the Day post which will be coming soon.

A couple of these headdresses are up in the shop now, but be quick as they are one of a kind and won't hang about for long!

Bristol Fashion Week Spring Summer 2015

Tara, me, Karen, Amie, Kelly 

At the end of March I went down to Cribbs Causeway to cover Bristol Fashion Week for Bristol24/7. Somehow it was my first time ever at BFW... It's definitely a rite of passage for bloggers from the South West so don't ask me how I've managed to always miss them!

I spotted some blogger pals I hadn't seen in a long while on the way into the pavilion and it was nice to catch up over some fancy fruit juices at the 'M&S departure lounge' while we queued for our seats. A colourful mishmash of dance and high street fashion, with models of all ages, BFW certainly doesn't have the same pretence as normal fashion weeks... and this season's holiday themed extravaganza was no exception.

It was hosted by the hilarious Mark Heyes and, this year, the ever eye rolling Lucy Watson from Made in Chelsea. Most of the high street looks don't tend to be my thing, but I really love how BFW caters for everybody, from adorable kids jumping about in summer dresses to older ladies looking more elegant than I could ever hope to!
After watching the show and collecting our bursting goodie bags we headed to Marks and Spencer's  where a blogger after party had been put on. I'll admit I was a bit skeptical when someone said it was in their changing rooms (!?) but wow what a lovely space it was! We were treated to a lot of v. nice nibbles (so much cheese.) and champagne as well as fancy hand massages, it was all pretty lovely.
