Red head flat mate and I sprinkled merry merriment

No secret that I love all things deer ...

BUSTing to tell you the news

Sorry it has take me until today to report on the weekend's activities 
one was quite knackered

As expected, Pure Harte and I had a lot of fun at this year's
BUST Christmas Craftacular

It was extremely busy and suitably festive,
lots of friendly and smiley faces taking shelter from the bitter cold outside


this time around I was trialling my new embroidered frames

I was so encouraged by the positive reactions and sales, 
thank you everyone for that

I will be writing a detailed post on some frames I still have for sale ... perfect festive gifts 

(if I do say so ...)

 Pure Harte's new Velvet Peter Pan dresses caused quite a lot of girls to go weak at the knees
(can't wait to post the photos from her recent shoot)

We also had a CASE FULL of the most beautiful handmade mittens
Eves Weaves will soon be on etsy for the cutest of knits 

Thank you again BUST for taking us under your very creative wings,
it's a nice place to be

their prints are so well selected
and always make me laugh or sigh
although I don't know a lot about typography, I am always interested in the fonts people use and just how beautiful they are

(oh and what great festive gift ideas too)

here a few of my personal favourites:

Oliver Peoples

I was over at the fantastic Loafing Odysseys
and found this amazing video.

I am seriously not joking when I say I was only thinking today that I think I may need glasses

These beauties make that a very exciting prospect indeed ...

Of course having Zooey model them is quite a good selling point too

fever ray love

I was recently introduced to Fever Ray via K.I.D Collective
and have been in love ever since

their videos are so sinister 
but so very, very beautiful and inspiring
they make me have a million creative ideas every time I watch them

these two songs are my favourites
I thought I shouldn't keep them all to myself

because sometimes you have to step outside the person you've been and remember the person you were meant to be. 
the person you wanted to be. 
the person you are.

over at K.I.D Collective
I was introduced to the wonderful site,

ok, so it's basically just another online clothes, shoes and accessories shop,
but it does feel different
it's not pretentious, the models are beautiful but not frightening and the style is one I can fully relate to.
Casual but with a bit of an edge.

My favourite part of the site is 'shop by look'
 - a collection of outfits made up from shop items 
 even though I may not necessarily be able to afford the items featured,
I have been inspired to team items from my own wardrobe and be a bit more adventurous

a few of my favourites:

 oh santa please may I have this red A.P.C button shoulder flannel dress ?
