Smile, You're Prettiest When You Do!


Keep cool, something that hasn't been hard to do with the weather we've been having here in Scotland. The weekend was wet and cold...but we had a marvellous time at my daughter's play, my youngest daughter's birthday was marvellous and Sunday we spent the day at the zoo in Edinburgh. It was so much fun...I took lots of photos, but I need some time to prepare them for some posts, but they will come soon :) The seaside has been on my mind a lot lately...it's one of my favourite places...a place of calming peace and serenity. These colours always remind me of that feeling the sea brings...I hope it may bring you the same calmness as the week begins! Have a wonderful Monday dolls :)

Love loves

We had a great weekend too - celebrating my oldest :) And the weather was ok, but they promise *summer* this week to come, can't wait. Happy Monday doll, love these seaside inspirations,

  6. Wet and cold... sounds really lovely... we live by the sea, but it's usually too hot and clammy an affair to go lol! Wonderful minty picks -- that picture of Marilyn is so beautiful, and poignant too, when I think of what I've read about her (a bit here: http://bikbikroro.blogspot.sg/2011/04/on-marilyn-and-really-being-fabulous.html )

    1. It's only good when you've been too hot. Consistent cold and rainy wet is a downer. You become so tired and fed up. You can't go anywhere really as it's too wet, your clothes are wet, it just makes you feel cold from the inside out and you feel fed up. If it came in between warm sunny days, then it would be a relief, but since it doesn't it's not pleasant at all :)) Have a great week doll x

  8. Sounds like a beautiful weekend despite the weather. I really love the ocean gif. And someone actually said that exact thing about smiling to me this weekend. I tend to be a little too serious most of the time.

  14. Hey Kizzy! I'm so happy your daughter had a great birthday. They both had a wonderful weekend (play & zoo). I know they were ecstatic. I can't wait to see your pics from it. One day, I will have to tackle our zoo so you can see it! LOL Water is so tranquil! I love these pics. Thank you so much for your concerns about what happened here. It's amazing how news made it's way all the way to Scotland from here. HAHAHAHA It's sad. I'll talk to you more about it. Have a blessed week. ((hug))

  17. Ahhh the seaside. I haven't seen the sea in a long time, and I kind've miss it. I used to live just a couple of hours away from the beaches, and it was really nice being able to just hop in the car and drive. Now I am completely landlocked :( But these photos are making me happy!

  20. I wish you a wonderful week, I'm sorry that the weather is awful but I remember Edimburgh's zoo: it's amazing, I've been there and I'd love to take my daughters to visit it sooner or later. There was the penguins parade and it was awesome to see all the penguins marching through the zoo (I don't know if they still do it). Thank you for this beautiful Monday's inspiration, Mint green is one of my favourite colours!
