Dainty Life Lately....

Happy Friday my dolls!! I hope your week was darling!! I'm so happy for the weekend, it brings another step closer to spring & I can't wait!! Since the weather was a bit horrid and dark this week, I was unable to get any outfit shots done, but my husband has next week off, so I'll have a better chance to do it since it's lighter when he's at work rather than when he gets home. But, today I thought to share some life things at the moment!! I hope you enjoy & wish you all a fantastic weekend!! See you back here on Monday!!

P.S. Don't forget you can still enter my Serena Kuhl Giveaway...see here!



{Watching} well...thanks to Cheryl from Oh To Be A Muse talking about loving Sons of Anarchy so much, I had to check it out for myself & now I'm obsessed with catching up to America and finding out what happens!! If you haven't watched it before, it's about the lives of a close-knit outlaw motorcycle club operating in Charming, a fictional town in California. It centers around Jackson 'Jax' Teller (in the picture played by Charlie Hunnam) who is Vice President of the club who begins to question the club and himself. I've really enjoyed it, which I didn't know if I would at first, but my husband and I find ourselves staying up late just to watch another episode, haha! 


{Buying} My latest purchase...an icecream dress. It has owls & skulls on it as well in a vintage style dress! I'm so excited, I can't wait for spring even more now. I must get a fascinator or some kind of thing to wear with it & of course eat icecream when I wear it too :) I'll share where I got it in a 'shop love' post soon - all the dresses are made to order!



{Wishing to see} After my L'Occitane post and saying how I love blossom trees, the fantastic Yumi shared how they don't have blossom trees in South Africa, but they have jacaranda trees, well I had never seen one before, so I found this picture, aren't they gorgeous!?! I could imagine having these & blossom trees (if it were possible with climate) all over the place, both so gorgeous!! 



{Remembering} A little throw back to when it was sunny and lovely...my trip to Kelso Abbey!! I was wearing my 70's vintage dress that looks a little medieval like, I thought it was fitting for this place!! Thankfully the material was light otherwise, I would have been melting. It was far too warm for this dress, but thankfully in Scotland you can find a cooling wind when you need it!!


{Using} Some of my Barry M nail polishes...there is always nail polish in my house & my oldest daughter Saffron & I tend to use Barry M polishes, they come in a lot of fun colours. Lately, I've been buying more pastel and brighter coloured ones. The first two are the newest, the first one is from their newly launched silk nail paint collection...I'll be sharing a review of it in the new week along with the one next to it that I bought at the same time - I can never resist some glitter, haha!


{Dreaming Of} One day owning something from Ulyana Sergeenko! This will most likely stay a dream unless I win the lottery, but that's ok. I adore every new line she presents, the shapes, the colours, the fabrics...the way they are so lady-like yet have an edge to them, Love!

And lastly, I was contacted by the lovely company 'Born Pretty', they specialize in very cool accessories & they have kindly offered a 10% discount to my readers in the  jewelry & accessories section of their shop when you use the code below when checking out. I had a good look through it & there is a wide range of lovely accessories for everyone. I'll be sharing a review of a few of their products soon! Their prices are very good already, so it was very kind! Just click the link, find yourself something great & shop away - they do FREE worldwide shipping - woo!

Have fun this weekend dolls

  1. Dainty! I love your retro....medieval maxi! Looks amazing! And I was so chuffed to see the Jacaranda tress, you see, these are very common in parts of AUS! Our school driveway is lined with them!!! I love seeing them bloom! The first bud always signals the start of the last part of the academic year for students...we say 'exam time'. I will post about the striking purple branches of buds, just for you! But, you will have to wait for mid to late October! Xxx

    1. Thank you :)) Yes, I would expect Aus to have them as well since you both have such a warm climate. It would be marvellous to see :)) Yes please, I would love to see them. I can wait till October, no problem :)) Xxx

  3. Hey Kizzy - I haven't even heard of sons of anarchy yet (living under a rock in Scandinavia it seems;-) but it looks fab, must find it somewhere. Also adore the ice-cream dress, can't wait to see you wear it. Happy Friday doll, here it's freezing, wet and grey and I'm catching a cold - longing for sunshiny days too. Axx

  20. I've also watched Sons of Anarchy (on and off) and really love it! It's weird that a simple, good girl like me just LOVES shows like this, full of violence ..but there's good stories and laughter, too. That's why Dexter is one of the shows me and boyfriend just have to keep up with. :) And Bones is my favorite too.

    Also felt really dreamy when seeing those blossoming trees.. That sight is still way ahead for us Finns, but pretty soon spring arrives :) Cute dress, too - which I already saw on insta ^^

I have always loved your style and the colors of that dress is divine. Those nail polish color are sweet ,I especially love the glittery pink one.

  50. I never knew that Sons of Anarchy was about an outlaw motorcycle club. I often see the trailer on cable tv but somehow, I'm not sure why, I thought it was a political show! I haven't seen any motorbikes around. I can totally imagine you in that ice cream dress. It is so much of your style. Hope you are well-rested for the weekend to welcome the start of a new week!

  51. I really enjoy these "currently/what I'm loving" posts from bloggers. It gives me the opportunity to learn about new things and get to know them a little better. I haven't watched Sons of Anarchy yet, but I feel that I should since everyone raves about it. I also adore that dress and am wanting to check out the jewelry! <--I shouldn't, but I'm curious! -Jess L
