Dainty fragments left blowing in the wind...

Hello dollfaces, welcome to Friday once again...quite a long week, the weather has been slightly improving..all the birthday cake is now gone, I managed to clear a bunch of old clothes and things from my wardrobes, so I am pleased. I shall have a relaxing weekend, with hopefully plenty of sunshine & see you here again on Monday! I have a lot of tags to do, so I thought here and there, I would go through them and answers the questions I was given along with some bits from my day to day life as well! 

Have a wonderful weekend darling dears
 Loves & Loves

Insta - Visions from my week: Flowers spotted outside a hotel, while I played ball with my youngest as we waited for her sister to get done with drama class, cheeky squirrel in the park eating walkers crisps, you can see it bigger on my Instagram, I think he/she was super happy finding some crisps. My youngest daughter's birthday cake from last Sunday, all gone now, but it had My Little Ponies on it, she loves the ponies. You can see them all bigger on my actual instagram.


~ Life Lately ~


Watching: Game of Thrones, Hannibal, The Originals.
Reading: books on Artists like Klimt, Degas & Gustave Moreau. And some history books on Cabinets of Curiosities & Decadence.
Tasting: Birthday cake before it was done, Fruit smoothies & Kingsmill mature cheddar & red onion mini toasts - addicting!
Listening:Old stuff like - The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Ella Fitzgerald & new stuff like Hurts or Bastille, I like very little new music.
Looking Forward to: Holiday time, Hot sunshine, time at the beach & seeing if the new show Penny Dreadful is any good.



 I got this from Harlynn at Mind Your Madness. I hadn't ever seen a fairytale tag, so I thought why not, give it a go!! Only a bit of fun. So, here are the questions & my answers. Feel free to do this one yourself, if you wish :)





Snow White - Do you consider yourself beautiful? 
Of course, I am unique & I am myself. I accept myself the way I am - flaws and all. I think everyone is beautiful, I just think the definition of beauty isn't correct between all those people. It isn't found in clothes, make-up or those kinds of things, it's something presented in the heart and soul of each individual. Some just choose to flourish it & to help it grow more than others. Physical beauty is fleeting, but the inside is what matters.

Sleeping Beauty - How many hours do you sleep at night? 
 Not enough, I can tell you that! With a child that rather sleep in my bed at the moment than her own, I sleep with little room & wake up with a arm in my face or foot in my ribs, LOL!

Cinderella - Do you have a curfew?
No, but I did growing up.

Rapunzel - Do you love being outside?
I do indeed, especially if there are bunnies or peacocks outside or crazy squirrels, who like to eat walkers crisps - see my instagram :) But, I don't like spiders or snakes and things like that.

Red Riding Hood - Do you trust strangers easily?
No, I think a stranger will tell you anything you want to hear, to get you to do what they want you to do. But, sometimes eventually, strangers can become friends.

The Wolf and the Seven Young Kids - Are you easily fooled?
Not,really, but it depends on what it is. There have been people in my life that have pretended to be my friend, only to eventually tear my life apart, so you can't always tell, but you must always listen to your instincts, I ignored mine & that's when the person has turned into something different.

Beauty and the Beast - What makes someone beautiful in your eyes?
 Lots of different things - kindness, self-lessness, giving, helps others, takes care of those around them, accepts you as you are. It's a long list.

 The Little Mermaid - What would you sacrifice for love? 
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that!! Just joking. It depends, the person should love you as you are in those terms, but I did give up living in America to come to the UK to live with my husband, but it was a sacrifice well worth it!

 The Frog Prince - What do you find disgusting? 
Bad manners, prejudice, someone picking their nose, certain kinds of bugs, haha. Abusers, rapists, sexist pigs - those kinds of injustices, when birds poo all over your car or other things, when dog owners don't clean up their dog's mess on the sidewalks, LOL.

 Jack and the Beanstalk - Do you have any plants? 
Yes, I have some in my kitchen and bedroom.

 Puss in Boots - Do you have pets? If not, do you want them? 
I have pet geckos - 5 of them. Named after X-Men characters. I'd like to get more geckos, a chameleon and a bunny one day too.

 Bluebeard - What is your weak point? 
Sweets, cakes, cheeses...haha!

Pinocchio - What is your biggest wish? 
To just continuously be happy!

Peter Pan - What is your mental age? 
Well, I'm not childish, but I am very child-like.

The Star Money - What is your most valuable possession?
 I don't hold material possessions in any state of value, things can be replaced, people can't. I think anything you're worried about being stolen or broken, should be put in a safe or something. One thing I do love a lot is my father's softball glove or cards things given to me from my Nana...because their not here on this Earth anymore, but I don't need them to carry them with me.

Gold Mary & Pitch Mary - Are you a hard
worker or a lazy one?
  Hard worker indeed, you don't get anywhere by sitting around doing nothing or letting others pick up the slack for you, if you want something, go and work for it!

 The Snow Queen - Who is your best friend? 
Jesus, my husband, Kim & Dani California. 

The Princess and the Pea - Are you sensitive? 
Completely, but not that I cry for no reason or complain about everything. I more so have a great deal of empathy for others, I cry when others cry. I'm sensitive to feeling their feelings & I think that is a strong quality to have, I think the world needs more of it. When you can empathise with others, you don't just sit back and do nothing.

 Godfather Death - What qualities make a good parent? 
Hmmm...you have to be able to listen & listen well. A lot of friction can be caused by not listening & you must let your child figure out who he/she is as they grow. Teach them right and wrong, but also how to be themselves and not follow the crowd. Definitely Love - a lot of it, understanding, gentleness and a gently guiding hand. There are many things that make a good parent, the list is endless.

 The Twelve Dancing Princesses / The Worn-Out Dancing Shoes - Do you like parties? 
I do indeed, big ones, with lots of dancing and extravagant costumes and foods, music and laughing. And ones that last till the morning hours...

 The Emperor's New Clothes - Do you care a lot about your clothing? 
That depends, I don't have a strong hold on material things, but I care that my clothes have been made ethically & not costing someone their life or getting paid next to nothing so I can have something to wear.

 The Brave Little Tailor - Do you consider yourself brave?  
Yes, though sometimes I can be quite timid. But, when I don't put any thought into my timidness, I find that I am quite braver than I think. Well, anyone has to be brave if they drop their life in one country to jump on a plane to start a new life in another one, haha!!

  1. What a lovely post! I love your insta photos...the cake looks great (I've also made a cake myself recently for a cousin's wedding I was so happy that it turned out the way it was supposed to).

    That fairy tale tag is adorable and I really like your answers.

  3. The fairytale tag is such a good idea. Did you hand-make the birthday cake? It looks so sweet and like a little girl's dream.

    I love being outside too - when the weather is holding up, of course. And my biggest wish is to be happy for ever more, too. I had no idea you used to be a Stateside gal before you moved here! What you can find out from an innocent tag, eh…

    Hope you've had a lovely week and are looking forward to the weekend.

  5. Your daughter's cake is SO awesome! I love the little ponies! I can't believe she is 3. Time flies. I thought she was still under 2!
    It is so funny that she sleeps in funny positions. I wonder if we will have that with our little one some day!
    Have a lovely weekend dear!

  13. great post, it was very interesting to read your answers, so funny it's everything about fairy tales!
    I'm a Sleeping Beauty, I can sleep 12 hours a day!, and my husband sometimes call me The Princess and the Pea, because a lot of things hurts me, new shoes, clothes tags, the sun!, it's ridiculous!
    besos, bella!

  14. You are a lovely fairytale princess! (and I think you took my answer for the Sleeping Beauty question lol)

  15. The photos are fun. That squirrel looks quite well fed! I'm so in agreement with the Frog Prince question. My only gripe with my old neighborhood was when people did not properly care for their doggies, particularly leaving the poop on the ground!

  32. Intersting tidbits about our Fairy Tales characters. It's nice to know that Cinderella has no curfew now. I also have to clean out my closet this weekend. That will be quite a task. That squirrel looks so sneaky and cute. Your cake looks delicious too. Have a wonderful weekend.

  36. Love that squirrel! Haha! I live in a lovely suburb to Stockholm, and except for all the cats and dogs running around outside, I often see wild animals just outside my window too. Deer, foxes, and once even a badger! Last week when I was on my way to the subway I heard a rustle in the leaves, turned my head, and saw a deer standing just two meters from me - not scared at all! "Hi" I said, but he just looked at me and then kept on searching food on the ground. Haha! I love having those wild, magic encounters just outside the center of a city! :) <3 <3 <3

  37. Hello Kizzy, I'm finally here. Gosh how I missed visiting blogs. I spent a long time reading this post as I drifted off to check your Instgram to see what I've missed and also to do some prior reading before coming back.

    I thought I knew all the fairy tales. However, I didn't know about Blue Beard, The Star Money, the 2 Marys, The Godfather Death, The 12 Dancing Princesses and The Brave Tailor that I was spending some time reading up on these fairy tales on wikipedia while your webpage is still open. I felt I had to know the story before I could read what you wrote. I love reading all your answers and I've got the same view as you about beauty.

    Hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
