It's my dream to one day have my own sewing room in our house. A place which I can decorate and organise however I please, and where I can feel inspired and motivated to work every day. Me and George currently share the spare bedroom in our flat which we use as our office/ studio space, (half music/ half sewing room). Whilst it's enjoyable to have our own little hideaway up in the converted attic, where we can both be doing the things we enjoy together, I one day hope to be running my own little business full time, so having my own room to work in, as well as escape from when I need some down time, will be essential. Although this is a long way off, I'm constantly pinning and dreaming of my own studio. Here are some of my most recent loves.

Listening: to the rain.
Watching: New Girl.
Reading: A Beautiful Mess.
Liking: that I finally got some new clothes. My wardrobe was feeling sad..
Eating: raspberries and yoghurt.
Drinking: peppermint tea. I finally tried it for the first time recently, and now I'm hooked.
Wearing: pyjamas, the second I get home.
Wanting: to go wedding dress shopping.
Needing: to tick more off my to do list.
Enjoying: my new Ikea Raskog. I'm way too excited to finally have one..
Bookmarking: sewing machines, cameras and all the expensive things I want but can't afford.
Trying: to work harder.
Thinking: of new design ideas.
Wondering: what it would be like to design/ build a house.

T-shirt / Asos
Dungarees / New Look (old)
Sometimes it's easy to forget that my home town is surrounded by beautiful woodlands and countryside, so on Saturday me and George decided to spend the afternoon exploring. It was so nice to just walk for miles, have a chat and forget about everything else. How have you been making the most of this perfect weather?
I have an almost identical post from last summer right here. I can't believe it was a whole year ago!

ASOS under £20..
I rarely buy new clothes full price any more. Occasionally I'll treat myself to something affordable if I
need it absolutely must have it, but generally I'll only shop in the sales or on eBay. Of course there's a tonne of things I would buy if I had lots and lots of money, but realistically it's not sensible to splurge on clothing when you have important life stuff to save for (a wedding, a house etc..) and most of what we find on the high street is over-priced anyway! So, seeing as I haven't made a wishlist in quite some time, I've selected a few of my favourite pieces from my saved items page on asos, all of which are now £20 or under. What's on your wishlist at the moment?
