It was my last day in Falmouth before returning to Swansea for the Easter holidays, and what a wonderful last day it was! The sunshine definately had put his hat on and we decided that it would be a perfect opportunity to brave the world with our pale legs and finally have that cream tea we've been craving for months! Overdraft or no overdraft, nothing was going to stop me from cream teas and vintage finds!

Upon visiting our favourite vintage shop in Falmouth, The two little birds boutique, I found this gorgeous 'Liberty of London' denim jacket. The pattern inside in just devine and it truely is an astonishing item of clothing! The previous owner, Alice Timlin (as written on the label) was a very, VERY, lucky girl! Thank you to the Two little birds for allowing me to photograph this lovely piece of vintage, if I couldn't own it, I at least had to share it's beauty!

It was also the Falmouth Flea Market in the WI hall, hosted by Kitty Gubbins. The photographs above show her set up, how lovely! Sometimes I just love being among vintage clothing and treasures, there is something beautiful about things with little stories behind them.

Also, a lovely spread from Hayleys Dream with adorable handmade jewellery! Simply wonderful :)
What a lovely day out with the girls! I will definately miss beautiful Falmouth this easter but at least when I return it is sure to be time spent in sunshine and upon seashore. Love, x

Lots and lots and lots of work to be done, but just enough to time to show off my expert fringe trimming skills and newest buys! The shorts and bra cost me £3 each; I was so pleased with my bargins!! The shoes are my absolute fave, New look, but beautiful and so comfy! I had a lovely day with My darling flatmate, India. She is leaving university soon and I really am going to miss her tremendously! We have some shenanigans planned for the easter holidays though seeing as we don't live to far away at home. My week have been a ray of sunshine compared to last week and I'm glad of it; pity Monday's essay is going to come and ruin my life. Hope you are all well and as ever, stay beautiful xx

The sun showed itself yesterday and the only solution to such glorious weather seemed to be shandy on the grass, sketchbooks and good company. Just look at how beautiful all my friends are! It was a lovely afternoon just before an even more eventful evening.
It was Falmouth's 'Spring Break' Pub crawl, complete with t-shirts and a score card to be entered into a raffle. It was good to be ot with the girls and to be drinking, singing and genuinely having a laugh; By this I mean causing as much mischief as possible. There was a powercut at 1am and so we headed home; however my fear of the dark left me a little traumatised. Other than that it was a good night!

Just a little bit of room decorating!
This week has been tiresome and dramatic, but i'm suprising amounts of happy considering the situation. We found a house for next year...finally! Feelings were hurt along the way though for which we all feel terrible. Home for easter in around two weeks, really excited to see my girlies, and my family of course. Easter means that my birthday will be fast approaching and, as much as I don't want to grow up to an ancient age of nineteen, i'm looking forward to some grand celebrations. Never will the Breakfast at tiffanys quote, 'Promise me one thing, don't take me home untill i'm drunk', take on such meaning. My poor liver! Nevertheless, i hope you all enjoy your week just as much as i am determined to enjoy mine!!

'A stranger has come
To share my room in the house not right in the head,
A girl mad as birds

Bolting the night of the door with her arm her plume.
Strait in the mazed bed
She deludes the heaven-proof house with entering clouds

Yet she deludes with walking the nightmarish room,
At large as the dead,
Or rides the imagined oceans of the male wards.

She has come possessed
Who admits the delusive light through the bouncing wall,
Possessed by the skies

She sleeps in the narrow trough yet she walks the dust
Yet raves at her will
On the madhouse boards worn thin by my walking tears.

And taken by light in her arms at long and dear last
I may without fail
Suffer the first vision that set fire to the stars.'

Love in the Asylum - Dylan Thomas

(Happy Saint Davids Day)

It's the first of March, Saint David's day and this is where I consider that spring has begun. In a walk to asda, how adventurous, there were daffodils and catkins everywhere; this, to me, is spring. I've just spent my morning making the largest batch of welchcakes i've ever made and i think i've outdone myself; not to be big headed or anything, as that is something i'm definately not, but they are delicious! I even put red undies on in honour of Wales <3

In the afternoon, inspired by watching James Brown on 4OD, I decided to attempt to do a beehive for the first time. Here are the results, i'm not too sure; what do you think?
This song is my ultimate Spring song :) I'd love to hear what your spring songs are?!
Have a lovely March!
