Sunday Favourites #123

It's that time of the week again...

I'm so in love with Sasha U's seahorse tattoo, and her daschund design is amazing, too.

I love this lady's colourful hair and eye make up.

Pretty manicure.

This is gorgeous.

I wish I had this colourful work space!

A British Arts organization called Vital Arts is working to introduce art in to Britain's hospitals, and 15 artists have already transformed the interiors of London's Royal Children's Hospital in to colourful works of art. These designs are so pretty, and must make hospital visits a little brighter for patients and their families.

These no-bake cake batter cheesecakes (and all those rainbow sprinkles!) look amazing.

Rainbow waffles.

This is Dubai's Miracle Garden, the largest flower garden in the world. It looks absolutely stunning!

I agree!

So beautiful.

NL Architects are proposing a chain of hotels inspired by amethyst gemstones. If this gets built, I'd so go stay there!

Keiko Lynn's room is amazing; there's so much to look at!

Did you know camels are raced by robots in Dubai?! You do now.

These Disney doughnuts are so cute.

I love these photos of an unlikely couple; Ingo the German Shepherd, and Poldi the little owl.

This photo is stunning.

How cute is this little mongoose?!


And a random video of a macaw having a shower and even operating the taps.

♥ If you're living with a chronic or on-going illness, you might find Shannen's post on self love, care, and coping with chronic illness really helpful.

♥ Doesn't Char look amazing in her Little Red Riding Hood print dress?!

♥ The Junebugs shared their favourite Etsy brooch sellers, and oh my God, I'm in love with them all! So many amazing pieces!

♥ I loved reading about Becky's visit to Harry Potter Studios during animal actors week.

♥ Sera explained from experience why you shouldn't believe what you read in magazines.

♥ These photos, showing the friendship between a little Austrian boy and a group of marmots, are adorable.

♥ Have you heard that the awesome eighties / nineties cartoon, 'Ducktales', is making a come-back in 2017?! Hell yes!

and I'll end with a light-hearted one:

♥ '48 photos that basically prove people in Dubai have too much money.' Did you know you can actually get bars of gold from ATM machines over there?! Or that some Police cars are Lamborghinis?! I think I live in the wrong country! Ha ha!

Wednesday Wish List

I've got so many beautiful things to show you today, so instead of rambling on, I'm just going to dive right in. Feel free to join me!

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

Blogger Georgina from the blog Fuller Figure Fuller Bust has just launched a small collection of plus size dresses in sizes 16 to 30/32 with Lady Vintage! The dresses are so beautiful! I adore the forest green and purple Lyra dresses- though I doubt I'm busty enough for these frocks.

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9

Modcloth always have the best dresses. These are just a few of the ones that I've been admiring this week. If I could get my hands on just one of these, I'd go for the forest green 'Like, Oh My Dot' halterneck. I need some green polka dot dresses in my life.

1 // 2 // 3

These galaxy leggings from Modcloth are f-ing amazing! I want them all! The good news? They come in sizes S/M up to a 4X!!

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

The range of Mary Blair dresses and skirts for Pin Up Girl Clothing are all so pretty. (Number 6 isn't from her collection). I'm loving all of those prints!

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

Lady Vintage have just added lots of pretty petticoats in lots of pretty colours, and I'd happily buy them all... y'know, if I was rich... which I'm not! I'm not greedy, though; I'd be happy with just one in bronze. Isn't that colour to die for?!

Erstwilder's Australian animal brooches are adorable! I particularly love the bilby and the platypus.

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10 // 11 // 12 // 13

Modcloth have the best jewellery at the moment. I'm liking all of the weather themed pieces, and I adore the New York City necklace. I'm also rather drawn to the 50 year calendar necklace (#13). My parents have had a bronze calendar just like that necklace for as long as I can remember, and I don't know why, but looking at the necklace is making me a little nostalgic! I've never seen a piece of jewellery like it before.

It wouldn't be a Wednesday Wish List without a novelty bag or two! I'm a little obsessed with the sweet peach bag from Modcloth. I've been lusting after a similar bag from Charlotte Olympia for about a year, but with a price tag of £1995, it could never be mine. I've searched high and low for a dupe with no luck, until this pretty peach popped up on Modcloth recently. It's not available yet, but it's far more purse friendly, and I'm very tempted... Can anybody tell me how much you can get taxed for shipping a couple of items from Modcloth / America to the UK?

And last but not least, are these three lovely dresses from Alice & You and Carmakoma via ASOS. One of each, please!

What's on your wish list this week? Why of these do you like best?

Sunday Favourites #122

Time for another dose of my Sunday faves...

I'm loving these geometric nails.


I wish all of this lived in my kitchen!

Sasha Unisex's latest tattoos are so beautiful. I now kinda want a unicorn tattoo...

Modcloth had nine of their employees of different shapes and sizes model their swimwear, reminding us how wonderfully diverse our bodies are and that we shouldn't be ashamed of that. I love this campaign, and I love that red polka dot swimsuit!

Are you familiar with the friendship between a little girl named Libby, and her piglet friend Pearl yet? They're the cutest! I didn't want to post photos of somebody else's child on my blog, but you need to go check out the adorable duo on Instagram here

This space is gorgeous.

I'm blown away by how realistic this art work is. Amazing.

Foxes from Japan's Zao Fox Village being all adorable.

Who remembers these The Garden Gang books?? I used to love these when I was little! I've actually been trying to remember the name of these books for years without any luck, and then yesterday they popped up on my Pinterest feed! 

This is so cute!

This is such a gorgeous look.

I'm in love with Hayley's incredible fruit-themed manicure! So perfect.

So true!

This photo is so beautiful. I'm pining for the sea right now; I miss being out in the water in Cornwall.

Uninspired by just taking photos on her travels, Teresa Lim creates amazing embroideries of the places she visits, and then photographs each one in front of the place that inspired them. Amazing!

A stampede of pugs and other pups! Love!
