This week has been...

Wishful

Fluttery

Retro

Neon

In bloom

Al Fresco

★ As a little girl I was always told these dandelion heads were fairies, and to make a wish if I ever caught one. Let's hope it comes true! ★ 

★  The butterflies have been going cuh-razy in our garden this week. I guess fluttering around all day can be thirsty work...pint of nectar it is then. ★ 

★  I was thrilled to find out I'd won a prize in Vicki's super-dooper giveaway [who has also just got herself a beautiful new blog design, I love it!]. I joked that after winning these lovely retro glasses and a scarf, all I needed now was a convertible car. Unrealistic? Me★ 

★  After months of an admittedly half-hearted search for the perfect green/yellow nail varnish, I stumbled upon this Barbara Daily number in Tesco. £3 seemed a lot for a tiny bottle, but I'm in love with the colour. Speaking of which, check out Susie's latest lime green mood board, my subsequent craving for a Twister lolly is ridiculous. ★ 

★  Not only have the butterflies been supping up, but so too have the flowers it seems - the garden's full of bright colours and unusual shapes, I just pray the sunshine sticks around long enough to enjoy it. ★ 

★  Lazy brunch outside this morning which consisted of fresh fruit, honey, bagels and Nutella.
I know★

You should never have mentioned the twister lollies, because now I too am craving them!! Looks like you've had a lovely week, I love the butterfly pic, I've never seen one that colouring before, all the ones around me are usually white! (: x

I was always told that however many blows it took to free all of the puff on a dandelion clock told you what time it was. I have NO IDEA where that came from though!

UHG, those blueberries and mango look ridiculously delish. Jealous!

wowzers I wish I would take pictures like this! I love the picture of the *insert flower name and look clever*'s . Annnd I want to eat outside tonight, but being in the flat on my own and having no garden could make this quite difficult

Thanks so much for inspiring my lime green mood board, Danni! Absolutely love those neon nail polishes too.. I'm starting to get excited about fall fashion, but trying to remind myself that now is the time to enjoy the bright, bright colors before the world in enveloped in grey during those winter months. Hope you had a great weekend! xx
