A splash of colour...♥

...as promised here are my two little bags I made on Sunday.

The first one is a simple draw string bag which took me a whole 20mins to make - I'm still new to this sewing machine business so my lines are not straight at all! it's so cute and can be used for anything from laundry to potpourri holders.  I made mine (slightly too big) to hold one of my plastic camera's so it doesn't get completely destroyed in my bag.  I then decided to be a little more adventurous and attempt this cute little envelope bag.  It was more complicated than I expected with my material slipping around and my knack of not being able to sew straight, but not too shabby for my first attempt I'd say - I also got a little help from my Mumma sewing the elastic on, but hey!  What do you guys think?

I also got a little creative on my nails too and gave the marble nails another crack:

Barry M - Base & Top Caot, Grey, Bluberry & Cobalt Blue

They're by no means perfect but I quite like them, and using room temprature water was a big help.

For today's outfit, I had to dust off my favourite pair of boots from last spring and they are just so cute and vibrant but unfortunately falling apart sadly :(



Cardigain, Vest Top, Jeggings & Boots - H&M, Top - Primark, Neclace - Aldo

My outfit today makes me feel so happy because it's so bright and fun, it really does lift my mood and feel like I'm embracing Spring :)  For my hair I simply scrunched it to the back of my head and clipped it with a round crocodile clip and pinned it into place with lots of pins including a cut bow detail one.

Let me know what clothes and things you are doing to welcome the warmer weather?

thanks guys, the marble nails are reasonably easy to do, but quite messy, I've posted my attempt on my sisters nails here:
