I am feeling happy, my skin is pink and I've eaten lots of ice-cream. It can only mean one thing...

I love summer, it's my favourite season of the year! Everyone is so much happier when the sun is shining and everyone seems to go out and about and do lots more. I can't tell you how many of my friends posted pictures from the beach or a BBQ this weekend! I am a "cold-tattie", someone who feels the cold pretty much all the time so this weekend caused a lot of wardrobe confusion. What do I wear when it's hot? Where are my summer clothes?

I knew I bought lots of summer clothes but they were buried under all the autumn--winter-spring ones (which is pretty much the other season in my wardrobe!), but I found them! I would show you the amazing outfit I put together, but from the neck up I looked awful thanks to the cold :( The red nose, streaming eyes and awful skin and hair did not match up to the outfit! I hate being ill :(

Some other ace stuff happened this weekend too!

I got my very first Blythe doll! I ordered her from New Zealand and had to be patient while she went through customs (and then had to pay the charges) but she's here! I've no idea what to call her, if it doesn't hit me instantly it takes forever to name anything. If you have any suggestions, let me know!
I made her a little summery dress too! I flew by the seat of my pants on this one, making a pattern from the dress she has and using some vintage fabric my Mum gave me, but it worked out pretty well! (Note: Sewing for dolls is much more difficult than for humans!) I also got the Womble I won from Armstrongs! If you are ever in Edinburgh you have to check this shop out, it is PACKED with all sorts of vintage clothing and accessories for men and women!
My May 1st anniversary edition Glossybox arrived complete with balloon and branded mirror. I'll probably do a separate post on that though once I've tried to the products out. I got this amazing mirror necklace from Avon in the sale cos I was looking for something longer and I love it (plus you can check yourself on the go!)

And finally, this just made me smile! My brother used to have this He-Man figure when he was little and he also had a matching Skeletor where they hit each other in the chest and it rolls around to show dents. He found one during the week and quickly adopted Barney his guinea pig as the new Battle Cat!

Tell me about your weekend, were you out in the sunshine?
