Toms

So, if you have been reading this blog for long, you will have picked up that I like shoes. A lot.  So I discovered Toms, shoes that were like those espadrilles but just that little bit prettier, and if you buy one pair, they give a pair to a child in need! I simply had to have a pair.. so along came Christmas and a rather wonderful auntie, who gave me a pair in purple (natch ;D). So the whole time since I got the shoes, I was meant to do the whatnots inside the box, aka “flying the Toms flag”. Flying the Toms flag entails taking a picture of you flying the flag and making it obvious to the world. So i took the pics, (last Christmas) and they have been waiting patiently on my laptop ever since. So today, that very same auntie gave me a pair for my birthday, (my birthday isnt until september but she lives abroad) and it reminded me of my flag-flying-adventure that was waiting to happen… here goes!

Good News and Bad News

Hello my lovelies! I suppose I should start with the bad news… I am going away for a while (I should be back blogging by Saturday) and I will have no to the internet! It will really make me think about how much I rely on the wonderweb. And also I shall probably think of all the different names I have for this wonderful interweb.

     The good news! I am planning on doing my first set of outfit posts when I get back, and also sharing all the pictures from my holliers and the pictures from the Titanic Museum in Belfast where I shall be for 3 and1/2 hours on Friday. Yes, it really DOES take that amount of time! Also an update… PS- I Made That now has a facebook page!  (With a total of two likes so far, my aunt and my uncle. so help is needed here) And another update- I painted my nails… and am just about to write a DIY for my nail art. SO…. byeee!                                                                           annie xo      

 

                                               

I Finished One….

1. Bake more. Cook more. Therefore, (luckily) EAT NICE THINGS!

 

2. Write more. Short stories, poems, what I think I would be like if I was a cat. Actually, I really want to write that, like, NOW.

3. Make more. I have oodles of time on my hands, so I might as well put it to good use and do a few DIYs. Particularly decor DIY’s which brings us to number……

4. Decorate my bedroom. I am always doing it, then putting it off, then doing it again, but this summer…. I shall decorate until there is nothing left to decorate.

5. Explore. Photowalks… everyone benefits, right?

6. Try my best to get tickets to Castlepalooza. I simply MUST.

7.  Make friendship bracelets and give them to strangers. Who doesn’t love a bit of friendliness, however random it may be. So, watch out, people in Tullamore, a randomer giving out friendship bracelets is around somewhere!

8.  Cycle with no destination. Fun.

DIY’s I Came Across And Really Did Mean To Make But Never Did

This is a post containing four DIYs I came across and meant to make and never did. Admit it, we all have done it….. There is a fly in the room now and he isreally starting to bug me. Anyway! Here!

This first one is a mini easel from AY Hand Crafts.

Here I found 18 different ways to repurpose old glasses, lenses and frames! seeing as I wear glasses I can do a lot of these NOW, but what is stopping you going out and buying a pair of cheapo sunglasses or specs? The people behind these ideas are located at The ReFab Diaries.

i think these are so pretty, and Mollie would love them! They will also photograph really cutely. I found this at An Everyday Story.

This Hello DIY, found at Skunkboy Blog, is super super cute.

 

Sun?

Global Warming and Climate change is so NOT a myth people! Remember I did a post on how rainy it was a few days ago? Well now? The sun is splitting the rocks. Dude, really? So, I had to take some sunny pictures and here is my favourite one… I would show you all of them, but it’s actually NOT RAINING so i have to go outside and stop be vampiric.

Eight Things To Do During The Summer

I have created a bucket list for summer 2012. I am GOING to do do these eight things, if it takes me through volcanic acid or swarms of bees, I will do it.

 

1. Bake more. Cook more. Therefore, (luckily) EAT NICE THINGS!

2. Write more. Short stories, poems, what I think I would be like if I was a cat. Actually, I really want to write that, like, NOW.

3. Make more. I have oodles of time on my hands, so I might as well put it to good use and do a few DIYs. Particularly decor DIY’s which brings us to number……

My Sneaking Tears by Mark R. Slaughter

It’s raining so, so heavily today. So I found a cutesy rain poem and a beauts picture. I would have gone and taken my own, but… it’s raining.

How heavy fell the rain that day
From burdened clouds of mournful grey.
The torrent forced them stay their height –
Composure swayed by onerous might.

My skin wrung wet with icy chill
As mud embraced that sodden hill;
But mind of mine had elsewhere gone –
‘Twas clouds abandoned I was on.

The driving drops advanced their gears
To camouflage my sneaking tears –
Whence now did swell such floods of pain
To see me melt into this rain…

On equal bearing now were we:
This rain, myself, in harmony.

 

Pinterest

I recently joined Pinterest, and it is utterly amazeballs. I am mad busy and bored at the same time because its coming to the end of the school year! Go me. I have gotten a new haircut. I think it is verrry short. That is literally all that has been going on in my life at the moment… come to me summer! Oh, by the way, that isnt my haircut, that was taken a while ago.
