April Favorites

I know i'm late again, but I decided to do another monthly favorites post, because they're super fun.
As I said last time I've been feeling a bit ill recently, so sorry for the slow posting !
Welp, I guess we should just dive right in.

1. Bookbinding


Check out my Bookbinding Pinterest board here.

I've been getting really into making my own books; I made one for myself because it was kinda shit so I couldn't really give it away, and now I'm in the process of making one for my boyfriends mum and/or dad. I'm going to make them both a book. I got really inspired by some pins you can find here in my bookbinding pinterest board. I also love Sealemons youtube tutorials, she does loads of crap like bookbinding, casing, text blocks and some other stuff. I do wish she used the metric system though, cause 1/8th of an inch means fuck all to me. 

2. Handmade Ceramics


I get a big homeware boner when it comes to beautiful ceramics. I love handmade homeware, things like these are so unique and eye catching. I don't know if i'd actually use them for food though to be honest.

3. Bob's Burgers


Oh my god though, I have marathoned like the whole series in probably about 2 months. I'm so addicted and I'm nearly up to date, I don't know what I'll watch when I'm done, any ideas ? I can't really watch horror/stressful things at the moment so cartoons are good. 

I picked up four of these in my local bookstore each for under 2 euros, and they're so cute ! They contain one or a few short stories by notable authors. I picked up 2 Edgar Allen Poe books, a Brothers Grimm one and a H.G Wells story. They're just adorable.

5. ROMWE crop top


I love love love love crop tops so hard, and I love aliens, and I need this top so bad it's killing me that I'm so poor. It's so inexpensive too ! God bless you Romwe. It comes in a few colors, my faves are the white and baby pink.

6. Chamomile Tea


I usually drink coffee and black tea, but my doctor told me to cut out caffeine recently, so I've been drinking buckets of chamomile tea. I already drank it sometimes, but now it's pretty much my go-to hot beverage (besides Rooibos tea). If you have anxiety problems, definitely substitute black tea / coffee for herbal tea. It tastes bomb too, so that's cool.

Well I hope this was a fun time for you, I certainly had fun.
I'll be back at you soon with some new exciting and creatively worded bullshit, as usual.

Thrift // Mum's Closet Haul.

Yeah I know, it's been a bit of a long time since I last posted. Truth is I was at my parents and not only was I having a great time not worrying about anything, but I also felt pretty ill.

I'm catching up today with a thrift haul, plus a few bits I pulled out of the bottom of my mums closet. These are things she bought to sell on Etsy years ago, and when she closed her shop they just sat there, so I took 'em. 

So lets get started; 

Black floral child's skirt & Basic black button t-shirt.




This skirt says age 10 on it, and when I picked it up I was like "....... can I do it ?" and the answer is YES I FUCKING CAN. I squeezed my sausage body into this adorable piece of shit and I can rock it hard. I love the button details and the swoosh. 
The t-shirt is just a basic black button down top, but it fits really well and most importnantly it's suuuuper soft. Like baby buttcheek soft. 

High Waisted Light Wash Jeans



I just thought these were really cute. I actually thought they'd be baggier and more of a boyfriend cut but this looks nice too. They fit nice on the butt, I often have problems with high waisted jeans making my butt sag, but these do the job pretty nicely. And they look great with my little black h&m shoes. 

"Barbie" Grey Muscle Tee



When I saw this I was like elbowing everyone out of the way to get to it. I don't know I just love it so much, I think it looks so great with a flannel and some jeans. 

Green Mens Flannel



Well, I love flannels, all colours, sizes, everything. I just particularly liked the colours here, the green with a tiny bit of red is really cute. 

Multicolored Striped Cropped Shirt



This was at the bottom of my Mums closet, I love the design and it's so comfy. I like the length too, and I think this badboy would look awesome with any jeans and boots or a plain skirt. 

Vintage Boys T Shirt



I love this colour like, rusty orange is my shit. My mum got given this by a friend years ago and I used to wear it all the time, but I didn't think it would still fit me, and I hadn't seen it in years, but I think I can still rock it. 

Vintage Grunge Floral Dress





This also came from my mum. She had it listed on Etsy for ages but it never sold, and I thought it would look so freaking cool with some DM's and a hat. I like to leave it open at the bottom to get a lil sneaky sneaky sexy leg thing going on. 

Thanks for checking out my haul, I'll be sure to get my April Favorites up soon too.
