14 April 2009


i treated myself to an easter vogue. i don't buy it every month as i used to for so many years but i occasionally feel the urge now and then and the may 2009 issue holds a gem of a fashion story alongside stella tennant's diary of the trip to damascus...so i'm not disappointed that i gave in to the glossiness.

i only happened to pick up the issue by accident though. i find the covers hit and miss. something like this from the inside on the outside would have had me running for the counter with my pennies...ok pounds then.

to me her haircut is the best. it is inspiring me to go for the chop. a bit more blondiness wouldn't go amiss right now either. i may be armed with bleach and dangerous by the weekend!

dark chocolate nests have been made here. and i have eaten most of them already greedy person that i am...the next batch must be given away before i have more moments of weakness! and another batch must be made or that packet of shredded wheat just sits at the back of the cupboard until it goes out of date for the following easter.

it is so good to be on holiday for a long weekend. four days in a row is heavenly right now and we've got a few nice things planned to do plus a whole lot of time with nothing planned which my other half is particularly fond of being the spontaneous creature that he is! i fancy a go at dyeing some eggs as seen here...an old red cabbage in the fridge is calling me to try this. hope you enjoy your time off too wherever you may be and whatever you may be up to. my good intentions begin again next tuesday!

p.s. i'm loving whatever you are be a good one...from one of my favourite etsy shops paloma's nest

edited to add a photo of the dyed eggs...such lovely colours...it'll be hard to break those shells at lunchtime!
