1. Last time I post pictures of my underwear on the internet. But look how pretty! I made this this week using this tutorial from the beautiful Allyssa, but I was unable to do the straps like hers so ended up using miles of velvet ribbon for the straps, creating a bit of a bow overload, but when can you ever have too many bows? No sewing machine required, I made this by just using my hand needles and by scaling up the pattern slightly. Never again am I am buying these kind of bras, honestly so easy to make.
2. Valentines day sweet-treats. My sister got me a food related "dissertation survival kit" including brownies, biscotti and these heart shaped raspberry marshmallows. All of which was particularly bad for the old waistline, anyone else get studying munchies? The brownies didn't last the night but I saved the marshmallows for my valentines day hot chocolate, and don't worry Katherine, I saved you one, only one. For Valentines I also received a box of Hotel Chocolat chocolates, which have gone down very well.
3. My friend rewarded my dissertation efforts with presents! She cross stitched me this beautiful Narwhal, her cross stitching is stunning, its so neat even the back, so much so that you could be fooled into thinking the back was the front. She has such talent! I also received a Laudree savory cooking recipe book, Laudree books are the prettiest books in existence, coming in a pastel box, the book itself is flocked and each page is silver. Too Beautiful. The recipes are equally as stunning, while kinda impossible looking. Thank you so much Ashleigh!
How was everyone's Valentines day? I hope you were all spoilt rotten!
With love from,
