"IF I CAN STOP ONE HEART FROM BREAKING, I SHALL NOT LIVE IN VAIN".

Reading: If I can stop one heart from breaking- Emily Dickinson.

I think its fair to say that I'm feeling a little tender today. Far too much rose was drunk last night- but I had a fantastic time with my extended family celebrating my cousins wife's 40th. So the diet was thrown out of the window and I've had tones of savoury snacks (unfortunately I coulnd't find any veggie mini scotch eggs or I could have said goodbye to my hangover hours ago) and fresh fruit juice.

As promised here are some slightly better pictures of my DIY jacket.





Sorry about the absolute mess in the background of the pictures- the second me and my boyfriend walked into our hotel room in Horsham we decided to be rock stars. So the bed jumped on and our luggage was pretty much thrown around the room. We left it immaculate though. Although a very minimalist Travelodge- its was very, very clean....



... witch was perfectly placed (a McDonald's and toy shop was outside our window!)...


.... and a cool fountain.


I hope these photos of my jacket do it justice- I had tones of compliments on it.

    1. Thank you! It all stemmed from my boyfriend buying an amazing cowboy shirt and I was like "i want that" and got me thinkinh about adding that sort of details onto a jacket. and he voted for wither using something like lace dollys or floral pattens out iof the hundreds of materials I forced him to review. I'm so happy with how it turned out- it was a surpise how good it looks and how mine and the boyfriends ideas came into reality.

      No problem your blog is right up my ally x
