Happy Wednesday to you all my lovely readers, I hope you're all well. I must admit I've been crazily busy over the past few weeks, rehearsals for Sister Act have been going swimmingly, I can't believe that I've only got two and a half weeks left before heading out on tour! Time flies when you're having fun I guess :)
|I wish I could be this happy about the rain!|
The only thing that's been getting me a little bit down has been the weather recently. It seems that summer is well and truly over, and although I do love a crisp cool autumn day I really don't enjoy it when the rain starts, looking like a drowned rat has never been and never will be fun! I was endeavoring to sing my way through the rain today but it was hard work! I do hope the weather is better where you are, and if not here are this week's wonderfuls to bring a little ray of sunshine through all that rain (and if the weather's good you're lucky enough to have great weather and these wonderfuls, I'm jealous!). Enjoy!
- As a lover of all cakey things in general (can you tell?) I loved this post on Beas of Bloomsbury by the lovely Jane Brocket. I've tried their cupcakes before and they are delicious, but after reading this I think that I must pay them a visit and get a Sweet Afternoon Tea with my Sweetheart :)
- Is it just me of is Elsa of Grandmother's Pearls unfairly gorgeous? Check out these pictures of her on a recent photo shoot and I'm sure you'll agree with me. Plus her little hat is just too cute!
- A big thank you to Natasha Bailie for posting these photos of Russian photographer Ulyana Sergeenko's first fashion collection. Everyone of these outfits is stunning and the colours are beautiful, I definitely be drawing inspiration from them for my own autumn/winter sewing projects.
- I really do think that this may the perfect apartment, or at least it's the apartment of my dreams! How lovely to live in a beautiful place surrounded by beautiful things :)
- As you know I'm a big fan of make do and mend, so I loved this article by Tasia about prolonging the life of your home sewn clothes by considering certain things before, during and after the sewing process. Brilliant advice and i shall be taking it all!
- This is a brilliant post about foundation garments from Boo Boo Kitty Couture, with some great vintage pictures and then examples of where to buy. The only problem is that now I want to spend all my money on them...!
- And finally we have an article from Gertie about how to pad a peplum, as always it's clear, concise and so interesting! Gertie had been a little absent from the blogosphere recently - completely understandably as she's preparing to release a book, I cannot tell you how excited I am about this! - so I'm really happy that this post also includes a promise of a VoNBBS update! Very exciting! (If you don't know about Gertie's VoNBBS project it's basically the reason she started blogging, see more details here)
That's it from me today lovely readers, I hope that you have a great rest of the week whatever the weather :)
Bye for now!
