03 February 2011
February is cold, bleak and grey. Technically it is my least favourite month of the year but it also the month of my birth so I try to make the best of it. This morning I woke up to a flurry of snow and a literal gale has been raging all day so in order to combat the winter blues I compiled a list of lovely things that I would like to receive on my birthday. Admittedly this was an self indulgent past time but I'm sure that you will like them as much as I do and it brightened up my day.
1. TBA Urban Outfitters (coming soon)
TBA's SS11 collection has been all over the Internet and it is perfect as always. I think my greatest wish in life is to wear TBA everyday.
2. Union Jack Umbrella from London Undercover
My heart skipped a beat when I first saw this umbrella from London Undercover, it's it the cutest? It also comes in a lovely dusky shade with plaid instead of gingham. It rains alot in Scotland, I think I need them both...
3. Liberty Tana Lawn in Tom's Jet, Floribunda & Nina
All seamstresses love Liberty fabric, it's the thimble law! I would love like to make pretty dresses in all these fabrics but at £20 a meter I don't know if I would be able to pluck up the courage to even cut it.
4. Lula Petal Blouse from Nadinoo
Let us not speak, instead we shall marvel at it's perfection.
5. Books - Style Me Vintage by Belinda Hay and British Baking by Peyton & Byrne
The first book is an absolute necessity, my birthday party is going to be 60's themed and I will be attempting to style my hair like Joan Holloway. This book is full of vintage hair tutorials using modern techniques so hopefully it will teach me how . As for the second, I'd better keep on wishing and hoping because it isn't actually published until March (I didn't actually realise that when I made the montage). Move over cupcakes, its all about British teatime treats.
6. Cookie Cutters
These are also a wish that is unlikely to come true since they are made by an American company that don't ship to the UK but aren't they lovely. You can see them on Ellie's blog, it's all her fault that I love them.
What is on your wish list?
