Living for the weekend

Hi all, I hope you had lovely weekends in the sun. Brighton was gorgeous, I spent all of yesterday sat on the Lawns drinking cider and black from a plastic wine glass and chatting to my friends. I do have one burnt shoulder to show for it today though.

My friend and I spent Saturday attempting to make a cake for a childrens party. Although I did drink a couple of glasses of wine whilst baking, we didn't expect our hard work to turn out like this:

Nicely decorated though!!

On Saturday I wore this dress from Dorothy Perkins:

I've seen this on a few blogs lately, there's a lot of love for it! If anyone's thinking of buying it I'd definitely say go for it. The only bad thing is that it creases quite easily especially if you're hot.

On Sunday I wore this dress from Primark:

With a straw bag you can just about see (also from Primark), some Dorothy Perkins wedges from ebay, and an ice-cream necklace from Temporary Secretary:

I bought some cute material for making a dress, but when I laid out the pattern (a 1975 one that I'd bought from ebay) it was so confusing, and I need to make it bigger which I'm not sure about...I ended up wimping out and going outside, but at least I've got everything ready to go. I'm going to look at some websites and watch some youtube tutorials to help me understand what I'm doing. Any tips would be appreciated!

And in answer to your q from ages ago (sorry i've taken so long to respond) I am indeed a londoner, Balham to be precise, but me and the boy are thinking of moving to Hove, maybe! xx
