28.02 you tell me

So, given that there is going to be a lack of outfit photos over the next 7 days I thought it’d be interesting to hand the decision of what gets posted over to YOU guys.

Leave a comment with a post you’d like to see on adaisychaindream and I will pick and choose several to do this week.
Any I don’t use this week will be stored for future posting, as I often wonder if I vary things up enough here.

I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend

26.02 friday feeling

Hello! Welcome to the end of another week, and, eek, almost the end of another month! I hope it’s been a good one and you have a fun filled weekend ahead.

The weather here can’t make up its mind and we seem to have a rainy, cold day followed by a super sunny one (like today). That means yesterday was foul and cold and dark, and so my outfit was purely comfortable; all style went out of the window, I’m only blogging to shame myself!

Today I feel much brighter and couldn’t resist wearing my second pair of £1 tights, I’m so bad, I went and picked up duplicates in each colour yesterday as I love them so much, as well as the ring pictured below; also £1!

By popular (seemingly really popular!) demand, here is the recipe I used for my muffins…
Lemon Poppyseed Muffins
I had intended to use a recipe shared by a friend but realised it required oil, which I didn’t have!

I’m not sure how much I’ll be posting outfits next week, if at all, as my Dad has the week off work and it is far more awkward to get photos, but I’ll still be blogging and might find a way to get some pics in my room…it’s been moved around so my old photo taking spot is gone!

24.02

Hello, how is your week going? Same old same old here, so just a quick post with the usual outfits and this week’s baked goods.

Yesterday was cold and snowy so not much went out. Outfit was literally a case of grabbing whatever was clean and hoping for the best.

Today much the same, no real thought went in to this as you can tell. The tights are new, I picked up this pair and a teal pair for £1 each in Ethel Austin on my brief trip out yesterday.

I’ve stopped counting how many pairs of tights I own now, it’s getting ridiculous. I’ll be needing rehab soon.

This week I’ve baked lemon and poppyseed muffins at my Mum’s request. I used silicon cases in a mix of sizes, and we now have about 40 muffins to be eaten!

I’m pretty sure they wont be hanging around long, they smell incredible. There really is nothing like the smell of fresh baked goods in the house.

22.02 grey monday

After a weekend of gorgeous weather that ingnited hopes for Spring soon arriving, I was dismayed to wake up this morning to black skies and heavy snow. The sharp fall in temperature meant abandoning any pre made outfit plans and hunting around for the closest to hand (and clean) warm layers once again.

Remind me to book a ticket to Australia for next Winter, I am so beyond finding this amusing now!

Happy Monday, I hope it is brighter where you are xxx

21.02 happy tag

The other day I was tagged by Amy Marie to write about 10 things that make me happy. I think I’ve done this tag before, but I have an endless list of things that make me happy so hopefully there will be some new things featured. I think I’m going to stray away from the deep and meaningful happy-makers and focus on the light hearted and material side of life this time…

1. Baking; always puts me in a good mood, especially when I make things that get fantastic feedback- from lovely blog readers, to the people who eat it. My favourite folks to bake for are my Mum’s colleagues and I’m getting more and more requests for work day treats. I currently have a running list of things I want to make, so expect more photos and recipe posts.

2. Cereal; NOTHING makes a better snack than cereal sans milk. I am obsessed and currently have seven different boxes in my possession.

Photobucket

I used to LOVE these as a kid and still mourn their disappearance from the UK, yet stubbornly refuse to pay £7 for a box.

3. Magazines; from glossy fashion magazines to the cheap and cheerful woman’s weeklies full of bizarre true life stories. I find magazines a real indulgence and nothing can match curling up with one, and a mug of tea on a cold raining afternoon. Or in the Summer, lazing in the garden with a stack of the latest releases.

4. Post; Getting a handwritten letter or un-expected package in the mail is a sure fire way to turn my mood around.

Photobucket

This was sent by a friend who knows me far too well.

5. Photobucket

Self explanatory ;)

6. Reading a new book; I love and support my local library as much as possible, in fact I rarely indulge in buying a book brand new, but when I do the feeling of being the first to open and read it makes me smile inside. I am odd. It is official.

7. Bold makeup; Brightens the dullest of days.

8. Making jewellery; Something I don’t do often enough right now, it gives an amazing sense of achievement, even more so when people like it enough to buy it.

Photobucket

This will forever be a favourite.

9. Good hair days; because they rarely happen in my world.

10. Watching someone do something un-intentionally stupid; don’t pretend that seeing someone walk smack bang in to a glass door, or trip over their own feet doesn’t make you giggle, too!

I’m supposed to now tag 10 people, but well, 10 just isn’t enough. I want everyone (who can be bothered) to do this and spread the cheer.
