asos.com + me = broke

How gorgeous is this dress? It's from ASOS.com and it is a beauty! Very Christmas-y and I might just have to spoil myself on it!

oh, chuck

Ah, this show is so good. I swear, the last 10 minutes of the latest episode (season 4, episode 9) made me weep!

(gifs found on Tumblr, both from here. Sorry they're so big, they don't load unless they're original size.)


These photos inspire me to write, which is nice. Normally my inspiration comes at 2am when I can't sleep, so this is a nice change.

emma watson

I have a confession to make. I have a bit of a girlcrush on Emma Watson. What can I say? The girl is stunning. She has a great sense of style, she's smart and she's funny. And to top it all off, she can act! Oh, Hermione Granger is all grown up.

edinburgh, my love

This is The Red Door Gallery. It's on Victoria St in Edinburgh, and is one of my favourite stores in the world. Everything in it is just lovely. Ah, it makes me smile just to think about it. If you ever get the chance, go there!

home sick

I'm home sick today from work, but this Christmas giveaway at the lovely Danielle's blog is making me feel a little bit better. Go enter! Christmas goodies for all, I say!


Seriously lovely photos by Stephanie Alves. For some reason, they make me feel summer-y.

(More found on her flickr, via Daydream Lily.)

oh hello

This is Tanya (on the right). She's magical, and funny and is really awesome. I'm really glad that she's a friend.


How simply lovely is this photo? Joyful!

this is donut.

This is my new friend Donut. He likes collecting acorns, finger painting (or paw painting in his case) and soft baked cookies*. He's pretty much my favourite thing in the world.

(I bought Donut from Jess' etsy shop, Teddy Bears Wednesday, and I am oh so excited to meet him.)

This is me. Happy on a Thursday afternoon.

I honestly think that Gemma Arterton may be the most beautiful person on the planet.

Seriously, isn't she just delightful? (Happy, jealous, etc)

emma and bertie

This video makes me so so happy and proud. This is one of me best friends in the whole wide world, Emma. She is so inspiring and artsy and just generally fantastic. It's her birthday today too, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMZO.

This makes me feel slightly frustrated.

I've tried about- oh five times, and my hair just won't go like this. Hmmmf.
I think it's because I washed my hair this morning and it's all silky smooth. I may have to try in a day or two when it's a bit scruffy.

Try it for yourself with this awesome tutorial.

More Brooke Fraser

Oh my word, I just came across Kiwi songstress Brooke Fraser's blog, and by gosh, it is so gorgeous.

This inspires me, and now I kind of want to go on tour somewhere.

perfect bicycle is perfect.

Oh my goodness, I'm in love.

But here is a cute picture that makes me smile.

I haven't posted for a few days (I'm sorry!) but I will post more over the weekend, maybe if I have the time.

In the meantime, here are a few photos that I love;

Gorgeous clothes in a gorgeous city, make me feel adventurous and luxurious.

This video makes me so happy, & excited for Brooke Fraser's new album 'Flags', which is out now on iTunes and in all good places where you can buy music.

I will not buy this dress online. I will not buy this dress online. I will not buy this dress online. I will not buy this dress online. I will not buy this dress online.

Self control. I've got it.

fresh as a daisy

It's amazing what the little things can do to make a good day better.

A few short hours ago, I was feeling tired after a long, but good day at work. After an hour of a fun exercise DVD, including aerobics and yoga, and a (too long) shower, I'm exfoliated and shaved, my hair is washed and brushed, my belly is feeling a little flatter, and my mood is a little brighter too.

Now I'm off to paint my nails and sit down to watch the newest episode of Castle. (The gorgeous Nathan Fillion & Stana Katic can't hurt either.)

This diary makes me excited for 2011.

it comes in threes

Just one last thing:

MASSIMO DUTTI Soft Film from Ginesta Guindal on Vimeo.

How does this make me feel?
1. Jealous. Of anyone who has access to these pretty pretty clothes. Oh goodness, they are gorgeous.
2. Happy. It reminds me of Spring, which is here (even though it may not feel like it at the moment, with all the wind.)
3. Musical. Come on, Florence & The Machine? What's not to love?


This makes me feel like reading a book. So, I'm off to do just that.

Hehehe. Too cute for words.

so happy

I know I posted about 25 seconds ago, but I just came across this, and it is seriously the cutest thing I have seen.


(via Turtles Eating Things, via Oh Danielle)


Makes me feel very bookish. I now want to track down the books that have been sitting on my shelf for a while.

oh nostalgia

This photo makes me feel nostalgic. And happy. And a little bit Scottish.

Photo taken by me, in Edinburgh, in July of this year.

In the words of the lovely Kendall, my heart is doing heartflips.

Because of this song.

The Stars; Sophie Madeleine

I heard this song for the first time about a minute ago, on Danni's wedding video. Which, by the way, just makes me want to get married. Or to plan a wedding. Or to have been able to go to her wedding. So gorgeous.

And for the low low price of 79p, you too can listen to this lovely song all day. Which is what I will be doing.

Happy making

This video just makes me want to dance.

I've just started this blog, I have another that I don't update, and I wanted to make this something that I would want to update daily.

So, this is my idea:

Every day, I will post something that makes me feel. Happy, sad, joyful, what have you. Any emotion, it just has to make me feel something, and hopefully, you will feel something too.

My name is Hayley, and this is my blog.
