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.

So, about that posting more thing.
I'm currently sans internet for a while, (not sure how long, this week, possibly next also)

But here is a cute picture that makes me smile.

who knows?

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.

My dream house. I feel homely and warm inside just looking at this photo. Lovely.

This makes me feel inspired. To go travelling again, to write. It's a good thing.

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.

oh dear

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.

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.
