DIY Bridesmaids Cards

I am in love with these pretty invites with cutout paper bridesmaids, so simple but what a treat to receive one! The best thing is now even you can make them, just follow the easy to read tutorial by once wed. I'm pretty sure you could customize them to any occasion too..
 I don't know about you but when my head is in a bit of a mess I find the easiest way to calm myself down is to give my surroundings a good clean. So if your wondering why things are a little tidier and where all the clutter has gone this is why. I hope it is now easier to read and a calmer blog to escape to! I will be redesigning the header and possibly the layout for the Autumn/Winter 09 season but for now I think this will do. 
I just want to say a big thanks to all the lovely bloggers, photographers and designers who joined in my banner swap, you are free to remove my Nadinoo banner if you wish or leave it up if you would still like to support Nadinoo. x

Dress up Friday

Photography by Shawn Sheu

I am so excited about this weekend, as I have a special lady's hen do to attend. There are lots of fun activities planned most of which I can't reveal as to not spoil the surprise.
But tonight is dress up night and I have been trying on outfits all day, finally I settled on a peach silk kimono style dress which is a tad on the short side but I may be able to get away with it.
As I bathed in the sunshine all yesterday afternoon and had my hair cut and styled this morning I will be feeling every bit the precious lady tonight. A rare treat for moi!

Sunny afternoons

Photography by Anastasiya Podroyko

Since the Daily Candy article last Wednesday things have been very bust at Nadinoo, the orders and opportunities been flooding in which is more than I could have hoped for. I have decided to treat myself this afternoon as the sun is shining so brightly, I'm going to put on my Lula's sunshine set and head to the outdoor pool and catch some well earned rays.
Happy days!

I never really thought of myself as a soppy romantic but when my boyfriend yesterday surprised me with a tiny envelope (left on my pillow) inviting me to a romantic weekend in Prague, I cried like a little girl!
I have no idea what is planned or where we are staying, I just had to pack for sunny weather, I'm so excited!!..

Jump in the pool!

Photography by Guy Aroch

As a request from Daydream Lily I have decided to join in music Mondays. With it being so hot and lovely over the weekend and fantasizing aplenty about jumping in a delicious ice cold pool, I have chosen "Jump in the pool" a cover by Lenka of the Friendly Fires track.
I just adore this version by Lenka, it sends my heart skipping.
I hope you love it as much as I do!

Soft tones

Secret Squirrel SS09

I really have taken lately to soft skin tones especially when off set with another soft tone, it can look so flattering on either fair or tanned skin. I feel this Spring/Summer 09 collection by Australian label Secret Squirrel have illustrated it perfectly, I really do want every piece!

Illustration inspiration

Illustration by Rachel Bone

Today these little ladies have captured my imagination with their floral dresses, bowl hair cuts and mischievous sling shots. They may have even helped me finish off my Autumn/Winter 09 collection.
