Off on my travels!


Tomorrow, I'm off to France for a short holiday! I can't wait - it'll be a great opportunity to practise my French... oh, and top up my 'tan'!

I couldn't resist taking a break from packing my suitcase to show you the latest addition to my bedroom, this beautiful vintage trunk. I feel like I should fill it with spell books and robes, √† la Harry Potter, but for now it's going to be a home for all of my old school books and sewing materials. And it was an absolute bargain at £4! I absolutely couldn't believe it, as I've been looking for one for such a long time and they mostly sell for well over £40. Unfortunately I won't be able to take it on holiday as it won't fit in the boot of my car, but it's nice to imagine taking it on adventures to far away lands.

Hat - 50p at the car boot sale!

Today I spontaneously had my hair cut into a long bob with a fringe! Bit of a ridiculous decision to make on a whim, but I've been in desperate need of a change for about 10 years... What do you think?

See you when I get back!

That is a neat vintage trunk. And I love the outfit you're modeling with it. ;) Your hair is very cute. I love cutting my hair short after it's been long for a while. A nice change, I think.

Sadie, I love your hair! It's so fun to change things up sometimes. And that trunk is fabulous. I'm currently using an old red suitcase for my sewing supplies, as well!

I really love this outfit! Orange & blue go so well together, & the stripe breaks up the block colours. You're so lucky to have found that suitcase for just four quid! They do sell for so expensive.

Your hair looks wonderful, wonderful!

The shortness the bob is so cute and makes you look so mature (and smart: in the Ugandan sense of the word; meaning very well-put together and attractive)!

What surprised me was that you didn't go straight fringe. You would be too hot to handle then (^_~)

love,

I have done exactly the same thing with my hair, Yours looks really nice though! i like it :)
I've had long hair for about 11 years now and the other day i just thought hey i fancy a change, so i had it cut into a sort of bob and oh god what a change! i'm not really used to it.
I so envy your suitcase! i know what you mean about them being expensive! What a bargain though! hope you enjoy your holiday :)

Your hair looks fantastic! That suitcase is such a great find. I have a small one that I picked up the other weekend that I put all my cameras in. I can't wait to get my hands on some more so I can stack them. Have fun on your holiday! Bisous!

Looove the hair! haircuts are best done on a whim, if you think about it too much, you end up overthinking it and just getting a trim! The suitcase is so cool, makes me think of Enid Blyton books and adventures!

Great case! I've wanted one for awhile too as storage but haven't yet come accross one.

Where did you pick it up at? I've not seen any in charity shops, may have to try a car boot sale.

Hair looks gorgeous too :)
