Lazy January

Things have seemed very quiet in the onetenzeroseven camp this month, like I have been taking January to lazily reflect on the crazy months leading up to Christmas… however I wish that were true ;) Here’s a lil round-up of where I’ve been these past few weeks:

Musical Manchester | Instagram

My girly friends and I took a trip around the UK to see our musician friends, Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons. We toured from Glasgow to Bristol to Manchester and to Newcastle. I love getting such a great opportunity to see the country, especially in the snow. More on the music later, for sure.
While I was in Bristol I got to finally meet lovely Jess from Yiskah Knits and she took me to some fantastic places in the city. More on that later, too :)

I’ve been working hard on some new designs for my handmade jewellery which will be arriving in my shops in the next week or so! I’m so excited for you all to see and I’m a little too in love with my own work – well someone has to be ;) I’m finally introducing a hefty collection of necklaces which previously have been a big gaping hole in my offerings so if you don’t have pierced ears now is your chance to join in the oneten fun! :)

I joined Vine! And it’s super fun… I thought it would be all vlogs and people pretty much talking a tweet instead of typing one, but it’s actually really creative and there are some fun little movies being made. It’s also really interesting seeing the bloggers I follow actually move and speak for the first time. I’m also looking forward to being able to post moving images of those moments where a photograph simply won’t do – such as the first snow of the year or a beautiful setting sun. Follow me if you’re on Vine and tell me your usernames in the comments! My username (as always!) is: onetenzeroseven

During January I have been sponsoring the Maiedae blog and I’ve really enjoyed the interactive aspect that comes with sponsoring Maiedae. I was asked for my READ. WANT. LISTEN. picks for the feature and it was super fun filling those out. You can read my answers, amongst others, here.

So lots to blog about in the coming weeks :)) Did you all have a lovely January? What were your plans for this chilly month?

Sun Soaked Winters & Being a Little Girl Again

Gosh, I freaking love Winter. Have I ever mentioned that? ;) Sun soaked skies and crisp air, that’s when you’ll find me frolicking in the park, not on hot summer days.
I’ve been wearing my Levi jacket a lot recently. I was bought it many years ago for Christmas, in fact, I was even still at school. I used to wear it with a hoodie to and from school every day and then I wore it a little again when I worked in retail as a light summer jacket, but then it got buried in the depths of my closet. I pulled it out again this winter and replaced the music pin badges with a couple of cute handmade brooches I got from Etsy. It’s a fun addition to my outfits and I definitely want to make a concentrated effort to dress a lot more fun while I’m still in my twenties. To dress with personality! I want to literally wear my heart on my sleeve.

Flossy The Cloud brooch by Hoobynoo World
polka dot moustache brooch by Lauras Jewellery 

Last night was Boyfriend’s birthday celebrations and a few of us went out for dinner and drinks. I wore my new blood red shoe boots and a floral dress with patterned cream tights. It was doll-like overload and I almost changed again before leaving, but decided to stick with it. When we went for cocktails I had mine in a teacup glass. I know there’s some discussion going round about girls being too girly, but hey guess what? We’re girls. Just because we like flowers and birds and pink does not mean we’re not smart or independent. I added my denim jacket again to keep it more casual, but I definitely enjoyed dressing more fun.

These tights look like the ones I wore when I was six years old, but all the more reason to wear them now I’m twenty-six. I grew up way too fast in my teenager years, as most do these days. I want to be a little girl again. If I could, I’d fly off to never never land and never come back ;)
I guess it makes a lot of sense really.. my dreams have always been quite child-like. I think you can get to an age where you become very cynical and dreams fade away, but I hope that never happens to me. Above all, I hope it’s always, always fun.

Loves x xx
