Making Me Smile

25 July 2013

Hitting up the Zara sales and getting super lucky by finding a pair of nude heels that I love (been searching for a while)
 AND finding that, for once, they actually had them in my size. Not such a common occurrence here in Korea.
Baking this baby for the Mr's birthday last week and celebrating with him over a romantic dinner.
Eating this baby for  breakfast for the rest of the week. 
I don't care if it's not healthy, frosting and sprinkles make me happy.
Receiving these incredible purple, blue and white roses from the Mr as a thank you for a great birthday. 
Not something he needed to thank me for, but he's just a cutie like that.
Creating more new designs to add to my Etsy store. And all the support I've received from everyone so far, thank you!
Hitting up the Zara sales a second time and scoring this blouse for little more than the cost of a cup of coffee. Then wearing it with my orange tassel necklace. Being matchy matchy makes me happy. Maybe I'll go back for the matching blazer... No? too far?! ;)

How do the weeks keep flying by so fast?! I can't quite believe that we're approaching the end of July already, wasn't it just a few weeks ago I was saying I couldn't believe it was April? 

Despite not having nearly enough time to get everything I want to do done, I'm enjoying being busy and I suppose that's why the time's flying by. I feel like it's been a very productive week, especially if you count finding some absolute bargains at Zara in the sale, which I do!

Who else shopped the Zara sales, what did you get? Leave a link if you've featured your finds in a blog post :)

Hope everyone else is having a productive week too.

    Beautiful photos! The shoes are gorgeous and the cake looks so delicious!

  2. Gorgeous heels Amelia! I could just eat a slice of that cake right now!!
    Happy Thursday Hun xoxo

  3. Oh my goodness, those sandals are to die for! I know I've been frequenting Zara a lot more than I need to since their sale has started, but I just keep finding more and more things! It also doesn't help that everything is so much cheaper!

  4. Oh, the ZARA sale... I always manage to leave half of my money in there. Such great deals, though.
    This year, however, the main ZARA in Manchester closed down for refurbishment just before the sales started, so I didn't manage to pick anything up in store, but was eyeing so many things online. As always - nothing in my size! DAYUM, going to try for the mid-season sale!

    That cake looks lush! Don't feel bad, honey - sprinkles all the way!


  5. What an amazing find those heels were. JUST LOOK AT THEM!

  6. OMG, I love those shoes, they are just what I am after for my wedding shoe! I have been online on the UK site and I can't find them! Do they have a name or anything?
