skulls & spikes

so my obsession with anything spiked has sky rocketed, i spotted these bracelets in new look and had to have them! I can't wait to get paid again so I can do so some serious a/w winter shopping. I've got my eye on some gorgeous things on romwe - please don't sell out - basically anything wine coloured or covered in spikes will do! I have some exciting things going on at the moment, that I can't wait to share with the world, or just anyone so watch this space!

p.s 6 days till holiday, wooo!

i set my clocks early 'cause i know i'm always late

i thought i was doing so well with holiday prep! got passports ready, tickets printed, insurance ready. I just need to change my money into Egyptian Pounds. Until i was discussing it with my work colleagues and oh crap, forgot one of the most important things, to get jabs! So yesterday I scurried to the doctor surgery, i left feeling like a pin cushion. I have also treated my self to some last minute treats for holiday! 12 days to go!

Painted Lady Butterflies

For my sisters sixth birthday she had a butterfly garden amongst her gifts, so over the last few weeks off the summer we have been able to witness the metamorphosis of the caterpillar into the butterfly. In the pack she received five little caterpillars, we watched them grow into big fat grubs. We then witnessed the process of them becoming cocooned and releasing themselves. It was a truly wonderful thing to see, although they do bleed which was kinda weird! I would highly recommend this gift to anyone, not just children.
note: photo heavy post!

Lowri's Wardrobe

Today I began editing my blog layout, I have made lots of minor changes across the blog but they make a big difference to me. I haven't posted for a while, it is mainly down to lack of enthusiasm but blogging on a blog that doesn't really appeal to you is not good at all. I just got bored of the bunting design I made, I also had a lot of colours across the blog which was a bit distracting. Now I have a more minimalistic colour palette.  I created a few different headers myself, but got frustrated with them and opted for this lovely banner off which I edited in Photoshop. I do intend to create one myself but this afternoon I just became so frustrated that this was the last resort, but I think its quite sweet! 

I am in the process of creating an image map for my blog and adding pages, but this also frustrated me and it was best to have a break from it before I exploded! One new interesting page coming to the blog is 'Lowri's Wardrobe' it is clothes of mine that haven't been loved and deserve new homes, which I'm hoping my lovely readers will provide! Everything on that page is available to purchase for any enquiries, further images or to make an offer on a product e-mail me:
