26th March - 15th April

It's been a little while since I did one of these. So here's a few things from the past three weeks.


1. My parents went to visit family in Ireland for a few days. All of the photos my Mum took made me wish I was there too! Hopefully I can pop over for a long weekend or something soon.

2. I invited my friend (and the person who took ALL my outfit photos last year and the year before!) Lori over for a brunch catch up while she was home from uni and it was so fab to catch up. We also shot my last outfit post while the sun popped out for a few minutes.

3. Easter sprung upon us so quickly, I ate chocolate and relaxed with family all day. I can't wait for Spring and Summer to get into full swing.

4. I'm attempting the 100 Day Creative Challenge. I'm using the hashtag #100daysofshanicolesdesigns and although I have missed a few days it's still really helping me get creative again.

5. Something nerve wracking/exciting happened over the last couple of weeks, however I need to wait a little longer to see if it will materialise. If you don't hear about it again then it's no happening hahaha but keep your fingers crossed for me.

6. One of my favourite things to do is pop to my local shopping complex with friends for a mooch around the shops and a nice dinner. It's rare that we get days off together, so when we do it's nice to make the most of it.

7. We got the exciting news we've been waiting for for a few weeks now. The Norfolk house is all ours! We've got a cute little cottage in Norfolk to go to at the weekends and also turn into a holiday home for people to rent out too. I can't wait to spend as much time as possible by the sea.

8. I did a little design on a kraft gift back and it's got me thinking about products I could do in the future for my little online shop.

9. And today I did a workout, tidied my room and refreshed my wardrobe, packing all my Winter coats and jumpers up until next Autumn! I also did a little try-on of some new clothes I've brought recently and Summer clothes I've had for the last couple of years. I said it already but I CANNOT WAIT FOR SUMMER.

I'm SO excited for summer to come around. As you can tell from my previous fashion post (HERE), I've already planned a couple of outfits that I'll be wearing when the temperature finally stays at double figures. But for now, spring seems to have disappeared and been replaced by dull skies and on and off rain. *whyyyy* However, I did manage to get out and shoot a spring appropriate outfit while the sun was out the other day.

Dog photo is unrelated but SO CUTE!

I love Autumn and Winter fashion but, if I'm honest, I'm sick of the dull dark weather now. We had snow again last weekend?! I want sunshine and longer days so i can get more shit done. So, I raided my wardrobe and put together a couple of outfits ready for the Summer.

A SUMMARY OF THE LAST TWO WEEKS
26th February - 12th March

So, the week beginning 26th February was officially my week off from work. In case you didn't know, I work part-time in retail and had holiday to take. Above are a few photos from that week.

1. On the first day of my holiday I went on got my hair done. I started the process of going blonde all over with two sessions of balayage last summer but didn't keep up with it (hence the super outgrown hair that I hadn't toned in months).
My plan is still to go as light as I can all over so that I can go a grey/blue shade but it's still going to take time. We went way higher with the balayage and shorter with my hair and I LOVE it. I can't wait to book in to go even lighter.

2. I took some time to get my creative juices flowing again. The Winter has felt sooo long and I'm excited to have more daylight hours to keep making and creating.

3. IT SNOWED lots. My drive to work isn't the fastest and I use country roads to get from my town to work so I was glad that it worked out to be my week off. If not I wouldn't have been able to get there anyway.

4. I wore my Doc Marten's (which I've worn a total of approx 2 times). I did enjoy wearing them but I wore tiny little socks so ended up with cuts on my foot. Serves me right tbh. ha

5. More new products ideas. I'm loving brush lettering so think this will be prominent in a lot of my new designs.

6. How cool are these jeans. I saw them on the Monki website and fell in love, couldn't get them out of my mind so just brought them to see what they looked like on. And I adore them, they're such a nice fit for my body and I'm looking forward to featuring them in an outfit post soon.

7. I keep visiting Poppy. She's so sweet with so much character, and she's got her own mini tangle teezer JUST LOOK AT HER.

8. A little commissioned card for a lovely customer for Mother's Day.

9. Just before Mother's Day my sister and I went to a new(ish) shopping complex near me and I brought so many cool pieces. We also brought my Mum a few lovely things for Mother's Day. We got an orchid, an Emma Bridgewater 'Mummy' mug and some new pyjamas.
After she unwrapped her gifts we visited both of my Great Nan's graves and popped a cute little windmill on each one. It was so lovely to see people visiting their loved ones too.

10. Finally, on Mother's Day evening my Nan and Grandad came round for a chinese takeaway and brought Poppy to meet my dogs for the first time. And Ben fell in love, he spent most of the evening trying to convince her to play with him (he didn't succeed :() Maybe next time ay?

Here's a little summary of last week. Not much happened really but one VERY exciting thing happened.

1. There's a new puppy in the family! Not in my crazy house though so she's not mine (sadly), but I've visited her everyday since she came home and she's the cutest craziest little pup.

2. I've booked in to get my hair done. I started getting my hair balayaged last year but didn't keep up with getting it done. I guess I was hoping for instant results and for my hair to be exactly like the photos I'd seen. But my hair's pretty dark so that obviously wasn't the case. I'd left it to grow out A LOT. I'm excited to have new hair again.

3. Finally this week, I've got a week off. I'm so excited to spend the next week working solely on my little shop (shanicolesdesigns) to come up with some new product ideas and designs. I'm planning on spending the whole week in my little garden studio/shed listening to music and putting more items on my website. I should also tidy my bedroom while I've got all the time in the world!
