Pretty things: Alicewphotography

Gorgeous photography at its best by Alice of alicewphotography. I can't help choosing either between Romantic Mr and Mrs Adorable print or Love me tender print because both prints are so sweet. If you're a fan of roses, you're in luck. She has beautiful prints of roses, rabbits or even a morning cup of love to kick start your day. Check out her lovely shop and blog.

Pretty things: StarletGlamBathBody

These lovely bath soaps are simply divine. I quite particularly have a strong liking for this unique handcrafted bombshell Marilyn corset soap. Its too gorgeous and even has gold mica accented on top. Other than that, these beautiful pink rose shaped soaps will make a lovely addition to any bathroom. Or perhaps, coffee soaps might do the trick. Ocean whipped cream is a delightful treat to add flavors to a bathing experience, and they even have these luscious lip balms which look good enough to eat, but are not edible - marshmallow confection in particular. I couldn't agree more. Vegan friendly, 100% natural and free from detergents, SLS and sulfates. Not tested on animals and fragrances are Phthalate-Free. Head down now to StarletGlamBathBody to check out more on their glamor and whipped soaps.

Pretty things: Kikosattic

Leather purse necklaces! I am so happy when I found these sweet little things. These are extremely pretty and dainty, thus they don't need words to justify their sweetness. My favorite pick will have to be this gorgeous leather purse necklace in ivory and lace! And if you notice, the interior lining is filled with 70s vintage cotton lace fabric which is hand crafted to each individual leather purse. I love it when a crafter has an eye for details. Visit this wonderful shop here.

Pretty things: Naomilingerie

I first 'pounced' upon this shop when I saw their cute cat sleep eye mask. Cuteness overload. Naomilingerie, as the name implies sells handmade lingerie, japanese style. You will totally dig their style, because they believe in 'comfortable lingerie for women who prefer to be different. Modestly sexy, keeping her innocence but still desirable.' If you're still not convinced, check out this video. Perfect for gifting, I'm sure your girlfriend will appreciate a comfy pair of sleep boxers because she can feel sexy without being over the top.


I don't know about you, but I absolutely love treasuries. Its really interesting what others can conjure using several different items under a theme, because creativity is filled with endless possibilities. My recently listed item, Our tree - a tree cut out in gold necklace is included in this treasury of gold wonders. And you should really check out elinay's shop, this shop is filled with interesting nature themed bird photography and drawings for all you nature lovers out there.

Pretty things: Eatpraycreate

Minna is the creator behind eatpraycreate, and she creates delightful handmade crafts. My favorite pick will have to be the Oh what a beautiful day embroidery wall art that will definitely brighten up your day and this cute pink cloud plush toy (children and pet friendly). She's having a current sale at the moment: For every second card you purchase, you are entitled to a 75% discount. Other items are at a discounted value of 50% off for the second item purchased. Offer ends July 25th. She has a beautiful blog, Teal & Tea so do drop by to check it out too.

This has got to be my most favorite lovely finds of the moment. Sweet pastel colors, altogether very sweet and feminine. I love everything featured here. That teapot shaped candle votive holder is so gorgeous, don't you think?

Pretty things: Post

by post

I was first intrigued when I first saw this picture... I was thinking to myself, 'What a beautiful tattoo!' until I realized that it was actually a tattoo stocking! Ultra coolness. Now, you can have beautiful butterflies tattoos without feeling the pain. And look at this cute Follow me twitter style stocking, I think its so cheesy with a bit of flirtatiousness added to it. Be sure to check out their Etsy shop for more interesting designs.

Kristybee has a wonderful assortment of romantic dreamy-like photographs. You can tell from the images above. This pretty is so adorable, its like almost believing that I have butterflies flying away gently near my windows. Kristybee has a blog too, if you'll like to visit for some wonderful eye-candies showcasing some of her photographs.

The lovely Gabrielle contacted me to inform me that my A letter to you necklace is included in her beautiful treasury containing items that are related to letter-writing. I love snail mail too, its the thrill of opening a letter to read the wonderful contents inside it ;)

Lazy Sundays

via source

Its a lazy Sunday again! Well, not quite since I've something to feature to make up for the missing Happy Friday post.

I have recently discovered a beautiful hand-stitched love letter specially made with lots of love from Kathleen of Twig & Thistle. Instead of going for the classic pen and paper method, she decided to go for this creative way of telling her husband how she adores him so. Made with lots of love, as you can tell. This will make a perfect romantic anniversary gift for your other half.

If you have no time for diy, then you will absolutely love KikiLaRu's adorable hand-stitched Only you love letter! A love letter that unfolds like a pocket envelope to reveal the words, 'Only you' complete with a cute little pattern at the back of a hand-stiched heart. Aww, I'm melting already.

I've also stumbled upon this wonderful site, Letters to Crushes where you can post anonymous messages to your secret crushes or if your love was unrequited, let it all out at Letters from the Crushed. Its a good avenue to release your emotions without exposing your identity which in my honest opinion will make you feel a thousand times better instead of keeping it all inside forever.

I can't resist sharing this beautiful DIY tutorial from Terry's Cherished Treasures on crafting these beautiful tree birdies! These will look fabulous as expensive looking decors for your home. Find the complete tutorial here.

And lastly, weekends are the perfect time for those special movie marathons with your loved ones! Snuggle up on the sofa with some popcorn and soft drinks along with a couple of your favorite movies and you're good to go. Rebecca has an awesome homemade caramel corn recipe on her blog, and its fairly easy to make so there's no more excuses to not make your own popcorn ;)

Happy weekend, lovelies!


Another feature in a gorgeous treasury! My Let me fill your heart vintage bubble blower pendant necklace is included here, among the other wonderful items listed in this treasury. Thank you.

The winners of my giveaway have been announced over at The Ardent Sparrow. Congratulations to Melissa 'O My Darling' and Clare of 'A Teacup of Whimsy'! You will be contacted via email shortly.

Pretty things: Braggingbags

by braggingbags

For a price of USD9.99, you can have your own personalized message in the wet sand along the beautiful beaches of of Southern California. A memory that will never wash away.

I really love this romantic gift. I am sure your other half will appreciate this thoughtful gesture because you could frame it up for memories sake. If you've always wanted a woodland theme wedding, Braggingbags offers other wonderful and personalized wedding decors made lovingly from wood. I like the fact that they can come up with so many different kinds of items made from Mother Nature. It is truly enchanting... My utmost favorite item from their shop has to be this personalized wedding guest book, for sure.

This reminds me of I Love You: The Wall located in Paris, France.
'What couple has not engraved its initials in a heart pierced by an arrow on the bark of a tree?'

Another inspiring love quote from Sophia of Canada.
"I say that love is when you can engrave each other's initials in a tree, and no matter when you go back, you won't ever want to cut that tree down."

On a Tuesday, I decided to don a lacy mini dress. Put on a romantic Paris themed necklace as I stare at my lovely frame decal on my bedroom walls. As I admire lovingly at the gorgeous art photograph sitting delicately on my dressing table, the beautiful scent of these sugar cookies candles lingers across the room. A romantic decoration plate has caught my eyes that read, 'At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet', which will probably keep me smiling for the rest of the day.
