A Pintastic Week - 21.06.2015

Hi guys!

How has your week been? Mine was great! I had my last exam on Wednesday, and spent the rest of the day hanging out with friends, which was awesome. I also went out for dinner a couple of times to catch up with some that I hadn't seen for too long. And now I am sewing my butt off to get everything on my to do list done in time for my vacation. On that list: two dresses I promised my mom for way too long already, a pair of shorts, a top and a maxi dress for me. I don't know how I'll get that done in a week, but we'll see.

Let's get on to the roundup!

- I have fallen in love with Reformation. I didn't know the brand until recently, but I want to have a lot of their dresses. It seems like I am not alone in that, as their Marion dress - which is one of my favourites - is already sold out... I also really like the Jasper jumpsuit.
- I also like these H&M shorts a lot. They might become my inspiration for the pair I am about to make.
- I'm trying to eat healthier, and I've been eating Monica's refrigerator oatmeal with cherries and chocolate for a few mornings. It is the perfect breakfast and I don't get hungry until noon.
- Rachael's flamingo jumpsuit just screams Summer to me, I want to go and steal it from her closet.
- Aimee made this very cute dress with a giant bow, that also really wants to hang in my closet. Luckily, she was so kind to share the pattern she used for it!

That's it for today, back to my sewing machine!

A Pintastic Week - 14.06.2015

Happy Sunday!

One more exam to go and I can start on my summer sewing plans, I'm looking forward to that. I'm taking a little time off studying today (not the whole day though!) as our village's annual flea market takes place. It is a rather festive day here, with food stands and a large bar and seeing people you know every 10 metres of the way. So, I'm hoping to find some little treasures!

I came across a few gems again while surfing the web this week:

- Brit+Co shared this genius father's day gift idea: a tool box with tools made of chocolate! As my father is very handy, but also has a sweet tooth, that would be perfect! In Belgium, father's day is today already, so this year it is not an option anymore, but perhaps the next one?
- Through Hanne's post, I discovered Ann Shen's illustrations, and I just love them.
- Perfect for your next party: tassle wine charms, so you know which glass is yours. And it just looks very pretty, don't you think?
- I've been following This Blog Is Not For You for a while, but somehow I missed her playsuit inspired by The Notebook.

What are you up to today?

A Pintastic Week - 07.06.2015

Hi everyone!

My busiest week during the exams is behind me, luckily, I'm having a bit of free time again. I plan on spending that spare time on looking for the perfect patterns for a summer wardrobe and sewing them up. Top priority: shorts! You will be reading about that somewhere in the next couple of weeks.

I have a few pins I would like to share this week:

- First off, I'm actually really jealous of Honigdesign's perfect denim summer dress. Did I say it is perfect yet?
- I have been trying to eat healthier, and these veggie nori rolls look delicious. I also know I can't keep that up without a treat from time to time, so I'm dying to try out this healthy ice-cream recipe based on bananas.

Have a great week!
