ASOS Spring Fashion Picks

Waking up to the sun shining automatically makes me excited. I am so excited for the summer months, and not having to wear like a gazillion layers to work. Plus, there is nothing more I love to do when I have zero pennies in my bank than to ‘pretend shop’ on ASOS or any other website I fancy. So with the slightly warmer weather approaching I thought I’d let you peak into my ASOS basket and see my top spring picks.

ASOS embroidered tee | ASOS linen maxi dress | ADIDAS jumper | ASOS flatform canvas trainers | ASOS Emilia jacquard ankle boots | GLAMOROUS fold-over backpack

Although I love everything I’ve picked (otherwise I wouldn’t have picked them duuhh), I think my all time favourites are the ASOS linen maxi because you could wear it on warmer days as it is, but it would also look cute on cooler days with a long sleeved white t-shirt underneath. Along with, the ASOS Emilia ankle boots because *insert heart eye emoji’s here* they are just beautiful.

Disney Classics Collection

So, if you didn’t already know – I am obsessed with all things Disney. One day I will go to Disney World in Florida, it’s on my bucket list and I am going to go whether I’m 21 or 50. I will live the magic. To fulfil my love of Disney I have collected bits and bobs over the years from ornaments to plush teddies and cups. But, I have been collecting the Disney classics DVD’s for a year or so. But not just the ordinary DVD’s, the special edition holographic cover ones. Don’t get me wrong, my collection is far from complete, but I though it’d be nice to share how far I have got with it.

I currently have 20 of the ever-growing 56 Disney classics, and I’m determined to create a collection of the lot which I can keep for years to come, and maybe even pass down my family some day. Lame? I don’t care, Disney has been one of my favourite things growing up so I am going to share that with my children and what better way to do this?

I have to admit, some of them are still in the plastic wrapping because I don’t ever seem to get chance to sit and watch anything these days – never mind a full blown film! But my favourites have been ripped open and watch repeatedly. I have to say my favourite has always been, and always will be The Little Mermaid. Ever since I can remember, I have loved this film and I don’t think anything will change that purely because of the nostalgia effect it gives me every time I watch it.

One of my more recent favourites has to be Big Hero 6 it just gives me all the feels and makes me so emotional although it’s classed as a children’s film. I have to admit, I am yet to see Moana, but I am looking forward to watching it because I’ve heard so many good things about it.

What’s your favourite Disney film? Old or new, spill! Leave a comment below or tweet me!

 

Why I Did I Start Blogging? | Sunday Thoughts

To a lot of people this may sound like a stupid question, we all started blogging because we enjoy it right? But for some people, like myself, there’s a little more behind it than ‘just because I enjoy it‘.

I have always been very creative in a lot of different ways I suppose, and when you’re a creative person you’re always looking for an outlet. Throughout my educational years, I loved art – I still do! I just don’t get time to sit and draw for hours on end like I’d want to. These days it’s more just of a doodle here and there and because I don’t put too much effort it into my doodles 99% of the time they’re a load of crap.

I also danced for a fair few years, until I finished college. I turned 18 and I just stopped, no idea why or how – just one day the passion to dance was there, and then it wasn’t. I’d love to get back into it but man, I just love to binge on junk food a little bit more these days, and the physique is just no longer there. Which I’m growing to accept, I’m no longer that 18 year old size 6-8, that could dance for hours on end and still be able to walk afterwards. People change.

In my college years, I did art, media studies and dance. Probably the most creative mixture you could come up with in A Levels. I loved the fact that I could create art in all different formats everyday, from music video’s to pencil drawings and so on, so forth. But when I left college and went into full time work. All of that creativity just disappeared – just like that. Poof, and it was gone. Well apart from the fact that my job title in Subway was Sandwich Artist. But there really was no art to making a sub, slap it all on and there you go. From there, I literally had no creative outlet. No reason to do anything, and I was working ridiculous hours too so even trying to fit anything in was much near impossible. But, I did manage to fit a few tattoo sessions in, placing art on my skin is creativity too, right? I had a few idea’s and my fabulous tattooist brought them to life. Although, I think he’d prefer the work awesome, rather than fabulous – sorry Dan!

All of that rambling on brings me here, to Dainty Dweeb. The only creative outlet I have left and that’s what it is to me. My creative outlet. Although most posts are me rambling on about anything that comes to mind, and to some it may not be so creative. But to me, it’s my creativity. I design my own blog headers, and all though my photo’s aren’t that great – I take them all myself. It’s something that subsides my desire to create, for now at least. I see all these independent women who are starting they’re own businesses and shops and I’m sat here like damn girl you could do that. Truth is I really couldn’t. I wouldn’t be able to survive all my bills without my full time job and I certainly don’t have the time around that to all the work that comes with your own business. So high five to you gal’s (and guys) who take the plunge and do your own thing. You are great.
