Taking a(nother) break!

Hello all! It's been a little while, hasn't it? I feel like my blog has been a little lacklustre, lately. I don't know if it has been but I definitely feel more than a little uninspired as a blogger. In fact, I think I've just been uninspired for life in general (except for playing ukulele, which I would happily do 24/7 right now) and a bit slumpy. And just tired. Somehow in that I've inadvertently been on hiatus here (I didn't even realise it had been two weeks since I've posted!) so I'll make it 'official' and just leave blogging (and tumblr-ing and whatever-else-ing) until the new year. Hopefully by then I'll be over the burn-out and I will be all inspired again.

I will probably still be around twitter and I'll definitely be on Instagram - I'm andibgoode on both. Until then, here are some Instagram snaps from the last month or so...

Love this 1960s cover for The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

Seems I've inadvertently started a South Pacific vinyl collection.


A new collection I've purposefully started (I'll write a post about that when I'm back.)



Think I'm going to give playing my dad's old Melodica another go.


Happy holidays, everyone and happy new year! Here's hoping you all don't forget about me (just kidding!) and that 2013 is swell.

Pink gingham with red

Firstly, thank-you to everyone who left a lovely comment on my last post! I'm still enjoying my new hair immensely. And, now, another outfit!

Every summer I feel like I've forgot how to dress for the warmer weather, yet my summer outfits almost always end up being amongst my favourites. Isn't that strange? Anyway, I was happy to find that this dress my mother made for me a few years ago (one of the first she made for me) still fits...well just. It's slightly more, er, sassy than it used to be. Ha. I wore it to go to my friend's workshop to teach her to play ukulele so I knew I'd be somewhere I felt at ease, just in case I ended up feeling a bit uncomfortable with the neckline.

So many people just hate red and pink together but it's one of my favourite colour combinations of all time.

I picked this brooch up at a craft fair held where I used to study quite a few years ago now. Unfortunately I don't remember who made it.


Also, I'm slowly working on a new layout (as much as I still love this one) so that I will finally be able to reply to all of your comments! But this time of year is hectic so who knows when I will get around to installing it? Eek.

*I've only just realised that many bloggers use the term 'gifted' in outfits for items that were given to them by companies, etc., but if you see the term 'gift' here it means that someone I actually know (a friend or family member) gave the item to me as a present. I'm not sure if anyone would have confused that but just in case! I like to be as clear as I can.
