Too Much of a Good Thing?

Spring, finally! I clean the house (trying to swing my hips like Rihanna; still gotta work on my Rude Boy moves...), tend to the plants (shamefully neglected), give the wardrobe the long awaited overhaul and cook my favourite Thai chicken dinner (probably should have asked my friend about her chilli tolerance before serving).

All this activity makes me so proud and self-content that I empty nearly a bottle of red wine on my own. (My only lame excuse being that not having had alcohol for weeks obviously made me forget how much is good for you. Also sensible friend could have helped me a bit!) Maybe that's why my picture has turned out slightly fuzzy today.

On a fashionable note: Dots and stripes - Too much of a good thing?


skirt: diy, t-shirt: 2nd hand, shoes: scholl

Dots, stripes and spring, how very fitting;-) You must share that Thai chicken recipe with the readers someday soon. Love the first picture, the blouse, skirt, the garden in the backdrop, the bag, your legs, all very pretty, my sweet thing. xoxo

Caroline, No. said...

I love the dots and stripes. I am actively looking for some new stripes in my life...

I'm still off the alcohol too. Well, I have the occasional glass here and there but hardly anything (compared to what I used to drink!)

Feels good but also a bit boring. I love wine. And being merry. :)

Maddy said...

I'm crazy about all the nautical stripes out this season! And I agree with you...I am mesmerized by Rihanna's moves in that video. Lol! I find myself trying to shake my hips too whenever I hear the song now :)

BTW- I never got into Gossip Girl, but I do want to rent the seasons when I have some free time. I hear it's yummy!
