I went to Tenerife with 4 friends over the summer and finally got round to sorting through the pictures I took. I've been once before, but this time round we got to go part way up the volcano - not all the way, I was too scared to get in a cable car - it was amazing.

It just looked like another world, or something that was supposed to be underwater (ironically there was no sign of water up there), I've never been anywhere like it. We also had some weird music come on the radio in the car as we made our way up - I was convinced it was the volcano creating atmos... probably just a good coincidence.

Dahlia Winter

This morning I was greeted by the sun as I looked out my window. The sun is deceptive. I got ready to go for a walk, even grabbed my sunglasses, stepped out the door and it hit me. That strange smell of winter was hanging in the freezing cold air and my day was ruined. I hate winter, with an ab-so-lute passion. I hate the way there are no leaves or flowers, I hate that it's dark all of the time, but most of all I hate that I only seem to buy summer dresses all year round.

I am a pretty cold person, but I really don't seem to help myself with choice I make when it comes to clothing. I think because I want it to be summer all year round I dress like it's going to be. I find layering hard, and I'm on a seemingly never-ending quest for the perfect cardigan - it's been 3 years. I wish I could pull off Alexa Chung's chunky sweaters over dresses and blouses but I just end up looking about ten sizes bigger than I am. That's probably why I'm so drawn to Dahlia's new collection.

Beautiful floral patterns, embellished collars and lots of scalloped edges all come together to create a perfect collection reminisent of the summer, but in colours that definitely say winter - there are even some longer sleeves creeping into their designs, and those without are styled with a light weight blouse beneath - now why didn't I think of that?

Upholstery Class

Tonight was my first night of learning how to upholster. I did, however, spend most of it pulling out the hundreds of staples in the foot stool I had taken in, but it was actually really rather fun. Unfortunately for some stupid reason I didn't think to take a picture of the stool in it's original state until I'd already ripped the top material off, but safe to say it's going to look better whatever I end up doing to it.
