things i'm loving 'girlie accessories'

Greetings all,
Yay, it's Friday, love it, i'm taking the day off from life.  That's right, i'm dropping the children at school, heading to the gym, then a movie with my free Nuffnang ticket for doing a survey, bliss, might even treat myself to lunch!!  Weekends are long (& unexciting) when my husband is away, the housework can wait, until Saturday morning.  Fridays are also time to go play with Paisley Jade & reveal what we're loving.
Well on top of all the crazy sales going on, i'm loving . . . girlie accessories.  I trotted off to Seed to visit my gal pal who works there & stock up on pretty things for my girls (read: anything i can get away with wearing aged 36, i will borrow).
  For years i've used my daughters as an excuse to buy extra girlie accessories, even better when on sale.
 Flowers & butterflies, pinks & metallics, ahhhh.  That lovely silvery large butterfly is the second in our collection, such a hit as a brooch or in the hair, especially love the 2nd one was half price.  My eldest daughter is into 'shiney' hair pieces as that is her 'thing' & how she's 'known' at high school.  Happy to indulge, better than heavy eye make up i guess. 
 The little strawberry purse is from Kikki-K30% off sale & a great place to stock up on pens & stationery, i mean a girl's desk has to look as pretty as her hair, right??!!
 Love the fabric in this bow, i think it was $2.95 on sale, completely adorable.
Loving accessories, pretty things & stationery too . . . why not enter my paper packaging giveaway at the previous post.  Love your Friday people & have gorgeous weekends, love Posie

I live girly things too but at almost 40 it's getting harder to get away with! How did I miss your stationary post???? It looks gorgeous! Enjoy your day Posie, it sounds like you will x

Do you know that when I was growing up pink was my least favourite colour of all.
But now in my 40's it has become one of my favourites, particularly in winter as it is a lovely softener and accompaniment to the greys and blacks that sneak into my wardrobe.

I love that your big girl loves sparkles in her hair and I'm sure you have lots of fun with all of these treasures.

Happy day and wonderful weekend,

Felicity xx

Pretty, pretty, pretty! I have sparkely dragonfly clips that I just love - I'm not game enough to wear them often though, and I don't have any daughters.

WHat fun. I bet the girls loved them. I am looking forward to Ginger getting enough hair that I can actually put a bow in it!

Nice work! Miss B is in need of some girly hair accessories. I must take her on a little trip to update her 10 year old look!

Oh, I bought one of those strawberry purses too. Haven't used it yet. I just look at it. So purty!

Mama of 2 boys said...

Oh yes, I bought a couple of lovely items from the Kikki K 30% off sale... gotta love a sale and they had some delightful items on offer. I love all your girlie things, I can rough it with the best of them, but deep down, I'm a girlie girl too :o) xo
