It has been about 2-3 weeks ago since I posted a “What I wore” blogpost, I’ve been so out of the loop with it and sort of lost momentum. However, it’s that time of month again when I blog about my new Dahlia dress. This one is the Margot Nautical dress, and it’s a really flattering white dress made of lace. The nautical collar is my favourite part, it makes the dress special and unique.

My monthly post is up on the Dahlia Girlfriend Blog where I mention that I am attending a food festival this weekend. I forgot how busy and crowded it gets so didn’t manage to stay as long as I’d hoped. I got some cakes, a few jars of caramel sauce (to make ice cream fruit salads more interesting), a couple of bottles of cherry and raspberry vinegar (to make vegetable salads more interesting) and also a couple of bars of organic soaps. 

During the week, I was featured on ASOS Fashion Finder – you can read it here. I did the interview in the beginning of March so had forgotten about it until it went live this week so it was a nice surprise. Has anyone joined ASOS Fashion Finder? It really makes you want to buy things!
I have made some subtle changes to the menu bag at the top of my blog (just under the blog header). I’ve separated fashion posts and beauty posts so it should make things easier to navigate depending on what you’d like to read about.

Let me know either way, I really value feedback and often make changes based on what’s easiest for everyone.
