I adapted the Kate Davies owls pattern that I used for my owl jumper to make a little phone case for a friend of mine. I think it worked out pretty well! (If I do say so myself). I wanted to make a cute gif animation showing a phone coming out of the case but I realised that I can't take a photo of my phone, with my phone.. oh dear.

I've become a little bit obsessed with making banana icecream. I don't eat dairy products but frozen bananas make a really, really good icecream substitute! If you've never tried it, you'll be surprised by how creamy it tastes and you don't even need to add other ingredients. The recipe above from Use Real Butter suggests adding peanut butter or cocoa though, which both sound amazing!
Bookworm dress by the Velvet Bird
I'm sure lots of you are already aware of the beautiful Velvet Bird blog and her store. But if not, how sweet is this dress? Especially the elbow patches! I'm dying to order from her... one day, one day.
Since I'm off on holiday, I've spent a lot of time looking for interesting swimwear - how amazing is this swimsuit from We Are Handsome? Unfortunately, a) I don't live near a stockist and b) the range seems to be very expensive. But still, I don't know why there has to be such a large gap between the cheap high-street swimsuits that are basically a triangle of fabric held up with string, and the expensive designer swimsuits that look like they might be designed to flatter or be used for actual swimming. It's really hard to find something that's both nice and reasonably priced!
Finally, my friend Dorota has started an awesome style blog called Girl Scout. I highly recommend you check it out, she's just started but she looks like a total blogging pro. I think she's going places!
I hope every one is having a sunny July, do you have any travel plans?
