Dress and Shoes : ASOS (both old)
You may notice the two boxes next to my wardrobe. They are my other wardrobe. My friend is coming over this morning to help me build it. 

I built the DVD rack just fine.
The draws, however, were a little more difficult. It said it needed two people and I was like screw this, I’m Corinne, I do what I want. So tried it anyway.

I put something in the wrong hole and couldn’t get it out. I also snapped one of the runners. So I kind of had to blag it. 
This is how it looks in the end, the top doesn’t go on properly because of the thing I put in the wrong hole is too big. And also the top left draw doesn’t shut. But whatever, I build it, I am just trying to think of it as quirky.
I went for a run yesterday evening, up to Kirstall Abbey and ran around it a couple times, then ran home. It’s an ideal route for running, I’m going to try go twice a week. It is such a beautiful place.

Don’t forget to enter my give away if you haven’t already =)

  1. The dress is really lovely! I really suck at DIY – the best thing I can do is a very scrappy friendship bracelet. I’m absolutely rubbish at most things that require good skills in craft-making 😛 x

  2. Thats really a cute pretend dress. Thanks for sharing these pictures of the Abbey, looks like such a peaceful place.I appreciate your visit, hope you’re having a great weekend hun!

  3. Hi Corinne! So nice dress and shoes, looking pretty! The Kirstall Abbey is so beautiful, what a place where running, I wish to do it there too!:) Have a great weekend dear, kisses! xo

  4. Aaaaaw! Putting furniture together can be sooo annoying! I know what I am talking about 😀
    But I love your dress! At least you look absolutely gorgeous while building this stuff 😀

  6. Love the dress! Building things is for the birds! Way to make it work 🙂 love the pictures of the ruins too, beautiful!

  7. Don’t underestimate yourself… i would never attempt to “build” a wardrobe by myself! i wouldn’t broke it, would broke myself while doing it. So as far as i concern yours its a succes! ahhahah

  8. wow, that’s a beautiful dress! a little short but that’s fine. I really love your shoes too! Hope you had a nice day 🙂

  9. You look lovely and I’m impressed by your DIY skills! I put together one draw while my dad was putting together my chest of drawers and thought that was a huge achievement… xxx

  10. That dress looks adorable. Well that reminds me I have to do my wardrobe too. It’s waiting here for 6 month. I’m not that bad at it if someone tells me what I have to do. I don’t understand the instructions. You did a great job with the rack 😀

  11. Wow, your running route is beyond beautiful, I’m so jealous! Love the dress you have on too (:

  12. Absolutely jealous in a good way of how good your legs look and how awesome that run is at the Abbey!

  13. Ohhh, I do love that outfit in your first photos! Lovely dress!
    That is such an amazing place to run around! Where I’m from it’s all hills. Not so great for unfit runners such as myself and not quite as dramatic as that!

  14. PS: (Sorry- this is really critical of me but I know if it was me I’d want to know! You need to correct the sentence above this comment box to ‘Please leave me…’ or something.)
