Fairylights, come shine my way

How I long to escape into a world where dreams neither grow old nor fades away,
where sweet songs are written every second of the day,
where the sun rises from your face and sets in your hands,
where flowers bloom from each step that you take...

Fairylights, come shine my way

Sometimes I wish I live in my own little dream world, where everything else cease to be and the only thing that matters make sense. At least for today, I'll hide in my dreams, 
so please don't wake me up just yet...

I was so deliriously happy to have found these fairy lights (they sound so much nicer than christmas lights) at Ikea for only $3 at the leftover Christmas decorations section. They're just perfect for a lovely time of playing dress up and pretend, something I used to do quite a lot as a kid.

Do you happen to share my childhood tendencies, dear ones?

Dress: The Angel Dress (worn as a top here)

Eeee, so pretty! I love the pearls and the dress too. I used to have fairy lights strewn all along my ceiling but they kept getting too dusty/falling down :(

sarahtay said...

Oh Sher, these are beautiful. Love the fairylights! So very enchanting. Ikea does wonders, yes. ;) I love playing dress up and such, being in my own fairytale land. It's heaps of fun, definitely. And those DIY flowers/headband, gorgeous!

I'm pretty sure escaping to the land of pretend play is already the first step to feeling better, yea? :) Stress gets a little chaotic along the way, sadly.

But I'm glad that you're really enjoying yourself with those fairylights - they do wonders! Thanks again for your lovely comment, sweetie. It really encouraged me. :)

I hope you'd have an amazing weekend, dearest! Chin up! xx
