A Home-made Suit

Well hey there! Happy Sunday. Following on from my last post about outfit recycling, I'm at it again; this time with a home-made suit. This time last year I pretty much lived in shorts suits - I was just short of sleeping in one - but then, well, then I overdid it and felt a bit like, 'if I see ONE more short suit...'. Fast forward 12 months and I'm back in love (so fickle) but really struggled to find one I liked. It was only when I spotted these two tomato red items sticking out from the sea of black that is my wardrobe that I thought, 'Oh hello. I think we're on to something here'. You may remember the jacket from this post at the beginning of the year, and the shorts from this more recent post. The shirt is a new purchase that sat in my saved items on ASOS for a few days before I caved. I do love me a printed shirt.

I think me and Rob are FINALLY off to see Trainwreck this afternoon, so I'm currently baking some healthy-ish cereal bars to sneak in my bag. CARPE DIEM, BABY. Speaking of which, I forgot to update you all on the beetroot brownies I made last week - Verdict: Good. Suspiciously good, to the point where the mix actually tasted like real brownie mix. I don't know who to trust any more.

I love printed shirts as they go with any plain bottoms- whether it'd be a skirt or trousers. Those Topshop red shorts look amazing!

Poisoned bait is a common method for controlling rat populations, however is not as effective when there are other food sources around, such as garbage. Poisoned meats have been used for centuries for killing off wolves, birds that were seen to threaten crops, and against other creatures. This can be a problem, since a carcass which has been poisoned will kill not only the targeted animal,

This tool is also used to manage several caterpillars e.g. Spodoptera litura, fruit flies, snails and slugs, crabs etc.

Adelaide is home to many species of cockroaches, including the Australian, American and smaller German varieties. The latter can pose a risk to electrical appliances, which they can invade. Cockroach droppings are also hazardous to health and can trigger asthma attacks and allergies. It is usually necessary to undertake a fumigation treatment to eradicate cockroaches. Our team understands the need to get rid of cockroaches without endangering your health in the long-term. We use cockroach bait gels together with pesticide fumigation with a low toxic formulation.etc. شركة مكافحة النمل الابيض بالدمام شركة رش مبيدات بالدمام شركة مكافحة حشرات بالاحساء شركة مكافحة حشرات بالرياض+++ we wait you here شركة تنظيف منازل بالرياض شركة تنظيف مجالس بالرياض شركة تنظيف موكيت بالرياض شركة مكافحة حشرات بالرياض
