Hi! My name's Melissa and smellymellyblinks is a collection of daily life, fashion, food and music. In case you're wondering about the name smellymelly, it is indeed a nickname that comes from my partner in crime, Ian.

School’s got the best of me right now. Almost finished (well with the semester) !! Anyways here’s something that has been entertaining me in between studies: Arrested Development.

I can never decide which character is my favorite in Arrested Development it’s between Gob and Tobias. Gob: I’ve made a huge mistake and Tobias: I just Blue Myself. I’m excited  they got signed on for another season and even a movie!


First and foremost Annie is a major babe. Besides having the good looks she also plays organ in the band The Like. To be honest, I’m not that keen on their music but I dig the way they dress. Any band that takes inspiration from the 60s and incorporates short shift dresses and miniskirts into their style is fine by me. If you are looking for more of the black and white images of Ms. Annie Monroe look here


I don’t actually know to much about this band. I admit, I just started listening to them and every song is catchy that I want more… Turns out they have a new EP coming out or shall I say “dropping” (no I can’t) in April. The few songs I’ve listened to have a more psychedelic pop sound. Have a listen, wont you.

The music video is cute to.


I was going through old photos on my computer and came across these. Most of the floral pictures were taken at Kew Gardens in London. I would definitely recommend visiting Kew Gardens its not quite touristy and there is so much to see. The butterfly pictures were taken at the Natural History Museum, also in London. I can’t tell you how much I love butterflies. It was really nice to see them up close and personal, even to the point where you can pet them. Anyways thought I would post some of this pictures I had sitting on my computer since they fit in with this time of year.
