last day of July

Saturday. My only day off this week. My plan was to really chill out, relax and just read magazines and drink tea all day. But then I got restless. I started cleaning the house, sorting out papers, preparing for a client meeting at 6pm, writing a few emails, cleaning my watch, yeah anything except for resting!
After the meeting all my energy just seemed to disappear. I just shut down. Had a glass of red wine at Moon and sixpence bar. Tired but happy. August month will be busy with work. Fun creative stuff, things you almost don't care if you get paid for, as long as you can do whatever you want to do, and design from your head and not from a clients brief. Anyway, went home, ate a nice summer meal. Salmon with new potatoes and dill and some nice fresh asparagus. And to top it off Waitrose own tiramisu. My favourite.

september issue

Good morning people. Having my breakfast and reading the September issue of Elle with Emily Blunt on the cover. The pictures of her in the magazine are perfection, so beautiful. This issue is full of wonderful knits, boots and lovely autumn pieces. My head is full of ideas of different autumn/winter outfits, so much I want! and not really so much I need. Just want.
I mean check out this wool playsuit. I want it, but do I need it? where would I wear it?

sometimes less is more

My dinner. Simple and delicious. Hard bread with smoked salmon, some squeezed lemon on top and salt and peppar. Loovely.

my brown brogues

On my way to Morrisons to stock up on food for a week. The glamour of my life! I really hate food shopping. Maybe because I don't like cooking. Also hate spending money on food, unless it's a restaurant bill.
Anyway, took a picture of my brogues today, because i love them. A must have in a girls wardrobe this autumn.!

Sammys birthday

What a top night! Celebrated Sammys birthday with lots of wine, champagne, fruity cocktails, cupcakes and later on greasy takeaway pizzas from Dominos delivered to the bar. Couldn't get any better than that. Now bedtime. Tomorrow work, and maybe a morning powerwalk. Maybe.

Today I'm a winner!

Thank you
SOLO Magazine!

You've made me a very happy girl!!

tuesday tapas

It's 00.45 when I'm writing this. I should sleep, but I can't. Had a really lovely evening at Velo Lounge with lovely people. Some spicy tapas and a couple of glasses of wine with my good friend Rachael and her boy Ace. Little Ace, a wild child with blonde locks, impossible to resist!

Bath continues to be hot and humid. Not sure if I like it, walking around with a shiny forehead all the time. Anyway, after work I decided not to go home, and instead go for a glass of wine. An ice cold glass of white wine. So nice. Summer evenings are wonderful. They make you forget all the boring stuff that you should be doing.

this morning

I know, my legs are not what they should look like in July. I have never seen them this white at this time of the year. Three weeks until holiday. But until then my Giesee Sun self tan will do.

Dress: Casimira
Boots: Minnetonka

i'm back

had a lovely weekend in Wales, despite the bad weather. Rain, wind and really cold. So no beach. No long walks. Instead long kitchen table chats, good food, and playing around with the dogs. Now, back to civilization and ready for a new productive week.

A perfect match?

To match your nailpolish with your accessories? hit or miss?

thursday casual

My favourite outfits usually involves a t-shirt and a pair of skinny jeans. With some heels, or wedges. Less is more, isn't that what they say!?. The background in the picture is Lansdown Crescent. I love it up there. The houses, the views, the sheep that are constantly eating in the field.

T-shirt: Urban outfitters
Jeans: Topshop
Wedges: Ash

I'm selling..

Ok, so this is a new thing for my blog. Every now and then I need to remind myself that I have got minimal storage at home, and that I just can't buy things all the time without letting something else go. One in, and One out! right?! Every now and then I'm gonna post items that you guys can buy, if you like it. Check under the Label 'I'm selling" on my blog, that's where you can easily find them after they've been posted. Have a look and who knows, there might be something you just can't resist buying! Enjoy.

Rayban Wayfarers

I'm starting with one of my absolute favourite classic sunglasses, Rayban Wayfarer Black RB2140 901. I have loved them lots but I have got plenty of sunglasses and that's why I'm now letting someone else enjoy them.


Price: £35 (paid £100 for them)

Free delivery

If you want to buy them or just have a question email me on

Mischa Barton Corsage Clutch

A really cool Mischa Barton Black corsage clutch. Perfect for day or night. Only used it once. I love it but i have got loads of clutches so one of them had to go.


Price: £20 (paid £35 )

Free delivery

If you want to buy them or just have a question email me on

a great pair of moccasins

These might not be the sexiest pair of shoes I have got but they are heaven for my feet. The most comfortable moccasin there is out there on the market. Just came back from a 2 hour walk in them, if that had been any of my ballerina pumps I would have about ten blisters by now. But never with these. They're from Minnetonka.

a sunday kind of love

Went to that new place valerie patisserie. Don't go there. It's a big time tourist trap. Their tarts were alright but I wouldn't rush to go there again. Just so you know. Now a movie and a big bowl of warm popcorn. Hope you had a lovely Sunday.

stay summer stay

After a chill day, follows a chill Saturday night evening... I'm collecting strength and energy after this week.

a long week

This week has been shit. You know one of those weeks when your head is constantly occupied with thoughts. Stressing thoughts about life and what the hell to do with it. When you think so hard about what you want to do, what you need to do, and what you should do, it just makes you even more exhausted and depressed. Yeah it's been one of those weeks... So I was happily surprised when I found these on the kitchen table this morning. A new Essie nailpolish 'tart deco' and a new Moomin mug. I'm a collector of these mugs, have been since I was a kid. I have got a good size collection now, the seasonal ones from 15 years back, go for a fortune now on ebay. I like.
Now off for a powerwalk, hoping it won't start raining.
