How did I not hear about Tiger earlier?

{Heart shaped dish, £3 for large, £1 for small}

{They're for kids but if you've got mini feet these would be sooo cute! Bear socks, £3}

This store is jaw droppingly cheap - and they have some really cute things.

Looks like they're mainly London-based at the moment, but on their website they say that they're looking to open more stores this year - can only be good!

Perfect transitional outfits for this time of year when you're trying to embrace spring - but still need layers to keep off that chill!

A pretty home

Tuesday, 23 March 2010

What a gorgeous and inspiring home! I love the clean white walls, dark wooden floors, retro wallpaper and, more than anything, all the beautiful arts and crafts displayed. It's such a magical and warm home.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! My lovely twin sisters treated me to pizza and Sister Act for my birthday and it was such a fun day. We gossiped over bruschetta, pizza and wine and then laughed and ate our body weight worth of giant chocolate buttons during the musical. I love my sisters.

Gorgeous pictures from photographer, Pia Ulin. I love the refreshing white walls with the bright touches of colour. So light and uplifting!

Loving these bursts of reds, bold animal prints and that gorgeous coat in the photo above (is it just me or does she look scarily similar to Sienna Miller?) The photo that I know I'm going to keep going back to is the one of the lady at the cafe. It makes me want to be that little bit bolder in the colours and patterns that I combine - it also makes me to get over to Paris asap!

Etsy: Noble Town Vintage

Tuesday, 9 March 2010

Such beautiful dresses from Noble Town Vintage. I just love it when I find a new Etsy shop!

Hope you are all having a lovely day. I spent this afternoon at my friend's preparing for her son's birthday party. We spent hours making bunting and then popped out for tea and cake. Perfect way to spend a day!

So many looovely pics of stylish ladies last week. I finally whittled it down to this final four. Hope you enjoy!

The lovely Helen from Helen Hearts (have you checked out her blog? If not, please do - such great posts) tagged me to share one of my bags and lay bare the contents, so here we go!

My rather battered satchel that I just can't let go of!

Clockwise from left: Filofax as I'm determined to be more organised this year, mag stolen from my Dad's Saturday Times (sorry Dad), keys, Vaseline (love their little pots), Touche Éclat for those dark circles, red lippie, trusty Oyster card and finally my beloved ipod

So I now tag the following lovely ladies! So keen to know what treasures you keep in your bags!

Lucinda from LuliBags
Caroline from Patchwork Hamony

Interior inspiration: Bedroom

Thursday, 4 March 2010

I have such a thing for hot pink. About five years ago I tore out pictures of an amazing house that was all dark wood, white and fuschia which I still consider my idea of interior perfection. The boyfriend is letting me take the lead on doing up our flat (I cannot tell you how excited I am!) but I have a feeling he won't be welcoming pink into our home with open arms - however, maybe a small touch of fuschia would be ok? Maybe like this headboard? It's worth a try!

On a separate note, thank you all so much for your enquiries about my new job. It's going well - I'm definitely not the most ambitious person out there but I'm quite enjoying being back in work (did I just say that?) and the people are such a chilled out and fun bunch of people - and we all know that it's all about the people at work!

Five things making me very happy today

Wednesday, 3 March 2010

1. Huge maps on walls. I really want one of Bangladesh for the boyfriend. He spent quite a few years there as a young boy.

2. This absolutely magical photo by Rebecca Miller.

3. This outfit is perfection - from the Victorian style blouse to the cute vintage clutch.

4. I'm such a big kid. I have such fun memories of the wonky swing in our back garden. Can you imagine how much fun it'd be to have one in your living room?!

5. In my opinion, bright red lipstick will never go out of style. There's something about putting on a slick of red lippie that can make the dullest day feel glamorous

Beautifully white

My poor boyfriend has me nagging him to move out to the countryside. It's not that I don't love London. I really do, but whenever I head back to visit my parents and see the miles of green fields and open space I just feel more alive somehow. Sign of getting older maybe?!

What do you guys prefer - the city or the country?

I would love to live a cute cottage. I'm quite sure that there is no way I could keep such a white place clean (I've already managed to spill a cup of coffee on our new cream rug!) but this place really is so beautiful.

Argh, I had a feeling that starting the new job and fitting in my usual blogging would prove difficult - and I was right! So sorry for the lack of blog posts last week. I need to get myself more organised over the coming weeks.

I'm playing catch up today, so these are my favourite pics from my go to streetstyle blogs from last week. Hope you enjoy!
