Business As Usual

August 13, 2013

Afternoon all, how are you doing? I hope you have had an amazing Summer so far? What ridiculously good weather we have been having… although not that great this week to be fair!

You have probably noticed that there has been a bit of  a break on the blog, but I just wanted to let you know that I am back and it will be business as usual from tomorrow. I have lots of great features lined up for you, so make sure you come back to see.

Have a lovely day and I shall be back soon 🙂 xx

Coco Chanel Baby Shower

January 16, 2013

Showers (the party variety) are really an American thing – baby or bridal showers – but they are becoming more and more popular in the UK. As a wedding planner, a few of my brides have had them and they are always a massive hit with bride and guest.

I went to my very first baby shower last week and it was so much fun – we ate nibbles and cupcakes, drank champagne, gave gifts, talked babies, got broody and by the end were made un-broody with too much talk of One Born Every Minute hehe! Despite the exciting occasion, it is just a great excuse for all the girls to get together… so why not.

What do you think of this shower business? A great idea or just another cheeky, self indulgent way to get more presents?! I for one think we should shower more and wanted to share this gorgeous Coco Chanel themed baby shower with you today –

Isn’t Coco Chanel just a gorgeous theme for a baby shower – it works so well here.

Would you, or have you had/attended a baby or bridal shower? What was it like… would love to hear your thoughts?

Have a lovely day and I shall be back soon 🙂 xx

Harry Rocks

January 15, 2013

Morning all, how are you doing? Have you had snow where you are? I do love a bit of snow – and even better when it means you have to stay at home for the day!

Harry Rocks is a London based jewellery brand that make it their mission to create individual, fabulously unique pieces by hand using sterling silver, gold plate and semi precious stones. Perfect gift or treat for yourself. Harry Rocks also have great bridal collection – lovely stuff for the bride on the day, or even bridesmaids gifts.

I was very excited to receive my very own Harry Rocks gem last week – this Agnes Vintage Locket Bracelet shown below. I just love that each locket is a one off vintage find, hand sourced from antique markets on a pretty string of fresh water pearls and finished with their signature feather.

Your Harry Rocks delight arrives in this pretty little box tied with ribbon – who doesn’t love receiving something sparkly in a little tied box?!

Isn’t it pretty… I love it! You can see the full Harry Rocks collection on their website and they are also now stocked at Harvey Nichols.

Have a fab day and I shall be back soon 🙂 xx

Too Cute

Too Cute

January 14, 2013

Morning all, how was your weekend? Mine was good – too quick as usual though. I am still fighting this boring flu bug and tiredness, so feeling sorry for myself again this morning – all the more need for Too Cute then…

How ridiculously cute and fluffy is this Chow chow?! I want one!

Have a good morning and I shall be back soon 🙂 xx

Muuto

January 12, 2013

I recently came across Muuto and just love their designs – they hand-pick a variety of Scandinavian designers and together create some gorgeous designs in furniture, lighting and accessories.

They are “striving to expand the Scandinavian design tradition with new and original perspectives. In fact, our name Muuto, inspired by the Finnish word muutos, means new perspective.

You should definitely take a look at their collections, but I thought I would share my favourites with you today on the blog. I am starting with this beauty – the Nerd Chair designed David Geckeler. This one is pink, but it comes in lots of colours.

I think this Corky Carafe is also very cool, designed by Andreas Engesvik – I love the simple but elegant design. It can be used for wine, water, milk or any liquid you like really.

I love these Pendant Lamps too, they are designed by Mattias Stahlbom and again they come in lots of colours. I always think that some kind of statement lighting goes a long way in any room and I think this would definitely create a statement.

What do you think of Muuto? Too modern and quirky, or perfect for your home? I love their stuff and although my style is not really overly modern or quirky, I like to have the odd item like this thrown in to mix things up a bit!

Which is your favourite item above? I really like the pink Nerd Chair.

Have a fab day and I shall be back soon 🙂 xx
