fancy friday

Friday is here and I’m looking forward to another wedding tomorrow! It seems like it’s quite the weekend for weddings… three years ago it was my brother’s wedding (happy anniversary Tim and Alex!), then this weekend sees the nuptials of Kate Moss and Prince Albert of Monaco. Separately, of course. Yesterday we saw the wedding of Abbey Clancy and the man-giant Peter Crouch – I thought she looked beautiful, albeit a little WAG-y with the red nails. So I’m Essex-bound today and praying that we keep this beautiful weather for Lucie and Jamie’s big day.

Now, I didn’t win the big money prize on Tuesday’s EuroMillions, but neither did anyone else it seems, since tonight’s jackpot is an unbelievable £136 mill. I mean, where would you even start with that kind of dough?? After my ‘objects of desire’ earlier on this week, I’ve been thinking on a slightly grander scale. Real estate. As well as interiors, I’m slightly obsessed with houses in general (Escape to the Country, Location Location Location, Fantasy Homes by the Sea – you name it, I watch it), so here are a few examples of the types of property I’d invest in if when my numbers come up. My choices include beach houses, New England style, colonial, French country estate… and there simply must be jaw-droppingly beautiful pool:

Tell me, dear readers… what would you spend your winnings on if you scooped the jackpot?

I settled on ex-MTV presenter Donna Air as my look of the week, wearing neon yellow Roksanda Ilincic Resort 2011 at the Serpentine Gallery’s Summer Party. Paired with the green peep-toe sandals, it’s such a fresh and summery look perfect for the event she’s attending, and is it just me or does this girl never seem to age?! For my room of the week, I picked this gorgeous kitchen since I’m a sucker for white subway tiles and white cupboards, and the antique rug works so well on the herringbone floor.

I hope you have a beautiful weekend whatever you’re doing and wherever you may be…

    ooohh… lovely! Love pic 4… or the summer house in pic 8 (or if it’s the big jackpot, the grand estate it sits within!!)
