fancy friday

Happy Friday, friends! Hope you’ve all had a good week, and are looking forward to a bit of R&R this weekend. I don’t know about you, but I’m relieved to get back to a bit of peace and normality after the shocking events earlier this week (see here). I very much hope that the amazing police officers on duty get some extremely well-deserved down-time after their incredible efforts. I’m happy to say that I officially have zero plans for the next two days, since the following five weekends go something like this: wedding, wedding, holiday, holiday, my mum’s 60th birthday. Phew! Looking forward to every single one, though. Especially the holiday part, I have to say… the South of France is calling!

I don’t know if you’ve heard about ‘The Notebook Doodles’ or not, but allow me to introduce you. If you’re a frequent pinner on Pinterest then you’ll often come across the likes of the stunning and inspirational quotes below. The photographs, the handwriting and often some of the quotes are all created by the blogger behind this site (who is something of an enigma… they reveal no personal details besides the fact they’re in their early 20s), and as well as the doodles that they release on their blog, they’re also available for commissions. Erm, how talented are they?! These thoughts are really succinct and motivating, and so beautifully presented. Take a look at the website when you get a sec, you’ll be hooked. When you have one of those weeks when you find it hard to stay focussed and keep your goal in mind, sometimes a rousing pick-me-up (the first quote in particular) is just what you we need:

For my look of the week it was a bit of a no-brainer – the award goes to Jordana Brewster (actress from the Fast & the Furious movies, went out with that Yankees player, aaand that’s all I got) who kills it with some of my favourite trends: mint (see here for past gushings), pleats (see here), shoes with scalloped edges (see here) and just her subtle and relaxed styling in general. I mean, she looked far better than Kruger at the InStyle Summer Soiree… this is serious stuff*. As for my room of the week, yes yes, I know I’m cheating, but this sunny outside space was so appealing I had to share it with you. That table is ridiculous. It makes me want to get all ‘Kirstie Allsopp’ with mosaicking.

*relatively speaking, obv.

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

    I love that terrace shot – Did you see the love pattern on the chairs, how cool are these? Btw Kirstie rules – she would definitely love that table!
