fancy friday

Happy Friday! I’m writing this from sunny Dorset by the sea… we’re staying in a beautiful cottage for the weekend for my mum’s *whisper* 60th birthday. She’s mortified that I’ve disclosed her age, but if you met her you would see that she doesn’t look anywhere near that. Daughter brownie points?! Anyway, we’re looking forward to scouring the (what I call) “bitty bit” shops for house trinkets, wandering around the harbour and enjoying lovely meals with family and friends, and a glass of bubbles or two. Do you have any exciting plans?

As promised, here are some snapshots from my holiday in the South of France. It was a blissful week and the area surrounding our villa was beyond stunning. We were nestled in the Pyrenees mountains, with views that didn’t even look real. The region has dozens of near perfect castles positioned on the peaks – it really was like going back in time. I may have come back several lbs heavier after a diet that consisted solely of bread, cheese and wine, but what’s a holiday without indulgence? And quaint little French markets. And napping. LOTS of napping.


My look of the week was a tough one seeing as NYFW dictated that A-listers were dressing up to the nines to perch daintily on the front row and look suitably bored. But ignoring the likes of Palermo et al, I’ve gone for Emily Blunt who looks devilishly good in Prada at the première for her upcoming film Your Sister’s Sister. It’s a very chic and simple look with muted colour blocking and minimal fuss in terms of accessories. As for my room of the week, I fell in love with the combination of red, white and blue… throw in some plantation shutters and a clawfoot bath and I’m a goner. And those cupboard doors are perfection:

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