London Guide

Feel very inspired by the Lo-Fi Guide to London from This is Naive. Even though I live in London now, Streatham is a bit of a no-man's land compared to all the lovely areas in this comprehensive guide. I miss living in central London and I also can't wait to move further out to Kingston, where I can go explore little shops by the river and have lunch at the Polish Cafe in the Antiques Centre.... two more months to go!

Bag? Shoes? Jewellery?

A friend staying recently asked if I was more of a bag-person or a shoe-person when it came to accessories... After some thought I answered neither- I'm a jewellery person! Which are you?
Here is a list of my some beautiful examples of each to help you decide (or maybe confuse you further?!).

Option 1:
(via TheLeatherStore)

(also available in brown)

Option 2:

(Pied a Terre - Hugo shoe)

Option 3:
(via st Kilda)

So what's it going to be?

and to stamp to those letters...

(via Royal Mail)

Beautiful Classic Album Cover stamps from the Royal Mail. My favourite is the New Order cover (main picture above), from their 'Power, Corruption & Lies' album. I love New Order AND pretty pink flowers!

Raise your hand if you like sending letters

Isn't it so exciting when you get a personal letter or postcard through the post. I love sending and receiving mail, and often make my own birthday and Christmas cards (especially now I have a wonderful Gocco machine).
It's always a good idea to have a stash of ready to send cards though, and wouldn't these 100 Book Jacket Postcards from Penguin make the most original collection!

real flower company bouquet!

As promised, here are some photos of the beautiful rose bouquet from the Real Flower Company that I received on Friday for our 2 1/2 years anniversary! I can't stop looking at them and especially SMELLING them because they smell di-vine. :)

A thing for...

Just wanted to share A Thing For..., a beautiful inspirational images blog where this moodboard comes from. I love the mood and colours (the roses look a bit like the perfect bouquet my darling gave me on friday for our anniversary, which I'll be sharing with you later).
