Danish apartment

I can't understand a word of Danish and even after translating it with Google I didnt get much sense of the story of this wonderful apartment but I couldn't not post it. That bar cart caught my eye on Pinterest, and I had to know what the rest looked like and it didn't disappoint. The plates on the blue wall have me fascinated, they are a mix of different eras and most come from the Royal Copenhagen, just like the porcelain figures on the lovely and sun filled mantel.

Wedding Wednesday: a garden wedding by marlett.es

This lovely garden wedding was created by Marlett, was inspired by the love the couple have for adventures and travelling. Throughout the garden, several areas were created using furniture and other bits and bobs the couple and their family had and it looks amazing! Who wouldn't want their wedding to feel as fun and chilled but also so beautiful as this one? I love the work created by Marlett, always has an incredible vintage effect and looks seamlessly stunning.

Shop Talk: Holamama Shop

Today I'm happy introduce Holamama Shop, one of my fab sponsors! Paula, the owner of the shop has a great blog and when she opened her store for crafty lovers I was super excited! She carries lovely stuff, including some lovely stamps, wrapping paper, masking tape and very handy tools to create everything you want. YOU HAVE to check it out! Paula ships to the UK too!




They carry the cutest wrapping paper, tags and lovely Christmas details to make your cards and gifts the nicest ever!


They also carry my favourite straws, I love the stripped ones but adore adore the ones with the blue polka dots! And the baker's twine comes in an array of lovely colors to pick from.

A Little Palace in Barcelona

Barcelona is well known for its beautiful architecture. It has some amazing buildings and is famed for being the birth place of architectural modernism. Still today there are beautifully conserved buildings like La Pedrera, Casa Batllo and many less known ones like this stunning little palace re-baptised as El Palauet (which means little palace in Catalan). It has been transformed to be a lovely 2 bedroom apartment hotel and also an events venue. The contrast of the old features and the modern all white furniture is formidable. Incredible location too and even though its pricey I think it would be a great base for a group of friends visiting the city (bachelorette party anyone?)

Are you a London blogger or live in London and love blogs?

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone across the pond!! 
Well the title is a bit of a mystery, isn't it? What is all this about? Well, the super fab, fun and lovely Lauren from Aspiring Kennedy and I are trying to organise a London Bloggers (and not) meet up/event! I know! Exciting? Are you excited London peeps? I know there are a few of you so don't be shy. Lauren and I are trying to find a super cool venue and we would love to see if you (yes YOU!) would like to join us for an afternoon/evening of fun with a bunch of fab bloggers? 
Update: We called it "London..." but anyone is invited no matter where you live or where you blog from!



Yes, we even created a little fun banner (that you can use if you want, scroll down for various sizes!) 
The idea is to host it in a super cool venue in London on Monday, December 12th. As we both blog about a bit of everything, we would love to have bloggers from all niches (design, fashion, foodies, weddings, everyone from everywhere is welcome!)
Can you come? Please let us know if you would be interested by filling this little doc below, it would mean the world to both of us! 





Here are some more sizes, please drop me an email if you need a different size or coding to embed it.

Thank you so much! We can't wait to meet you!!

Sunday Outfit

Hello lovelies! I just realised this week that has just ended has been a rather busy one, with a bit of Barcelona, seeing old friends, work team building events, Twilight (what did you think?) and friends over, it was a bit of a whirlwind for me usually used to quieter ones so I'm looking forward to a down week. Also I noticed that this is the 2nd almost all black outfit, winter is definitely upon us and it seems I tend to reflect it in my clothes too, next week I'll definitely add some more color! Have a great one!

On a different note, I went to watch Breaking Dawn, thoughts? I loved it, mainly because I love the book but yes I get the point that nothing really happens. She looked lovely in her Carolina Herrera wedding gown, don't you think? Are you Team Edward or Team Jacob?
