Monday Mania

Monday, 28 October 2013

The Old Bake House, tonight in the early evening darkness that now envelopes us at 4.45pm.

Today has been the craziest day.
It began at 5.00am on the dot. Which is 6am on our body clocks as the clocks went back. A stupid weird thing we do in this country. Meadow was up and at them! Let's have breakfast Mummy! Except it was pitch black and we power!Yaaay!
(NB: I really need coffee the second I get up. I love mornings, but I NEED coffee)

No coffee. No warmth. No TV!!!

Then I rushed home from work to take M to her ballet lesson. Which was not on as it is half term. She had a major tantrum and threw herself on the (empty) studio floor. She thought we were late (which, to be fair, we usually are)

We left, and as I went to lift her in to her car seat, the car door slammed shut. My car locked.

AWESOME!! Woop wooop. no keys, no money, no phone.....
Thankfully a lovely stranger lent me her phone and Super Daddy was to the rescue! Except....the ROAD HAD BEEN CLOSED. I'm not even kidding you. I swear.

Anyway. We got home eventually.
I tell you, something strange is going on with the planets! (As well as our weather.)
That is my only explanation. I shall be glad to leave this Monday behind :)

Happy Tuesday to come friends xxx

Friday! Hello!

Friday, 25 October 2013

I. My new Maje shirt. I love love love it.
II. Usually I can take it or leave it, but the past few days, been crazy about chocolate! These chocolate coins are keeping me company at my desk. And yes, they are Meadow's but she is very generous with her mama.
III. Getting my bag packed for a fun weekend. We are off to a baby shower!

Sorry my posting has been late, I promise to try to do better!

Hope you all had a delightful week, and have exciting weekend plans. I am praying it stops raining. Damn you England. You suck.

PS Jamie Dornan as the Mr 50? Wowee he is smokin'. That's reason enough to go see it. Although my money was so on the Vampire Diaries dude (reckon he thought the movie too lame?) I was reading about how they replaced the original guy, Charlie someone and people get so crazy over 50! Criticizing the author like mad. I say, regardless of the writing, she has made millions! So surely, good for her?? That's my stance. Will you go see the film?
Have you guys seen Blue Jasmine yet? Cate Blanchett just KILLS it. Kills it. She is amazing. Now she deserves a medal :)

So. In our house we have approximately 5 cameras. Bad ass ones. And we have approximately 2 family photos. Yup.
Whilst shooting some friends kids for a birthday present, me and Meadow tagged along to get some shots of us. And I remember why shooting weddings is sooooo much easier. Family portraits are a killer. Meadow sabotaged most of them by doing weird things like bending over. Sigh.
Anyways! We got a few! Check out Rich's grumpy ol' face! Haha!

Meadow has been making me laugh all weekend long. We had a girls day at the cinema, and we got there (uncharacteristically) early. While the trailers were running, I turned to M and said "eugh. I hate being early to the cinema." She looked at me, sighed, and said "I hate being chased"
So random and so funny!

Last night, dancing around to Daft Punk in the kitchen, she was watching me, arms folded. She smiled and said "mummy, you are Amazin'. You should get a medal for that dancing"

Bless her little tiny heart. I love that girl. It's the small things that make me happy. (although I'd say yay to a Goyard tote) And it's those I am choosing to focus on! What is making you happy this week?

Happy Monday!!! xoxo

Wednesday Wonder

Wednesday, 16 October 2013

So in response to the many kind newest skincare favourites! From l-r

I. Estee Lauder BB Cream in neutral.
II. Erborian CC Cream which I am loving soooo much and was responsible for my Paris glow through illness and tiredness!!
III. Origins night-a-mins recommended by my friend Hazel (helllooo)
IV. Aveda repair masque. I love Aveda everything really. Is it worth the money? I'm not sure of that but I love the smell!

My new favourite kicks from Nike that I am copying from all the chic Paris girls.

Sunlight peeping through the trees in the early evening, sooo nice to get warmth on your face in October!

My new Massimo Dutti scarf. COZY!

What autumn buys are you loving?


Paris Part Deux

Sunday, 13 October 2013

 Oh Paris!
Weirdly I have met two different people who are originally from Paris this week, and both say they hate it. Both choose to live and work in London instead and say they hate the city, and how much it has changed. I suppose as tourists, you see what you want to see, and certainly this trip, we saw more of the fairly seedy, dangerous vibe that Paris carries. It is boring now, being followed around le Gare with moroccans trailing you trying to steal your purse.

But also Paris has such vibrance and a chicness that I have never experienced anywhere else! The french can put an outfit together like nobody else can. I just love sitting drinking carrot juice (that should be coffee but me and Tash seemed to drink gallons of carrot juice) or even better champagne, and watching all the chicness around me. Trying desperately to absorb it :)

Sorry my blogging has been non existent. I have been so sick, and also work has been in overdrive. I've not carried my camera around much. I wish I had taken it on my stay here, a beautiful country pad in deepest Dorset. I was upstairs in the attic and it was hands down the creepiest night EVER. It was stunning but so historical and I slept for about 4 hours and the light was on. I HATE sleeping with lights on, but this place terrified me!!! OMG.

Anyway, I'm off to bed armed with cough syrup (yuck) hot tea, and hoping to sleep!

Catch up with you all this week (and I am still reading your blogs everyone, just not commenting as my bloglovin is useless)

Paris I Love You

Thursday, 10 October 2013

I am back!
I missed you!
I'm still sick!
So it's a brief visit, to share a few Paris photos and say it was fabulous and oh, Paris I love you.

There is so much to see and do and it exhausted me. Where to begin? APC and it's beautiful clothes, the flea market in the North, the super chic Paris girls dressed in black with neon trainers. The list goes on.

More later this week and pics of my purchases xoxox

Two days

Tuesday, 1 October 2013

Two days 'till PARIS!
I am so excited I literally cannot sleep. Actually that may be my hacking cough that WILL NOT GO. Seriously, who deserves a cough for 3 weeks? Grrrrrr.
Anyway. I am powering on through and dreaming of delicious coffee and croissants galore, people watching and flea marketing.
I will, of course be accompanied by my little mulberry satchel (I love him so) and my newest purchase...this, my YSL muse two (an eBay purchase)

Any handbag favourites this season? I'm crazy about this one but I think at nearly £5K I will be waiting a while. Still a girl can dream (that is if she can ever get to god damn sleep :)

Happy Tuesday lovely ladies!


PS Meadow's latest :
Me-Meadow do you want some tea?
No thank you Mother, I shall be fine with a small snack.

PPS Yes, my dress is see through. That is what is fantastic about having a blog. You can relive mistakes! Huzzah!
