Recent buys

About a week ago I went to Kings Road in Chelsea and as I always do I go into pretty much any shop that catches my attention. So I got off from the bus at Chelsea Old Town Hall and I thought I would have a sneaky peek at Anthropologie's Mid-Season sale (the word "sale" played a big part on me going in) - what a mistake!! My boyfriend knew what was coming next, but I was saying to myself that there was no reason to think I would end up buying something, but of course I did.
This photos are the proof.
I already had the plate and the necklace on it from previous trips to the shop. James and I bought between us the two pretty coasters. I had been wanting the pink one (called Celestial Coaster, such a cool name) for sooooo long and it was on sale! Also the blue (the print on it meant to look like lace but it reminds me of fossils). The gold necklace was an impulsive last minute buy (and early birthday present from James). Couldn't resist having it as it is so similar to this Marc Jacobs one I have always liked but is much more pricey. Now I have my two statement necklaces for this season :)


Nine days off

I quite enjoyed my nine days off from work- I didn't do as much as I had planned (obviously!) but it was a nice break from wearing heels and I had happy feet!
I tried to draw something, went for a country walk in the rain (yay!), saw the Little Black Jacket exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery (and got two posters free! You can see how everyone is gathering at the same point in the picture, wasn't difficult to spot where the posters were) and took some photos of the outfit I was wearing one day cause I was quite pleased with the result and to keep record of the bun! Didn't last long though, after half an hour it was falling down and I had to re-do it on the train...I have to admit I'm very clumsy at doing anything with my hair apart from leaving it as it is, can't even make sure a messy bun stays in place!


Rescued photographs

San Sebastián's Cathedral

The other day I found these photos while browsing on the laptop my many, many folders full of pictures. They brought back to me memories of a past summer spent in Basque Country. Haven't spent another one since 2010... All these photographs were taken with a Diana F+ camera from Lomography.

Tonight is cocktails at another preview! But heavy rain all night :(


Molly and Robert's House

 This is Molly and Robert's house in Kansas City, Missouri; isn't it beautiful? They did all the decorating by themselves which is really impressive, as none of them is a interior designer (Molly is a personal wardrobe stylist and Robert is a painter). I leave you with a few pictures of their house and if you want to read the full article just go to Design*Sponge.

 One day I will have a velvet armchair!

 Can I have that lamp, please??

 I love the colour combination of this room

 I wish I had the space to do this!

You can find these beautiful towels in Anthropologie
