Fuschia Florals

'Life is beautiful' 

Flowers are the pinnacle of feel good gifts.
They never fail to bring a smile to my face and joy to my soul.
A bunch of flowers can say a thousand words.
They can say - love, happiness, romance, regret
friendship, sorrow, sympathy and congratulations.

Enjoy yor day!

French Style

I have spent many hours pouring over the pages of Vicky Archer's
 beautiful coffee table books on all things stylish and French. 
I love these extract from her book "My French Life' regarding French Style :-

"The French have the ability to mix the most random elements
 and make them appear natural.
Very few can duplicate it. 
It's unpredictable and often wish I could bottle it"

Beauty In Bloom

Beauty Secrets

 ~ There are no hard and fast rules with make-up ~
It's about fun, creativity and experimentation.

But make is not a mask. It is intended to enhance your eyes, lips and cheeks,
not conceal the real you!
Your make-up should reflect your personality.
It should be natural and subtle.

Mint Chocolate

Mint is one of the most delicious colours around, especially when combined with chocolate! Pastels against rich dark, velvety chocolate makes for a dramatic and striking combination. Exquisite as a decor accent colour, mint also works perfectly in the fashion arena. Mint looks heavenly in Louis Vuitton's spring collection made up into fitted, feminine suits with matching shoes and handbags .... so perfectly ladylike. I doubt if I would ever invest in a pastel coloured suit but I love mint for pashminas, lightweight Spring knits, summer dresses and of course. ... chocolate!

Cake Shop Heaven!




Peggy Porschen Cakes must be the prettiest cake shop and cupcake café in existence. Perfectly situated in elegant Belgravia, London, it stands apart from the crowd with it's stylish pink exterior Inside, it is a heavenly confection of freshly baked cupcakes, cookies and exquisite cakes made to order. I would just love to enroll in one of their cake decorating classes. I think a visit to the café for tea a red velvet cupcake would be my idea of perfect afternoon!

Ladylike Glamour

I am really enjoying all of this ladylike elegance that we are seeing on the catwalks and in the fashion magazines for Spring / Summer. It's so refreshing to see a return to stiletto heels, elegant fitted dresses and Grace Kelly style handbags. The sorbet palette is fresh and pretty in an array of pastel shades fit for a Laduree shop!

I am quite sure Grace would thoroughly approve of this season's elegant collections. She would look effortlessly stylish in any number of the chic outfits that we are seeing from Louis Vuitton, Dior and Oscar de la Renta.

A Night Of Indulgence


This morning, I am recovering from a night of indulgence. Last night there was too much champagne, too much good food and too much laughing. We had a lovely night out with friends celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, promotions and whatever else took our fancy! Everyone got dressed up and looked deliciously glamorous, the men look dapper and the ladies look stylish in sequins and sparkles. So today will be spent quietly recovering, nursing a headache! I hope you all have a great Sunday!
