Old, New, Borrowed & Blue

Apr 30, 2011

Good morning!

Quick note, this post is going to be photo heavy. I tried to cut some out, but I just couldn't. So many beautiful beautiful images. So sorry (but not really because we get to look at all the lovely photos again :D)

Watching William & Kate's wedding kinda got me thinking about my own someday and I thought it would be neat to share the few ideas I came up with. These will very likely change many times over before I do walk down the aisle, but it's fun to search around :)

Going with the theme of something old, something new, something borrowed & something blue, this is what I came up with.

Beautiful old pearls from my grandma

Fabulous new shoes to wear :)
Borrow my mom's veil

And paint my nails a fabulous shade of blue! (For Audrey by China Glaze)

And just because I cannot stop admiring them, more beautiful images from the Royal Wedding :)

And did you see Kate & Pippa's dresses for the evening event?? Gorgeous!!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!


Once Upon A Time...

Apr 29, 2011

There was a girl.


Who married a prince.

And became a princess.

I just loved every minute of this beautiful royal wedding! Her dress by Sarah Burton & the House of Alexander McQueen was just lovely and the service was beautiful. The trees, the music, the flowers, the hats(!), everything was so so lovely!

I imagine beautiful lace & classic designs will definitely be very popular for weddings this year.

A beautiful fairytale wedding :)

And they lived happily ever after.


PS, I'm participating in the Royal Wedding Blog Crawl over at Breakfast at Toast. Be sure to check it out!!!

Design-by-Room: Chic Retreat

Apr 26, 2011

Good morning!

Today's bedroom inspiration is actually a room I put together for my mama! This is how I would design her room if she'd let me haha

Very pretty and soft with a a little glamour and luxury :) Purple is a colour I've always associated with my mom, so I knew I had to include that. And the safari rug is kinda fun when paired with the more classic pieces. Love the copper clad dresser from Anthro & the ceramic stool/table from West Elm. Very chic :)

Would just like to thank you all for the lovely comments this past week. I haven't had a chance to respond to any, but I do read and appreciate every one! My exams finish tomorrow evening and then I am done :D Very much looking forward to putting more time into my blog! And I have some exciting news in the coming weeks, so be sure to stay tuned for that :)

Hope you're all having a lovely week!!


Take A Walk

Apr 25, 2011

Let's go for a walk.

In the city.

With some fabulous shoes :)

Do some shopping.

 Go to a gallery.

And do some more shopping :)

Take a break when our feet are sore.

And when it gets dark,

find a fabulous restaurant for dinner.

Catch a theatre show down the street.

And head home, as the city falls to sleep.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
