so very pretty

L'Wren Scott. What a surprise.

dream hair

Must cut horrid long hair. Tiny boy means I've not been in 8 months. Now I need blonding, cutting and straightening. Seems a faraway dream. But I must must do it. I look 45.

string boy


I love so much from Uniqlo. It's my saviour. I imagine this with a black vest, black slouchy trousers and some leather sandals. Wishing for springtime. But trying not to wish away the days.

blue eyes

Lanvin H+M

Delightful. It passed me by as I was 9 months pregnant when it hit the stores, so I am late in expressing my enthusiasm.

yes, please, one of each

Satomi Kawakita

Helmut Smits

Saltwater Sandals

Wiksten's Saltwater Sandals make me giddy. They are the type of sandals I'd have coveted as a child. And once I owned them, turned the light on in the night to make sure they were still there. I need some, but I can't decide on the colour. Tan? Navy? maybe white? and Mama Bear makes lime look so fetching.


Topshop, oh yes please.

oh miss gisele, you look lovely

Until this very moment I've never had feelings for you Gisele, I confess. But right here you are just divine. Sweet as sugar.

I can't remember where I found these pictures- it was months ago. I was pregnant and imagining perfect houses to raise a family. I saved these images and it stands, this house is dreamy and I'd happily pack my case and move in tomorrow.

oh Lanvin, I love you

oops, lucky baby

And I was powerless to resist this sweet sleeping bag and these glow in the dark wall stickers that say 'bonne nuit' with the filament of the light globe. Cute cute cute. Both from PetitHome.

and speaking of Sanna Annukka

I just bought this- for the baby's room. Absolutely lovely. And really only an excuse for me to have it for ... ME. And somehow it reminds me of these dinner plates that I grew up with. Dinner plates that I'd LOVE to have some of again. I look in charity shops and car boot sales- but thus far I haven't come across one..

You are too talented. Via Nineteenseventythree

Brooks Bicycle Seats

So gorgeous. Unbelievable.

St Ives made me think a lot about watercolours. I want to like them, but I don't. But there are exceptions, though not I found in St Ives- rather further afield, like this foxy by Diana Sudyka via Design is Mine.

happy saturday

Via GirlHula's flickr. Excited for the possibilities of Saturday despite the weather being officially poo. Grey poo.

Oh for endless funds

Brook Farm General Store

OOh Lulu and Nat

Dear Baby,
I have found some lovely things for your nursery.
Now if only I knew if you were a girl or a boy, I could make some purchases from here.
This patience business is tiring.
The Mum.
