Snow is falling

Now it's finally December I can start to get excited about the prospect of Christmas. I hate to start celebrating too early so I like to keep any festive until after the first of December! So now the first door on my advent calendar has been opened and Mariah Carey's All I want for Christmas has been added to my Spotify playlist I thought I'd share this cute video I found. I know it's an advert for Starbucks, but those cute snowflake kites are just too cute not to share!

Shoes Shoes Shoes

I recently came across the talented illustrator Laura Manfre and instantly fell in love - aren't these just the cutest! The glittery Miu Miu's have been on my wishlist for a while, so these will just have to suffice for now.

You don't know how lucky you are

This is one truly talented guy. Not content on just being a flipping amazing illustrator Keaton Henson also has a haunting voice that he puts to good use on his spine tingling tracks. Can we be friends please?

Some like it Hot

I'm in love with this editorial from Vogue of Michelle Williams as Marilyn. She's stunning!

Back to the Nineties!

As a kid I probably watched a little too much tv.. I was completely obsessed with so many shows! So I was very happy when Asos Magazine reminded me of some of my favourites... Sister Sister, Eerie Indiana, Boy Meets World and Blossom!

Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush

So Mulberry is celebrating it's 40th birthday and true Mulberry style they've released this gorgeous book to celebrate. The book itself is a work of art, filled with hundreds of beautiful never before seen photos. I NEED to get my hands on one. If i can't have a bag, I guess the book will suffice for now...

Style Paparazzi Nineteen

A slightly smarter street style inspiration post from me this week, I started my new job last week so I guess office fashion is starting to wear off on me. 

I love the navy trousers, far more chic than a black pair and they go perfectly with the beige wedges - not to mention that beautiful sheer shirt! Also after seeing this girl, I'm craving a hair cut and dreaming of a 'lob' again

Hermes please

There's a few unfair things in this world... always running out of ketchup just when you're desperate to dunk your chips, your numbers never coming up in the Euromillions draw and probably never being able to purchase that coveted designer item. 

The latter being made even more impossible when designers produce custom made pieces causing me to lust over, and not having a hope in hell of ever being able to own said items.

So just to add further insult, I came across these little babies. Robert Verdi asked Vans to create these custom slip on from some of his favourite Hermes scarves - not an official collaboration sadly. The results are stunning though, just look at those opulent patterns and vivid colours. I need a pair!

Burning House Project

What would you save if your house was on fire? It's a question that's often very hard to answer, but that's exactly what Foster Harrington has set out to find out in his Burning House project. The images caught my eye a while ago, and I've had them saved in my bookmarks ever since. I really love the idea behind them, and some of the outcomes are stunning.  

I think I'd have to save my huge library of magazines and my beloved Mac. Materialistic.. who me?

What would you take with you?

Style Paparazzi Eighteen

Now I'm back to regular blogging, it was about time for another style inspiration post. I've chosen the girl below as I fell in love with her mustard top, it's such a lovely colour. We seem to have skipped straight to Autumn what with all the horrible rain we've had, so I'm on the lookout for something that I can wear to cheer me up. I love how she's paired it with some simple skinny jeans and tan accessories. Always a winner. Oh and not to mention the floppy hat... it needs no words.

Weather for ducks

Wow, I've not signed into blogger for ages- wasn't expecting all this change! I guess that will teach me for neglecting my blog, consider me warned. 
I've been so busy with work the past month, that the blog hasn't been a very big priority. However, all the hard work has finally paid off and I start a new job in a matter of weeks. I'm so excited... after nearly two years of interning some one has finally given me a real job! I don't want to mention too much on here as I don't want to jinx anything, but it's pretty much my dream job!
Along with the new job, I'm moving in with one of my best friends. I can't wait to start decorating my new room - even if it is the size of a matchbox ha! We've already been out scouring the charity shops and car boot sales, and my mum has even bought be a lovely vintage looking lamp. I'll leave you with some of my recent bedroom inspiration images... and a promise to be a better blogger!

Style Paparazzi Seventeen

I absolutely adore this girls trousers. I'm not sure what colour you'd call it... orange, rust, mustard?.. but I love them! I'm also loving the masculine trend that the likes of Ms Chung seem to pull off so well. As this girl proves, all it takes is a crsip white shirt work with a cute little bow worn at the neck. Sorted.

Style Idle

So I've been a busy little bee recently helping out the lovely Gem with her university project and just wanted to share it with you. She was looking for someone to help with the creative layout of the book, and as she was already a fan of Cellardoor's design I was only too happy to offer my services ha. I was pretty excited to get involved as I'm a huge fan of her Tuesday tips, and her project was a whole book full of them! 

Here are some sneak peeks of some of the pages and let me know what you think...

Going for the Chop

I've been toying with the idea of cutting all my hair off for a while. The lure of the chop always seems to rear it's head towards the summer months, but it takes so long to grow I always end up changing my mind. However I'm feeling a little bit braver and after a lot of hair inspiration I'm loving the 'Lob'. What the hell.. you may be crying, but the lob is just short for a 'Long Bob'... see what they did there.

I first saw it on Jen Aniston and loved how simply it transformed her look and perfectly frames her face. Here's a few others I'll be taking with me to the hairdressers.

Flower Girls

I absolutely love this issue of ELLE Denmark, and just couldn't resist the dreamy editorial inside. Now only if I could read a word of it

Style Paparazzi Sixteen

Wow, it's been a busy few weeks. I've just caught up with what day of the week it is after all the lovely bank holiday weekends, as well as my birthday (and the that wedding!) not to mention getting the latest issue of Cellardoor released... so hopefully all blog related duties will be running as normal from now on - I know you've missed me!

So back to the task in hand... this weeks street style posts, and I have to say one of the happiest outfits I've seen in a while. The clash of the bright yellow and orange together (reminds me a lot of Jil Sander) can't help but put a smile on my face... not to mention those pleats! I've been after a pleated skirt for a while, still not sure whether I can pull of a midi though.

A rather royal birthday

So the day is finally here, Wills and Kate are getting hitched. I am slightly miffed as they have chosen my birthday but hey at least I get a day off! My friends are throwing me a BBQ so I will be trying my best to forget about the Royal Wedding, although it's pretty hard to get away from it in London. However, the streets do look prettywith all the union jack flags... have you noticed them hanging? So I'll be enjoying an extra long weekend, I just hope the weather stays nice. How are you planning on celebrating?

Summer Breeze

Happy easter!  I hope you're all enjoying the stunning weather we're having in you're currently in the UK. I spent the day here yesterday, I love the views from Hampstead Heath and Kenwood House is so beautiful. I can't believe it's still only April... feels a lot more like July!  Hey, I'm definitely not complaining! 
My long weekend has consisted of sunbathing, eating lots of chocolate and evening spent watching SATC sipping mango bellini's. I don't want to go back to work!

Style Paparazzi Fifteen

this weeks inspiration comes all the way from Coachella. I wished I had have been there. Great weather, great music and some very stylish. Perfect.  I've been after a maxi dress for ages now, and I think that this girls one might just have to the be the one. I love the subtle print and the colour would look great with a tan... albeit a fake one!
