The Staves

Been a fan of these girls for a while, but I can't seem to get them off my iPod at the moment. Their new album, Dead & Born & Grown, has been keeping me company on my commute to work and I urge you to listen if you haven't already! The gorgeous harmonies of the three sisters is just beautiful and often sends me off daydreaming... well who wants to remind themselves their being pushed around a packed northern line tube. Me either...

Style Paparazzi Thirty Five

Keeping warm has been on top of my agenda for the past few weeks, and this week I'm loving this gorgeous mustard colour knitted jacket. Paired with the navy and cute bobble hat, she's definitely cracked the warm but still stylish look!

What's inspiring you this week?

By Royal Appointment

A few weekends ago we popped into the Fashion and Textile museum to take a peek at the Hartnell To Amies exhibition. Once in there, we were transformed back in time with their collection of costumes worn by the royal family from royal designer Hardy Amies and Norman Hartnell. Another afternoon well spent...

Ooh Nan-Na.

Really love these cute illustrations from LA illustrator Nan Lawson, and the fact she loves to draw her favourite TV and movie characters including Star Wars, Mad Men and The Royal Tenebaums.  Now, I'm not a huge fan of Doctor Who, but I can definitely appreciate her doodle of Matt Smith!

New Start

It's been a while since I last blogged, and to be honest i've really missed it. That's why i've decided to make one of new year resolutions to keep it updated more often! I've also started to use Instagram properly so what better way to kick off my first post of the new year, than a quick roundup.

 - My cute little nephew enjoyed his first Christmas - Some festive treats in the form of these glittery macaroons - My mum surprised me with the rose gold Michael Kors watch - This sleepy ball of fur makes me miss home - There's nothing better than fresh sheets - Took the plunge and got a fringe! - Driving back to London - Wish I could have taken this little guy home with me - Started off the new year with prosecco - Visited the Hartnell to Amies exhibiton at the Fashion and Textile Museum - Some of Hardy Amies notebooks - Probably one of the best hot chocolates i've ever tasted - Boris Bikes - It was a polka dot day - First of the healthy dinners with butternut squash... yum - Getting square eyes whilst trying to finish the next issue of Cellardoor
