Nasty Gal

June 30, 2011

I recently found this site via a recommendation on Twitter or another blog but I cannot remember who it was… anyway I bookmarked it to look at later and WOW.

It is RAD! (as my girl Sofi Donuts would say) In fact I have just checked Sofi’s blog and she uses pieces from here A LOT! Not surprised, it is very her.

I want so much from there.

Cool pieces for my travels as well as pretty things I can wear for a date or to work.

Love it!

The Blue Hour is another blog I love to get updates from.

Brian is a photographer and I adore the feel and look of his photos.

Here are some of a Hackney cafe he loves (and I so want to visit!)

See the full post and details about the cafe at The Blue Hour

I think this bag is beautiful…

I would wear it with an ultra girlie outfit, a summer dress and sandles to rock it out a bit.

Amazing

A Rainbow Bank

June 24, 2011

I WISH this was my bank, it’s so pretty.

Spotted at Design Boom built by Japanese firm Emmanuelle Moureaux Architecture and Design

Even the inside is beautiful and the rainbow continues.

And at night, the rainbow glows!

You know how much I love a rainbow. So cute! You can read more here

Swoon over more Japanese design yet again!

Net a Porter Bridal

June 23, 2011

I have looked at a LOT of wedding magazine and blogs, and there are a TON of horrible wedding dresses out there.

But there are more beautiful ones… I have already picked my dress, and it is not a big designer. It is made by an independent dress-maker and I cannot wait to meet it!

But here are just some of the beauties I liked on Net a Porter because we can all swoon over wedding gowns!

Lela Rose, I love this designer I’ve seen so many dresses I love.

Jason Wu, the King of froth, my Fave!

Valentino, classic styles.

With beautiful attention to detail.

Rachel Gilbert, another Bridal designer I adore, look at those tiers!

 Max Azria, simple dresses perfect for a beach ceremony

 

Miu Miu, cute and fun for the young bride!

 

Rick Owens, I love this it’s so gorgeous! I want it for a summer dress.

Another simple classic dress.

Giambattista Valli, more froth. I love this.

Lanvin, do I need to say any more? Dream dresses.

I WANT this! Perfect cover up for my honeymoon.

Swoon!

We are failing at hitting our target of a date night a week, mainly because we are so busy with the wedding and sorting Supper Clubs… but we are not forcing it, just going out when we can.

A recent date was a trip to Colston Hall to listen to some classical music. I had won some tickets to a concert so we got dressed up and had a FREE date night!

I love the new Colston Hall building, this is the terrace.

Not the best views I admit, but it’s a nice place to get some air during the interval.

This is the foyer, it’s a big trek from the bottom to the top (where we were sitting) but it’s a beautiful space and I like climbing stairs in my heels.

I am really getting into classical music… it does lull me into sleepiness though, I think the violins are hypnotic.

Afterwards we went to Bordeaux Quay (our fave!) for a glass of wine.

What a grown up date!

Colston Hall has a great programme of events, get it out here and the bhuilding is lovely, a big mix of old and new… and the outside is coated in gold, what more could you want to make you feel fancy.
