Swoon Round Up

July 19, 2013

It has been an insanely busy week, I had one night at home and that was on Monday…

Tonight me and my Mr are shopping for the last couple of big baby purchases and going for an alfresco dinner, then tomorrow I am very excited about a big BBQ at a friend’s house in the country and Sunday I am off for a few days of relaxation at Ragdale Hall for lots of pool time and a mama massage…

A quick round-up of some things I have seen recently that have to be shared!

In this weather I am dying of jealously over these amazing swimming pools


I am LUSTing over this ring… like seriously.


I still can’t stop watching this Rihanna video, I do love her, you may not… but this video is raw and beautiful.

I love this little marriage tip… it’s a good one, we don’t tend to argue very often but whenever we do I make sure to say this afterwards… in an argument that might be about something trivial this would definitely work.

These shoes by Sophie Webster are super cute, probably wouldn’t work for me right now but what a perfect Summer wedding shoe!


An amazing movie with elderly couples talking about their wedding song… this totally make me tear up.

Let the Good Stuff stick – great advice from Oh Joy about remembering the good things that happen, not the bad.

 A real-life love at first sight story. Amazing.

THIS cake… my god Smitten Kitchen rules.

Successful people get up early… something I always have trouble with. This made me think I should change my morning lie in for a least having a coffee with the news instead, and possible even a workout!

Love the above sentiment… seen here

I am obsessed with this ring and must make it mine… maybe a treat for Valentines just for me

You GOTTA watch this short film by Disney, its too lovely

I am building my bar and cocktail accessories collections, these fun coasters would complete it

I am so in love with this dress, I can totally dreeam on though. I would wear it with black mary janes and an alice band.


Today we start a new month, I for one am so excited about the mornings and evenings getting longer and starting to be light…

This weekend I will be tidying and spring cleaning and making lots of healthy food, very boring but necessary.

I am having lunch with my Mama tomorrow, after not seeing her for so long (stupid snow) we are planning her birthday party and a trip to Paris!!

I love these necklaces, I want a little S. In fact her whole range is amaze!

This site is my go-to on my coffee break… this giff had me and a friend in tears yesterday (afternoon hysteria)

I am going to bulk order some Fresh lipbalms, there is no mail order in the UK, but if you email their London store they will send you your order! I also want the new face masks and some perfume. Love their stuff.

I have been drooling over lots of hotels on Tablet, dreaming of a summer get-away

I really want to make this, I have a real thing for peanut butter at the moment.

Coveting some of these PJ’s they are super bright and remind me of summer!

Stocking up on some more Lahloo Tea’s on a trip to their Pantry last night, I cannot recommend them highly enough

I so want to wear these red lips on a night out soon!

A favourite new Etsy stationary find

I know its still November but I just cannot help it…

I know I have mentioned Christmas a lot this week and one thing you do need to get organised as soon as possible is Christmas cards… so people can adorn their house!

Do you still send/give Christmas cards?

I know lots of people don’t but I just love to do it, I am still hoping I’ll find the time to make my own again this year as I have a great idea… but if I do buy some then here are my favourites… from Etsy of course.

I am a sucker for letterpress…
