As it is November and we’re all in need of a small boost I thought I’d show you some of the things that are helping to brighten my gloomy days.

IMG_1900.JPGNew shoes are always guaranteed to bring a smile to my face, this lovely pair from Zara were £39.99 and in my opinion are very Christmas party worthy.

IMG_1901.JPG Of course there had to be a perfume in this list and I adore this one by Dolce & Gabbana and if I smell like the beautiful Scarlet Johansson perhaps I’ll find a French man to marry!

IMG_1902.JPG This wedding favour sits with my perfumes and I see it everyday, it’s a lovely reminder of my best friends amazing day and a subtle hint to be like a strong lioness.

IMG_1903.JPG I love this chic little pencil case from H&M, I keep my essential pencils and pens in it for off-the-cuff drawing as its compact enough to fit in my handbag.

IMG_1904.JPG This small ceramic and gold trinket box is where I keep matches for lighting candles, it’s prettier to look at than a match box.

IMG_1905.JPG You may have seen this watch on my OOTD posts because I wear it every day. It’s by Anglo-Swedish partnership Larsson & Jennings and was a gift to myself at the end of a bad year, it’s a very beautiful watch and reminds me that independence is so important, even if you’re in a partnership.

IMG_1906.JPG I’ve had this wrist cuff for years, so long I can’t remember where I bought it. It’s only a costume piece but has a very transformative effect when paired with a simple grey tee or black dress.

IMG_1907.JPG This new tee from H&M is great with high waisted skinny jeans and I love the graphic logo encased in super shiny shimmery gold.

Colour Blocked

23 Oct

It is October. I adore autumn with its orange glow of falling leaves. Streetlights reflected yellow in the drops of rain forming puddles on the pavements. Cheeks rose pink in the colder air. The delicious chocolate coloured liquid of a warming coffee.

Floral prints seem garish and bright colours almost clash with the seasons natural hue. What on earth is a fashionista to do?

Think French.

I love experimenting and having fun with colours, sometimes I have my very own colour-blocking weeks in the office. No prints or patterns just bold against bright and I love it but, it doesn’t feel right for now.

I want to sit at the back of the bus in moody black and have all the other commuters avoid me. I want to sip my red wine in grey cashmere and talk about current affairs with a lover. I don’t want to hide behind a wall of somber tones, rather I want people to think me mysterious. I hear them whispering ‘Is she a poet?’ ‘No, perhaps an artist?’ ‘No no my friend, I think she may be French!’.
