a little bit of life lately!

Call me fickle if you will, but I feel like Spring is totally my favourite season right now.  I mean, blossom, bunnies, and breaking out the ankles just can’t be beat, am I right?

Added to this are those first glimmers of sunshine with actual heat behind them.  I’d forgotten it was possible, particularly on this damp little island we call home.  And Easter holidays are within touching distance too!  So ready for those slow mornings with no real plans.

With all that positivity and promise in mind, five things this week, and a little catch up too!



1. Bar Cart love…

We got it, we installed it, and I haven’t stopped looking at it since!  We ended up going for this one, and it’s every bit as pretty as I’d hoped.  I have a bar cart tour and an insane gin recipe coming very soon for you too!





2. #CoasterBoaster!

I showed these beautiful coasters over on Instastories during the week, but I feel like they’re worth another mention because their prettiness is unrivalled.  Ceramic and yet with that gold metallic edge that I can’t get enough of at the moment.  They make me smile every time I look at them (I’m easily pleased guys, never let it be said otherwise! 😉 )





3. Spring Bakes…

Eva is a real Mary Berry in the making, and has been spending most weekend down-time creating new delicacies for us to try (unfortunately for my waistline they are all so delicious!)  She made and decorated this gorgeous sponge (using this recipe, from the guru herself!) just the other weekend, and the most gorgeous chocolate orange cake for Mother’s Day, from her own recipe.  I’ll share it with you when she has time to make another!





4. Dungarees

I’ve had these guys for a while, but fell back in love with them again after I saw them on my Instapal Cara (such a stylish lady!)  I feel like it took me a long time to find a pair that I really got on with, and also to find a way to wear them that really fitted with my vibe.  I’ve been loving them with floaty blouses or Breton tops and these loafers (which, FYI, I’m just utterly obsessed with and have surgically attached to my feet.)  or these pretty mules.  French girl chic and so comfy to boot!

PS.  Check out Noah in an actual, real-life picture! I love him. 🙂




5.  Spring Outdoors

This beautifully mild weather lately has been coaxing us outdoors more than usual, and even persuading us out of our coats on occasion too.  It makes me excited for warm May and June days and plenty of Summer adventures!





And finishing off with a picture from Mother’s Day this year.  I wrote a piece about it over on Instagram last Sunday (you can read it here!)  I hope you all had a wonderful day with loved ones.




Happy Weekend everyone!

    I love that Mothers Day photo – you all look so elegant and timeless – like something from little House on the Prairie! LOVE your dungarees and the bar cart is a gorgeous idea x

    What a lovely round-up! I’m so excited that finally we are seeing some signs of Spring. Your bar cart is looking amazing and I love the way you have been styling the dungaree. Hope you’re having a great weekend xx
