London Bound

Hi girls! My last post on this blog was a love letter to Paris but another one of my favourite cities is London and I am taking a jaunt to The Capital tomorrow afternoon, I can't wait! I love that there's always so much to do of an evening and during the day you can usually find me skipping along Carnaby Street or in the dressing rooms of Topshop on Oxford Street.

I absolutely love browsing the various departments in Harrods and Ladurée is one of my very favourite places!

You may know that I have a love of carrying my memories with me on my charm bracelet and I love charms that represent special places. I went shopping over the weekend and found some gorgeous enamel London charms in Palenque.

This little treasure is £24.95 from the Palenque website

I hope you're all well girls, let me know some of your favourite places!

"We'll always have Paris"

Hi girls! I'm lucky to have journeyed to Paris a handful of times, sometimes with a case packed with a variety of dresses and heels, sometimes with a weekend bag but always with my favourite red lipstick lots of excitement to be visiting a city that holds many fond memories.

I definitely hold a romanticised view of Paris in my heart. To me it's the home of chic European women with immaculate makeup, fashion houses, dreamy perfume adverts and romantic getaways.

There's nowhere I'd rather jet off to for a city break. In the words of one of my favourite ladies Audrey Hepburn, 'Paris is always a good idea'.

I've added this Thomas Sabo charm to my wishlist so I can have my many happy memories of Paris dangling from my wrist! You can get this from Thomas Sabo for £15.95

Do you have anywhere that holds a special place in your heart?

An Evening in with Grace Kelly

I recently spend an evening curled up in front of Rear Window, one of my favourite Alfred Hitchcock films starring the beautiful, elegant and enchanting Grace Kelly.

I was brought up watching classic films and Grace Kelly has been one of my idols since I was a little girl!

I love old thrillers and I always enjoy looking out for the personal cameo Hitchcock put in to each of his films.

I would love to have been an icy cool 'Hitchcock Blonde'!

I hope you're all well and having a lovely evening!
