“About a year into the project, I realized I was taking the kind of photos of Paris that as a raging Francophile I wanted to see, but could never find. There are plenty of photos of the Eiffel Tower and sunsets over the Seine, but when I wasn’t in Paris I wanted to BE in Paris. On the streets, sitting at a café, peering into a cheese shop, admiring the cobblestones of Rue Montorgueil, seeing a charming sign for a €10 bouquet of tulips. I didn’t want the Versace-on-the-red-carpet version of Paris, I wanted the Converse and t-shirt Paris. The Paris you see when you step out of the shadows of the monuments.”
One year on – Congratulations to the Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge. Your first Wedding Anniversary is an exciting and special milestone. I hope they have spent the day together doing something special and spending time with each other.
There is nothing like a few new items in your makeup bag to make you feel like a new woman. Recently I discovered some new items I can’t believe I have been without for so long. For years I have been an avid fan of M.A.C cosmetics and I still am. Every day I use their bronzer, eyeliner and mascara.
My latest finds are from YSL and Bobbi Brown;
|YSL Touche Eclat|
YSL Volupte Sheer Candy
and their Volupte Sheer Candy lipgloss in No. 4 – Succulent Pomegranante. The gloss looks like a neon pink but it goes on so sheer and gives such a sheer layer of colour or you can layer it for a more intense colour if you prefer.

This morning I was out and about in the rain, wearing impractical wet weather shoes and wishing I had a pair of wellington boots. I have had my eye on the Hunter Wellington boots for a while as I think they are not only practical but look great. I especially like the gloss boots and on looking at their website just now I see they have adjustable boots which I love the idea of. So, I am going to get myself a pair. I have had a look on line and found Hunter boots here, here and here. Now to decide what colour to get.
Do any of you have a pair of Hunter boots and if so would you recommend them?
I am going to cook this on the weekend. It was cooked for me before and it was sensational. I am hoping I can make it just as delicious.
Our new couches need cushions and I would also like to have an ottoman made. I created this pin board to start the creative juices flowing about the look I’m trying to create. I had it in my head and I needed to get it on ‘paper’ to see how it would look. I’m happy with it so far. Now to start the hunt for fabric and fingers crossed it all comes together as I hope. I created this on Polyvore – Click here to see details
