So sad to come back to the news of Joan Rivers, and hope she pulls through.
I’ve mentioned Makers before, and if you haven’t already had a look its a great collection of women’s stories, which is being added to all the time. Joan Rivers makes an appearance too.
We’ve been winding right down to holiday mode around here, and are all so excited to be going to the US to explore the New England coast!
I’m planning to eat my body weight in lobster rolls and ice cream, and the girls are planning on riding every fairground ride and water slide they see!
There will be no posts here for a couple of weeks - hope you’re having a great summer XOX
Love this necklace for those days when, if like me, you’re not wearing either Converse or Havaianas :)
Find it here.
A sea of blood red ceramic poppies pouring out of the Tower of London by artist Paul Cummins to mark the centenary of the Great War. Beautiful.
How was your weekend? The school summer holidays are in full swing for us (hence the slightly sporadic updates!) and the weather has been great which makes everyone happy!
Have you heard about The Big House Company? They run and maintain a small, but amazing collection of large country houses, which can be rented out for house parties - think 20 odd people, with a games room, a pool and 10 acres to run wild in - but also group holidays, weddings and corporate events. They can help with all the arrangements too - sounds fabulous, don’t you think? :)
Possibly the most stylish way to accessorise your luggage. Find them at the ever gorgeous Liberty. :)
I hope you’re having a lovely week!
Here’s a quick and easy recipie to make for these hot summer lunches al fresco. I’m not a huge fan of ice cream but I love a good sorbet, and a frozen yoghurt (especially if made with creamy Greek yoghurt!) comes in a close 2nd.
I made a version of this with a bit of basil which adds an extra dimension of flavour to the peach - let me know what you think :)
I love a good DIY and this makeover is pretty good! I think those box like coolers work the best, but they are always so ugly :) take a look at the how to over on Aparment Therapy.
Have a lovely picnic filled weekend!
I’ve posted about Formentera before - there is so much about the Balearic Islands that I love and so much gorgeousness to share.
This is Bezo, a 2 bed detached villa in the Es Ram Eco Resort - doesn’t it look dreamy? Each room rate includes the hire of a little Fiat 500 to explore the island with :)
I’ve been a Chanel nail varnish fan for years, mainly because their varnishes apply so easily and I can give myself a quick pedi in 10 minutes, but then I tried Essie and am a total convert!
They have an amazing array of colours, and use a much thicker and wider brush - which while it takes a while to get used to it makes easy application - and the varnish, does. not. chip. And I don’t ever bother with a top coat.. :)
My current favourite colour is Fiji which is perfect for fresh, understated summer toes. Have you tried it?
