This week's best of the street

Friday, 29 January 2010

I didn't find an awful lot on the street style blogs that really knocked my socks off, but I did fall head over heels for this girl's absolutely gorgeous coat. If anyone knows where to get it pleeeease let me know!

Hope you all have a fun weekend. We haven't got much planned. I'll just be packing for Nice, trying my best to finish my first knitting project and hopefully baking some more. Can't get enough of baking at the moment. Do you guys have any good recipes to share?

Cliché-free Valentine's Day cards

Thursday, 28 January 2010

I can't stop looking through Able and Game's Etsy shop. Their cards crack me up! And they have the best Valentine's cards ever. Not one cliché in sight! Hope the boyfriend doesn't read this post as he's going to be getting one of these...

I love her work, it's so feminine and glamorous (in quite an understated way). Many more images can be found here.

I feel like I need that hug cushion at the moment. Not having a great week but it's only six days until I head off to Nice with my mum for a girlie mini trip. I cannot wait!

The woman is so beautiful that she could wear a sack and still look amazing, but I absolutely love her style, especially the long, floaty, more bohemian looks she goes for.

Spanish-style home

Monday, 25 January 2010

Grey sky and drizzle today, yuck. I felt like I needed to post something bright and fresh and this Spanish-style home really fits the bill. It's so warm and inviting and I absolutely love their stained glass window. So very beautiful.

I absolutely love her ruched skirt}

I love it when you come across a photographer whose pictures make you want to step right into them and call them home.

Isn't that sink in the first picture amazing? It's huge! And I'm going to hunt online for that mug right now...

Update: Mug is by Emma Bridgewater

Why oh why...

... is the first thing I reach for when I've finished a run a huge slab of Victoria sponge?

Need to get out of this habit, but it tastes sooo good!

We were thinking of getting an inspiration board to put up over our desk, but I'm thinking that clipboards might be the way to go. They almost double as art.

What do you think? One big inspiration board or a collection of clipboards?

We are loving the new addition to our little kitchen.

No more need to walk up the hill to Nero's to get a decent cup of coffee, yay!

Coffee snug

Aren't these lovely?! What a nice way to keep your hands warm when drinking your Starbucks or mugs of tea

It is lovely waking up to a winter wonderland...

...but it's playing havoc with my routine

I haven't ran for weeks, keep craving suet puddings and big roast dinners and live in about five layers of jumpers, cardigans, my parka, at least two pairs of socks and my wellies

Still, it really is beautiful...
