Between the cake and the haggis

Après an indulgent weekend, its been looking like this in the studio

Breakfast al fresco and directing 'Mary Poppins' - singing with open windows while accompanied by birdies

All the while more 'Hopes, Dreams and Wishes' have been leaving in boxes

Happy weekend everyone xo


First comes birthday, then comes July

Did someone say birthday?
Oh I do love a weekend packed with blooms, macaroons and prosecco,
& a fun time was had at the Henley Royal Regatta

Our first week of July and we sailed through with wedding vibes, dalmation spots and more 'be happy' scribblers!

Hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine
Happy weekend!
Big love xo


Campsite and Press Prep

This week started with some campsite adventures in the portable dwelling - ahhh

The days have flown between meetings and preparing for the years Christmas Press event!
And I thought summer had only started?!

Ohh hey, it's Friday... And my birthdayy!!
Eeep pass the pink stuff pleeease



30 days sans coffee, 3 days sans rain

30 days and nights, and I'm still craving my coffee fix.

Marked summer solstice at supper, with a side of rain of course.

But nothing beats fresh blooms and pink vibes to dampen the cravings and mask the rain

Happy weekend xo



rain, rain go away

What a week.

Endless rain and endless deadlines.

But yay for lots of pretty new shoes from Clarks who have a magnificent sale.

Big love for a fabulous Friday - we're off to the pub xo


Sun, hen and wedding vibes

Oh my -
How glorious it felt to ditch last weeks' heavy knits and get the sun shades out!

The week started a little delicately (thanks to Saturday's hen at The Kedleston) - but what a fabulous evening!
Monday onwards has been bright; filled with lovely clients, gorgeous pugs and new accessories.

Looking forward to a perfect ending with another wedding out of town
Oh look - It's nearly the weekend

Pass the fizz xo


9 days, 15 hours sans coffee

No big deal.

So this week so far has been long, and tough, for many reasons but a week (or even a half week) sans my mega-milky-coffee-fix is particularly testy.

Is it the weekend? xo



Long days and late nights

It's been one of those weeks.

Deadlines and targets and lots of wine.

A gorgeous lunch at Hemsley and Hemsley (make sure you try the almond and green tea latte), lovely dinner at Granger and Co (try the shrimp burger) , meetings, work, more meetings, fabulous times with friends at the Hockley Arts Club (try the twister cocktail) and catching Laurence Fox at Bodega.

Is it Friday? yes - awesome.

*turns all alarms off.


Sunny May

Oh May.

Bringer of sunshine, peonies and parties.

You are marvellous.

Super long studio days filled with gorgeous light and ending with a rosé in the garden are very bearable.

Big love



When winter returned

It's been so cold this week that I have been having a bath as soon as I get home from the studio - not just for a lovely long relax but to get warm - what has happened to the weather?

I've kept warm by dreaming of tropical holidays and the aforementioned bath, not to mention we are super duper busy in the studio right now with lots of lovely wedding clients - so running around all day long keeps the mind of the chill.

I had a wonderful time in London too - catching up with retailers, meeting clients and partners - but always time for lovely food and coffee - this week courtesy of the Chiltern Firehouse and the Connaught - and they call this work #lovewhatyoudo.

Super happy Bank Holiday love xo


Tropical Brights

Last week in the studio loked a little like this - tropical brights for some of our favourite designs for PaperWrapCo. xo


Party! Party!

I threw a little party for my BFF and it looked a little something like this.

We used the lovely Portobello Derby for our catering and they were fabulous xo
