Sorry love, you’re getting a christmas jumper!

Oh how we all laughed together with Bridget back in 2001 when we saw Mark Darcy’s christmas jumper which he wore only to please his mother.

Who would have thought that only a decade later, christmas jumpers are going to be considered really trendy and super cute! I wear mine all winter…8))

Here is an awesome selection of vintage and handmade festive knits – still plenty of time to shop online!

Halloween is upon us

Halloween is the next big thing in social calendar – this is our chance to be silly, wicked and over-the-top before everything goes all White Christmas. If you like to dress up,  maybe you also like to decorate your home with everything and anything from spiderwebs and skulls to pumpkins and zombies. Some like it freaky, some like it funny and some just mix it all up. Etsy is the best place to find your inspiration and to buy one-off handmade bits to make your home special. What I found for you is so cool, you might just want to keep it hanging around for the rest of the year – and why not? Mwahahahahaha 8)

I want to live in Moonrise Kingdom

Its been a couple of months since I have seen this film but I think of it often because I loved it so much. Too long ago I have watched anything so sweet, funny, clever, touching and extremely well styled at the same time. This is a film which will make you remember your first teenage love, those long summers when you were little and it will also make you somehow believe in future. And it really made me want to produce that amazing shoulder bag/carrier so I could take my cat with me everywhere 8))

My own little Moonrise Kingdom in Norfolk

The recycled cottage

I discovered this precious little cottage in Cornwall in which 95% of everything is recycled. It was a cowshed only 10 years ago and what the owners did with it is truly inspiring! This gorgeous place in the middle of nowhere is just what stressed out Londoners need and we such had a lovely time.

The place is filled with antiques

I have never slept in an antique bed before

Many features are recycled from boats

Back when the travel was desperately romantic

This bathroom makes you feel like you are in a submarine!

All antique lamps are cleverly upcycled to electric ones

Lets go swimming

Swimsuits are back in the spotlight whether you like it or not. There is plenty to chose from in shops but if you fancy something different, there is always Etsy. Whether you prefer sporty, retro or monokini, there is something for everyone. Lets hope we will get enough sunshine to show them off!

Cover up//stay hip

My normal holiday wardrobe is usually made up from denim shorts, tank tops and little dresses. Therefore everytime I visit a predominantly muslim country,  I have to plan a little about what will I pack. In the more touristy places you can dress as normal (with exception of churches etc.) but it is nice to show respect. It wouldn’t feel right to cover up completely though, especially if you like the sunshine, but you can find relevant clothes which also look cool and hip. Maxi dresses, flowing skirts, pretty shawls and casual tops are just the thing.  If you are lucky enough to have a holiday planned, check out my selection below from Etsy for inspiration.
