Tuesday Blues - Pick Me Up

One look outside this morning and i felt miserable, only last week we were basking in glorious sunshine and a heatwave, fast forward to this week and it's all doom and gloom weather wise.

I wasn't going to let the weather get me down for long, so decided to cheer myself up by wearing something a little fun to work.

I think it's important to find that one thing that brings a little cheer to you at times when you feel down....for me dressing up/clothes usually does the trick.

Do you guys have any quirky 'pick me ups', things that usually bring a smile to your face in an instant when you feel down? do share in the comments, I'd love to hear them :)

Olympic Weekend

Olympic fever has landed with a great big thud and i couldn't be happier. Although i am not directly involved or going to see any games (wouldn't mind a free ticket though), i am still as excited as everyone and very proud of Britain.

I think the opening ceremony execution and production was amazing, Danny Boyle absolutely nailed it on all levels, oh and the queen!!!! her James Bond moment had me jumping and screaming at the TV in disbelief, happiness and just aaaaaw

Anyway, my weekend was pretty relaxing, lounged for most of Saturday, had a quick look around Zara in the afternoon, then headed to Westfield Stratford to watch the new Batman movie (AMAZING) in the night.

I was pleasantly surprised to find both the Jubilee line and Westfield shopping centre a human sardine free zone. I was expecting oodles of people and a ridiculous wait to board trains and get into the station, but there was none of that which was great.

I spotted a few people from competing teams and snapped a few pictures, not the best pictures but hey :)

Oh So Minty

I picked up this lovely Mint dress on an impromptu lunch time outing on Friday. Something simple and fresh to wear on a lovely summer day.

The sun decided to come out to play on Saturday which was a good opportunity to take this dress for a spin.

PS: for those interested it also comes in a lovely yellow shade :)

River Island AW12

Warehouse AW12

 Warehouse' Autumn winter collection is giving me FIRE right now, i love how fresh and well cut everything looks.  In love with the head to toe print look.

I am already starting to imagine what my wardrobe will look like later on in the year, but considering the weather we have been having lately in the UK, i can imagine these all for me right NOW.

Boconnoc House Cornwall

Boconnoc House has been rightfully described as the hidden gem of Cornwall. If not for the wedding i attended, i most probably wouldn't have heard of it and would have missed out on exploring such a beautiful place.

I love everything about it, the landscape, the obnoxiously expansive grounds, the animals, beautiful flowers, in summary, it ticked all the right boxes. At some point i even started envisioning myself as the lady of the manor :)

Rather than go on and on about just how beautiful Boconnoc House is, i will let the pictures do the talking.

Let me know what you think x
