hooked on a feeling

Forgive my lack of blogging, but I have been gallavanting across the channel to drink far too much wine and eat far too many pastries/cheeses/baguettes.. (can you really ever eat too many baguettes?)
Anyway, holiday related/picture heavy post is on it's way, but I had to post about the parcel on my doorstep when I returned home.




The Rainbow Club create gorgeous handmade ivory shoes, namely aimed at blushing brides rather than impoverished bloggers. However, they also offer a bespoke service which means you get these beauties dyed in just about any colour to match a dress, piece of jewellery or whatever takes your fancy. I am not about to make my way down any aisle (aside from Sainsburys) but was of course on board to choose a pair to test out when I was very kindly asked to do so.



I opted for the style 'Georgie Girl' because of the delicate lace detailing and, shock horror, in a timeless black shade which will conveniently match just about everything I own.
Firstly, how pretty?!
The shoes came wrapped so neatly in this beautiful cherub decorated packaging and I was hesitant in trying them on as they looked so content in the box. 
Once I did however, I was once again impressed by the detail, quality and comfort. I am contemplating how nice a spectrum of heels would look in my wardrobe.
I think my trusty wedges may have to take a back seat for a while.

Don't wanna be your girl

shoes - Dorothy Perkins
hat - Missguided
sunglasses - ebay

Life is currently consisting of meandering through life, soaking up sunny weather and wearing sunny-ish appropriate clothing.








Also took a brief excursion to London and I can safely say salted caramel macarons are potentially among the top three things I've ever eaten. That was strangely the only thing I purchased (shock horror) as the rest of the day was spent being a tourist.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer as much as I am :)

Bare wall in distress?

Being a lover of graphic design in it's many glorious forms, I am often scrolling through tumblr/threadless/etsy browsing through potential wall decorations for (hopefully) future homes.
Given a nudge in the right direction by a friend, I was introduced to the wonders of









From creating quirky wall art to gig posters for some of my favourite bands (lusting after that black keys print), the work of  husband and wife team Beth Manos Brickey and Mark Brickey is highly sought after.To check out their etsy store, click here.

The fact they're also based in California is giving me serious overall lifestyle envy.

Tough love

I have actually enjoyed summer dressing this year. Usually I prefer layering up for the winter, but, perhaps because I haven't needed a coat, I've found it a lot easier. May the sun shine in English skies for a little longer please.
Are you an S/S or A/W wardrobe favourer?

Nothing massively exciting, just keeping everything marginally simple and making the most of this sun!
I very rarely venture into Next, but being taken by my mother to the sale, was seduced by the monochrome snake print and purchased these for £10.
