Blazing in a blazer…

One of my favourite trends to come out of 2011 was the re-emergence of the blazer. I jumped right on board with this trend and dug my ‘interview’ blazer right out of the back of my wardrobe to pair with ripped jeans, vintage t-shirts and my trusty converse. Looking through Pinterest over the weekend, I spotted an evolution of this trend – the coloured blazer! Guess what I will be shopping for when the weather finally warms up a bit?! I’ll leave you with a bit of summery blazer inspiration!

Merry Christmas to all! I’ve got the week off work and I intend to do very little and be in front of a computer screen as little as possible, so my posting might be a bit sporadic!


Surprise me if you can!

It’s round about this time of year that I start pining for the sun and short sleeved shirts. Because I am a sucker for punishment, I spent the whole of yesterday evening going through photos of me in hot, sunny destinations! I came across some pics of us in the Caribbean which got me thinking about one of the only times in my life I was surprised…

Since I am bossy, strong willed and a woman, I tend to make the decisions around the house, particularly where we go on holiday. My guy is laid back and tends to go with the flow so this arrangement works well (mostly). But for my birthday a few years ago, he decided to take control and surprise me with an exotic holiday. For the first time in my life, I had no idea where we were going, what to pack, or how much it cost. It felt amazing to relinquish the control and let someone else worry about the logistics for once. We ended up having one of the best holidays of my life! Do you like surprises? What is the best surprise you ever had?

I have been sitting here for the better part of an hour trying to think of something to say to introduce these beautiful ornate doorknobs…. but what can one really say about a doorknob? I mean they are a pretty necessary part of everyday life and opening doors without them could make for a frustrating and potentially embarrassing experience. It is for this reason that I get really irritated to see hideous plasticy B&Q goodies stuck on doors without any real thought or care (we have them here in our little house in London, so doors stay open so that I don’t have to see them too often). And now this post has turned into a rant, so I’ll leave you with some doorknob eye candy instead!
