Bob Bob Ricard- Press for Champagne!


I have been so so so so... SO busy doing up the new house that I haven't a second to think. Luckily, Harry and I escaped to Bob Bob Ricard in London- and what a great way to escape! We went on a double date, to the gorgeous art deco style restaurant in Soho on Saturday night. BBR is most famous for their ingenious Press for Champagne button, which we definitely made use of. So decadent! I love their menu, its clean, fresh, and tasty. I ordered the lemon sole goujons for main and the milk ice cream and Amaretto for dessert. Harry however, ordered the BBR signature dessert, (below). A chocolate orb covered in lustering gold dust and filled with passionfruit, chocolate mousse. I think he was in L-O-V-E.

Duck Egg Guest Room

The renovations on the new house are going on as we speak! Its been a tough haul, lots of DIY and late nights, but I'm sure it will be worth it. We have some pretty cool new features that I can't wait to share with you guys.

The inspiration below is for the spare bedroom. Right now I'm not 100% sure we will keep it as a guest room permanently, but we will definitely have space for guests to sleep. I chose the Brusali bedroom suite from Ikea for all the furniture. I love the white clean look- matching furniture creates an upscale look. 

The most important thing I learned from this room, was to pick a boutique paint shop. The first time we attempted to paint a room a light blue color we chose one from the hardware shop and it turned out hideous. I always buy my paints from Laura Ashley now, so that even if I pick the wrong color it will still be a chic color! Also their pale duck egg paint and Josette wallpaper is my FAV.

Spring's First Blush

Happy Spring! 

All signs of spring are finally here! The sun is starting to shine, daffodils are in full bloom, cherry blossom trees are budding with flowers, but in typical British fashion the weather is still freezing!
I am definitely starting to get just a tad envious of all of the gorgeous American bloggers in their spring dresses and sunny days, while I'm over here with five coats on.  

Nothing reminds me of spring quite like blush pink, which is my favorite color for just about anything. I paired this gorgeous blush pencil dress, with a matching bag from asos, and nude heels. Patent nude heels are a style staple and help elongate your legs, (which is great for short girls like me)!

What are the first things you ladies pull out of your closet, when it hits spring!?

Champagne Bedroom Inspiration

In honor of finally getting keys to the new house, I'm posting my first decor inspiration!

With so much going on all the time I find it so much easier to keep track of my thoughts and ideas by creating these little inspiration boards and a co-ordinating Pinterest board (follow me here!). Best of all, I can organize the actual products that are going in the room, in addition to color schemes etc.

The inspiration for the Champagne bedroom came from our gorgeous bed, which I already have in our current room (pictures don't do it justice). In our current bedroom, Harry and I struggled to decide a color we both wanted for the walls. I always knew I wanted pale pink/blush bedding, so it was a struggle find a color that matched, but was "manly" enough for a shared bedroom, so we settled on a pale green. However, the paint we ended up painting was much bluer and I am not a fan! SO, having learned my lesson I knew I wanted to stick with a lighter, neutral, color scheme as they are timeless, elegant, lighter, and make a room look bigger. I can't wait until we can finally get all of the paint and furniture into the actual room and see how it goes from inspiration to REALITY!
