18 Notes
  • This post is exquisite – you’ve outdone yourself.


  • Love this post…some real eye candy! :) x

  • This post really exemplifies just about everything that I love. The soft pink and white pillows are the perfect touch to such a lovely, pretty, and cozy room. The macarons & gorgeous plates remind of having tea at Harrods last month when I was visiting London. I was smitten with the Rose macaron, just amazing! Clean, crisp, white and soft pink sheets….so lovely. Lastly the outfit in the last photo is too amazing…I adore that soft pink dress and the glamourous couch!

    This post is perfection, you always dazzle me!
