{hello + brand new things}


. . . hello! has been a while since there was site news and today there are many exciting things . . . under the intoxicating glow of dimly lit chandeliers and candlelight over a late dinner one evening, p. came up with the brilliant idea of creating a beautiful way to browse the {this is glamorous} archives, and while things are only at the beginning, here are the new pages so far . . .

one: features & favourites
browse favourite posts, as well as categories, and soon, weekly features such as two lovely things, at the shops & colour inspiration . . .
{click here} for a peek

two: photography | fashion | travel
browse by category, broken down into photography {in both design & fashion}, fashion editorials & lookbooks, and travel . . .
{click here} for peek; this page is still in progress

. . . still more to come, but for now, it’s too many cups of coffee and dashing out the door, a perfectly messy topknot, heels and trench . . .

{this week is going by quickly!} hope it’s beautiful where you are,

23 Notes
  • Beautiful!! These are all so lovely!

  • This reminds me that I should most definitely be sending a loved one a message in a bottle. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • I have just stumbled across your blog and ADORE it!!!!!! so beautiful. I am now an avid follower. Here is my own little retro lifestyle blog:

  • Thats great news. Now inspiration will be even easier to find!

  • this is such a good idea, it’s a nice way of inviting people to look at what you’ve done earlier. i find that bloggers and blog readers – myself included – are looking ahead a lot because we know there will be new posts to read (and to make) all the time. and there are so many blogs…
    when i discover a new favourite, i don’t often have the time to read all previous posts. but i sometimes make tea and read just one nice blog, and it’s always very satisfying.
    i think you’ve done a good job on making your previous posts available and tempting!
    oh dear, long comment. maybe blog reading is a topic for an entire blog post, actually…

  • i love your blog.

  • LOVE the yummy little treats… add some café crème and life is good!
    FAB to have you stop by… it’s been too long… I need a little Glamour now and again!

  • those deserts look so good!


  • kate – you are so sweet! and thank you – yes, sometimes it’s sad when a favourite post is moved into the archives – thought it might be fun to bring a few back, but happy to know that there are still a few who have a look :)
