I've been quite unwell this week (a good chance to catch up on some blogging though!) I've been trying to drink more fluids as recommended (other than black tea of course) so I've been looking for some different green tea as options... But look what i found!

designed by Nathalia Ponomareva
Almost cute enough to make me want to drink more of this stuff, lol!

I'm not sure why but I find that a bath or a shower makes me feel better when I'm unwell (maybe I was an aquatic animal in a past life, hehe) I'd stay in there all day if I could. 

So what makes you feel better when you're ill?

An interesting video that I stumbled across. The first part really made sense to me from a creative perspective.
See what you think

Big decisions to make, lots of work to be done, but in the mean time... a little bit of inspiration to make you smile.

It's Monday morning and I'm sitting on the phone again, on hold (10 minutes of this terrible music so far, and counting) So, using my time productively I have found a few quirky gadgets, bits and pieces that would come in very handy in my home office right about now...

This would be ideal for all the phone numbers, names and notes I seem to write (and lose) throughout the day. And each block would look so cute on the office desk.
How sleek is this little number! A wireless speaker for phone/computer/stereo It's so functional and unlike other phone speakers, it looks great too. 
...As I seem to have lost mine. Check out the Moleskine collection (a favourite of creatives) for a colourful variety of diaries and notepads in all sorts of sizes. 
4. Peter Alexander onesie. 
So I can roll out of bed, grab a cup of tea and head straight to the studio to work. Peter Alexander has so many cute pjs that can easily double as daywear. This one (pictured) is one of my faves so far)

What about you? 
Do you have any favourite study/office bits and pieces you just have to have?

there's a change in the air

winter is coming!

But gosh, now that the weather is cooling down all I want to do is soak up the warm mornings and hang onto that special holiday feeling you can only get in Summer.
This beautiful shoot from Purple Magazine (featuring Liv Tyler) gives me that holiday feeling.

Flavour of the week...

I'm loving this look at the moment. Perfect contrast to a pretty, floaty, feminine dress or wear it with jeans, boots and black to toughen you up. What do you think. Do you dig it?

Stay tuned for NOW&then cocktail collection... Coming soon x

I'm in love...

with IKEA!

I made my first ever trip to an IKEA store yesterday, and now I get what everyone raves about!

images above from here and here

I know there are those who are not into IKEA... but I can't help but get that happy feeling when I walk through those shiny double doors and enter the picture perfect showroom. It's like a grown up version of playing house (especially for those of us who are in student world and don't have a whole house of own or real furniture!)

And I am looking forward to discovering the planning tool, where you can virtually plan your room and decorate it to your hearts content! Yay!

...Like I said, I'm a little bit in love.

blog therapy

When I feel restless and get caught up in the buzz and urgency of everything, I come back to my favourite blogs. It might sound lame but they have a way of making me refocus on my own little world, and remind me to look out for all of the lovely little things around me in my daily happenings. They have a way of showing the beauty in the simplicity of daily life... It's the feeling you get, not just pictures and words and products.
I wanted to share with you my favourites at the moment...

The Design Files                                 Tea for Joy

Do you have a favourite blog/site? We'd love to hear from you! x

I hate to say it... but I think I'm turning into a stepford wife (minus the husband, children, house, housekeeping skills, social life... Ok, so maybe it's just the "mature aged" magazine habit) I must say, this magazine is rather (very) good! A little bit of everything and a whole lot of lovely! 
I just had to let you know! 
And now that I have, I'm off to bake some scones, white wash the vintage bureau I just thrifted from vinnies and plan the next ladies brunch (haha! jokes) 

Check out their website here or better yet, get yourself a copy of the current issue (you can't beat the real thing!)

Wild Target

Recently saw this film Wild Target (by recently, I mean that I saw it when it was still at the movies... It's taken me this long to post about it, oops!) 
I'm adding this film to my list of favourites, especially for Rose's (played by Emily Blunt) wardrobe. Nice!

Try it like this...
1. vintage-look necklace by Kelly Framel  2. Waterfall jacket from Topshop 3.Wear it with opaque tights and chunky heels (colourful heels and/or tights look great together too) 4. Sequin skirt by Eight Sixty

How would you wear this look?


What's your great escape?
