  • I wish I could meet Meryl Streep one day
    on Jul 15, 2011 in Personal
    Aren't these photographs inspiring? They inspire me for two reasons: for the elegant and ruthless Miranda Priestly and for the shiny office she resides in. I admire Meryl Streep for her versatility, energy and incredible beauty that sh...
  • The perfect summer nail polish
    on Jul 15, 2011 in Personal
    Pastels, metallic grays, and sleek nudes are all part of fresh 2011 nail polish trends. I discovered this Rimmel 60 seconds 415 instyle coral nail polish in Boots and I am utterly in love with it. Painting your fingertips is the quickest and inexpens...
  • Wedding series - Hair, Makeup & Shoes
    on Jul 14, 2011 in Wedding

    on Jul 13, 2011 in Personal
    With the weather outside so gloomy and the summer nonexistent, I find myself in need of some sunshine. I bought these bright Gerberas in the flower stall this morning to brighten up my office and then did a quick scan around the web for some sunny im...
  • Bill Cosby's Keynote Speech
    on Jul 13, 2011 in Personal
    Entertainer Bill Cosby delivered this keynote speech at Carnegie Mellon University's 2007 commencement ceremony. I didn't even realise how much I needed to hear someone so inspirational until I watched it. The message is clear, don't talk yourself in...
  • Inject some colour in your home this summer
    on Jul 12, 2011 in Home
    Colour blocking is very trendy right now and I wanted to share some images with you. It takes a brave person to use large blocks of colour in their homes, don't you think? I probably wouldn't have the guts to paint my wall red but I admire people who...
  • Strangest celebrity names
    on Jul 11, 2011 in Personal
    Harper Seven Beckham??? First of all, congratulations to Victoria and David Beckham on the birth of their daughter. Second of all, if you can't think of a normal name right away, why not wait? You can always just call her a baby girl in the meantime.
  • Suzanna's Boden mixtape
    on Jul 8, 2011 in Personal
    While doing through my emails today I came across this. During the whole wedding/honeymoon madness I am ashamed to say that I totally forgot about it. Anyway, when I left my last job, one of my ex colleagues asked everyone in the team to come up with...
  • Graphic Wall Stickers Ivy Covered Birdcage
    on Jul 8, 2011 in Home
    Just after I got back from my honeymoon, it rained all week and the view from my desk outside was pretty miserable. So I tried to work out a way to make it a little more interesting, pretty to look at and then I remembered wall stickers. After some r...

  • Ode to photography and birds
    on Jul 7, 2011 in ArtPhotography
    Oh my goodness, how cute are these birds? I am naturally inclined to loving birds since I am now married to one and therefore lucky enough to possess it as a surname but how could you not love these creatures? So fascinating, colourful and I especial...
  • Today is an interview day
    on Jul 6, 2011 in Personal
    Hey everyone, I have two interviews today, yay. I am really excited but also a little bit nervous. I've only ever had two interviews in an office environment so I haven't really had much practice with that. I will just have to answer honestly and hop...
  • Positively exhausted
    on Jul 6, 2011 in Personal
    via pixdaus It's been a roller-coaster day and I am too tired to blog about my wedding or anything else. I left the house at 11am and returned 12 hrs later. I went through two interviews, travelled south, west, central and no...

  • Removing rust stains in the bathroom
    on Jul 5, 2011 in Home
    This is what I discovered under the bath plug today and I was determined to get rid of it so I found a great little tip. Most of you will find this a boring tip but you never know, it may just one day stop your landlady coming down on you like a ton...
  • Wedding series - The Engagement
    on Jul 4, 2011 in Wedding
    Isn't this photo gorgeous? It was 4th October 2009 and it was a glorious Autumn day and we arrived in New York the day before. On the morning of our engagement, Simon was really adamant on going to Central Park. I laugh about it now as knead a feelin...
