Weekly Love - Week 57

+ A bit rundown and my eyes have gone all red and puffy - which means no photo booth portrait for you this week! Instead you can have a quote from one of my favourite poets, Philip Larkin. He sums up my personal literary style perfectly in something he wrote in a letter one day...  (Unfortunalty, not feeling great also means that this will be quite a short Weekly Love...)

+ My first Graze Box arrives today - I'm so excited, it will be there when I arrive at my parents house tonight! I wonder what I'll get?

+ MJ's marble nail tutorial - an absolutely inspired idea!

+ So far I have paired 10 bloggers together with an international blogger pen pal on my blogger pen pal exchange - so happy! Also over the moon that Angie is my new pen pal!

+ Meeting up for a lovely coffee date with my friend Victoria whom I have not had a catch up with for ages! She also gave me a years worth of old Vogues!

Lauren Moffatt's new lookbook - I want so much from it!

+ Chocolate and Banana Toasted Sandwiches.

+ Nicolette has put together one of the best fashion week survival posts I've ever seen! 

+ I gave in I got Tumblr.

+ Matia talks about juggling blogging with your spare time.

+ Live streaming the second half of the Independent Fashion Bloggers conference at Milk Studios at New York Fashion Week.

+ An old article, but I love PR Couture's piece on how its always the same old bloggers getting involved in brand collaborations.

+ Chocolate, lemon & pink marshmallow cupcakes from the Primrose Bakery.

+ Now, thought loads of bloggers are doing it now I want to put a 'three to follow' list of bloggers at the end of each of my Weekly Loves, the original idea (I think) must be credited to the fantastic Lily Melrose of LLYMLRS for her 'five to follow'. So, credit where credit is due, here goes! Three to follow: Gem, Amy & Lauren!

What have you all been enjoying this week?


  1. OMG I am so making those toasted banana & chocolate sandwiches as soon as I get more bananas; you're a genius!
