Weekly Love - Week 59

+ I signed up to Fashiolista this week - head over and add me as a friend! It's basically a hybrid wish list site of Polyvore and We Heart It - and seriously addictive to boot!

+ Spring is on its way! Things are getting warmer, and crocuses and other bulbs are starting to poke their little heads out of the lawns in the Cathedral gardens. I'm so happy such a cold and horrible winter is almost over!

+ I've written a review of The Confessions of Katherine Howard by Suzannah Dunn over at Judging Covers!

+ Watching My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding on 4oD.

+ This incredible Tumblr of pictures from Google Street View.

+ Buying shrink wrapped mussels cooked in white wine and cream and heating them up in the kitchen to the bemused faces of almost everyone I live with at what my Saturday night comfort food of choice was!

+ You can now buy Fifi Lapin illustrated tee shirts and tote bags!

+ Lots of food and pizza for my friend Milly's 18th. We also had balloons with little LED lights in so they glowed in the dark!

+ Jazzi wants you to help out with her efforts raining money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

+ Working backstage on the house play as head of costumes - I love spending time in the drama studio! I was curled up like a cat in a corner backstage during Wednesday night's dress rehearsal!

+ Gala Darling interviews Milly from Fresh Fashion Faces, who is an independent model scout.

+ Sainsbury's Rice Krispy Rocky Road Bites.

There is an incredible interview with my favourite food blogger What Katie Ate over at The Design Files - a must read with this epically talented food photographer!

+ Garance Dore has written a fun and handy guide to attracting the attention of street style photographers at fashion week! 

+ Building wish lists of stuff to buy at ASOS and Lush - now there is money in my account I don't think this will turn into a healthy habit!

+ Lots of almonds and very spicy things in my Graze box this week - yummy!

+ Lily Melrose talks about why she blogs about her outfits on her Tumblr.

+ Playing badminton without rackets - just throwing the shuttlecock back and forth!

+ Nubby Twiglet shows us the most incredible boutique hotel in Paris...

+ Charlene has come up with THE most incredible chocolate brownie recipe - I can't wait to try it!

+ Sweet messages from some of my lovely blogger friends and readers - thank you guys!

+ Casee Marie has posted a really good tutorial on how to rescue failed outfit post photos in photoshop.

What have you been enjoying this week?


  1. I have had those balloons with led's, so cool!
    I think the purple platforms on your picks from fashiolista are the ones Eliza Doolittle wore to an awards show!, I love them!


  2. @ F - Do you know where they are from? They have them in black on ASOS but not the purple - and I really want them!

  3. How amazing was My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding? I loved it.
