Weekly Love: Week 100

Two very exciting things happened this week - firstly, we have reached the 100th Weekly Love post - what a mile stone - I know how many of you guys love this feature, and thank you so much for sticking with me and my blog for this long! Secondly, I found out that my all time favourite band, Maroon 5 are releasing a new album on June 26th 'Overexposed' - words do not describe how excited I am about this, I absolutely adore their music! Some of the highlights of my pre uni days include getting to see them play live in Brixton and being lucky enough to have the opportunity to review their previous album, 'Hands All Over' for VenusZine magazine - meaning I got to hear the record a couple of months early! In other news, Pilgrims Nook Holiday Cottages opened last week! We're all so tired from getting everything ready, but it is all rather excited all the same!
1. One of the photos I took in the largest cottage, 'The Miller' a few hours before our first guests arrived. | 2. I spent a day in London for some meetings, and I swung by the Cube showroom to check out Medwins woven bags - I think one of them would be perfect for Spring/ Summer! They currently have a pop up shop running at 47 Lambs Conduit Street in Bloomsbury until the 28th if you want to check them out! | 3. I finally got around to reviewing my favourite Chanel Perfection Lumiere foundation over at The Glossy Guide! | 4. Easter chocolates from Hotel Chocolate | 5. If you buy this months Elle, you can get a free £15 Whistles Gift Card! | 6. The album artwork for 'Overexposed'.

During London Fashion Week I took an afternoon out to go to flower arranging with Yardley London. While we were there, the girls at Yardley gave my fellow bloggers and I a preview of their fantastic floral ad campaign - the video is now online, I promise you it will add a dose of pretty to your day!

Also, I wrote an article over on the Motilo blog about investment shopping if you want to check it out!

What have you been enjoying this week? 


  1. I still need to try that Chanel Perfection Lumiere, I always hear such amazing things about it!

  2. Do - I've fallen head over heels in love!

  3. You, me and some of these watermelon martinis? I really can't wait for summer - and go read your foundation review. I need to find myself a good night out one!

  8. Aww, congrats on getting the cottages all up and running! Ah I wondered why I'd found it so hard grabbing the current copy of Elle, clearly I've been missing out!
    The It-bag graphic is beyond perfect, pretty accurate ha xx
