Wedding inspiration

A month ago my boyfriend and I got engaged in Paris, my favourite city in the world.

 I have been looking for inspiration online ever since and the best places I have come across so far are...

Snippet and Ink

Style Me Pretty

100 Layer Cake

Once Wed

Stone Fox Bride

Over the next fifteen months I will be posting about the things that inspire me along the way, I would love to hear what inspires you?

Cabbages & Roses - new flagship store

On Wednesday evening, I attended the launch party for Cabbages & Roses' new flagship store at 121-123 Sydney Street in Chelsea, SW3.

If French country chic with a touch of British eccentricity is your style then you will love the new Cabbages & Roses shop.

The home and fashion shop is joined by an interconnecting door and the shops back onto The Chelsea Gardener and Bumpkin, with a gorgeous garden at the back. 

As well as homewares, Cabbages & Roses has a gorgeous range of fabrics in soft paisleys, florals, stripes and diagonals.

The bath salts and candles are my favourite, all in beautiful white French chemist style packaging. 

The fashion shop has a range of gorgeous Breton tees, slouchy knitwear, smart tailoring and tweeds for the colder months - all in a perfect palette of pretty pastels, rich navy, crisp white and stormy greys.

Also on offer in the fashion store are products from gorgeous handmade Swedish bath and beauty brand L:a Bruket and shoe polish from British leather shoe brand Grenson.

The shop opening coincides with the launch of Christina Strutt's new book, Living Life Beautifully, available to buy on Amazon. I thoroughly recommend it.
