Je t'aime, Je t'adore

I have never learnt french don't know a word of it, doesn't stop me closing my eyes and thinking of Paris - though I have never been!

I wish I were what could be described as 'gamine' in that beautifully European, doe eyed chic way....

A modern day gamine for me would be Zooey Deschanel, there are others of course but isn't she lovely?

I have also just discovered Carla Bruni's beautiful whimsical music! another gamine beauty! - yes her who once dated Jagger and Clapton and is now married to the French president!

There's also the lovely and cutesy 'She and Him' which is Zooey Deschanel's music project so lovely!

There are a few beautiful women who could be described to carry that french type of beauty and style, whether they are French or not! I think it's innate to them....

La,la,la,la,la,la LIFE!

Wow where does time go when your, erm it?! 'It' being that funny thing known as ahem, 'Life'. Well I do have photo's to post about time after such a long break from blogging! I have recently bought 4 beautiful 60s dresses, resulting in me not daring to look at my bank account!

I hope you all had a lovely fathers day for those of you in the UK, I miss my dad very much so I just try and get through the day as quickly as possible to be honest!

This week I am desperately aiming to increase the amount of exercise I do! Wish me luck! Desperately trying to avoid the 30yr old spread....only 6 mths til the BIG 30!

Ok, walking to work now in the sunshine, and as a parting gift...check out these shoes from topshop - I haven't been so impressed with high street shoes such as this for a long time! Way to go topshop! What d'ya think? PS On a sunny morning Bob Marley tunes are the best, but you knew that? Right?

High necklines and short hemlines

I love and have always loved high necklines and short hemlines...always been a leg rather than a breast kind'a gal. Just classier I think, and shouts back to the 1960s. That is all!

Happy 2011! birthdays & resolutions

I hope you all have a lovely year ahead of you! I'm in talks with a couple of new shops to stock my jewellery (will post pics), I've already began the year as I mean to go on...trying something new! So far I have scaled a 12 foot wall - I went indoor climbing with one of my best friends, it was fun and I think I may just be a natural haha so I am completing a three week climbing course now :)!

In the summer I am beginning horse riding again :) cannot wait!

More travelling, places TBC :) and lots of work and life ideas, plans and adventures!

I have three professional courses in the next three months and so much more to come!

Going to bed with Keith


If you haven't bought his autobiography which came out earlier this year, then please do so on this recommendation - it's fantastic. So far I have missed two stops on the bus I was so engrossed reading it, and it's my new bed time read hence the title of this blog post. I don't want the book to end, so I'll just take my time...

Goldielocks, Rapunzel aint got nothin' on her

Marianne, may I please have your hair?
