I can't believe how quickly the first week of my foray into blogging has gone & it's already time for a round up of the best posts I've been reading this week!
There have been some absolutely stunning weddings & events on the blogsphere this week, but my three favourites have to be (from left to right) :
This beautiful 1920s DIY London Wedding over on Whimsical Wonderland Weddings. It was the amazing bridal bouquet that first caught my eye but the entire wedding is just perfect. The bride's dress from Vionnet has to be one of the most simple, yet stunning dresses I have seen in a long time.
I would love to have the opportunity to work at Aynhoe Park one day & this amazing wedding over on Rock My Wedding just reminds me why. It has to be one of the most quirky venues out there but it looks stunning from every angle! This bride & groom certainly seem to have found the perfect laid back, happy vibe to go with the venue.
This London wedding is another one where the flowers that caught my eye initially, but the styling of the whole event is a vision in white & I just want to dive head first into that cake!!!!
I'm slowly getting the Christmas spirit and this great Christmas Special on How to Decorate from Wear & Where has definitely helped. I challenge any of you not to get in the spirit after you've had a browse through all these festive images - & if you don't ... bah humbug on you!
I'm a huge fan of Abigail Ahern and was lucky enough to do her online design school this year. If you are a budding interior designer & don't have have the chance to do her course (or even if you do) then you must up for her blog. She is a font of wisdom on all things design and this post on 'Some Decorating Don'ts' is a must read. I think I might have avoided a few of my more disastrous mistakes if I had discovered blogs before I discovered a paint brush!
Some little girls dream of living in a fairytale castle, I just dream of living in a loft or anywhere with lovely high ceilings & an industrial twist. This light filled loft over on Desire to Inspire just has me green with envy! Not only does it have that amazing industrial feel but the designers have also managed to bring the outside inside in the most spectacular way. I'll be dreaming of this house for weeks!
Best of the Rest
Is it just me or are the women of Paris some of the most chic in the world? Londoners will always be some of the most fashionable, but so many women in Paris just seem to exude this timeless elegance and classic style. Over at Wear & Where this week, the girls have a great interview with a Londoner who has just returned after four years in Paris. Aside from the great article, they've got some great fashion finds for you.
Ever feel like you're the only one who attracts all the weirdoes? We all have a disastrous date story to two & I'm sure we all know friends that have stories even worse than ours, but it's always nice to realise that you're not alone! Thanks to Darling Lovely Life & her 'Ten Signs He's A Bad Egg' post we can do. Every single story has had me cringing & I still can't believe some of them are true: guy who declared love in the first week I am talking to you! Please do go check it out for yourself.
Finally, 'tis the season of the holiday gift guide. There are hundreds out there at the moment, and I'm currently guilt of writing some of my own, but this one from The Londoner really stood out. There are so many things I'd like to add to my wish list, but the Corkicle is definitely up there with the cashmere scarf.
