Day in the Park

Park Guell – one of Barcelona’s lovliest outdoor spaces. Designed by Antoni Gaudi, Barcelona’s favourite son, it is in a magnificent location, high on a hill overlooking the city and the sea beyond. More on Gaudi and the park in a future post… It’s obvious from these photos that the weather was quite simply spectacular on the day that we…

Hola, Barcelona

Barcelona – colourful, beautiful and DELICIOUS! We were surprised to fit into any of our clothes after the sheer volume of tapas and wine we managed to consume, not to mention the sangria… oh, and the paella… uhhhh! (in the immortal words of Homer Simpson). A wears Tank Bassike Jeans J Brand Blazer Little Jo Women Shoes Scanlan Theodore Belt…

Paris, Nombre Quatre

Our last Paris post, we promise! It is near impossible not to find a fabulous setting to take a few pics in this most beautiful of cities – particularly true of the area we stayed. We booked our accommodation through AirBnb, as we often do and completely lucked out with this choice. A small and perfectly formed Parisian pied a…

Paris, Nous t’aime

Paris in the springtime – some may say cliche but we say hooray. Our time here really could not have been more perfect. From our gorgeous apartment on the Ile Saint Louise we set off each day (under a perfectly cloudless blue sky) to explore this magnificent city. We have both been to Paris before so with our limited time,…

Paris, Nombre Deux

Another perfect springtime day in Paris. This sweet cobblestone lane was in the backstreets of Montmatre. We feel lucky to have such a gorgeous backdrop for this post.

Parisienne

Our first day together in Paris. Our FoWTP (Fear of What To Pack) saw us choosing many a layering piece to combat April’s notoriously changeable weather. This proved a master stroke as we were comfortable from the cool morning/evenings through to the decidedly warm afternoons. The complimentary colour scheme of our choices on this particular morning was completely coincidental : ) A…

Istanbul Diary

It seems that I’m making a habit of this – just as I am about to embark on another overseas journey, I finally find the time to rifle through all my photos of my last trip, to create a Travel Diary. So scraping through just in time, a week before both A and myself fly out to Europe, here is the first of…

Soot shorts

I think it is safe to say that these silk shorts have literally been worn to death. Once a stark white, they have mellowed to cream… haha, yet I still find myself feeling good whenever I pull them on. They have been one of my better purchases and while they weren’t kind to my bank account at the time, I have DEFINITELY…

Laced Up

I have a bit of a thing for lace – not the icky cheap nylon kind but the cottony goodness of the kind created by ladies from generations ago. This divine dress from Spell and the Gypsy Collective is made from just such lace. I came across it a while back, fell in love and as it was around Christmas, thought…
