I'm getting really into pinning interiors, in particular bathrooms. I dream of the day I can 
have a whole white, mirrored cabinet to myself. I loved these photos of Stacey Nishimoto's 
bathroom from Into the Gloss. The mix of the brush stroke art, big glossy bottles of Chanel 
and the plastic pots normally used for boring things like pasta turned into cotton wool
Plus, Stacey (who works for Nasty Gal) has my new favourite Instagram feed.

A new summer favourite- Peace, Love & OPI. It reminds me of spilled oil on the pavement,
or after it's just rained. Plus it stays on for ages which for me is paramount as it saves me
having to do my nails three times a week. But sometimes I still do. Hashtagnailphobia

Sunday dreaming/moaning. Wishing (another adjective) I was back on the Almalfi 
Coast and following Bella around with my camera on land and sea.

My new favourite app VSCOcam. When instagram filters no longer fill that void, this is where it's at.
Which has also spurred me on to make my instagram more stylised and uniform, something that
I've wanted to do for a while. Un-orderly photos are my kind of nightmare.

Something about white walls and green leafy plants has always got me. I like the 
juxtaposition between clean, minimal man made interiors and objects against the 
uncontrollable, almost messy sprouting of green nature. This theme has been quite 
prominent in my tumblr recently, so I thought I'd translate some of my favourites 
onto here as a midweek inspiration.

Perhaps it's a good idea to look for ways to embrace the heat, and the frizz along with it. I 
realised I had never published these photos from backstage at Sister by Sibling AW13 this 
February and although it's probably not time for oversized knits quite yet, it certainly is the 
time (if there ever was one) for frizzy hair. I'm certainly looking forward to getting the tube 
in 33degrees tomorrow, and I want to look damn sassy about it. Bumble and bumble did the 
hair backstage at their show, and although I won't be going as far as wearing extensions or 
hair twisting pieces of my hair into curvy grips, I will be using the new and miraculous 
thickening range. Go big or go home, as they say.

Flower overload. Ten thousand flowers filling three rooms tends to do that.
Yesterday's Jo Malone Christmas in July event (click here for a photo of Santa on the hottest 
day of the year) made me think back to a launch in the Jo Malone house earlier this year for
the new scent Peony Blush Suede. It's not out until September but I can't wait any longer to
share these images. The room was filled with ten thousand peonies which, mixed with the smell
of burning candles and spritz of the perfume, was a sensory overload in the best sense kind of

Is this the most incredible floral arrangement or what? I can just see it at a wedding...

It was far too easy to take hundreds of beautiful photos of the space- so enjoy!
