Little Things of Joy

I agree with Brigadeiro 
macaroons, flowers, candles, red shoes & fresh juices are my top little things of Joy too
especially when they have been displayed so beautifully!

FYI, in case you are looking for the shoes, you can find them here

{London} Polpetto

{ photo by me - Polpetto Berwick Street }

it took a good few minutes to decide whether this post should sit under Interior Decor or Food
not because the food was not worthy of its own mention
(quite the opposite, they were small plates of utter deliciousness)
but because the decor & atmosphere was just so unique 
the long leather banquette, the vintage glass lamp shades, the shabby chic walls
not to mention the embossed metal panels on the ceiling
if vintage or originality is your cup of tea
then Polpetto will be your little place of utopia 
service was friendly, attentive but easy going

back to the food 
everything I tried was just so tasty, full of favours yet not overpowering
the right balance between hearty yet not too heavy

to sum up in 3 words
delicious, delightful & unpretentious 
hence permanently marked as one of my favourite spots in the London dining scene

{Fashion Blogger}: Olivia

{ photos via Olivialsr }

I am obsessed with this girl
her style is clean, simple and oozes of modern chic that looks so effortless

Winter can be a hard season to dress for, 
not to mention the added difficulty of what to pack for a holiday
but Olivia makes it look so easy on her recent trip to the Scottish Highlands,
who knew oversized coats teamed up with a pair of Nike trainers can look so elegant?
I will be supporting this look in the coming cold months for sure

The Blooc House

{ via }

I am in love with the styling of the Blooc house
everything from the minimalist furnishing, the white walls, the contemporary decorative objects
and my favourite - the giant out of proportion paper lantern lamp
simple yet very interesting
for me this is modern Scandinavian at its best

Hi everyone, I have some big news!
This is what I found in the hotel room during a short holiday trip to Edinburgh
a little gem hiding in a mini flower forest
I said Yes

Just discovered this cutest little boutique shop via Instagram

I would happily spend my entire Sunday afternoon there

Remicone Ice Cream

{ images via Retail Design Blog }

This is one of those random posts... 
I see something I am amazed by and I share it
it pains me that I won't be visiting Seoul soon to try out these clouds on your ice cream cone
creations by Remicone, but in my head they will look as real and feel as real as the real thing
(in order to fulfil a childhood dream of eating clouds!)

Happy Sunday :) - or the end of Sunday as it is the case for me, sad face :(

The Classic Combo: Denim & Shirt

I can not get over how chic the above photo is, and so simple to put together
just take your favorite dark denim jeans and throw on a smart shirt
tie back your hair in a ponytail
clutch required, jewellery not necessary

If you are more the light denim fan, 
pair it with a white or cream coloured top for that smart yet relaxed look

The Classic Box Bag by CELINE

{Various Sources, found via PurseForum}

Under creative director Phoebe Philo, Celine has brought out some lovely bags over the past few years, no doubt helping it to become one of the hottest designer brands currently

The Classic Bag in luxurious box leather is the creme of the crop
the updated modern shape, the simple buckle & the slight curvey edges
together creates the perfect look of modern femininity

A Modern Design Home

{ via Est Magazine }

This home is the perfect example that not every modern home is all white with no furniture
while the lines and shapes are modern and clean cut
the wood panels adds warmth and style
the white marble floor is responsible for the sophisticated feel 
I also love the occasional colour splashes
& the little lamps adds to the design elements
the result is modern yet unique

The White on White

{ By The Sartorialist }

Happy Friday ~

Bocca Di Lupo, London

{ photo by me }

Tucked away a quiet street in Soho,
this boutique restaurant is the the perfect place to sample delicious dishes from all regions of Italy
fancy the shaved radish with celeriac and pecorino from Umbria
or the roast poussin with the panzanella salad from Tuscan?
the choice is hard but can be made easier by sharing dishes with a group of friends
Just make sure you end the meal with a plate of tasty  chestnut and pistachio gelatos

The atmosphere is also lively and buzzing 
overall a very enjoyable Sunday lunch

The Long Summer Dress

{via the}

This look is perfect for the inner rock chick that lives in all of us
choose a short sleeve long dress in a deep colour (stay clear of pastel colours)
throw on a pair of ankle boots
borrow your boyfriend or dad's watch
add a small cross body bag
and there you have it, looking gorgeous is that simple
