Favourite Things


Oh Peonies! These are my ultimate favourite flowers, this time of year is the best as they are actually available for purchase, now I have a steady income I think this may be dangerous as I may spend a bit too much time in the florists buying them. Also forward warning that I may plague you all with pictures of them... I like single ones and having them in plain glassware like this vintage milk bottle!


New Handbag. It is basically a leather version of that Zara "city bag" everyone has. I am very snooty about non-leather handbags though, so when I saw this come online it went in my bag and after waiting, an actual month to get it, H&M? Really guys? I am so glad I got it. The leather is so soft and smells nice which is odd for me to say because as a child I hated the smell of leather, shoe fittings at Clarks caused me to spiral into a dramatic tear stained mess. I guess I have grown up?


This plate and cup was a gift from Stuart's mum, the idea being that he could make me the routine "Saturday baked-goods morning" breakfast and put my hot chocolate on the side. Thank you. Also, how nice is it that it is possible to have breakfast in the garden at the moment?

Oh, also sorry for the lack of posting last week, I am still breaking myself into working 5 days a week, and on Thursday I was clearly sleep deprived, thinking I pressed "Publish" on a post and didn't. I will try harder this week.

I hope you had a nice week and weekend!

With love from,

  4. That's a lovely bag - I'm the same and much prefer leather, but I have to admit I don't let that stop me buying non-leather goods!! I love your cup and saucer, what a thoughtful and pretty gift :) xx

    1. Leather just ages better, and looks good even if it is a little old! But yeah, I have non-leather goods too! It was very thoughtful, poor boyfriend, his mother even encourages my rule.

    1. Lucky, lucky Maria! Sometimes flowers seem like an odd luxury as they just die, so reduced ones seem ideal!

    1. Aw, thank you. I love that little milk glass, too scared to actually use it for its real purpose though... It is nice! Very European to be able to eat outside, I could get used to it!

  12. I love ALL OF THESE THINGS. But a month to receive something from H&M? That's utterly ridiculous. Send some peonies my way if you get bored of having them in your house. xx

    1. Haha, yeah, I think it was a return and it took ages to get back to the head office to get sent to me, so it's like adopting a spurned puppy. Rejected handbag. Not great though, shipping wise. Bad H&M.

    1. It is very pretty. I love the mix of leathers. And I guess it was worth the wait, I love it and it's leathery smell!
