Oh my dear heart melted when I saw this series by French photographer, Sophie Gamand. Pit bulls are commonly known to be fierce but Sophie wanted to discover more about this misunderstood breed, so she visually delved into their softer side by placing flower crowns on their heads and portrayed them in a ethereal/fantasy/fairy like manner. The results are beyond adorable. Happy Friday xx

Quite often people ask me why I do not market myself better or attend events or post more selfies. In all honesty, it holds no appeal to me, I love blogging but it's solely a hobby. I don't want to be a famous fashion blogger and my aim in life is to live simply, hopefully be a dedicated mother and a devoted wife (can you hear the crickets, perhaps?). Moving to the country and living a laid back and quiet life is hopefully where I will be in 10 years time. So, when I spotted this beautiful home in the Australian countryside (via design sponge,), I felt compelled to share this with you. Owned by Jessica Tremp and Michael Madden, it's a visual feast filled with decor inspiration. They used Mid Century furniture, paintings by Jessica's father, hand made ceramics and antiques. Is this my dream home? Defs, fo sho. Have a lovely weekend. xx
Oh man, I have pure admiration for Vika Gazinskaya. One of my fave designers, her S/S 2015 collection made me love her all the more. The paisley prints (hand painted by Vika herself), the pops of colour, twisted knots worn as turbans, the asymmetrical cuts and,and,and... It's absolute creative genius from this Russian goddess.
It's Summer! Here's a collage of images that express my joy of Summer's arrival. The title was inspired by The Beatles, listen here. Have a super weekend. xx

Recently, designers showcased their Fall Bridal collections in New York and Paris. French designer, Delphine Manivet's work caught my eye and I fell in love with her Spring bridal collection. It is charming and beautiful to say the least. I am so far from getting married but I must admit, I get quite excited when I see bridal wear that is unconventional. I was so drawn to Manivet's designs because she's fascinated with raw materials, antique dresses and fabrics of yesteryear, making use of delicate lace and silk. These dresses are comfortable, elegant yet subtlety original. If you're a future bride then hopefully this collection will inspire you or you're lucky enough to get your hands on one of them. Either way, you win.
Look at her Fall bridal collection here. It's heavenly

Lily Harris is the talented lady behind Lily Stan Studio. Her designs are handmade and suitable for every season and for any occasion which is why I LOVE her clothes. It's versatile, long lasting and pure genius. I'm also obsessing over this magical look book.
"Lily Stan Studio was created by Lily Harris inspired simply by the clothing she wished she had. Lily designs each style to be easy to wear & layer with one another as a uniform. The intent behind this ongoing collection is to create a group of garments that can be worn together interchangeably, creating a small yet extensive personal closet made up of specialty basics."
