Today I was sent a sweet dvd of Sophie Dahl and Nigel Slater talking about life and food. I love Sophie, her food and her style and her writing. A good start to the week! 

The Longest Day



Today seemed like the longest day eveeeeeeeer. I had to be in work for 8am and omg by 11am i was ready for lunch and by 2pm I was ready for tea! It was so busy and I have come to the conclusion that Monday through Wednesday are quite hard. Thursday and Friday things begin to ease back a little.

Yesterday my boots arrived, so wonderful. It is so nice to have stylish knee boots and they do rock a Toast style which makes me terribly pleased! All of a sudden in England it is the fall so I know that any day know I am going to want to to start wearing my Reed Riding Hood coat. I am holding out though for Edinburgh. I tired it with my boots and it looks so smart ha ha in a guarding Buckingham Palace kind of way! ha ha . No not really.

I am starting to think about the sort of clothes I can wear in Edinburgh. Honestly in between my work tasks this is the kind of thing which occupies my mind( that and food too!). I am thinking boots leggins, bow sweater and RRH coat to travel up, blue washed jeans and a little smock top and ballet flats for the Saturday and leggins and a sweater and boots for the Sunday. Mundane I hear you scream but I am a geek and like to be sorted. 

Sooooooooo I leave you with some nice images - Lili Cole ( who I think is so cool) and SUPER EXCITEMENT the new series of Gossip Girl begins tomorrow! Sofa me big time.

Midweek tomorrow, deep breath to hold out until the weekend!


Weekend Bliss


This weekend we had such a relaxing one. The boy did some gardening- we bought some plants,  I started to make my stuffed elephant( which will take some time!).

We went to see Julie and Julia and I loved it. Meryl Streep was awesome and Julia Childs seems such a sweetheart. Very tall too.

Anyway.... I got the most heavenly sweater from a store called Next and I have also spied a sequin dress in black that I am longing for, and the most GORGEOUS red coat you could ever imagine. BLIS

I HEART autumn clothes !
