I’m pretty lazy when it comes to pinterest, as evidenced by my only having one follower (thank you whoever you are), but damn I love me a pinterest competition. I love the challenge (and excuse) of roaming around the net, seeking out beautiful things/images, often in colours you wouldn’t gravitate to naturally. This time it was yellow. Let me tell you, there ain’t nothin’ mellow about yellow. It is amazing. I sent the final board to my friend who told me about the competition and she said it made her want to wear yellow tomorrow.
The catch? That all the boards go into a draw – no skill involved. If dopey here had maybe read the instructions..
But you know what? If I hadn’t spent all those hours surfing around for ‘lemon’ or ‘sunshine’, how would I ever have known that yellow and I were meant TO BE. You heard it here first. Yellow and I are going steady this summer.
(Oh and if you have nothing better to do and want to see the whole board, just click on the pic).
(Even though I wasn’t there).

The product reviews say these break super easily, but I don’t think that would bother Nucky. Are we going to fight over who gets to be Lucy Danziger?

Today is my brother’s birthday. For this, we have a nice little afternoon of cake and champagne planned. I’m on finger sandwich duty which has led me to buying more loaves of bread, cream cheese and crème fraîche than I have ever done in my entire life. The cake we’ve ordered him is pretty rock n roll, but I do love these as well. Happy birthday best brother in the world.

Again it goes to show you don’t need a huge, fancy location to throw a gorgeous party. This would have been such a warm, fun, good for the soul night don’t you think? It’s all in the detail folks, it’s all in the detail.

This is pretty cool for those who can’t afford their own personalised Smythson stationery (i.e. me, sadly). It may be a problem though when for the life of me I can’t decide on a colour..
