So fate (..or my own forgetfulness) has it that I’m in the middle of the countryside with no camera charger, and an abundance of pretty things that I want to post about. I cleverly thought that I’d pop to Boots to get my Diana Mini film developed and post the prints, but alas – it takes a week to process them! They better be decent and not just pictures of my cat considering the time I’ve had to wait for them!
So, instead I thought I’d share some pretty things that other people have put online instead. Enjoy!
I saw the lovely Katie post this guide to London on Twitter earlier, and was enraptured, scrolling through the ridiculously long page of recommendations. Tommy has collected cafes, markets, shops, restaurants and other attractions in her guide to my favourite city, illustrated by some beautiful pictures. I’m yet to visit the majority of places on the list, despite living in London for the past two years. Definitely worth a look if you’re visiting, or even if you live in London!
There are also guides to other places across the world if you have a peek in the sidebar!
Everybody loves a locket. There is something about their secrecy that’s very alluring. What’s better is this selection of lockets by Bonbi Forest are hand illustrated by designer Lee May. I have one with a cat on that you’ll see on here before long. There is just something different about these necklaces that I really love. Now to find a teeny tiny picture to fit inside…
I’ve never tasted Beet Cake. But this video certainly makes it look good! My friend Daryl sent me the link, knowing that I’d like it, and he was right. Although, it’s not so much the cake-making that I’m bothered with, more the beautiful, creative video by tiger in a jar. Hands down the prettiest recipe I’ve ever seen!
If you have the internet and are reading this blog, the chances are you will have come across Wayward Daughter, Cait’s new venture! Still, I thought it worth a plug anyway – how beautiful is the collar above?! If I had a spare bit of money I’d be jazzing up a t-shirt with that beauty in no time. She also has a selection of summer dresses for sale. I may be ahead of myself, but I’m already looking forward to future collections!

In my last post I mentioned a particularly inspiring Marie Claire editorial that I was planning on living by for the foreseeable future (cropped trousers and knits, please!). I decided to scan in a few pages for you so you can see what I was harping on about. Click the link below to see them and click the pictures to see a larger version.
