I have had a long running love affair with Paul & Joe. (And before you ask, I am not about to run off with French brothers.) It started when I was about sixteen and since then my passion has grown in vast quantities.
As you can imagine, I am having sleepless nights imagining this eagerly anticipated reunion with my Love in Paris next week. To me, there is no boutique quite as beautiful as Paul & Joe on Avenue Montaigne, and I cannot wait to step foot in there again.

Ok, so I know I am soon to be in the land of patisseries, but I do love British cakes (I am a total sucker for a Victoria sponge.) If you fancy a quintessentially English sugar fix, there is no better place than Peyton and Byrne.
Ain't it pretty?
Here are a few of my favourite London spaces:
Fake it Till You Make it:
1. (Also called 'Act as if') is a common catch phrase that means to imitate confidence so that the confidence produces success.
The pretty rosette is courtesy of my divine friend Hannah, who fakes it like the best of them. Thank you lovely! X

I spend all year waiting for the magnolia in front of my house to bloom. It spends most of the year as a giant, skeletal, arboreal form, but for about two weeks in spring it is adorned in the loveliest pink and white. I think it's worth the wait.
The flowers are nearly all gone now, but here she is (a few weeks ago) in all her glory.
