Thank you all so much for your help and input on my last post, I really appreciate all your comments and some of your beautifully inspirational links and so...I went for it! All 4 walls, and even the painter who had advised me not to do it, thought it turned out well! I am getting a picture rail put up to break up the colour a bit. I think the white paint work will be really pretty and fresh with it but I have to wait until next week so pictures after that :)
Until then I am sick again, so I'm entertaining myself with this very cute new magazine, Mollie Makes that my mum found for me (the first edition is selling for crazy prices on Ebay) and this Rose Lemonade is gorgeous!
Do you see the photograph of white peony roses in the background? I am hoping to frame it and put it on my new coral walls, I received it as a giveaway from Heidi at La Isla Blogita
Thank you so much Heidi, it is a beautiful photograph and I love having something unique to put on my walls :)
I have struggled finding summer sandals this year and last. I really love how tan leather can look with dresses and jeans in the summer but didn't want anything too gladiator style and nothing that hurt my feet! I picked these up in Urban Outfitters by brand Ecoté and can't believe how comfortable they are, no blisters at all and a beautiful shade of tan. The ankle strap can be removed too, and they are on sale for £18 right now. I wore mine in the rain, twice (stupid Irish summer) and may have slightly destroyed the soles a bit so am very tempted to pick up a sale pair I am loving them that much! This is my new H by Henry Holland satchel bag which matches the sandals perfectly. I love the stripes and muted nautical colours, the little gold clasp and the cross body strap leaving me hands free! I hadn't bought a handbag in the longest time and this one was just so simple and cute I was drawn to it! I will definitley be using both these things all summer, well...when it doesn't rain
