. gOing bananAs . at bUbble .

whilst the shops may be filling up with new spring cOllections this weekend lOndon played host to a sneak preview of what next fall will look like . at dOt to dOt . & . at bUbble . whilst i wasn't able to get to dOt to dOt this time i did manage to run around bUbble { almost literally . as was squeezing it in amongst many other things i wanted to do in lOndon that day } spotting lovely new brands alongside some equally lovely ones i'd seen before . 

as time didn't allow for the careful photographing of all the loveliness i saw i've turned to instagram to provide some snapshots of the show . & . it's always lovely to see how many of my new favourites were also favourites of so many others too .

. i lOve you to the mOon . & . back .

how has the first mOnth of the year been for you ? has it dragged or has it flown by ?  

for me it has flown by . what i thought would be a quietish month has turned out to be a little busier . all in a good way though . 

i am still feeling in between seasons at the moment . i'm still lOving being able to wrap up in winter woollies . & . light my candles as soon as dusk starts to fall . it's the perfect excuse to curl up with a book { already nearly three books down out of my reading goal of twenty four } . the perfect weather for porridge for breakfast & soup for supper . 

but then . i'm also looking forward to spring . to those lighter warmer mornings that make it easier to get out for my early morning run . to start shopping for new floral frocks . & . trying out fresh new salad recipes for lunch . 

and in the midst of this changing of seasons fEbruary comes along . full of lOve . & . hearts . & . flowers . & . general lOveliness . 

. i lOve you to the moOn and back .


. have a hAppy dAy .

. { another } . ten terrifically delightful finds from tOp drAwer .

the one thing i love about this time of year is the promise of all the new things to come . i long for the sales to disappear from the shelves . & . for all the lovely new pretty things to appear . those fresh . bright . spring collections .

so whilst my head is still a little full of fall & winter . and i'm busy putting the finishing touches to those ranges & looking forward to seeing lots of exciting new ranges at bUbble next week . it was lovely to take a little step into the spring that will come before it . with a visit to tOp drAwer last week .

it was lovely to re-visit the show i first popped along to last september . lovely to see the brands i loved first time around once again . as well as discovering some new ones . & . with the addition of a new food emporium i think we might have to plan to spend a little longer there next time around !


{ 1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . 5 . 6 . 7 . 8 . 9 . 10 }

p.s. i think you can tell from my choice of ten this time around that my mind is in house & kitchen renovation / decorating mode !

. have a hAppy dAy .
