Putting on my favourite Mulberry and pearls for a fabulously decadent brunch at Bob Bob Ricard (‘Press for champagne!’) with girlfriends. Playing tourist in London never gets old. Putting on my new pink Prada heels to make household chores a little bit wonderful. Frequent trips to Chinatown for custard buns and watermelon bubble tea. A surprise delivery from Lulu Guinness (a new pink lips clutch that made me squeal with delight). Pretty pink cocktail earrings from ASOS to brighten up a day. Stopping to smell the roses on the way to the Parliament office. Adding a little extra sparkle at my desk with my favourite Chanel ring.
A serious ‘pinch me!’ moment in my blogging career: joining forces with Jimmy Choo for a fabulous Fashion Night Out party in London: shoes, cocktails and wonderful party-goers (thank you so much to everyone who came to say hello! I’m still grinning at the memory). Packing all my favourite clothes for London Fashion Week. My two favourite Fashion Week accessories: glittery and cake. Garden gnomes in a fantasy garden at the Mulberry show. Soaking up all the action backstage, on the runway and everywhere in between. Beautiful dresses that wardrobe dreams are made of at Erdem and Temperley. Getting to attend the shows of all my favourite designers (and not being able to wipe the smile off my face the entire week).
Making the most of the last of the Cambridge summertime. Evening bicycle rides are more fun when there is a baguette, a bunch of flowers and a Mulberry bag in my basket. The last of my summer days smelt of garden roses, Annick Goutal’s Petite Cherie perfume and Diptyque’s Mimosa candles. Sunny weekends spent lazing on the banks of the River Cam with picnics, good books, my sweetheart and picture-perfect views. Pastel dresses and girl dates at the ice cream parlour. Pretending I go to Hogwarts with Sunday lunches in the Kings College great hall (with a suitably bookish and witty Lulu Guinness clutch bag).
I hope you’ve all had a wonderful September! What are you most looking forward to in October?
Love, Miss B xx
