Holland Park London

Sunday Selection

Holland Park London

Happy Sunday everyone! This weekend has been wonderful, mostly because the sun has been shining the whole weekend in London and I can’t remember the last time that happened.

Today I finally got my wish – an afternoon in one of London’s finest parks with an impromptu picnic and the Sunday papers. I also treated myself to a new bag and it went on its first outing today. I finally spent some money I got at xmas!

Pretty stuff aside, here are a few things I’ve seen this week:

Still have stacks of cassettes you can’t bear to part with? Put them to good use.

Like horror? Try this new book (by an author I went to University with – well done Tom!)

This definitely has the potential for everyday wear.

A simple recipe for espresso granita.

And a round-up of the London is for Living blogs this week:

Ice Skating in London

I’m an awful ice skater but that doesn’t stop me from rushing out each winter to an outdoor ice rink. This year we are going to make a day of it – but where to go?!

I’m going to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park another time so that venue is out. I’m thinking either Somerset House, Tower of London or Natural History Museum – what do you suggest?

Pinterest Finds: Autumn

Autumn might almost be over but as the pavements are covered with beautiful leaves I thought I would take one last shot at celebrating my favourite season. It’s been a while since my last Pinterest Finds so I hope it has been worth the wait!

I love London during Autumn, when the mornings are foggy and there are golden leaves on the ground. I love walking down the street with the cold air pinching my cheeks – there is no need for blusher in this weather! I like eating soup for lunch and dinner and painting my nails a deep, dark red. Getting the nice boots and a winter coat out of the wardrobe (or treating myself to something new). I love the scarves, drinking in front of the fire in a pub, baking homemade apple pies and cosy nights in with Midsummer Murders on the television.

What do you love most about Autumn?
