I was a bit worried for a while that I wouldn't find anything to actually match these shoes. Blue can be tricky, as I had to find a more yellow-blue shade, but I worked very hard at it and have found them to be quite versatile. Hooray, yes? The nail varnish is my favourite colour at the moment, coral, it's called Bright Now and it's from Sportsgirl. My lipstick is my favourite blue-based pink, MAC's Girl About Town, and I wear it with an Illamasqua liner called Titivate. This morning I headed in to the city for a meeting, had a wonder through the perfume department (I am looking for a new scent and as I love perfume I like to take my time) and then bought some eye and face creams before meeting up with John for lunch. I also bought a coffee grinder, which is long overdue – I've been grinding up my coffee beans (I LOVE that freshly ground coffee bean smell) (it's almost as good as that first sip of coffee) with a pestle and mortar every morning which might be good for my stock standard new year get-fit-get-toned goals but is not quite so good for the taste of my espresso. Now I can just vrrrroooom for a few seconds rather than spend minutes pounding away in the kitchen so I'm sure my neighbours will be pleased too. Smiles all round!

vintage blue hydrangea print dress and summer mornings in the city
This is what I wore today. My new to me vintage dress with a hydrangea print in blues, my 1950s gold beaded cardigan and blue and white ankle strap platforms from topshop a couple of years ago. I've been looking for a dress like this for as long as I can remember and at last I found it! On etsy, just like most of my vintage clothes. It's in the softest cotton pique and it is a firm favourite already. Now, to find one with pink florals..!
