Gimme, Gimme

I want thick marble slabs, tapas sets in chalky pastel colours and cream jugs in abundance. Rowen & Wren are a haven for understated slightly nordic inspired gems, all hued in greys and dusty pinks.

Got Milk?

Decorative Vintage Milk Bottles Decorative Orange Milk BottleIt’s all anyone in this usually grey city can talk about, but god damn it doesn’t the sun make people happier? It makes me crave bright, childish colours and these milk bottles are perfect. Use as a vase or maybe a fun centre piece for outdoor dining? Available at my favourite Hunkydory Home.

 

Plated Poets

“I am nothing but a simple plate, porcelain skin painted gold and blue. I am not a poet, just a dish, but I’ll leave that judgement up to you.”

Crockery that longs for you and tells you that you give meaning to their life, Keats had nothing on these silent poets. I am falling hard for these dishes from mineheart, especially the cheeky “A little bit on the side” plate.

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard..

Milk Bottles from Peach BlossomTraditional School Milk Bottle from DrinkstuffStriped Paper StrawsThis weekend I managed to consumed worrying amounts of milkshake and it’s reignited my obsession with paper straws in pastel colours and vintage style milk bottles. The above straws are from Peach Blossom (check out the heart print ones on the site too) and the bottles are from DrinkStuff.

P.S I totally know I need to stop with the RnB inspired post titles

Ladurée thats not to eat

How would you feel about spending £42 in Ladurée and you walked away with not one edible morsel? Well now you can do just that by purchasing one of their perfumed candles.

Laduree Scented Candle Selection

The new venture uses the signature colours of ladurée green,  sugar almond pink, lemon yellow, along side some of their key macaron flavours to create a votive to bring parisian chic to your home.

The French patisserie say of them: “With its candle scents, Ladurée offers you its distinctive signature, weaving a thread of emotion and delicacy between each of its perfumes.”

Laduree sérénade candle

It all seems a touch ridiculous in my eyes, I would never refuse one as they look and sound incredible (caramel with salted butter anyone?). But hey if you wanna burn £42 right in front of your eyes then this arguably is one of the chicest ways to do it.
