Is it possible to visit Paris and notto succumb to the doe eyed "this city is MAGICAL" cliché? From the crumbling to the contemporary, chic to, um, more chic, I loved every aesthetic turn in the city.
For our evening out on Tuesday, we were treated to a meal at the Baccarat crystal museumby our hostsComptoir des Cotoniers. I couldn't even attempt to play it cool with how insanely beautiful the museum was, or how lucky I felt to be there.

For those of you that follow me on Instagram, no doubt you'll already know that I've spent the past couple of days in Paris. Escaping for a fleeting visit has been the most wonderful treat, and I returned to London today buzzing with all of the beauty and artistry of the city. I have so much to catch you guys up on from what I was doing in the city, but this morning I spent a few hours wandering the City, eyes on stalks, truly feeling the energy of Paris. I've put together a little photo diary of some of my favourite moments.
When I moved into my very first flat, to go to University, I remember discussing with my best friend how clothes had been usurped entirely, in our shopping consciousness, by home ware. Now that I've moved for a second time it is literally all I can think about again. Any spare cash is immediately dedicated to improvements, any spare time to tidying and building furniture - have you guys ever experienced this total brain takeover?! I guess as a student we were thrifting everything too, and didn't have a choice over the furniture which was already in our flats; now having moved to a totally unfurnished apartment it's like a whole new world has opened up, although finding second hand treasures is still one of my favourite past times.
Right now I am on a mission to assemble my home office. In my old place I holed myself up in the kitchen/dining/spare bedroom, but now I have (in theory - although it is currently taken over by boxes) a neat little area all of my own. Working from home, feeling comfortable, inspired and focused is so important, and so I am taking on board as many inspirational images and suggestions as possible. Pinterest and I are very close right now.
