Not long till I go to Germany!  I've got German class this evening but we are doing inseperable verbs at the moment and I am not very good at it.  I've been loving the weather in England, it has been so hot here in the North West.  I've been volunteering in a local art gallery on Saturdays, wandering around garden centres & eating lots of icecream (current fave two scoops: blackcurrant cheesecake flavour with eton mess flavour).  I can't wait to go away on Saturday morning.


The only piece of jewellery I wear everyday, it's a chrysanthemum.  Best Christmas present ever - off my boyfriend.   

Lazy sleepy pigs that have spent the day in the sun eating fresh grass.

Healthy(ish) breakfasts of greek yoghurt, berries, grated apple and museli. 

Healthy(ish) tea times... I've been eating pitta with avocado and salad every day. 

You can't drink anything else when it's hot...

Blossom near the art gallery where I volunteer.

I can finally wear my sunglasses again!  They don't suit me at all but I love them anyways.

It's exactly ten days until we go to Germany.  Starting off in a city in North Rhine-Westphalia, hopefully nipping for an afternoon to the town of Hameln, the location of the German fairy tale the Pied Piper, and then spending the rest of our time in Berlin! I CAN'T WAIT.

Nail nibbling

Sad it might sound, but I am on a real kick at the moment to stop nail biting.  Or more specifically chewing my nails and skin (sounds so gross when you write it down).  This picture is of my efforts so far - two weeks and no biting!  I REALLY think I am managing to kick the habit because of this nifty little pot of AMAZING that I was given recently: 

I am ADDICTED.  I take this everywhere.

If I keep going I am going to treat myself to pretty spring polishes, such as the newly released Chanel Spring 2012 collection below:
I think I will treat myself to the pink one called 'May' which is also my birthday month.
I know this is all a bit silly, but anything to stop the biting!

Mother's Day

Mother's Day was the best! We went to a grade II Georgian Mansion in the Lake District for afternoon tea and spent the afternoon lazily looking out of the huge bay windows onto the lake... I felt very plump and content.  Spring is definitely coming, the sun beamed down all afternoon.

Daily commute

My commute is 1 1/2 hours each way every day by train and bus.... sometimes the little things make it so much better.

It's Spring!

Spring has arrived.... here is my wishlist for this month:

Essie's 'nice is nice' polish.
Korre's wild rose lip butter... yum, yum, yum! 

Aubin & Wills Lyontte jumper - sadly out of stock but the perfect Spring jumper.

Aubin & Wills Rathvale tee.  Simple and clean.

Bobbi Brown rose shimmer brick

Still on the quest for the perfect nautical tee.  This one is Hobbs Whitebirch tee.

Buying bunches of peonies...

Rose diptyque candle...

I LOVE Spring!
