Snapshots of January

1st February 2014

snapshots of January, 2014

London shop windows full of Laduree loveliness. My French chair and my favourite big eye print (found in Snooper’s Paradise, Brighton). Drifting around my old neighbourhood of Chelsea. Writing in my pretty Laduree diary. Pink roses in the Oxford Covered Market. Seeing Warpaint in concert for the third time, I guess this makes me a superfan. Cute cars and old bikes. Always. Adding to my plastic camera collection. Reels and reels of cotton at the first Oxford antique market of 2014.

Looking up at the pretty skyline of Oxford. The tiniest Bambi I ever did see. The dreamy side streets of Kensington. White roses from my man, my current favourites. Phone box perfection. Putting my feet up with this month’s edition of Mollie Makes, which features little old me! Misty Oxford mornings, the kind where you could easily disappear through a wardrobe or a looking glass.

Photographing old bikes. Tea cups galore at the Oxford antique market. Old films and nostalgia on Sunday afternoons, while totally falling for Audrey Hepburn. Receiving a pretty card and letter from my Mum. Banishing the January blues with my new floral lined Boden brogues. Enjoying my recently thrifted finds. Lunch break French Impressionism at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. A cheeky Bambi and a pretty Oxford cottage.

Happy February one and all. You can follow my February journey on Instagram, maybe I’ll see you there!
