'Magic can be found in stolen moments.'  Francesca Lia Block

Apparently it rained everyday in Oxford last month, how cruel of the weather to be so harsh. It seemed to rain the moment I left the office, and for three consecutive days I walked home in rain so heavy I looked like I'd taken a shower with all my clothes on. [Insert bad language here.]

Despite the rain I've managed to take a few shots of the world around me. I'm always on the lookout for pretty things to cheer up the grey days. The rather scrumptious green rainy day mac is by Boden who recently asked me to take part in their the importance of being Boden campaign. Being a huge Boden fan I couldn't have been more honoured, and as luck would have it, it rained the day of the shoot. No fake rain required! I hope you have a fabulous (rain free) week.

  4. I love the brass door knocker! And I agree about the weather, it's so demoralising. I think the best way to cope with a grey rainy day is to totally embrace the indoors and create an atmosphere. Light some candles, play some records, get cooking... it works for me even on the glummest of grim days off with no adventures to be had! xxx

  6. The only good thing about rain is the requirement of a lovely mac. Your green one looks great on you and I like the way it matches the Laduree shop!
