Light and airy

Just a quick good morning and a lovely sitting room to while away the warm summer evenings we're having here in London. Also wanted to say thanks so much for leaving comments - I've only just enabled them on my blog and it means so much to hear your thoughts. Wishing you a sunny day wherever you are.

Sparkling June

Just back from a perfect weekend in the Champagne region of France; think romantic chateau, driving the winding roads through famous vineyards with the roof down (headscarf and sunglasses required of course), picnics in the sun, creamy-coloured macaroons French flea markets and many perfect Champagne-shaded bubbles. Have a lovely start to your week. CX

Bedtime stories

Pajama parties don't get more glamourous than this: 40 Winks is an amazing boutique hotel in the heart of East London. Each month it hosts an evening of themed story telling to which you must wear your best bedroom attire. Sponsored by Hendricks Gin (for cocktails served in a teacup), Coffee, Cake and Kink (for amazing chocolate cake in the interval) and Godiva (there's even an award for most glamourous nighty), this is a fabulous way to spend an evening lounging on a chaise.

Morning glamour

Now this is a breakfast worthy of cream marabou slippers! The twinkle of chandelier crystal at breakfast time is so elegant. I've been dreaming of amazing chandeliers a lot recently and have been introduced to a whole world of these amazing pieces via CSN Lighting. The glitter they create can transform any room into a glamourous boudoir. Have a lovely day. Love CXX

Lemon Chiffon in June

Boudoir mules - Victoria's Secret

This weekend began with white peonies and Lemon Chiffon cake; iced coffee on a June afternoon; glamourising in a white peony and vanilla scented boudoir before exploring the most beautiful Roof Gardens and a perfect Sunday morning smoked salmon brunch. Hope you had a wonderful June weekend too. Love from Carrie XX

Luxe summer

Fresh greens is the best way to set off summer whites. There's a luxury about a vase full of white roses or a stunning hydrangea surrounding by their intense green foliage. As the early summer London rain falls outside my window I'm dreaming of opening the windows to let in the sunshine once more! Have a lovely start to your day. Love from Carrie XX
