Museum Nails

Aren't these gorgeous?  I tried to do my own watermelon nails recently and they didn't look half as cute!

Love these shelves.  The combination of books and things and that JFK painting - just lovely.

Kate Spade Stamp

Well this is fantastic. A desk stamp with wonderful phrases? I really wish I had a job that involved stamping things on paper.

Six Years Today

Six years ago I decided to start a blog. And six years later, here I am! Thanks for sticking by - this little blog has gone through the finishing of a thesis, an engagement, a marriage, a new job, a change of country and now another new job. The adventure begins, again!

The First Day of the Rest of the Days

Today is my last day at my job. I've resigned and taken a new and exciting role in a start-up and I feel energized, excited and happy. But I am also so sad to be leaving such wonderful people. If I find people this wonderful elsewhere, then I know I'm making the right decision. So I'm jumping off the ledge - wish me luck!

The Grand Budapest Hotel

I'm a bit late to the party on this one, but I just saw The Grand Budapest Hotel and it really is a marvel. So beautifully composed - the attention to detail is awe-inspiring. And it's laugh out loud funny, too.

Its vanished trees, the trees that had made way for Gatsby’s house, had once pandered in whispers to the last and greatest of all human dreams; for a transitory enchanted moment man must have held his breath in the presence of this continent, compelled into an aesthetic contemplation he neither understood nor desired, face to face for the last time in history with something commensurate to his capacity for wonder.
—F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
Isn't this beautiful? A lovely selection here of the ten best sentences in literature. Read and enjoy!

Shop arrangements

Sometimes the layout of shop shelves can be so soothing, no? I love this design and the colours used, too.

What a comfortable looking room. I love the hanging lights - a very sweet detail.

Anthropologie Jacket

Toying with getting this jacket, even though I rarely wear florals. Could be fun with some ripped jeans, perhaps?

Little Red Riding Cases

I've been noticing some very cute little pouches on the interwebs of late, and these two are especially cute. I think the pencil roll could work well for make-up brushes, too.
