October Favourites

Another month, another million blog posts I want to talk about here…

1. Cristina getting feminine suits spot on

This is how girls should wear suits. So simple. So sexy.

Trop Rouge

2. Sincerely Kinsey’s DREAM porch

It is seriously my life’s goal to own a porch like this. There are no words to describe HOW MUCH I want a porch like this.

3. Sarah’s amazing house

Seriously. Do people really own houses that look like this in real life?? It has an outside/inside bar overlooking the palm tree surrounded pool. ENVY.

A House in the Hills

4. Amy’s touching blog post on motherhood

It’s just written so perfectly. I wish I could write half as beautifully as this.

5. Jenny’s beautiful Zimmerman dress

A gorgeous dress in an adorable Italian fisherman town.

6. Rose’s Brighton trip

I’ve only been to Brighton once. It was years ago and I arrived quite late in the day for a Green Day concert so didn’t get to see much of it. It’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to go back and explore more and Rose’s sunset over the sea photos may have sealed the deal for me. (Also, that scarf = perfect)

The Londoner in Brighton

7. Rosie’s perfect Autumn weekend

You can’t get much more quintessentially British autumn than a log fire, a Sunday roast, a walk in the woods, muddy wellies & lots of snuggly jumpers. (Also loving Rosie’s pumpkin patch post too)

A Rosie Outlook

8. Amy’s face

Have I gone on enough about how beautiful Amy’s face is yet? Seriously though. Imagine looking like this.

The Little Magpie

9. Sydney’s birth story

I have to admit I’m a little bit envious of her after-birth treatment. A complimentary full body massage? A private room? She asked for early check-out after 24 hours? As much as I didn’t have a ‘bad’ experience at Poole Hospital (in terms of care), I’ve had friends who were in and out again as quickly as possible with no help or guidance at all.

The Daybook

10. Julia’s amazing (£40) Chicwish dress

Let’s face it. Julia could make a bin bag look glam. But this dress really is something special. I’m not sure about Chicwish’s clothes making practices though or how ethical they are. Surely a dress with this much detail should certainly cost more than £40?

Gal Meets Glam11. Tuula

I couldn’t make it through a monthly round-up without including my travel/life inspiration queen, Tuula. This month her posts about CroatiaTurkey have really blown me away.

A birthday party at Farmer Palmer’s

On Saturday our goddaughter Lexi turned 2. We were invited to a birthday party at Farmer Palmer’s to celebrate. This birthday party was extra special to us as we unfortunately missed her first birthday party as Huxley was still in intensive care this time last year. Lauren & Ben very kindly came to visit me in hospital with a massive care package of sausage rolls and cake so I didn’t totally miss out but it definitely wasn’t the same as being there in person. Hux & Lexi were very nearly birthday buddies as his due date was originally the same day!

We’d never been to Farmer Palmer’s before but had heard a lot about it and were really excited to go. Nick’s sister Neile was invited with Elsie & Hadley and our friends Kat & Lucy were there too. We went on a giant bouncy castle, had a ride on a tractor, stroked a calf, brushed a pony, saw pigs, sheep & guinea pigs, ran around the soft play and gorged ourselves on pizza and cake. It was perfect.

To be honest, we missed quite a lot of things there as we were too busy eating for the most part and Huxley was pooped after 2 hours so we’ll definitely have to go back.
