{august style}

Hello lovelies, happy August! The weather has been so lovely here the past few days, really bringing Spring early which has been a welcome change.

Our open house was a success on Saturday so fingers crossed that we have a keen buyer soon. I will be sharing with the photos of our apartment over the next couple of weeks so stay tuned for the posts!

Here's what I'm loving this month...

{one} The new Royal Doulton range from Donna Hay is gorgeous; loving all of the whites and blues.

{two} I just bought this Tory Burch iPad case and love it already. It has an inside pocket with space to stash papers and is   beautifully lined with suede.

{three} Diptique are my favourite candles; the high quality scent is long lingering and I can't resist the packaging. This pretty Rose scented candle is a new mini limited edition and so cute! 

{four} Now that I can feel Spring on the way I'm starting to plan wardrobe essentials for the new season; I thinking maxi pleat skirts will feature heavily. ASOS have some great well priced maxi pleats like this one.

{five} Anna Spiro's incredible online store opened last week and is filled with nothing short of amazing goodies. A few favourites include this gorgeous love heart cushion; pretty decorative silver boxes & fabulous lamp shade & base.

{six} I can't get enough of statement rings at the moment and couldn't resist this Roberto Cavalli Elephant ring!

Oh and has anyone else been watching The Renovators? I've been getting into it now they have all won the keys to the houses. Can't wait to see how it all unfolds!

Hope your week is off to a great start,

Rachel xo
