Happy weekend + lovely links

Happy weekend friends! Thanks to the Queen's Birthday, we have an extra long weekend here, so I'm looking forward to getting my apartment organised + exploring my new area, making the most of the sunny winter weather. I'm also starting to put together a few decorating ideas...more on that to come!

These shots from the iconic Burberry campaigns were taken by Mario Testino and are just a sample of what is being showcased at the Private View exhibition which opened yesterday in Beijing. This video shows Christopher Bailey + Mario Testino talking about their mutual appreciation of each other and the synergy between them that has produced an incredible breadth of work over the past 15 years.

:: Here are my other favourite lovely picks of the week...

+ I was left speechless after seeing the transformation of Bailey's new home; truly inspiring!

+ Carolyn has just opened Matine, the sister store to Tilly Maison, filled with lovely handmade pieces.

+ I loved these 6 steps to becoming the very best version of you.

+ I have a crush on pretty much everything in the new Adore online boutique + have started making a wish list for my apartment!

:: And in case you missed it...

+ I love everything about Diane Kruger's edgy, yet feminine + chic style.

+ A white, bright + lovely workspace.

+ Oliva Palermo + her charming pup, Mr Butler make a stylish duo.

+ Insta-lately...A little peek into what I've been up to!

Thank you so much for stopping by this week; I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
