FABULOUS FLORALS & PRETTY PASTELS

Florals have been a firm staple trend for the past few years and SS12 saw them receive yet another chic update. These aren’t the standard floral prints you’re used to seeing. This seasons florals have a real depth and artistry to them and the great thing is there is something to suit everyone. Mix with contrasting prints or soft pastels for a eclectic modern look.   JO’S PICKS 1.

Last night by boyfriend, his dad, sister and I did a little recky of the area where we will be moving to in a few months. We found some great pubs especially this one http://www.geronimo-inns.co.uk/theeasthill/ But the highlight of my evening was spotting this beautiful old Penny Farthing sitting outside one of the pubs. It really added some character. Glad it wasnt me riding home on it after a few tipples!!

NEW HOME WISHLIST

Hopefully my dreams of decorating our very own home are about to come true as our offer has been accepted on a beautiful flat! Needs a bit of work though, and some! I have been reading interior design mags from cover to cover lately and am planning a rustic/eclectic style in my head. Stumbled accross this dreamy bathtub which is HIGH on my wish list. Will paint it to match my bathroom scheme, or even put it in the bedroom aaaaahhh!!! Rimini cast-iron bath, £769, Aston Matthews
