  C H E E R I O !  

Tomorrow, Dan moves to London. I am experiencing all sorts of emotions: happy/sad, excited/nervous, confident/scared... Can you imagine what he is going through? The last time he visited London, I was living there. It was so nice to see him on the other side of the world - he beamed and looked every part, The Londoner. I can't wait for Dan to get over there, he will fall in love with London all over again, and she will embrace him as if he were one of her own. Wishing you the best of luck my friend. x.

Exactly a week ago, Dan and I caught up for one last time (and took the photo above). Dan wanted to know where he could grab good coffee in London. It's been a while since I was last in the land of tea and scones - a lot can happen in three years, especially in the food scene. So, with the help of expats and bloggers, I have compiled a list for Dan and other coffee lovers making the move.

Ho, ho, ho... Merry Christmas!

This year my family and I celebrated Christmas in Uncle Ervan and Uncle Marcus' beautiful home. I love this time of the year... Spending it with loved ones, listening to Christmas carols, eating honey glazed ham and roast turkey and opening presents :)

Wishing all of you safe and happy holidays! x.

I've seen the name, "Natalie Joos" appear on numerous blogs but haven't paid much attention to it. I'm already struggling to keep up with Taylor, Sarah, Anya, Vika, Caroline, Kate and Joanna just to name a few... Shish! Whilst scrolling through Google Reader, a very stylish woman caught my eye on All The Pretty Birds. To my surprise it was Miss Joos of Tales of Endearment!

It's fascinating how influential the internet (in particular, blogs) have become in regards to fashion. I'm so glad people from all over the world are embracing/sharing their love of fashion. Embrace it, don't fear it people!

These past few weeks have been quite intense... I'm trying to massage a knot out of my shoulder as I type. I'm on holidays starting today... Yippee! I can't wait to 'switch off' and do nothing for two weeks. I'm looking forward to wearing my comfy, slightly daggy clothes, lying on the sofa and reading 'Emma' or watching Christmas-y films like, 'Love Actually' and 'Bridget Jones' Diary'... 'Tis the season to be jolly after all! Hehe. x.

I recently discovered Laure de Sagazan on the delightful blog, A Cup of Jo. I'm in love with the French bridal designer's dresses. They're utterly feminine and romantic in an understated way. x.
