I was super chuffed to be given the Happy 101 award by My New Favourite Thing and EIGHT. Thank you, ladies!

I'm to list 10 of my favourite things and then to pass the award into 10 of my favourite blogs. Done and done!

So, in no particular order...

1. London at 6am

2. Charbonnel & Walker truffles

3. Sonia Rykiel's pom pom headbands

4. Doodling

5. Chanel Le Vernis hysteria - I'm a sucker for it, and once again, am utterly enamoured by their new shade, Chanel's Nouvelle Vague 527. A dreamy blue...

6. A full sugar pot

7. Herm├Ęs orange (and what's inside those naughty little tangerine boxes)

8. Being at home in Wiltshire with my family (including my darling brother, pictured - check out his amazing blog, 100 things to do while 20)

9. The Sunday TImes Style Magazine (last week's Big Fashion Issue was a feast for the eyes)

10. Chandeliers - I have four in my tiny flat!

(All images are mine unless otherwise stated.)

I tag:


  1. GOOD choices! What a treat for the eyes this post was. :) With all those chandeliers and sugar pots, your flat must be positively dreamy. You should give us a virtual tour sometime. :)

  16. How fun was that?! Love the nail polish, pom pom headband and I have a massive chandelier in my foyer, DR and Kitchen too! Feel ya on that :)

  17. What a beautifully photographed & arranged group!! Now I feel like such a slacker: I was tagged, too, & haven't even started my list.

    That's probably my all time favourite colour, that celedon/pale blue.

    And they're all my favourite things, too.. just replace Palm Beach/FLA/end of Long Island/beach with my family, for number 8. I really want crystal chandeliers (my husband doesn't get it) but to me they're like jewels for the home: the perfect accessory & they go with everything.
