Chain Reaction

It was just Diana Ross who found herself in a chain reaction.  Thanks to the new beginnings for Daniel Lee at the helm of Bottega Veneta and the dawn of a new era and obsession for Philofiles aroud the globe, a chain reaction has commenced and it’s one that we’re haphy to watch unfold. After

Polka Face

Every cinderella has her glass slipper and every fairy tale should have a happy ending.  Four months ago I saw this magical heel on Ada Kokosar’s instagram and I could have happily swapped my night in shining armour for this baby along with all of my vital organs. If you don’t really know Ada it’s

The Battaglia Effect

It may just be a coincidence or perhaps even fate, but something was drawing me to Italy and it wasn’t just Venice. Sara Battaglia might be Giovanna Battaglia’s little sister (Editor in chief of Italian W mag and more infamously credited as being one of the worlds most papped street style stars) but she is

Floating On A Cloud

The 1st of October 2017 for me was not just any old birthday, it was also the day that I was honoured with the privilege of attending my first Céline show inside of the cloud like bubble installed at the Tennis Club of Paris. Late 70’s and early 80’s references featured strongly throughout the show, hitting […]

Geometric By Nature

It’s no secret that I’m a shoe girl, but in all honesty who isn’t?  Thankfully footwear is one part of our wardrobe that’s not negotiable, not that we needed any extra encouragement anyway. Thankfully as the female of the species we attract the added exception that footwear is an extension of our personality, I mean you don’t need […]

5 mid heel ankle boots

giveaway!

Hi everyone! This week has been slow start but I’m breaking away from talking about interiors for a moment because I have a fun giveaway for a $100 giftcard with Famous Footwear, which you can enter on Instagram by following me and @famousfootwear. Also because who doesn’t love/need shoes, right?

Giveaway lasts for 24 hours so go comment and good luck. :)

Socks are from COS and culottes from Zara.

Thank you to Famous Footwear for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.

5 minimal flats

Flats have become a staple in my wardrobe since becoming a mom. I used to love wearing heals before kids and didn’t mind enduring the pain or blisters because honestly I felt a bit more confident and appreciated the added height. It’s not that having kids means you can’t wear what you want, you just quickly see how some clothes, shoes can create extra work or slow you down, like heels.

Here are 5 minimal flats you can wear from now into Fall and no kids necessary. ;)

Boot Camp

You don’t need to be Dorothy from the Wizard Of Oz to prove that a good pair of shoes can change your life.  To be honest I’ve always been a shoe person, just take a look inside my wardrobe and you’ll see that if you’re anything like me, shoes take a priority over most things […]

rusty mules / this week’s reading material


This week has made caring out time to post a special struggle so for those who saw my blank scheduled post earlier this week I apologize! I will get that edited and reposted asap.
It took 2 days for me to even remember it was on the calendar and then seeing I had left it blank well, it just felt a little bit embarrassing! Regardless I’m back and while it’s been a little quiet on the blog the past few days I have some exciting news coming up from something I’ve been working for months on. I hate to leave you hanging but once I have proper photos and more details I will be sure to share them.

Last night my husband and I had some spare time alone, a very rare thing, so we went to the bookstore. I picked up the newest issue of Kinfolk and he had to have the ‘livability’ issue of Monocle. Then this morning my rust colored suede mules had arrived because we are going to LA next month and I just thought I needed these for the trip. Every time I travel there is this little voice telling me that something more than my usual “mom in sneakers” look is probably a good idea.

Along with the mules was a book I had purchased last week, Morandi’s Objects. I thumbed through it very quickly because sometimes buying a book online is a little like buying a box of chocolates but so far so good.

I’ve been reading fiction novels in the evening after the kids are in bed but during the day and when I’m in need of inspiration or just need something other than a sink full of bowls lined in oatmeal and little cups of leftover milk to look at, I try to keep my shelves stocked in artsy/design related printed materials. Also the cover is beautiful, so there’s that too.

workout gear basics / Reebok x FACE Stockholm

This week I tried hot yoga for the first time. It was brutal. I was a panting, slippery mess and the last 30 minutes my head was consumed with the thought of running out the room doors, down the stairs and to my care never to return again! I resisted though and endured until the bitter, sweaty, HOT end with not much more than a soaked towel, empty water bottle and blotchy red face to show for it.
After about 10 minutes though I started to feel pretty good and I’m going again (can you believe it?!) later this week.
I decided to try hot yoga after because I feel like I’ve plateaued. After having the kids and going through some rough personal things, I really packed on the pounds and haven’t felt at all like myself as a result. In January I started attending hour long interval training classes with 30 mins of cardio combined with 30 mins of strength training. I love it! It’s a one-stop-shop for the total body and I leave feeling exhausted but invigorated. Sadly though, after 6 months of these classes 3-4 times a week I’m just not seeing the progress I want. Not one to give up on the goal I have of resembling my post baby self I decided to try incorporating yoga one or twice a week. It’s too soon to report on any progress but if it goes well I’ll let you know.

When I’m really lacking in motivation to go I try to envision the way I want to look and feel, strong and healthy and lean. On bad days though, or weak days, I need something more and nothing motivates me like new workout gear (hello white yoga mat)! Nothing. So I treated myself to new shoes (which I actually really needed) which are a result of a Reebok & FACE Stockholm collaboration. They are in the faintest mint color with a sort of retro shape and I think I’m going to wear them around even when I don’t intend to work out.

I keep it very simple when I workout with a hair elastic and water bottle and sometimes my Nike Fuel + band. I also don’t wear any make up but I hate dry lips so I always, ALWAYS smear a bit of this La Bruket coconut oil lip balm on my lips. It’s so nourishing and light and smells wonderful. You can see it’s been well use as I’ve rubbed most of the label off now. Also these invisibobble hair fasteners work really well with my long wavy hair and don’t slip out mid run, which is actually a big deal for me.
Hopefully this will give you some good ideas for workout essentials which will in turn give you more motivation to power through your workouts!

High Line

Sometimes it takes a male’s perspective to highlight the beauty in the female form.  Think artists such as the Impressionist’s, even Henri Matisse for example, a modernist in his own right with a long affinity for bringing to light new ways of observing the female form.   In a more current setting and in my own opinion […]

Snake Oil

Breaking from the routine of owning 4000 pairs of black shoes, I must admit that I was proud of myself the other day when I came across these python beauties from Isabel Marant.  Not really what you’d call a colourful shoe, but with an A+ in the personality stakes all the way, the python ankle […]

Pyjama Party

Maybe it’s because of the lack of sleep that I’ve been having lately and thought of wearing a slinky silk 2 piece is just too good not to resist.  Or maybe it’s just the fact that only a designer with the sophisticated foresight of Kym Ellery could create a satiny twin set that would have us all […]

Grey Kicks

I have been wearing my Adidas kicks a lot in the past few weeks and I definitely haven’t tired of them yet. But when I saw these light grey sneakers I instantly fell in love. They still create the same who cares effect like the white Stan Smiths when combined
