My favourite looks with a biker leather jacket

It took me about 6 weeks to realise that the biker leather jacket I searched high & low for weeks in our home in London, was in one of our cupboards in France where I had left it last time I came down. I haven’t got this commuting between London and France quite sorted out yet :-) So I’m gonna wear mine today with leather trousers and since a lot of you loved the biker jackets I featured on yesterday’s post, Instagram and Facebook, I’ve put together my favourite looks for you below.

5 THINGS I WANT RIGHT NOW! 30/01/2015

5 things I want right now!

How are you doing guys? I had a pretty tough week, mostly because our site has been experiencing technical issues and for an online shop, it’s never good news but I’m trying to keep my spirits up by focusing on my fitness goals. I went for a run yesterday and felt sooo good afterwards, sport is really salvation. It doesn’t solve everything but it really helps you to handle stress in a much better way. I hope you’re still very focused on your goals too. Don’t give up! Just focus on one day at the time and trust the process. If you eat clean and exercise daily (be it an intense cardio circuit, a walk, a run or yoga), just make sure you make it part of your lifestyle. Eventually it will pay off and think how much fun we will have wearing all the things we want or look at our wardrobe without ever thinking “this doesn’t fit me”   1/ Out of the 5 THINGS I WANT RIGHT NOW! this week is, this fabulous leather jacket. …

LOOKBOOK# 1

Hi guys! I worked on the shop until 2am on Thursday so stupidly, I was too tired to do my weekly 5 Things I want right now! fashion post. However, the great news is that I’m starting a new mini series called LOOKBOOK#, which will be a series of stylish looks I love/wear/covet true to my style (also on Pinterest here).

Design updates in our lounge | Renovations

One thing I was looking forward to doing once the renovations* were over, was to re-do my family B&W mood board. You may have seen the original one in Bolig magazine here, VT Wonen here, Elle Decoration here and Milk magazine here. If you are using masking tapes, it’s a very easy project to do and one that I find very uplifting and versatile. Ultimately I want to make a family mood board out of all the smiling family photos we have. I realised when I put this montage together how amazing it made me feel to look at Mila‘s infectious smile over and over but I haven’t got around to print them all so for now I’m using printed photos I had. It’s also a great, creative project if you rent a space and you don’t want to damage the walls.

Bobo Choses SS 2015 Collection

One of my favourite brands to dress Mila is BOBO CHOSES (available at Elias and Grace in the UK and Smallable in France). I’ve watched them growing from a small indie brand in 2008 into a beloved worldwide brand and each season, their collection fills me with joy and inspiration. I would love to style their collection once and I really wish they would do some of their sweatshirts for women too!

5 ways to display green plants at home

I have enjoyed doing this post so much last year that I think it’s time for another one. The large plants that I got a few months ago (photo 3) is still very much alive and looks beautiful and I’m keen to get more. Plants make a home such a happy, vibrant place don’t you think?
