Styling with flowersWhat are you up to this weekend!?
I realised two days ago that while Mother’s Day is celebrated on 29th May in France, this Sunday, it’s Grand-Mother’s Day! So I’m taking my mum and Mila for a girls lunch at Les Pins Du Moulleau (if you come to the Bay of Arcachon, check it out, it’s a nice restaurant!).

Wishing all the mamas back in England, a happy Mother’s Day!

Here are some cool, fun links for you:

First time I see Karl Lagerfeld without his black glasses.

People often asked me where my vase is from…this one is very similar.

Beautiful people but I’m not sure I would enjoy the pressure.

I’m loving this jacket.

We had a tiny, super cute little mouse in the house. Here are some tips to repel them the natural way.

Would love these for Mila who is growing out of her current ones.

Totally in love with this Kids’ Spanish brand Little Creative Factory

Dune du Pyla, France. Voted 2nd best beach in the world by The Guardian. (C) Photography: Karine KöngWhat are you up to this weekend?
I’m driving Steve to the airport as he is off to join a friend in Argentina on a bike road trip. Travels are high on my priorities this year so when he asked me if he could do it and be away for 2 or 3 weeks, I was like “yes of course, go ahead, I wish I could come with you” but now it’s departure time, both of us are not looking forward to being apart from each other :-) Here are some cool, fun links for you:

The Dune of Pyla (above), which is near our holiday home in the Bay of Arcachon has been listed as the second best beach in the World out of 50 by The Guardian!
Here is an article in Sud-Ouest.

This video of David Beckham and James Corden cracked me up.

I love this hotel in Puglia through the lens of Carla Coulson.

Are you a hot skinny bowl fanatic?

I finally got around to read this long article and it was so interesting, such a different area isn’t it!?

Isn’t this hand-knit chandelier beautiful!?

Uncluttered and peaceful, dreamy bedroom. Read on www.karinecandicekong.comThank you for your wonderful comments on Instagram, the blog here and via email….really beautiful.

I read them all and thought maybe, this BODIE and FOU Interiors book I have postponed writing for the past three years due to lack of time, would be a nice project for next year…will see.
