I just wanted to introduce to you the next addition to my little apartment! The most delightful 1950's formica kitchen table and chairs. I had been on the search for awhile now, and since i wanted something in great condition, only a four seater and not at a crazy price i waited..and waited!
The most kind faced gentleman with the sweetest grin dropped it off to me and said it was the table he had as a young boy in his mothers kitchen, he had alot of happy memories around that table and i promised him that i would take great care of it and surround it with friends and much love to continue the happy memories.
My little apartment is slowly coming together and i love that all the items in my place have their own story, i know where it came from the travels they have endured and how much joy they would have brought to their provious owners. Sometimes having brand new things are a fresh slate to start your own story about how they mesh with your life but i prefer to surround myself with an abundance of history..i feel i almost have a responsibilty to care for them and ensure their story continues...and so on..and so on!

Some days i wake up and i honestly cant be bothered rolling my hair or picking an outfit, i am also still waiting for that Chanel automatic eye makeup applicator from 'The Fifth Element' to be available (its never going to happen...is it?..sigh) but on days like this if its cold enough i just throw on my cape and be done with it! It is still one of my most favourite pieces i have collected so far, i am sure it would tell me some incredible stories if it could talk and it is in need of some new buttons (which i am sourcing) but the lining is still amazing so it still has many cold mornings and rain to dodge with me in the future!
I am going to a pre-screening of The Internship tonight i do love me some Owen Wilson so hopefully its not a complete flop! Happy Wednesday! Xx

I made myself a promise to have an extremely lazy weekend to give not only my purse a break but to catch up on some much needed cleaning and reading. (i clearly love to live life on the edge huh!)
I did venture out to have a few wines for a friends surprise 30th where i ate way too much and burned a few holes in tablecloths..(i am not to be trusted with sparklers) but sunday was reserved for Sadie!
Although the boring cleaning was helped with cider, loud Jazz music and experimenting with new hair styles in between, Id have to say this is a messy version of a "Betty Grable eat your heart out" hairstyle and actually took me all of ten minutes to throw together! Must have been having a good hair day.
Im thinking this might be a good one for a tutorial one day!
I hope you all had a swell weekend! Xx
