I LOVE CAROUSEL :: BY THE SEA


Summer weather in England: sporadic, humid and sometimes hot, but always welcome. Although it doesn't happen often, news that a heatwave is making its way to our shores brings summertime plans, because inevitably it won't last long. With a spell of unusually warm weather forecast, and a Carousel dress just begging to be worn, John and I planned a mid-week evening at the seaside. As you know, I'm already a fan of Carousel clothing so where better to visit wearing a nautical dress than picturesque Lytham?

TOP 3 PLACES TO GRAM AN INSTA' WORTHY BREAKFAST IN BERLIN

It's almost a month since I returned from Berlin, but it feels like so much longer. For me, Berlin is a city that feels homely. I love roaming its familiar streets, in each of its iconic areas, and it's no surprise that it's one of my favourite place to write about! John and I have visited so many times. but despite this, every visit uncovers somewhere new for us to enjoy.

ENGLISH SUMMER RAIN


Always stays the same, nothing ever changes,
English summer rain, seems to last for ages.
English Summer Rain, Placebo

We're tricked into the illusion of an English summer when the calendar reads July and we awaken to find rooms bathed in sunlight. Inevitably though, the dark clouds roll in and our illusions are shattered. Torrential rain, roads flooding. Each and every year, it's the same. Can you believe these images were captured only hours after rain caused severe flooding and disruption?

WIMBLEDON IS HERE!

For me, it truly feels like summer's arrived when Wimbledon begins, even though it usually rains! Did you know it's the oldest tennis tournament in the world and the only major one played on grass? It's not surprising that a tournament started in 1877 is steeped in tradition: players must adhere to an all-white uniform, players are referred to by title and a member of the Royal family has attended since 1907. I look forward to Wimbledon and of course, consuming Pimms and strawberries and cream! This year, I thought I'd take my love of Wimbledon a step further with Emily and Fin's 'Anyone for Tennis?' dress.
