Mondays Muse | Sade Adu


No Ordinary Love.


“ I always said that if I could just find a guy who could chop wood and had a nice smile, it wouldn’t bother me if he was a thug or an aristocrat. As long as he was a good guy, and I’ve ended up with an educated thug.”

Bon Weekend


After a long week, the weekend begins on Friday night starting with a long hot bath, to wash away the stress and refresh yourself. Sleep in on Saturday morning and then have coffee in bed, while catching up on some reading materials of course. Feeling inspired to bake something delicious and satisfy the sweet tooth all weekend? I can see this mouthwatering lemon tart in my near future. Put on your best worn in jeans and a pair of sneakers, and do a little Sunday wandering. Most importantly of all, only surround yourself with the things you love.

Plain White T | Casual Chic


I’m not entirely sure if it’s the heat that is getting to me, or just the lazy vibe of summer itself. Most likely it’s a combination of both, but all I want to wear these days is a white t-shirt and jeans (preferably a loved pair of vintage 501 button down levi’s). This casual chic ensemble is perfect for a Sunday brunch outing, followed by some treasure hunting plans and a little adventurous wandering perhaps?Black leather converse and leather ray ban wayfarer frame sunglasses! I am definitely swooning over the chic spin on these classic pieces. The black leather backpack might even come in handy as a stylish shopping or camera bag. Boom.
