Little details...

posted on: Sunday, 20 January 2013

Snow weekend! We've been housebound since Friday when making the trek to school seemed pointless! Cue: home cooking and sledging and bundling up with a gazillion layers. It never fails to amaze me how unprepared we Brits are for proper snow and what big news it is, when it comes. My facebook feed suddenly flooded with images of snowmen and snow angels.

So staying at home for an indeterminate time has for me, translated into internet browsing...and that in turn, has translated into retail lust for various items. I really must get a grip of myself; I thought January was about paring back? Not forging forward with more shopping after the Christmas excesses...

It's just those little details I love...the most simple of dresses. Golden nails, deep red lips. People you see from across a room who have some little detail; scarf or glasses - that make them stand out. Leopard shoes and quirky words. These are the things I covet.

It's started snowing again ;-)

  1. Beautiful Lou.....did you know that photo 3 is Natalie from Nat the Fat Rat, the NYC blog I mentioned a few months ago?

    Enjoy the snow! Xx

  2. It always comes down to the little things ~ it's like the proverbial cherry on top that makes us stop and go ~ yes! It snowed on and off here all day yesterday but not much for accumulation ~ it is going up to 7 today ~ we will think we can go to the beach! Happy Sunday.

  3. and now London is turning into a winter wonderland too.....time to bake a cake i think!!

  4. Have been enjoying your lovely blog for some time and now finally got round to starting my own! Thank you for the inspiration......

    Best wishes from snowy Kent.......

  5. Oh, I long for snow. The images are lovely!

  6. I totally know what you mean. I've been trying to stay off certain sites so I'm not tempted. We are down to one paycheck now and are really paring back. It's a transition for sure. Have fun in the snow!
