Blow job

Friday morning in Selfridges beauty hall. The sheer luxury of having two people working on my hair at the same time, that's a first :-) They promise a 25 minute blow-dry - so watch this space!  Might even have enough time for a manicure too before the flight LOL!


I love the French candle company Diptyque, and yesterday I bought the large five wick Figuier 1500g candle, which has a 150 hours burn time (compared to the standard 190g size candle on the left in the picture), and should definitely last us through the upcoming festive Season.
It comes in a beautiful white ceramic pot which I no doubt will re-use for some nice plants :-)

Our weekend in pics

Pretty promenade!
 Strolling past beautiful mock-tudor houses as we're heading for lunch in nearby Little Venice on Saturday
Stopped for lunch outdoors under the heaters at Raul's - the perfect people watching spot!

Satisfied after our lunch we did some window shopping (mainly at estate agents) on Clifton Road W9

To Mum and Dad's amazement, Sean's current fave toy is this sword that we bought in the pound shop (yes for one pound only!)

These two - Awwww I'm lost for words... My heart nearly explodes watching them interact like here on the swings
Regent's park playground, where we went early Sunday morning

Our little jester, swinging and singing One Direction songs (he's obsessed LOL!)


Christmas has arrived on Marylebone High Street and the Conran shop, where I love to browse in to get ideas for our home, looked so pretty from the outside

After the playground and a long walk around the park we needed to defrost and have a well deserved lunch and coffee at Cote Brasserie, just off the high street. I indulged in a veal escalope and creamed spinach

 Last but not least - final pit stop at the local library where we borrowed as many as 10 new books for Sean to read himself, as well being read to him at bedtime

10 months old!

A little blurry pictures of Munchie from this afternoon

So, we're now in to double digits, TEN months old today! Scarlett Grace's personality is really emerging now, and it's wonderful to watch. She can now stand completely unaided for about 15 seconds, she waves when I ask her to, and claps when I say "klappa" (clap in Swedish). She's showing a desire of independence when it comes to eating as she insists to feed herself with solids. 
She goes down at 8pm every day without any fuss, and during night time we put a bottle of milk in her cot which she grabs herself and drink from as and when she please. That way we don't have to get up! 

In the last weeks or so she's been going trough the "stranger anxiety" phase or "man-fear" as I call it, as it's only ever with the masculine sex (although it isn't always restricted to strangers... could be a good friend or relative too!) - so much so that she could scream uncontrollably at a poor sod behind us in the grocery store queue! 

Needless to say, she continues to amaze me every day - she brings out my biggest smiles (like today when I found her sitting on Sean's bed - didn't know she could climb up there!) and melt my heart day in and day out

So, 24 hours in a kid free zone has just got underway (thanks Mum!) Late lunch at one of our faves - Dean Steeet Townhouse in Soho. Pumpkin soup, warm crusty bread and a spicy Bloody Mary to get the show on the road...

He's back!

Lil man beaming with pride as he's about to fly on his own for the very first time. 

Sean, 5 years and 11 months, took his first solo flight as an "Unaccompanied Minor" with SAS last Saturday from London to Copenhagen

Returning at Paddington yesterday, after spending his half term in Sweden with his Grandma. He absolutely loved it and wanted to travel home on his own too - however, my Mum was his travel companion on the journey back :-)

Food heaven

Bear nipped in to the food hall at Selfridges on his way home tonight to pick up some goodies for tonight's supper - a selection of freshly made salads including artichoke, prawns, sprouts and langoustine - my idea of food heaven!

Kiss and make up ;-)

All time favourite lip-gloss by Mac in the colour "Underage"

Early morning stroll

Summer time is officially over! The clocks went back one hour, so we took advantage by grabbing a cappuccino and heading to a very quiet Regents Park. Happy Sunday xx

Bus art

We noticed this colourful bus sculpture on the way to school the other day. It is TFL (Transport for London) that is celebrating 'The Year of the Bus' and they've had aspiring artists paint the iconic Routemaster bus all across the streets of London. This one is called "Come Rain or Come Shine" and is located on Edgware Road, W2.
