The Sunday R&R

Happy Sunday one and all!  After an exclusive date with my niece at a pool party yesterday afternoon, she is that soo adorable age of 2, I am up with the larks today with the help of my new espresso machine.  Okay it is just a machine, but my Nespresso is my new best friend (sure there will be as many espresso instagram images as cats soon) so thank you for all the recommendations that you sent in, I followed the magority with my new Nespresso Pixie machine.

But this is not the coffee weekly so back to The Sunday R&R and on Monday I started the week with a fabulous DIY vintage wedding from Rhone Alpes region in France that is soo full of beautiful details and decoration ideas, it was hard to choose which ones to publish.  See full real wedding Rhone Alpes.


Fresh faced from my trip to the French Riviera it seemed only fitting that on Tuesday our inspiration board is Riviera based, with a Gatsby Wedding Style board from Fabienne Slater at Elian Concept Weddings and Events.

The hot weather that we have been having in the UK makes me thinks of tropical climates and in particular watermelons.  I love watermelon to eat, as a refreshing drink and the colour!
