Today was the happiest day of the year as Prince William married his Kate Middleton at the Westminster Abbey. Shirin, my mum and I were invited, not to the wedding, but to my Stepbrother and his man's for a televised celebration and Afternoon tea. The pictures I have taken are of the BBC broadcasting and aren't great but Ilike them ;-)
Dress: Vintage at Beyond Retro on Great Marlborough Street, necklace and earring: Tiffany&Co, rings: Links of London, shoes: River Island
The boys preparing for the Afternoon tea-feast :-) We had a fabulous time!!! Today has been a day of love and it should be celebrated as it is a positive thing :-)
It is also my cousin Jenni's birthday, so happy birthday hope you have had a great day...

The Royal Wedding

We had a great day in Paris until I looked at our tickets
and realised my fuck-up!!! I had booked our return tickets for the 27th of May, a month form now!!!!!
We spoke to Eurostar and they said we had to pay close to 800 Euros to come home the smae night. I called Husband in panic and crocodile tears!
We decided that we need to go home that night, that was our biggest mistake! We took a taxi to Calais, a three hour journey and 440 Euros bill. My card was declined, I called the bank and Husband again in tears and in panic. He managed to pay the taxi over the phone and we could check in to the hotel he had booked for us. Took the ferry int hemorning to Dover and then the train from Dover to London and then the tube home. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong!!! In the end we had a good time in Paris and we got home safe. I had to work yesterday and I was sooooo tired. The only sleep I got was 2 hours at the hotel (woke up by my snoring mother) adn then an hour on the ferry.
Not very comfortable. When I think back, the obvious choice was to pay the 800 Euros adn get home the same night, but in panic you make stupid, stupid mistake. If I didnt know how amazing my Husband is before, I sure as hell know it now :-) He just dismissed it as a blonde moment and got us home safe :-)

I'm not as tired as I thought I'd be. We got up at 3am and the taxi picked us up at 3.30am (Addison Lee is very reliable) and got to St Pancras at 4. Had a small breakfast in Costa and are now on the 5.25 train to PARIS :-) My mum (who is next to me in the picture looking like she has never seen a camera before) and Shirin have never been to Paris. We will arrive just before 9am and the train back is at 9pm, so we have 12 hours to do Paris, think we have enough time? Ill blogg later and probably tomorrow, have a good day Xoxo

He came back at 4.30 this morning and then went to work at 9-ish again and won't be home until tonight. I have done some tidying and laundry. The weather has been really nice but I haven't been in the garden as I burn in the sun :-( When I unpacked Husband's suitcase I found a nice surprise
A lovely Bulgari perfume :-) We have this little tradition that when he goes away without me he always buys me a perfume. I think it is cute and romantic, but this I time I didn't expect anything as he paid for the ring I got in Swarovski. I have tried it on and it smells divine :-)
Yesterday before bed I tried on this new nailvarnish
It's the silver that is new. I just painted it over the Ocean Breeze varnish I got from Revlon and the silver dried almost immidiately, what do you think? I think it looks quiet cool, used it on my toes as well.
I believe that is all for now. I hope you have had a lovely Easter. Are you going to watch the Royal Wedding on Friday? They start broadcasting at 6am, but I'm not getting up that early. We will go to my stepbrothers to watch it from 10.30 and then have afternoon tea, really looking forward to that :-) I have a dress and everything ;-)

This morning (early afternoon) Shirin and I went to Le Pain Quotidien on Marylebone high street for breakfast/lunch=brunch :-) I had a chicken salad, carrot juice and olives and Shirin had a salmon plater, yummy food.
Off to Selfridges for some make up for Shirin and a pair of earrings for me from Mikey
and a lovely ring Swarovski :-) We did go to my work for that ring, didn't buy it in Selfridge's
Then  off to Kula on James street in St Christopher's place for icecream. It's a Swedish place that also makes waffles and has a small selection of food. It is a cute place :-)
The sun made us both really tired so instead of going to the park as planned, we went home and sat in the garden :-) Cheaper and so much more comfortable...
My look for the day is very Carrie inspired and summer-y
The dress is vintage and bought in Beyond Retro in Stockholm, I think the belt and corsage are both from H&M, the shades are Ray-Ban from 1995...
Happy Easter and hope you enjoy the weekend :-)

Todays look: Vintage dress from Beyond Retro, cardigan by H&M and ballerinas from Primark
This is the vintage Beyond Retro dress I bought last week and had the zip changed straight away. Going to wear at the Royal Wedding afternoon tea reception at my Stepbrothers next Friday with big hair aka the Carrie bun and high heels...
New Perfume scented nail varnish by Revlon and eyeshadow by Rimmel
I am now off work for three days in a row :-) Going to the park with Shirin tomorrow after a small shopping spree at Swarovski. Going to try the new eyeshadow tomorrow and if it isn't too strong I'll wear it during the day and will of course show you what it looks like on...
Have a fabulous evening

Today's outfit and re...

Blouse: Primark and skirt is by H&M. Pink is my colour, it suits me really well. I found this skirt in H&M but was never very comfortable in it until now. I didn't really know what to match it with until last night when I had a eureka moment ;-) wore it with gold ballerina's from Primark. It has been really sunny and warm today but I get easily cold and I have to wear tights at work if I wear a skirt or a dress, so today I was comfy... Waiting for my dinner to be ready. I am starving and I have absolutely nothing to write about! Hope you have a great evening. Only 6 working days left for me and 4 days until Husband is back!! And my mum comes to London in exactly a week! Lots of things to look forward to...
