The weekend

I LOVE 4 day weekends! Four days off with lots of sunshine allow for some lovely moments around the city, we "discovered" new places to take our Sunday shoots, had a bike ride in a deserted almost city, enjoyed non stop the sun (amazing!) and had the chance to meet the lovely Monica from Beauty Parler among many other stuff. How was your weekend lovelies?


London is all dolled up for the big day next Friday


Fruit salad for breakfast, best way to start the long weekend


Under the rain, yes a quick shower, at Sloane Square tube station. Loved the green


Mind the Gap people. Clearly


Lusting after beautiful bridal shoes by Aruna Seth with lovely Monica from Beauty Parler


Coke and champagne? You gotta love the holidays!


and red eggs for Easter! Thanks George and Alex for having us, we had a lovely time!


Bikes, new fave!


Swedish Hasbeens for H&M, in red, very last pair in my local shop.
