Home: French Bedroom Company

DSC_2759a

 The French Bedroom Company is the brainchild of Georgia Metcalfe, a girl with a passion for French style who wanted to bring quintessential chicness to the UK. If you are lucky enough to be in West Sussex you can drop by the luscious boutique, or you can delve inside Georgia’s world online. As you know I have an eye for anything luxurious and quirky so The French Bedroom Co is a homewear mecca for me. I could honestly kit out my entire home with their wonderful offerings, but until then here is a little corner dedicated to their wares. What better way to brighten up an empty nook in the hallway than this handsome ceramic moose – he is dressed to impress for Christmas with his baubles.

 Lighting the way is this urban metal work arrow lamp, it runs on batteries so no need to scramble for a wall socket. When we move this will light the way to the shoe room, but for now it signals the way across the hall. Completing the trio is the My Deer candlestick, it is incredible detailed with a row of stags surrounded by little acorns and foliage.

All in all I have to say this has brightened up the hallway in more ways than one. Should you be looking for some beautiful homeware from chaises to chairs, a classic throw or an edge piece of wall art, even a gift for someone special, with something for all budgets you should take a look at The French bedroom Co.

Outfit: Ash Jalouse Boots

I know I joke about ‘blogger items’, you’ve all seen it, the same items which keep cropping up on everyone’s blog. These Ash Jalouse boots are one of them, I can’t tell you how many outfit posts, reviews and posts raving about them I’ve seen. I was looking for an easy to wear pair of black boots to wear this winter and kept coming back to the Jalouse. They came, I wore them and I basically haven’t stopped wearing them for two months straight! Now I can clearly see why so many people rave about them, they really are perfect. Perfect heel height, impossibly comfy, go with everything. What more can I say? I am obsessed with them, so obsessed I’m currently plotting getting a back-up pair for when these wear out. They come in a few different colour ways, these are the distressed black suede. I have mostly been wearing them with jeans and jumpers but they look amazing with dresses and even dungarees. As they are quite low cut I think they would work well as summer boots too – yeah totally trying to justify that second pair…

Hello!!!!!!!! For those of you following on Social Media you will know that sadly I’ve been unable to blog recently due to the servers being hacked. This has been an absolute nightmare, especially at the point where we thought over 6 years of blog posts were lost forever. Luckily we have been able to get back online and fingers very tightly crossed the problem is well and truly over. We are currently running on a version of Beta so please bear with us whilst we iron out the last few glitches. Thanks you so much to everyone for sticking with us through all of this, your support really has kept me going. We are back and will soon be better than ever :)

Lots of love,

New Birthday Shoes – Customised Converse

It’s my birthday and because I am super spoilt I got these amazing customised leopard print Converse from my beloved. Since moving to Sheffield and all its hilly glouriousness I rediscovered by appreciation of a good pair of Cons. I don’t think I will ever get over my leopard print obsession and since I know some of you will be lusting after this pair I went searching for other cool leopard print trainers. This lace-less pair of KEDS Champions are really gorgeous and my top pick.

Since October is my birthday month and Halloween I always enjoy it, there are flashing ghosts and pumpkins in my windows already! I’ve packed away the summer clothes and have been rediscovering warmer clothes, coats and boots. Here are a few things I’ve been wearing whilst the weather changes but I don’t think we will get to enjoy autumn for all that long, its getting colder far to fast. You might notice here that I’ve had the little tribal tattoo on my foot covered up by a larger piece – will post about that soon.

Winter Converse

After musing over a winter update for my beloved Cons last post I decided to go for this pair. They are the Converse All Star Hiker in black leather with bright blue laces and I have to admit it was the laces that really sold them to me! The Hiker style is also available in brown leather with red laces. The eyelet style loops add an extra update to the classic All Star. As you can see here I got them just in time for the rotten weather, I was really grateful to have them yesterday in the torrential rain. I gave them a quick spray with leather protector and they kept my feet dry and ankles warm.  They felt a bit tighter than regular canvas Cons when I first put them on, but I wore them with thick socks and soon felt the leather giving throughout the day, I am sure they will be just as comfy as my old ones. I just have the job now of digging out all my winter jumpers, coats, boots and scarves now winter is well on its way.

Comfy Cons

I’ve become utterly attached to my Cons this summer – before this pair I hadn’t worn any since I was a teenager and had forgotten my affection for them. As autumn draws in I’m sad they will have to be put away from the cold and rain that will surely come soon. There is hope however as Converse have introduced many new styles in darker colours, leather and harder wearing all terrain boots. If they are as comfy as the classic All Stars then they have me sold! Will let you know which ones I opt for but the leather Hiker are a firm favorite along with the Star Player. Let me know if you have tried the new styles and what you think of them?
