Jumping for joy in Long Island!
On holiday with the parentals soaking up the last of the summer sun. Don’t want it to end.

Our wedding was featured on the front page of fashion blog, Refinery 29! When the photographer emailed Max and I this morning we tried to be really cool about it but ended up jumping round the kitchen hugging each other :-) 

Here’s to love…

"Tell your hairdresser she did a great job!"

Now that’s the kinda cat calling I like.

New Friends.

My new life in the USA started with a trip to a country retreat in rural Pennsylvania with these crazy people! Pancake-eating, lake-swimming, water trampoline-bouncing, chit-chatting, beer-drinking and volleyball-playing ensued. Meeting new people that will become great friends is an exciting feeling, one that doesn’t occur so regularly when you’re embedded in a close circle of friends in London. 

The first time we moved here we agreed that the pay-off for living in an amazing city and having great adventures was giving up really close friends. The kind of comfortable, old-sock kind of friends that you don’t really have to talk to but can just be with. This time around it feels different. Like we really belong and that we’re staying :-) 

The Little Prince.

I thought we went crazy about the royal baby but they’re releasing special collector’s editions over here! Felt strange to see a little slice of home sitting on a suburban supermarket shelf. You can take the girl outta England…

He’s the one.

Best. Photo. Ever.
Taken at Secret Garden Party the day after we got engaged. I thought these photos were taken on Abi’s camera and have been bugging her to get them developed for over a year. Then when I was tidying our room I found them with Max’s Holga photos. One of my fave things about this camera is how easy it is to double expose (i.e. take one photo, forget to wind it on and then take another photo over the top). It gives the resulting images this ethereal, dreamy, fantasy quality - which given the occasion - reflected my state of mind perfectly :-)
