One of the great things about living in Notting Hill is having Portobello Road right on my doorstep! I love browsing the vintage shops and markets to get inspiration for fashion and home design ideas. A few weeks back I went on a little explore with the fabulous Faye from Fashion Found to see what treasures we could find and we got a little snap happy with our cameras…
Like just about every other woman in the world, I admit that I am currently hooked on the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy books! The novels which originally began as “Twilight” fan fiction have now become one of the best selling books of the year with over 10 million copies sold so far. The first book in the series; 50 Shades of Grey has actually made E.L. James the first author to sell more than one million copies via Kindle! After hearing so much about these books; the curious side of me just had to know what they were all about….
My inner goddess just couldn’t resist getting in on the action looking for gorgeous men who I think should play the sexiest, richest, hottest guy on the planet ;)
♥ Ryan Gosling. I think it is fair to say that I love me some Ryan Gosling any day! Ryan oozes sexyness, cheekiness and has got the smoldering eyes thing pat down. Just think a mix of his characters from Crazy, Stupid Love & Drive to channel Mr Grey plus we all know this guy can rock a suit!
After a few glasses of champagne it was definitely time for dinner. Luckily, we had a booking for the amazing Brasserie Thoumieux which is by top French chef Jean-François Piège.
Last year for my birthday two of my lovely friends got me some Chanel makeup as a present (see my birthday presents post here). All my friends know me well enough to know that with a gift like beautiful makeup they pretty much can’t go wrong ;)
