Pillows & Peonies

Top: H&M // Joggers: Aerie 

Since our new sofa arrived I have loved nothing more than to curl up in the corner, surrounded by pillows and dressed in the comfiest pieces! It's the perfect spot to unwind after a day at work and having fresh peonies on the coffee table makes this space in more inviting. 
Now I just need to find a rug to help make this space extra welcoming. Every one I have liked so far has been sold out in a size that would work with our sofa, so please leave your favourite rugs that you think would work with my sofa in the comments below!

Bella Turns One

Our little girl turned one earlier this month, how did that happen?! It seems like only yesterday we were bringing her home to live with us.

Now you all might think I am crazy (my friend's all think I am, they told me so) but I decided to have a little party to celebrate Bella's 1st Birthday. Really it was just an excuse for us all to eat cake, but I wanted to celebrate because no one know what life has planned for them, so I believe we should celebrate as much as we can in life and I certainly won't have the chance to throw a first birthday party for anyone else anytime soon. 

Bella had her own cat cake made with tuna and LOVED chasing the balloons around the house. We thought as soon as she managed to pop one that would be the end of that but she doesn't care in the slightest when they burst. She's still playing with them now. 
My sister made the sweetest cake for the party and even moulded a little Bella for the top, which I cannot bring myself to eat haha! 

This past year Bella has brought so much joy into our lives every single day and we couldn't image life without her.

Insta Outfits

Nordstrom Tank // SheIn Skirt // Ann Taylor Belt // Nordstrom Hat // Gap Bag

Nordstrom Tee // Scarf from Positano // Bracelet from Venice 

 J Crew Dress {old} // Bag from Venice 

Dorothy Perkins Dress {old} // Gap Bag

The weather has finally started to warm up here, which is why I didn't get any posts up last week, I didn't want to spend my time staring at a computer screen after work when I could be outside in the sunshine! 

I have got two more post coming up this week for you though that I had planned for last week and I also thought I'd share a round up of some recent outfits I have worn. I've been wearing a lot of dresses  this month and I've paired most of them with this hat and this bag from my April Faves post. They are both great basic pieces that will pair with just about anything in a summer wardrobe!

First Peonies of 2018

Happy Wednesday. I just thought I would brighten up today for you all with some snaps of these beautiful peonies. I mean I can't stop staring at them and they smell divine too! You all understand why I keep staring at them right?! 
These are my first peonies of 2018 and they came from my best friend's mum's garden, she has the best peony plant! I look forward to having some of these in my home every year because I haven't found any that smell as good as these.
When we moved into our house last summer we planted six of our own peony plants and 5 of them currently have tiny little buds on them, I have everything crossed that at least one will bloom.
