Hello, Weekend!

1/27/2012


Alexa & I swapped places today so she could share her gorgeous Friday's Fancies post. I decided I would keep with her tradition and post a travel photo from my own archives, because what better way to start the weekend than wanderlust?

This photo was taken during a day trip to London when I studied abroad at Oxford. London quickly became one of my favorite cities (and I don't think I'm alone here) on day trips with Jacqueline, during which we'd shop on Portabello Road, wander around Notting Hill, stop into Top Shop (the one in Piccadilly has a vintage section!), drink hard cider and visit the Tate Modern.

Without further ado, here are this week's links:

Alexa & I can't wait to meet fellow southern California bloggers here next weekend.

If I were taking a trip this weekend, I'd love to pack my things in this sparkly weekender, spotted on SIX TWELVE PLACE.

Speaking of sequins, stripes and sequins recently celebrated its second birthday! Congrats Grace!

Did you see this baked potato bar over on A CUP OF JO? Our friends Michelle & Tommy had one at their engagement party but instead of baked potatoes it was mashed potatoes - served in martini glasses!

Speaking of delicious-ness, Marissa over on the boot recently visited a croissant factory. Let the drooling ensue!

Have a lovely weekend, and don't forget to enter this giveaway!

P.S. Courtney of suttonrow won our Rifle Paper Co. giveaway and posted this photo of her calendar. Loving her clutches and chic storage!

I love London! I'm lucky as I live in the UK I get to go there quite a lot when I can afford it!

Portabello Road is amazing. I also love the massive Topshop- I could spend hours in there!

Have a fab weekend!
