Friday's Fancies

Before I started blogging I rarely ever took my DSLR out with me. The only times I could justify lugging the heavy black device around was if I were on holiday or at a special event. These days I am rarely ever an arm's reach from my trusty camera. Thus is the beauty of blogging, it has forced me to rethink how I go about my day. I hope you're enjoying my friday's fancies series as much as I enjoy putting them together. Here are some fun snaps from this week. Enjoy!


Wearing breton stripes with red lacquer nails while packing away an entire box of macarons. I should probably take note from the French and practice that whole "eat in moderation" thing they're so well known for. 



I'm not sure if Monsieur Hermes would approve of me using his fine silk scarves to cover my unwashed messy hair. But I'm thankful for beautiful accessories like these that turn any bad hair day into an excuse to wear head scarves. 



Notice how the red light and red clock hands speak to each other? The best part was finding out that the clock was intentionally not working so the hands could remain in the vertical position. It's little details like this that reflect the true character of people and places. 



There's something about walls covered in greenery that I just adore. They remind me of old palace grounds and fairy tales. I especially love how this building is an old warehouse and is as far removed from fairy tales as can be. Little things like this just brightens my day.  



How adorable are these succulents! I think I may have found the perfect Christmas present. These little bag plants are original, unique and oh so lovely. I even feel inspired to try and diy these (which rarely ever happens when there's sewing involved).

Love the plants-in-a-bag; so frickin' cute.

I need to get better about taking my camera with me. Or at least getting a point-and-shoot to haul around. I'm terrible about it. Because I'm lazy.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Fabulous pictures Jenee! Scarves are so IN and will be! They showed many of them on the runways for SS13. LOL at your Hermes comment! Well at least you're having a bad hair day in STYLE. Looks great on you! I love macarons! Have yet to try a Laduree one, so I can only wish and imagine :) Have a delightful weekend and definitely use that camera more. I need to do the same!

Haha, I've been taking my DSLR around with me as well - although I'm still a little self conscious to whip out this monster camera in public since I get quite a few odd looks when I do. But the photos are so worth it! Love the macaroons shot you got. Mmmm, looks so good :)

Lovely scarf tied in your hair- that's one of my favorite ways to tie an Hermes scarf:) Lovely post.

Peach Macarons said...

You take such gorgeous photos! I was wondering if you would mind sharing what camera you use. I've seen the shot of you holding your Nikon but wasn't sure what model you are using?? I've spent the last couple of days in camera shops asking for advise on what DSLR to buy and I'm totally confused and overwhelmed! x
