Pretty In London: Made In Chelsea

 

Chelsea – the people are posh and the streets are lush!! What an amazing area and one of my absolute faves. As you explore these magnificent streets you are immediately surrounded by the cosmopolitan and casual atmosphere, seemingly lost in a swirl of trendy boutiques and perfectly polished homes. For those of you who have been it may bring back memories of Cannes, which happens to be Chelsea’s ‘Sister City’!! With this eclectic mix of cute shops, boutiques and majestic homes, you can literally have the best of social and home within less than a mile of each other. Take a walk down some of the side streets, go off that beaten track and your sure to find some hidden gems; here are some of the hot spots we found as we embarked on our latest adventure one quintessentially British rainy Saturday:

Enjoy xx

Pretty little balconies along gorgeous white homes seem to be a dream.

It’s almost a thing in London to have a bold statement colour on your front door <3

Perfectly sculpted gardens are a dime a dozen.

I feel in love with the streets <3

The lovely Borough of Chelsea

The ivy intertwined on some of these homes is simply stunning.

This street was absolutely adorable with its cottage style homes, I felt I was away in the country.

Two very cute cottage style homes. Absolutely adorable <3

My favourite part of the day was finding these gorgeous Hydrangeas in one of the cottage gardens. #Dreamy

As you can see I’m a very happy girl. Hydrangeas are my favourite flower and happen to be my wedding flower. 🙂

This stunning shop is all kinds of mouth watering. I highly recommend checking it out for the sweet lover.

I’m not normally a coffee drinker but I couldn’t resist this latte. Venchi makes there own Ice Cream and coffee can you believe it! The Ice Cream is out of this world delicious, you can literally taste the freshness.

Got Milk!??? 😉

How cute is the decor!? It’s like something out of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! 🙂

I think I fainted and went to candy heaven! 🙂

SCRUMPTIOUS!!!! 🙂

Baywater Street – This is literally colour wonderland. It’s all kinds of pretty.

I choose you Ms Pink! <3 <3 <3

These two houses were definitely my top two favourites. The bright colours are all that and more.

A little bit of the country in the city can’t hurt nobody. xx

After a day of exploring and constant photographing he never once complained. Am I blessed or what! <3

If you guys have any other places in London you’d like us to check out and review let us know!! We would love to add to our growing list and let you know what we discover… xx

Birthday Things

To me birthdays are one the most special events of a persons life, it’s a great time to remember who you are in Christ. You are unique you are fearfully and wonderfully made – how amazing is that!! I don’t know about you but that thought alone puts me in awe. We are so precious to the Lord that He decided to create us in His very own image. I would like to invite you to just sit and ponder that for a moment. What does this mean to you? What is He saying about you?

Here are a few shots from my recent birthday. Enjoy x

My wonderful man surprised me with some of my favourite flowers wrapped up in a beautiful bundle.

So in love with this bouquet I had to take another picture so you can see gorgeousness of the flowers! 🙂

Who doesn’t love a bit of birthday cake.

Happy girl 🙂

 

A Brides Journal: The Traditional Wedding

Dress: Designed by Anointing Fashion Design, Earrings: Le Chateau

2 weddings down and 1 to go! We just had our traditional Ghanaian Wedding and it was AMAZING!!

Its 8am I’m awake bright and early…my heart filled with that mix of anxiousness and excitement – you know what I mean ladies. I could feel the sun shining on my face as I lay there and could smell the delicious aroma of the dishes my mother was preparing downstairs (nothing will ever beat mommas home cooking). Not knowing what the day held I jumped out of bed and slipped into something comfortable.

As I proceeded down the stairs the railings were decorated with pink and white balloons, streamers and ribbons at every corner, there were chairs draped with neatly placed and beautiful white covers. The room was perfect.

With the party starting at 1pm and guests arriving from 12:30 I had limited time to get my hair and makeup done!! You know that sense of panic when you just have so much to do…well that was me. Luckily my amazing cousin B was on hand to do what can only be described as a beautiful job with my hair and makeup. With that done and laughing with my girls…I waited to be presented to my handsome groom.

The wedding turned out to be wonderful and emotional, considering I was a bit reluctant to go through with it when my parents had initially mentioned it, I was absolutely thrilled.  Mike and I were separated till it was time for me to enter. He came down to greet my extended family and when the time was right my sister and cousins brought me down for the big reveal.

It was a beautiful day full of love, family and friends and with the love of my life by my side and God at the centre everything perfectly came together.

Here are a few photos from the day! Hope you enjoy! xx

London In Bloom

When the rose bush attempts to pull you in 😉 lol…admiring these beautiful pink Roses in full bloom just off Lavender Hill in Clapham

This city is absolutely gorgeous and I’m making it my mission to capture just some of it’s beauty this summer.

You just have to walk a little off the beaten track and you will fined yourself immersed in the gorgeous displays of flowers and ivy that intertwine so many of London’s homes.

This summer I will take you on a journey of just a few of these hidden gems as I wander London’s streets with my trusty cameraman. I would love for you to join me…enjoy!!
