Sometimes, like everyone, I struggle to get going on the first day of the working week. So I decided it was time for some Monday inspiration, my first post each week will be a collection of all the things that inspired and made me happy the week before.A trip to Ladurée in Covent Garden to meet the lovely Natasha from Candy Pop. I had a pot of their indulgent hot chocolate, and got to try the cake I have swooned over so many times – the Rose Petal and Raspberry Religieuse. A pink iced treat of cream puff pastry, rose petal custard cream and raspberries. From the yummy candy coloured perfection of each individual macaron to the exquisite packaging, I just love every inch of the tiny pastel heaven that is Ladurée. I am determined to get there for a full afternoon tea on my birthday next year!After a couple more tea stops, Natasha and I made our way over to the Laura Ashley Christmas craft evening, where I swooned over sparkles, winter clothes, twinkling lights, cakes and festive home decor.Check out the glitter on this table cloth, I had to put down my glass of fizz to admire it’s sparkle, and while I was there, had a catch up with Tory Jane and make a floral crown.Inspired by all the pastel joy from my visit to Ladurée. I finally finished the last of my vintage lace archives. And just in time, as the very next day a super sweet someone form America emailed me and asked for one!This little lady was a complete devil – climbing up things and then slashing my hands to bits when I told her to get down, growling and swiping at poor little Wallis and then jumping in on photo shoots for the store, but here she is above – the picture of innocence.My new favourite scent for the bedroom Christy number 3, discovered when I added it to my bedside for an Autumn bedroom makeover last Friday, and a quick snap of a beautiful vintage tutu spotted in Butlers Emporium yesterday.
