I Fancy Friday v. 35 : For the Guys

Today is my husband's birthday {still funny calling Beau my husband} ! HAPPY BIRTHDAY Mr. Beau!!!! In honor of the handsome wonderful man in my life, I am dedicating this Friday's post to all things that I fancy for him. The week behind us is full of busy days and lots of work at night. This weekend ahead is for relaxing and a little birthday celebrating time. Happy Weekend! Happy Friday! 

1. Swingers Golf Club London - A golf bar is opening up in London! I don't golf, but this place sounds  super cool! Mr. Beau is going to LOVE this place. 

2. Breakfast Club - You can't beat a classic delicious breakfast more then pancakes with bacon and syrup at the delicious Breakfast Club. What guy doesn't fancy that? 

3. Bull Dog Sensitive Face Wash - Face Wash just for men, perfect. Mr. Beau loves to steal my eye cream so I think its time….he has his own guys line of grooming products;) The brand name is bull dog, that's cool. 

4. Scarfes Bar in the Rosewood London - This place is swanky and classy and serves a mean Manhattan, Mr. Beau {and my papa's} favorite! The room is decorated in a beautiful masculine library decor, the perfect spot for a pre dinner birthday drink. 

5. Headphones - I'm loving these stylish headphones with the stitched leather. On the gift list! 

6. Art of the Brick Exhibit - There is a new exhibit on Brick Lane all about ….LEGO'S! Yes, amazing sculptures full of Lego's. I was a Lego lover when I was little, as imagine a lot of you were, boys and girls. Fun lunch date during the weekend. 

7. Afternoon Tea at BRGR.CO - Last year I took Mr. Beau here for his birthday. Mini burgers and mini milkshakes. The place is small cozy, and it was delicious! 

8. Udderlicious Bourbon Carrot Cake Ice Cream - This is our favorite ice cream place near our flat. This months flavor would fit my birthday boys favorite thing list…bourbon, yum, with carrot cake! 

Happy Birthday Mr. Beau!!!!!!!! I can't wait to celebrate and fancy 101 more birthday with you!

Simple Soiree : Birthday Brunch in Bed

My birthday is less then a week away and if I can be honest, at this moment I fancy a morning in bed more then a late night out. Mr. Beau and I have been busy these past couple of weeks, getting home late, go go go. A morning with coffee, doughnuts, mimosas and magazines sounds like an indulgent celebration in its own. Maybe we will get dressed up and spoil ourselves with a fancy hotel bar cocktail, but truly, out all night, it is probably not going to happen this year…..and you know what, that is OK! Fun pjs and a birthday hat, that is what I am dreaming of, well, in bed on my birthday. 

A Birthday brunch in bed soiree sounds great to me!!!

Birthday Week: Birthday Cakes

September for me brings A LOT of birthday celebrations. From my birthday {yippee! next week!}, my husbands birthday, nephews birthday, brother in law and a lot of my besties birthday, the month of September is one big PARTY time! I have wonderful memories of celebrating my birthday with a big cake. Every year my mom would ask us a month before, "What type of cake do you want for your birthday?", my answers often varied as the years went by; angel food with my mom's 7 minute frosting, to a Dairy Queen Ice Cream cake or some classic homemade cupcakes. I truly feel that if you don't have a good piece of cake on your birthday, it isn't a birthday celebration at all! Below I have rounded up a few of my favorite cakes that I think would leave anybody SO excited to celebrate the next big year of their life. Happy Birthday all of you September babies!

The End of Summer

Summer 2014, a summer for me like no other. I know that summertime isn't officially over yet, however the first of September always makes me think of back to school and end of summer. This summer I watched one of my best friends get married, I married my bestest friend Mr. Beau, we travelled to Italy for our honeymoon, we visited gardens in London, ate lots of ice cream and gelato, visited wineries, planned events with beautiful blooms. OH my the list just goes on and on and on.  
I could post 500 of my favorite photos from the summer, but these are just a few that made me smile. From fancy dinners on our honeymoon, new restaurants in London, our first dance, to our wedding photographer's instagram pics. Summer 2014, thank you for being a roller coaster of emotions and also a heck of an amazing one. I will never forget you!

Working Women : Aneta Mak Photography

I am so excited to be sharing a little insight into the lovely and talented Aneta Mak's photography world today! I met Aneta when I first moved here to London, meeting up to chat with her about wedding business and our wedding. Unfortunately Aneta was already booked for our big day, however, I was so  glad to have met an amazing lady that day! Aneta's work is beautiful, her personality and professionalism is lovely and you can see it in the reflection of her photos, I truly love her dreamy images she captures  It has been a pleasure getting to know Aneta over the past year and I have to say, she is certainly well deserves that spot on Martha's top photographer list! As one heck of a working women, read on below to be 
inspired by her thoughts on business below! 

When did you start your business? 

I started in 2008 - although it never really felt like a "beginning", more a continuation - it always felt like a natural step to take after drawing for many years, with a focus on monochrome human portraits using chalks and pencils.
