Dogs in London

I get a lot of comments and questions when we have Sir Oliver out and about in London. Oh right, in case you do not know {hello! he is like our son!} #siroliveruk is my 4 1/2 year old Australian Shepherd. Our dog gets pretty out and about in the city and last night when we were on the tube with him and the girl next to him commented "If I was a dog I would totally want you as parents. Posh dog, lucky guy." haha. The comment totally made me laugh. It got me to thinking how often we have people comment that it is great how many places we can take him, how we do bring him everywhere, how often people email me and ask me about moving their dogs to the UK. I thought a little blog post about having a dog in the London would be a fun thing to share and hopefully a bit of advice for some of you. Moving Sir Oliver to London is still one of my highest viewed posts. So here goes, a little London dog owner advice:

I Fancy Friday v. 52

Maybe it is still because it is the beginning of the year. My days are filled with tons of to-do's to check off the list, lots of goals and plans for the days ahead and maybe that is why the week has flown by. Whatever way it is, I'm glad to see it is FRIDAY! yay! We have plans for the weekend to head to see some of the Lumiere festival in London, check out a spot I've been DYING to try {hopefully!} and finally check out the big movie, Star Wars and squeeze in some relaxing time. Over the past week I have found so many amazing things around the Internet and wanted to share. The things I fancy...happy Fancy Friday everyone. Have a nice weekend! 

1. Did you see Mish Bush over on Love My Dress! WOW! The article she wrote is amazing and her engagement pictures are pretty absolutely stunning! {image by Nick Turner}

2. Baby Girl Shower - Sarah Tucker and her friends threw one of their besties the cutest baby shower! I mean, some day, some day, I would dream of having a water color flamingo crest at my shower. HOW sweet this is! 

3. The No Recipe Curry - looking for a recipe for the weekend that is delicious and easy...this is it. 

4. Sparkle water bottle - yes. are you surprised I love this water bottle!!!! 

5. le salon app - Don't want to adventure outside in the ice cold for a mani pedi? I used Le Salon App for an at home manicure recently and it was LOVELY. I didn't even have to leave my flat to have pretty nails. 

6. Party Girl & Sweet Girl  - Chick Lit, I have to be honest, I'm still a fan. These books are super cute, super fun and an easy quick read. Party girl was a fav to read since I work in the same industry, it gave me a good giggle. I can't wait for the third to come out! 

7. Being Boss, A Podcast - I was recommended this creative business podcast this week and am really loving it. So many different themes with business, marketing, goals, add it to your list. I love listening to it on the tube, on my walk to work, lunch break, huge podcast fan.

8. Michelle Edgemont Ombre Placemat Pad - How cute are these placemats by Michelle Edgemont? Loving them for my next together! Check out her whole line, she has created some pretties. 

9. ASOS Sparkle Heels - Under £50 and fun. I want to add these fun sparkly shoes to my closet for my next night out! 

Happy Friday everyone! xoxo Rebecca

Healthy Eating

OK, I know, it is the new year and everyone is on the healthy kick, blah blah blah! Luckily, I would say, I'm usually pretty healthy. I exercise and lots of veggies and enjoy cooking healthy, however, every year when December comes around, I do tend to overindulge in cookies and sweets and bubbly. January comes around and I know I am not the only one who is craving more greens and all over healthy dishes. These past few weeks I have spent Sunday afternoon heading to our local green grocer and cooking up a storm of delicious recipes to enjoy throughout the week. I have found that planning my meals has been easier to stick with in eating healthy. I thought I would share a few of my favorites if you were looking for some inspiring healthy dishes. Go out and stuff your kitchen with brown rice, spinach, avocados, kale, sweet potatoes and all the healthy yumminess. Enjoy!
There is something I love about making a bowl size portion of meals, it is just enough and usually fast and easy to prep.
I am going to try out these yummy Power Bowls on Camille Styles

Best of 2015!

It seems like so long ago that I wrote this post here about goals for the past year. The past twelve months have been a lot of hard work and goal setting but also a lot of excitement and fun brought along with them. From starting a new business, running the New York City marathon with my husband, planning some memorable events in London to celebrating our first anniversary in Paris, the year has been full of some absolutely memorable occasions. I thought I would take this post to reflect back on the fun year 2015 was before moving full speed ahead into this year. 
2015 started out for me with no resolutions, but goals instead. Goals to enjoy life a bit more, really move forward with my own business and take a bit more "me" time. I organized a super fun Afternoon Tea at Sketch with some amazing bloggers I have gotten to know well and had such a nice time catching up with industry ladies. I always find it extremely important to create a community of like minded people around you in your work and this group of ladies is pretty fabulous I have to say!
I continued sharing guest posts from some amazing Working Women that I am inspired by. From The Lovely Drawer Guest Post, Quill London, Lamplighter London and Charlotte Mills Bridal, it was exciting to share their ideas and stories on business.

I was beyond honored to be featured over on B.Loved blog about my career, see it here. Speaking of career, this year had me juggling my new business, my events planning job and the blog, it was a lot to learn how to juggle but is getting better every day. I was SO excited at the end of January to introduce the new business, Glimmer & Threads.
 After a year before of hectic planning for our wedding and starting the business, I reminded myself of some of life's non negotiable, taking time out. Still nothing makes me happier then a morning with my Mr. Beau and Sir Oliver, getting to be with my family or see all of my girlfriends for the weekend. The non negotiable in life!
