{links + lovely news}

. . . a most exciting & perfect week, and still much to look forward to: twirls of ribbon and pretty parcels to wrap, twinkling fairy lights and frosted shop windows, lost in late nights and lingering champagne brunches . . .

{as always, some things you may have missed:}
* on styling: fuchsia & carrera
* make a difference: pencils of promise
* stylist: faye toogood
* pretty party dresses: layers & layers of tulle
* gift wrapping: white on white & rhinestones
* colour inspiration: cultured pearls & marble
* eco-chic: wine bottle centerpieces
* holiday inspiration: warm slate & evergreen
* for the weekend: a few lovely links

{p.s.} lovely news, for those who haven't yet heard:
thank you to the london times for listing {this is glamorous} as one of 50 of the world's best design blogs!

. . . and of course, thank you for always taking a moment to stop by and for making this year a perfectly wonderful xo
