Meet Adorable....

violette sunshine;0)!

i was supposed to explore the estate of kenwood but got lost and ended up at the poet keat's house! quite a walk is what happened and now i am utterly exhausted! found a george pub in the belsize park area. diet coke with lemon & blogging = now:) wish me adventure luck!

" for what it's worth...it's never
too late, or in my case too early,
to be whoever you want to be.
there's no time limit. start
whenever you want. you can change
or stay the same. there are no
rules to this thing. we can make
the best or the worst of it. i hope
you make the best of it. i hope
you see things that startle you.
i hope you feel things you never
felt before. i hope you meet people
who have a different point of view.
i hope you live a life you're proud 
of, and if you're not, i hope you
have the courage to start all
over again.
- f. scott fitzgerald

Diary 256: amazing sunshine morning beauties & amazing (personal) discoveries
















 images: 1-4 peckham rye park beauty 5&6 the horniman museum & gardens as snapped on my morning walks! 7-9 i went to kenwood house the other day and they have delicious treats  in the cafe and feature such amazing art in the actual house. 10 on adventure to capture beauty on one of many sunshine days:) 11 meet alice! she's my guardian angel. she's situated in nunhead cemetery which is an amazing victorian one. 12 &13 the gardens:) actually my garden. see the snugly 2?:))) 14 this is how happy i was that one of my dates was finally over hahaha. hallelujah. wearing my the loved one vintage dress & screaming mimis sunnies & bangles at franklins.

something amazing happened this past week. for the past 10 years i have had severe pms cramps, 3 days (and worse nights) out of my life every month (which is actually like a whole month of each year). all of a sudden i had zero cramps!without thinking i have not had any gluten in my food for weeks, i fell in love with my own baked bread made out of coconut & buckwheat flour which contains zero gluten:) i will from now on avoid gluten as much as possible. those 3 days i was just amazed;) it made such a difference to my life.

so if you are having severe pms cramps (by severe i mean living on pain killers and it still does not help at all so you are basically laying awake all night full of pain), this might be something worth trying and something to bring up with your doctor. 

&

our fall is something else. sunshine sunshine sunshine! this means explore & devour every greenery possible in the whole of london:))) 

discover 

is the word for this week.

"so, what if, instead of
thinking about solving
your whole life, you
just think about
adding additional good
things. one at a time.
just let your pile of 
good things grow."


just let your pile of good things grow

i say yes to that:)

now i am to finish the september issue of american vogue. i found this amazing painting inside the magazine, le restaurant de la paix,  by kees van dongen. such a colorful magic evening. style. i wanna be with!


i wish you a beautiful sunshine monday

An East Dulwich Saturday Outfit

hey beautiful creatures

saturday is my fave day of the week! i usually start it off with an unusual long walk. so many lovely places to visit. today the light was misty magic fantastical:) started off devouring peckham rye park's wild garden, i was there before 7am so i was completely alone. could not stop taking pictures. also on saturday's there is an absolutely wonderful farmer's market by the horniman museum & gardens so part of my walk is always passing by this place, then off to my woods it is for games of thrones magic. now i am all prepped out beautifully to devour my east dulwich & franklins.

happy saturday to you all:)

a quote that made me smile by the now late joan rivers:

"people say that money is not the key
to happiness,
but i always figured if you have enough money,
you can have a key made"

so true mademoiselle rivers.

i wish you a lovely saturday
