Weekend Wishlist

Oh joy. The weekend is So Very Nearly Here. Here’s what mine would contain, were I the Queen. Or even K-Mid.

Peonies. Armfuls and armfuls of peonies (until I look exactly like this girl from the Vogue archives). Or just a bouquet of palest pink, white and cream ones. They are summer in a blowsy, overblown, gorgeous flower. I love peony season. (I also love these pictures, from Trouvais.) You can buy them from everywhere – on offer at M&S (I have deep pink peonies – reduced to £5), your local flower stall, or a fancy florist (this is a wow bouquet).


Susan Ibrahim for & Other Stories The name Susan Ibrahim is new to me, but she’s a Paris-based Swedish designer who has worked with & Other Stories on a niche collection which does not – hurrah – cost the earth. The red dress, for instance (also available in black), comes in at £65; and this terribly ladylike leather handbag at £79.




Big Birdies… 

big_birdie_detail-1For this is what these delightful cushions (£20) are called. Yet, I know I am obsessed with cushions – but a couple of these marching across C’s bed? What could be nicer? They’re by the clever Clare Nicolson, fashioned from vintage fabrics and come in a variety of colours. (I found these courtesy of Design Sponge, which I was cruising in search of inspiration.


Clinque Chubby Stick Moisturising Lip Colour Balm I’ve gone a bit Diane Vreeland on the ‘think pink’ front today, haven’t I? Still, I have dry lips and I like the merest suggestion of colour (I cannot carry off lipstick) and so these brilliantly-named Chubby Sticks, £16 have shot to the top of my wish list. Plus Clinique is one of those brands on which a girl can rely upon always deliver.
