First Monday of August, Summer seems to be slipping through our fingers but saying that I am counting down the days until my holiday to Rhodes next month where there will be plenty of lounging in the sun, sipping on cocktails and exploring cute little towns.
As well as looking forward to some time away. I have also started to think about some of my favourite months that fall in Autumn and Winter. Dreaming of sipping on hot chocolate and watching festive specials, layering up, wearing winter coats and hats.
I've decided this Grumpy Cat creation, really should be my birthday cake this year. Talking of cake GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF to return this Wednesday... I'm just a little excited, My T.V highlight of the year.

I recently collaborated with Caseapp to design my own laptop skin using one of my designs, I went for one of my repeat patterns opting for the summery-pink-lovin' flamingos - which if you remember, they were actually my blog background for quite some time.
The Caseapp customer service is brilliant with quick delivery and good quality products. Laptop skins are a fun and super easy way to change up your look as frequently as you would like. It gave myold shabby macbook a new lease of life - I did have to cut my design down as I wasn't sure which size to order (I probably should have measured… my bad)
If like Gatsby you would like to design your own, you're in luck. Caseapp are giving my readers the chance to design their own custome case using my code for 20% off JAYMIECASE20.
I floated around Knightsbridge and Kensington - letting my eyes dance over the delightfully delicious and stunning eclairs from Maitre Choux whilst my mouth most definitely watered and I gave into my sweet tooth and devoured a raspberry eclair whilst sitting by the Natural History museum enjoying the afternoon sunshine. I enjoyed some much needed solitude and quiet away from the heat and busy streets so I took myself off to the Wallace Collection with some of the most exquisitely decorated rooms and artwork to match.
Since I saw the ballet version of Edward Scissorhands last year, I have been hooked with the art form even more. In the evening we went to the London Collesium (near Trafalgar Sq) to see Cinderella by the Dutch National Ballet, which as you can imagine was utterly dreamy and visually stunning. I've already booked my tickets to see Sleeping Beauty and I'm hoping to see Swan Lake and The Nutcracker this Winter season.
