In fact, twice in one day because I can’t resist: a scrapbook of Instagram pretties: Schiaparelli dresses from @the_corsetedbeauty;
an Evelyn Dunbar sketch from @designfortoday;
an elegant doodle from @garancedore;
marmalade jars and the delightful National Trust home of Standen from phil._.b;

Just looking at these pictures of Vetiver in the wild cheers me up.
It’s a scent I very much like, although it’s definitely deemed a more “masculine” one (maybe it goes well with shirt women, whom I aspire to be? I do quite like chypres and leather scents too though, which also aren’t your traditional floral feminines), and it can be quite divisive.
I think it’s perhaps like the masculine tuberose: hard to ignore and a distinctive presence. So as I’m looking for a new summer scent, I was delighted to find this list of summer vetivers, topped by this favourite from Guerlain.
Yes please. I have very good memories of a Singapore Sling, and an Adrien Brody-esque barman shifting the tab to someone else.
Buy this and other marmalades here.
Fribble: Regency slang for an airheaded fellow.
As regular visitors will know, I do like a pom-pom. This pair is from Lux Tots.
As my friends can attest, I would so go for these shoes from the wonderfully-titled Golden Ponies. Found via Oh Joy.
These might be men’s pyjamas but I’d still love a pair myself. The Cecil Chambray pyjamas from Poplin.
