16th June Yesterday I celebrated my first birthday, I’ve gotten away with 365 days of utter naughtyness in disguise! Pawsome! :D
I was woken up by two lunatics singing a birthday song for me which sounded awful but they had treats so I played nice and acted as if I enjoyed it. Treats in bed is a first, but certainly something I can get used to! As I munched away on my liver paw cookie treat with crumbles neatly scattered all around me I was certain life couldn’t get better when suddenly four hands started rubbing my tummy too. Treats. In bed. Tummy rub. You know what they say, it’s a dog’s life!
We then proceeded to The Arts Club (the only dog allowed with a special membership if I might add) because I’m so fluffy and handsome.
They make an excellent Sunday roast which I like to have cut and served to me by my master while gazing out in the court yard. It seemed everyone was celebrating me as there was a live band and lots of people. I suspect some were a bit confused about who’s birthday it was though as I kept seeing cards written “father’s day” on them…. But I don’t mind. A pawty is a pawty. As soon as the rain stopped we lept into the park and I transformed from my usual fluffy innocent persona to utter raw extinction mode – I’m a proud member of Mayfair Squirrel Patrol!
When I thought things couldn’t possibly get any better I was served a huge cupcake, more treats, pupcorn and a cookie burger!
Good morning! Yesterday the sun was shining so we agreed to meet up in the park, there is something especially lovely about hanging out in the parks in London in the spring! Lots of happy and carefree faces, little kids running around picking flowers they’re not allowed to touch and excited dogs chasing sticks flying across the sky. I think spring is my favourite time of the year! It’s like Fridays – you have all of the good bit ahead of you :) You know spring has arrived when you can turn down the heating, shower in slightly colder water than normal and even turn on the air con from time to time.. aaah, the spring is very welcome ♥

Linus LOVES the park and yesterday he met a King Charles Spaniel puppy girl he instantly fell in love with, and he cried and cried and cried when we had to part them. He does it with all the girls he meets no matter their size, such a player ;)
Hope you’ll have a fantastic day!! Now I need to get on the treadmill and then I have a dvd date with Tracy Anderson :D xx
Ah, I’ve slept like a baby tonight! Every single part of my body hurts from yesterday, it’s amazing how much of a workout you can get from staying in one spot – love yoga! After the yoga yesterday we went to see the vet with Linus and they said Linus will have to get braces!! I didn’t even know that existed for dogs :O His teeth hasn’t come out right as some of his milk teeth are still in and at some places he has teeth coming sideways, poor thing. We will fix it ♥
Linus was not very happy to hear the news…. Luckily we have a week to prepare. I’m going to spoil him with doggie cupcakes from the doggie spa at Harrods this week (yes, they actually have doggie cupcakes!) because I have a feeling he’ll only be chewing wet dog food next week. Poor little thing…
I’ve noticed I’m not the only one loving the Balmain collection of FW/12 as nearly all bloggers have mentioned it in one or the other way. Remember I got the “Balmain” style bomber jacket from Zara in London last month? It has become my absolute favourite go to jacket for autumn and I’ve practically been living in it ever since the autumnal temperature hit Monaco.. even to the park ;)

Linus has grown so fast and is in the middle of the infamous monkey face stage which suits his little naughty persona. He is also the most chatty dog I’ve ever met, it’s hilarious! He has a vast vocabulary of growling noises for each and every thing he is trying to communicate which are all expressed with the proudest facial expression. Such a little weirdo!
Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and give a little update on Linus as many of you have requested a post about him. The camera should also be finished very soon (hopefully!!) and then I’ll be back with outfits and makeup tutorials making it a bit more of a versatile blog again.
I hope you’re all having a really great weekend!! xx
It was an ecstatic puppy who met us in the door when we came home from London on Friday, and although we were only gone for a few days I could swear he had grown at least a few cm. We spent the rest of the Friday cuddling with the puppy until we all fell asleep wrapped around eachother. Pure joy!
Saturday we took the boat out, and because I’ve shown you so many pictures of our boat rides in the past I decided to make a little video for you guys instead :)
We had such a lovely day out with the boat today, and the water was smooth enough for Linus to come with as well. We didn’t end up swimming, but it was nice with some fresh sea air in our faces anyway :)
This doggie life vest is so cool! It has a handle on top so that the dog can easily be lifted in and out of the water. We brought it with and tried it on but decided not to go in the water so we took it off again. Next summer we will try it on again and take him for a swim :) Found it here.
New leather shorts with chain detailing from Tory Burch, scored here.
Tom Ford Black Orchid on my toes ♥
Linus wasn’t too sure about the boat at first, but he sure perked up after a little while :)
Linus is actually off on a little holiday now. The cleaner, who has a pomeranian herself, just came and picked him up. He will be staying with them while we’re in…… LONDON!! :D He hasn’t been away for more than an hour, but I already miss him terribly.
Now I seriously need to get packing. Our flight is at 07.30 tomorrow morning :O
Hope you are having a lovely Sunday. I have dedicated this Sunday to pamper myself, and right now I am sitting in the sofa with my hair soaked in neem oil with the most unflattering shower cap I nicked from a hotel wrapped around my head. Feels very good though ;)
As a massive tv-show fanatic I am so happy about all the shows finally starting up again, and tonight I will be watching Grey’s Anatomy accompanied by the love of my life and a little polar bear in my lap :D
My camera just died, so I had to use the S95 instead. I’m hoping I can have it fixed very soon as I would really like to bring it with me this week. I have lots of exciting things coming up, and NEED photos!! Better start packing as well actually… but first it’s Grey’a Anatomy and snuggels :)
Hope you are all having a nice and relaxing Sunday as well!! Take care, speak soon! :*
Linus has been throwing up all night poor thing, so we’re heading off to the vet this morning. I have had exactly zero hours of sleep – feel like a zombie! I got so many questions about the necklace I wore yesterday, so I’ll do a post about it and the one I am wearing later today. The jumper I am wearing came in the mail box yesterday – got to love the deliveries from theoutnet!!
