I must admit that I was initially attracted to the Movado watches based solely on their aesthetic and ad campaigns. Famous faces such as Lily Collins, Leonardo Di Caprio and most recently Kerry Washington have served as Movado ambassadors thus gracing magazine pages in simple yet stunning and effective campaigns. Upon visiting The Royal Shop on Broadstreet recently I was able to see first hand the beauty and craftsmanship of these classic time pieces. I share below a little more information on Movado and also some of my watch picks for him and her.

OSCAR DE LA RENTA was one of the fashion industries most loved, celebrated and well respected designers - remaining a presence in the industry until his passing just days ago. I can remember watching his Spring/Summer 2015 show in awe as models made their way down the runway in stunning pastel creations with appearances of classic black and white ensembles. Oscar's elegant and feminine designs gained him a loyal fan base including Jackie Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn and more recently Nicole Kidman and Sarah Jessica Parker. See below some of my favorite Oscar de la Renta moments via Vogue UK and see the whole story here.

I love a good bar cart and was so excited when I saw Pop Sugar Home share their tips on How to create a stylish coffee & tea station. I had a lovely antique mahogany bar cart at my last home which I turned into a coffee/ tea cart because it served my needs better. Since then I have seen more "coffee carts" popping up on Pinterest and I'm loving the inspiration. I make tea at least twice a day at home so have created a little tea nook in the corner of my kitchen. I also love cappuccinos and have been dreaming of adding a espresso/cappuccino maker for some time now. See my coffee cart inspiration below and shop my Coffee/ Tea Station must haves via Shop Style.

October is breast cancer awareness month and today LDB is going PINK with two Rosés from Platinum Wines. While I am no authority on wine there are a few things I have learnt thanks to The Wine Spectator and Food & Wine. I must admit some of the terms were a bit over my head to begin with but with a little research I think I've gotten the hang of it! The definition of Rosé is as follows: A light pink wine made from purple grapes, with the skins being removed from the juice during fermentation as soon as the desired color has been attained.

I think one thing high on all women's wish list is a stunning walk in closet. While I spend time swooning over hugely unrealistic closets such as Carrie's from SATC I was attracted to this closet for the complete opposite reason - the simplicity. This small room turned walk in closet is minimal, bright and functional. The styling, clothes and accessories are pretty chic also! This closet appeals to me mostly because it is attainable, any one of us with a second bedroom or small nook can recreate this. See the whole post here
