Roses & white picket fences.

Monday, 6 August 2012

While all my loved ones back home were enduring some arctic days back in July, I was frolicking about in the beautiful French coastal town of Deauville amid the most impeccable gardens and white picket fences ... oh yes, my life has been incredibly taxing of late. Speaking of taxing, my absence has been somewhat accounted by the fact that I have spent the last week finding accommodation here in Boston in a frantic rush - a formidable task for a someone who is completely foreign to the area and on a limited budget. Thankfully, I now have a home and am ready to continue my adventures here! 

Have an absolutely sparkling week, everyone!

Love, Mandy. xx


  1. It's still chilly over here in Melbourne! I am in much need of some vitamin D and my skin is taking on a sickly translucent glow again - yikes! But this post has definitely brightened my day Mandy. Beautiful photos!

    Have a wonderful week lovely,

  2. So jealous! I've always wanted to live in Boston. I bet everyone's going to adore you and it's going to be fantastic. Especially when you're looking as gorgeous as you do here! The one shoulder works impeccably on you, and I love how the ruffles really give it a refined look.
    You're always killing those high-waisted shorts too. Perfect.

    So funny, I was just in Deauville! Did you get to any other towns nearby? I hope you got there when it was sunny, because it was pretty cloudy during my stay.

    So glad you're getting yourself settled in. Best of luck with everything:)

  3. Lovely blouse! Wow, good luck with settling in in Boston. You're so lucky!

  12. For most people, a fence around their front or back yard is a white picket fence. While such a fence is conventionally pleasing to the eye, it cannot provide the security and durability that concrete fences can give you.
