So I’m off to London this week and my schedule is looking jam-packed as usual. There’s always just so much to do! Along with seeing friends, having what I know are going to be some great meals and taking in a couple of shows, I’m also looking forward to visiting some of my favorite stores. And it just so happens that two of them are re-opening after makeovers right about now. What great timing!
First, Atelier Abigail Ahern! You know what a huge fan I am. My last visit was pretty fabulous so I can’t wait to see what the new store looks like!
Second, Toast. Here are a few shots from their 2013 Spring/Summer collection:
I’ll be sure to post plenty of photos of everything on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
And not to worry, I also have blog posts lined up to keep you entertained here while I’m gone. TTFN!

Good morning everyone! I’m just popping in to say hi before I fly back home. Like on every trip to New York, I spent hours at ABC Carpet & Home the other day, sourcing a few things for projects (and maybe one or two things for myself!) and I just had to show you one shot. Those windows, floors and walls get me every time and that couch was so pretty and comfortable and I loved those pendants and table with it.
I swear if I could only shop at one store for the rest of my life, It would be ABC. I love everything about the place. And no, this is not a paid endorsementl
Okay, gotta run now so I’ll see you all tomorrow!

You already know how much I love Abigail Ahern so her shop, Atelier Abigail Ahern, was on the top of my London shopping list. Here are some quick photos I took.
If you’re familiar with her home, you can see that it looks and feels almost just like it.
It has the same famous gray walls, bookcase wallpaper, convex mirrors, ornate fireplaces, chandeliers, statues and vases …..
Believe it or not, I didn’t buy a thing. Not because I didn’t find anything I wanted. I did. This rhino being one:
and this chandelier being another:
But they wouldn’t exactly fit in the suitcase!
So yup, I left empty-handed but it was still so fun to visit. If I lived in London, I’d be a regular for sure.
