House-boat-party-Little-Big-Bell A fortnight ago, I was invited to a bloggers party on a houseboat, complete with bubbly and candies on King’s Coss canal in London. Floating-cinema The icing on the cake was that it was a Floating Cinema.

Let’s play guess what film we watched?

Just for fun, I’m going to include some quotes from the show throughout the post.

Apologies in advance if it doesn’t totally sound like me.

Anyway, when I told my daughter I was going to watch one of her favourite films on a barge, I had hoped she would have thought that “I’m not a regular mom, I’m a cool mom”, but that was not to be. House-boat-cards-by-Scout-Editions-featured-on-Little-Big-Bell We passed loads of colourful houseboats, just like the ones illustrated above by my friend Pui of Scout Editions. Currys-movie-night-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell Curry’s, one of UK’s leading electrical store hosted this fun party.

I think it was pretty obvious we had popcorn. The-floating-cinema-with-Curry's-styling-and-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell I was going to wear my pink Kate Spade dress, but then realised it was Sunday and it’s only “On Wednesday we wear pink”. So it had to be a blue and green colour blocked dress.

Want to check out what was in my “You can’t sit with us” handbag? ( You have either got the film by now or I’ve completely lost you in this post.)

Anyway, you can see I am a real Benefit cosmetics fan and Quay Australia sunglasses are totally “fetch”.

Love the holographic effect of the floating cinema’s programme leaflet. Bando-girl-gang-party-styling-and-photo-by-Geraldine-Tan-Little-Big-Bell The party on the barge was so “grool” ( great and cool combine).

There was sparkling wine with raspberries and bags of candies which included my favourite Flying saucer sweets, love its sherbet fizz when the coloured rice paper melt in the mouth. Outdoor-cinema The film we watched was from a Acer projector.

Now I really need one to recreate this outdoor film party scene. It would be perfect for my daughter’s birthday, in my back garden, before Summer goes.

What’s missing? Oh yes, the birthday cake. “I wish I could bake a cake made out of rainbows and smiles and everyone would eat it and be happy!”.

Oh wait, no need to wish. anges-de-sucre-photo-by-little-big-bell I can just get this gorgeous one from Anges de Sucre.

Have you guessed the film? It’s none other than Mean Girls, starring Lindsay Lohan.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this and that I didn’t lose you with all those quotes. Just a heads up, the Floating cinema is running till 20th September, so do check it out.

Back soon with more fun and colourful posts. Happy Bank holiday for those in the UK and everyone else, a happy weekend.

Hope everyone had a good weekend. The kids are due back to school tomorrow, so I have been  busy ensuring all is ready for the first day of term.

I thought I’d share with you where I stayed whilst in Copenhagen. As we wanted to live amongst the locals, we chose a self catering flat via airbnb.

The flat decorated by Ellen L Homann, comfortably accommodated four. There was a double bed and a sofa bed (above image with my daughter J). I was so taken by the comfort and style of the sofa, that I am now ordering one for our guest room. It’s by the Danish brand Innovation. The cushion in ochre, grey and black on the sofa is by Ferm Living.

Our flat, equipped with all the required amenities, was located in Gunlogsgade in the hip residential area of Island Brygge. Access to the city centre and Metro is all within walking distance. The flat is also near the Island Brygge Harbour baths called Havnebadet. Although the water was a bit cold, it may be very refreshing on a hot Summer’s day.

There were also some lovely independent shops and cafes nearby. The picture above is of our neighbouring cafe called Wulff + Konstali. They bake the most delicious Danish pastries, our breakfast staple, along with their delicious, freshly blended coffee.

The flat was light with its bleached wooden floors and ample windows. The style was decidedly eclectic, a mix of modern and vintage Scandinavia.

That ‘g’ print by Playtype was so befitting don’t you think? I have the exact same print at home, seeing this picture again is a gentle nudge for me to frame it up.

Loved these painted vintage chairs with their classic tapered legs. Here was where I sat when I wrote my blog posts at night.

Here is a sweet little corner of the apartment. I’m liking the box shelving. You can get similar ones from Muuto.

Within the box shelves were pretty, vintage floral prints.

That vintage three bulb, brass lamp came in handy for my Instagram shot of these gorgeous Bobo Choses Summer tops. I bought them for little M from the children’s boutique store dinBabuska, just opposite the apartment.

Here’s more vintage styling on a shelf in the living room. Those roses are so beautiful.

More clever use of box shelving in the kitchen. I’m liking the white tiles and the turquoise blue extendable lights by Ikea.The side shelf in a similar shade balances the overall look. Have you noticed those pastel Tupperware tumblers? They’re cute aren’t they? I might go hunting for some on ebay.

Last but not least, some wonderful quotations on this Bo Concept cushion.

Hope you have enjoyed the mini tour of where I stayed. I highly recommend it. The host Kristoffer was lovely. The only negative of the apartment was that the shower room was very small. However, that was only a minor point for us, we would gladly return when we visit Copenhagen again.

Have a wonderful start to your week. x
