Making Wrong Decisions

Decisions. They always trip me up, even the little ones. A light example to start with, then we'll get into the heavier stuff!
One decision I constantly struggle with, as material as this is going to sound, is, What Colour?

Every Item I buy ends up coming in a huge array of colours, and to pick ONE is torture! Do you go with the one that you saw first, because that was your first original love? or do you go with the one you fell in love with second? In the wise words of Johnny Depp;

"If you love two people at the same time, choose the second. Because if you really loved the first, you wouldn't have fallen in love with the second"

Wise words, and while I'm pretty sure he's not referring to which colour shoes to buy, I reckon you can still use this theory when it comes to colour deciding.

Another thing when it comes to decisions, how do you deal when you know you've made the wrong choice?

I feel like I face this far far too often, even it comes to small things (like colour deciding), and I think it all comes down to judgement. If I worry that I'm not making the right decision, it's because I'm not making the right decision, pretty straight forward you'd think, no? 

Is your judgement correct though? Trusting your own judgement can sometimes be the hardest thing. Do you think you're right? Do other people think you're right? 

Yesterday I made a silly decision and I've felt sick all day that I made the wrong choice, it's silly really. My boyfriend was off to his house after staying down at mine for the last five days, and he said, pretty simply, 'do you want to come down for the night and then go back tomorrow night?'

To which a reeled off a string of, no I can't because.......blah blah blah!

I'm not sure why I even fought it, of course I wanted to go, but I kept thinking about my exams and how I should study, and how I wouldn't get much done if I was at his house, even though, he had study to do too, and I'm sure I would've gotten a lot done really, maybe even more than if I'd stayed home. (Bugger.)

Regretting it today though has been bugging me like crazy, and has meant that I've totally wasted a day, because I just haven't been able to enjoy it! (Not that there's much to enjoy about a day of study, but hey, at least I could've endured  it with someone fun!)

So the real question here is, how do you let it go? How do you put it to one side and say, no, it's too late anyway, move on?

Another decision I've been facing is who do I get to redesign my blog? I've put a deposit down for one person, but I keep second guessing myself and asking myself if that's the right person for the job? I have someone else in mind, and I just have this overwhelming feeling that I'll get a better outcome with this other person. But then cost is thrown into that mix too. And with this kind of decision it's so hard to know the outcome, maybe the first lady will be fine, and I'll love the outcome, but maybe it'll be crap and I won't like it at all and regret not going with the second person I decided on! How do you choose?

So here are the questions!

1. How do you choose between colours?

2. How do you deal with situations when you know you've made the wrong decision? 

3. How do you choose when the outcome isn't so clear?

Hope you've all had a lovely lovely week, sorry again that my posting has been sporadic! Will hopefully fix this when exams are all done and dusted!!

What a stunning, simple and classic outfit! This girl is so super stylish! 

Ahhh cheese and figs, my absolute favourite! 

Gorgeous idea for a dinner party or wedding reception! I love patterned chairs and they add so so much to the colour scheme of the entire table! 

Enough said :)

Gorgeous summer top, I would love love love to know where it's from!!

Gorgeous bright kitchen colours! I would never think to get a lime green kitchen aid, but with the pink and blue, it looks divine!

Perfect way to spend a Saturday Afternoon perfect way to spend an afternoon! Wouldn't a wine and cheese night be so so lovely in summer, when the air is warm, and the back garden is lit with fairy lights. Lovely.

Or even in Winter, with a fire blazing and mulled wine all round! and then in either setting, the party just going on throughout the night, with more wine and laughter! Perfection!

Favourite Pins Friday!

New Feature this week! As you all know, I'm obsessed with Pinterest! So I thought I'd share my favourite pins from the week and tell you why! 


Need I say more? Cant you just imagine having a serene bath with this AMAZING view! 
Now imagine it at night! Bliss!

My Ultimate idea of a perfect perfect date! A little tent/fort on the beach, the sun setting, yummy food, the best company and lots of giggles! 

I think this is such a gorgeous photo and is such an essential part to any wedding, a sneaky moment with champagne, just the two of you, to reflect on and enjoy the moment and the day you're in! 

These bookshelves are simply divine! I cant believe how much they change the look of the room! From here on out, normal bookshelves just look boring! 

I love these colours for winter! Such a nice change from black and grey, and such an uplifting colour palette! My perfect colour combination!

I really really liked this photo this week and while it's such a simple outfit, she just looks to put together! Such classic winter pieces for every wardrobe! 

Ahhh sunshine! Where are you! This to me is the perfect perfect way to spend Saturday morning, basking in the sun, a cheeky glass of champagne (or tea!) with the sunshine streaming through the windows and a good book or magazine! Bliss!

This is a Jewish Chuppah for a wedding, but I think it's just such a gorgeous idea for a backyard party! So sweet and simple! 

My idea of the perfect job, in a perfect office! 

Such a gorgeous picture for your groom, should defs be a photo to have on your wedding photo list! 

Again, I love a cheesy date idea! And a trip to the drive-in with all the essentials packed gets me every time! 

Ahhh Paris! This picture reminds me of my favourite memories from Paris, and the best best thing we did while we were there! Hiring bikes and riding them around the gardens of Versailles! Just amazing!

Probably the most perfect and beautiful office around - Dallas Shaw

When I first laid eyes on this amazing office probably a year ago, (I've had it saved on my desktop even before Pinterest operated! (how did we ever survive without it!!)) I was instantly in love! Im always drawn to white spaces and the beautiful feminine details and touches of metallic and pink get me every time! 
But it was only today that I discover via This is Glamourous, that there are even more photos of this heavenly office with such gorgeous detail! The office belongs to Dallas Shaw, who does lovely lovely illustrations for amazing designers! Check out her work here!
Gosh I'm in love with it even more now!!

Attainable Homes

When I'm trawling through beautiful pictures of homes on Pinterest, I only ever pin homes that are somewhat attainable, rather than super lavish. In the way that they give me inspiration that I can adapt personally. I'm not really sure why I do this, but I think it comes down to three things; Financial Reasons, Lack of Creativity and purely Functionality! 

I love these three homes because they seem attainable but still truly gorgeous at the same time, and ofcourse the colour schemes just pull at my heart strings!

Do you tend to do this too?
And which home is your favourite?
