when in paris, just say...

And we're back! Rohan and I had such an amazing time in Europe, we were overwhelmed by the beauty and history of the cities and inspired by so many of the museums and galleries we visited.

And in some pretty exciting news, we're engaged! Rohan proposed during lunch at Jules Verne, one of the most amazing dining experiences of my life. I was so surprised when we were presented with our desserts complete with a candle and happy anniversary written around the plate. The ring is by one of my favourite jewellery designers, Satomi Kawakita. I have been wanting a ring of hers for so long and this little gem is so beautiful I can't take my eyes off it! One of my best friends Hannah also happens to be in New York and did a studio visit with Satomi who is every bit as lovely as her designs.

In the spirit of saying yes I also picked up the Dior 'oui' ring I have been wanting forever (remember this illustration?) and a few lovely pieces from COS. I will be paying for my yeses for months to come but for right now I couldn't be happier.
