Still pretending I'm on holiday. I love Mara's prints on these swimsuits, and the bag! Available on Bonadrag. Lots of cool illustration bits on her blog.

Old Coronation Pics

Walking around London at the weekend, lots of scaffolding has come down, buildings cleaned and pavements scrubbed in time for the Olympics. The city is going to be unrecognisable! That combined with the sunshine and all the union jacks everywhere in preparation for the Jubilee celebrations, it was quite a site for the eyes.

Martino Gamper and Francis Upritchard’s flat

I spied this on HomeCollection's blog. It's the home of artist Francis and furniture designer Martino who live in an ex-council flat in Hackney. These photographs on T Magazine, show that with a large amount of creativity, even the most boring house can be made unique and individual.

see more pictures here.

World Goth Day - 22nd May

Apparently... tomorrow is World Goth Day, I'm not sure exactly what this entails but anyhow, it's a great excuse for a few goth style pictures. I'm not saying I'm a goth, I don't own a full length leather coat, wear crosses, or the Buffalo style boots,  but I do as you probably already know, love a bit of lace and black eye makeup.

Here are some celebrities/ bloggers doing it well....

Odette NY

Working on the weekend sucks but it's something I will have to get used to now that I am freelancing!
There is always something on the internet to distract you, including the new Odette lookbook.
I do have a bit of a thing for eyes in jewellery for some reason as well.

Black and White Print Clash

I don't know who this woman is, but I like her already... because:
She has matched/ clashed all her clothes to her and to her room.
Because she has cheapo Ikea cushions on an interiors blog (and because I have those cushions too)
and from what I can tell from this angle, her shoes are all kinds of special.

Find out who she actually is here.

Radio Days

Discovered this amazing vintage shop the other weekend, close to Waterloo station. There is a little market area called Lower Marsh that seems fairly untouched - no Prets.
The window displays are brilliant. If you go onto their site they have a whole gallery devoted to them.
After that, why not pop over the road in the proper old boozer that is The Duke of Sussex.

Paul Smith Shirt and Scarf

I love this print, it reminds me of Bladerunner for some reason, although I haven't seen it for years so it may not be anything like it. They are available from Oki-ni.

Turkish Supermarket Snack No 2

Crappy picture, but I finally got another Turkish supermarket snack. I know you have all been desperately wondering what the next one would be. ha. Steve and I demolished these in a day. They are a solid 8 and a half out of 10. Biscolata Stars, go get some.

W Magazine spread

Love these images from W Magazine featuring Lara Stone. Found randomly on Sam McNights website (a hair stylist) I don't know how I end up on these pages...!

Saturday, 5 May 2012


I have been collecting all my bookmarks at work and saving them onto a site called Delicious. That way I can access them wherever I am. However I'm not finding it that easy to use, so if you know any better sites for this? Maybe you can do this on Stumble. But anyway, whilst bookmarking I found this site again...!

Adam Yauch Tribute

Totally gutted about hearing the news of Beastie Boys Adam Yauchs death yesterday. They are in my top ten of all time favourite bands and I never got to see them live. I am wearing my VW badge as a tribute. Check out a gallery of photos on Rolling Stones site.

Driving Soundtrack

Have you seen Drive yet? I'm not one for watching films with violent bits (I'm a wimp) but this one I loved. Proper 80s styling with a brilliant soundtrack that I cannot stop playing. The fact that Ryan Gosling is in it, kinda helps as well.

Dita's new perfume

I'm not much of a fan of celebrity scents and I have no idea what this one smells like but I do like the packaging. Dita Von Teeses perfume.
