Outfit posts

I like to think I'm OK with a camera, however, I have never bothered with outfit posts. Partly because a lot of clothes I wear day to day aren't worthy of a post and partly because I don't really like/want to have my picture taken. When I do, they often end up like this, or worse. I bet pro-fashion bloggers don't fall over in their heels as often as I do either.

To see how it's done properly have a look at hugely successful Rumi, below from Fashion Toast.

Big fat scarves!

...and other neck warming accessories. One of the best things about winter, especially these days as it seems to be socially acceptable to go out with a blanket on!

Half painted nails

Easier, less painting and less nail varnish remover (which I hate) thoughts?
nails belong to Ivana Carpio

Rainbow churches

As you may have realised I do like a bit of colour to brighten up a dreary urban space now and then. Especially in a grey cloudy environment. This derelict church in Washington has been tarted up (as we say in the UK!) by Alex Brewer or Hense as he also goes by. Alex is an artist who was hired to paint the mural on this church. Lots of other bright colourful images here including more about this church.

Fairy light tunnel

London needs to get a fairy light tunnel! maybe the annoying walk way that connects the Bank and Monument stations, then you wouldn't mind getting stuck in the human traffic. This tunnel is in Nabana no Sato, a botanical garden, Kuwana, Japan. More info and pictures on MyModernNet.

Chimney Pot Park - Salford

Whilst looking for images of chimneys on google image, I came across a picture of this place in Salford. The tiny two up two down terraced houses in the north were not really designed for modern living and so these were left to rot until redesigned. The living space is on the top floor, the new roofs incorporate 'chimney roof lights' providing extra light. Read more about it here.
