Ashes and Milk

Ashes and Milk…what a beautiful coupling of words…i recently spoke to Nikko the owner of this unique online gallery and she told me the name ‘Ashes and Milk’ emerged from her love of texture and natural materials. Ashes consist of dusty fine particles of grey and black while milk is creamy white and liquid. Symbolically […] Read more…

I am more excited than is healthy to discover these moustache pencils by French company Atypyk! At 9.50 Euros… Je t’aime! Je ‘taime! Je ‘taime! How often have you held a pencil up under your nose and pretended it was a moustache???? Just me then… Read more…

Oh Sunny Day!

Yesterday was the sunniest day EVER!!!! Which would have been nice on any other day… but i was shooting with my friend Aaron Tilley in Fandango which is right in the corner of a busy street in Angel and there were no blinds or any shade to hide behind – it was like a greenhouse! […] Read more…

Foreign Lands

I’ve been thinking a lot about my grandfather this morning…and the flat has seemed extra quiet and calm today. It’s been so bright outside, that with our shutters and bedposts i feel like i’m in Calcutta on a hot afternoon when everyone in the house is having a snooze. I just want to curl up […] Read more…

Mystery…

*Last night when David got home i noticed London:The Biography by Peter Ackroyd had suddenly appeared on our coffee table!!! As i flew into an excited and spluttering frenzy (this is what happens when i receive unexpected books) he appeared not to know where the book had come from… I suspect David had very sweetly […] Read more…

Ants on my spoon…

Once upon a time when i had dreams of curating my own online store, i knew that i would stock Bailey Doesn’t Bark‘s hugely imaginative collection. Having briefly blogged about their products before i wanted to find out a bit more about the brand. It’s founder Re Jin Lee, originally from Brazil, but now based […] Read more…
