Flight of the Conchords

At one time I was obsessed with well illustrated band posters. I have a penchant for illustration anyway, but my need to be tidy and minimal in my home has seemed to take over, so artwork is now mostly reserved to stay within the pages of well thumbed hardback books. I stumbled across some amazing […] Read more…

Baked

Last night I made baked Aubergine with Mozarella, Tomatoes, Chilli and Parmezan with pine nuts and risotto. With fresh summers vegetables from the grocers it was yummy! Dave had band practice and for once I didn’t have anything to do, everything on TV was either rubbish or too scary to watch on my own and […] Read more…

Oh Calcutta!

What’s going on with the weather? Has Global warming replicated Monsoon season in Britain? It’ scary but so beautiful. The nights are humid and long lasting and the days are cosy and lush. Makes me want to be in Calcutta like I was this time last year. With rainwater squelching in my sandals and running […] Read more…

Their concept this season was to take elements of fashionable city flats from across the globe, New York, Paris, Norway – so basically stylish capsule living, and incorporate it into their collection. Every sofa […] Read more…

Autumn and Winter at M&S

Can you believe Autumn/Winter is being previewed already??? How depressing! As promised, here are a few sneak previews of what is to hit the stores later this year from M&S’s homewares range. They showed a lot of Indian inspired soft furnishings in hues of purples, dark blues and reds, I just couldn’t bring myself to […] Read more…

Some Thoughts…

I tried to write this last night but my internet connection was determined to ruin my evening. I was trying to tell you that I had baked squash and linconshire sausages from our local butchers for dinner (seems a bit pointless now…sounded a lot more exciting last night.) Also we are now the proud owners […] Read more…

Let the right one in…

Linus Ricard shot the previous fashion images for Pia Stanchina. I loved what he did with her work, rendering it completely emotional. When I linked through Pia’s website to his, what I saw scared the crap out of me. It made me want to avert my eyes quickly and I felt a panicked feeling rise […] Read more…

Pia Stanchina

Went to pay a long overdue visit to my friend Pia Stanchina and her gorgeous baby Mira today, who literally is the coolest, most chilled baby ever. And I can tell she’s going to be a funny one! Mind-blowing how at just 5 months, a baby can totally radiate individuality. Pia and I were talking […] Read more…
