Girl needs some SUN on her skin. The bank holiday weather Gods did bless us with some
sunshine- but we're back to rainy Tuesday today. Luckily I'm off to Italy this weekend-
where hopefully sun and sea will be on the cards. With the sun came wind yesterday, and
wearing a dress that is basically a big sack means shapes ahoy. Please do note my traditional
'sun face'- eyes closed, chin up, mouth open that I must do all the time without realising and
probably has led me to ingest the odd fly over the years. Also having minor trouble working
 the 'wind in my hair' look, but this will do for now.

Emma Parry, whose work I discovered some time ago but never go round to posting it here.
I love the seeming randomness of the photos, and the mix of nature and people. Makes me
want to go exploring.

New place, new ways of trying to fit all my belongings in a small space without looking 
overly crowded. My pièce de résistance has to be my shelf made out of magazines and 
books, of which I have far too many so it's about time I started building furniture out of 
These photos and the couple previous posts are all part of the effort I'm putting back into 
the blog. Making sure I keep things current- even though daydreaming about sunshine times 
is always fun. HELLO, PRESENT. whuut whuuut.

Weekly rituals. One I've been missing out on for the past month since moving house- and 
excuse me for sounding like a broken record- is Columbia Road Flower Market. Way more 
than just an opportunity to instagram a ridiculous amount of flowers. Also a time that (I'm 
jinxing it here) seems to bring out the sunshine, and makes it feel like I don't live in non-stop
working central London (even the buildings are small) and a place where the people who
scowl at you on the tube are actually friendly and smiling. It's weird.

Accidentally-on-purpose matched my outfit to my choice of Hydrangeas. They're in season, 
hyacinths are out. So out. 

Thank you to Sofia for the photos of me.

Hawaiian Coconut aka Emily Faulstich
 One of my favourite tumblrs to scroll through. Beautiful everyday life images 
documented through beautiful photography. She makes the most mundane things 
look intriguing.There's a great grainy quality to her images- even though she shoots 
on digital - (I know it's down to ISO but I always forget camera tricks in situ) and 
these photographs make me want to go and explore more.

I get the feeling sometimes that lots of people thing beauty is a pretty vain business. It's
easy to understand why- it's a business based on your appearance. But so are clothes, so
are cars- even art is often based on appearances (you can afford that painting!?) and the
taste that you have. In fact, everything is part of vanity and narscism and that shouldn't be
a bad thing. We care about ourselves- and that's nothing to shy away from. Why wouldn't
you want to be the best version of you you can be?

That's why I was really honoured when Crème de la Mer asked me to shoot their Limited
Edition 100ml pot. Probably the most coveted skincare brand in the world- but guess what?
They care too. The Miracle Broth used in all Crème de la Mer products (if the brand name
wasn't obvious enough already) relies on a living ocean and one the has a working marine

The almost holographic-oceana pot will be available from 18th May at Selfridges and the
proceeds will go towards the BLUE Marine Foundation.

No, sadly I'm not sat on the beach in Corsica. But I was last August and that's the same 
thing right? (no it's not). When I was however, I took some picturesque photos of these
Shelly shell earrings that I'd found at Spitalfields market some days beforehand and which
seemed all too perfect to not buy for my beach holiday. As ever, I'm dreaming of sunshine
(and might just have to book a holiday pronto since I remembered the sun don't shine in

Soojoo I love you. Braces rock. Eight hour cream on eyelids is a thang.
Having ran here from backstage at Sibling (that's across most of Soho) I was a sweaty
mess and I'm pretty sure they let me in so quickly just so that I didn't put people off at the
front of the queue. Great atmosphere, and good old Geoffrey hugged every.single.model.
after the show. What an Aussie babe.
