I'm all moved in (well, there's a couple things I still need to unpack) to my new place.
 All my bathtime dreams (yes I have those) came true last night with candles, white bath, beautiful 
taps... You know, the things all normal people can't wait to have. I also finally tried the 
Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Masque (out in June) as part of my Sunday night ritual- 
which I kept on whilst making a shelf out of books. Mainly because I've always wanted to 
do that but also because I have no space or money for a real one. Two birds?

Collated photos from my Pentax, the best cake ever with my vintage tea set (very English?) 
and my still favourite plastic black shoes that will be making a re-appearance in the warmer 
I'm working at ELLE at the moment which is great fun, I've done a couple pieces for the 
website and taken over the ELLE UK instagram- which if you follow me on twitter you will 
have seen. Which means I'm often seen photographing things in strange places around the office.
I'm also moving house (again!) this weekend so it's a-go-go. Whenever there is lots to do
it's 'stressful' and whenever there's nothing it's 'boring' so I try to enjoy a full on
lifestyle and appreciate having lots to do as best I can. When I'm at home I think about
work and when I'm at work I think about how I'm going to decorate my house.

The sun has been out for all of two minutes and I'm already dreaming of hitting 
Mediterranean shores. These photos are from last summer's post-Olympics, 
pre-Paralympics trip to Corsica. The only thing that's keeping me from buying a 
ticket today is the smell of the new Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier which transports 
me to my happy place of sea, sunshine and South of France.

More from backstage at Marques Almeida. The intensity of the colours used in the fur and 
pony skin created a great juxtaposition to the trademark denim in this collection. I'm a big 
fan of that deep ocean navy blue shoulder throw paired with the definition of party at the 
front, business at the back hair.

(&Other Stories jumper, Topshop jeans, Rimmel and POP nail polishes)

A bit more light and a bit more warmth means I can actually contemplate wearing just 
a jumper out. Especially when that jumper is a made in heaven tailored light knit. 
Monochrome is best paired with over the top baby blue and purple glitter nails, no?

Life through the daily lens.
I fulfill all clichéd dreams of coffees, flowers, pretty buildings, sugary treats and (unashamed) selfies.

Marie-Amelie Tondu's work is a mix of art, fashion and daily life that makes me
want to jump into each photograph and live that moment myself.
