Recently...


I rediscovered my ribbon box. I really want to start making more of an effort and give more time to present wrapping. I really rushed this Christmas, I think if you have lots of adornments, papers, ribbons etc to choose from, you can be so much more creative.


I helped Annette at Urban Buzz with shooting her lookbook.


I went to see the Ian Dury film, Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll at the Tyneside Cinema. This is my favourite local cinema as it is independent and always shows great films. I haven't quite decided what I think about the film. Enjoyable yes, I love biographies but at the same time a little strange.


I went for a Sunday morning walk at the Victorian Saltwell Park and managed to get so close to this squirrel to be able to take his picture.


I received this vintage 1980's dress from Covert Candy. The print is slightly louder than I would usually choose but I love the neck and shoulder detail, once shortened it will be very wearable.

  5. These are great pictures! I love the ribbon box. That is such a great idea. I am such a bad wrapper I should take more time doing it as well.

    That is a gorgeous dress! It is loud for me too but I think you'll pull it off nicely!

  23. I love wrapping! But it is hard to do cute details when it's rush season, haha :) I like hoe you have a ribbon box though :) mm, I agree about that print.. but I'm sure if the dress is short it wont be as loud, if that makes any sense..

  26. I don't normally wear orange...actually I don't own anything orange, but that sweater is cute! Also I love that site, I'd never heard of it before and it seems like a good idea to swap clothes since everyone wins, yay.

  27. Your life thru the lens looks pretty cool, ma'am. Keep up the good work - and good find on the vintage dress. I think nice orange pieces are hard to come by.
