OUTFIT POST


I was on the ASOS blog today, doing a sort of embarassing ~blogger~ pose!

Headscarf - vintage, Poncho - Vila, Brogue creepers - ASOS, Blouse - M/Olive

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, there is so much I want to write about but so little time. My landlord is being a nightmare and between writing letters to them (the Law degree is coming in handy) and preparing for a big  meeting at work tomorrow, time has been scarce.
I really cannot wait to share the photos from the Street Art tour I took last weekend in East London, it was truly inspirational!
In other news, I've just booked a trip to New York for my landmark birthday which is looming, please give me your must sees (and in particular your must shops!).

Normal service will resume this weekend, it's a promise. Thanks for continuing to read and hi to my new readers!

NEW HAIR

So I had my heartbroken again and decided it was time for a change.


I feel like I'm channelling my 15 year old self, though my hair is thanking me that I've upgraded from Wella Colour Mousse.

OUTFIT POST

Buying things in two colours is the ultimate in materialism (I'm sure I've said this before) but I love this maxi kimono jacket so much, I'm wearing it today in a different colourway! (This is what I wore at the weekend).



Jacket - Oh My Love
Shorts - Flying A
Body - ASOS

BLEACH

Thinking of doing something crazy - like DIY in my own bathroom crazy.

Or maybe I'll just go to Bleach London and let them have their way with me.

COLOUR CLASHING

The colour clashing in the Acne Resort show is just dreamy! Cos will be all over this in an instant.



ACTS OF KINDNESS

I love Random Acts of Kindness by Danny Wallace, so Art on the Underground's latest project really appeals to me. Artist Michael Landy has selected real stories of kindness on the tube and displayed them in trains and stations. It's so rare for people to even talk on the tube, it's quite heartwarming to read the stories.

CALLÉJON DE HAMEL

Calléjon de Hamel is an amazing street in Havana known as the centre of Afro-Cubanism. I was lucky enough to visit it in person while I was in Cuba. The work of Cuban artist Salvador Gonzáles Escalona the murals and sculptures there are heavily influenced by the Cuban religion, Santeria and were created using available paint and every day objects, bathtubs, old tills..
On Sunday's you can see people dancing to the rumba rhythms which is said to invoke the Orishas (Santeria Gods).

(Check out the voodoo doll under the pavement and the tiger striped cat who seemed to fit in with his surroundings..)

All photos taken by me. Use with credit please.
