The hat that got the cream

So then, whose up for a casual stroll wearing one of these bad boys! After reading about Philip Treacy recently in an article (sorry, I can't remember where!) I have come over all hat obsessed. Personally, I don't even wear your bog standard woolly hat in the winter never mind anything this flamboyant, but I cannot help but admire the shear creativeness and clever aesthetics as seen in these pieces crafted to look as if it were effortless. My personal favorite is the butterfly piece, so much detail and incredibly beautiful (but I also can't help but think that it could make a great light fitting hanging from my ceiling!)

Sugar, Spice and all things nice

So, anyone who knows me will know I have a particular 'thing' about cakes. Funnily enough, I'm not actually that keen on cake, but I LOVE making them! Whilst looking for some inspiration for a close friend's up coming birthday I came across this blog called Jackie's creations and these are possibly some of the best home made designs I have ever seen. I am particularly fond of the Louis (obvz)but my favorite has got to be 'Twin story'. What do you think?

Came across this amazing shoot with Gwen Stefani from V magazine in 2008, oh how the girl crush intensifies! Lovely to see a slightly edgier, darker side rather than the bubble pop shots of her solo career. Slightly reminiscent of an young Madonna (particularly the cover shot) and, of course, these days one can't help but think anything slightly eccentric/out of the norm/anything in general is Gaga-esque. The Ladies' inspiration perhaps (it was '08!)? Who knows!


It's a Pug life

Thought I'd share some snaps of my fave ickle puggies featured in editorial and on the catwalk (bravo Mulberry). One day I shall own one myself!

Still being a terrible blogger while I sort my life out post-graduation and working an all hour job! Sorry!
