Flower Power

Tuesday, June 30, 2009
I love that Twitter is helping me discover lots of lovely new things to covet from afar....
"Petal to the Metal" neckpieces (love the name almost as much as the actual necklaces) by Make Believe

Free People handmade "one of a kind" floral necklaces

Half full or half empty?

Shoes as art

Thursday, June 25, 2009
I've written about my love for Paul Smith's mens shoes before and yet again I am yearning for footwear that's just too big for me

Like little pieces of art for your feet!

Tip your hat

Wednesday, June 24, 2009
I'm a hat person, summer and winter. Right now I'm coveting straw hats...
whether they're mini
or just plain cute
And here's a girl who knows how to rock the squished hat look, from one of my favourite new streetstyle blogs by Vanessa Jackman

I want to ride my bicycle

Tuesday, June 16, 2009
Thanks to Katie for the heads up on these insanely wonderful Alexander Girard bicycles (I don't know why I want to call them "bicycles" and not "bikes." They look more like bicycles to me!)
Bicycles by Electra

Forget about the cat getting the cream, Maureen had put a stop to that

Clickety click to see Maureen in all her glory :)

The first time I went to America, when I was about 9, I remember being entranced by the jello adverts on tv. I think it was the song (it's aliiiiiive!) that sold it for me but it made me sad we don't embrace jelly in quite the same musical way over here!

I know this would probably be a great DIY project but...sigh...I love this jacket.

Snigger snigger, tee hee hee

Thursday, June 04, 2009
I remember the first time I came across this shop in Brighton and giggling girlishly behind my hand at its name. Now I snigger...a sign of maturing? I think not :)

Names aside, Pussy Home Boutique sell some fantastic bits and bobs and some lovely homeware. I think I may indulge for the great bedroom makeover.

Tatty Devine cufflinks (am I the only one who keeps these old fashioned price stickers?)

Little kits, perfect pressies
