A perfect breakfast?

Obviously the coffee needs to be substituted for a nice cup of tea but doesn't this just look glorious?
Oh how I wish I could get The LB Times in my local newsagents, unfortunately I'll just have to settle for the digital copy - which comes complete with amazingly cute animated Louboutin's that stomp across the screen.

I ❤ you Bayswater

Cookie Monster

You know when you're a bit hungover and you crave, well, everything really? Today I'm leaning horrifically towards biscuits, I wish I had something a bit more exciting than hobnobs to nibble on though...

As we kiss goodbye the sun sets

Today the world has been shocked by the tragic, although not entirely unexpected, death of Amy Winehouse. A true legend who's individual style and amazing talent will be remembered for years to come.

My thoughts are currently with her family and friends, and rightly or wrongly, 'her Blake'. 

Amy tats available on EBay

Fit for a princess

Speaking of cool kids, check out Lanvin's amazing Resort collection.

Inspired by Jeanne Lanvin‘s daughter, Marguerite, Alber Elbaz's petit range is brimming with  ballet shoes, to-die-for tulle dresses and, of course, beautifully crafted dolls. 

Victoria Beckham and Suri Cruise take note.

C is for....

I love scrabble and I love this Rock n Rose necklace (now only a fiver on Brand Alley). My fella used to like Scrabble too but quickly went off it after he realised he was never going to beat me.

Now, do I get 'C' for CHAMPION or 'U' for UNBEATEN?

P.S If you plan to shop at Brand Alley leave your email address in my comments and we can score a £10 voucher each.


Sisters are doin' it

"My look today is Virgin Suicides meets Twiggy! Right now I’m into a long, flowing, flower-power vibe" ~ Elle Fanning. US Vogue.

She's only thirteen?! Really? Elle Fanning's style references make her sound much older.
Elle is currently fronting the A/W 2011 Marc by Marc Jacobs campaign and is the on the cover of the latest LOVE magazine, why wasn't I this cool when I was thirteen...actually why am I not this cool now?


         .....and I shook hands with the UCA chancellor who is none other than Zandra Rhodes ❤ ...... 

...Then I got a bit piddly and the boy lost his phone so this is basically the only picture I have to prove it : (

Violent lips

Selfridges have just launched these 'Violent Lips' temporary lip tattoos which are 'Designed to last four to eight hours, easy to apply and can be removed by using baby oil'. 

I'm not sure how these would fit in to mine (or anyone else's - except maybe Gaga's) everyday beauty routine - but I have to admit I'm a sucker for polkadots so perhaps I'd consider the dotty version for a festival or something of the like.

Would you rock a violent lip?

Flowers in the Attic

If I had some extra pennies this week, I would definitely be spending them over at Rock n Rose's Attic Sale - where all these vintage treasures are currently half price. There's only a few of each item so snap them up before it's too late.

Just Keep Swimming...

As you may have gathered from previous posts, I am in the process of planning my next adventure now that uni is finished and my mature student status is over (I graduate next week - 2:1). 

I've been saving up for what seems like forever, and I've finally raised enough for my flights to Thailand and Australia in November.

I've still got a long way to go saving wise, especially as my bf of six years and I are planning to get married whilst we're away. 

However on this rainy day on the South Coast, November truly seems a million miles away so I felt a tiny bit of inspiration was in order to get me through my 12 hour devil shift from hell tomorrow...
