Oh How Snazzy.

I bought these as a well done gift to myself for getting the job I went for yesterday.

(Going to Primark, I was only meant to be popping in for tights and socks... came out with these, some crazy leggings and a black maxi too.)

I am now and assistant buyer for Casabu, starting tomorrow.

How Exciting.

Light & Magic

I don't normally do this. But I couldn't help it, 

I just find this editorial absolutely beautiful, and just had to post it.

I will now have this documented forever.

Kate Moss

Off to a job interview today as a buyer.

I haven’t been shopping in what feels like forever, with the no funds, so when hunting in the back of
my wardrobe I spotted this little number, an old Kate Moss.

Aw, good purchase.

April Showers

England is taking April Showers quite literally this year.

When its raining in New York, you get over the fact that it is raining, and make the most out of being in an absolutely amazing city, but England has its downers.

Whilst unlike most places, England tends to have 3 seasons in one day, from being a beautiful morning, getting excited to wear a leather jacket (did this yesterday) it then turns to a disgusting gloom of a day, which then tends to piss it down, and blow your hair all over the place, so when you eventually get to where you were heading, you look like a complete tramp. 

This happened to me yesterday, whilst I was on my way to the screening of the short film I worked on for five days at the Southbank Centre. 

Photos of that to come later. 

But for now, I leave you with some beautiful images in the rain from New York, December 2011.

What Fun.

Standard Sunday Session

If you don't like gore, 
Look Away.

I did a taxidermy class today.

It was epic.

Seventeen people in the class, there was enough gore to go round for the week.
With strong smells and large testicles, tongues and ribs were the least of our worries.

More photo's to come later.

Working close to head of design Lee Paton a celebrated taxidermist for two weeks before his off schedule presentation A/W 13 fashion show, was a real treat and an absolute pleasure.

Pretty as a Peach.


I have been searching for a kitty for so, so long! and so one eventually ended up on my lap in a kitty box on the overground one day. It was lovely.

Meet Artilla (Atilla the Hun, said with a posh accent.) , AKA Tillie, AKA Lil' Man.


Currently he is in my bottom drawer having a snooze. I can't get enough of him.

Job hunting is boring when he's around, distracting me. Good boy Tillie.

Good boy.
