What happens when you die?

September 8, 2014










I’ve been thinking about this a lot. Not particularly about when I physically die, but what will happen to the photos I’ve been posting online all this time?

What if someone saves my photos in a hard drive? What if that hard drive is found some time in the future, in a flea market or something of that sort? Will I be gracing the pages of the future Pinterest as an oddity or a typical citizen of our time, wearing some funky clothes? Anonymously, most likely. Just an anonymous smiley face like many others.

We will never know what’s going to happen, but I would like to think that we (by we, I mean anyone who takes pictures these days, particularly digitally) don’t do it in vain. If my photos will give some future lady the same pleasure I get from seeing fun photos from past decades, it’ll all be worth it.

Photos taken as usual, at the North Acton Cemetery, during a lunch break. Will be joining the ladies over at Visible Monday with my simple outfit, comprising a TK Maxx dress, a second hand satchel, some tights bought on sale from Primark and some really really old sparkly Zara flats. . I am also happy to announce that there will be lot’s of blogging this week around these parts. Yay!


Summer Style

August 18, 2014





A couple of weeks ago I went to Northampton for the first time, to see some friends. We had a lovely weekend and a very good laugh. Filipa was there too so I asked her to take these photos for me, for old time’s sake. It was really good fun!
I’ve been busy lately, with friends visiting, getting involved in interesting projects and generally enjoying life in London. I’m trying to be better with blogging, but I am sure that it’ll get better when the weather gets cold – I tend to avoid going out when it’s too cold, haha. For now, I’ll try to carry on blogging, as much as possible.

What I wore: Jacket – Zara, Skirt – H&M via Ebay, Stripy top – Vintage, handmade by my late great Aunt Irene, Satchel – Second hand, via blog sale, Tights – Walmart (I think), Shoes – Dune, via TK Maxx, Headband – Savers, Sunnies – Betsey Johnson, via TK Maxx

I’m joining the lovely ladies at Share- In – Style this week, join us with your own Summer outfit at Sacramento’s!


How to Mix Patterns

June 30, 2014

I love mixing patterns. I do. I’ve been doing it more and more often.
I think the main secret is to stick to a colour scheme -see what I did here? Other than that. just do what you feel looks right. Just don’t be boring!

My friend Andrea makes the prettiest handmade crochet accessories! She even started her own brand, called le Carré – You may have noticed the link to her shop in the side bar already.
She sent me this adorable pair of cuffs but she also makes some really lovely collars, for both humans and cats. The cat crochet collars make me squeal with so much cuteness, you should go over and take a look!
