Not sure what is happening with this lighting, but it must be incredible for a baby – a lamp haven complete with lots of shadows and stories. Ooh and ahhh. Makes me think of Peter Pan for some reason. Baby Alba is going to have some top notch lighting in her room. Lamp combining an industrial structure with […]

May your home be merry and bright

By Lou Archell Christmas is nearly upon us. This time of year it is all go, and despite my constant moaning about ‘how busy I am’, I do actually love the festive season.

Oh Céline

Absolutely loving these pieces from Céline’s a/w2013 collection. Phoebe Philo has created the most elegant collection of modern and versatile pieces. Sumptuously delicate shapes, skirts gently becoming more voluminous as they hit the calf, shoulders and waists thoughtfully wrapped, deep pockets and thick cream knits paired with leather boots and accessories.

Temperley S/S 2012

My love for Temperley has only been strengthened by the S/S 2012 show. Inspired by Grace Kelly and the beauties of the silver screen, the collection is elegant, luxurious and full of theatrical and real movement. It’s not brash or blinding, but delicate and extremely beautiful. Light cream, iced blue and tan colours, sit with […]

(Nearly) Autumn = Knitwear

I am getting ahead of myself, just slightly but to me, Autumn is as exciting as spring. Actually, I think it’s more exciting than spring. I love new boots, berries on the trees and knitwear in abundance. It’s not cold enough to freeze your nose off, there are pretty red and brown leaves on the […]

The other day I met up with the stylist for the Lionheart fashion shoot. The fashion shoot is something that will have to be done artfully, as the Lionheart budget isn’t too hot. However, I – along with many other people like me – spend my time working out ways of doing what I would […]
