Hiroshi Tanabe

Fashion illustration has been a love of mine, I have endless books on the subject and I often fill large spaces of time flicking through endless images.

Whilst on my final year at university I spend a lot of time researching Japanese woodblock printing and developed a love and respect for this technique and the images this technique produces.

As far as modern day illustration goes, a favourite artist of mine is Hiroshi Tanabe.
I love the mix between old and new influences demonstrated in his work.

Holly Loves!

So in my never ending quest to fulfil all of my jewellery desires I came across this little gem today.

Wendy House Rocks (the name alone earns the brand serious cool point) sells vintage-style jewellery, all the designs are handmade and to top it off they are amazingly well priced.

Here are a few of my faves...

My Birthday Vogue

A few weekends ago my Dad was clearing out the garage aka getting away from all the women in our house, and he came across the newspapers he'd kept from the day I was born...So I decided to see if I could track down a copy of my birthday Vogue (the vogue printed with the month your born).
After several hours of intense ebay bidding I was successful in purchasing January 1988. It was worth every penny! Mint condition and utterly fascinating!

New fave boutique

When it comes to clothing I'm a die hard lover of minimal chic and effortless simplicity, but when it comes to accessories, it's a completely different story!
Maybe its because accessories are smaller, therefore safer and so less can wrong!?
I like unique statement pieces... items that have a story (or at least look like they have a story). Stand out colours are a must in order to liven up the lack lustre black or grey I seem to of made a habit of living in these day. I want to be covered in mini pieces are art!

And so I have found the perfect place to fulfil all these specific requirements - 'Pretty Eccentric'. They have the most beautiful and individual items, it's like an Aladdin's cave of all things fashionable and to top it off they now have a new fragrance line, defiantly a collectable.

Vie Va La French

I'm loving French connections Spring Summer collection!
At first I was a little unsure, maybe it was because I had gotten so used to the all the blacks are greys and general darkness of winter fashion, but this collection is the complete opposite!

Beautifully feminine and wonderfully fresh, and yet still practical and well suited to our lovely English weather.

Here are a few of my favourite pieces...

Girl Crush

I watched a programme on E! the other day all about Angelina Jolie and how she become an actress, the up's and downs of her career and her crazy personal life. It completely reminded me of how much of a girl crush I have on her. She is just the definition of the word perfect... totally want to be her when I grow up :)

The wants

I don't know why but I have become so obsessed with Spring... Maybe its because we had such a chilly winter, or maybe it's working in retail and I'm fed up of lugging coats around the place. Anyway, here are a few items that are already on my 'To buy' list.

Things I need in the very near future...( but will never be able to afford)

Daisy Knights


Herve leger

Uni days

For me uni was full of major highs and major lows, guess it's that way for a lot of people. When I look back now I wish I could go back and do it again, not so much the course and the work I was doing but more the lifestyle. I wish I had been less worried and more able to enjoy myself and enjoy being a student. Despite this I did meet my Mr and I wouldn't change this for the world :)

Anyway, the reason I'm being all sentimental is because I found these pic's of the room I was renting in my third year for a few months... it's teeny!!!
