Richie Loop- Good Memories

I don't understand it- 'my cup stays in my cup'?!- but I love it and it reminds me of why I want to live in the Caribbean. Thank you Em H. and Jules- bring on the rum!

Triple Canopy

Triple Canopy's 'She goes covered' is a fascinating article that I found through Etsy- it tells you all about wig makers and the human hair trade. I love learning about these very specialised aspects of our society that often go unremarked and unacknowledged.
It also reminded me of how little we realise the strange journey that a lot of the products we see around us have made- the wig Beyonce is wearing on stage started out as long hair cut from a woman in a small village in Peru.

Following the global hair trade, from the braid-laden Peruvian highlands to the sheitel machers of Borough Park.

Eat, Pray, Love for this house!

I would eat, pray, and love pretty much whatever you told me to for this house. 
I don't even mind that I've revealed to you that I've seen the film...that's how much I want to be living in this house as soon as possible.
 Preferably somewhere as warm and tropical as Bali..I'm not sure how pleasant this layout would be in Slough.

Giddy Spinster Stiletto Planters

"The concept is about hard-working women, the increasingly artificial
nature of American femininity, and the impossible images that women
face in our society. It's a prickly, spiky, sticky situation..."

Love em or hate em. I think these upcycled stilettos are cool.

If you want one in your house but sadly not on your foot, get one here.

Read more about cringingly cool shoe planter mastermind Rachel Mahlke here. She's cool too.

Brights & Stripes from Fair+True

Thank God for the resurgence of COLOUR this season. I felt trapped a khaki-beige fog. The start of a new season is always a bad time for me. Fashion feels new, fresh and exciting and I always find myself wanting to add to my already bulging wardrobe. So far I have managed to keep a firm grip on my purse strings, even though I only shop ethically part of that is not buying things just for the sake of it, even if it is from Oxfam. Anyway, if I do relent I will most certainly be buying one of the above ensembles from Fair+true, made from modal in the UK. Orange is my absolute favourite colour ... I'm thinking with the pink vest for some serious spring colour therapy.

A home in Uraguay

The most perfect home. I'd just have lighter walls because I'm obsessed with light. but completely perfect. other than that.
