Come show time in the fashion industry I love seeing what particular designers have come up with, what design elements they are throwing together this time. Some rarely disappoint such as Marc Jacobs and Prada - generally as I love the Mix and Clash aesthetic. This time I'm particularly loving Miu Miu for throwing lace in with prints while keeping classic silhouettes. The handbags, boots and shoes are a colourful and contemporary while the mini cape is a bit cute. Wont be trying out the red eyeshadow though....

Like so many others I often see the new year as an opportunity to overhaul my life a bit. This usually begins by a huge house clean done, sporadically over a few days, which leaves me feeling spiritually lighter.......ok, not really, but at least rid of the house dust thats been collecting since October when I generally lose the plot and surrender any vague illusion that I am in control of my life. And at least now I'm able to open my craft supplies cupboard without receiving a concussion from a large box of beads, various salvaged rusty items and a small glue gun. The craft supplies cupboard was long overdue. It had got to the point where I was just avoiding it and the reproach it represented of so many unfinished projects. I made tough decisions about what was never going to get done, what was never going to get used and out it went. Below is a photo of the amazing NEW craft cupboard and it's new streamlined order. Okay, now I'm just showing off.
