lomo // random photos in my inbox

29 Oct 2011



As the days get shorter in London, I'm spending a bit more time at home, and I've realised I have a lot of photos to post from past travels and adventures. There's still more Glastonbury to post and I don't think I ever did a post about my Tuscan cooking class all the way back in April. I went to Glasgow and Edinburg last weekend and haven't even edited photos yet!

Here's a bunch of Lomography photos I've taken though. I just found them in my inbox.

fashion // mad men 60s hat

26 Oct 2011


Check out what I picked up in Glasgow for a mere £16. I'm actually wearing it backwards, but I like it more like that! I've finally discovered the type of hat to suit my enormous head - 60s style hats. I was just bemoaning to my friend Sophie that I need her help to find me hats that suit me, but I might not need her fashion assistance so desperately now!

I've got two Mad Men themed parties coming up, so I think I might be outfit repeating just so I can wear my hat!

books // florence broadhurst


Like lots of others, I'm a huge fan of Florence Broadhurst's wallpaper designs. This is a stunning coffee table book about her life, filled with plenty of photographs of her designs and how the prints have been used to make things other thank wallpaper. She had a fascinating life... she was born in Queensland, Australia (my homestate!) and became a singer who toured the world, before settling back down in Sydney and becoming a wallpaper designer at age 60. She was brutally murdered in her apartment when she was 78 and her murder has never been solved...

Madame Grès @ Musée Bourdelle, Paris

I've still got some more Madame Grès posts lined up... only one more after this one. I just loved the exhibition so much I couldn't not post all my photos, so you, lovely readers, will just have to keep looking at photos of beautiful garments.

Speaking of readers, a big hello to all of you who are reading, because as I keep obsessively checking my stats, you're reading from the UK, Australia, USA, Canada, Alaska, Russia and Asia. Hello to all of you!

food // cheese and wine festival

18 Oct 2011

I had zero plans for the weekend until M messaged and said she was going to the Cheese and Wine Festival. That sounds like my heaven on earth. I was in!

Macarons seem to be staples everywhere now. Just like cupcakes.

This was a cheesecake stall. Let's see if I can remember them: peanut butter, raspberry and white choc, pistachio, Daim (as in the delicious chocolate/caramel bar!!), banana and choc and triple choc. I think. I think...

We settled for green tea cheesecake but my friends weren't so keen, so I ended up polishing it off.

David and David from the Outsider Tart doing a baking demo of pound cake and pumpking cheesecake. And we got to sample - delicious!

Then we sat on the deck for an hour or so, hydrated with some juice and then cracked into the caramel vodka - oh my gawd it's amazing! We had it in espresso martinis later...

We toddled back to M's and L & I came over later and brought some delicious cold meats and crusty bread and I forced everyone to watch X Factor where we thoroughly enjoyed getting our judge on.

books // cook for your life by ian thorpe

16 Oct 2011


So most people know Ian Thorpe right? He's training in the hope to swim in the Olympics next year (I'm still bummed I didn't get allocated any swimming tickets - but 3 lots of tennis!) and he's just released a cookbook, Cook For Your Life. I love food photography like this... very clean and bright and a bit Scandinavian in style.




music // john mayer

Happy Birthday John!

It's my favourite musician's birthday today. 10 years is a long time to be in any kind of relationship - mine's musical. No matter how old I get, John Mayer's always going to be my favourite because I grew up with him. Music I liked in high school will always be important to me.

Thanks John.

If you've never given his music a chance, here's my favourite songs. Check them out:
