Ooooo, how cute. Look, my nails are all covered in cute little characters. Awww, isn’t that sweet? They even match my book.
Ahem. I have a penchant for anything immature and child like. Honestly, the more ridiculous the better. I’m currently planning a superhero themed bathroom (much to everyone’s distaste)… I swear, it’s going to be awesome. The main focal point will be a clear ‘KAPOW’ shower curtain (I just need to find a place to make it because actually no one stocks proper superhero bathroom stuff… it’s all weird creatures I’ve never seen before).
Anyway, as you might know Meadham Kirchhoff is all the rage in London. After their ‘cute as a button’ ballerina x wild dancing girl show two seasons ago I was sold for life. As much as I’d like one of their adorable little kitty t-shirts and their big batting eyes cardigan*… I can’t bring myself to spend that sort of money on a T-shrt and cardigan. But, I can handle 7 quid for a pair of Nail Rocks from Topshop. Don’t believe what it says on the package though, they do not last 10 days and they aren’t easy to put on. It took Shini and I about an hour to get them on… and afterwards they still looked a bit like a mentally deranged child had gone mental with her stickers. I didn’t really care though because they are just SO FREAKING CUTE.
* hello, have you SEEN my eyelashes? Was this cardi not MADE FOR ME?
Mmmmm… [long pause]
That was me exhaling a gigantic breath of relief. London is wonderful but whenever I step off a plane at Zurich airport and head towards my bed I feel like I’m entering into some quasi-therapuetic post-psychotic dream. I’m pretty much in heaven because it’s so chilled out here. I managed to score a couple new wardrobe staples while I was away so I’m feeling slightly less distraught over my less-than-capable wardrobe. In other news: today I chased down a red heart balloon, watched crazy capoeira boys in the park and thought that public toilets in Zurich came with complimentary showers and hair dryers. Apparently not, but there are little holes to dispose of your needles. How very thoughtful of you Eveline.
Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! xx

Last week I had the absolute pleasure of meeting up with In Detail to shoot a little story and talk jewelry. It was so fun as I went with Louisa who has the most outrageous collection of jewelry. Beanie, the creator of the site is such a total babe. She was so sleek and sophisticated with her tight pulled back ponytail and multiple ear cuffs. Harry, who shoots for the site (and designed it?!) is amazing too. We’d been e-mailing about making some changes to the layout of my blog (I’m USELESS when it comes to html) so it was awesome to finally meet in real life and discover they are as incredible as I’d hoped they would be. Plus, I discovered how amazing eggs royale are. I’m now obsessed.
How awesome is Louisa’s pink Judy Blame safety pin necklace? I expected it to be crazy heavy but it’s actually light as a feather. Yummy.
Hiiiii from London. Yes, I’m still here. I’m writing to you from the sofa of Charlie and Lexxie’s house where I’ve been staying. Thankfully they haven’t thrown me to the streets yet. The UK’s bipolar weather patterns are starting to wear on me. Clear skies are a massive rarity. When they hit people go mental with excitement and sweaty men decide it’s acceptable to walk around with their shirts off (eww). The weekend was awesome because it was el scorchio which meant I could go bare legged. Nothing makes me happier. Now it’s freaking freezing again. Boo. The misery.
Completely obsessed with this simple slouchy silk dress. Love the oversized arm holes and elongated back. Thank god I put on a pair of shorts underneath – the wind was acting like a nasty mother. Marilyn Monroe might be chic but no one needs to see my (heart print) pants.
p.s. flowers are officially my favorite accessory for spring.
Wearing: Topshop Boutique dress, Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses, Converse and clutch by Style Slicker.
