After spending three great weeks in the US I’ve just arrived to Sweden for Christmas. I spent the day wandering around Uppsala, shivering in the cold. It’s minus 5 here and apparently it’s ‘not that bad’. While my hosts assure me that some years it’s really cold (minus 25), I’ll be spending the next two weeks in so many layers that I can hardly move.
I’ve been having loads of fun lately playing with a new little toy I got for my iPhone. It’s an attachment that does fisheye and wide angle shots. I was afraid the quality would be rubbish but it actually works really well. It’s perfect for capturing colder than cold environments.
I hope wherever you are your getting into the Christmas feeling! xx
While driving over to downtown St Louis to scout graffiti walls it occurred to me that blogging is a very strange thing indeed. Do I spend my days lazily leaning against paint splattered walls? No. Am I willing to drive across town in search for one to take a picture by? Yes.
When Gap asked me to pick out my favourite items from their current collection to be put into a Christmas wish list I jumped at the opportunity. The brand has long been one of my favourites. Whenever I’m back in the US I make a beeline for their shop to stock up on basics – as I’m sure you already know, they’re the best.

I love new pieces of technology. Ever since I received this Samsung Galaxy Note it has been glued to my side. I use it mostly for just browsing the web. It’s a great little companion and looks super cute tucked inside this Nicholas Kirkwood graphic leather case.
These photos were taken on a rainy day last week in Zurich. I’m currently in the US on holiday with my family and it feels like these photos are from a million miles away. I’m out here for the next few weeks so expect lots of cheesy American themed photo shoots coming up.
Wearing: Gap coat, 7 for all Mankind jeans and Topshop boots.
I’m usually really not into red. I think it’s a bit brash and doesn’t really suit me. Lately though I’ve taken a liking to it. Next to pale skin it brings a burst of colour that makes winter skin feel a bit more lively. I’m currently obsessed with this YSL rouge volupte lipstick. Whack it on with even the dullest of outfits and suddenly everything feels a bit more fabulous. I’ve also pulled out this old buffalo checked red flannel shirt from the bottom of my wardrobe – it’s perfect for chilly days.
Hope you’re enjoying the transition into winter. xx
During London Fashion Week one of the shows I was most looking forward to was Charlie Mays. This was the first season that Charlie put on a catwalk show and I was so excited to see her collection saunter down the runway. On the day I got to shoot some of the action backstage before the show. Everything was so organized and well run. You wouldn’t at all expect that this was just Charlie’s third season showing.
The SS13 collection is absolutely stunning. The first look that came down the catwalk was a top and trouser velvet combo in a shade of icy blue. It was my favourite look from the entire collection and I can just imagine myself wearing it now (perfection). There’s also a nude coloured biker jacket, asymmetric shorts and classic white silk shirts that would be incredibly useful in anyone’s wardrobe. Charlie’s collections just keep getting better and better each season as she hones in what her design aesthetic is. I already can’t wait to see what see what’s in store for next season.
