I thought I'd post some of my recent favourites on flickr in celebration of their long awaited upgrade.
If you didn't know, the other day flickr completely revamped their site and we now have access to seamless photostreams, higher resolution images and most importantly, we've all been given 1 terabyte free (!!). I had pretty much stopped using my flickr account as I was almost out of space and couldn't be bothered to either delete some photos or create a whole new account but now I'm thinking I need to jump right back on that bandwagon. After all, it was hours of scrolling through flickr and gathering inspiration that got me into the blogging scene in the first place.

Every year as I struggle to make the transition to dressing for colder weather, a myriad of lookbooks is released from the northern hemipshere, each one full of sunshine and dresses and pastels that taunt me with their summery goodness and just how much easier it is to dress in those warmer months.
So, in my true fashion, I'm obviously going to share one of those lookbooks with you lovelies just to put some salt in the wound.
The Secret Garden is the latest collection from aptly-named label, Summerland. It was photgraphed by Anja Verdugo.

Graphic designer Eva Black runs a feature on her blog that allows us a glimpse into the spaces of fellow creatives. So often we see features on beautiful homes but what's nice about this is that it focuses on the workspaces of individuals. Spaces explores the idea that what we surround ourselves with and how we curate and organise our lives has an influence over what we create.
It's extremely interesting to see where people get the bulk of their work done and I'm now itching to get my workspace organised too. Currently I do all my blogging sitting on my bed with my laptop so I think anything would be an improvement really.

The hairdresser and the jewellery maker get hitched. In the artistic/creative sense it sounds too good to be true but here in this wonderful city these things do happen and the most intricately detailed weddings do indeed take place. It's heartwarming to see the sincerity in these images but they also induce a bit of heartache because just how can everything look that good?
In other news, I set up the facebook page for my vintage clothing this morning and it would be a delight if you lovelies checked it out.
