it girl

i’m surprised hollywood hasn’t made a movie about clara bow yet, who had a classic rags to riches tale with a semi sad and tragic ending. i must admit i didn’t know much about her, apart from admiring pictures of that classic twenties flapper look and that she was a famous actress of the silent screen.

wolves cafe posted such a great little playlist at their blog the other day, so i decided i’m going to share one i’ve been playing quite often lately (i’m an obsessive playlist maker). some mellow, some happy, some old & some new stuff.

pet sounds

i am such an incredible sap for pictures of people’s pets.

i don’t ever feature contemporary men’s fashion because (a) i have no interest in it and (b) 99% of the time it’s too metro looking for my liking. do people still use that term, metrosexual? well i hope you understand what i mean. it’s more about aesthetics really – i appreciate men who don’t wear their pants down their bums, who steer clear of t-shirts with arbitrary slogans (or anything made by ed hardy), who wear clean shoes, who tuck in their shirts, who don’t undo their buttons all the way down to their chests, who don’t wear jewellery – things that are just supposed to come naturally. other than that i don’t really group men and fashion in the same category.

care free

wouldn’t mind feeling like this right now.

instead have deadlines to meet and birthday presents to buy and a slight wine hangover to deal with. things have been a bit lackluster around here but i promise i’ll perk it up soon enough!
