illustrator Anna Gleeson made a playful, illustrated take on the age-old classic: the nudie calendar. do you guys still page directly to your birth month when looking at a calendar? i have always mentally high-fived myself whenever i get a great page in September. the two-colour riso printed calendar is available to buy here – order soon as it’s only available for a few days before Anna goes on holiday.

What i REALLY want Gift Guide by Miss Moss

Seriously, this is what I really want totally last minute self-indulgent Gift Guide

people have been asking whether i was going to do gift guides this year, and to be honest we are having a really small Christmas this side – our families on either side are getting so big that shopping for everyone becomes a really expensive affair. so mostly, we just try to keep things small and simple. yet i am still receiving harried texts and emails from loved ones asking – what do YOU want for christmas? it’s a tough question because i don’t really want anyone to buy me anything. give me a bag of christmas cookies and i’m good to go.

Miss Moss: My Favourite Albums of 2014

i must apologise for dropping the ball on Mid Week Distraction this week, it pained me to do it – but things have been too crazy round here. there are only 7 working days left of the year in my personal calendar, and of course EVERYONE wants their projects finished before people go on leave. not to mention social commitments like seeing family and friends and attending christmas parties (and buying gifts!) and the whole toot. so needless to say i haven’t even glanced over the internet this past week, so there are actually no distractions to be had…

Miss Moss: Unknown Summer
Vintage

Unknown Summer

i found these images while trawling around the LIFE archives, with no explanation as to who took them, when, or where. i’m guessing this was sometime in the twenties or thirties? and it looks like it might have been somewhere in Europe – originally i thought maybe they were Swedes, but that old school Nivea Creme tin made me wonder if they were German. well, looks like they had a pretty good time either way.

Houghton Bride FW15

whatever, i would wear any of these dresses even if i weren’t getting married.  the Houghton Bride FW15 collection is bad ass. “I am creating a bridal collection for the woman who wants to get married in something simple, sexy and timeless.” says Katharine Polk, the designer behind Houghton. i’d say you nailed it, Katharine.

if you follow me on Instagram you may have caught some photos that i was sharing from my mom’s photography trip to Morocco. she first picked up a camera in her fifties and started taking photos with slide film, then eventually transitioned to digital. she now regularly goes on photography trips with her friends, most recently to Morocco – but she’s also been to Cuba, Bhutan, Turkey, Canada and all over Europe.

December: the best month and also the worst month. best because holidays, christmas, family, food, summer (for us, at least), etc etc. worst because – how the heck is it December already? just an ever present reminder that time flies and you probably didn’t get to do everything you wanted to this year.
