Dear diary

I've always been a bit of a picture person myself. Even now if an autobiography has photos in the middle I'm more likely to buy it. So I guess it's no suprise that I find Hedi Slimanes photo diary so attractive. Here are a few of his entries I thought you might appreciate also

I must say its incredibly hard to chose just a few from 1272 so you might want to check the site out yourself...

Window Zoo

I heard about this delightful idea thanks to Flickr many many moons ago when I was completely addicted to the site. The idea is that you attach the decal to a window and then voila you have Window Zoo. I find it such a cute idea since I'm forever seeing shop windows/displays I would love to photograph and including the decal makes the idea so much more appealing. I think I prefer the one looking from the outside in, although it seems that they are pretty few and far between with the majority being from the inside out. I have attached a few from both sides of the window so you can have a glimpse of what this is all about

Paris gets her puppies out

I was never much of a Paris Hilton fan, especially after seeing House of Wax. But since then I've became addicted to Simple Life and now find her hilarious. I find it interesting to see what other people think about her since so many of my friends can't stand the sight of her. I think she's got a great sense of humour and is in fact pretty switched on. I don't know, maybe it's because I see her as a fun and free-spirited person and so think I can relate to her on some level. Anyhoo here are a few pics of her for Guess with her well known accessory Tinkerbell.

Let me know what you think xx

Face your pockets!

This is officially my new favourite website. It's so interesting to not only see what goodies people keep in their pockets but also the face to go with them. Unreal. Some can be down right creepy but most of them are so interesting to look at. I especially love the ones where they have their eyes closed, it almost looks like some of them are under water. Here are a few of my favourites I thought you might like too

I tried to give it a go too but found it down right impossible to get a decent one of my face, tried my best. If anything it's made me appreciate the site even more!

My style icon...

We all have a style icon I'm sure. I have had others but I think Jane Birkin is particularly special to me because she's brunette so an easy one to copy! Her clothes are stylish but not over the top. Also she's the reason I wanted to get a blunt fringe in the first place. Here's a few of my favourite photos of her

What a stunner!

Enjoy and have a good weekend xx

Wants versus Needs

I have great difficulty distinguishing needs over wants. Which is probably why there’s a huge stack of (unread) magazines in my apartment but no milk. Here are a few of my current needs and wants. See if you can tell which one’s which

Plane ticket home for the wedding

Chanel snowboard

Bass Guitar

Skateboard decks to put up on walls of my room

Contact lenses

Bloch flats

Huffer Hoodie


Digital SLR Camera


Space invaders wall decal

30th Anniversary present for parents

Aren't the wants so much prettier than the needs? I'm sure by next week these will be completely different. Or should I say, my wants will be completely different and my needs will probably not have changed at all.
