Hauntingly beautiful

I want an Akina book! Every time I look on the site they're all sold out. But I guess this comes as no surprise really. Here's the Teddy Bears Picnic book I've recently missed out on:

Isn't it stunning? Lang Leav is the brain child behind this awesome label. As stated in her websites bio she's come from humble beginnings but has now established herself as a multi -award winning fashion designer. Here are a few of her 'villains'

I love how the images she creates are described as hauntingly beautiful, translating them into exquisite hand finished garments. She surely is one that has a lot of talent and is not afraid to use it. And as for me, I've now subscribed to the website so won't be missing out in the future.

Back in the day

Were you a weird kid? I was. I remember thinking how great it'd be to be old enough to drive around with all your friends and take photos of people who had mullets. Yep you did read correct, mullets. I don't even know why but I just figured it'd be interesting since everyone I knew that had a mullet also had a pretty different lifestyle to go with it. Then I would come back from my summer vacation and display my photos all blown up at some awesome art gallery in the city. I think I have these two to blame for my obsession maybe? enjoy ;)

I'm leaving on a jet plane...

To go to New Zealand... this afternoon in fact! I'm going back for my best friends wedding which I’m incredibly excited about since I get to be Maid of Honour. I'm so slack and have no idea what's going on except that the wedding is at a fancy country club near Auckland and my dress is going to be black with red jewellery. So there will be a lot of catching up for me to do next week before the wedding!! Got the Hens night tomorrow too which will be load of fun, we're going to some nice cocktail bars in the city and I've bought this awesome Cow girl hat for her to wear too, I can't wait!! I'll be sure to post photos when I get back. Don't miss me too much ;) I'll miss reading all your lovely blogs xoxo

Jasper Goodall = Legend

One of my latest favourite graphic designers is Jasper Goodall. He has an exhibition showing at the moment in London (boo) called Poster Girl. I think he's found an outstanding way exhibit fantasy/fetish/whatever you like to call it. As stated in the blurb he's all about the erotic art, which I have nothing against... I think he's an absolute genius! I love things which show a naughty vs. nice side and while the ones I've chosen are a bit on the tame side if you click on the link you'll see what else he's capable of. Enjoy!
