There’s nothing quite like beating the winter blues than getting stuck into an art project I find. It keeps you indoors away from the nasty chill outside and leaves you with something pretty as a result of all your effort. So sure I may have aimed a little too high this season but never mind it's all the name of fun I guess. I've recently discovered the art work of Mari Kasurinen and find what she does absolutely amazing so figured I'd get myself a My Little Pony and see what I can come up with. Here are a few of her sculptures I adore, especially the My Little Andy Warhol which is my favourite! Let me know what you think and whether you have any suggestions as to what I should make... maybe a My Little Jane Birken? (:

There are pros and cons to living so far away from America. I can't really think of any pros off the top of my head... I can however think of a huge con! That being I'm not able to shop at Fred Flare. I've found so many things on this site I want it's not funny but do they ship here? Nope! I've recently got back into photography, I'm not sure if it's because I've been seeing a lot of pretty things around or if it's because my digital camera decided to stop so needless to say I was thrilled to find what the site has to offer in the way of cameras. Even though I can't buy them now at least I know what's out there and who know maybe one day they'll ship to lil ol Australia. Anyway here are a few cameras I found on this awesome website and the effects the make. Let me know what you think...
Aren't they adorable? Argh I want them all so bad... one day, right ;)

I've been seriously thinking about travelling to Mexico next year with friends which has led me to learn various Spanish phrases from a friend who is Spanish. Don't you find that when you start to think about something a lot the presense of various things linked to this become more obvious? Well I do and so because I'm learning Spanish I'm noticing the culture a lot more these days. So I guess it comes as no suprise that this Vogue Editorial from 2007 really caught my attention the other day when I was flicking through old issues. I think it's just great especially since it suits my current state of mind. Isn't she just gorgeous!
Oh yeah and it's Friday, yay!! So have a good weekend everyone xxx

When I think about pin ups the words old fashion, sexy and style come to mind. Well I think this site personifies all of this minus the old fashion... more like sexy, style with a modern flare. I've always loved pin up posters so fell in love with this site as soon as I stumbled across it. I love how an illustrator can really take us into a fantasy world, creating images that are totally impossible yet so appealing and this is exactly what you find here. While some can be more risqué than others there's such a great variety of pin ups on this site I think you'd all do well to check it out. Here are few of my favourites:
Isn't is amusing to think that when this vixen started out tall models weren't even considered desirable in Paris? Well 6'1" Veruschka sure showed them! She is an absolute stunner and one hell of a fashion icon to boot. Her book is another one I've added to my wish list for the winter. Despite spending her childhood living in great wealth on an enormous estate it tells the tale of her dramatic and sad upbringing after her father was executed for attempting to assassinate Hitler when she was 5 years old. After his death the remaining family members spent their time in labour camps until the end of World War II when her family was left penniless and carries right on from there to her rise to fame. I think it'd be a fascinating read, don't you?
