Holla! Ain’t no stoppin’ me. Copywritten, so don’t copy me. I have been making like a crazy lady for upcoming vintage fair thingy AND planning on going to Paris for Sam’s birthday. You know I love all things French: Eric Cantona, Sebastien Tellier, Brie, the phrase ‘ca suffit!’ (that’s enough), Brigitte Bardot, Coco Chanel, Pain […]
Hola! How’s it going? It’s been a long week. From homeboys ‘bigging up’ my crochet on the bus, to a five-year old saying that I look like a boy then losing my diary AND THEN eating the spiciest Mongolian beef evah! It’s been busy but fun. I even had a lie in on Wednesday. I […]

I discovered Neil Young. What a revelation. I moved to Holland for a short time […]
Yeah. I can sense it. Come on Spring. You don’t fool me with your minus temperatures. I can take it. I can drink tea to keep warm. I can ride it. You, however, can’t hide from me – I saw the daffodils blooming the other day. There’s also Easter eggs in Tesco. You, sir/lady, have […]
My eyes hurt. There are beads everywhere. In fact, I think I dropped one in my Pepsi Max and swallowed it. But I am still alive. Just about. I’m a person that doesn’t do things by halves, in that, once I love something, that’s it. I am a beading addict. Today, I finished this: Mental.
