Graffiti'd London

Spray paint galore!!! I'm a big fan of Graffiti, see previous posts, when its done tastefully. I'm always snapping away as I think graffiti is such a temporary art form, turn around, and its gone!
Saturday saw me pottering round Broadway Market, I went to see my friend Lizzie's stall of trinkets and wonderments.... read her blog here, She is a talented lady making fashions and jewellery and braving the english weather every week.

I was lucky enough on my travels down to Old St to find Graffiti ACTUALLY HAPPENING. Spray cans, mess, masks, on lookers, and slightly abstract art. This estate agents was being shown who's boss.

This is pretty good too, made up of spots, look closely! Cross eye'd is under rated if you ask me.

This is one of my favs. This face has be etched out of a painted wall. Its very hard to see in a photo but the brown is brick underneath...I would recommend going to see for yourself, Found next to the Big Chill Bar just off Brick Lane. Most reasonably priced gallery is the streets of London!

Guns and Flipping Roses last nightin the O2. It was awesome. We rocked out hard with Axl Rose, during November Rain he played the piano with his foot. That in my books, is pretty cool.
Bursts of flames on stage, red and green shoots of fireworks during guitar solos. Tattoos, crazy GNR tee shirts in every direction, mohawks, men with ponytails, and some great people to share it all with. I recommend it folks, get that eyeliner on and rock it out!

The sea magnified

This is incredible. I've had this National Geograhic image stuck to my wall for the about the past year as it fascinates me. A splash of sea water magnified 15 times. Mother nature is a print designer if you ask me. Her colours, icons, scale and composition is a winner. I can't help thinking we should be putting more stuff under the microscope to see who's living there. Mmm, maybe people do. AND maybe those people are called scientists. I've just come across this pic of plankton soup of the world wide web and wanted to share. Those little guys are out there, hanging out, unseen by the human eye. the mind boggles!

Autumnal Delights

Autumn is officially here! This pleases me. It ultimately will lead straight on to winter which will please me much less. Delicious sunny cold days with walks in forests with friends, pub lunches, trees turning from yellow to gold to red.
This is Delamere forest in Cheshire where I spent a chilled weekend in the country catching up with old friends and quietly brainstorming to myself the benefits of this time of year.
This is what I've come up with so far..
*Glorious weather and refections upon a summer well spent.
* Pumpkins in the shops, inspiring me to do some carving and pumpkin pie making.
*Scented candles, ok this one isn't typical but something about this time of year makes me want to bring delicious smells from outside inside.
* new coats, boots and woolens. I have spotted this gorgeous coat by Biba. House of Fraser have re-launched this 70's labels with new key autumn pieces with fresh prints. ME LIKEY. now to find some pennies as this feline number is £165. I must have it.

Camber Sands!

Camber Sands! 3 things come to mind now when I think of the sands, firstly Inbetweeners and that episode when they go to Camber Sands caravan club. Secondly Caravans and thirdly a wonderful group of friends. So we trudled off to Camber Sands, me at the helm of my little Polo packed full of funny people to arrive to a grey grey shoreline. I always get a little over excited at a weekend away and have notoriously bad luck with the weather. his last weekend was no rained and rained and rained but I still had an incredibly fun weekend and James celebrated his 30th admirably!This is what it was supposed to look like....

This is what it did look like....

A wicked selection of people, a 3 storey log cabin, a roast dinner, silly party drinking games ,
a photoshoot and a lethal punch! What brilliant time! I now have lurgy as a result of having such a good time! Thanks guys!!x x x
