GOODBYE SWEET SWEET SUMMER


We had such a wonderful summer in NYC this year. Swimming in the rockaways, biking everywhere, eating 2 gelatos a day! Ahhhh! I'm seriously grieving it's departure already! We took these photos at dusk post a great day outside and the light has this beautiful silver tinge.

FLASHBACK TO FRIDA !


Throughout all the travels some places just really stick in your mind more than others and magical Mexico City was truly one of those. I feel emotional just thinking about it - the city is so full of vitality and insanity, my favourite kind of combination! Sadly I was only there for 3 days but itching to head back as soon as I can.

Mexico City also know as D.F. (stands for Distrito Federal) seriously fuels all the senses, every day was spent living in colour with our bellies and eyes full! 

We made a stop to Frida Kahlo's blue house which is one of the most serene and special places I've ever been to. Filled with amazing cacti and greenery and splashed of moroccan electric blue paint and stone, it's what I would be happy to call my dream home. 

Vogue Mexico have curated a wonderful exhibition based on her style in the guest cottage on the property.

I'm planning to go back in the new year and the trip just can't come round quick enough!

END OF SUMMER DAYZ


I'm seriously crying big wet tears - I'm such a summer baby that I can't face the fact it's nearly over. I'm grieving with a somewhat heavy heart. I'm currently working in Germany and it's full on autumn here already. Bless you summer of 2014 - I loved every minute I had with you!

CRAZY 4 U JACQUEMUS!!!

I only recently just discovered french womenswear label - JACQUEMUS!

How has it taken me this long!? I feel like I've been hiding under a giant ass rock, in the dark.

In the grand scheme of things I actually really struggle to find labels that are 'SO ME' but this one feels like its ticking ALL MY BOXES. Yung genius Simon Porte Jacquemus of Jaqucemus is a self taught 24 year old DREAMBOAT designer who's work reminds me of a young cutie pie junior rei kawakubo.

Their visual everything is full of dreamy colours, deconstructed cuts and cute teenage angst. He describes his creative process > he makes a film, takes photos and then creates the clothes to go with that idea. He is obviously MAGIC and I NEED EVERYTHING!!!

Here are a few shots from their A/W 14' collection that I just can't get over!

See more magic HERE >>> AHHH I DIE!!!!

CARA STRICKER X MAKE LOVE TO THE WORLD


I'm lucky enough to have so many wonderful women in my life and my dear friend Cara Stricker is definitely one of those magical women. Crazily enough we met as teenagers on holiday and our multi-decade cross continental romance began ever since. After all our years of penmanship we now live a blissfully short distance from each other in Brooklyn. While we all still feel like we're 'figuring life out', Cara in the meantime has become a gut-wrenchingly talented, one of a kind photographer, director and all round beautiful artist. She recently had her first exhibition 'Make Love To The World' at The Hole gallery and I was honoured to be photographed for it along with some other very magical humans.

See the rest of the photos from the exhibition HERE
