Beatrice Boyle Gasp

Beatrice Boyle’s Beauties

I recently stumbled upon the work of illustrator/painter/designer/artist Beatrice Boyle, and I am somewhat captivated by it. Originally using images from magazines, but now also creating her own photographs from scratch, Boyle takes flawless fashion and destroys it with paint; but in doing so, creates a wholly new and beautiful image. Triptych I, II and … Continue reading

Lots of love for Tessa Metcalfe

LAQA & Co Fat Lip Pencil in Wolfman

I Love the Wolfman

(No, for once I’m not referring to a man with a beard, however much I adore them.) I am not much of a believer in fate, although at times, when life seems complicated and confusing, great comfort can be found in relying on ‘some consequence yet hanging in the stars’. But you know what? The … Continue reading

Cath Kidston SS14

Picnics, Posies & Pachyderms

Paladin of pretty prints, it comes as little surprise that Cath Kidston’s new season collection is quite delightful. I’ve never really taken much notice of ‘The Home of Modern Vintage’ in a sartorial capacity but upon viewing the SS14 look book, I’d be wise to revise this. From teapots to those classic spots, budgies, giraffes … Continue reading


Let’s Talk About Sex

For one reason or another, sex and all the trappings that come with it – be that physical or emotional, good or bad – have been on my mind more than usual lately; so when I came across this blog yesterday I felt compelled to share it (I wasn’t just Googling ‘sex’ by the way). … Continue reading

Making LFW look like a sprint, this marathon month has brought with it a fair few delights, some of which are as follows… Sophia … Continue reading

Kim Kardashian swimsuit selfie

The Brag Hag

So it seems that in modern society it has become perfectly acceptable to show off at any given moment. Instagram with its array of flattering filters has not only made everyone photographers, but self-portrait artists – cue the #selfie. A form of documentation, the selfie is purely a means of brandishing your beauty about the … Continue reading

Wayne Lawrence, Orchard Beach: The Bronx Riviera

Wayne’s World

I recently came across Brooklyn-based photographer Wayne Lawrence‘s work courtesy of my daily trawl of the Mail Online (I know, the shame), but lucky I did, because I think his work is pretty awesome. In his latest series and book, Orchard Beach: The Bronx Riviera, award-winning Lawrence documents the grim-yet-glamorous Orchard Beach, a man-made ‘retreat’ frequently referred … Continue reading
