There’s not really much direction in this post, but today I have been getting especially excited about nice houses and interiors after looking on Design*Sponge at the Sneak Peeks! I do love a good snoop about someone else’s house!

Anyways I love this one in particular! I can’t wait to have a place to fill with junk furniture and other awesome cr*p! 😛 Hopefully I’ll be able to make it look as lovely as this:

This is the apartment of Christine Martinez of Lama Designs,  I love all the vintage accessories and furniture mixed with the bright colours and modern artwork, it looks like such a fun and sunny place to live! You can really see the links between the Latin American influence and the items in her shop, and her home. Apparently this was all done on a very small budget, which I think makes it all the better. It certainly gives me hope!!

Finally! I am sooooo colour coding my books!!! 😀 *geek*

Thanks again to Design*Sponge for all the inspiration, info and photos that I have nicked here 🙂


Just a short post about the craziness that is Bompas & Parr, who I just discovered whilst having a lunchtime look at Wee Birdy (which is now in my blogroll).

“Bompas & Parr creates fine English jellies, designs bespoke jelly moulds and curates spectacular culinary events.”

They have jelly wedding cakes, cocktails, buildings, aeroplanes and even glow in the dark jelly! I like how weird they look!

The thing that really caught my eye wasn’t exactly to do with jelly but…they had a breathable cocktail event in London town where gin and tonic was vapourised to form a ‘breathable cloud’ that guests entered. Crazy, sounds lots of fun!


Woop! Finally got my first set of Lomo photos developed…lots of them didnt come out…lots of them were a bit boring…these were good!

I like the soft quality of the photos, but next time I’m going to get some more exciting film and hopefully do some cross processing so they are more like the photos in my inital Lomo post 🙂
