Notting Hill

I recently explored the colourful streets of  Notting Hill. It’s so pretty and Portobello Road Market is well worth a visit.

Blythe Fashion Shoot

Because I am really grown-up, I decided it was about time my Blythe doll took part in a photo shoot. Also because she has some beautiful clothes, some of which were made by my friend Emma-Louise (the cute nautical jacket and beautiful transport print dress). This particular doll’s name is Miss Sally Rice (according to the … Continue reading

All Tomorrow’s Parties

Finally getting round to sharing my pictures from All Tomorrow’s Parties curated by Deerhunter. Highlights included The Breeders, Tom Tom Club, Black Lips, Verity Susman and Dan Deacon.

Recent things

The sea etc.

Haven’t posted in a while due to lack of wifi but planning to catch up soon. Falling back in love with Brighton. Here are some pictures of the beach from this summer.          

Recovered Photos: Taiwan, Week 1

All the photos from back then are blurry, as if to prove it must have been a dream. My camera broke for a bit, maybe a reaction to the sudden heat or the humidity as it worked fine again later. I just found the photos and it all came back to me, the dreamlike first … Continue reading
