After the aceness of last week I wasn’t sure my New York adventure could get any better…oh how wrong I was! On Monday we waved goodbye to The Lasertron’s (boohoo) and Gala & I then basically spent the whole week distracting each other. I’d love to move here one day, but if I did I fear neither of us would ever get any work done! We had too much fun doing things like this…
On Wednesday Christina, Alie and Marielle of Made U Look Photography flew all the way from California to shoot Gareth & me. We shot in our apartment, on our roof and around the East Village where we are staying. It was seriously fun. These guys are the best!
The last 3 days have been a whirlwind of excitement and adventure as Gareth & I have meandered around New York City with our friends The Darlings and The Lasertrons…wow our surname is so boring! We’ve been a right motley crue of chaos with late night pizza dates, neon pedicures, being papped in Tompkins square, flower crowns, florescent skirt purchases, passing out on sofas (yeah…that was me) and shopping til we dropped (sorry Gareth!)
Triple dates have never been so fun. Here are some of my fave instax and instagrams from the past few days…
Excuse the jet-lag eyes!
Poor Gareth is so bored of our antics (check him out skulking in the background!)
Neither Gala or I really cook but we were both in agreement that this swarovski encrusted kitchen aid in Georgetown cupcakes was the most incredible thing we’d ever laid eyes on
We had polaroids taken on the street by a man with a trilby hat with the biggest feather I’ve ever seen poking out of it!

This week Gareth & I trotted off to Muddifords Court in Devon to host a School of Rock blogging workshop. As always I was super nervous on the drive down, but once we arrived and met Becky, Nicky & Pip my mind was put at ease. They were all so utterly lovely and made us feel extremely welcome!

My four hour presentation went super quickly and, if I do say so myself, pretty swimmingly. There were so many questions which always makes me happy, and the attendees were all smiling, scribbling notes and nodding along with what I was saying which is always a good sign I reckon!

After falling head over heels for her 2011 collection, I wasn’t sure my love for Russian fashion designer Ulyana Sergeenko could grow any more. However I stand well and truly corrected as her 2012 designs have floored me.
The cuts, the shapes, the fabrics. Everything about every. single. item. makes me want it in my life! Feminine, vintage-inspired and practically perfect in every way.
My only gripe is that I can’t find any of these items to buy online and I fear even if I did they would be way out of any price range I’d consider. It’s nice to dream though!
If you’re a shoe fetishist like me then you’re about to die over what I have to show you. Did you ever think an underwater world could be resurrected into shoe-form? Well, behold – the Lost Civilizations Shoe Collection from Anastasia Radevich.
“Lost Civilizations is the title for the collection of shoes that narrates a story of the lost civilizations of the past, present and the future,” Anastasia told me. “The first 5 pieces of shoes walk the viewer through civilizations that, despite all technological advancements, were doomed to vanish. They have been submerged beneath the seas, after the sea level rose and flooded lands that have been host to the humans before.”
Well what else could I be loving this Sunday but Easter!? I don’t like chocolate at all (I know, I’m a freak) but I do love spending the day with my loved ones and taking some much needed time off work. I couldn’t leave you without some Easter inspo pretty though could I!?
Today I wanted to share something a little different, Melanie & Michael’s sweet Easter inspired shoot that was sent over by wedding photographers Jenn & Derrek of Jennifer Sullivan Photography.
If this doesn’t get you in the Easter egg munching, baby bunny petting spirit I don’t know what will.
I hope you all have a fabulous day whatever you’re up to.
