| STYLE NOTES | EGG
If there is one brand that I have not ceased fawning over since I discovered it in 2012 (I remember it clearly. It was like a bolt of lightening), it is Egg. Egg has a loyal following and remains deeply influential to many a fashion designer.  For me, Egg s...

| Thoughts | Grow Slow
Our boy turned 1 last week! He was not as conscious of this milestone as we were, though I suspect that he intuitively understood more than we think. He's at that age when all sorts of big changes are imminent. Walking being the main one.  Perhaps it is the...

| Abandoned | Passengers
Some years ago, we blogged about our encounter with some stubborn passengers in a disused garage.  In my rush to get in and out of the place mixed with my eagerness to take it all in, I'd unwittingly used a gritty filter in Hipstagram and so the photos that...

| Beauty | Made of Margate
I am so chuffed that we got to stop by Haeckels when we were in Margate. If you are in the area, I highly recommend a visit. It smells wonderful. It is gorgeously laid out as a part boutique, part lab space with elements of old world industrial vibes thrown...

| Night Ligths | Sham Shui Po
I did a bit of research on how I could spend my one day off in Hong Kong. I was looking for a place that had soul. A place that I could get away from the glossy towers in the filthy rich financial centre and the forgettable shopping malls so I headed for Sh...

| NATURE ARTFORMS | Aqueous Daydream
“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, "This is what it is to be happy.” ― Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar I am always looking to nature for inspiration for colour, texture and mood combination. In my heart ...

| BEAUTY | BOTTLED ROSE
My toner situation is divided into 2 clear categories.  Iiiiiiiiiiin the red corner we have those punchy decongesting hard working exfoliaters.  Iiiiiiiiiiiiim the blue corner, we have the silky smoothing,  skin prep-soothers. In the latter group, Santa Mar...

| Magic Mundane | Dirty Pastels
What is it about pastels thats caught my attention lately. By the looks of my camera roll, I am more than just a little obsessed. But, these are not the pretty pristine macaron box pastels, these are slightly fallen from grace, lived in, lived out, sun-blea...

| EXPLORE | BRIGHTON SKY/SEA/STREETSCAPE
Everyone likes Brighton don't they? I haven't   met a single person who says that they don't. It's certainly a jewel in the British seaside  resort crown. While I can't declare my love for pebble beaches (I still can't get my head around them), I do enjoy e...

| Abandoned | Lonely Lido
We're turning the pages of our hefty story book back to Margate. Here is a tale of an abandoned lonely Lido whose dowdy appearance hides a fascinating story. The Lido was built between 1824-1828 and it is the earliest surviving seawater bathing establishmen...

| Kids Stuff | Oh Pants!
I'm so glad I grabbed these little comfy trousers for the kid. I spotted them on special offer earlier in the year. They are bright and vivacious and so they should be, they are after all, inspired by Matisse! And they always get a compliment or two from ha...
