My darling friends Chelsey and Alison have started a little company named FEAT. sock co. Everybody wears socks, but you can love the socks you wear too! Just look how sweet they are, it's like a treat for your feet. It's always nice to see people you really like and admire doing things this marvelous. Take a look at their website and get some for yourself; while you're at it, get some for your brother and for your mother.
I've just moved into my own place, which means I now get to come home, climb into bed and watch tv. I leave the dishes until I have no more and I get dressed all over my home, leaving a trail of clothing as I go. Along with all these bad habits, I am having the best time making my spot snazzy. I have yet to go to woolies and come home without more glasses/wooden spoons. I have fresh flowers in the kitchen, I cook roasts in my oven and I started a windowsill herb garden. Seriously, how great is it having a space to make your own? I just want friends to come over for vino and cheeses! (I have noise sensitive neighbours who may not share my sentiment though) I've been poring over Louisa Brimble's life of late. She documents her everyday travels for you and me to enjoy and get jealous over. This series of photographs above makes me want to have lots of bowls and a wooden table and friends who wear jumpers when they come over and help me pick fresh produce for my no fuss garden. Now is that too much to ask for?
Please do yourself a favour and watch W.E. at the cinema; watch it soon! The movie has everything you would want from a great film, it makes you sad you live in 2012 and not 1930-something, it makes you realize how strong love can be when you find the real thing, how your wardrobe is too small and your jewellery box needs more jewels and how utterly refreshing it is to sit for a couple of hours, over indulging yourself in a visual feast. And don't even get me started on that terrific patterned suit!
