Tim Walker's photography is breathtakingly magical & matches our party moods beautifully. (Images from from Love. Obsess. Inspire an amazing blog filled with beautiful imagery)

Christmas Cards Boutique NOW OPEN - 20% off

Our eagerly anticipated Christmas Card Boutique is now open selling the most gorgeous hand made Christmas Cards available to personalise with a special message.

It was this time last year that we designed our first range of Christmas cards and added them to the site. A little bit of an after thought really, as at that point, we didn't do personalised cards.
We only had 3 ranges last year and despite no marketing / no advertising, they where a huge success. So much so that we started work immediately on an all new section of the website 'the greetings card range', which has been growing ever since.

Take a peek at the New Christmas Card Boutique & we would love to know what you think?
Even better, quote 'XmasTreat' to get 20% off Christmas Cards until November 1st 09. (Discount may be used on any greetings card orders - not just Xmas cards)

Fallen Princesses

Everyone's got a story. The ‘Fallen Princess’ Collection by Dina Goldstein made a real impact on me when I first saw it.

I have a Psychology degree and have been fascinated by people, the things they do & the reasons behind it.. I love to people watch and work out where the boundaries are between the fa├žade & reality. I’ve got a knack of working people out.

When people get to know me, their usual reaction is ‘your not how I thought you’d be like’, those who really get to know me say they are inspired. But those who don’t really know me think I have lead the perfect & most happy life. I haven’t. It’s had some tough times. But I’m a very balanced, happy and successful person from it.

Here are a selection of my favourites. The title ‘Not so little red riding hood’ made me giggle.

Happy Weekend

My boyfriend Si has his first set DJing at Sankeys in Manchester this weekend. Sankeys was voted 15th Best Club in the world this year & 5th best club amongst Clubbers magazine so it's quite a honour for him.

It’s not my usual cup of tea but I’ll be there supporting him doing my interpretation of ‘good’ dancing, along with my best friend Sara who has come up with her fella, Dan, all the way from our Nations Capital along with about 30 other friends. Should be a very good night.

I'm so proud of him.
Happy Weekend xx

Great Design

This made me smile. It also made me really want to drink a glass of water. So classicly Paul Smith, this 'Paul Smith for Evian' bottle adds a fantastic injection of style & colour into an everyday object.

Love it!
