I remember picking up a McCartney record in Oxfam on my birthday a couple of years ago and I've regretted not buying it ever since purely because the album art inside was so nice with personal family photos, presumably many taken by Linda decorating the inside of the sleeve. In every picture...

Gimpel Fils Gallery September 2011 Nowness: Shots of a young Kate Moss, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and travels through Borneo commemorate the poignant life and work of late photographer Corinne Day, being honored in a retrospective at Gimpel Fils gallery in September and an accompanying...

Since coming across this photograph on a postcard in the Arnolfini bookshop the other day I haven't been able to stop looking at it. The sight of an exhausted, fully grown Elephant collapsed in the middle of a small country road in Cowlitz County, Washington is incredible. At first I...

I'm really looking forward to taking a couple of days to chill out in the glorious sunshine and finally read something for pleasure rather than for university (I'm finally going to start Teenage: The Creation of Youth by Jon Savage -which I posted about a while ago in relation to it's...

This Sunday is Mother's Day in the UK. As I'm not on home soil I've popped my own Mahsy a card in the post but here are some of the goodies I'd buy her if money were no object and if Texan bars were still in production. All in all they're the perfect ingredients for a Sunday. A soothing Eve...

Outfit wise: Margaret Howell caridigan (I dread the day my Mum asks for this back..) with second hand crochet hemmed shorts, new balance 420, 17 lipstick in 'hot chilli', and a small plait in an attempt to counteract the dreaded process of growing out a fringe.
