A day in the life of a #selfie.

Right, now … it’s breakfast time and I’m on a detox week, let’s kick of the day with a #healthyselfie, shall we? #blueberrybananasmoothy #healthyliscious

Hitting the gym, check out my amazing bod #workingthatbooty #abstastic - these bathroom lights are just so right for me!

This workout is making my skin glow, the world needs to see this fresh face #nomakeupselfie

I’m always on the go, check me out with ma new footwear #shoppingselfie #shoeporn #lush

Time for a snack – how do we feel about glutenfree organic dark choc? #guiltfree #yum

My puppy / kitty / rabbit are my mini-me #petlove #bestfriends #blessed

Pardy time: sushi and champers with my #besties #lovemylife #duckface

Being fabulous is so exhausting #timeforbed #nightynight

PS I need to see someone about my overuse of # - Is there such a thing as a hashtag rehab?

MADE IN AMERICANA

HOW TO MAKE THE PERFECT AMERICANA COCKTAIL 

  • Chill your desire to go shopping by adding ice to your purse and leaving to cool while you decide what to wear
  • Pick a type of heritage you want to channel: Native American, Cowboy, Country …
  • Go through your vintage finds hanging at the back of the wardrobe stirring carefully and gradually so as not to overly agitate the ingredients
  • Muddle some of your favourite pin ups: the cheerleader, Thelma & Louise, Daisy Duke …
  • Add a dash of Red, White & Blue, mixing gently with Stars & Stripes
  • Combine Checked Shirt, Baseball Cap, Varsity Jacket, Cowboy Boots; blending the parts so that one doesn’t overwhelm the other.
  • Shake vigorously
  • Strain into a Pint Size Jar half filled with diet coke
  • Garnish with suede tassels and serve

Cheers

THE OWLS ARE NOT WHAT THEY SEEM

Wait, how did this happen to me again?! How did I get sucked into the off-beat, quirky, coffee-loving, donut-eating, giant-talking, fire-walking soap opera that is Twin Peaks all over again? Is it because the 90’s are back? Is it because David Lynch looks like a wonderful mad scientist? No idea, but the obsession is certainly worst the second time around!

Taking a trip back in time I had forgotten how bonkers and lovable the characters are (is that really you? Hank Moody in drag?) and the fashion is just so … Twin Peaks. 

From the over-sized cardigans all the female characters seem to wear all the time (it never even snows but everyone is always wrapped up warm, which gets bonus points in my book) to the orange lips and strong brows. The plaid skirts (so now!), the flat shoes, the baseball jackets, the shoulder padded suits and the wood, the wood is everywhere (you can even cuddle it as your own pet, like Log Lady does). The neat geometric lines, the spooky light, the crazy camera angles and of course the mesmerizing music.

Above all, my personal style crush has to be Audrey: the brunette Marilyn, sexy yet innocent, mysterious and dreamy. 

In Twin Peaks, nothing is what it seems, not even Leo Johnsons’ hair. 

Oh Diane, I almost forgot. if you ever get up this way that cherry pie is worth a stop.

THE RETRO CHIC SCARF

The headscarf is making a comeback. Fact. And I love it, not only because it reminds me of when my mum used to make me wear it on windy days at the beach but also because there are endless iconic pictures of beautiful actresses wearing them. And so impeccably! The gorgeous, luxurious silk frames their head beautifully, not a hair out of place, their eyes gazing into the unknown. 

Of course I can’t think headscarf without thinking Jackie O: she truly made it her trademark style and wore for all kind of occasions, from official travels to holidaying in Capri. And so did BB and Audrey and the Queen!

 The headscarf is timeless yet playful, iconic yet modern, elegant yet handy (you know, for those in-between hair wash days).

 Just one question though: how do you keep the damn thing from sliding off your head every 2 minutes?! Is there a device or something? Some mysterious invisible pins? Come on you members of the secret headscarf society, unveil your trick once and for all!
