Nothing says spring to me like editorials featuring gal pals it conjures up road trips and days out with a care free attitude. J'aime! Here are two such images from W and Vogue China. In other girl on girl news I have joined the London Feminist Bookgroup and am awaiting the arrival of my first text in the post-so interested to see the turn out and hear the perspectives of the other members and how to marry the concepts of third wave feminism with the positivity that I want to bring to my life along with independence and confidence.
I am quite into the way that fashion has been appropriating extreme sports giving high fashion girlie editorials a touch of skater cool its possible to like dresses and trucks. Boom its officially cool to not want to look glossy.

This weekend i went with my sister for a business meeting in Madrid for one day. 3 am starts were made better by McDonalds breakfasts, a warm day on the continent and the fact that the meeting went well. Spending time with her is always a good thing.Here are a couple of shots from m y trip-tea and croissants at The Inter Continental-yum yum with decadent surroundings,Deco buildings in town and beautiful night time plaza walks.
Reggae and ska is sure to make a sunny day shine brighter. I love these tune by the pioneers and tommy mccook and i love these images that i saw on carnaby street billboards this week, makes me want to wear nothing but fred perry's and mini skirts and get my hair cut into a bob. This music is something me and my dad share together and hunting for old trojan vinyl in deepest surrey is something that always cheers me, it is no wonder that these old tunes constantly influence the modern bands and designers that i like.
Positivity be ours

I wrote some new articles which are up on famode.com about spring summer hair and make up. It is a model networking type site but its always good to do a bit of freelance and keep a bit busy. Plus there is nothing more cheery then spring colours and dip dyed hair!

Yesterday I had not 1 but 2 interviews so fingers crossed. In between the two meetings I went to Selfridges and looked at the sweeties and the colourful pencils yay.
I also had pink grapefruit ice cream which was in fact delicious!
