Akin to the invention of logarithms

Apparently, John Napier and Joost Burgi's independent inventions of logarithms have saved mathematicians half their lives in calculations. (Thanks maths tutor and storyteller).

I only checked around 6 or 7 blogs before I signed up to bloglovin'. And that was using the bookmarks on firefox ... I've lost count of how many I follow now ... ah back in the stone age blog-wise.
Go ahead, please follow my blog with bloglovin´.

Vincent Fournier Pt II

More Vincent Fournier. The first is recognisably taken in Cape Town, South Africa. Weirdly it captures my feelings of the centre of the city perfectly. The sky in the third picture is confusing.

Vincent Fournier Pt I

It sounds so strange but today I woke up with this guys name in my head, so I googled it. I must have heard it somewhere.

His work is very still and painterly but very real, and wonderfully humorous.

Ghost of Christmas past .... takes photos!

A collection of photos from over the "holiday period". The worst period ever.


He he he

Chictopia Q&A

Sluuummber Paaarty with the boys!

I am originally from south africa.
Only my nuclear family lives in england.
There have been NO parties or get-togethers.
I have been indoors since christmas eve.

I haven't been able to wear any of my christmas presents.

So instead I've been looking at fashion vlogs, washing my face about four times a day and revisiting my once idolised viceland.com

Gifts on the eve of the eve

My friends are excellent.

Additional pressies were toblerone, chewy lolipop and christmas ale ... but my teeth are a bit too sore for that.

Various photos in my bedroom


These are my shiny new teeth accessories which hurt like fck. I am too old for braces.

Vanessa Bruno

On my recent brief trip to Selfridges Vanessa Bruno was one of the only collections that really tugged the heart strings in person. That and the YSL shoes. MY god, those things are powerful.

The website is quite lovely, featuring photography by Mark Borthwick, so I'll show you that. Use the style.com search tool to the right to find the collection because I can't do it justice here.

Yes, you've seen this before haven't you ...


The lace at the bottom of the dress makes it look like its slowly falling and blending into the legs below. Like shading in a sketch.

She & Him (but mostly She)

She's been in some GOOD films (look at Elf, The Happening and possibly Failure to Launch purely for her fringe)
AND she sings - http://www.myspace.com/sheandhim - Is there anything she CAN'T do!
