My half term has been quiet so far and I am currently in Cornwall. Robin Kegel has been staying in our 'cottage' here recently. He shapes surf boards and is travelling the world. He is originally from Cali, which obvs means he has that 'laid back' approach that is really nice. This is a link to his website: http://www.gatoheroi.com/ and here are photos of him (from google):
My days are spent watching bad telly and... wait for it... knitting! Yes, I am a 14 year old granny. Another hobbie I have recently discovered is painting pottery. There is a little place next door to our Cornwall house where I have painted 3, yes 3, different items. I have a natural talent for it, I'm tellin' ya. OH YEAH, forgot to mention... I GOT AN IPHONE! I am pretty bad at using it, and I may have dropped it in paint at the pottery place, but it's so fun to mess around with. Changing settings, and what not.
I'm lovin' it lovin' it lovin' it.
I'm having the time of my life.
I don't want this post to have nothing to do with fashion or art or something creative, so I will show you some bits and bobs that I am liking at this moment in time.

These bad boys:
Did I mention I spent a few years of my childhood with the biggest Hello Kitty obsession EVER? Well, thank the lord I didn't see these during those years.
OH YAH, remember that 'Rankin Live' shoot that me and the fam went to last summer? Well, they made a book with some of their favourite photographs, a book for the men and a book for the women, and yours truly was chosen! The book arrived in the post and my Mother showed me (kept is as a surprise for me) and it is rad! Thanks, Rank...(in)!
Here is me on the Rankin website (woop):
Trends. To be honest, I dislike the term 'trends'. People have their own style so I don't see why they should feel like they have to follow a certain ' look'. Yes, I know that a lot of people out there feel more comfortable when they are 'in' with the rest of the crowd, but I feel differently. Each day I can not commit myself to a 'trend'. What is the fun of that?! If I want to dress like a granny that day, I will. If I am feeling a grunge day then I will go with that. It can be argued that those are trends in themselves, but I like to switch it up with my emotions or atmosphere of where ever I am. Despite the fact that I am not a fan of 'trends' here are some that I am a fan of, from Vogue:
Trust me, it's not as bad as it sounds. It includes quite a lot of Miu Miu, so I'm down with that.
Not quite, but rather fetching.
Both Miu Miu A/W 2010-11
Well, that is no news there. Anything Miu Miu usually has me giddy.
Ooh, these are perty...
SOZ. Magpie moment. Yummy sparkles.
I will stop myself before the whole A/W collection is on here.
Another trend I am fond of, sorry animal lovers:
Yes, I like animals, but you can't wear it if it's alive now, can you?
Sorry, Cruella DeVil moment.
May I just mention, I love John Galliano.
My last trend for today -
Those are all the 'trends' I can handle for today.
Some things I am looking forward to:
- Misfits is coming back on telly some time in November! SHWEET!
- HALLOWEEN! I actually have not got a plan this year, so don't be surprised if I end up watching a scary film at home. Alone. Preferably in the dark. Then regretting it for a week, just like I did with 'The Ring'. I watched it with my friend, in her attic, at midnight. In the dark.
I slept with the light on for two weeks. True story!
Here is a lil summin summin for y'all -
MILO PHONE HOME.
