In the Hiddenness of June

July 29, 2016 § Leave a comment

The rain fell in shivering cords
Ropes of sky plummeting straight down
The way only summer rain really does

The air felt close, protective
Like the jungle warmth was on our side
June’s hiddenness draped a damp arm around us and wept

I Waited 25 Years For You

These are the cowboy boots of my life. All the years of scouring eBay, close but not quite.

They are by Sendra – £200 worth of Spanish leather. For £16. I could WEEP.

If you’re not into cowboy boots, you don’t know how hard it is to find a pair that look good. Like, ACTUALLY look good. So many variables: how tall they are, the shape of the toe, the height of the heel, the tightness of the leg. Very hard to find a flattering shape.

And these are them. I’ve been searching so long, and here they are. An auction I thought I’d lost! Only to find them nestled in my basket, waiting for Mama to pay her bill.

Oh BOYS, welcome home.

All The Colours

Colourful bow ties

Know what I love? Bows. Bows and colours. All the bows and all the colours please. To that end, I just bought a lot of brightly coloured bows. I wear these as bow ties and on my Ju Ju Jellies, so excellent investment I feel.

Also just won my second pair of Irregular Choice shoes this week…oopsie. However, £19 for £70 shoes is a bargain in anyone’s book.

You Legend Irregular Choice

I pitched quite a lot of work last week and some of it has already been completed, signed off and paid for which is a lovely miracle! I absolutely adore being able to make money doing something that comes naturally to me and that I enjoy. Yeah I know, vomit.

But don’t just stand there and throw stones at me. Go chase YOUR dream, yo!

Cat Hat

July 22, 2013 § 1 Comment

Loving my pink cat hat from Oasap – it’s so kitschy I may die of happiness. Also got some gold rings – triangle, circle and square  – which I adore but (typically) rub green off on my fingers. Have overcome this by painting them with clear nail varnish. Such a girl scout.

I got a collar as well: blue leopard print with spike studs. Yes. Yes it is good. Will post that when I can.

So busy right now kids, lots of roller coaster activity going on. Job, freelance, life in general – it’s just all mental.

Well guess what? My article about Royal Albartross on HOWL has led rather pleasantly to writing a few news stories here and there for the company.

If you didn’t see that piece, Royal Albartross make the most beautiful golf shoes in the world. Now, I’m not golfer. But these shoes are to die for whether you’re a sporty type or not.

Check out my latest piece for The Golf Wire, an American online publication.

Victorian Cyber Vampire

Just informed my boss that I have today come to work as a Victorian Cyber Vampire, then got up to show him my shoes as if to illustrate that point for him more clearly. He didn’t disagree.
