Now you can all live the ginger dream....

I saw this on Etsy. Yep, it's a ginger-with-plaits-mirror.

Now you can be ginger too.


Although look at the nice lady. I'm sure she is perfectly lovely and pretty, but she got all weird with the ginger mirror wig.

Use your new power wisely.

Best Ginger Ever.

Just evening things up a bit around here, you know, redressing the balance and all. I kind of have to after yesterday's post

Look at this chap. Everyone hearts Conan.

A post in which I stand up for gingers and stepchildren and shame Rango and the rest of you.

So we just watched Rango and I thought it was great - funny, quirky and a little bit different than your regular animated film. Yeah, yeah, whatever. For the first time in my life I heard the phrase 'beaten like a red-headed stepchild'. Um, hello? Like, I have red hair, plus I'm a stepchild.

Check out Urban Dictionary for a hilarious range of definitions - basically, you beat your step kids first because you like them less and you beat the gingers before the rest. So that red-headed stepchild is top of the beating-list. Lucky me.

Tsk. Bad Rango, shame on you. And the rest of you, sniggering at the back there.

My heart belongs to: Bonkers Norway.

Yep, round these parts you can sail right up to a sticking out rocky bit and hammer a spike in and just tether your boat like a puppy. 

For all I know this may be normal in lots of countries.

A Sunday-something-to-lust-after: well, kind of..

I was just taking a little peek at the Tiffany website, I do rather like a lovely emerald.

And I saw this.

Full info and proper picture here.

This £97,000 jewelled clip was commissioned by a client who 'was stung by the real version of this sea creature'.

Today's lust isn't for the piece of jewellery, it isn't my favourite, it is for the ability to commission jewellery based on accidents. 

Kind of brilliant.

Saturday snapshot: in which I attempt a photo bomb from the front.

Here is a photo of the big, huge cathedral in Berlin..

And here is another one..

I am awfully pleased with myself.

Oh dear.

Oh my, this makes me laugh...

Possibly a bit more than it ought to... It's kind of a lame pun, but oh-so-funny.


Happy Friday.

Summer is my friend.

Yes, I know, another summer post, but the sun is too delicious for words and it makes me awfully happy, so there you go.

Look outside, it is jolly bright. So that's where these come in...

Prada sunglasses.

Awesome. They look fabby and I bet they are even fabbier to wear.

Although these might be more fun...

Miu Miu sunglasses.

I love the bottom ones, but oh-so 80s and just a little bit Timmy Mallett.

(None of this is a hint in any way to my lovely husband who is doing a four-city two-day European tour right now, meaning a lot of time in airports. Near the duty free).

Summer lounging.

It is Day 381 in the moving house and we aren't finished yet. We are totally getting there, just not yet. This week is all warm and lovely, so what we need to do is drop everything and get outside and start lounging. With a big drink. 

(These lovely things are all from Pottery Barn. Does anyone else hear Pottery Barn and immediately think of Friends and the apothecary table? Oh, the 90s...)

Some super cute jewellery for summer.

Summer is definitely coming. You can tell because it is getting warmer and pineapple earrings are on sale at Top Shop.

I think its the same as seeing your first swallow. Or something definitely like that.

Top Shop always have good jewellery, and I do rather like these:

 And these:

Some delights from Asos:

And bringing out the big guns, some pieces from Matches:

I do especially love the bonkers coral cuff. Yeay for Lanvin and the Lanvin-size-price-tag. 

All lovely, all reeking of summer. Can't wait.

Sorry, The Cure, but look what these clever etsy people have done.

Hurray for the 17th May!

Today is Norway's National Day. Yeay. It celebrates the 1814 signing of the constitution that declared Norway to be an independent nation. (Should you wish to learn more, and I am sure you do, please do go to this informative Wikipedia article).

Anyway, it is a big day here - so hurrah for parades, sausages and national dress.

Yep, EVERYONE dresses up. 

This is my littlest stepson from a couple of years ago - all the schools meet up and walk with their classes. (Oh and let's not tell him I'm using this picture...).

Oh, and they let their gingers dress up and have a flag.

Yeay Norway!
