Style Paparazzi Twenty

wow... not done of these in a while so before my street style inspiration folder gets any fuller I thought it would be not rude not to share them with you guys. [Admit it you've missed them] 
This girlie caught my eye straight away with her cute red beret, I love the way it adds a little pop of colour. Not to mention the awesome clash of the tartan coat and floral dress. I might dig out my summer florals this week to cheer me up, worn with some thick tights mind... it's arctic out there after all!

What's inspiring you this week?

Time For Tea

I'm a huge typography geek... give me some printed words and I shall be happy. So of course I was smitten with this particular piece work from Nikki Williams - she actually printed it with real tea!

and not content with just tea (because everyone knows a cuppa goes hand in hand with a biscuit) she's also created these biscuit inspired cushions. Perfect!

I recently came across the work of Dominique Franks and I fell in love. I love that they all have that vintage feel and the muted colours convey a sort of dreamscape. I can't wait for summer!

Perfect Pitta Bread Pizzas

So I have a confession... I'm pretty much hopeless when it comes to the kitchen. I've tried to perfect my culinary skills a few times but to be truly honest - I'm just far too lazy. So when I came across the recipe for a pitta bread pizza [which as my friends can vouch for... is probably my favourite food] I was pleasantly surprised. Not only was it easy peasy, I had all the ingredients [all four of them] stocked in the cupboards already. 

Just mix some chopped tomatoes with some Italian herbs and spoon onto some pitta breads. Then add some mozzarella and pop in the oven. Voila. Perfect pizzas!

one armed scissor

My ultimate spring wardrobe. Oh Madewell you big tease. I might not be able to leave the house without my fur collared coat and toasty scarf just yet, but I can't stop thinking about their delicious new collection.

We found love...

I'm a huge fan of the original version of this song, but i'm also a massive sucker for some acoustic sounds so I instantly fell in love with Jayme Dee's cover of Rihanna's 'We Found Love'. There's just something about her soulful voice and tinkly guitar that adds another dimension to the song. God,  I wish I had a musical bone in my body.

Check out her youtube channel for some other beutiful covers... including my favourite Maroon 5 song!

Pipe dream

Living in a rented flat, there's not a lot we're allowed to do to make walls our own. However, as soon I've got my own little place I plan to get a few of these shelves to put up on the walls. This isn't my usual taste, my style leans more towards more feminine shabby chic, but I'm loving the industrial feel against the plain wall.

A new year... a new start

I can't believe how quick this last year has gone... and how little I blogged!  Looking back I actually achieved a lot more than I thought I had - I said goodbye to one chapter of my life and said hello to another. I finally moved out London and with one of my best friends, all topped off with finally getting my dream job... phew! 

I have made a new year's resolution to be more productive this year. I'm going to try and blog a little more and definitely be more creative! 

What resolutions have you made?
