... When I was last in London, I went back to Stoke Newington where I had lived for a few years... I must admit it had changed a lot, I hardly recognised the area... Everything seemed so clean and new and kind of odd for me I guess... At least the cemetery hadn't changed a bit, still so beautiful and magical... And a few metres down from the cemetery, I came across the most amazing children's boutique called " Olive loves Alfie"... They now have the most incredible website where you can see all the wonderful things they sell. Above are a few of my favourite finds like the cutest felt shoes and the coolest knitted star dresses... If you happen to stroll down Stokey, their shop is definitely worth a visit and if like me you are miles away their website is just a click away:http://www.olivelovesalfie.co.uk

... It's all wintery here in Cape Town... All I feel like doing is hibernate with a good cup of tea and some fantastic magazines... I wanted to share with you this beautiful editorial shot for an amazing Australian magazine called " Papier Mache"... A friend of mine send it to me the other day and I can't stop looking at it... I especially love this ballerina story: the styling, the location, the soft light... It is all incredible and very inspiring...

... Let it be known that I am a cat person so I completely melted over these cool cats... Severina Kids has created a beautifully crafted collection of toys and objects from its Madrid’s based workshop. Each piece is hand-made in limited batches by local artisans.... Severina Kids was conceived by Argentinean-Italian designer Alejandra Salvatore. Alejandra grew up in a textile design environment. Her mother and grandmother were passionate craftswomen and from her early childhood she was surrounded by creative people designing, knitting, sewing and embroidering fabrics. Although it was her cats that stole my heart, you should really check the other amazing things that she has in her store ...

... This editorial was shot by Swedish photographer Sandra Freij... The concept for this shoot is really cool, each picture represent a persona: from chatterbox Emilia, daydreamer Stanley to party princess Emilia... I get so inspired by stories like these, I love it when photographers and magazines run wild with their imagination the same way children do!
