Oh dear, oh no. Once again I’ve stumbled upon a website that I need to buy the entirety of! Retro Planet. It’s basically a collection of all my favourite things winking and grinning at me screaming “buy me you need me in your house.” There have loads of tin signs of Chevvy’s and hello and entire category of retro coca-cola products (massive sucker) old school americana, oh goodness. If you have a spare few minutes make sure you check this website out if, like me you’re also a massive retro lover. It also makes me want to time travel…which isn’t quite as possible as making an incy wincy purchase 🙂
Who doesn’t have a need for those red plastic diner baskets? Exactly!! Now I know this isn’t a Christmassy post but I became obsessed within 2 minutes and thought it worthy of a mention here.
These shoes, are without a doubt the best Christmas shoes you’re likely to see. Yes, realistically our Christmas shoes are more likely to be sparkly than pudding themed, but they really are great. Of course such a creation comes from the wonderful Charlotte Olympia who also brought out my favourite cat loafers; I love how fun her designs are they never fail to make me smile, just like the little beauties below did. I’m not a massive fan of Christmas Pudding so may be investing in these would be my way of showing willing?!
Now that I’m fully into work mode, I’m realising the importance of a good bag to carry back and forth all the essentials but still look chic. So my love for satchels has been re-awoken. They’re hassle free, which at 8.30 in the morning is all l I can cope with! They also require no hands, or bent arm to carry so I can stuff my gloved hands in my pockets. When thinking of satchels I immediately think of the cambridge satchel company, my favourite is the mustard yellow one, it needs to be in my life. Others i’ve spotted on my cyber travels (damn you selfridges emails) are these chloe and barbour ones (pretty sure latter is a man’s, but who cares).They’re the perfect size for carrying my lunch, ipad, money and other essentials in but not so big and bulky that I look hobbit sized.
Which is your favourite?
I have to thank my wonderful friend for showing me this video when she came to visit this weekend, I’ve now watched it at least 5 times in the past few days and it hasn’t grown old. I can’t think of a greater collaboration than Disney and Barney’s. Now Barney’s holds some sort of nostalgia in my heart because when I was growing up that’s where Rachel from Friends worked in New York and New York was my dream and of course I can’t think of any part of my childhood or in fact my life now without harking back to some sort of Disney film. I found myself quoting something I didn’t even remember was Disney! It’s ingrained.
This video is so great, Elber Albaz is my favourite, he was made to be a Disney character right?! And Minnie as always is just adorable, who didn’t want to dress up at Minnie when they were younger? So I’m sharing this wonderful video with you to enjoy, amazing job Barney’s and Disney for creating this magical fashion short. I am a bit late on the uptake with this (sorry) but now the puzzle of why SJP was on the red carpet with Mickey ears on has been solved! Of course with any collaboration there is a collection to buy and my eye is on the cookie jar.
Ok, so this is more than a LittleLike, this is a right out, full on LOVE.
It’s the CTFxC.
If you haven’t heard of it (tsk tsk – they’re the 3rd most subscribed to channel) they are a daily vlog channel following the lives of Charles and Alli Trippy as well as their dogs Zoe and Marley. I started watching about a year ago but they’ve been vlogging every day of their lives since 1st May 2009! The vlogs have followed them through a proposal, warped tour, house moving, the wedding and so much more. The show has that special something that makes it so addictive. I love finding out what they got up to each day and makes me pine for living in America again and who wouldn’t want to live in Tampa where even yesterday they were still in t-shirts! Charles and Alli really are so loveable and down to earth which makes it so addictive, so if you haven’t already make sure you check them out they really are great 🙂
What youtubers are you addicted to watching?
Felicitaciones to the Royal couple William and Catherine who last night announced they were pregnant. Now yes I’m jumping on the bandwagon a bit but I just can’t resist and before I grow tired of the rumors and constant updates I’m going to enjoy it, I’m imagining channel 4 will have enough material on the story by next week to make an hour long programme on it! Below is a picture of one of my favourite dresses Kate has worn… Prabal Gurun from the first day of her Royal Tour, you can find out more info on it on the Kate Middleton Style Blog.
One can only hope that the little kid inherits Kate’s hair and not Will’s eh?!
I’ve been listening to this song so much recently. It’s hardly festive, in fact it makes me want to take a roadtrip or be driving back from the beach or lake after a long day of sunbathing and watersports, but that’s by the by. The song is awesome and it puts me in a good mood, which is something to be grateful for right? I’m planning on listening to more of their songs whilst I generally organise myself ready for the start of the new year. I think myself more than anyone starts off with such good intentions for the start of the year and then by day 2 I dwindle!
Anyway I hope this song cheers you all up out of the cold weather and short days.
