These are a few of my favourite things....

I just wanted to show you a few things that are making me say "be still my beating heart"...

First one of my faves the wonderful Orla Kiely, with some of her latest designs.

And although I'm not a girly girl, the Oscars had a few beauties... Helena Bonham Carter (always my lady crush) wore a black corset dress by costume designer Colleen Atwood, who went on to win Best Costume Design for Alice in Wonderland; telling reporters, "[I] thought it would be nice to celebrate film rather than fashion"

Helen Mirren flew the British flag by wearing Vivienne Westwood

As did Anne Hathaway

 I downloaded a fabby free e book from the fabby people over at  which has some cool techniques for Art Journallers.

The Ranger blog

Has featured my frame from the Designer Challenge, and my demo video from CHA2010, and I am bowled over by the lovely comments people have left. Thankyou. xx

Over at Elsies blog she has been showcasing the new dresses available on her website. Each dress has been photographed with three different looks and this one is just soooooooo me. I would definitely wear this with the baggy cardi, and I have spent months trying to track down some vintage Dr Martens in leopard. Mind you I think the headband is over the top even for me, lol.

Love this picture of my old pal Jane as she discovers her article in the latest issue of Somerset Studio Digital

When I lose all my unwanted weight I just might treat myself to this beauty from Vivienne of Holloway

From Schuh these Irregular Choice shoes really float my boat, loving the bow at the back.

This quote

"Because you're fat and hes thin and you're both f**king ugly".......

Oh yes The Full Monty is on TV, so I am making an exception and watching it again even though I know it word for word....

And I will leave you with this You tube clip which quite frankly is frikkin hilarious. He's my kind of babe....

Enjoy xx
