About Me

My photo
i own a little vintage shop on the south coast by the sea, or at vintagepersempre.com. im married and we have a beautiful baby girl. i like going for walks on cold sunny days and trashy reality tv. i love small boutiques, markets and big city centers. im slightly dyslexic so you'll have to ignore my poor spelling, and i rarely use capital letters. my music taste is so varied, from country to screamo, oh and musicals. i love song lyrics, pretty photographs and modern art. i have many guilty pleasures and im really not very cool. im obsessed with drawings and tattoos of birds, but im genuinely terrified of real life ones. i guess you can read on to find out more (:

brighton town.

scarlett had her first trip to brighton yesterday, took my camera with the plan to take loads of lovely photos.
as it turns out there were two protests going on, one very right wing group and the other not so much ...
basically the town was full of riot vans and people getting into fights, and it was a tiny bit frightening so my camera stayed out of sight.

so anyways heres a collection of photos from Lara stone's shoot in Brighton for one of the best vogue shoots, featured in november 2010 issue (:

'you look well nice'

following on from my last post on bird tattoos it reminded me of my insane love for kate nash & especially the song 'birds'

haven't heard it in about a zillion years and.just did a quick youtube and remember EVERY single word.

reminds me of me and my best friend karen about 5 years ago when we did super cool things like learning allll the words from her songs. 
anyways, you may not appreciate it. but its a happy song. plus she's awesome.

'right birds can fly so high,
& they can shit on your head.
yeah they can almost fly into your eye
and make you feel well scared.
but when you look at them
& you see that they're beautiful
thats how i feel about you.
right thats how i feel about you.

she said thanks i like you too
he said cool'


do birds of summer fly in circles or just fly away?

anyone that knows me will know just how much i love birds, or atleast the doodles, drawings or tattoos of them. 
i dont think i'll ever have the guts to get a bird like tattoo despite how much i love them, so instead i'll just admire them ...
