Lovely Things February 2016

Frannerd

Right! We’ll I’m going to start with a recent YouTube find : Fran Meneses, a.k.a Frannerd. I can’t recall how I came across her, but I’m so glad I did. Fran is an Illustrator from Chile who now lives with her Husband and cats in London and creates fun and beautiful illustrations and really great videos! I guess I particularly like her videos because she gives a lot of insight into the life of an illustrator and I have lots of ‘Ahhhhh, that’s how you do it!’ moments, but her films are fun to watch even if you dabble in art , or just want something good to watch (Her ‘Fredcember’ videos are super funny!). Fran has a blog , Etsy Shop and Instagram, so there are lots of ways to follow her, here’s one of her ‘Let’s Draw’ videos…


Cath Kidston

Spring is so nearly upon us and all the shops are coming out with their Spring ranges to tempt us. One shop that will never fail to tempt me in is Cath Kidston, here are a few pieces from the Spring 2016 ranges that caught me eye…

Fixer Upper

Okay, if you love interior design, looking in other peoples houses and a bit of comedy too, Fixer Upper is for you! My sister and I became pretty obsessed with it last year when they showed the first season on Food Network (of all places!), they have now transferred to ITVBe in the UK, I think they are on HGTV in the US and I’m sure they are on all round the world. Now, the premise is a Husband and Wife, Builder and Interior Designer respectively, renovate a ‘Fixer Upper’ for a family, but somehow it is so much more than that, I’m not sure how to explain my love of it really, it’s just sooo good!!…


Hill & Friends

Now I’ve got a new Handbag brand for you now, it is called Hill & Friends and was set up by Emma Hill (the Woman that made Mulberry cool!) and her friend Georgia Fendley. If you know the Mulberry look you can imagine that this brand has an eye for detail and Quality, but with a heavy dose of fun and frivolity, the perfect mix! Here are a few of the pieces I liked the look of…

The Vamoose

I’ve spoken of The Vamoose before, but her latest pieces are also ones I would gladly wear, they are very earthy, but also elegant and ageless I think. Here are a few of my favorites…

Fairytale

Last but not least we have a little music. This time a new song from Lianne La Havas which was included on her new album edition ‘Blood Solo’. The track – ‘Fairytale’ is dedicated to her cousin and her cousin’s daughter and is a sweet sounding lullaby of a song…

 

So there we go, another ‘Lovely Things’ collection. I hope there is something there that is new and interesting to you! I’ll be back soon with the Milan Fashion Week favorites, see you soon!
