Miu Miu Meow

Miu Miu Meow

I’ve always been a big fan of Miu Miu’s playfully glamorous aesthetic and fun pushing of fashion boundaries, and the new SS14 collection is hands down one of my favourites ever. Not least because I got a kitten just a few weeks before the SS14 show and called her Miu…

A Fresh Look At Dried Flowers

A Fresh Look At Dried Flowers

Dried flowers have a certain stigma that probably manifested itself in the musty potpourri bowls of houseproud homemakers in the 80s and 90s. But if you ask me, a dying bloom is not deserving of this reputation. Air drying is the traditional way of drying flowers, the petals will shrink…
