I have come across another jewellery collection that I have fallen in love with - Spell. These are a few photos from their amazing website and I love them!

Spell is a company run by two sisters Elizabeth and Isabella in Australia. The sisters have created their line using the combination of feathers, leather and turquoise which the spent their childhood growing up with. 

I would love a collection just like the one in the first and last photos!

Happy Easter Everyone

I hope everyone is enjoying the four day break and consumed their own body weight in Easter eggs? I have a small (large) confession to make:

I have eaten at least one (of the above) Creme eggs every day for the passed two months!!! There I said it, it is out in the open. I really hope they take them out of the shops soon as I don't think my 'want to be' Summer body is loving me for my new addiction....

Guy Aroch is a professional photographer who specialises in beauty, fashion and celebrity portraits. 

His photography has been seen on covers and features of newspapers and international magazines, such as Vogue UK, Men's Vogue, Italian Glamour, Italian GQ, Interview, Nylon and Wonderland.

I first noticed his work when he took the cover image of the Arctic Monkeys third album, Humbug. Since then I have noticed his work more and more and I really like his style of photography, the use of a soft lens has a very romantic feel to the images.

I really hope you stay...

I can not express how excited I am about the long weekend!!! 

Even more so that I have been one of those cheeky people who have booked the three days off next week, which means a total of 11 DAYS OFF WORK! Can I get woop woop!

So the sun is shining, I am really hoping it stays and only one day left of work. I hope you are all enjoying or going to be enjoying this great British weather?

Make a note of your memories

As previously mentioned I love making a list, also love a good note book, but I have never been very good at keeping a diary. I find it hard sitting down and writing a page about my day and then if I forget to complete a day and then give up.

When I have been able to keep up with keeping a diary it then gets put in a draw never to be looked at again. While 'window shopping' on Amazon I came across a book called 'One Line a Day' and I couldn't resist! It is a book that has space for five years worth of memories, and the best thing about it, there is only enough room to write down the most memorable moment of your day.

I have bought one and started at the start of April and so far so good. I hope I am able to keep it up for five years as I think it is such a great idea.

I am head over heels in love with this song. The words are moving and the raw sound of the piano is so beautiful.

This will be me tomorrow evening...

I haven't been to a Yoga class in years and have made the decision to start back up. I think it is more down to the fact that my flexibility is rubbish! 

I am hoping that a 90 minute class once a week until the end of time, will help me achieve my goal of touching my toes and tone up my belly for bikini season. So fingers crossed and wish me luck.... I have a feeling I'm going to need it.

Live by these rules and smile

I came across the above picture, it rings so true with the basic rules that I grew up with. It brought a smile to my face. How life gets so much more complicated as we get older.

After the amazing image that I fell in love with in this post. I thought I would show some more of the images that will be shown in the Alexander McQueen: 'Savage Beauty' exhibition in New York. 

So much talent from one designer, such a shame he left us all so young. 

Do you have a favourite Alexander McQueen design?

Savage Beauty

This image made me sit up and pause. I find it so beautiful thought provoking, even though this is a still image there is so much movement and life. 

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York are holding an exhibition of the work of Alexander McQueen, who sadly passed last year, from the 4 May to 31 July 2011.  The exhibition will feature more than 100 pieces of Alexander McQueen's work.

For others who like me won't be in New York a book will be released but of course this won't be the same. I so wish this was being shown in London.

Sometimes, all you need is a quote...

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when their right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." 

- Marilyn Monroe
