More Visual Delights From Paperchase !

Hate seeing 2013, this year is flying by so quickly ! Have a good weekend !

Music For The Weekend : Jack White : I'm Shakin !

Driving down Interstate 287, which takes you from New York State to New Jersey without having to drive over the George Washington bridge (the traffic can be horrendous from mid-afternoon onwards), I put on the radio. At first I thought this was something new by the Black Keys but as soon as I heard the voice I was puzzled and had to Youtube it when I got in. It's actually Jack White, and I'm Shakin is the perfect track for driving on any sunny afternoon !

Cool Nikes !

Paperchase in Belfast !

It's great to see how much innovative design has gone into the card range :

More in the week !

Debenhams II

Fifi the poodle (home town Paris) is no longer the girl about towns fashion accessory, this year is all about the French Bulldog ! They are on lots of must have items for the home in Debenhams right now, from cushions, to lamps to cups ! So even though this year is all about everything British, the little French bulldog is a shining star :

Are you going to take me home, or not ?
