Swim with the mermaids: Enter Atlantis

Welcome to the world of Atlantis, a world of mystery, mermaids and all homeware aesthetically pleasing. 'Mermaids' is the newest promotion project of Dutch designer Marcel Wanders, art director and co founder of Moooi, the Dutch furniture manufacturing company. 

The series of photographs enchant you to dive into the underwater world and swim amongst moooi's designs including 'raimond' by Raimond Puts, 'miyake' by Arihiro Miyake, 'heracleum' by Bertjan Pot and 'dear ingo' by Ron Gilad.

“To be submerged into water is to be in a place free from the constraints of gravity, free to explore a multi- dimensional universe. Here, like Atlantis, the world of Moooi is enveloped in water, fit for discovery. I invite you to join the mermaids in this alternative state of being.” - Wanders

The works will be on show at Moooi's showroom from September 19th-25th : The White Building, Portobello Dock, 555 Harrow Road, London W10 and at the upcoming London Design Festival, so if your planning to drop by make sure to bring you best swimwear; you're  sure to be in for a real treat.

Everyone loves a bit of Missoni, right? Be it the clothing, furniture, kitchenware...I mean who doesn't love little kids running around in designer wear?!

Now we can all afford you!

Alternative Camping

Not a fan of camping? Does the idea of sleeping in a tent in the middle of nowhere with no amenities whatsoever scare you a little? Well I may have just found you the perfect solution. No, I'm not talking about sending you off to Glastonbury with a gift basket of essentials, I'm talking about the Naibor Private Luxury Retreat in Massai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya. 

The luxury tented camp offers guests a chance to experience luxury in the wild. The camp consists of seven large tents, fully equipped with king sized beds, comfy sofas, wool rugs and a shady terrace for watching all the wildlife go by. 

If doing so you should at least enjoy sleeping in the outdoors, and do it in style, right? Just watch out for  the lions, tigers and bears!

Combining my two favorite things

I was browsing one of my favorite websites the other day, www.thecoolhunter.com, when I came across something so mouthwatering and aesthetically pleasing that I just had to share it with you all.

I have a slight addiction to unhealthy food, give me a burger, french fries, ice cream and chocolate and I am so happy...in my world, there is no dieting, so teamed up with my addiction to fashion and design, these luxury fast food photos are really dangerous.

Yup you guessed it, after finding these, a day of binge eating was triggered...lets hope you have more will power than me!

London Street Style

Last week I ventured out around London to find the city's most stylish women.

It takes a lot of courage to be approached out of nowhere and agree to be photographed for a random girls fashion blog within less than a minutes notice, and no time to fix your hair and make up, so thank you to all of you who so kindly agreed to take part!

Here are a few girls that I found about London... I'll be back on the street style hunt at the end of the week, so get your best clothes out and prepare to be photographed!

Easy Living...

Check out this amazing penthouse apartment in Sweden. I love the open plan layout and the all white decor with a touch of colour. The cosy roof and landscape view would be my ideal alternative to a back yard! What is your favourite feature?

Wedding Belles

Everyone loves a wedding, a reason to celebrate and a royal wedding makes it that much more exciting.

I woke up at 7am this morning and immediately turned on the TV to watch the start of 'The Royal Wedding', by 9am I knew every detail involved, who was invited, who was wearing who, and what was going to happen next, to the minute. I almost didn't want to leave my room to switch TVs just incase I might miss the first glimpse of Kate's incredible Sarah Burton dress, a dress that was definitely worth all the suspense. Kate was a beautiful bride and I know which designer I'll be calling when it's my turn!

Like most Brits today I am feeling very patriotic so I wanted to dedicate today's post to our new happy couple, William and Kate and share a few wedding photos that I love.
