The lovely girls at All My Finds have just launched their latest collection of recycled fashion – Pick & Mix.
As the girls say: “Treats for kids who know the score – it’s one thing to have good taste, (and we know you do), but when skies are grey and everyone around you is idling in neutral – there’s nothing like shocking colour.”
This line up of limited edition re-worked, re-made and re-loved outfits are all individual one offs of upcycled fashion, clothing with tantalising names to get your mouth watering from Apple Bon Bon to Orange Crystals, Chocolate Lime to Lemon Sherbet. If you have a love of vintage and a head for ethical fashion check out their latest creations and pick and mix your rockin’ outfits for Spring Summer 2012.

I have a love/hate relationship with Winter. The bright, crisp days I love; the sludgy, cold and grotty days not so much. Today was a grotty weather day, so I turned to some old pics from a January photowalk at Anglesey Abbey near where I live in Cambridge. It’s nice to see that nature gives us some lovely vibrant colours amongst the grey drizzle sometimes, and I love the show of green shoots just on show at the bottom, like a promise of Spring.
I have also created a little Photoshop layered file for you to download and play with to use as a colour palette. Just insert your own pics and use the eyedropper tool to select your colours for the palette shapes.The text is rasterised. It’s sometimes nice to just have an easy to use and refer to template to make the most of lovely pics you might have to inspire you and post on your blog etc.❤
You are welcome to download, use and have fun following these t’s and c’s. All I ask is that you “like” first, then the link will appear! x
So here’s a little list of things I have been writing away from this here blogette last week:
✎ A post on Blurgroup about the Huffington Post not paying bloggers.
✎ I asked if Going Viral is the new Marketing Myopia
✎ I talked about why brands should be investing in design over on Cherry Sorbet.
✎ I shared my love of instagram and why fashion and beauty brands should be using it.
✎ I also looked at Nike’s Make it Count campaign over on GraphicDesign.com which will be up later this week.

One of my favourite shoe brands Melissa has joined forces with British designer Gareth Pugh for SS12.
Melissa + Gareth Pugh is launching two styles: the Ultra, £70, and a gladiator style flat.
Love. Love. Love.
Did I say love? Oh yes. Find them online here.
Love colour? Yes, yes I do. As a synaesthete it’s right up my street. And that even rhymes.
Love type? Why yes! I am a designer so it lights my preverbial. How about rings….with coloured letters?! Why yes! Love it!

Ok I wouldn’t normally say I am a tank-top kind of girl, but I saw these bad boys and fell in love just a little bit.

Imagine this: your own stylist.
Someone who knows your look, recommends some new key pieces for you, and sends them to your front door in lovely packaging, all tied up with ribbons like a package from a New York boutique.
So imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon Stylist Pick, which can do EXACTLY THAT.
I know. This is immense. Read More >
