Bright Eyes

Bright Eyes

>> Can you tell that without a proper camera (well I'm using my sister's old DSLR at the moment…), meetings and trips cancelled, sitting at home waiting for Steve to return from Berlin, that in fact, I've become an idle and rather silly fashion blogger?  First the incessant Photoshopping and now the needless photos that say "Look!  Bright colours make me HAPPY!!!!!"  There is a reason why three lovely Smythson bits (the blackberry case, camera case and notepad) sit in perfect unison on my desk like a dodgy stationary shoot in the making.  It's not because I've suddenly gone all flush and thought quality leather goods were going to somehow replace my hollowed-out confidence in my apartment's security.  I'll be doing some Smythson-related stuff soon hence why I have this trio on my desk, which I like to sniff every now and again as though it were a smelling salt.  Wait a minute… waiting at home for the other half, mincing around the house arranging things needlessly, writing nonsensical prose, taking comfort in smelling salts after a 'quick turn' in the room… I have in fact become a ridiculous Austenian character.

    I can’t stand Jane Austen books but I love your blog. I’m so sorry about your apartment getting burglarized. I hope that your insurance reimburses you soon! Have a great day.

    I think you’re both doing a much better job at dealing with what happened then I could ever do. I’d think that turning into a Jane Austen character might actually be a plus? Either way I understand the prozacian benefits of a jolt of fun colour and a good whiff of leather.
    Thoughts are with you guys.

    i think i like these photos even more then with your fancy camera – it seems like you’re trying harder to take good photos and smacks of effort, A+!
