Around the World

Today is a day for reading, emerging yourself in the magical world that is a book. Yesterday my Mum-bless her- brought me Grace Coddington's memoir definitely a good read and I can highly recommend it. Another book that I am itching it get my hands on is Alexa Chung's new book 'It'. Having only glanced briefly at it in the bookstore I can't say much for it except for the fact it has a pretty cover.

Your Never Fully Dressed Wihtout A Good Hat

I don't understand while not enough people wear hats. Hats have everything going for them, they:
1) Shield your face from the sun- News flash people- skin cancer, melanoma etc. Need I say more?
2) Disguise bed head- who actually has time to do their hair in the morning, hats are an instant full-proof disguise
3) Create the appearance of you being someone distinguished- when you're wearing a hat you hold your head high, hats increase your sense of well-being and importance, people will always follow the person wearing the hat

So from here on in the campaign to bring hats back in to the fashion limelight is back with vengeance. Some of my personal favourites include:

1) The Bowler- stylish and suave this hat has been around for centuries and will be for very more. This hat is not just for men or the daringly stylish, bowler hats are actually suprisingly easy to pull off
2) Straw or Felt Sun hat- I love them both. Felt is more hipster and in at the moment but I prefer Straw. This hats are awesome they both are stylish and protect from sun (see above)

3) Cloche hat- take me to the 1920s, the Great Gatsby brought these babies back lets not let them get away again
4) Beanies- are beanies even hats? Well they cover your head and that's good enough for me.

My Cactus's Name is Bob

I don't have greenfingers. And I mean that both literally and figuratively. When I was little my Mum tried to encourage me to grow things. She picked the simplest thing she could think of. Mint. So I had my mint and I had my little bit of earth. On the first day when I had to actually plant the Mint, I found a worm, freaked out and never came back again. 
This was the first of many traumatic and scar-inducing gardening experiences, that I'm sure will result in years of therapy in the future. However, I am willing to attempt to overcome this previous experiences. I intend to grow a cactus.
Cactus's are great. They are simple, minimal care, prickly (as to prevent against unwanted younger siblings) and they use minimal amounts of soil and what soil they do use you can buy in a pretty, worm-free bag. It's a win win situation. Plus Cactus's are cool, Cactus's are fashionable, everyone wants a Cactus. Right?


See! I told you they were cute. So If you email me at claireholland2@bigpond.com you can get one of these awesome cactus's (cacti, cactusus?!?!) in  a bucket, with lace on it ($35). Trust me they are way cool and awesome decorations for either your home or garden. If you're feeling particularly adventurous you can also get a Aztec Skull T-shirt ($20) or a Painted Tea Light Holder complete with twine (2 $15, 4 for $25). These are all awesome bargains and it would fantastic if you guys could shoot me an email and order something.
Lots of Love
