Just when you think you’ve grown up a little, a brand new toy comes along. I’ve been having an amazing time messing around with my Olympus XZ-1 camera this past week and seem to be taking sneaky snaps of everything. Some of them are useless but some of them come out great and I think this was the case for the short set of photos I stole from my local “General Shop”. Isn’t that a great name ?! You wouldn’t really know what is in a “General Shop” unless you walked in, would you ? And to be honest you wouldn’t really walk in unless you were looking for something you had no luck finding in “Specific Shops” ! Well that’s how long it took me to find out what was inside this wonderful trove. To my pleasant surprise I found exactly what I needed and more – teasures untold, thingamabobs, gadgets and whozits galore ! Isn’t it fascinating ?! I could have bought the whole place just so I had time to go through it piece by piece ! Unfortunately, all I needed were a few hooks, and they were just as easy to find as they were to put up ! Bye for now ! xx – – – – – – CNC on Facebook : CNC on Bloglovin’ :How many wonders can one cavern hold ?
Remember playing with Hama beads ?! Well not everybody grew out of it… I have been messing around with these colourful plastic beads for the last couple of days and have come up with some funky stuff ! The story behind me getting back into this is actually pretty amazing – I recently moved into a new flat and apparently the people who lived here before me were creative fellas ! They left me a whole cupboard of exciting bits and pieces, and a great big box of Hama beads ! Previous tenants, if you are still out there somewhere, THANK YOU !

Here is my first DIY post in the Feet category and I have to say I am pretty proud. I have called them my Walk of Fame Wedges, for obvious reasons, and love the way they shine even in day light ! The blue goes with a lot of my clothes and easily suits denim slims. It is also particularly in this summer so I will definitely be getting some use out of these beauties ! They’re high but easy enough to walk in so I will be showing them around London ASAP.Walk of Fame Wedges

I keep seeing them everywhere, and just received the daily UO newsletter that made me think, THAT’S IT, I’m getting me a pair of these babies ! So I clicked, and saw the price. The three-figure price. And thought again. But not to worry, I have scribbled it down in my Inspiration Book and will be planning a DIY session ASAP. Lightening bolt heels it will be ! Here’s a look at the Atalanta Weller ones that have inspired me whilst you wait, available on UO if you can’t wait. xx P.S. Keep reading my blog.To do list : Lightening shoes !
Yesterday was my very first Hoopdance class in Hackney, and boy was I excited ! I had hula hooped once before, and of course a few times as a child, but apart from that small amount of experience, I was (and still am) a total NEWBIE. The class was super welcoming and I enjoyed myself although I usually tend to have a shy disposition when amongst a new group. To make sure I wasn’t over-timid and did feel confident enough to mingle, I had prepared a special Hula Look for the occasion. I’d done a lot of research about Hooping in London and came to realise that it is a colorful and friendly world. Hoopers do not hesitate to pile on the body glitter or whip out their secret weapon : LED hoops that light up in the dark and create amazingly abstract and temporary art as they dance. On a more regular basis, quirky Hoopers tend to simply wear bright clothes and a massive grin on their face. So I went for that option to start off with.Hula Hair
Have you ever wanted to wear something but not “had the guts” ? Have you ever wondered what other people would think if you did ? Have you ever looked at someone with admiration and a pinch of jealousy ? Was it because they were wearing something you would love to wear ? Or was it because they were daring something you would love to dare ? Have you ever thought you can’t pull it off ? Have you ever secretly thought it would suit you too ? Have you ever wished you had more style ? Have you ever cringed when a friend wants the same top or bag ? Then why do you shop in the same place as them ? Have you tried anything different ? I repeat. Have you EVER EVEN TRIED something different ? If your answer to this last question is no, then read my blog. If your answer to this is yes, then please keep it up and read my blog. I hope that this blog will INSPIRE you.Clones and Clowns and Blogs, oh my !
