all that toff and stuff.

will i?won't i?.....i will have to anticipate impatiently!

because of my lack of funds,there has been minimal to do lately,but i've decided that i will discover my

favs. for the week://

in music: Lenka.a bit like Feist and some Lily Allen!i like the folky,delicate sound of her music.
the album artwork/banner is tres' funky.and gives off a very crafty feel and i love collages!

i may just use the cut-out font idea to create a banner for nxt week birthday boy

in blogging:as i am a blogger myself,there has been alot of nosing around at other ppl's blogs.its so intriguing to know what they blog about and where their passion lies.especially when they focus on one particular area.

- Gourmet Chick: only just recently added onto my blogroll. blogger rambles on about her love for food but also shares her culinary skills
- Pia Jane Bijkerk: cannot remember how i found her but she has a serene dreamy sense in the way she presents her entries.and to add she is a paris-olic like me. she created soundscapes of everyday paris and reading her experiences just lets you imagine that your walking the streets without leaving your home (unless u come from the city of course!)
- A Field Journal :i love the crafts,the timeless vintage and just how & just the capture of the photographs.aesthetically pleasing :)!ideas how to decorate,adorn,how to make stuff....ahhhhh!!its actually motivating me to create a few pieces of my own

then there's: freshly{blended} & oh Joy!, which would put your creativity in tenderhooks. ahhh thank god for artistic creatives!!!

in books:

Paris:Made by Hand by Pia Jane Bijkerk

she describes it as: a book for lovers of all things handmade, the chic and unique, and of course Paris. In this book I take you off the tourist streets of this incredible city in search of Parisian artisans whose work is truly inspirational, and secreted studio boutiques filled with exquisite Parisian handmade treasures. I’ve been collecting these special addresses in my stylist’s little black book over the past couple of years and now with great delight, share them all with you in Paris: Made by Hand. Expect to see this fine city in a whole new light… i am indeed a lover for all things handmade chic and pari!!!love love to have this!!!

L.A Candy
by Lauren Conrad

Just released 2 days ago,im sure there will be a demand for this purchase esp for the hills fans!

"tell a behind-the scenes story of a young girl who moves to L.A. and unexpectedly becomes the star of a reality television show. The books will be loosely inspired by my own experience and are definitely influenced by my own life. Some of the characters may symbolize people in my life, but it is in no way calling anyone out.”

Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook by Taref Malouf

For those who love to make yummy cakes and bakery goods.Amazon describes it as "the chefs from the bakery share their recipes for a delicious range of 60 bakes, from deliciously light cupcakes with pretty buttercream frosting to moist chocolate layer cakes and zesty lemon meringue pie. Hummingbird recipes not only taste great but also look spectacular - without resorting to fussy recipes and hours in the kitchen."

talking of which today i shifted myself and collected my free cupcakes that Crumbs&Doilies are giving away every Thursday in their Covent Gdns market stall.Lookie these were mine!

look at the assortment!....

and they were absoluetely delish!
