Last month I embarked on a project with a few of my talented friends, whose new production company is here. It was a great experience , being creative and watching them at work was so inspiring. The finished project is the above video.

My friends are in a brilliant band called Cowbell. They have been compared to the likes of The White Stripes and The Black Keys, and in my eye’s that’s pretty great! I’m not telling you that they’re good, just because they are my friends and I love them, I’m telling you because well… they are! They have just come back from touring around the UK and Berlin. And have also just been played on BBC Radio 6 by Lauren Laverne and Nemone.

Please check out the video and let me know what you think.

Also if you do like their music please do pop along to their single launch in Shoreditch, London. All the information is on their website here. It would be great to see you.

Oh and you may also recognise the guy in the glasses in the video, as it’s only my lovely boyfriend who is all over this blog!

I've been trying to be better at remembering to take my camera out with me. It's been sunny in London, and it's made a huge difference to everyone’s mood. Walks in the park, enjoying a cup of coffee outside and glancing out of the window at the sun has been delightful these past days.

I hope this weather stays a while...fingers crossed.

All of the above photos are taken in Stoke Newington, North London.

1. The view from my living room. I'm in love with the stained glass windows.
2. A quick coffee in The Spence Bakery, before we had to dash off to seperate meetings.

Pancake day!

When i was younger i wasn't a huge fan of Pancake Day.

I remember early on being sat in food class and force fed pancakes with sugar and lemon on top. You know the lemon juice that comes in a bottle rather than a real lemon.. yuck, is all I can say!

I only got over my dislike for them when i visited America back in...Um.....2004. To my surprise the pancakes were thick and fluffy, and the lemon juice was replaced with maple syrup.
So what did i do this morning...? I woke up extra early to make a big batch of them.

I used this recipe and ate mine with berries and served up Glen's with bacon and banana (lucky boy!)
Tonight we've had a couple of friends over for pancakes and I must admit Pancake Day is becoming one of my favourite days of the year!

a new week

Catch A Tuesday from Oliver Peoples on Vimeo.

I have spoken a lot about my love for Zooey Deschanel in the past and when i stumbled upon this video at the weekend I was in Zooey heaven! I love this quirky video, the clothes, the glasses. the concept.
I'm sure that most of you have come across the video before, but i thought it would be a nice way to start a new week. Enjoy!
