My Favourite things right now: terrariums, Missoni bathroom, Caribbean calypso, What We wore exhibit.


  1. This spectacular Terrarium, found by Wee Birdy whose wonderful blog I used to follow religiously when she was living and writing about London, this is the best terrarium I’ve seen yet:               Terrarium-Glass-jars-display
  2. All Missoni towels, but especially Noemi (picured) and this fabulous bathmat from Anthropologie. My bathroom is telling me that it desperately needs these in its life!     Missoni Textiles towel Anthropologie bathmat
  3. My very talented close friend Nina has has been commissioned to publish a photographic history of what people wore from 1950 to the present, a peoples history of style. She will be showcasing it at tomorrow night’s Dalston Takeover at the Victoria & Albert Museum Friday Late, if you have a good pic go along and you may end up in her book!FL_June_postcard_610px
  4. The 60th anniversary of the arrival of MV Empire Windrush last week has got me listening again to a brilliant Caribbean calypso compilation of London immigrants and their observations of life in London in the fifties. The album series is called London Belongs To Me, it is a truly brilliant collection, my favourite is My Landlady by Lord Kitchener CS1820995-02A-BIG
