Hello Sailor

This summer is going to be a gorgeous one (even if it starts off a little white and anemic). Unfortunately my swimming atire is going to have to retire this year. It simply wont do anymore! Sorry trusty bikini, your Hawaiian inspired embroidery is looking a little ho-hum.

Summer 2011 is going to be all about endless sun drenched afternoons spent gracing the deck of a sail boat, with nothing but the salty smell of the ocean air and endless ice cold jugs of Pimms for distraction.

Okay – I am not quite going to make it onboard a yacht cruising the Mediterranean, but I can just about smell the ocean from my house (or is that the harbor?) and as for the Pimms, well this I can definitely do!

Thankfully, aspiring to live the highlife can, of course, be enhanced with the right apparel. This year there are such adorable swimsuits out there (hopefully we will see similar in SA), I just need to get my hands one! Perhaps a gorgeous vintage inspired bather or a suitably sailor’ish two piece. I can just picture it, languishing under a huge brolly, wearing an enormously oversized straw hat, sipping a Pimms and reading a good book.

Summer, please come and stay!

People and their pets

Are two thirds of the photos on your phone of your pet?
My friends run screaming when I want to show them a photo from my phone. They know its going to be at least 20 minutes before they can free themselves from the tractor beam I have locked on them.

I can’t help it, I love my cat and I love taking photos of her, she is after all the cutest cat in the entire universe.

Well at least I am not alone – seems that through the ages people have gone to a lot of trouble to immortalise their beloved pets (even permitting their kids to smoke cigars while doing so…)





All of these photos can be found on my Pinterest board (they come from various sources, some of which are not clear)
