Daks on Daks on Daks......

Joblessness and my growing obsession with Instagram = a snap happy blogger, and because I still feel a little wanker-like taking iPad pictures outside, my favourite subject to shoot is yours truly.

Sidebar: maybe its just me but lifting that behomoth of a device called an iPad to take a  picture will always look odd. Asian tourists, who are truly not a movie cliche but do really exist in massive droves have switched from their DSLRs and Leica's and the like and can be spotted everywhere taking pictures with their iPads. It still feels kinda weird for me.

Went to yet ANOTHER house party last week, I am fast becoming a house party connoisseur, haven't been to this many since 2003 or so.

Blazer: Bershka
Beatles tee: Primark
Denim shorts: Topshop
Studded velvet smoking slippers: Topshop
(I'm really getting used to this "list your outfit" thing)

There's always that point in a house party when things look like they're about to descend into a mass orgy, some wag starts dimming the lights, people start having a little private time in dark corners, the music changes from upbeat to mellow, some jokers start forming drunk....well my gorgeous profashionals, that is when this blogger usually makes her exit. A lesson I've carried with me all my life is that nothing ever stays hidden, compromising pictures or videos can come back to bite you in the ass and as a future Minister for Petroleum (shoutout to Diezani), can't have anything messing with my political career.

Got back to the old homestead and started getting stuck in the Instagram.

Someone saw this picture and actually asked if it was my younger sister. My baby Muna is 14 years old, a whopping 12 yours younger than me, I was flattered for a nanosecond then just downright annoyed, having me on is one thing but taking the mickey to that extent...not cool, I live perpetually in fear of looking "old". Himself, however confirmed that I looked miles younger in this photo, he is heavily biased though and not to be trusted with effusive compliments.

My obsession with bestial jewellery roars on

see what I did there :)

Amazing how I'm so terrified of live animals, I probably have the worst animophobia I've ever come across but once they're immortalized as jewellery I'm all over it.

From top - bottom
Coiled snake ring - Miss Selfridges
Scarab beetle ring ( I also got the earrings!) - Topshop
Frog ring - Topshop
Owl ring - Miss Selfridges

I could totally live in this shoes...well until the next big thing comes along. I'm such a trend whore, my excuse is I'm still trying to find my style niche, its just taking me longer than most people.

Hey Paul, hey John, hey Ringo, hey George (who is hidden somewhere between my blazer lapels and my right mammary).

Love and light xx
