10 Favourite Things

Alex Loves and Sabine Psynopsis gave me an award and I thought it would make quite a nice post (and let me be quite self indulgent...) so if you have any questions or would like to get to know me a little better, just ask in the comments section! They are just things, not family or friends because they go without saying plus they don't like having photos taken...

They're not in any particular order, just as and when I thought of them....

1. Favourite Accessories Designer

Fred Butler has been my favourite accessories designer/set wizard/blogger for a rather long time now. She's just a little bit wonderful....

2. Favourite Jewellery Designer

Who doesn't love Fannie Schiavoni's work? That's what I'd like to know... It's beautiful, interesting and unique.

3. Favourite Shoes (as of this morning...)

The lovely Susie Bubble posted these amazing Finsk shoes this morning and I immediately fell in love. Finsk have always been a firm favourite of mine but this is just, wow...

4. Favourite Film

This was a tough decision but I settled on the film that I've loved without fail every time I've sen it, which is a lot... Amelie is a beautiful, vibrant and just plain lovely film. It never fails to cheer me up.

5. Favourite Band (at this very moment in time...)

I like a massively varied amount of music so had to choose what my favourite band of this precise second... Slow Club have always been up there in my favourites but seeing as the sun has just come out, their music is just perfect for how I'm feeling. I thoroughly suggest you listen to them or go and see them as soon as you can.

6. Favourite Food

I would gladly eat Paella every single day if I could, it's delicious.

7. Favourite Country

I haven't actually been to Thailand yet, but it's been a pretty much lifelong dream to go that I will fulfil in May this year, I am so excited it's not even healthy...

8. Favourite Style Blogger (at the moment...)

Calivintage always has gorgeous, original outfits to show us with really nice photography. My favourite blogger changes pretty much every day but today is a Calivintage day. Plus, I think she looks scarily like me in some of her photos so that's fun to freak myself out...

9. Favourite Illustrator (at the moment...)

Illustrators are another favourite that change pretty regularly but I can't help but love Krisatomic's work, they are so fun, pretty and captures the essence of the designs perfectly.

10. Favourite Magazine (at the moment...)

I have about a million favourite magazines but Sketchbook is at the top of the pile at the moment, it's so unique and has a very crafty feeling about it which I love. The current issue is a Bloggers special so go get it quickly as I think the new one is due rather soon. Sketchbook are also having a pop up shop in Carnaby Street which will have many a valuable lecture and events, see their website for more details.

So they are my 10 favourite things, well, at this moment in time. I think it would take forever for my indecisive brain to choose my favourite things of all time.

As is tradition, I now nominate 10 of my favourite bloggers to tell us their favourite things (you don't have to...) so here goes!

Nice Try, Radio (This is my boyfriend, go harrass him)
