In homage to the fact that it is fashion season right now, and in homage to the fact that I heart NY and exceptionally in homage to Jay Z, who is married to Queen Beyonce...here is an alternative version to his hit video Empire State of Mind found at his own style blog LIFE+TIMES.

Can I have your attention please? Great, now that I have it I will introduce to you my Wales photo snaps. Last month this tropical Bamboo Mama went into the British countryside to hang out with the sheep and hay bales. Spending time with our new extended family (my brother in laws family) we stayed in Mum and Dad Jones' listed farm house, rooms filled with masses of exitable children (some all the way from Germany) enjoying fry up breakfasts, Abba covers from the kids and good wine.

Old photographs, what a gem they are to find. For some time now pop culture has been absorbed and obsessed with all things vintage, with nostalgic themes popularising blog templates, photo processing apps and fashion too.

I being a fan of prints, colour and many things Mexican whooped at this amalgamation of concepts that had resulted in this beautiful collection.
Everyone needs a friend like Faith Mwende, and I am so super blessed she is mine! Having coffee with her the other day she continually inspires, with her big heart, intelligence, dreams and love. She is on a pretty big adventure soon. Get to know...
This is why this Indian beauty will be one of my favourites of all time...
Feeling inspired by the boys in my life asking and complaining (Jonathan) about when and if I would start making some guys stuff, it left me thinking about men's style in general. Nothing beats a boy in a cute outfit, looking sharp but also cool, fun but classic can really make the difference. Also, Men's fashion and style has come a long way too, and showing that there is a niche and market for all different styles. Choice is now not just limited for the ladies, the boys are coming up trumps too with so many men's style blogs filling the world wide web. Read on to see some of the boy blogs I peek...
