Inspiration, Inclination

Hello all

Just thought i would share 
a few random inspiring images with you to get those brains kicking

The amazing Corinne Day never disappoints 



I would very much like to live in this picture. <3 

I absolutely love this image 
for me the colours and the silhouette are so fresh

As you may have guessed 
this is a lovely piece from Nick Knight

 A great image of Coco Rocha enjoying her daily floral bath











This dainty piece of cake and the one above are by the AH-mazing Tim Walker
there will be a lengthy blog post on him shortly...

 'Sasha" by Mario Testino 
Such an enchanting innocence to this shoot <3

Linda Evangelista by Pierpaolo Ferrari 
for W magazine

Excellent! 
'Up-town and Down' by Mario Testino
with Freja Erichsen the great!

So i hope you like them and feel
'inspired'...
Even though i am beginning to dislike that word 
as it is so over used and when i typed it into the thesaurus to be
 'inspired by words'
this is what they gave me

Main Entry:inspired
Part of Speech:adjective
Definition:seemingly moved by supernatural powers
Synonyms:
carried away, divineecstaticexaltedfired,guided,

So i hope you were 
'Seemingly moved by super natural powers' 
(of fashion photography)

Ciao for now
(that rhymes and sounds good- stumbled on a keeper!)

KC Peaches delight

Hello all

So sorry for the long absence dear people,
I migrated to dublin for two weeks to do a make up course in 
LA Makeup academy
which was completely amazing!
A lovely little blog post to follow shortly
on all my make up looks over the two weeks.

But for now ill share some pictures of my leisure time in dublin 
which include my newly discovered and ultimate favorite eatery of all time.


Its a beautiful rustic place 
that brings you right back to the brilliant simplicity of food 
combined with the great idea of self service. 






But the best part of all this is that you really feel 
like your in the best food market of your life and you can try a bit of everything.

Just choose a box size (S, M, L)

and cram it with as much food as you can 
depending on what takes your fancy that day!


 A small section of the huuuge sandwich filling bar

The hot food area 
which also has the most amazing soups including rustic tomato and mature cheddar 




 Some of there gluten free cakes

Their cake selection that day 



 Gorgeous little individual desserts

Downstairs are the much talked about wine caves which serve a wide selection of wines accompanied by tapas style dishes of your choice, fondue for the cheese lovers and a great selection of desserts.

Heres my dinner box packed with all my favorite food mmm.
I choose a large one from the salads department but there was so much I had trouble finishing it.



They also do amazing fair trade coffee which is ground locally 
(they even tell you the name of the person and the date it was ground)

Heres my lovely friend Cayla enjoying her fairtrade coffee 
and her dinner box of goodness :)

Next time your in Dublin 
be sure to check them out 
I went to the one on nassau street which is their new branch.

Hope you like
and it was worth the wait,
let me know your thoughts.

peace out muffins
