Matchbook is another one of those incredible online magazines that you wish you were part of!  Filled with pages of inspiration, fashion and fun, not to mention gorgeous photography.  If you haven't visited their website yet (they launched in January this year and already have their 4th online edition), then go and enjoy!  Just perfect for a rainy day like today.... x

See Emily Play

Emily is a Swedish freelance photographer studying fashion, media and communications.  Her blog is in Swedish and I have been laboriously copying and pasting into Google translate to read her posts, only to discover that she has links to posts with the English translation! She is gorgeous and so is her blog and her photographs! 
Here are some pics she took recently in Nice - there are so may more so visit her blog - See Emily Play and enjoy!

If I could....

...... I would love to take a stroll through the streets of Paris to do a bit of window shopping!  That's just what I feel like doing this weekend - if I could...  After window shopping I would take in a bit of sightseeing, have a coffee and brioche in a street cafe, followed by a visit to some galleries.
My sister is off the France next month - a few days in Cannes for the Cannes Lions Advertising Festival (she keeps reminding me that this part of her trip is work!), then a week in Antibes before going to Paris - sigh, I am completely envious!

Coriander Girl

At the moment I am into anything and everything floral!  Which brings me to a blog I love to visit, Coriander Girl.  Alison is a florist with the most gorgeous shop in Toronto and I love her blog and the fact that she has a pet rabbit called Harry who features on her blog regularly - she has a beautiful website too.  My wonderful aunt has an equally beautiful florist shop right here in Cape Town - Fabulous Flowers. I will do a dedicated post for her beautiful floral designs soon!

For You Love Me

For You Love Me is another one of those incredibly inspiring blogs that make you go ahhh...  Carissa and Andrew Gallo are a couple who photograph and style weddings, engagements or anything else beautiful and inspiring.  I particularly love this engagement shoot for this gorgeous couple, Zach and Bree - view more pics here.

Winter wardrobe

I am loving the cooler weather and the chance to wear jackets, scarves and boots again!  I am without a doubt a real fan of winter fashion and a collector of jackets.  I have discovered another amazing fashion blog - Hanneli.  Hanneli Mustaparta was a model before becoming a stylist.  She also does make-up and is a talented photographer.  Her Sartorialist-style blog is amazing with pages and pages of fashion inspiration.  Love these looks.  Alexa Chung gets it right every time!

Central Park in Spring - From Me To You

There is no question that New York City is a place I have to visit and it is my dream to be go there in either spring or autumn when I do.  I get such city envy when I read Monique's blog Tipa Tipa and after looking at these pics on Jamie's spectacular blog, From Me To You, I am more committed than ever to make that trip!  Jamie is the most amazing photographer and if you haven't visited her blog already (unlikely!) then I suggest you go there immediately.
