Hello 2010!

I have always been the kind of person who lives in the future
(I'm working on the live for the moment thing)

I have a good feeling about 2010 and will be welcoming her in with open arms!

The 'Me' Wardrobe

I have been a bit slacking in my participation of My Place and Yours but this week's theme of showing your favourite item of clothing was too hard to resist! 

So here is my beloved leather jacket that i have had for around 10 years, it was found in a vintage shop and has followed me all over the world.

It's so hard to find a great fitting leather jacket and this ones a bit tight when done up but looks great undone. I have patched up the lining a few times and should just replace it but i think it adds to its charm!

Naughty or Nice?

Is it naughty or nice to pick out your own present?

I think it benefits both parties - I get something I like and my partner doesn't have to stress about what to get me. 

So when I saw this beautiful print by Kareena Zerefos I couldn't resist dropping the subtle hint of "I want this"! 

It was on sale too, aren't I nice!

The Mexican Film Festival is in town once more 
from dec 15-20 

Since I'm trying to learn Spanish I think it's a great idea to go and see at least one film between sewing like crazy. 
It was a great day at the market and I have to replenish my supply of bags! Yippy!

These are the ones that have caught my eye.... you can read about each film on the festival website here

My Little Helper

I would like to introduce you to my assistant.... 
she is always there to lend a helping hand.

Biting zippers for quality control, 
head bunts for moral support, batting items off the desk to keep it tidy and most importantly testing all bags for comfort!

I'm in a Summer mood and it's all about flower patterns for Mina + Oli linings this week!

I love this tea towel - great texture and colours.

Girl Crush

I know everyone has one, so why can't I!!
Well when my boyfriend told me for the third time to stop looking at Zooey Deschanel photos I knew she was mine! 

I have been listening to her album
She and Him: Volume One 
over and over again for weeks now, check out the very cute music video here

One of my fav things about Zooey is that she doesn't  take her self too seriously and seems like she would be a very cool person to hang out with.

Some of my fav pic of her....
