Hey baby I’ve got some etchings in litter I’d like to show you.
Visit a Marine Park, for when you feel like shaking hands with an otter.
after an apparent attack by a fox, a street cat named bob was found injured and curled up in the hallway outside of a support housing flat in tottenham were james bowen, a recovering heroin addict and homeless busker, was staying. james took the cat in, got him to the rspca, and nursed him back to health using what little drug money he had for antibiotics.
but in the process, bob helped to nurse james back to health as well, giving him a reason to get up in the morning and get clean. since his recovery, bob has refused to leave james side, following him everywhere for the last six years.
thanks to a literary agent who passed him on the streets, james has since written an international bestselling book about his hardships and friendship with bob. “we’re two injured souls looking for someone we can trust,” james says. done in collaboration with the writer garry jenkins from an islington café, the book also attempts to dispel some of the social stigma that goes with homelessness.
Apple - Holiday - TV Ad - Misunderstood (by Apple)

I made the pioneer woman’s oven roasted chicken with lemon zest, butter and rosemary. It turned out really moist and tasty so it’s going in my keep file. Click through for better pictures and recipe.
“Many years ago I sent an old, beloved jacket to a cleaner, the Sycamore Cleaners. It was a leather jacket covered in Guinness and blood and marmalade, one of those jobs … and it came back with a little note pinned to it, and on the note it said, ‘It distresses us to return work which is not perfect.’ So that will do for me. That can go on my tombstone.”
RIP Peter O’Toole
Yup. Standards be different, yo.
We’ve never done this before and have no idea what we’re doing, but we’re already throwing out terms like statement pieces and transitional pieces and filler pieces. This is way too much fun. It’s like putting a puzzle together.
To be continued….
Holly and I have collected so much vintage jewelry over the years we decided to make Christmas trees with them. Look at that little weird doll at the top of Holl’s. It’s a Christmas angel!
Carefree, if only for a moment
The French charity the Mimi Foundation told 20 cancer patients they would give them makeovers. All that was required of them was to keep their eyes closed to make the reveal more exciting. The patients expected that when they opened their eyes, they would look beautiful — but they got something else completely.
