My new collecting habit: matching pyjama sets.

Wearing matching PJs is highly under-rated, but it is something which I have found VERY enjoyable over the past few months. I stopped wearing matching PJ sets after my old landlord stopped by one day a few years back when I was wearing a Bridget Jones style set and laughed at me. I stopped wearing them then and there... until now.

Thanks to lovely Zooey Deschanel, Taylor Swift and various fashion designers - 'cool PJs' is no longer an oxymoron. I highly recommend it, going to bed looking chic is a great boost for morale, and looks DARN CUTE.

Check out the Elle team wearing PJs to work for Red Nose day - sure wish my office had agreed to this!

A Dream of France

I'm feeling a little obsessed with the idea of a trip to France - and these posters are seriously adding fuel to the fire! 
Imagine cycling around pretty lanes, trips to a the local boulangerie for bread, drinking local wine and eating seafood after a day at the beach.. ahhhh.

Check out this online exhibition of cool covers from that hipster-staple of a book, Lolita. Yeah, I read it but I didn't like it - apart from the opening line... oh and the covers, some of those are good too.

'Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta.'
