Undercover Brother in SE13

Found this bust in an antique place in Lewisham (sarf London). Thinks it's plaster moulded, but that's purely a guess based on touch. Was quoted £45, if you want to know where,contact me no problem!

Changed my mind today...

Phenomenal Woman!

...and didn't feel bad about it!  Many times I have gone through with things out of a need to please or keep the peace or worst of all I didn't believe I had a choice. Well these days I continually remind myself I do have a choice and it's OK to put my needs first every now and then.  There are people who will try and make you feel bad and 'switch' on you when you don't go their way, but take note as that says more about them than it does about you!
I changed my mind and the world didn't come to an end, no one got hurt and I can change it back again... if I choose to!

'If it doesn't feel right, don't do it. That is the lesson, and that lesson alone will save you a lot of grief.' -Oprah

Himalayan Salt Tea Light...lovely bit of rock

Stopped off at one of the numerous pop up Xmas markets over the weekend and got this lovely gift for myself. Looks stunning when lit at night and apparently has a number of health benefits.
Thanks Magna, will be getting the lamp in the new year.

Clair Huxtable: Style Icon

Recently I was chatting with a friend about parenting and one of the questions that came up was: Which famous mother do I aspire to be like? My immediate answer was Clair Huxtable, from the eighties sitcom: The Cosby Show!
Well it looks like there are a whole heap of people who also admire this lady because blogs are springing up celebrating the style of this very smart, wise, straight talking and loved up mum.

So many clips to choose from, but I picked this one as I actually remember when I first watched this episode and just being blown away by the clever and very funny scene!

On UK television there was no one else like her. The fact that she was the first positive black female character I thought of (over twenty years later !!!!) says a lot about the show and the actress Phylicia Rashad. I was lucky enough to see her perform in the stage play, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof last year in London, along with James Earl Jones.

Bet you ending up watching more clips!
