it’s a secret

The 20th April is going to mark the sixth Record Store Day in the UK. This is where independent record stores join together with artists to celebrate music. Special releases on vinyl and cd have been created exclusively for the day as well as a number of performances by artists will be taking place at stores across the uk.

There is going to be so much going on but one thing I will definitely be heading to combines music and art but it is one big secret! Secret 7″ has taken seven songs from seven well know artists and pressed 100 copies of each to 7″ vinyl. They then asked creatives all over the world to interpret the tracks and create a unique sleeve for the records. Then on Record Store Day, each one will be put up for sale, however you won’t know who created the sleeve or even what song you have until you have made purchase as the secret lies within!

Last weekend we went along to Mother in Shoreditch to view the collection. There are so many amazing sleeves to choose from and with entries from artist’s such as Ai Wei Wei and Gilbert and George I am gonna have to get there super early to try and get my favourite ones! It was so nice to be able to take our baba’s along too. Raphael and his friend Rafe, loved wondering round the space, checking out the sleeves and the giant robot in the room…

So who is gonna join me in the queue?

Stained Glass Jumper

Very excited! Got my Sheinside Black Mother of God Sweatshirt and I love, love, love it!

The jumpers print is really detailed and the colours are amazing! It is only available in one size but I reckon it could fit up to a size 12 to 14 comfortably. Modelled below by me & my little sister who has already tried to nick it from me, it is my favourite thing to wear right now!

Check it out at sheinside!

*sheinside kindly sent me this jumper to review. All thoughts and opinions expressed on my blog are 100% my own and always will be!

Oh baby london

If you are out and about in Brick Lane and looking for something a little different for your baba to wear, head on down to Oh Baby London. I came across this store when I was looking for a pressie for my cousin’s baba and have been hooked on their clothes ever since!

Mama and founder Hannah McHalick ‘s designers are totally original, the clothes are amazing quality and would look great on any little hipster!

I loved Raphael in his Tuxedo Print Playsuit and can’t wait to dress him up in my latest purchases!

And if you are about this weekend, they are having a sample sale at their store! With prices starting from 50p you are bound to pick up a bargain or two!

French valentine stamps

Every valentines day La Postethe French postal service, issue a set of heart shaped stamps designed by a French Fashion House. Started in 2000, the first set was designed by Yves Saint-Laurent and following on from them have been Chanel, Givenchy, Lavin to name but a few!

This years edition was designed Hermes. Slightly cheaper than one of their scarfs, these little souvenir sets make for pretty cool keep sakes.

Now who said that stamp collecting couldn’t be cool?

I literally cannot wait for the latest collaboration of my favourite artist Fafi x Undiz!

Fafi has released a couple of sneaky pics via instagram of the collection and true to form they are full of colour and feature her famous fafinettes!

So looking forward to seeing the rest of the collection but one thing is for sure I have to get my hands on a pair of these leggings!
