more actual content shortly, i promise. but in the meantime: i know plenty of people have already mentioned this, but if you haven’t checked out what courtney wore today yet then you really ought to treat yourself. a mixture of magazine editorials, archive shots and blurred fash-blogger selfportraits of la love’s current stylings (hermes birkins and milk-white skin one moment, “upcycled vintage” confections the next) it never fails to entertain. me, i think i like the 90s riot-grrrl looks the best, simply because that’s the era when hole and courtney blasted into my life; what’s your favourite?
unexpected treats in unexpected places. lake ferry is a tiny village by a sea lagoon at the almost-southernmost point of the north island of new zealand. we went there a couple of weekends ago .. making the most of a nice day to head out in my temperamental little MG. the scenery was spectacular, the remoteness really bracing .. and in the local pub (the only place that i could see that was open) they serve truly excellent fish and chips.
it is a beautiful day here in wellington — the sort that makes you feel that spring might one day come. the sort that makes you forgive the dark and rainy day yesterday. it’s the kind of day we all need once in a while. i am not sure what i’m going to do with this lovely day. but it feels like it might be a day to look forward. to take a little holiday, even if only for a couple of hours. and to think about what might come next.
i have so much to tell you that it’s almost hard to know where to start. but for now, at least a start’s been made. hi, you guys. hope you’ve been well. let’s take this ride together .. what do you say?
