Playing about with Instagram, an app recently downloaded to my iPhone which I am becoming a little bit obsessed with. Love the range of effects that can be overlayed onto photographs, including 'toaster', 'earlybird' and 'x-pro 2' which gives a lovely contrast and takes the colour saturation down just the right amount - so easy to create dreamy, romanticised images with a vintage edge.

Lust List// July

Things that I need in my life right now - scuffed to perfection snakeskin ankle boots with just the right amount of yeehaw about them, a beautifully boxy breton striped tee from Hope, sky blue Converse as seen here on Rumi Neely (pretty much a girl whose life I would like to actually steal), a gold Michael Kors watch, Erin's epic tattoos and basically everything in the amazing summer jewellery collection from Luv AJ - not so much jewellery as extremely beautiful weaponry.

I want the sunshine to enter my grey English life so that my freckles will come back.. my wanderlust today is almost overwhelming. I may read books on India all day to abate it.

Sometimes I just don't know...

Recently I have spent lots of time appreciating the beauty of the simplest things - probably due to my general lack of inspiration and subsequent thirst for visual stimulation - but nevertheless sometimes it's nice to just get back to basics.

Still no job as such, although I did have an interview this morning (fingers crossed) so plenty of time to get my life together and do lovely things like buy flowers and eat lots of cake. This period of freedom will prove to be, I feel, shortlived so I've decided to make the most of it while I can and embrace the uncertainty. Sometimes not knowing is the best way to find out.
