The weather has finally started to brighten up a bit and last weekend, I was able to take Ziva for a little walk without having to change into waterproofs!

In my opinion, any Eustratia item would make a great gift. Each item is hand-crafted, with love and attention to detail and going out of your way to purchase something from an independent designer definitely shows you care more than just picking something up from your nearest superstore.
I understand however, that there are a fair few products on the website at the moment and it might be daunting for new customers to look through them all, so I have picked out a few items I feel would make particularly good Christmas presents.
Open shoulder top
Facing unicorns necklace
Stripey hair bow
“Ruby” gift set.
If you’d like even more ideas to aid your Christmas shopping, Eustratia intern Lindsay, has featured her own sale picks on her blog, Rose tinted glasses.
The piece of land next to my house has recently been cleared of all its trees which ended up in a large pile next to the back wall of my yard. I thought they resembled a pyre and would make a good backdrop for a shoot.
This is one of my favourite simple outfits at the moment. I like outfits that manage to balance elegance, drama and toughness and if they can be easy to wear as well that’s always a bonus. I could wear this almost anywhere and feel comfortable.
I recently started contributing to Rebelicious magazine with an inspiration and shopping feature. I’ve been featured in the magazine a few times so I thought it was time I give something back and I hope readers appreciate my taste.
This is this months feature, which you can view online in the current issue preview.
If you aren’t familiar with Rebelicious, you should definitely check it out. They offer online and print versions as well as additional online content and features.
Those of you who read my blog are probably used to my current obsession posts. I’m thinking about taking them monthly and introducing a new feature soon to keep things fresh.
I especially enjoy the shopping feature and featuring my favourite independent brands, though I always try and keep it balanced with some easily accessible high street finds that are perfect for that last minute night out.
I’d love to hear what you think of Depeche Vogue and also if there’s something specific you’d like to see on here.
Today we went to a barbeque and got the chance to take some pictures on the way.
