Well hey there beloved readers, over the past couple of months I've been slowly nesting and gathering bits and pieces for the little bubba, but you know what? I've bought absolutely nada for moi and well, that's just not on! 

Anyhoos, I'm mega excited since it's payday week! Whoopee! Capturing my imagination and my heart right now are bold geometric prints, well, anything wildly colourful and likely to brighten up my current ongoing all black - ninja style wardrobe. 
I'm still bowled over by amazing printed creations by the likes of Peter Pilotto, Jil Sander, Marni, Matthew Williamson and digital prints by Felder Felder.
I am seriously loving this zig-zag shirt dress from Tommy Hilfiger (SS13) £325, street-style inspiration from Tommy Ton (via at Fashion Week and also printed headscarves (image via here), the bolder the better I say and it doesn't matter if the prints clash!

1. All over check print T-shirt by asos now £17.50. 2. Graphic print sheath dress £44.99 by GAP. 
3. Geo print cigarette print pants by Forever 21 $17.80 4. Lomography Cubic La Sardina camera at £99

Of late, the image reflects exactly how I've been feeling once I walk through the door of my home... Totally cream-crackered. The 3-hour long return journey on public transport is rather treacherous especially with pelvic pain added to the equation... I honestly don't know how other women manage it! Anyhow, all is well but I'm afraid you'll have to excuse me on the blogging front, I might not be here as often as I'd like but I most certainly still take pleasure coming over to visit you guys. 
It's my form of escapism... from reading baby/parenting info to freak-me-out stuff like on one of my pregnancy apps. I read that I can probably feel my little one inside scratching with their fingers inside the uterus, how CREEPY?!! So anyhoos, thank you for hanging around!

Debonaire heart sole heels by Charlotte Olympia, a heartbreaking £545!

I'm all about delicious things when it comes to Valentines day and it seems these are just a few lustful things that caught my eye! 

I have fallen head over heels (ha ha) over Gianvito Rossi's SS13 collection, check it out here shoe lovers! For the preggo lady in me, I thought these floral trainers would be a stylish casual and comfy alternative to heels and at £35 (from asos) they're a bit of a bargain, no? I love ankle straps courts, these are a little unusual and fun, especially with the contrast heel and metallic toe cap via Kurt Geiger here. The purple colour is also fab!

Whether you're staying in or going out, how about making these delightful little bites of heaven? Recipe below!
 Millionaire's Fudge via Weekend Magazine (Guardian UK)
Makes 36 Squares - Recipe:
115g (4oz) raisins
1tbsp dark rum
225g (8oz) plain chocolate
225g (8oz) plain chocolate flavoured cake covering (cocoa based product from supermarkets)
405g can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
55g (2oz) white chocolate
25g (1oz) dried cranberries or sour cherries
15g (1/2oz) shelled pistachio nuts, chopped

Put the raisins & rum in a bowl, cover and soak for 30 minutes. Line a 20cm (8") tin with baking paper. Break up the chocolate and the cake covering, place in a microwaveable bowl, add the condensed milk and cook on high for 2 minutes. Stir and cook for another minute, stir until the chocolate melts, then stir in raisins and vanilla and pour into the tin. Tap the end of the tin to get rid of trapped air bubbles. Melt the white chocolate and drizzle over the fudge. Scatter over the cranberries or sour cherries, nuts and chill until set. Cut into squares using a hot wet knife.

Pretty Pink drinks... I do love a good Cosmopolitan, but why not try something a little different, like this 'Tickled Pink' cocktail?

Tickled Pink - the perfect Valentines day cocktail

1 oz. Belvedere vodka
1 oz. Sugar-free raspberry preserve
1 orange wedge squeezed and dropped into shaker
Shake on ice
Pour 1-1/2 oz. of Mionetto Prosecco in martini glass
Pour shaker into martini glass with Prosecco
Garnish with 2 fresh raspberries on a bar pick

Whatever you're up to on Valentines day, I hope you all have a lovely time. I will say that this Tweet from Kizzy at The Dainty Dolls House nailed my thoughts on V-day: "I don't celebrate Valentine's Day, love is EVERY day & never found in gifts, but in the heart :)"

For Mr. Perseus and I, everyday is Valentines day! Sending you all lots of love!

Welcome to Friday lovelies, boy am I glad that there's some to unwind and for me to catch up big time on sleep if possible. I hope you've all had a brilliant week and are all set to enjoy your weekend. 

My dear readers, I am beyond excited for the weekend, as my family & I will be celebrating Chinese Lunar New Year on Sunday... The run up is always a great time too, since I get to stuff my face for 3 consecutive days... add Pancake day, Valentines Day, my God Daughters 3rd birthday party and a friends CNY banquet celebration next week, that's like a whole entire week of just eating. Good thing I'm pregnant huh?

I'm also excited, as this year is Mr. Perseus' year and little baby bao's special year - the year of the snake! It's a great year for those who are of water elements... but overall, it will be an interesting year for everybody across the globe since the fire element of the snake clashes with the water energy this lunar year.

Right, time to leave you with some images with pops of red, a lucky colour in Chinese Culture.

Hello gorgeous looking cupcakes?! They're probably too pretty to eat. I love these little bites for guests - peanut butter cookies and gold glitter dipped fortune cookies! The red envelopes along with the mandarins are a very popular display in households over the New Year period.

The home is ready and prepped for the big day... what are your weekend plans? Will any of you be popping into Chinatown for the festivities? Whatever you're up to, have a spectacular one loves.

Here's to a fabulous Chinese New Year!

Happy Weekend loves! I hope you are spending this time to chill out and have fun! I've got a little bit of catching up this, but wanted to have some time away from the computer for a change!

Anyhow, staying away from the internet kinda didn't last long as I was blown away by this amazing shoot by Ellen von Unwerth for Vs Magazine. I love all things 60's, and although I had never heard of the infamous double act of the sixties, the Kessler twins ought to be blown away by this tribute photoshoot! Oh did I mention that legendary stylist Patricia Field styled this fun shoot?

 Double Vision? Kessler twins were a legendary show girl act during the 50's and 60's, their 1976 Italian Playboy cover was the editions fastest selling cover during that time. (Source:Daily Mail &

 It's all glitter and va va voom for the supermodels!
 Sequin hotpants, how very Kylie?
 I'm totally crazy about the big beehive up do!

I don't know about you, but have you noticed more and more sister, twin or gal pal style action on the streets? I'm not talking about matchy-matchy identical outfits but more sassy smart styling action that compliments the other sister/twins/similar looking girls' style, aka 'twinning' (did Grazia coin that term?).
I've only ever once turned up at an event doing the black, white and a touch of red accenting, but someone else did this in the form of masculine styling, it rocked and we ended up being shot together.
Has this ever happened to you?

Well dears, carry on with a wickedly super weekend!
