Quirk-spiration





Hello from Paris!!! Arrived this afternoon and so far the girls and I have had a fairly relaxed evening. Dinner and a few drinks with a little spot of sightseeing. Mature, I know! I feel so proud or ashamed... can't quite figure out which. Anyway, the madness starts tomorrow! We have an afternoon of pampering planned and in the evening, we plan on wrecking all any evidence of the afternoon’s pampering! Can’t wait!!!


In the meantime, I’ve been feeling a bit inspired and I put together a few quirky things on my train journey here. 

1.) A throne fit for a queen! I fell in love with this at first sight. It's such a statement piece of furniture. (Chair from Firebox)


2.) This is a weird item to own considering it's an actual human skull but with all these diamonds this Damien Hirst piece is one that stands out for me. It's soooooooooo shiny! (I sound like a magpie!) I could stare at this all day - I'd probably end up having nightmares of it but at least they'd be glittery nightmares...


3.) Okay this is technically a boy's toy but I would absolutely love to take one of these down to the beach. Not so much quirky as sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much fun! (Flying Water Thingymajiggy from Firebox)


4.) Black is definitely back and even much better so in mannequins (okay, weeeeeaaaak rationalisation) but these would be so cool to have as not only could they stand guard in your  room (another weak excuse) but also, you could test run outfits on them... I have to admit though, of all the things in this list, this is probably the one I'd get bored with the quickest. (Black Mannequins from 'who the hell knows?', no seriously I have no idea where you'd get these...)



5.) Ankara Accessories! I absolutely love these! It's so nice to see so many African styles infused into different items and these are some of my favourite. (African fusion accessories from Chic Therapy - click here to check the full collection)

Right! I'm off to bed now people. Take care and look out for news from Paris...

wow the chair is amazing and disturbing,one of those things you can't take your eyes off. It looks like something terrific for a movie set but who would buy it to sit in the living room?

Love Love Love the black octopus throne - freakin amazing!

@Matter of Style, I'd love to think that I would but I would have no idea where to put it. :-)

@Windsor Andersen, Thanks! I love it too!
