The Carrie Diaries is out now. Sex & the city is easily one of my all time favourite tv shows. So I picked myself up a copy. For those that don't know, it's a prequel to the tv show from when Carrie was in high school. According to Candace Bushnell, Carrie's style was quirky and vintage compared to her later onscreen stylin (Dolce & Gabbana wasn't available yet in the 80's).

I found a sweet deal on to win a pair of Manolo Blahniks when you purchase the book. (You need a Booklover's card but you can sign up for one for free)

You gotta be in it to win it, innit.

Whatta say he

Ever wondered about women's fashion from a guy's point of view? fashionbyhe is a blog just like that. I like to know what guys think about what we're wearing. We might think we know better, we might be feeling all chic, but is it sexy? We can learn a thing or two.

New m.i.a.

New music by maya finally!! The single is called Born Free, b b b b born free. It's rockin. I'll be keen to hear the rest of the album though because I'm not sure this will be my favourite.

There is an official music video for it and it's pretty heavy. It's got an anti-war theme where the redheads retaliate.

Update: The music video has been banned by YouTube for being too violent!

I push my life today
I throw this shit in your face when I see ya
cuz I got something to say"

A perfect cocktail right now in this warm weather is hazelnut and lime (and it'll warm you up in winter too). Mmm so refreshing and delicious...

Serve in a glass with ice. Crush 1/2 lime over ice. Add 60 ml (2 shots) of Frangelico hazelnut liqueur. Mix. Enjoy.
Add soda water for a twist.

I've been seeing it around lately and I'm really digging the short hair, mo-hawk look. It's bad-ass and fearless. If only I had the guts to do it. I think you've got to cut your hair short at least once in your life though.

90's child

Showing some love with a little throwback to the 90's.

Plaid, baby doll dresses and over the knee socks were all the rage thanks to Clueless.

The Craft, one of my all time favourites, introduced us to gothic fashion and a tight sound track. 

MTV was a music channel.

90210 was the original.

It was all that and a bag of chips.


New songs by Lady Gaga. Could they be on the new album?

Pass the dutch

This self-professed fashion addict from the Netherlands fashionnerdic has been featured in Vogue Paris recently and it's not hard to see why. I'm totally appreciating these looks, not to mention the little splash of retro chic.

ooh the floral pants (h&m)

the jumpsuit (blanco)

mmm that jacket (h&m)

the gold jewels

And a bad-ass haircut.
That's one addiction I wouldn't kick.


Checking out some Blondie shirts.



I really need to go and study but I was distracted by this toaster, it's so cute. I want it.

Too small

Ooh, I found these on eBay for $80 but they're a size 6, too small.
