#BLOGGED The most beautiful DSLR Camera Bag a girl could ever own!
Those of you Fashion, Lifestyle or Food Bloggers or stylish Photographers, who own a DSLR camera, will understand where I’m coming from when I say that fashion + practicalities never really add up when it comes to carrying your DSLR around with you without looking like a lost backpacker or worrying that you’ll scratch your lens.
I have been known, on occasion, to sling on a giant Lowepro backpack and look like I might topple over at any moment. And despite it being very sturdy, weather-proof, full of handy little compartments and a waist belt to lighten the load of my camera equipment… it is not sexy.
However, the White Rock Snake Camera Bag by Meli Melo is.
I spotted the Meli Melo bag on the Young British Designer’s ‘New In’ pages and if you’d have seen me, you’d have noticed the heart shaped adoration in my eyes. No joke.
I read up a bit more about Meli Melo, which describes itself as ‘a British handbag label with Italian heritage’. It prides itself in selecting only the highest quality leather skins and working with high-end Italian tanneries to produce superb, covetable, results.
I can confirm, my beautiful camera bag is strokeably soft. It’s definitely a special occasion bag, one that I wouldn’t want to wear out with over-use. It comes complete with a long gold and leather-effect chain and top carrying handle. It also comes in Mandarin Orange leather too.
I decided to pair my bag with the Garden White Gloss T Dress by Draw In Light, a Forever 21 gold chain-mail necklace and my Jenson Python Ankle Boots by Lama Peach, another one of my favourite Young British Designers.
Draw In Light produce wonderful, one-off, unique garments in their London studio using free-hand silk screen techniques. You can make an appointment to visit the studio, chat fashion and see how they work.

Library @wearelibrary, the online boutique selling prints and posters, is now live!
Vintage or modern, we love a good print.
Launching today, Monday 11th March 2013, Library is an online boutique selling prints from established designers and illustrators. Good times for all really! There will never be enough places to showcase and purchase work by independent artists.
Over the past few of years we (JMG and I) have personally ‘invested’ in work by Anthony Burrill from Beach London, Jam Factory, Klingatron, Tunnel Out aka Lets Try Hard, Others Studio, Mezzetty, and Joe Wilson as well as picking up a range of vintage pieces to pop into frames from Chesterfield Market and antique shops. Buying art is such a fun way to put your stamp on a home and it is also a great way of supporting new talent. Britain’s machine of a creative industry.
Library has a range of posters on offer from designers such as Family, Mou&Ye, Known As Unknown and my good friend Joe Mitchelmore aka Others Studio,
Library has carefully chosen each artist to offer a unique collection of artwork. Eager to promote like-minded designers, Library has been launched to act as an inspiration and provide thoughtful, intelligent artwork at a reasonable print (and price) point.
Founded out of a love for good design and using only the best printing processes, all the artwork has been commissioned exclusively for Library; the prints are often limited editions and cannot be bought anywhere else, online or offline.
Encouraging engagement with the wider design community, Library is keen to hear from other emerging artists and designers and to continually develop the pool of talent on offer.
Library prides itself on delivering a quality product, including printing all orders in house, on high-quality, heavyweight stock, using bespoke packaging and shipping worldwide.

I love working with Indian ink, you’ve got to be sooo careful though as you can’t make mistakes, I was a little bit ‘off’ around the mouth and jawline… But oh well! It was fun.
Playing around with paints. A little watercolour & Indian ink self-portrait.

Let’s Fill This Town With Artists… @CASSART on Berwick Street in Soho, London.
Sometimes it’s the packaging that makes the beauty product seem even more special! @lizearle @bootsno7 @prada @narcisostudio @soapandglory #beauty #blogger #fashion #illustration #art #painting #watercolour #fun #creative
Inspired by @garancedore & @GoddessGuide’s Gisele Scanlon. I’ve treated myself to a little set of @winsorandnewton watercolours today along with some indian ink, graphite sticks, charcoal and a book of blank watercolour postcards. Hopefully this means I’m in for a creative 2013. It’s been far too long since I painted something. I’ve sketched a few little illustrations of some of the beauty gifts I got from my family this Christmas. (I’m a bit rusty…) #newyearsresolution #art #creative #inspire #painting #watercolours #artist #illustration
My love affair with Draw in Light continues… this time it’s the over-sized Easy Silk T that’s got me hooked. I think the swirls and print technique take me back to being at art college in Liverpool. I love the fact that Draw in Light piece’s, because of their hand-printed patterns, are completely unique.
I’ve teamed this with my Topshop casual military shirt, Dr Martens Clemency boots and my big vintage fur hat.
