TESSELLATE / ELLIE GOULDING + LYRICS (by Nive0us)

Part of the Annapurna range in the Himalayas.  Annapurna is the 10th highest mountain in the world, but the most deadly, with an incredible 37.5% death rate.  I’d love to treck to the base camp.  One day…

AMAZING. Love the 11th C.

Hello H&M, I’d like to commend you on your nice plus-size swimwear shoot.  In the words of Hadley Freeman:
I am a fashion columnist and it is spring and, as such, it is my legal and God-given duty to instruct you how to get a bikini body. So here goes:
1. Take one body, probably yours.
2. Take one bikini, probably yours.
3. Put bikini on body.

Street photography, old style.  By Vivian Maier.
Fab article from Boden about Jane Birkin.  Turns out she’s still a total babe!
Quote:

What I really admire about Birkin  – apart from her cheekbones, and the fact that she hasn’t felt the need to preserve her face with Botox, fillers and the like – is her enduring style. This signature look has remained largely unchanged for nearly half a century. The classy chanteuse has stayed true to herself. And at 66, is just as inspirational and gorgeous as she was during the Serge Gainsbourg years. I like her androgynous look, her preference for trousers and the looser fit of men’s clothes. Birkin once gave Vogue this style advice, ‘ Wear men’s clothes and smile. Old stuff is grand, especially men’s trousers. I feel very sexy when I’m wearing those.’ Obviously there’s a better class of charity shop in her arrondisement than mine.

Huzzah for charity shops.
