Kate Moss + Cara Delevingne "My Burberry"

What happens when the legend of my generation crosses paths with today's "it" girl?

Kate Moss + Cara Delevingne's "My Burberry" fragrance campaign is revealed and it is all we ever wished for from these beauties.  Clad in Burberry's classic trench coat, the english beauties prance around for the camera playfully spraying the new fragrance.  With Mario Testino as the eye behind the stunning black and whites we were surely set for greatness.  

Kate Moss is timeless and it appears that Cara is set to follow in the very same footsteps as her predecessor and much more.  We have been seeing quite a lot from Cara lately and honestly i cannot wait to see what else this girl has under her sleeves.  Loving this new Burberry campaign for "My Burberry."

FRACTURE Your Memories Now!

I recently blogged about bringing my dull bedroom walls to life with some Statement Wall Ideas.  I have also been hinting at this wonderful concept from FRACTURE which prints your photos in vivid color, directly to glass.  It's picture frame and mount in all in one.

The timing could not have been more perfect as i was approached by the company requesting i submit my very own pic for printing. Although i am not a fan of displaying photos of myself anywhere in my apartment, i chose a particular photo i've loved from my travels to Istanbul. In it you find me smugly posed in front of the Blue Mosque.  It was one of the most memorable and incredible trips of my life and so why wouldn't i want a vivid memory of it on my wall.

Fracture makes printing and mounting any of your favorite memories as easy as uploading your photo to FractureMe.com, selecting your preferred size and clicking submit. The quality of the finished product is tops! And believe me, after receiving your very first Fracture you will soon find yourself rummaging your files in search of the next image to upload.

And now the even better news: Exclusively through Chattering Gem, get 10% off your first Fracture order by using the code CHATGEM and get Fractured!  Hooray for you!  Now hurry and start creating.

Here are some additional reasons why you should look into your very own Fracture frame.
  • With Fracture's flat surface and included mounting screw you'll never bother with off-center frames again!
  • It's ready to show off straight out of the box!
  • 100% Lifetime Guarantee.
  • Fractures are shatterproof and will not break into individual pieces if dropped or damaged. Phew!
My room has been pretty stale and boring for some time now and it yearned personality.

It all changed the day i received my Fracture in the mail.

There it is. My favorite photo from my travels to Istanbul perfectly printed onto a glass frame and ready for mounting.

It pushed me to finally work on my bare walls. 

A few other pieces here are also from my travels so it all came together quite nicely.

I love the results!

The center of attention is given to my new innovative and sleek Fracture frame.  I am so very very happy with the results that i have been practically drilling my friends to jump on the band wagon.

In The Meadow

Never mind the dude on the lawn chair checking me out. 

Topher and i have come to love experimenting with locations and looks.  This time around he wanted to capture the sunset from Central Park Sheep's Meadows and that we did. I bought this jumpsuit a few months ago from ASOS just in time for my birthday.  I wore it then and have been meaning to follow up with a proper Personal Style.  I also wanted it to reflect a bit of the 70's which is what i hoped i achieved.  I enjoyed this post although it was quite embarrassing shooting amongst all those sunbathers.

Statement Wall Ideas

Getting this tiny Brooklyn apartment to where i would like it to be has been a struggle between time and money. The shared space is fair game but my bedroom is the one place i can really focus on and let my creativity flow.  I'm currently obsessed with the idea of creating a small corner office space and statement wall. I have made several sketches of what i ultimately intend for it to look like. I am however concerned with it becoming too cluttered and juvenile looking.

I spent a good part of this week slowly browsing Pinterest for ideas.  The goal is to take this weekend to get things started - set the concept into place and complete in time.  Below are some of the pics that caught my attention. I am torn between wether i would like a nice mix of shapes and colors of if i would like something more streamlined. Inspiration is everywhere folks, you just have to know where to look.

Have a great weekend lovers.  
Find something you love and do it forever.
