Good morning lovely people

So just in case you weren’t aware, Glastonbury was on at the weekend. You know, that little festival on a farm that attracts about 175,000 people! Well, unfortunately for us we didn’t get tickets this year but what we did do was camp out in our living room with plenty of cider and watched the coverage on the BBC! Had we been there, our feet would have been most definitely occupying the ground in front of The Park Stage which had such an amazing line up. From Jamie XX to Fat White Family and Mavis Staples, there was such a cool array of artists performing throughout the weekend that I really don’t think I would have felt the need to go anywhere else.

Out of all of the performances we saw performing on The Park Stage, the stand out for me by far was by Father John Misty. He was brilliant. I can only imagine what the atmosphere must have been like as he was mesmerizing to watch. His stage presence, the way he sang, the way he talked, the way he interacted with the crowd – it was awesome.

Father John Misty is the alias of former Fleet Foxes drummer, John Tillman. If you haven’t got his album, I Love You, Honeybear , then you need to buy it! We tipped it as being an album to watch back in December and I have to say I think we were bang on. It’s a brilliant album. It is described by Tillman himself as being a concept album of his life including love songs about his recent marriage and amusing anecdotes of real life events about people he’s met or situations he’s been in, all put together over some awesome melodies. The album echoes that of some of the 70’s greats such as John Lennon and Elton John making his music and lyrics just as interesting as the man himself which is why I guess they work so well together on stage.

In case you missed his epic performance at Glastonbury then here is a little clip of him singing Chateau Lobby #4 (In C For Two Virgins). I’ve also shared a clip of him singing the title track, I Love You Honeybear, for a session in the BBC Tipi also at Glastonbury.

You can still view Father John Misty’s full performance on BBC’s iPlayer and I really would highly recommend it.

Enjoy…

The Little Vintage Car Co.’s Elegant and Bohemian Styled Shoot

Afternoon Lovely people,

We have a gorgeous summery shoot to share with you all today that is just as hot as the great British weather is today! Sent in by the fine people at The Little Vintage Car Co. and featuring their very cool and quirky 1963 Volkswagon Cabriolet Beetle, this styled shoot is sexy, bohemian and vintage all rolled into one.

Look out for the gorgeous bouquet and flower garland and a very cute vintage sun umbrella.

The Little Vintage Car Co. talk us through the shoot…..

Our inspiration for the shoot was elegant boho with a rock and roll edge.

Throughout the shoot we used bold colours and multi-textured fabrics to achieve that retro feel, but overall the look was designed to be unconventional and easy-going, combining new and old.

The theme fitted perfectly within the natural surroundings of South Farm, and our iconic little 1960’s Beetle was key to capturing that relaxed boho vibe.

In the shoot florals were an important element. Flower crowns and decorations of coral peonies, peach spray roses and cream lisianthus by florist ‘Buns and Roses’ finished the look.

We were lucky to have Dottie Photography, Alison Jenner (Hair) and Liza Smith (Make-up) on the shoot, they all did an amazing job and were great fun to work with.
