New & Old Favorites

Yesterday my roommate brought back the most wonderful calendar of an artist's work I've never seen. Mark Spain is an amazing painter, his work captures the perfect part of a women's beauty and what they are wearing, I love them so much!
You can read about him and look at more of his paintings here

and in other news, I'm beyond excited to hear that The Row by Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen will be showing their first line at New York Fashion Week very soon! I can not wait to see pictures from this, their collections are always amazing, classic and beyond chic

Also Alexa Chung has been signed with Madewell (owned by J.Crew) to make a line of clothes resembling her own set to be in stores in August, she will also be the star of the campaign, of course! I will have to find a way to get my hands on everything once it's in stores. Everything is already so cute from Madewell, I know Alexa's just going to make it better!

by the way bloggers, thank you so much for following me, I can't believe I already have over 200 followers when the first of January I had 100! I hope you're liking what you see, if you want more of something please let me know! & my two classes went amazing today - I'm so excited, even my textbooks for my classes are great!

it takes two seconds (sorry Molly, I copied you haha)

Those paintings are lovely. They remind me of the times I've spent in London; they capture the beauty of London perfectly. My favourite is the third one.
Have a lovely day xx
