I’ve always been a big fan of Lucien Freud’s artwork and think that these photographs reflect the clear and direct way in which he worked perfectly. They’re so natural and raw, that you feel like you’re part of the sitting. What a joy it was to find these beauties!
On that note I’ll leave you with this:
"I've always been interested in extremes, but I'm not interested in doing freaks. I want to paint ordinary people with the attention freaks might get if they appeared in public. I don't want to use the fact that someone may be made differently as a point of interest."

Sadly, I do not have any beautiful photos of spice-filled souks, and mesmorising mosaics from my recent trip to Turkey. Unfortunately, my camera just wouldn't fit in my hand luggage (well, I am an Easy Jet girl at heart) and so therefore we had a temporary separating but thankfully we are now back on speaking terms after having a break.
However, today I am heading for Latitude festival and cannot wait to see the likes of Foals, Caribou, Suede, The National and British Sea Power. Watch this space for fun-fuelled Latitude photos...
The picture above is of some coloured lambs stationed at Latitude, as tweeted by the festival’s twitter account this morning. Enjoy!

Markus Lupfer bags the award for the best ever Resort Collection, as presented by me! Forget traditional catwalks and photoshoots, Lupfer has created a fantastic video in which to present his Resort Collection. The video is entitled ‘Discover the Puzzle of the Mysterious Mind’, and is a 60s style mockumentary that looks at the science of fashion.

I recently heard about Cocosa at the Talk Store PR press day. The invitation-only fashion
site offers members significant discount on designer clothing and accessories. What’s not to love?
This is particularly good news as it saves a journey on the M40 to Bicester Village. I’ve fallen out of love with Bicester Village recently after leaving several much-anticipated shopping trips empty-handed.
As with any designer sale, you will need to shop with patience in order to purchase a bargain. New designers are launched on the site daily for a limited time only. There are a few middle-aged favourites amongst the designers, however if you wait a few days you will find some treasures. Including chic up-and-coming accessories designers Angel Jackson and Dannijo, to such established named designers as Tom Ford and Alexander McQueen.
After years of looking for the perfect leather jacket, I recently managed to find a beautiful Muubaa leather jacket which was reduced from £299 to £109 – bargain!
T-Shirt and Tails readers can now receive £10 off their first order over £50 by registering on Cocosa, and inserting the promotional code ‘luxurystyle’ at the checkout. Enjoy!
