Granny Racer

My new penchant for nail polish is presenting a great opportunity to show off some little trinkets and toys to spice up my close-up documentation of gradual improvements in my nail doodling skills. ;)
Here we have a wind up granny, zimmerframe walker and all. My awesome mother in law gave us two of these for Christmas a couple of years back. Her foil lost her head so we have her carry it in her walker. Her clothing matches my lavender&yellow nails. :D

I haven't much to say today so I'll just dump a list of awesome movies I watched recently on you like a big old televisual bomb. . Some of these are Hollywood block busters, others independent. Some of these are bleak and hard hitting, others laugh out loud funny light relief.
In no particular order: Midnight Cowboy, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Alphaville, Winter's Bone, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Moon, District 9.. my brain's just gone blank. Oh yeah, Sherlock Holmes was a good laugh too and I re watched Harold and Maude and Full Metal Jacket (again) the other day. Still awesome.

And because nobody can live on television alone here is a small selection of music I've been plugging myself into over the last few days at work:

Com Truise | BASF Ace 
Delphic | This Momentary 
Manchester Orchestra | Shake it Out
White Lies | To Lose My Life
Two Door Cinema Club | Undercover Martyn
Fleet Foxes | Helplessness Blues
The Sandwitches | No No
Tom Waits | Clap Hands
Foals | Spanish Sahara
and the below I've looped through those headphones for hours on end:
Florence & the Machine | What the Water Gave Me
Crystal Castles | Not in Love ft. Robert Smith

Happy weekend you all :)
Make it a memorable one!

  1. So cute, love your nails!

  2. I saw Full Metal Jacket when I was about 19 or so and I could NOT stand it at all!!  It just made me feel empty and strange. I love Sherlock Holmes. All the others. . .you certainly have a taste for "strange" it seems hehe. You are so unique. I love that you are showing off trinkets with your nails! Amazing. Love the first photo a lot!

  3. I love all of the details of this look.  Also: WOO Tom Waits!

  4. I really like this cute take on the nautical look! The skirt has such a pretty print!

  5. This whole outfit is so cute. I really love the green socks! And your granny racer. I've never heard of 'Midnight Cowboy' but I'll have to check it out.

  6. Lovely late summer outfit, I like the green tights, florals and the straw hat! Excellent work on your nails too, I'm too lazy to wear nail polish. 

  7. your nails are getting better and better.
