Out and about in Manchester

28/01/2012

Today the sun was shining in Manchester, a rare treat for us so we decided to hop on a tram into town. Work has been keeping me pretty busy lately so I felt I deserved a day of fun treats as a nice reward. One of my favourite spots in Manchester is Spinningfield, it always seems to be calm and peaceful even when the rest of Manchester is crazy busy. Most of the buildings are shiny and new but it's nice to find an old building hiding amongst them like this 1950's court house. We stopped for lunch at the Oast House which never fails to lure me in with it's rotisserie chickens served with delicious chips!

Dreaming of the Big Sur

24/01/2012

I know it's a while since our California trip but I never quite managed to post any of the hundreds of photos I took. Since the weather is so icky here and not ideal for photography I thought it was the right time to trickle a few highlights from our holiday to remind me of the amazing places we visited. These were taken on the final morning of our trip to the Big Sur, the rugged scenery was breathtaking (especially at dawn).

A Bird a day with Carrie

09/01/2012

I don't think it's any secret that I'm a tad smitten with this lady, her blog wishwishwish has given me endless inspiration over the years so it's always exciting to see her in a Nadinoo. Carrie has such a fun approach to styling her daily wears that you can't help but also feel a little bright hat is needed to make you and your outfit smile :) 
I'm so happy Carrie got a chance to wear her Bird a day dress over the holidays, an early morning stroll feeding the ducks is just what I had in mind when designing this dress.

Sounds of the woods photos

03/01/2012

While shooting our little film Sounds of the Woods with Carrie I couldn't resist taking a few photos, especially as Rosalind was looking soo cute! I have to confess Pixie was my favourite character in the film.. I think it's because Pixie is so similar to Roz that everything seemed so natural. Rosalind also posted about her experience shooting this film for us if you care to read..
