My latest addiction is Salvage. This past month TV is suddenly awash with Salvage programmes - from Seeking Salvage, American Pickers to my current favourite Salvage Hunters. Salvage Hunters documents Drew Pritchard - a UK based company selling fabulously British Salvage. I cannot tell you how excited I was to discover Drew's website packed full of gorgeousness with take your breath away, one of a kind pieces. It's great watching the guys in action on TV, however by the time the programme is aired the stock is already sold! I'll need a lottery win to get my hands on some of these lovely pieces, which are incidently still available to purchase! One to bookmark for sure.

We recently downloaded the very talented London born, Irish raised singer songwriter Maverick Sabre - with such a fantastic voice and meaningful lyrics, he's certainly one to watch! I love both these songs - 'I need' the latest single is out now. Give him the recognition he deserves and download it NOW! You can also check out his website for more details.
I've got a bit of a yellow 'thing' going on in my wardrobe at the moment which means that Marni's statement-making Lucite bib necklace is screaming 'buy me!' With colourful resin stones and brass tassels, it sure would elevate even the simplest outfit. This beautiful investment piece is available from Net-a-porter priced £340.
Currently doing the blog rounds is Therese Himmer's very sparkly, very bling sequin graffiti art. Very nice!
"I was interested in how these visual qualities also recall how landscapes respond to changes in wind and light. I moved from Denmark to Reykjavik in 2005 and the Series came as a response to my encounter with Icelandic nature and culture. In this context the sequins operate on dual levels. As they scintillate like water, ice or lava, they have an immediate visual and formal quality, which, in this framework, addresses the relationship between the natural and the artificial. Meanwhile, extracted from the commercial world, they serve as a critique of the increasing and disturbing commodification of Icelandic nature." Therese Himmer
