Amazing band names (with logos)

Here’s a fun selection of logos I’ve made over the years for fake bands that should have been- mostly inspired by bizarre inside jokes.

Heroin Parachuters was based on my misunderstanding of a MGMT lyric. Sonny and the Wailers is a hound and his band (if the universe is ever fair)


Cannot remember why this came about except that Rugby was involved. We toured the Southeast quite successfully in 2005


This was not intended to be a band, just a race team for GYN nurses. Still …..


Again, not a band, just a rib cooking contest




How tall is Carla Bruni?

IMG_4387I was perusing Tumblr and found a feed dedicated to this woman’s hair (Chantal Biya, First Lady of Cameroon). It is indeed majestic.

This, naturally, led me to find out more about these women, who look especially tall and fun. My phone was on ‘Australian English’ that week which I thought would be HILARIOUS ..until I needed something. Here’s my attempts.

Switched to American…got it in one

Stephanie’s Parisian Living Room


< I put this together for Stephanie, my Francophile, New York Chic Spanish friend who is moving into a new apartment in Miami. There are girly accents in the pink and grey pillows, countered by a basic Ikea sofa in classic beige. Dark but graphic rugs anchor all the pink, and a sheepskin rug adds warmth and texture. A desk with baroque lines and a delicate chandelier are hints to the decadence of Paris. The mirrored coffee table is chunky and stylish, and undoubtedly French.

A bright pink print of a paper-cut map of paris lends some local charm, next to 20×200 prints of Anna Wintour/Karl Lagerfeld and a collection of scooters. Accessories lend the final layer with a metal bicycle wall hanging and baskets that would be at home on your velo on the boulevard Ste Germain.

Enjoy Cherie!

London Wardrobe

As is my┬átradition, I love cataloging my vacation wardrobe. Trying all my intended outfits on beforehand just makes sense, and photographing them gives me a handy cheat sheet for the outfits I’ve chosen.

I’m going to be in London for 7 full days, Barcelona for 3, and there are nights out planned! So with this set, I have a ‘uniform’ of jeans and boots, mixed up with tops and 3 jackets. I should be all set to be comfy and stylish…unless it’s hot!


P.S. Sorry for the dopey facial expressions! I am no @becksdowling
