Florence and the Machine
I absolutely never tire of listening to Florence. And every time I watch her, I'm captivated by her amazing voice and consider dying my hair auburn. Oh, and she wears amazingly beautiful vintage clothes.
Emmy the Great
I discovered Emmy when some of her music appeared on our system at work - and then by happy chance, ended up contributing an illustration of her to Amelias Magazine for a review of her new album.
Au Revoir Simone
This remains one of my favourite songs, and always gets me singing, even when I'm in the depths of an almighty pregnancy-grump. I love the fact that it's a little bit electro, but not in the same way that makes you feel like you should be in a club, waving a glo-stick in the air. *shuffles off to fetch zimmer frame*
My current favourite song, also found on the system at work, hurrah. For some reason, it reminds me of when I was traveling and living in New Zealand, which is peculiar as it obviously wasn't even written then!
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
A permanent favourite, and almost never off of repeat - 'Home' makes me want to wear sundresses and go and live in the deep South. Lush.
I've also been torturing myself with the People Tree sale, and lamenting the loss of my waistline. I have a hate-hate relationship with maternity clothes (the expense, the fabrics, the sheer ugliness of them....) and keep trying to find ways of wearing my own clothes without looking like I might explode out of them at any moment. (Watch out! She's going to blow!) If I had the money (and wasn't smuggling a bowling ball) I would almost certainly buy these pretties:
|Orla Kiely, how I do I love thee? Let me count the ways.....|
Also, if you loathe Topshop as much as I do (loud music, young people pushing and shoving, overpriced clothes that don't last, terrible customer service), be sure to read this article - make sure you click on all the links as well.
