Things that are making me smile this Sunday…
I’ve recently been trying to get back into baking and cooking food from scratch when I can around work. Today I made a carrot cake from Lorraine Pascale’s ‘Baking Made Easy’ and I can’t wait to try it.
Climate Week at Annie Greenabelle
In support of Climate Week 2013 (4-10 March), ethical fashion brand Annie Greenabelle will be offering 25% off their carbon friendly range. The various elements of the production of their organic cotton jersey range all take place within 20 miles of their HQ in order to be friendly to the environment.

The Nu Project
The Nu Project is a project which was started back in 2005 by photographer Matt Blum, and features a collection of nude portraits of women from all over the world following a brief of no professional models, minimal makeup and no glamour shots. Blum credits his wife Katy, who is now editor of the project, with helping to create project in its current state.
To date, over 150 women have participate in the project and they are mostly photographed in their own homes. This allows a really relaxed and natural feeling to the images. The images are beautiful and feature so many different women that it is truly refreshing and I love that Matt refers to the images as ‘honest’ nudes, and stays away from the dreaded ‘normal’.
For more info and to see Matt’s photos vist thenuproject.com (and just in case you haven’t guessed, this site contains nudity so you may not want to open the link in work).
Happy Sunday …
