COVET: Alice Tait’s map prints, £17.99 (print only) £89.99 (framed) – I love the Paris print!
EAT: Namaste Kitchen, 64 Parkway, Camden, NW1 7AH – Modern Indian beautifully presented at a very reasonable price. Delicious food and with an open grill in the back the aroma will have you wanting everything on the menu!
DO: Lichtenstein: A Retrospective – an exhibition at the Tate Modern, open now and closes 27th May
WATCH: “Untouchable” (“The Intouchables”) – A delightful French comedy (yes, you heard me right. French comedy!) about an unlikely pair – a quadriplegic aristocrat who was injured in a paragliding accident and a young man from the projects. At times sentimental but will have you laughing all the way through from the opening scene. You will not want it to end.

I personally think that the digital age of photography let’s us take our photographic moments for granted and therefore we never think to print them anymore. I have so many empty photo frames and wall space that I have now decided to be more diligent and display the photos I love at home, not just on Facebook where they’ll be forgotten. StickyGrams are fun ingenious ways to bring to life some of the Instagrams you love (or ones you thought were so artsy!). They are cute little magnets about 5cm x 5cm and are printed in sheets of 9 with your choice of your Instagrams. $14.99 (about £10) and shipped within 24hrs for free worldwide, can’t be simpler!
If like me you want to start printing your favourite iPhone or Instagram photos, i use Pixum who offer a huge range of printing needs. There are many online photo printers but I find Pixum so easy to use, fast and more importantly they print square pictures!

My favourite lip colour for this winter! Its very wearable and goes on as a pinkish raspberry shade. Keep the rest of your make up neutral and apply straight from the bullet then blot lightly with a tissue to take the edge off a little.
