Polyester meets acetate

We're super excited that the Brunettes are playing this Friday with Sarah Blasko.
If there were a facebook quiz called "What super cute NZ band is your shop?" We would definitely get the Brunettes. It's true! Other people think so too!

To get us in the mood here are a couple of my favorite tracks & a beautiful number from Sarah Blasko. Squee!

We love your blog

We read a lot of blogs here at the Swonderful headquarters. Some good, some bad and some so darn inspiring we have to blog about them ourselves! Color Me Katie is the kind of blog that puts a smile on your dial. Katie is a photographer living in NY with her boyfriend Matty & their cat Moo. She posts pictures of her work and the escapades she gets up to with her improv group Improv Everywhere. Their latest um, stunt(?) involved 2000 invisible dog leashes... what fun!

And here are some more examples of what Katie & Moo get up to...

Lula Love

We love Lula Magazine, it's right up there with Frankie & Peppermint. Unfortunately it can be a little hard to get hold of sometimes, but thanks to their new website you can now get a fix when a physical copy can't be found. Have a look at the sweet films on the website. We love the Miranda July one "Her Eyes are a Blue Million Miles" You'll love it too, and her dress! X
