Snap! A brick coloured, cotton pullover from T by Alexander Wang is headed my way!
A home made dress (featuring ric rac straps) reserved for days above 29C (see you next year), some old and favored glitter Miu Miu’s and a batch of cookies
The best new biscuit base in Tuba’s house, from Ottolenghi, The Cookbook
I have used this recipe for many different variations – you may think the recipe doesn’t actually work,
but I love the thin, moist and chewy biscuit that results!! They are especially nice to eat with vanilla ice cream as ice cream sandwiches!
Dries Van Noten dress – uh YES PLEASE! It just screams Nasturtiums,
me wanteeee all three!
Nasturtiums by my beloved Aunty Belinda Black
Although Tuba has always loved flowers, she is absolutely inspired by The wonderful Flower Drum
and has decided to show you her flower arrangements!
It will mostly consist of “how to make $10 and under flowers look better”
I love you and your crazy outfits!
In the spirit of Los Angeles christmas a red and white collage… Featuring Tuba’s number one (and two) christmas present item (s), Fredéric Malle, Un Gardenia la Nuit candle and Carnel Flower Parfum – amazing! The candle is the closest thing to Gardenia we have ever smelt… Luckily for Tuba, she don’t have to fork out the $ for the candle as it’s Gardenia season at home!
The Carnal Flower Parfum was inspired by California’s delicious Tuberose and Gardenia desert aroma and the muse was apparently Candice Bergen… Frederic Malle’s aunt?
