Cool Camera Bags

I've been searching for a cool, stylish camera bag FOREVER. There is, it seems a huge, gaping gap in the market, because when it comes to camera bags. It's bulky rucksacks, grim looking man bags or nothing. 
My current bag is a classic Billingham Hadley. I settled on it because I couldn't find anything else that I remotely liked. Don't get me wrong, it's a great bag, but it's completely lacking in je ne sais quoi.

My Billingham has travelled the world with me, from Bangladesh to Thailand and New York to Niger with countless European stop overs along the way but Ive never felt totally at one with it.

In all honesty, I'd pretty much given up on my search and then today, I saw these...

I'm not sure how practical they are without seeing one in the flesh but HELLO! 

Part of this season's Agyness Deyn for Dr Martens collection they are inspired by one of Aggy's vintage camera bags. The Hawaiian design is made from canvas and the black bag from Inuck leather with felt patches.

Good job it's mothers day on Sunday...

Corners of my home : Kitsch

Inspired by my pal Kara, I bring you, the favourite corners of my home.

We've owned this awesome house for ten years this Easter, I don't know where the time has gone. I LOVE everything (except the crappy countryside internet) about my house. I can see myself growing happily old here. It's simply the home of my dreams.

The downstairs toilet is home to my ever decreasing small figure collection. My bad ass kitties have been intent on distraction of late and the window ledge collection is rapidly dwindling.

Kitsch cats

Our TV room is the one place that is virtually un-touched by my kitschy vintage eye, but Yan and Betty found this original Tretchikoff print in a high street charity store and it claimed a coveted spot in the the living room.


I adore this corner of my desk. It's packed with the kitschy things that I love. Blythe, Sonny Angel, Clarice Cliff, Woodland Dolls and random school made pottery objects. This corner is a true representation of me.

The opposite corner of my office plays home to a small collection of my Big Eye Prints. Leighton Jones, Gig, Fallarda, Dallas Jones et al. I'm quickly running out of wall space.

The upstairs hallway is also home to a large number of my Big Eye's. At last count I had over 300 and I'm running out of wall space! You can see more of my collection over on my GeekGoesVintage site.

Over the last few weeks, I've spent what little spare time I have painting our en suite. It's not quite finished yet (when it is, I promise a dedicated before and after post), but I am totally and utterly, head over heels in love with its new grey theme.

I'd love to see more people joining in with this theme so I'm tagging @Candy_pop and @Mim_Tweeta to share the corners of their homes but if you fancy getting on board please do so. Don't forget to tweet me @geekisnewchic with the link to your post, so that I can link to it.
