Rad Photo & Write Up


Before my opening the other night, I told myself a dozen times to make sure to get photos on the night – and if nothing else – of my outfit! Ha – priorities! Of course once the party kicked off I was so busy scurrying around from person to person, mingling, checking the music, making sure the vids were playing, etc; that like always – I forgot! I even tried to take a selfie in the downstairs toilets but they didn’t turn out. Then right near the end of the night I happened to meet a photographer named Nathan Thomas Jones – who asked could he take my pic and directed me in the middle of London Road for a very dramatic shot! Also the one above – I’m standing infront of the Co-Op Supermarket with the Dallas Fried chicken reflecting on the windows – drama! Anyhoo, click the pic or here to see his other amazing shot and write up – Thanx Nathan! More soon oxo gd

Grande Dame Sportswear, Houseware and More!


Ladies & Gentleman! I am very excited to debut my line of printed EVERYTHING! Well pretty much everything – Ha!

For ages I have seen various sites where you can have your designs printed on pillow or iphone cases, but I wasn’t interested in either.

Then one day I started thinking – I would like to make my own leggings – and through the magic of google I found the site RageOn. Not only do they print on leggings, but drawstring pants, boxers, yoga pants, socks, high tops, low tops, sweatshirts, tanks, dresses, hoodies, duvet covers, towels, blankets, t shirts and so much more!

And it’s totally affordable! Prices start at $8 for ankle socks and go up to $100 for a Duvet cover! Wow! Unlike fast fashion, where they make tons of articles of clothing – this is made to order, so no waste! Yay!

It’s produced in the States and Eastern Europe. And it’s a 25 day turn around.
There are so many items – literally something for everyone and I want one of everything! Seriously dying!

OMG! WANT! No – NEED! So click any of the gifs or here to get to my shop. At first you see a series of hoodies, if you click on any, at the bottom of each pic you can scroll through all the different products!

Everything looks SO LUSH! It was difficult to choose what images to make gifs of. These are just a few of my faves, but there are dresses, shower curtains – even fleece blankets! Tons of items! So Perfect for Xmas! So get ordering so I can get some outfits PLEEZE! Happy Shopping! oxo gd

Happy 2 Year Anniversary To Me!

Wow it’s been 2 whole years since I literally fled The Big Smoke and made my way to the quiet seaside. A move, as I mentioned before that I was not 100% on… But what wonderful changes it has brought into my life. I have a great group of friends and am making new ones everyday! I still miss my London family too tho! Being here has allowed me to have the space and affordability to pursue and experiment with other artistic channels and mediums. Living right on the sea & horizon is very calming, not just for me but for my fur babies too! And yes, I am as in love with this wonderful flat today as I was 2 years ago! It is my little piece of heaven on earth. Like living in a fantasy world, except it’s not a fantasy – it’s my life! I am so blessed! Thank you Universe! oxo gd
