the two daniels

Tuesday, 18 November 2014

daniel wellington watch*, daniel footwear shoes*, monki trousers, rimmel soul session nail varnish.

It's time to welcome two timeless (pardon the pun) pieces to my wardrobe. Step forward Daniel Footwear and Daniel Wellington, my two new favourite men that my boyfriend needn't worry about. After the ladies counterpart served a hefty three year sentence on my wrist this menswear piece provides a sturdy alternative without swamping the wrist. I have a sneaky suspicion you may be seeing a lot of these two pieces in the future. The team at Daniel Wellington have been kind enough to offer 15% off their full collection when you use the code 'iamcharlottemartin' at checkout up until November 30th.

zara pointed boot

zara boots.

Who knew that a shoe could evoke such feelings of lust? Well, me apparently. If there was ever a time to run screaming to the checkout that time would be now. I've made a conscious decision to invest in items and these black pointed boots couldn't have came at a better time. You can find them here.

daniel buren at the baltic, ends 12th october.

On the South bank of the River Tyne and in my hometown of Gateshead sits the Baltic Centre of Contemporary Art. A former flour mill boasting large open exhibition spaces, clean lines and a strong design aesthetic especially for the graphic enthusiasts the Baltic plays host to a range of ever changing events and exhibitions all under one roof. Here are a quick two photos from the Daniel Buren exhibition which runs over two floors and features 'works in situ' displaying Buren's innovative use of light and colour.

Is blog a four letter word? It's safe to say that 2014 has definitely been the year I became disillusioned with blogging. Somewhere between my final year at University, a lack of inspiration and a few experiments with some other micro blogging sites my blog pretty much became stagnant. A graduation, a move back up North and eight months later I've got to admit I've missed blogging and I'm looking forward to having one place to store my brain overflow again. As usual I'll largely be posting about style with the occasional lifestyle or beuaty post but I'd love to know your feedback and any content ideas which you can let me know over here. Keep up to date with any posts over on Bloglovin' and remember you can follow me over on Twitter and Instagram in the time being. Less of the plugs, feels nice to be back.
