London Calling

I've been searching for ideas to redecorate my room into more of a loft-style. My current inspiration is coming from that of Alexa Chung and numerous interior design sites, along with an older Punk Playlist that my history teacher made me.

LOVE the Union Jack bedspread and the brick walls. Envisioning having slabs of brick (it's like reallllllly thick wallpaper-esque poster boards) on a few of my walls and then having the others painted a color complementing the brick. Not sure what it would be though? Seems as though almost anything looks good with it. Then getting a futon/couch and probably getting a Union Jack blanket/throw. Then replacing my light/fan with a chandelier of sorts.. but make it look like a London lamp (post?)

 Still in the process of figuring out what I want to do.. but I'm obsessed with this poster!

This poster was printed, along with 2 other like ones with reassuring messages, right after WWII. The King wanted to encourage and improve the overall morale of the British citizens and had masses of these printed. They eventually deteriorated and were forgotten about, until several years back when a book-keeper found some of the only remaining prints that had survived in an auction. The revival of these posters have been inspiration to many ad campaigns and now serve as a decorative piece to many.

*I watched Pirate Radio last night, a movie loosely based about the illegal rock/pop radio station that broadcasted off an old fishing boat on the coast of England in the 1960's. The story was extremely moving and I had tears by the end of the movie.. but the costuming was IMPECCABLE. Every woman that sailed out to visit the Radio DJ's was dressed to perfection and looked like a pin up model for Andy Warhol.

OH, and the lead role is a GOD. Meet Tom Sturridge and Talulah Riley.

MOVING ON! Fashion inspiration is loosely stemmed from that of British rock & roll/60's mod pop culture




 Props to Michelle Elizabeth of for a bunch of the previous images. Check her blog out, it's ALL 60's mod fashion/art/culture, and it's pure bliss.

I usually do not leave a comment, but I browsed a
few of the responses on this page "London Calling".
I do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind.
Could it be only me or does it look like like a few of the remarks
look like they are coming from brain dead visitors?
:-P And, if you are writing at other sites, I'd like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of your public sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

Hey! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I needed to ask.
Does operating a well-established website such as yours require
a large amount of work? I am completely new to blogging but I do write in my diary daily.
I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

Currently it seems like Wordpress is the best blogging platform available right now.
(from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.

P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

It's actually very complicated in this active life to listen news on Television, thus I just use internet for that purpose, and take the hottest information.
