Marks & Spencer are Making Me Want Pyjammas with a Cape

Flicking through my inbox of PR emails this morning, this cosy selection of onesies and jim jams looked very appealing. Marks & Spencer have a great selection for the whole family, which can be ordered online and delivered for free to your local branch. Here are some of my favourite kids' pyjamas.

Jammies with a cape. A cape. You didn't know you wanted jammies with a cape until this morning, but now you do.

And yes, it's got a big, red, baboon bum.

Dr. Martens Want YOU To Busk At Their New Belfast Store

Iconic footwear and clothing brand Dr. Martens is calling for local musicians to ‘Busk for Belfast’ to celebrate the launch of its first standalone store in Northern Ireland.

Belfast in the 1970s and 80s saw Ulster punks adopt the Dr. Martens boot and its association with various subcultures from all generations continues today, showcased in the current #STANDFORSOMETHING campaign that champions real Docs wearers.

The newly opened Corn Market store is playing host to a week of celebrations of Belfast punk and alternative music, and buskers are being invited to perform outside of Dr. Martens from Monday 22 to Saturday 27 September.

Boot prints will mark the spot on Corn Market for musicians and artists to take it turns to play to the passing public, and a window display will encourage the audience to share photos and clips of their favourite busker using the hashtag #STANDFORSOMETHINGBELFAST.

People of Belfast are encouraged to stop and listen to the buskers outside the store, and share their favourite using #STANDFORSOMETHINGBELFAST on social media, to be in with a chance to WIN a pair of Docs.

Musicians can busk outside the store all day every day from Monday 22 to Saturday 27 September.

Back to Basics on The World of Kitsch

I've noticed my blog posts being more sparse this year, and definitely more product orientated, so I've decided to start throwing in the sort of blog post I started The World of Kitsch with. Proper kitsch products, collated by me, on my own without partnership with a brand. Perhaps it'll kick start my love of blogging again, as it's started to feel like a chore, especially as my health is poor right now and I'm tired as it is.

So, I'll start with the most well know kitsch artist, Tretchikoff. He of Green Lady fame, his print was sold widely through the western world in the sixties and seventies. Bizarrely I don't own a Tretchikoff myself. I have works of Louis Shabner and J H Lynch, but I've never found a real life Tretchikoff in a charity shop, and can't spare the £100 or so I would need to call one my own from eBay.  

Maybe I should go the whole hog like Red or Read's Wayne Hemmingway and just have a Tretchikoff wall!

Here is the late Amy Winehouse showing her love of the artist.

And the beautiful Lauren Laveren had the chance to be painted in Tretchikoff style. Very jealous.

For now I will have to stick to little soft furnishing touches of Tretch' round the house.

Or maybe I can be the Green Lady this Halloween?

Until I can afford my own picture mural wall anyway.
