Last night S and I went to see Indialucia - a fusion band mixing flamenco guitar with Indian classical instruments. They were brilliant! If you're in London they've got 2 more evenings of gigs tonight and tomorrow night at Djanogly Concert Pitch, Lyttleton Theatre Foyer, South Bank at 5.45pm. Definitely worth seeing if you can make it!

My favourite magazine - my fix of Australian creativity - arrived on my doorstep this morning. I have to admit I wasn't particularly gripped by the last issue, but as soon as I saw the cover of the November-December issue of Inside Out magazine I knew it was going to be right up my street. The magazine's new editor, Richard Waller, expresses his love of creativity in his first Editor's Letter. This is what first attracted me to this mag: the pages filled with creative people's homes, lives and creations, whether they be artists writers, stylists or photographers - it is so inspiring to flick through the pages, find a feature and dig in... and this issue's full of what I love - beauty and creativity!

Yesterday I received an email about Kim Parker's updated website with many new paintings added to her amazing collection of work. Here are my favourites from her acrylic on canvas range (who would have thought acrylic could look so good?)!
