Pedal in Style - Beg Bicycles

I really, really (really) want one of these bikes. They are hand built exclusively by a Belgian bicycle making family and owe their aesthetic to traditional sit up and beg vintage bicycles.

Sunny day in London + Beg Bike + Fortnum and Mason Picnic Hamper + Rendezvous in the park = FabuloCity

Spring Time In London & Cath Kidston For Uniqlo Charity Tee Shirts

It's offiically Springtime and the sun has got his hat on in London Town. We all know what that means - time to start wearing t-shirts, flip flops and sunglasses (even though it's still freezing cold and the sun has most likely disappeared again by the time we've fished our sunnies out). Anyway, to help us walk prettily along the road to hypothermia, Uniqlo have teamed up with Cath Kidston to produce a range of tees. The collection redefines popular Cath Kidston classic prints through Uniqlo printing techniques and re-images them in vintage-fashion colours and a bleached antique look.

The proceeds help raise funds for the Japanese Organization for International Cooperation in Family Planning (JOICFP) - a charitable non-governmental organization. Cath Kidston and Uniqlo will also make donations from the net proceeds of sales to fund an initiative supporting a safe motherhood program in Zambia.

I have my eye on these:

£12.99 each - available instore and online.
