So how many times have you thought “I wish I lived in France!”? It’s the food, the wine, the good movies, the sexy underwear etc. right? And now, it’s also the supermarkets! Cause Monoprix has launched this line of private label products that is just to die for, it’s any type nerd’s wet dream! Just LOVING it! I think it was done by Cleo Charuet for Havas but it’s a bit tricky to figure out the exact order of things. By whoever it is: GREAT JOB!

I have a weakness for beauty products although I don’t really spend much time or money on them myself. I just really like the beautiful packaging! Like these ones from the Greek company Korres.

More Waitrose, they just know their stuff! I love the lettering on this line of products and it’s just so great to see a whole series carefully executed.

So a few bits of pieces from London coming up. One of the first things I always do in London is go to Waitrose and gush over all the great packaging design. Just check out thses two ranges of crisps I found.

JUST back from a wonderful trip to London, brimming with inspiration! Mailbox full though, so will throw you a quick bone today and will share more the coming week.

But for now I just have to show you something quite cute. I went to the Saatchi Gallery yesterday (again!) and if you haven’t been you should definitely go. There are so many great pieces there, but a small one that really blew me away was a series of photos by French artist/photographer Clarisse d’Arcimoles. Being fascinated with her family photo albums she decided the re-enact the situations years later. I just LOVE the one of her mother and sister in the bath, look how little the mother has changed!
