Girl envy

Ok, ok, I know it isn't seemly to be jealous of other girls who are younger, prettier, more talented and it most certainly does not sit easily with my the Riot Grrrl in me, however....following Sandra Beijer of niotillfem has unfortunately unleashed my pesky green-eyed monster.

Sandra's blog which documents her fabulous lifestyle in Stockholm and her frequent trips to Paris and New York is at times breathtaking. This picture of her and her man-friend pretty much sums up the cheeky 50s french film splendour of it all:

Sandra's delightful blog header was created by another talented lady, Caitlin Shearer. Her exquisite illustrations can be found at her blog Caitlin Quiet.
While i'm on the subject of girl envy, it seems appropriate to feature some of her creations of gorgeous godesses.

I'm not certain but I think it's ok to envy a girl if she's a drawing. Isn't it?


  1. I am totally with you on this one, Sandra is like a living doll in a beautiful film. And that man of hers... well he is a dreamboat.
    And yes, when I die, I would like to come back as a Shearer girl! xxx

  2. One of my favourite blogs, and if you read her Q & As (she does them every so often) she's not only super-sweet but a proper feminist too, which might please your riot grrl side?

    Love Caitlin too; it's because of her that I sleep beneath a trio of dishevelled sexy ladies!
