Kid, you're destined for stardom, big city, bright lights, you'll probably never even remember that you used to draw all over the family pet when you're famous and the whole world is at your feet and you're like King Midas and everything you touch turns to gold. When in doubt you'll just get your crayolas out.

As a kid i was obsessed with drawing, i drew on everything, i would draw all over the walls of my aunties and uncles houses, all over their flocked wallpaper.... as well as my parents walls at home. I was crafty back then, I would draw under picture frames and under the hanging photo's of all of us kids in our school uniforms. 

One day as i was having a particularly good time scribbling sweet nothings with a blue marker in the gap between the grandfather clock and the stairs, my dad caught me red handed and let out a roar 'to stop drawing all over the fucking walls'.

I got such a fright i laid off the wall drawing for ages but i got itchy about it, fingers got twitchy and so one balmy summers evening i climbed up on top of the 6ft high wardrobe in my bedroom and drew all over the ceiling. My mum walked into the room clocked me mid doodle and was like "Jesus Christ I cannot believe this Celestine, i'm getting your father'. My response was 'this is not a wall' whereupon the old animal instincts and i jumped off the top of the wardrobe and  knocked myself clean unconscious.

The next thing i remember is my dad holding up 3 fingers and saying how many fingers am i holding up Celestine?' and me saying 'oh for gods sake...6 fingers, i can see 6, is this a dream?'

My poesy and the Meadham Kirchhoff painted and glittered jamjar vase they came in from the Topshop secret store party on wednesday evening. Poesy and Jesus look great together dontcha think, they go together like bread and butter....

...... just like Ben and Ed the Meadham Kirchhoff boys who gave a great interview in this issue of Twin and Nick Dorey took this picture of them that i love.

So i was searching for a picture of the white Supreme box logo/Birken bag that i saw on someone's arm in a photo at a party.... and the only ones i could find had lady gaga in them but every cloud has a silver lining cos i did find this awesome picture of Jane Birken with her namesake birken bag and her rad dog. How cool is she!

Rodarte Feature I worked on for Twin IV with photographer Ben Toms, lots of birds including the beautiful and cool Sara Blomqvist. It was a great day we got to meet all of the feathered beauties here and at the ned of the day we all got to hold the eagle who was about the same weight as a can of stella, you would have thought he weighed a tonne but i guess that's where the saying 'light as a feather'  comes from. Raj, the little grumpy looking one with the orange eyes almost had a part on harry Potter, he was trained to turn the pages on a book for the film so he's the mini celeb with buckets of attitude there at the sanctuary, he won many hearts this day. Among other highlights i was transfixed by the sight of Elsa the owl mercilessly chowing down on a (pre-dead) baby chick. Fascinating and barbaric (they are predators after all) it deserves a post all of it's own. Big thanks go out to Randall the head falconer who was the hostess with mostess on the day. www.countrywidefalconry.co.uk
