Frankie Sunshine

I would like to share a little story about where the name Frankie Sunshine came from.
A long time ago I came across a breed of pig that only grows to the size of a small dog, a miniture pig. I instantly became absolutely positive that as soon as I owned my own home I would get myself a miniture piglet as my pet. Why? they are adorable, you can walk them just like a dog, they become your little friend without the fur, they come in lots and lots of different colours and well why not! This little piglet was to be named Frankie Sunshine and he or she was going to be my very best friend I was sure of it.
Anyway the time came and we found the perfect home, we got busy renovating and when our little palace was ready for one more I got talked into getting a puppy instead. An adorable puppy and one I would never swap for a cute as a button piglet now of course but I could not give my little puppy the name that was destined for a mini piglet of course so Zali Sunshine was named and when I had the brilliant idea of starting a blog to store all the inspiring things I came across the name Frankie Sunshine was fitting, as time went on and I developed my shop it was only natural that it was given the same name and so while I do not have a tiny pig sitting at my feet, I do have a blog that I love, a puppy I adore and I am still trying to convince the boy that there is room for one more.

bicycle love

For Christmas we got bikes and I think this would have to be my favourite Chrissy gift of all time. Yes I was given bikes when I was little, I remember a cute pink & purple one with training wheels and streamers flowing from the handle bars and a brilliant red mountain bike when I was a bit bigger, but growing up we lived in hilly terrain and riding was always very very good exercise. So this years bike has come at a time when I live in a pretty flat area and it is so so so much fun to get on and head off on an adventure. 2011 has turned out to be the 'year to ride' and I just love it.
I am wearing Raphaella mesh oversized tee available here on sale  for some ridiculously low price, black slip I have had forever, 2 tone leather boots I had made, bag bought in Vietnam, Nixon watch, Frankie Sunshine Vintage Brass necklace  & YSL ring.
