After reading 'Just Kids' I fell head over heels for Patti Smith: her words, her music, her ethos and her spirit. Every step of her adult life has represented the importance of fighting for and expressing creativity. If you have a gift you have to share it but you also have to protect it. This video sees Patti talking about all of these things and life in general. These are wise words, for both young and old.

Frida Kahlo is an artist that has always fascinated me, partly because she only ever really painted self-portraits claiming that: "I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best". I am also drawn to her because of her very striking style. The other day I randomly decided to search photographs of her throughout her life and the results are beautiful and captivating. Definitely my latest style icon.
