Maybe it's because my denial of all things tobacco is beginning to waver, maybe it's because I am thinking about locks and doors so much these days, but Margot Tennenbaum is definitely my pin up for April.

She has a touch of Holly Golightly who ran away from her hick family and old man husband. Like Holly she has disasterous mood swings and a uniform. She is ten times as secretive and duplicitous as most femme fatales and is desired by not one but two Wilson brothers. She ran away to the museum and kissed her adoptive brother, she somehow managed to get married to and divorced from Bill Murray.

In her honour I will be smoking (in secret), chaining my television to the wall, and watching it in the bath.

I will also listen to this amazing Margot mix tape on repeat.
