Frances May has been one of my favourite shops since for always, so when i received the news that they were launching their very own Houseline i thought – “YES!!” there are six dresses in the collection (in a variety of colours and fabrics) and i honestly would wear every single one (it’s not often that i can look at an entire collection and think,”wow they would ALL really suit me.”) they all look so flattering…

hello! i feel like i owe you an explanation as to why the blog is so quiet these days. so, if you’re interested, read on – or just skip to the fun stuff while i get a little bit wordy. i temporarily shelved my working life during Axel’s first year, as we decided i would be his primary caregiver while Anton worked. it was both joyous and tough for me. to be able to spend so much time with him during such an important phase was a real privilege, but it also meant that i lost my grip on some parts of my life…

“oh, these are SO good. so good. sooooo gooooooood” – that’s what i said to myself, out loud, when i discovered the work of Renée Gouin. these minimal monotypes are totally up my alley. what is a monotype, you ask? as Renée explains, “these images are created through the application…

i remember my first live drawing class in university, up to that point i had been drawing all my life and didn’t think there was anything i couldn’t draw. but we had to look at the figure and draw without lifting our pencil from the paper – in one line.…

Carmen D’Apollonio is a multi-talented Swiss potter who moved to LA in 2014 to pursue her work in ceramics. she also co-founded Swiss fashion brand Ikou Tschuss. her sculptural lights are totally my bag – something i would want in my house, if i didn’t have a toddler who would undoubtedly…

Edouard Boubat – Cafe De Flore, Paris, 1953 hey friends! what’s happening? the most interesting thing i’ve done lately – which actually isn’t that interesting at all, but maybe you wanted to hear about it, is that i completed a Whole30. well, Anton and i both did. we are BIG…

look through this collection by New Zealand label Mahsa and tell me you don’t want to wear a blouse RIGHT NOW. designer Mahsa Willis previously worked as a film producer for 20 years before turning her sights to making classic, romantic pieces… Yesterday Modern 2 is a collection of light…

Bijou Karman is an artist & illustrator from LA. i love her paintings, which are mainly done with gouache. fun fact: she’s illustrated for Rihanna’s fashion line… so she’s very cool, as you can imagine. she currently has an exhibition of her work on in Portland, so if you’re lucky…

i want my coming weekend to look like this: have a fabulous party – or just hang out by myself – and leave behind beautiful debris to rival these scenes by Laura Letinsky. unfortunately Axel makes a mess all day long and it never looks as cool as this (and…

here are ten THINGS! one of my favourite voyeuristic things at the moment is seeing life through Jamie Beck’s eyes since she moved from NYC  to Provence. (do you guys remember her blog way back when it was hosted on Tumblr?). she visits old chateaus and shops at the local market and…
