take ivy

for a while there i was a bit obsessed with menswear blogs. perhaps that is the wrong term for them. men’s things blogs? you know – jjjjound, them thangs, haw-lin… i had to downscale my subscription to these manly pursuits because i am a lady, after all. not really – there are just too many pictures to keep up with.

adam simpson & the baftas

i don’t know how i hadn’t seen these until now. adam simpson was commissioned to do an interpretation of the five best film nominees for the brochure artwork of this year’s BAFTAS (which was on 13 february) – um, WOW!

Kate: Things I like right now

kate is another cool local who i know through twitter and the relatively small but quickly expanding cape town blogging community. she has a new venture called the rah rah room that you capetonians should definitely check out, hand picked vintage & international high street labels available to browse & buy from the comfort of her lounge (champagne included.)

Formative Years

i have always been a music lover. i would often sit in the living room on my parents’ brown corduroy couches (yeah) listening to their old records and cds. when my older brothers weren’t around i’d sneak into their bedrooms and sample hits from the eighties (a-ha is still a favourite.)
