Like A Dream

20 like a dream

hey, what’s this? a mid-week mini music mix – that’s what!

i don’t know what it is with this time of year, but these weird autumnal months before true winter arrives always fly past my eyes and feel… well… kind of dreamy. as if my brain has gone into a state of limbo thus causing me to hibernate in all areas of my life (including the blog, i do apologise for the state of things around here lately). consequently the daily soundtrack has been one of fuzzy contemplation. nothing too loud, nothing too upbeat. i kind of just want to switch off my computer, drink something warm and curl up on the couch.  maybe have a cuddle. read a book. sleep.

Environments

Environments is a book of photographs documenting studio spaces of eleven creative people, most of them working in and around Melbourne. the photography is by the talented Olga Bennett with interviews by Sarah Caldwell. you can buy the book here along with beautiful prints of the individual spaces.

To Be Adored

BinBin McNiven delivers Edwardian inspired sophistication combined with a fun Sixties aesthetic, throughout her label To Be Adored. Stand-out dresses, tailored trousers and unique separates are brought to life with feminine detailing, in opulent silk and velvet finishes.

Mamma’s Day

it’s mother’s day here on sunday. my mom is on a photography trip on the other side of the world where she will be gallivanting through the english countryside, so there will be no chance for me to lavish her with flowers and cups of tea. my mom doesn’t like eating sweet things – so no cake for mother’s day (i did not inherit that trait unfortunately.) we’ve recently had to overcome some difficulties as a family so mother’s day feels very significant to me this year. i feel that way more and more each day with my family.
