Ife family, Watford

This is a series of family photos taken by a Mr.E.A. Ife, mostly in the 1920s. They lived in Cassio Road, Watford, and Mr. Ife ran the ‘Post Office Savings Club Photographic Society’ from there. a simply amazing set of photos from the collection of Mike / Abaraphobia all photographs…

These Things No.18

a pretty hefty edition of these things – this past week (and a bit) i actually bookmarked stuff i had seen & liked instead of relying on my terrible memory to pull my favourite internet things from the depths of my brain. in the hall with a candlestick: an editorial…

Valentino Fall Couture 2011

what i find pretty strange is that i’m often labelled as a fashion blogger – something i have never called myself. i don’t pretend to know anything about fashion, my knowledge of what goes on in the industry is on par with any other girl (or guy) that occasionally buys vogue or…

Found, but not lost.

this past week has been pretty weird – my car was broken into, some of my favourite things were stolen and i’ve been wrestling with an irritating head cold that has overstayed its welcome. but, you know, it’s just a shitty time that will be quickly forgotten and supplanted in my memory…

Wanted this Week on Pennyweight

Elise from Pennyweight (very cool blog, be sure to check it out) asked me to contribute a Wanted This Week list. i love wishlists and i especially love collages – so obviously i couldn’t resist & started making one right away. go check out the post & the listed items over…

Milleneufcentquatrevingtquatre

i was recently given a beautifully designed scarf as a gift, which i am tempted to have framed because the design itself is far more interesting to me than actually wearing the scarf. now i’m having second thoughts after seeing these silk scarves designed by textile designers Amélie Charroin & Marie…

Revu.

I am loving Revu. Revu. was born out of an encounter between two personalities and two creative worlds. Laetitia Hotte is a French photographer with a sharp eye and a passion for the vivid stories captured by images, while Sara Eriksson is a Swedish fashion designer, a stylist and a master of…

These Things No.17

these things issue no.17 Kinfolk Magazine launched last week. it is WOW: did some guest blogging over at lucky magazine last week on colour. see this post for the items: can’t stop listening to somebody that i used to know by gotye: really enjoying this tumblr – brown dress with white dots Prada Resort…

The Comparisons Project: Cracks

Hila picked Cracks for our next comparisons project – a film I have been meaning to watch for ages but just never got round to. i actually find myself watching less and less films these days, as any available tv time is dedicated to my series addiction (cough game of thrones cough).…

Isabella Connelley

Isabella Connelley is a very talented young (and i mean young) photographer. i’m sixteen and i live in sydney australia. I started taking photos when I was offered dark room photography at school and ever since I have been in love with photography of all kinds. I love how images can take…

Back to school

there was a time in my life when shopping for stationery was basically the most exciting thing i could think of. nagging my mom to buy me a new pencil case – “i can’t have the same pencil case as last year!” – and then covering it in all manner…

Belle Été

crikey, Anja Louise Verdugo is one mega talented gal! completely entranced by her latest shoot – Belle Été This summer editorial is something I’ve been working on for a while, it all started with the discovery of an awesome old historic house on Sauvie Island. It is empty now, which made it a perfect…

Familia

hila has been sharing some great old family photos lately, so i couldn’t resist dipping into my own collection. some background info: i have three older brothers. i’ll refer to them as brothers no. 1, 2 & 3 – because it’s easier that way. mom as a tyke: dad as…
