Beatenberg

couldn’t find a great pic of them so i just made this up continuing with my music sharing, i thought i’d introduce you to Beatenberg – a band from good ol’ Cape Town, South Africa. if you’re a local you have probably heard of these guys and may have been…

Japanese Love Story

as many of you know i love browsing through the life image archives. usually i have no real goal – just sniffing around, digging until i find something great to share with you. since it’s Valentine’s Day i thought this collection of photographs called Japanese Love Story by John Dominis was…

We need to talk about Marni

did you see the marni pre-fall 2012 collection? i feel like this was swept under the rug a bit, or perhaps i wasn’t paying attention (probably the latter) – but this is one crazy collection. when i browsed through the different looks i felt like i was meeting someone’s eccentric…

First Aid Kit

i thought i’d try to talk about music more regularly on here, instead of just resorting to the music mixes every month. here’s someone you need to listen to – First Aid Kit. their new album The Lion’s Roar was released a couple of weeks ago. these photos were taken by Neil Krug, a fantastic photographer…

The Missed Connections of Sophie Blackall

i watched this Etsy interview with illustrator Sophie Blackall over a cup of coffee this morning and it left me feeling so incredibly happy and warm. she has such a wonderfully inviting and serene way of talking about her work… “i like drawing animals, but i’m ashamed to say i almost…

Mother

i spotted a shot from the Mother collection on Pinterest – uncredited, of course, grrrrr – but it wasn’t until this post on Style Bubble that i learned that this is the new range from Yokoo (of hand-knitted scarves and accessories fame). Mother stems from the desire to rid the…

Joe Brainard: Poem (1971) Aram Saroyan: Electric poems (1972) David Foster Wallace: Infinite Jest (1996) Bertol Brecht: Im Dickicht…

Kinfolk

FYI: i put the blog on facebook yesterday – i don’t use it much myself (i much prefer twitter for general internet gabbing & sharing) – but i can’t ignore the fact that for many people it is their choice platform for staying in touch with blogs / companies/ artists…

These Things No.34

first of all i have to thank everyone for the overhwelmingly awesome response to the Food & Fashion mash up. the popularity of the colour comparisons surprises me every single time. i need to find a way to do this for a living. so i’ve decided to do these things…

Food & Fashion

get ready for an entirely nonsensical post combining my love for food and fashion. outfits good enough to eat? food good enough to… um… wear? no matter! just enjoy it for what it is. rosemary & walnut crepes /  paris x3 egg & avo sandwich / glamcanyon dinner in brooklyn / style sightings annabel…
