Mara & Maria

i had a bit of a scare this weekend, the blog was down for more almost two days and i didn’t know how to fix it. it’s terrible feeling so helpless, but above all i was really worried that three years of fun and radness was going to disappear forever into the depths of the internet blackhole. luckily Jason came to my rescue – a guy who knows his web stuff, so if you ever need help in that department give him a call.

while i sat at my computer hitting refresh over and over and over, willing the blog to come back to life, i thought about what i would do if i was ever faced with the prospect of writing my last post… a last meal of sorts. and over the years nothing has made me happier than a good ol’ colour comparison. so that’s the first thing i did when i sat down at my computer this morning.

new york fashion week has been all over the blogs, twitter, instagram – and probably my favourite show out of the very many lovely collections was Mara Hoffman’s Spring 2013 collection. something about Mara’s symmetrical prints and bright palette reminds me of the colourful work of Ukrainian folk artist & decorative painter Maria Primachenko.

    I checked in at least 15 times this weekend to see if you had posted anything new; know you would be dearly missed for your blog disappear into the ether. Thankful for your regular divine bits of inspiration! Love from Arizona.
