Jorey Hurley

we won’t be doing a nursery initially, as the kiddo is just going to sleep in our room for the first few months. we would only just have moved into our new house by the time he arrives, so i’d want to figure out the space before settling on who sleeps where (needless to say he will…

Pins by Marianne Batlle

i’ve been marvelling at these beaded pins by French artist Marianne Batlle, not just because of how painstakingly detailed they are – but also the fact that you can actually recognise all the famous characters. how many can you identify?

Imaginary Curator: The Nude

TONY GUM, Milked in Africa – Half full, half empty, 2016. thanks so much for your enthusiastic response to my first Imaginary Curator post! today’s “show” is all about THE NUDE. i want to save these bums as my desktop background in case someone is ever spying on me working at some cafe. i can…

Yes, I could live in a Swedish Chapel

i’ve reached the stage now where i’m kind of hate-scrolling through these interior design websites that feature perfectly perfect all white Swedish apartments. you know the type? i used to love them. now i’m just like UGH get away from me! please can i see some more personality and colour! then this stupidly cute little…

Coyote Negro: Serie No. 2

in the past few years i have only worn gold or bronze jewellery, i don’t know why – i just went off silver after many years of wearing it. now, i feel like i may be swinging back to the lighter side… and no one can convince me more than designer Melissa Hernández who…

Lauren Tamaki Fashion Drawings

i’m at the stage now where i’d much rather look at people’s interpretations of the fashion shows than at the actual fashion shows themselves. that’s why i love these drawings by illustrator Lauren Tamaki, who lives and works in Brooklyn. incidentally Lauren’s illustration also accompanied one of my favourite recent articles in the NY Times, Why do…

MARCH

that’s me up there, navigating March like a tightrope walker. only 3 more weeks and i’ll be on maternity leave, we will move into our new house and soon after welcome the little guy. and, breathe… never mind all that, here’s a music mix! you can listen to it on Spotify or 8Tracks.

Imaginary Curator: The American West

i thought i’d try out a new series on the blog called Imaginary Curator. i look at a lot of art online as i’m always on the look out for something interesting to share with you, and often i see themes jumping out at me. basically, if i were to walk into a gallery or museum right now, what would i want to see? my first “show” (haha) is all kinds of art related to The American West, and i am blaming this totally on my recent watching of Lonesome Dove…

Bobo Choses: Der Blaue Reiter

i know i’m supposed to be imagining how cute my little dude would look in these duds, but truth is i want adult sizes please! Bobo Choses is a renowned Spanish brand of super cool kidswear, and their new exclusive SS16 range is inspired by artists like Matisse, Picasso and Hockney. you can shop online at their…

ModCloth Swim

back in the good old days before our currency tanked, and i could actually still shop online, i used to buy quite a lot of things from ModCloth. i’ve always liked the fact that they cater to women of all sizes, and i found so many of their dresses suited my curvier shape (i also…

Sabé Masson

i love the idea of solid perfume, mostly because i like having something in my bag that i can reapply during the day without accidentally spritzing some stranger in the face. that’s why i always have this with me – but i think it’s time to find something more substantially fragranced. Sabé Masson is a…

The 1975

The 1975 are a band from the UK whose latest album I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It was released last week. you may recognise their album covers, which feature the band’s name in a gorgeous neon sign (that is actually how i first came to notice them…

Hómini

Hómini is a jewellery line designed by two architect-trained sisters, Deborah & Dinorah Kaiser, who live in Montevideo, Uruguay. i love this lookbook so much because it reminds me of Tom & Jerry, or even this scene from Alice in Wonderland. a pretty surreal setting for such refined, minimalist jewellery. Hómini Studio was founded…
