Mid Week Distraction No.4

guys. this feels weird to admit, but, i’ve been listening to 1989 a LOT. this coming from someone who never really knew what Taylor Swift was all about until this year – when i started seeing her pop up all over MY internets. of course she has been a mega star forever, but she never infiltrated my own happy internet bubble… until now. you only need to read How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love the T.Swift to understand.

Greta Van Campen

Greta Van Campen is an artist based in Portland, Maine whose graphic paintings are a thing of beauty. Greta works from her own photographs, deciding on large compositional elements and dynamic lines, then paints in layers and masks off entire areas or smaller details with washi tape as she goes along – filling in more detail. you can read more about her and her process here. it’s really cool to see how she paints plein air as well.

Fashion

OM-AW-MMXIV

these are not new, but i’ve decided that i’m not just going to just blog about stuff that’s breaking news. if i find it, and i love it, then i’ll share it. and that’s how i felt when i saw this campaign for LA based clothing line Objects Without Meaning featuring Miranda July. there’s even a video! and it was shot by July’s husband Mike Mills. so – you know, it’s all good.

Lately

so if you’re checking into the site itself and not reading via bloglovin or rss (or some other fancy way i don’t know about!) then you’ll notice things look a bit different around here! i have been wanting to change the look of the blog for a long time, as i feel like it’s been stuck in the same layout / rut for a good few years. mostly i was concerned with readability and page loads, as the blog is so incredibly image heavy it can be quite a strain on your browser.

Mid Week Distraction No.3

QUESTION * how do you guys consume your online content these days? i’m still a faithful RSS subscriber, even after Google Reader crashed and burned into the internet blackhole last year (i’ve been using Feedly ever since). i was having this conversation with a friend last night, who visits individual sites in his bookmarks – now that’s dedication.

Spaces Volume Two

when i was at university (in the early 2000s – holla!) the only real inspiration we got were from magazines and books, before the magic of the blog world exploded. i didn’t like many of the mags that were available to me, except for frankie magazine. they were hard to come by in south africa then. i used to scour the shops to come across that elusive copy and i still have all of them! so to say i have a soft spot for frankie is an understatement.

Lonely Lingerie

i really love independent lingeries labels because most of the time they showcase their wares on a variety of “normal” women. and by normal i mean any shape and size – not specifically thin, or specifically curvy, or specifically this or that. just any kind of woman, because there are a billion of us and we all look different. i appreciate this from any fashion line actually, not just lingerie. but when you see a model in her scivvies there is sometimes a certain feeling of, well, i don’t look like that in lingerie. you know? i know it’s an old discussion and i wish it wasn’t still such a THING. but i feel like things are progressing and it’s kind of cool!
