hey! feel like i haven’t spoken to you guys in ages. that’s because our life has been turned upside down – we moved into our new house (where there is still no internet connection…) and i am officially nearing the end of my pregnancy. as in, our boy could come any day…

right now i’m just over 36 weeks pregnant and consequently not getting out of the house much. but i do browse Instagram – a lot. when i’m wide awake at 2am, when i’m lying on the couch with my swollen feet propped up on a pillow, when i’m in the…

above: kaleidoscope cloud blanket. forgive me, for i am not in my right mind. i am a broody, anxiously waiting mom-to-be. i can’t stop thinking about babies. our baby. we are only a month away from welcoming the little dude, so i’m awake at 2am googling “do i REALLY need a changing table?”…

lately i’ve been noticing some seriously cool badass rings around. the trend in the past few years has been towards fine, dainty jewellery – especially stacking rings (which i still and will always love). but recently i’ve been really drawn to the more chunky variety, maybe it’s because my fingers are so…

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…

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?

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…

Revival is a collaboration between illustrator Libby van der Ploeg and Brooklyn based shop Dusty Rose Vintage. the illustrated series depicts 10 inspiring women whose style and thinking has had a lasting influence on our culture; including Dolly Parton, Frida Kahlo, Audrey Hepburn, Debbie Harry, Bettie Page, Julia Child, Josephine Baker, Bjork, Joan…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
