if you’ve been lucky enough to visit the Wild Coast in South Africa you might have come upon some super chill cows having a great day at the beach. it is always a delight for me to see the cows when we travel to Kei each year for our summer holidays, they even gate-crashed our engagement!
last week i posted this photo on Instagram without even thinking twice, which resulted in an unprecedented number of comments of women left and right chiming in that they, too, had this particular problem. i mean – we basically all want to look like French mimes, right? these aren’t even all the striped shirts i own you guys.
you might wonder how i find content for these (now pretty popular) mid week distractions. well, they are all articles, posts, images, features or music that have distracted me throughout the week. i don’t specifically look for content, but rather bookmark the stuff that actually took up 5, 10 or even 30 minutes of my time at any given moment. they aren’t called distractions for nothing. i can pretty much gauge the productivity of the past week by how long these posts are.
Reuben Wu is a photographer, music producer (ever heard of a little group called Ladytron? uuuh yeah!) and director who i discovered by way of flickr when his fantastical landscape imagery almost made my eyeballs explode into a cloud of star dust. i might have listened to this while looking through them. follow him on Instagram.
Marion Hanania is the designer & founder of vegan footwear brand Good Guys who i’ve featured many times around here. born and raised in Paris, Marion has been spending the past 6 months in California – a move which is truly reflected in her bright & sunny new SS15 collection. i looooove those colour block sandals!
i don’t know what it is with my recent obsession with sportswear. i am hopeless at sports and pretty useless at exercising, to boot. i recently attempted Kayla Itsines’ BBG and i managed one day. ONE day. but still, you know, i want to look COOL while i’m failing to exercise. and maybe a small part of me thinks that if i look great i’ll be more inclined to workout. isn’t that how it always goes? well perhaps i need to start listening to Outdoor Voices and get my ass into figurative – and literal – shape.
i broke my promise to bring you a music mix every month. and for that, i’m sorry. i hope this makes it up to you? x o x o happy friday the thirteenth / valentines day (whichever you choose to celebrate). just press play!
