Drizzle & Dip. Photography by Sam Linsell.

Drizzle & Dip

this week i wrapped up a new blog design for the wonderful local food stylist, recipe developer and food blogger Sam Linsell of Drizzle & Dip. Sam and i actually live in the same neighbourhood – we are known to bump into each other at our local woolworths (she once caught me there lingering in the cheese section). so it was a lovely project for me to work on, especially because i got to look at her food photography all day long. something which you shouldn’t do when you haven’t eaten, by the way.

Mid Week Distraction No. 15

Leslie Knope is front and centre as the featured image of this week’s distraction – because she is the best – but also because, sadly, Parks and Recreation is over. frankly i have referenced treat yo self far too many times on this blog to not dedicate an entire post to Parks & Rec, but this introductory paragraph will have to do.

Toast SS15

i’m so into everything at Toast right now, especially this awesome Early Spring collection. this is officially how i want to look all the time. how am i going to make this happen? i’m just going to try to look as sleepy as possible, as this is clearly the brief these models were given: pretend you’re coming out of a long hibernation. “wow it’s so beautiful out here in this sunny field / relaxing on this boat / gazing out at this historical European village, but i’m just SO sleepy you guys!”

Stripes

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.
