Lauren Winter is the talented lady behind formerly-known-as Etsy shop Blooming Leopold, which i have featured a couple of times on the blog. her label is now known simply as Lauren Winter – check out her wonderful new collection. but today i’d like to focus on the stylishness of Lauren herself, who is a talented DIYer and all-round creative person. she’s dyes her own fabric (!) and regularly shares some pretty kick-ass sewing projects over at Drifter & Gypsy. she also takes beautiful photographs! so be sure to add her to your blog roll, cause you’re gonna want to keep track.
these things issue no.14 – perhaps if i add an “issue” it will sound more fancy.
i might have reached the height of internet loserdom when i created yet another tumblr. this time it’s in order to bookmark interior inspiration. i’ve realised that tumblr is basically my version of pinterest (a site i could never get into, weirdly enough). so, take a gander at home is where the couch is if you want to look at rad interiors.
you may have noticed that it’s the beginning of the month and there is still no new music mix. i’ve decided to put them on the back burner for a little while. mostly because i’ve had no real inspiration for a new one lately and don’t want to just pull something out of thin air, but also because i am feeling kind of conflicted about sharing them to be honest*. i don’t know if this is the end of the music mixes… it probably isn’t because i enjoy making the cover art way too much and i also love sharing good music with everyone. you can still download all the old ones if you haven’t already.
i save a lot of things to my tumblr. a lot. it’s a means for me to bookmark things i love on my daily internet travels so i can remember to revisit them later, and also another great way to share cool finds with people. it mostly has a pretty fashion orientated bent… with quite a lot of photography thrown in for good measure. here’s some of my recent favourites.
i’ve been a reader of jessica’s blog the shiny squirrel for ages now. i tried to think back to how i discovered her… but my memory fails me, as per usual. in fact – jessica’s succint style of posting was the inspiration behind my these things posts. i’m constantly reblogging & tumblr’ing her finds as she shares such great things on a daily basis.
it’s easter weekend, which means that south africa kind of shuts down for a while. we have a long-long weekend ahead of us – i’ll be on holiday from tomorrow for 6 days. so, this is adiós till next week thursday!
i saw this on tara-lynn’s tumblr, and it has almost 50,000 reblogs so you may or may not have seen it already – but i really love it. you see these kind of things all the time, but i enjoyed the straight to the point + non-fussiness of this one. it’s not trying to be charming or clever or cute. this is just good non-froofy advice.
