Bon, who i have featured a few times around here, collaborated with Tucson based vintage shop Desert Vintage in a fun Spring 2015 lookbook photographed by Krysta Jabczenski. it makes me want to grab all my gal pals and run off into the desert for a stupidly fun weekend.
if you follow me on Instagram you may have caught some photos that i was sharing from my mom’s photography trip to Morocco. she first picked up a camera in her fifties and started taking photos with slide film, then eventually transitioned to digital. she now regularly goes on photography trips with her friends, most recently to Morocco – but she’s also been to Cuba, Bhutan, Turkey, Canada and all over Europe.
hopefully i can share her “official” photos with you soon. but for now here are the photos she sent me via whatsapp. they were quite a hit on IG! #moroccomamma even went on camel back into the desert.
for those who might be wondering, i do call my mom “Mamma” – it’s an Afrikaans name for mom.
sweet things + sweet looks. let’s not over think it.
from the new york times: Jan McFarland Cox, an artist and designer, spent nearly a decade of her life building a house in the Idaho desert, along with architect Tom Kundig.
imagine lingering over a cup of coffee in this kitchen!

the dudes in my family went on a big bad bike trip this past weekend. they had several burst tyres when going through the tankwa karoo. so if you ever decide to do that… take lots of spares. i wish you could take a train right through the karoo – i would LOVE that! and i don’t mean the typical blue train route… more off the beaten track. kind of impossible to take a train to Die Hel though.
a friend of a friend took these photos in namibia, after they had heavy rainfall sometime at the beginning of this year. the colours are pretty much out of this world.
