Miss Moss: Mid Week Distraction No. 18

Mid Week Distraction No. 18

wow, i feel like my biggest and only post these days to you is my mid week distraction. don’t get me wrong – i LOVE doing it. and i love that you love it. but i’ve found myself so busy with non-blog stuff lately that i’m neglecting this old bird……

Mid Week Distraction No. 5

some days, nay, weeks are hard to get through – and i feel like this one is a particular slog. i think it might be because it dawned on me this morning that it’s basically a month till Christmas. so if you are in the same boat then perhaps some of these distractions will help.

birthday

Goodies No.13

i don’t make birthday wish lists in real life, and i don’t particularly like being asked what i want for my birthday. i’m a firm believer in giving someone a gift that you really want them to have, doesn’t matter how big or small it is… or how weird it…

Bits of My Weekend

things have been quiet around here the past few days because it was my birthday on friday. i was treated to an amazing weekend away in Greyton, so we hightailed it outta here after lunch time on friday & didn’t look at the internet for the next few days -…

Miscellania

thank you all for your wonderful response to the Rewardrobe post! it made me feel a bit better about getting too “covety” around here (want want want / need need need). i suppose i wouldn’t actually spend diamond money on designer clothing… i’d probably pay my rent first. but i…

These Things No.13

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…

Busypants

finally got my hands on a copy of bossypants yesterday (i had to wait for the ipad kindle edition since the actual book isn’t available in south africa yet. like most good things i anticipate it won’t be for a while.) i got home from work, made myself comfortable on…

Master Collagist

i have told you about my friend amy before (see her things i like right now to spruce your memory.)  i have dubbed her Master Collagist. since our first year together in university 9 odd years ago now, amz has made books full of collages to inspire her. people actually stole…

seven facts

hila tagged me in her seven facts post. i kind of love these things and have never done one… so decided to play along. i’m not going to tag anyone – but if you like this and end up doing one yourself, please leave the link in the comments! 1.…

Good times, noodle salad

pictures that induce happiness and somehow manage to distract from the realities of real life. ps: have you called your mom & dad lately? do it now. – david bailey – helen korpak – briton riviere: sympathy – randy martin – vovesdyh – what makes the pie shops tick?

these friday things

been wanting to watch seinfeld lately. everything about this picture = the nineties to me. especially elaine’s backpack and the way her jersey is tied around her waist. my favourite street style shot of the entire week at from me to you disassembly project by todd mclellan moulin rouge in…

just like the old days

as a tween / teen in south africa, growing up without the internet / blogs / tumblr meant gaining inspiration from sources you physically had to get your hands on. we used to peruse the paperweight shop and buy outdated issues of foreign magazines by the bag full. and then…
