I just finished a book in record time - one month, instead of three ( all thanks to the #tenpagesaday initiative ). And this aforementioned book happens to be one of the most important I have ever read, or opened. It is the book that everyone needs to read. Clare Press' hilarious, moving, insightful book,… Continue reading the sustainers :: palmaira sandals.
Pandora Sykes has been on my radar, hanging in the peripheral, for quite some time now. There's always an envy-inducing street style image in Tommy Ton's fashion week compilations, and a hair cut to wish for. In the last couple of weeks though, this one-sided relationship has gone to the next level. Bordering obsession, but… Continue reading find your dream :: pandora sykes.
I read a very important article on Huffington Post, titled 'To Anyone Who Thinks They're Falling Behind in Life'. How could someone have written an article so directly related to my current life situation, arriving in my Facebook feed at just the right time? Or maybe Facebook scarily knows me way too well. A lot… Continue reading timing is everything.
Some days it feels like the world just really doesn't want you around. It pissed on your glorious sunshiney, gym-class, solid outfit morning. And that bitch enjoyed it. Every question is answered with a no, every call for help rejected. All faith is lost in the state government as they steal more and more money… Continue reading when the world says no.
I'm always excited for summer, every time it comes around, but this year I think the feeling is even greater than usual. It's all because I've come terms with the fact that the period may not be what I typically determine as "perfect". It's more about going with the flow and making the most of… Continue reading manspiration :: martine rose.
I wonder if I could be a barista. I love to watch them at work - how fast their hands move as they navigate the grinding, then the coffee-making ( see, I really do have a lot to learn ), the milk-frothing. So much care and precision put into each. There are times I regretfully… Continue reading musings :: alicia vikander.
Who would have thought I had it in me to become genuinely excited about a pair of hiking pants and some virtually shapeless waterproof trousers? And after all my whinging, regretting and fears of money-wasting too. I have been converted, at least on some level, to the ways of the ( seriously less cool )… Continue reading the sustainers :: patagonia.
Now that spring is officially here - as the winds get a little warmer, the sneezes a little more common, and the layers peeling off - I can finally look back on the Resort collections with happiness, as opposed to hatred. Living in the Southern Hemisphere in winter while our fashion friends up North swelter… Continue reading reliving :: rosie assoulin resort.
The white shirt is one item I believe you can never have too many of, within some sustainable / smart reins of course. Case in point - my wardrobe - which lacks many essentials, but white shirts exist in abundance. They have earned their own washing pile. Generally speaking I have a bit of an… Continue reading anatomy of :: the white shirt.
Is it just me, or was today impossibly long, and nowhere near as productive as hoped? I set out the morning with such good intentions of reading all my articles opened, because, learning, finish that assignment that is lingering over my head, and put together an ingenious blog post. Sadly none of this was achieved.… Continue reading a solution for tired eyes.
