Previously I have reflected on the perfected personal style of Jasmine Dowling, as well as my fangirling habits. But now I want her job ( / life ). One thing you should all know about me in advance - for some reason, I have an innate dream of living the freelance life and it's been… Continue reading find your dream :: jasmine dowling.
This little collage I pored my lunchtime into sums up how I felt on the weekend, following two massively delayed flights, both to Melbourne and back. So much time spent whining and whinging, stressing about the wrong information on the departures board (surely our gate hasn’t closed when the plane hasn’t even arrived?), and asking… Continue reading thought process of airport waiting.
The lightning last night blinded me through my eye lids - I felt like the naughty kid during the magnesium experiment in high school science class, trying to peek at the insanely bright effect. A reminder that the weather is such a powerful and wild thing, completely out of our control. I'm not sure what… Continue reading feels for australia day.
I feel this strange immense set of guilt every time I am too lazy to refuse a plastic bag at the store. You have one second to notify the staff member of your non-requirement and then it is too late. Only a second to take action. I might just be one person, but that's where everything… Continue reading plastic guilt.
We’ve had a good start to September. The beach has been ticked off, along with drinking coconuts and sun soaking. Making the most of every warm moment, and trying to avoid being stuck indoors. - Yes, the Dior Cruise 2016 show was a while ago now. But how can you not reminisce on this greatness?… Continue reading inspiration wall :: sept.
I had a Forrest Gump moment on the train today. If life is like a box of chocolates it's also full of some pretty nasty ones. Like maybe meatloaf or tuna chocolate. Basically the worst flavours you could dream of, potentially inspired by the strange treats available in Harry Potter's wizarding world. Because there are… Continue reading life + chocolate.
The last day of bliss before heading back to work tomorrow was well spent - I completed some of my 'finallys' - finally. I finally got that haircut I've been meaning to book for months, finally upgraded my poor little iphone, finally started my 2015 life planning, finally blah blah blah. Endless, almost. There was… Continue reading inspiration wall :: jan.
Another one of those crafts where you're like, 'man I wish I could do that'. I tried my hand at pressing flowers when I was younger, and have dreamt of putting together amazing bouquets, but there is no way I could pull this one off. I love the way Anne Ten Donkelaar integrates pressed flowers with… Continue reading constructing with flowers.
I've always wished I could paint or draw or express myself on paper like that somehow. Now this thing called thread art is all the rage - maybe it's my calling. Combining two of my favourite loves: the arts and fashion / textiles. Thread art is almost like a 3D collage, enhancing any image. So… Continue reading thread art.
A good collage warms my little heart. So much. There is just something so great about different textures, different papers, different colour tones, all coming together in the one image. Like all these elements mixing together to create something even more magnificent. That's what they call synergy. And I love the hard work that goes… Continue reading collage-ville.
