charmed i'm sure


"Holding or staring at this Creativity Charm is sure to break down any creative
blocks that may be in front of you. It helps by reminding you to be "in the moment",
and by "absorbing" any uncreative energies that may be swirling around in your head.
This charm automatically recharges itself by being in your pocket whenever you are
doing or looking at something that inspires you, and collects the energy
for you to use later, anytime you want! Awesome!
Made with found paper."

oo the little birdies

simply gushing over these lovely cooking utensils
officially my favourite object of the week
all the home-baked goods just waiting to be made
like they would just magically appear
from within these fantastical spoons
the possibilities could be endless

illuminating the possibilities

"As a fashion photographer, Nick Knight has consistently
challenged conventional notions of beauty."

underwater beauty



it speaks for itself

belle and boo



baby lily renewed my obsession with these gorgeous
illustrations by Mandy Sutcliffe
sunday afternoon found me trekking it to
my friends cousins house to visit
their beautiful new-born
perfect in every way
her room made an instant rise into
my fav stylish rooms list
from Sutcliffe-illustrated frames
to 30 year old cot
to red white and black birdy paintings
all in all a magnificent addition to the world
2 weeks old and oh-so-stylish

b&w and bouquiniste

cafe enrichment
reeling on stacks of b&w beauties
snapshot documentation
avoiding creepy old man chatting us up
with enlarged curled moustache
and donned with bicycle wear
quite the comical appearance


first round of tea and soy latte ruined
admiring all the crafty tidbits in the cafe
while sharing a jealous moment
at the creative genius behind the photo-collage
stuck on the wall to the right of the cash register
another example of b&w beauty
note to self: couch is extremely comfy


photo-sesh commences
b&w preferred medium today
sunlight proving difficult to negotiate
narrowly avoid creepy moustache-man
now on bicycle
exploration of surrounding cutesy dwellings
basking in their stylish qualities and pretty gardens


inspiration wearing thin
back for another round at bouquiniste
now my fav cafe located at new farm
cosy little cushions spotted outside
take residence in our first seating choice
shared bottle of water from a blue glass bottle
ordered another soy latte and hot chocolate this time


satisfied
photo-quenched
inspired
happy
created
admired
enjoyed

shading the lamp...

Rune Guneriussen

...The darkness might conquer, but it could never extinguish hope. And though one candle, or many, might flicker and die, new candles would be lit from the old. Thus hope's flame always burns, lighting the darkness till the coming of day...

- Dragonlance Chronicles (Weis & Hickman)
















mesmerising photography
simply takes your breath away
a landscape of household objects
one with nature
without the least bit of detraction
sharing this parallel obsession with lights
oh the wonder of their reflections

beauty...
a world of mirror dresses
paper dresses
set design
funky fashion
& music videos for Paloma Faith



stunning stop animation creates this magnificent little clip
bringing joy into creative minds everywhere
showing the true potentiality of a material as simple as paper
pushing its self-worth to new heights
and reinvigorating its use as a creative substance

beneath the surface

bubbles

water

camera

sweet editing techniques

oh how this obsession engulfs my creative thought
movement and slivers of filtered light penetrating through the water's surface
sends a calming demeanour through the veins
coupling with the difficulty of holding ones breath
the joy of simply floating like a suspended moment in time
feeling the delicate pockets of air brush against your skin as they make they're way to the top
releasing half your lung capacity so that you can revel in the beauty of the bottom
