paris- sweet life.

you know how i'm love with PARIS (how original) and how we often relate chicly dressed women/men in striped petit bateau shirts, smoking cigarettes to our vision of the ultimate parisian? i've been introduced to a tumblr today that reminds me that paris is so much more than that- it is rich with the most colourful, vivid, raw people on every corner; the stunning african women, the punks, the gypsies. these candid photos, taken by a flaneuse with a beautiful eye, had me at 'bonjour'. i only wish there were more...

the day of discovery.

i learned today that i was born on the day of discovery and found this quite fitting. i am a student for life and a constant explorer, curious and adventurous. check out what your birthday means based on 'a distillation of personality trait commonalities found in a 40-year study of the biographies of more than 20,000 people, organized by date of birth'.

hair inspo: the great gatsby.

what i wouldn't give to have been part of those party scenes in baz luhrmann's the great gatsby- the latest film version of the F. Scott Fitzgerald masterpiece novel. the decadence, the dancing, the costumes, the HAIR (which of course was always embellished with extra dazzling goodies). oof. so good. who doesn't feel a little inspired by the 20's bob as it is? my favourite from the film were those that were cut into creamy candy coloured strands- i'm totally wanting to now get a pastel purple do myself. oh, and in due time, i will!

bespoke balloonery. 2.

today i'm sharing these magical shots from the Bespoke Balloonery (recent) archives. it's a hazy bluey grey day out in sydney today and these shots are washed in the same hue. this special photoshoot also fulfilled one of my longtime dress up daydreams- to play my own sad clown Pierrot, alongside a sweet little drummer boy. check out the beautiful Bespoke Balloonery site and get excited for mini versions of the tassel garlands and balloon details we already love as well as an upcoming online shop, debuting just in time for your southern hemisphere winter festivities. these gorgeous handcrafted goodies will surely warm your heart.

low ride bicycles go cruising by...

i did a shoot with fabulous photographer Fiona Galbraith last month; we took some shots that i am really looking forward to sharing with you! to start, there's this one of one of my favourite things: a little wire low rider bicycle found at flea market in mexico city. i brought it home and added the mini basket, just big (small) enough to hold postage stamps- the sweetest little touch. i just adore it, don't you?

this photo of Amrita Sher-Gil and her sister Indira from 1923 is all sorts of beautiful to me. check out the story of the little known Indian painter and her similarities to the great Frida Kahlo here.
