boho chic headpiece

entertaining the idea of this headpiece for my big day. it should look amazing against my new hair colour. no one does boho like the richie and i am dead in love with this house of harlow pretty... alas it is a bit to pricey for this here south african girl... do not fear for etsy is here. found this much cheaper version from luvstonevintage. i may attempt making myself one.

what i wore

just before kyle returned home to london, he took me out for lunch. i suggested we go to the hertford, where gary and i have secured our date (eeek), to have a bit of a look see. the food was fantastic, as i knew it would be. it's such a pretty little country hotel. there were even monkeys in the trees. in jo'burg. amazing. needless to say, kyle approves. yay!

smiljan radic casa pite

earthy geometric house. i love how this home gives the illusion, from within, of being craved from the very rocks that surround it. please can i have a beach house like this? pretty please? with a cherry on top? photographs by cristobal palma.

lu chong

one day i hope to own one of these absolutely weird but gorgeous paintings. they have an eerie dreaminess about them. lu chong is one talented artist. i love this extract from his bio (because  totally do exactly this), "his portraits do not simply capture the physical or emotional likeness of the subject, rather they beckon to establish an authentic engagement - interaction that ensues when one comes face to face with the sensual, the inexplicable, and the unsettling."

dead man's bones

ryan gosling & zach shields do i only but thank the heavens for your mutual obsession with ghosts. i know i am dead (haha) late but by goodness lads, you are good. if you have not had the pleasure, do yourselves a favor and go take a listen. it's just the two of them. they play all the instruments and are accompanied by a child choir. little cherub voices. mad. thank you! you brought me inspiration. i cannot stop, its just pouring out of me at the moment. right now i am writing this post, laying out a print, & finishing off an illustration. last night i spring cleaned my studio, did a painting, framed said painting and designed a new necklace. thank you... again.
