bikie chic.

Eek - already planning my first purchase for when I hit the UK next week (yes, next freaking week!!).  Loving these Alpha Padded Double Buckle Ankle Boots from Topshop.  Yes, I know what you're thinking.  I may already own a similar pair.  But you see, I need another pair.  Specifically, this pair.  For £75 (approx AUD $112.50), you can order a pair too, right here!
Don't sweat it, you can thank me later.

dion lee prescription.

Not only do I love the fashion in fashion shows, but I do quite enjoy having a squiz at what the lucky people attending these shows receive from the postman.  Dion Lee's S/S '11 collection worked with the theme of cut-out segments from structured garments - quite like the dissecting work of a surgeon, whilst the colour palette (mainly minty green and white) resembled that of the colours usually worn by hospital staff.  Lee very cleverly mirrored these themes through his invitations, a box of pills (well, mints in this case) prescribed to attendees of his show.  Me likey!

boom's books.

If you have a spare 6 minutes and 6 seconds this morning, and you rather fancy publication design - you should probably watch this.

mara hoffman.

Just when I had given up hope that I'd ever get the inspiration to jump into a bikini in a few short weeks to kick start my travel adventures - I once again am blown away by the latest collections from Mara Hoffman (check out her blog here). At a time when I can't get enough of colour, fluorescence and embroidery - Ms. Hoffman is satisfying my every whim. Now - just need to book the spray tan...

the makers.

What a busy week!

Whilst I have been getting back into a bit of freelancing work recently, I have also been making the time to revisit my folio before heading overseas.  And that means getting my mojo back.  Which MEANS, becoming inspired...

I have finally gotten my ass back into scouring blogs, magazines, publications, the lot.  And can I just say, The Makers have me absolutely inspired!  Kind of running with the same theme as The Selby, this website showcases beautifully taken photographs of the creative work spaces of cool people that sourouned themselves with beautiful design whilst they work...

Which, my friends, leads me to my next point:  It doesn't matter whether you're a jeweler, a designer, a barista or a baker, it is possible to entwine your career and with design.  You can work in an inspiring space, no matter what you do.  Heck, even if you're restrained to simply pinning up some inspiring images on your pinboard at work!  I think it's so important to remain inspired by design, by travel, by colour, family and friends - whatever it may be, that even if your work doesn't inspire you enough - you can still surround yourself by what inspires you most.  We spend over half our lives at work - so we may as well make it beautiful!
