first up, this 'song' really annoys me. but when it's on this video it's a bit like eating a mcdonalds hamburger with the pickles on - it's so wrong it's good. i love it. it's awesome. and the campaign looks amazing. i also like that wallpaper. what the hell is going on?

i would seriously become a hardcore whisky drinker purely to justify buying a set of these. it's the blade runner glass. it's amazing. i thought it was just a prop, but no, it exists, to buy.  it even comes in black.

I have been really focused on classics this week, simple black and white, tiny details, pieces you will wear and keep forever and designing to this aesthetic. I finally had a chance to read the new issue of Love magazine, the interview between Elle Fanning and Alexa Chung was pretty cute and I'm obsessed with the botanical engraved flourishes used with the type. 
I also finished and printed my business cards and had the chance to wear a few of my favourite pieces out for my brother's birthday dinner. The Zara evening bag and heels have become an evening staple and I love my Phillip Lim laser-cut leather shorts for special occasions.

acne studios

Dreaming a little big here but how amazing would it be to work for the Acne Studio art department? I remember seeing an image of the studio fridge in an old issue of Acne paper. Their chef had kindly posted a note of what would be on their lunch menu for the day. That's right, while you're creating a brand identity for Byredo Parfums or putting together a new season lookbook, a chef is making you lunch! 
These are a few of my favourite Acne related images at the moment; their amazing pink packaging, a photo I took of the Erotica issue back when I started the corner shop blog, the Acne team family portrait on their website, flashback to a 2005 lookbook and screen shots from the new Youth issue.

It's been a beautiful week in Sydney, sunny and fine with 22-25 degree weather every day. Needless to say my work has been neglected a little in favour of spending time in the sun. This morning I went to the Kings Cross markets, this is always one of my favourite things to do when I have a saturday off. 
I bought a beautiful bunch of fresh flowers, organic mango and peach juice and an amazing walnut and fig loaf from Brasserie Breads. 
I have also started wearing my lightweight summer scarves, K Jaques sandals and bright nailpolish. So ready for spring!

I came across this recipe site Gojee a week ago and I'm in love. You can search for recipes based on items you're craving or have in your pantry and exclude ingredients you dislike or are allergic too. 

So far I've made the orecchiette with sausage, broccoli and caramelised garlic and mom's blueberry-coconut muffins. I have been enjoying a muffin every night this week with a mug of english breakfast tea. Simple pleasures...

p.s. I have also finally started a tumblr
