It's not mine, but it's cute (Happy New Year)

I'm on holidays, cruising around the coast catching up with friends, swimming in the ocean and eating lots. I met up with my amazing friend Hannah and her beautiful baby #2 - Matilda. Hannah and her husband Adam bake a good cake - their other child Poppy is just as divine as this little one is. As it's the 31st December (which is also my bro's birthday - Happy Birthday Anth!), I thought a picture of a brand new person was appropriate. A new year starts tomorrow and although it's a day like any other day, there's a feeling of shedding an old skin and starting out fresh which I love. This year I'm going to work my ass off, travel lots, eat well, find some new bands to listen too, and hopefully make some artwork that I'm really proud of. Happy 2012 - stay safe and happy! xxx

Jasmine van den Bogaerde, aka Birdy - 15 years old and singing one of my favourite songs. Sorry Bon Iver, I think she does it better. This song and it's film clip are pretty much on repeat in my life right now. Amazing xxx

Ken Done x Something Else

It's been a long time coming for Ken Done to make a comeback... and he does it with Something Else... Fuck yeah xxx

We need to talk about Klaus

I recently had the pleasure of turning 29 years old, and as the dates fell I shared my birthday with the wedding of my friends Julian and Diana. These two cuties got married out at the Heidelberg Museum of Modern Art, must admit I had a slight case of wedding envy watching them tie the knot at one of Melbourne's most amazing establishments (but that swiftly wore off and I returned to my normal, not-getting-married-ever self). Congrats to these guys - a privilege to share in their special day. Now... onto Klaus:

For my birthday I was also lucky enough to be the recipient of some gorgeous gifts, including 2 bowls and 2 plates from the Taika series by Klaus Haapaniemi for Iittala, to add to my collection. An interest normally maintained by people turning 79, not 29, hoarding this dudes crockery really does it for me. Which made me hop on over to his website to see what other little things of his I might be able to get my hands on. Well, my Xmas list just got a bit longer.... check out his scarf, cushion and of course the Taika bowl. He's so good... and Scandinavian.... xxx
