Something for the weekend

I enjoy shooting with my analogue cameras, digital cameras and my iPhone equally — it’s all about creating images and recording moments for me — so when Annie Leibovitz pulled out her iPhone I gave a whooop of joy. Decades of photographic snobbery crumbling right there!

Melody Miller fabric

Bought this lovely fabric (above) to make some cushions and then discovered the fabric’s super-talented designer follows me on Twitter — i mean, what are the odds? So everybody, meet Melody Miller. Melody, meet everybody!

How about this place for a magical getaway?

Something for the weekend


I went to bed on Tuesday feeling weird and promptly woke up the next morning with some sorta illness that doesn’t have a name — it’s a mash-up of the flu, tonsillitis and a migraine. FUN! I’m off to the doctor’s in an hour to see if she can do anything for me. However, I am so committed to my Friday posts there was no way I was going to let this one go by…. plus it’s 11/11/11, so consider this your little reminder to make a wish :)

[video] This incredible video has been everywhere and for good reason

Loving Jen Causey’s new calender

And finally, i’m back from the doctor with a jar of penicillin and a House season six box set. That should sort me out. Be well everyone! xo

Something for the weekend

I don’t really know how to look after myself. I mean, I try, don’t get me wrong, but these days I seem to be turning into a workaholic. I’m just so flippin’ passionate about what I do i don’t want to slow down. So I’m trying to learn the art of time management — how to work more efficiently so I a) get more done and b) can eek out some down time too. So in the interests of self-care I’m sharing a short SFTW today so I can finish my work in time to catch a train to see my nephew. Two days with Blondie Bear should be enough to reboot my brain ready to get back to my desk on Monday. Boo yah!

Have you seen Amy’s delicious new offering?

Jen’s daughter is my new fashion icon (speaking of Jen, she’s food blogging again!)
