Dreaming x

If you won the lottery what would be the first thing you’d do?

I would find my dream bolt hole. Not exotic, not luxurious in the sense of stuff but with a deep richness.

Somewhere small, basic with heart, to breathe, dream and tread softly. Like this cabin from New Zealand (one of two) designed created in part as a reaction to overly large, little-used second homes. I like the ethos.

Need to buy a ticket..

For Kirsty With Love x


Because caring is sharing: This is the stunning work of New Zealand artist, illustrator and overall creative, Kirsty Warman who I’ve been a fan of since I first saw and followed her Blog. I’ve been dying to do a Blog post on her..but I didn’t think it would take this direction…


Just recently, Kirsty was approached by VIDA, the Google venture backed ecommerce platform that brings together designers and makers from around the world to create original and inspiring fashion in a socially conscious way.  They wanted Kirsty to collaborate with them to turn her Art into clothes – and it’s happening..right now!static1.squarespace-1

Over the next week, if her designs hit the 3+ orders each, VIDA will produce her unique designs..how cools is that?


Furthermore, for every VIDA product produced, the company pledges to help the makers in Karachi, Pakistan with literacy programmes.  It’s a win, win..
