Hello my dears. Lots of exciting things have been happening in my design life and I’m excited to start sharing projects with you again. I feel like I haven’t posted anything that I’ve created since my site re-design! Anyways, lots of work during the week but I’ve left my weekends for fun. [ie a rooftop pool, delicious drinks, and playing with my cameras].
Speaking of cameras, the 30 Day Photo Challenge has been proving to be quite the challenge (go figure). Since I’m shooting film, I’ve challenged myself to shoot in August and post in September. It’s hard to stay motivated when I don’t feel the pressure of posting immediately and since I have no idea what these shots look like. I’ll probably develop the 3 rolls (Canon A-1, Pentax K1000, La Sardina) on the 30th so if some don’t turn out…I may shoot digital for that day. Anyways, for those shooting film…how is it going for you?
My girl crush #5 is on Mila Kunis. Whether she’s Jackie on That 70′s Show, Meg on Family Guy, or acting in some other movie, she always has the right amount of sass and style.
Interested in reading about my other girl crushes? Read up on Natalie, Nicki, Cate, and Kate.
This week’s Monday Link Love is food focused. I’m well aware that our summers here in Ohio last HALF the time our winters stick around, so in a way I’m trying* to soak up all the hot, sunny weekends while they last. (* I say trying because I freaking LOVE autumn!)
My current wishlist includes: (1) Batik Salad Serving Set, (2) Soho Round Beverage Cart, (3) Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet, (4) Chemex Coffeemaker, (5) Fuji Finepix X100 Digital Camera, (6) Steel frame dishrack, (7) Fhi hair dryer
What’s on your wishlist? And do you wait for someone to buy the things for you or splurge every now and then?
All work by Face – based in Monterrey, Mexico. Check out their work here.
It was a relaxing weekend here in Columbus. I walked around our apartment and took a few random shots. My makeup being left out on the sink, Desh’s toys (intact and destroyed) covering our rug, my two film cameras sitting in the bag, homemade huevos rancheros (OMG YUM), and our bed…that we probably make once a month. [all photos shot on my Canon DSLR]
My three most favorite things on the internet lately:
- ONE IOTA’s work for a local grocer.
- I loved reading why Annie likes shooting film.
- Weekly “Music Night.” I think Adam and I will start doing this.
A wonderful weekend afternoon with Janine. Thrifting + taco truck!
What are you favorite things to do on a weekend afternoon?
Cy Twombly, an American artist, passed away at the beginning of last month. The news saddened me and memories flooded back to when I first discovered this magical painter that (for the first time in my life) seemed to create pieces that connected so well to my heart. To many that may seem silly but there are artists out there that changed my view of composition and technique. So for that, I thank you Cy.
