Sorry we’re so behind on catching up with all the media madness this morning: we were busy putting the finishing touches on our new book! In all seriousness, imagine our surprise as we got ready for our first working day in Mexico and found the internet (and our inboxes!) abuzz with notifications: writer Paulo Coelho had posted our Manifesto! Our excitement faltered, however, when we found it was posted without proper credit.
There are times when it feels as if the world is asking more of you than you can possibly bare to give. As your body and spirit start to rebel, the warning signs mount: tension headaches go on for days, you burst into tears when the copy machine jams, you catch a cold three times in one month . Instead of hunkering down and plugging along, it’s time to refill the tank that is running on fumes alone.
Do you have moments of feeling dry and uninspired? Well, these ‘lil beauties ought to perk you up. I am busy revamping a client’s site at the moment (also while working on a commission artwork, PHEW ), and viewing the work of masterminds such as these really get my creative juices flowing. I stumbled across these via my new pinterest page (hint hint) where I’ve most definitely been having a little too much fun collecting eye-candy…
January 16th, 2012 Hey, Grandad Sometimes, I get an idea for a particular sartorial pairing in my head, and it just won’t go, nevermind the season. In this case it was my new Grandad-like loafers and a pair of minty socks. It’s not often that I’ll get dressed starting from the feet up, but this was one of those occasions; I looked a sight as a pulled out various garments from my wardrobe in my underwear, a pair of socks, and patent loafers. After dismissing a pair of yellow cropped trousers (yup, I pulled them on OVER the shoes because I’m that lazy), I opted for my old faithful Topshop summer dress, so the socks and shoes could do the ‘talking’.
A lovely friend of mine, Aleyn , visited me on my exhibit opening at Heima and got me a present. It was really sweet of her! Aleyn works for a videography studio so she travels a lot and it's a rare chance to find her in Manila. I've only seen her once before. We spent a couple of hours together window shopping and we never fail to pick out the same items we'd want to buy. If there's anyone I'd claim to be my brain twin (which I've never claimed before), it might be Aleyn.
A little while back I posted about Victoria's set up at Unique LA, and mentioned in that post that I got something from her that changed the way I send mail. It's called the letter ledger. It is handy way to keep track of what's coming in and going out of your mailbox. It's made my letter writing so much more enjoyable.

In Malcolm Gladwell 's book Outliers , he suggests that anyone can become an expert at anything if they work at it for 10,000 hours. And while success on the SAT doesn't take that long, there’s a reason the phrase “practice makes perfect” has become a cliché. If you play sports, video games or music, if you like to cook or act or draw, or if you’re into anything at all, you know that the more you can practice that thing you do, the better you get at it.
This year one of my all-time dreams came true: one of my photos was published by Chronicle Books as part of a notecard set compilation called Shoegazing . It all came about when Janine from Uppercase contacted me about using some of my pictures in her notecard project. Other peeps contributed photos, too: Andrea Jenkins , Cori Kindred , Rachel Denbow , Shawna Bowers , and many others. I submitted three photos, and she accepted one.
The word “splurge” may call to mind a large, unplanned, impulse buy, and many splurges may occur under those circumstances. But splurges can be planned, prepared for, and worked into your spending plan. Let’s look at how: Research
it's sunday. the beginning of the week, although i feel that sunday is more like the end of the week. i completely disagree with the calendar. i think the week should start with monday and the week should end with sunday. it just makes more sense in my opinion. but enough of that silly rant. here are my pretty things for the week... 1. prettiest little dress collection. 2. i want to shop in this pretty store on wheels . 3. she looks EXACTLY like my pretty friend binki. it's weird. 4. pretty rings. 5. pretty knit covered trailer.
