Can you imagine having a paint palette like Xenia Hausner's? It makes me want to go to the closest art supply store and buy tubes of paint in every colour. It's the perfect day for it too! x.

The English actress is slowly growing on me... x.

I am in love with French designer, Olympia Le-Tan's book bags -
Named after the Bo Diddley song “You Can’t Judge a Book by Its Cover,” the 21-piece collection is hand-embroidered, lined with a vintage Liberty print and inscribed with literary quotes like “People Never Notice Anything.” Via
They are so cute it's ridiculous! x.

New York is my favourite city in the world. (My heart just sank that little bit after writing that sentence) There is something magical about the city... the people, the streets, the bright lights are awe-inspiring. I could spend hours and hours wandering the streets of New York City and be perfectly content doing so. It's the kind of place that inspires you, allows you to dream and, most importantly believe that anything is possible.

Since returning from my last trip to New York, I discovered this wonderful blog called, Downtown from Behind -
The concept is an environmental portrait for each street and its subject.  The goal to highlight a unique set of individuals who have had an impact, previously or currently on downtown New York City, making downtown what it is today. Via.
I love how transport (in this case, bicycle) is the constant that offers the viewer a glimpse into the every day life of the rider. It's so... raw. x.

I am totally digging 'The Collections' Ruby Aldridge by Norbert Schoerner for UK Harper's Bazaar February 2011... I love the use of bold colours and lines. Contemporary fashion shot and stylised at its minimal best! x.

The contrast between the sea blue gown and green grass. Via.
The use of light - how it bounces off the gold bangle. Via.
Still life. Via.
The green skirt just pops out at you! Via.
(Besides the dress) I love the parrallel lines in this shot. Via.

Taylor Tomasi Hill is my ultimate style icon. I love her hair, the way she rocks it and the clothes that she wears. She has a wonderful presence about her. x.

I love the simplicity of this outfit - it's sexy in a demure way.  The soft textures and
shades balance the bold leather heels and leopard print stole. Such a feminine look! Via.
This outfit is soooo cool - I don't know where to begin... The sheer silver top... Nope,
can't do it. It's that cool! :) Via.
This is an outfit only Taylor can pull off. Love her sunglasses and pale pink Miu Miu
clutch. Via.
Three things stand out in this outfit: (1) The Rodarte tee (2) The D.I.Y. blazer (3) The
Tommy Hilfiger heels. Via.
The fact that Taylor is wearing Proenza Schouler is enough to call this my favourite look -
the PS top offsets Taylor's fiery red tresses and gives her just the right amount of edge.
She has the most amazing accessories including her chunky gold wedding band. Love it! :)
How sweet and summery does Taylor look in this photo?  I dig the fact that she's recycling
her wedding shoes! Via.
