Next Adventure.

I always get excited when i see beautiful places online then realize they're in England. And not that far from London! This Inn looks like it was designed just for me. All of the little details are exactly right.


Well, this time it's Pantone. Guess i'll have to use up my Penguin Classics postcards in a hurry and move onto these asap.

Country Air.

In the past month i've spent lots of time breathing in country air. At the beginning of April it was in Cornwall for ten days, a trip that spoiled me with views of the sea that i've seen a few times now and still completely stun me with their beauty. There's nothing quite like leaving london and hitting the barrier of fresh air that you forget you're missing out on when you're in the city smog for months on end. Your head feels clearer and your clothes smell fresher. This weekend was a jaunt to Kent, a new part of england i hadn't even seen before, and how wonderful it was. It's the kind of place that immediately feels like home with windy roads, fields full of yellowy flowers, bluebells all along the roadside and beautiful old houses. Filling up on clean sunshiney air, now i'm back in london and eager to get back to the country side as soon and as much as possible. Never too soon for a country escape.

Lovely Rings.

After a weekend spent with the wonderful AGB i'm inspired by big rings. This has been further fueled by these. I'm going to sleep on this and then see if they still seem completely necessary to add to the collection when i wake up in the morning.

Another Video.

This week's theme is beautiful videos. Okay, two beautiful videos. Who knew you could do something so pretty with ink and water.

Secret Ingredients.

As of late days have been whirlwinds and weeks and months go by in a flash. I can't keep everything straight, let alone, find time to do much for myself (this includes writing on here). London has decided to give winter a rest, the sun has come out to play and everything is in bloom. When night time comes and the day is over i've been finding reading Secret Ingredients calms the mind. I can't believe it's taken me this long to get this New Yorker compilation, but it honestly was worth whatever the wait has been. Whether it's little tidbits written in the 30s about meat gatherings or Bourdain writing about what days are best to eat fish it's been lulling me to sleep in the best way possible. If you have any interest in food, get it. Now. Hurry.

From the time i was little i have always been fascinated with time lapse photography. This pretty much takes the cake.
