Rain & Reflex

(RAIN by ceren kilic. 2012.)

(REFLEX by ceren kilic. 2012.)

 I've been falling in love with collages all over again. And I have a new favorite after stumbling upon Ceren Kilic's work. The geometric shapes and bright colors contrast perfectly with the vintage images. Rain and Reflex were two of my favorites, but there's many more excellent pieces to choose from. 

peace & love,


Inspired: Everything Is Incredible

"The problem is that everything is incredible and people just don't accept it."
Augustin, The Helicopter Man

(Update: A program has been started to collect donations for the artist. The goals are to purchase Augustin's home and helicopter for preservation. The secondary goal is to pay for a ride in a real helicopter for Augustin. You can make a donation here.)

Oh, how I love black, white, and gold. This drawing is so amazing.

I'm starting a big new project, and this is exactly what I needed right now. 

A Merry Mishap | New Earrings
I adore these geometric, color-blocked studs. I'll take a few pairs, please.

Miss Moss | Nemadji Pottery
This pottery is just incredible, each piece is so playful and unique. The story behind the brand is intriguing as well.

This Is Colossal | "The Pleasure Of" by Vituc
Seriously, this video brought tears to my eyes. It's perfect.

Spencer and Kylie | Quick Trip
These beautiful photographs of the AZ woods has got me quite homesick. 

I can't even explain how much I adore these photos. I actually feel like I'm there for just a moment.

Get serious about creative work. This is oh, so good.

These photographs melt my heart. I miss sunsets very much.

Birthday Girl

It's my birthday today! I've got plans to do a little shopping, get some delicious food, and a few other fun activities. (I know I'll be snapping instagrams all day, if you want to follow along with my birthday adventures!) While I'm off celebrating, I thought I would share some interesting facts about me!

1. I've had dreadlocks for about five or six years. Over the course of that time, my hair has developed an "ombre" effect. I adore my hair, it's so hassle-free.

2. I've also been a vegetarian for about four or five years.

3. Coffee is my favorite drink.

4. My best ideas and inspirations come late at night or very early in the morning.

5. Art and love are completely integral parts of my life. I would be lost without them.

6. Three words: Chocolate. Covered. Pretzels.

7. I can never decide between my love for snowy forest winters or balmy beach summers. I love both too much.

8. I don't watch television, I prefer music.

9. I love to; stargaze, watch the clouds, have picnics, make paintings with Daniel, practice hand-lettering, take too many photographs, and watch documentaries.

10. Bookstores and cute boutiques make my heart go aflutter. 

Well, I hope you enjoyed learning ten new things about me! If you would like, share ten things about yourself and post a link here, so I can read it!

Have a beautiful day everyone!

peace & love,


Birthday Wishes

My birthday is tomorrow! I've spent this evening browsing lots of lovely things on Etsy. I found this nice little selection of handmade goods that I would love to get for my special day. I'm especially smitten with that Polka Dot Turban. So cute!
