It’s our pleasure to kick off big picture stuff’s photography with a bang. Or should we say with some prickly new pics. Inspired by the incredible artist Frida Kahlo, we collaborated with our favourite Livia from L is for Olive to create this photo series. Frida Kahlo was a Spanish artist who was loosely identified with the Surrealist art movement, but was known for her arresting self portraits that did not shy from telling her personal truth. In photos and in her paintings, she was never seen without flowers in hair.
This has to be one of our favourite photo series that we’ve ever done for our blog and it wouldn’t be possible with that amazing lady that you see in the photo! The idea all stemmed from seeing Liv‘s tassel earrings half a year ago. From that moment, we knew we had to pull something together honouring Frida. Then we discovered, Cactus Country. Is this a photographer’s dream, yes. Is it incredibly amazing, yes. Does it make you feel that you’re in some distant land, yes again.
If we can take something away from photo shoot, we would say, we learnt that even if you have the tinest concept or the inkling of an idea that excites you, go for it. You never know where that idea will take you and you don’t know what adventures that idea is going to take you on.
Sending our love to our darling Livia who has moved up to Sydney to pursue even more adventures and follow her heart. We miss you lovely one, but we know that you have some amazing things in store for you.
And if you’re reading this, that goes for you too! We’re excited to pick up the blog post for this year, it may be a little backwards at times, but we’re going to get back into the swing of things! Why? Cause we love it!
We seriously can’t believe how close it is to Christmas. Where did the year go? Working full time this year hasn’t left us much time for presents or decorations so I decided to do a really quick DIY on these fun “Christmas light” garlands. Continue Reading…
It is officially now the 12 day count down till Christmas! How crazy is that? We truly feel that this year has flown by and we’re amazed that it’s gone so fast. We’re also very happy that Christmas is now officially around the corner, well, simply because, we love Christmas!
There’s just something about the bright lights, the Christmas songs, the cheesy Christmas movies that are constantly on T.V. It brings a sense of joy and fun that we love to embrace. And of course, it’s the best time of the year to be grateful of the gift of hope, love and joy in the form of baby Jesus!
Thought we would share some fun ideas for the Christmas season. Here’s a little idea that we came up with to add your personal touch to your tree. Some lettered baubles!
Choose your phrase to letter and use a permanent marker or even a white or gold pen.
Writing the words can be quite tricky! But give it some time and paitence and you’ll get it! It’s not about making it perfect, it’s about making it something fun that you’ll like to put on your tree. Maybe even add some spots or star bursts around the letters.
There you have it! A quick and simple way to add a little bit of personality to your Christmas tree! You could even do it as a gift from someone that you love. Make sure you take a photo and tag us on facebook or instagram!
