MOST WANTED: FOR THE WEEKEND


So, I wanted to stop by to thank you all for your encouragement after my last post about opening up a bit more over here.  Who knew you'd all love a bit more of the personal stuff?  Well, you did, obviously.  Anyway, as a thank you, here's a list of things I really want.  I know, I'm too good to you.  Jokes aside, thanks for allowing me to not feel like a massive idiot for the offer of being a bit more sharey (yes, it's now a word) and for reading my blog.  It means a lot to me.  Oh, and if any of you are feeling extra generous, I would like one of each of the above please and thank you kindly.   Ok, have a great weekend, friends and see you back here next week?  Date, done.

  2. wow, that ethan cook work is really affecting me right now. i'm really feeling the colours + textures of his work...thanks for bringing it up! :)

    also, dang do i ever want that zara shirt! too bad i'm boycotting them (they steal most of their imagery from bloggers, so beware!)...but maybe i'll find something similar elsewhere? (though not for cheaper, haha!)

    ps. i've been really into chairlift (the band) lately...have you ever heard them? pretty much the whole album "something" is playing non-stop in my head...

    <3!

    1. I know, if you look closely I think the art is made up of weavings - he's amazing.

      Also, the Zara thing - I didn't realise. I never shop there normally... interesting.

      NO, I have not heard Chairlift - thanks for the tip, I'll check them out. xx

    2. gogogo check out chairlift! they are incredible. i can't believe that people aren't falling over themselves to fill the blog-waves with their music!

      and yeah, zara kept ripping off this one girl (they took a photo of her, ran it through photoshop, and then printed it on t-shirts! whaaaat?!), but she's not the only one...far from it, apparently. so i've just stopped shopping there. (not that i really ever did! but...i guess it's something?) (ps. link to that stuff here: http://www.fashionindie.com/zara-steals-french-bloggers-photos-for-tee-shirts/)

      i guess i'm feeling ethan cook's work because of those textures...and though i did notice some of them are woven/fabric, i didn't realize all of them were! hmm. i think i love them even more, now... :)

    3. Oh yeah, I did see that story a while back - didn't realise it was Zara. Argh, I never normally shop there and this proves to me to always trust your instincts I suppose!

  3. It's like you're inside my brain, Jo. For realz. I want it all! Especially some artwork by Ethan Cook, those earrings and that lacy pretty bra.

  4. Okay, so for starters I just saw that first comment from Lo and had a momentary freak out because I could not remember posting it. I mean obviously it is something I would say (because I am OBSESSED) with those earrings I just couldn't figure it out haha.

    Everything on this board is PERFECT, I think we have very similar taste!

    I also really enjoyed your last post. It took me a long time to come to terms with sharing bits of me on my blog (I still haven't gotten comfortable enough to post a lot of photos of myself etc.) but once I started doing it it was instantly rewarding. It's great for making connections and really getting something out of your blog. Like the podcast recs, thanks for looking out, things like that make me love blogging!

      Thank you - it's difficult to open up but worth it in the end I think.

  6. Above all, thank you so much for your honesty from the previous post, Jo! It's something I struggle with every single day, since I'm an introvert person too (a small bear as it call my boyfriend :))) ). I love so much your blog, your style, your refined and classy taste (look at this collection, it's simply perfect!), and I'm sure I'm going to love it even more with the small pieces of your personal life, you'll decide to share here :)
