LUST_SAINT LAURENT

Screen Shot 2014-04-14 at 10.58.13 AM

On March 3rd Saint Laurent tweeted: “Saint Laurent Collection XI was entirely made on Grace Hartzel who opened and closed today’s show.” The French house which is under direction of Hedi Slimane since nearly two years back just released their Pre-fall 2014 look book. The girl of the moment, Grace Hartzel features in 45 photographs taken by Hedi Slimane for Saint Lauren’s permanent and pre-fall collections captured in Los Angeles in December, 2013. What we like about this campaign more than rich chic Grace? The high waisted denims paired to effortless fluid shirts and timeless shoulder bags.

_Fresh Inspiration for April

Throughout my life flowers have always played a big role. I remember my mother tending to her garden when I was a child. She would make me pick up the leaves in Spring and Fall, trim, fertilize but most vividly I can recall the beautiful flower arrangements that always adorned our home. Right now I am inspired to go out in the garden and tend to my own blooms, they are coming on well. Check out photos from my garden on Istagram: @_ANA3ANA. Get inspired with these images from an incredible blog I recently discovered called Hedgerow Rose. All of these blooms below are lovingly cultivated by Laurie the blog’s keeper. Head over there to enjoy this virtual paradise of blooms and so many others!

Flower Power Happy Hour!

Last weekend I had the pleasure of being invited by Alison Valentine, singer and flower entrepreneur, to co-host a workshop on how to make a whimsical fresh flower crown at the awesome Freehand Miami during Winter Music Conference ’14. Even though at the last minute Alison couldn’t join me because she is working on her magical EP in sunny Los Angeles, it was such a pleasure and honor for her to send this fun challenge my way! I can’t wait to do it again together! So much love Alison, we can’t wait to hear the new tunes <3.

I had a blast with all the girls that stopped by to make a fresh flower crown.  Special shout out to Amanda at the Freehand for making the day unforgettable. Really good vibes, superb music and that punch,  it was just too perfect! Check out the Freehand Miami on your next trip to Miami or like us locals do, anytime your can.

“When Isabelle was pregnant with our baby I came up with many ideas that I wanted to do once the baby arrived,”says Emil. “It’s just so much fun. There is nothing serious about these pictures and that shows when we take them. The only thing that usually is in my mind when I take them is to get as funny face as possible from the baby.”

I love all those things. I also love Chrissy Lau, illustrator of the snap below and a gazillion other superb works on her blog, shop and mega awesome website: http://deciphertheday.blogspot.com.au

I stumbled on this lovely lady on Instagram because I feel in love with one of her illustrations. Now I see them all over the place. Web, magazines, instas, she’s hot.
