undertow..


i don't want to sound like some zen master or a life coach trainee, but is there a better season to celebrate life than springtime.? everything seems easier with a few rays of sunshine and blooming trees. so go out and pick some flowers, the universe can wait.

1969..


"cultural transformation was an irresistible force during the sixties, and across america and around the globe civil rights, women's and gay liberation, the sexual revolution and, of course, the explosive soundtrack of r&b, soul and rock and roll informed everything from politics to fashion." 
everytime i read something like this, i can't help but wonder, where is our '1969 spirit' today.?

viva la cuba..


being able to travel is the greatest joy a person can have. it can lift your spirit, broaden your horizons and literaly take you to places you've dreamt of. traveling far isn't always affordable, but book reading, listening to music and exploring things in any way possible surely is. and it is the first step towards appreciating the beauty that this world has to offer. 
these are a few of my mum's photos from her last year's trip to cuba. looking at them and listening to her stories makes me feel like i've already been there. but they also make me want to get back soon.

red house..


ever since i discovered sugarhigh+lovestoned two years ago, they've been my number one source of inspiration and their clothes are constantly on the top of my wishlist. picking beautiful and talented wild belle natalie for their latest editorial muse was nothing but a natural choice. as was the fact that the shooting took place at jimi hendrix's old house in laurel canyon, california. when it comes to tami and chloe, freespirited lovestoners that stand behind this project, you cannot expect anything less.
