Some Good Brands on Instagram

I guess that part of my job now is scouting great new designers/creators and/or just seeing whats out there for inspiration (FINALLY I can say I'm working when I look at Instagram. That was my goal all along). Here are a few accounts with great images and great items that I've run across recently..

1. Miss Brown Vintage


 @missbrownvintagebyronbay

A lot of cool 70's vintage inspired things for sale with cool 70's photos. I want all of those striped sweat shirts!

2. Porter James NY

@porterjamesny

Modern and vintage home designs - I didn't even know furniture could get this great?

3. Na Nin Studio

@naninstudio

I think I saw corduroy shoes somewhere therefore it makes me think its a store to watch. (where do these thoughts come from. i don't know). but i like the dreamy hues of the gram and all the white high waisted pants.

linking you UP!


happy monday!!!! above is me today after a great w/e!
i enjoyed my boyfriends birthday party on saturday, and since his out of town friends were here it turned in to a weekender - and now all of a sudden its monday. but it was such a nice time full of fun, positive happy people that my typical monday grumpiness had no effect, it was great!
then after work my friend made me go for a run...as i might have mentioned i've been totally off the workout train but this was a nice little kickstart. i couldn't even find my running clothes at first and then they smelled musty from the drawer, but hey - i made it and now am enjoying that post run energy...lets see how long it lasts?!
does my tendency to never use capital letters annoy you?
kbye!

Good Links

+ every instagram travel picture, we are so cliche ;)

+ rise and fall of the waterbed...interesting!

+ I made roasted sweet potato quinoa this week for lunches and it was perfect. But i'd probably add little bit of chicken (carnivore!) and eventually learn how to actually spell or say quinoa.

+ these shoes though!

+ a lingerie brand whose photos are fantastically realistic on their website and instagram. in love.

+ i love this trend where girls are making over their bratz and barbies to look more like real girls

+ i made this creamy white wine gnocchi last week and it was amazing. Sidenote, i used nothing vegan so....maybe thats why it was so good?! (jk vegans, someday i will try it the vegan way)

Apparatu's magical vase

 
I guess that I'm super exhausted. Its not even 9pm and I think I'm going to go to sleep after I share this super vase by ceramics studio Apparatu. Who are you Apparatu???? There is hardly any information on your website, just pictures of work. But THIS is my favorite. And I'm so tired that I'm not even going to put more pictures you just have to go the website if you're more curious!

Goodnight. 

P.S. Can I copy make this vase?

Best Links of the Week Feb2018


Sooooo it's Carnival (fasnacht) time in Luzern...which means the city goes crazy for a few days (but still, the garbage is picked up before people start going to work and the streets are pristine...which amazes me about switzerland).  I love it - its such a fun relaxed atmosphere and the costumes are amazing. I don't know how this festival is overlooked by the rest of the world - but if you ever get a chance to visit Luzern during Fasnacht, do!!!!!

Some good links

+ I've been addicted to Man Repeller lately. This article/theory on how to get Instagram likes was really interesting to read - but I think the reader comments were even more interesting!

+ 10 years or so later and I'm still reading I Wrote This For You blog

+ a sweet article on how maybe love is supposed to be boring. (again from man repeller, i tell ya!)

+ this still makes me laugh every time

+ a fascinating article on instagram bots and who pays for them (so against those, if a random person has $$,$$$ followers i can't take them seriously)

+ Maira G studio has some really nice blogger and wordpress themes and they are totally affordable (found via queso suizo)

+ this outfit looks so comfortable and cool. i'll never know because they don't ship to switzerland :(

+ I'm totally charmed by "the cheapest apartment in manhattan" - take the tour here!

+ I love this article on taking your power back on the internet! lets get back to the roots!

+ yes yes yes resin earrings!

New Trend: Shadow Drink Photography



I'm totally delighted that my pinterest shows me all of these cool drink photos. Made me thirsty! And gave me something else to look at other than Maryam Nassir Zadeh shoes (which I have nothing against tho). The first couple were great and then all of a sudden they kept coming and I realize that A. I'm a slave to Pinterest, like the free people to Khaleesi and B. This actually is a new photo trend.

Logos


I somehow entered on this rabbit trail of these cool typography/design logos that I thought were so fun! I guess I never really paid attention to actual logos until I had to start thinking of my own logo...to me its so stressful - like how i imagine getting a tattoo would be. its why i never got one, how would i ever decide on something so permanent?
I also find that the more decisions I have to make lately the worse I get at making them. For instance, I'm deciding between 2 colors for my logo - and for the life of me...I can't decide. I'm overthinking things, you know? So its way more fun to look at everyone else's logos!

I also thought this brand identity design was amazing!
