This week has been a good one to say the least. It started with an Amazing Race-style event that ended in a completely unexpected proposal by my boyfriend of 10 years. Then the HelloGiggles team let me know that an article I wrote has been published on their website. I've been going on their website since I discovered New Girl and started fangirling over Zooey Deschanel, so I . . .
Happy New Year! May this year be a wonderful one. One where we learn more, create more, love more. Reach goals instead of simply making resolutions. Embrace change, spread kindness, and explore the unknown. I'm excited for the year ahead - enjoy 2016! . . .
IT'S CHRISTMAS WEEK! DAY 6/7 I bet some of you were feeling like this when you woke up this morning... Via Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards . . .
These caught my eye as it brought me back to the time when I used to collect bottles and place in them little keepsakes - sand, a feather, a note to myself. Now if I could bottle anything, it would be hope, dreams, and the wish that there would be more love and less hate. More happiness and less sorrow. More acceptance and less fingers pointed. Something needs to change in the world that we . . .
Being in Shanghai, you see things that you never thought you would. You hear about stories that are way too close for comfort. I mean...we recently had a food scandal where they found that people were distributing millions of dollars worth of meat from the 1970s. Read here if you don't believe me. They can fake eggs, watermelons explode, and we have dead pigs floating down the river - but all . . .
Didn't exactly think that I'd be quoting Mark Zuckerberg, but I do like his definition of happiness. "To me, happiness is doing something meaningful that helps people and that I believe in with people I love. I think lots of people confuse happiness with fun. I don't believe it is possible to have fun every day. But I do believe it is possible to do something meaningful that helps people every . . .
I have a confession. I have been a terrible blogger. Disappearing for months without a word - shock horror. If I ever go missing again and you miss me a little (I think too highly of myself), do check out my Instagram for some art, design and fashion pictures I spot around the place. So where have I been for the last couple of months? My roles and responsibilities at work got bumped up . . .

It's such a refreshing change to go into a place and see that every single corner has been branded properly. #designsnob you might say (accentuated by the cool hashtagging and all), but that's what working in an agency for years does to you. Roots & Bulbs does it exactly that - London's first cold pressed juice bar - with the help of branding agency Robot Food. Juicing is the industry to be . . .
“It’s not you, it’s me.” How many times have you heard that? Not too many, one would hope… Portugal-based graphic designer Wasted Rita created a collection of breakup letters. Despite the seemingly cruel messages, the humour and quirky typography is something to be admired. She is self-described as "a natural born agent provocateur, sarcastic as needed and a full-time thinker who must write about . . .
