 In a society where brands and labels define the quality of the items, I have realized some of my most used utensils are actually brand-less. The matte black mechanical pencil is honestly my favourite piece of them all - good weight, flawless body, and multiple functionality. Simple things are sometimes the best things...and every object placed in the right context can be beautiful.

P.S Being sick ultimately makes you feel sluggish and you may have the tendency to postpone the things you need to do. Get out of that bed and let's get shit done. Otherwise, you may be too comfortable with the thought that you will always have tomorrow.

I would like to live here one day. My Spanish (lo siento, mi español no es muy bueno) isn't the greatest, but hey, maybe the locals can teach me the way. Beautiful people, beautiful places.

Feeling kinda moody and uninspired lately. Maybe it's because I'm staring at a wall for 6 hours, 5 days a week. Regardless, just wanted to share some photos that inspired me to get my mojo back.

Discover the wonderful works of Lilla Balazs, the designer and CEO of Balilla accessories. 
Her minimalistic and architectural approach to accessories makes her jewelery modern yet timeless. Many respects to Lilla Balazs as each of her collections are handmade, designed, and sourced in London.
  
When I initially saw the first piece of the SS14 Collection, I knew right away that I was going to love it. The collection is characterized by innovative silhouettes and has an ethereal, yet still energetic atmosphere. I was intrigued by the fact that classic materials such as silk rope and leather worked in perfect harmony with high-tech materials such as pvc and acrylic. The source of inspiration behind the collection is the minimalistic architecture of the Japanese Fuse Atelier.

The SS14 Collection really hit the spot for me as I am a fan of anything with clean cut lines and leather, but all of her other collections are definitely something worth taking the time to see.

Everything and Nothing

Based off in London, Úna Burke just won me over with her SS14 collection, Everything and Nothing.The collection itself was inspired by shadow puppetry and the forms of aesthetics.

The installation was based on observations of how shadows would not be possible without light and how light would show nothing without the dense form of the puppet in front if it. It is interesting to see how positive and negatives spaces were used to create certain forms that are worn loosely around the body, which in effect gives a softer, lighter and fresher feel to the entire collection.
