    ILLUSTRATIONS :: LOVISA BURFITT

     

    I adore beautiful illustration and it was a delight to discover the beautiful work of  Lovisa Burfitt.  Lovisa is a Swedish illustrator based in France who describes her illustrations as meticulous in details, a clash of poetry, punk and playfulness. Her drawings of fashion, food, and travel are a balance of ink and graphite line with watercolour.

    If you are interested in knowing more about Lovisa and her work, Fashionarium has a lovely and insightful interview here.

    Crown Princess Mary of Denmark :: an Aussie gal

     

    Crown Princess Mary has opened up about her fairy tale transformation from Tasmanian girl-next-door to future Queen Consort of Denmark in an interview with The Australian Women’s Weekly.

    Mary: From commoner to Crown Princess

    “I never for a moment thought I’d end up living in Denmark and married to the Crown Prince but he obviously was my missing piece.

    Crown Princess Mary is on the cover of the 80th birthday issue of Women’s Weekly, Australia. Mary says she wasn’t seeking fame when she met Crown Prince Frederik in a Sydney bar in 2000, and is constantly surprised by how her life has turned out.  For an insight into the shoot, A day in the life of Crown Princess Mary visit  a story by Juliet Rieden here.

    late running whites rabbits and falling and falling…

     

    I have been falling for five minutes, and I still can’t see the bottom! Hmph!  Well, after this I should think nothing of falling down stairs, said Alice as she falls down the rabbit hole and her dress poofs up like a parachute!

    I have felt like I have been down the rabbit hole for the past few weeks! Everything was topsy turvy ~ each day was full of unexpected pleasures and unexpected challenges.

    And so, inspired to share this wonderful Vogue editorial by photographer superstar Annie Leibovitz.

    I’m late, I’m late

    For a very important date

    No time to say “Hello, Goodbye”.  

    I’m late, I’m late, I’m late.
