1.   Eyes - Kascade
2.   Princess of China - Coldplay Feat Rihanna
3.   We found love - Rihanna Feat Calvin Harris
4.   Me and You - Nero
5.   Turning Tables - Adele
6.   Titanium - David Guetta Feat Sia
7.   Blinding - Florence and the Machine
8.   Up All Night - Blink 182
9.   Good Morning Killer - Shadow Club
10. Top Of The World - The Cataracs


Been seeing lots of facet-slash-triangle-slash-whatever you call them shapes lately. Contemporary with a little retro throw back - love it!

Denim on denim

Fell in love with denim all over again when I saw RiRi on an episode of X-factor last night. She looked casual chic in a faded denim shirt and jeans, paired with nude heels and gold accessories. Never been a fan of denim on denim, but I'm loving this look! Rihanna's next album, Talk That Talk, will be in stores November 21st. Can't wait!

For the doodle lovers


These days It's really hard to stand out in an endless sea of blogs. So when you discover something distinctive, you know that it's a gem...

Let me introduce you to the Notebook Doodles. This talented blogger makes anyone's penmanship look like chicken scratch! In her notebooks, she reveals bits and pieces of her life as well as inspirational quotes - all of which are handwritten! If you want to carry around a tiny reminder of these doodles, you can download free iphone wallpapers here.

Zesty Orange

Zesty orange, ripe mango, rich pumpkin... whatever you wanna call it - bold orange is one of springs statement color trends. These casual looks are from H&M (left) and J.Crew. Love the combination of blue and orange. So amped for summer!


Been stuck in bed for the past two days with the flu, so I'm sorry for the lack of posts. For some reason over the past year, I’ve been getting sick way too often. Not “rush me to the hospital” sick, just “I can’t get out of bed” sick! Literally spent 2 whole days sleeping and watching entire seasons of Grey’s Anatomy. Sounds pretty awesome, I know. But it made me realise how much I love my job and how much being a designer means to me.. was actually happy to be back at work this morning :)

Anyways, If you are a fan of Keep Calm, you will love the 'Keep Calm-o-matic' which allows you to generate your own slogans, like I did above. Try it out here

The Print Collection

How pretty is this packaging? Stella McCartney has matched her signature fragrance to her runway with a limited-edition trio called ‘The Print Collection’. The bottles are dressed with antique botanical prints and vivid, rich colours from her Spring 2011 Resort Collection. Love how the ad captures the narrow bridge between fashion and perfume. If you like floral scents or you are already a fan of the original, these would be a great edition to your dressing table!

♡ Dave ♡

South Africa has spoken. Dave Van Vuuren is the season 7 Idols winner! Was beyond happy when his name was announced :) I have been a huge fan since day one. My favourite performance of his was Don McLean's 'Vincent'. Check it out. Amazing
