Let's play pretend: favourite finds for little ones on Etsy.

Hey lovers...so I'm house bound due a a back injury. I know...sucky! But this also means i've had a lot of time to use my imagination to keep myself entertained, as there isn't much I can do from my bed. I also watched a TED talk, where the speaker referred to research saying kids spend on average 8 hours per day online. That is shocking! I remember, growing up in the 90's, in a small town, where taking your bicycle and going to play at your friend's house for 8 hours was normal. I played with Barbies until I was 13. I know for some people it seems late, even my mother was concerned, but really, for me, it was wonderful!

I loved playing with my best friend, we'd make up stories and scenarios, and explain to each other the situation between our leading lady and her man. Even playing (fighting) with my brother was fun, cause we'd kick each other, and run away. Obviously I could run after being the older and taller one. He's get so mad...oh man! I'm going to hell for the torture that boy was succumbed to.

So this reminiscing led me to creating a colourful and fun kid's treasury on Etsy called 'Let's play pretend'. You can see the treasury here. These are all thing I've found which are fun, but also encourage imagination, creativity and smiles! Click on the Etsy treasury link to see the products, shop owners and listings.

Are you a cowboy or an indian, 
a superhero or a sailor? 
You can be anything you want to be, remember?  
It's all up to your wildest imagination.

Photographer profile: Can Dagarslani

Turkish photographer Can Dagarslani didn't study photography. Instead he studied architecture and became increasingly interested in photography when photographing different landscapes that would be used in architectural plans. Eventually the digital camera was put aside Can turned to the analog camera. Can now takes eeringly pretty pictures playing with light and form, his subjects being otherwise ordinary girls in extraordinary compositions. He seems to divide his time between Berlin and Istanbul.

You can see his full portfolio here.

Holding hands

Have you ever really held the hand of someone you love? Not just in passing, a loose link between you - but truly clasped, with the pulses of your wrists beating together and your fingers mapping the knuckles and nails like a cartographer learning a country by heart?

YSL was a lover

Yves Saint Laurent lived in Marrakesh for a while with his partner, and he owned property there where he would holiday. Every new year, he would send his his clients and friends a LOVE card. A simple, but great message.
Today these postcards are on display at the Majorelle Garden, a 12 acre botanical garden. Here are some which I was able to find online. These cards originated in the 1970's, and were personally drawn by the designer. A tradition he kept for the next 30 years.






Lacoste L!Ve Pop-Up

Lacoste has launched a new product in their Lacoste L!ve line that features an eye-popping fragrance. The preppy urban design abstractly illustrates a classic short sleeve polo shirt with a crocodile. Playing on perspective, the liquidly aroma is packaged in blue glass with inspiration drawn from the De Stijl art movement and Mondrian paintings.

What excites me much much more than the packaging is the handmade pop-up book designed to celebrate the launch, exploring scent pictorially. 
The book looks and feels a uni student's final year project, which is what makes it so damn splendid. The creative studio responsible for the pop up book is WILD Advertising. See it in full action in the video below.
