Paris / Cake

I'm afraid I'm having a little eating disorder - see below. In this case it might have had something to do also with the lovely cakes they were selling in Paris (okay: The Broken Arm) (I'm just worried this name is gonna pop up way to many times on this blog the coming days) and okay I got a little help, but still.. is this normal??

Paris / The Broken Arm

So, about that great place called The Broken Arm. To begin with: their logo. Another geometric one (is it me or are they everywhere right now??), but since I'm a sucker for geometric shapes - as you've seen before - I love it. More photos to follow!

Paris / James

Remember I promised myself to be more brave? Well, I am slowly living up to that. See here the result - when (finally!) in The Broken Arm café in Paris (a great great store/café I will show you more about soon) I noticed James who was totally rocking this pink hat. Apparently it's not just the girls borrowing from the men's department.. Thanks James for brightening up a rainy afternoon :)

Miranda July:

"Look at the sky: that is for you. 
Look at each person's face as you pass on the street: 
those faces are for you. 
And the street itself, and the ground under the street 
and the ball of fire underneath the ground: 
all these things are for you. 
They are as much for you 
as they are for other people."

Can't wait!!!

2,5 more weeks to go...

The Granny Alphabet

Photographs by Tim Walker | verse by Kit Hesketh-Harvey

Described  by The Sartorialist as "one of the cutest, most sincere books on personal style I've ever seen" I was immediately drawn to this book. Remember Tim Walker's photography for Mulberry's Fall 2012/2013 campaign? Of course these are only a few examples of all the great photos shot by this man.

His latest book The Granny Alphabet celebrates the indomitable spirit of little old ladies who live down the lane. As Walker says in the book: "I've not been very good at growing up, but as I get older this seems to have been one of the better decisions life has made for me. To retain a child's eye when peering through the camera's viewfinder is to see the world as half magic, half horror. Old age brings back this childlike clarity of vision, and so children and the elderly have an agreement, a bond united both by a sense of being out of time and by the brilliantly reckless lack of responsibility that bookends adulthood and allows them to see things as they really are. This is why I've always loved the very old and the very young, whether in age or spirit, and why I've taken the photographs for this book - part a photographic love letter to the elderly and part documentation of they dying breed of little old ladies who live down the lane." Go check out this wonderful book!
