cardboardcities crush – lizzy stewart

totally crushing on by

todays crush is lizzy stewart. i’ve admired her work for a good few years now. i really like love her style, it’s sweet and kind of quaint, but often has a touch of melancholy. something about it really touches my heart. i have one of her zines, ‘nomads’ and it’s definitely one of my favourites. i’m totally drawn into the world of her girls and she writes in such a poetic manner.

cardboardcities colour love: yellow

todays colour is yellow! check out red and orange.

i have to admit, this one was a little harder than the other two as i’m not a huge fan of yellow. it’s one of those colours i only like in specific shades. more on the warmer side, rather than, say, pastely yellow. even that is fine in small doses though! i do love most yellow flowers though. particularly buttercups. always makes me happy to see them. i think yellow is often a colour that works well in graphic imagery too though, i wonder why that is.

more bits and pieces.

following on from this post about my favourite bits and pieces, here’s some more photos i took of some of my favourite accessories (aside from brooches of course); rings and flowers for my hair. is there an actual name for these?

i’ve worn a flower in my hair for years now, and my head feels empty without one. i used to have a beautiful white one that looked like a real flower, but i lost it, which i’m still kind of upset about as i’ll probably never find one the same. i would love a few that look more life like, but they’re obviously out of my price range at the moment. if i don’t wear flowers, i wear my peacock headband, but i don’t have a photo of that. i always seem to get a lot of compliments when i’m wearing it too, so that’s kind of a bonus.

for a while i’ve wanted to do a photo post with some of my favourite little things, but for some reason i never got round to it. so, as it was sunny today i took some photos! actually i took quite a lot, so i’m saving the others for another post so i can spread them out a bit.

it’s weird how you can look at things in real life or photos and even if you like them, or they’re visually appealing to you they essentially they mean nothing to you. but for the owner there’s often great sentimental meaning, and that is something that doesn’t transfer across. yet at the same time, if you buy something instead of being given it, initially it often has no meaning, but over time you get used to seeing it ..or something happens and you associate that object with that moment or memory.
