Frida Kahlo

*photographer unknown
This woman never ceases to amaze me. Frida Kahlo inspires me with her art, style and how she lived her life so creatively despite personal suffering from an accident and her turbulent marriage to Diego Rivera.

I visited an exhibition of her work in Paris in 2014 - you can't compare her art work in a book or prints to the viewing, where you can see the true colours and lustre which are key components of most of her work.

“Maybe you are searching among the branches, for what only appears in the roots.”- Rumi

Rodarte Lace-Trimmed Lurex Dress

This dress from the Rodarte x & Other Stories colab makes me think of a starry night, science fiction meets femininity.

Petra, Jordan - February 2014

I travelled to Petra in Jordan in February 2014. I like this photo for its sense of mystery, design and graduated colours.

New York



I travelled to New York for just under a week in May 2015.  New York is certainly a place with its individual areas, think cultural and ethnic focused areas and a melting pot of ambition and activity.

Everyone there seems to walk a lot everywhere so if you have never been I recommend you travel there with at least a pair of comfortable flat shoes.  And yes honestly you will gaze in awe in midst of Manhattan at the skyscrapers.


I'll take Manhattan! May, 2015

Travels

Dear blog, I neglected you and a few other aspects of my life. I have had what I call a turbulent period recently which has slowly come to an end like a fabric which was rough and garish now faded to a soft colour and smoothed by the elements.

I hope to update you with some of my recent travels and discoveries.
