Found: the artist of my moment

Firstly, HEADS UP I slightly intoxicated by a tablet that has is indicated to have a mild sedative effect. My head is feeling heavy but I am determined to share my discovery of my favourite artist. I will do as it says and avoid driving heavy machinery but that does not mean I may not crash this blog into the ground before it had a chance.  

Discovered. Artist. BelindaFox. 

I came across Belindas work when I had worked extremely hard and recieved my bonus and I bravely thought… I would invest in art… dream on M. Like now, I was on a high and in the pursuit for an artwork that inspired and of natural beauty with an element of disorder. I wanted it provoke uncertainty. When I discovered belinda fox I stopped looking. I cannot afford her work but she is my background. I will pay her back eventually.

Do you want her too ? 

” Belinda Fox works are exquisitely crafted explorations of the duality of human nature. The tenuous notion of balance, the potential for both creation and destruction, hope and despair and beauty and decay. “

Wax, paint, watercolour, print, silk…

Her collections include the National Gallery of Australia.

In three words: Beauty Quality Design.

EX VOTO PARIS

Addiction or love?  I cannot decide if I am in love with Ex voto Paris or just fallen in love.

Initially I was attracted to the uncluttered, sleek approach to design design of but was soon addicted to the pure shapes,elegant fragrances and stylish colours. From the sensuality of Black Amber to refreshing Ginger Laces with lotus blossom, from the elegant Deep Leather to velvety Neroli, all the subtle fragrances are created in Grasse, in the south of France, the worlds Perfume capital. Ex Voto Paris founder and designed, Nathalie Paillarse, marries these exquisite aromas with minimalist packaging, uncluttered, but aglow with sensuous detail. “Beauty, quality and design” are the underlying concepts of Nathalie Paillase inspiration and she kept true with her pure shapes and elegant palettes of colours and subtle aromas.

One minute. Puff Pastry. Butter. Vegeeeease

VeryExcitingNews. this is the easiest fastest, most delicious dinner that can be made in one minute flat + cooking time. & it is 100% satisfying.

I was sitting at home. feeling perfectly sunday exhausted.  After waking early (and baking breakfast for the boyfriend, i went to lifesaving. after five hours of sitting in the sun and eyes on the water I felt the need for culture. I visited Eugene Atget – old paris at the national art gallery.

Before home I stopping off at messina for a peanutbutter&maltbiscuit ice cream and provide a padded shoulder to comfort a broken hearted friend. There is nothing like ice cream for drying tears at any age. By the time I got home, the cool change came through, my clove candle was lit and I needed dinner.

I am not a fan of take out. if someone else is to cook for me it delivered on a white plate and dining experience; whether thats a dinner party or a cafe. plastic containers, cardboard boxes or paper bags are only used on those very few, rare occasions especially when there is food in the fridge. 

But nothing looked more unappealing than the endings of the weeks vegetables and meals. 

I needed something warm, tasty  quick, easy and flavoursome. Using only one tray, one pan, one pair of scissors and 10 minutes later I was tucking into dinner.
