On MyParentsWereAwesome.com, you can find tons of pictures of parents in their younger days, when they were still awesome.  It’s a lot of fun browsing through the images and imagining their lives before they became parents.  You can also submit pictures of your own parents!tumblr_krwciwX8lJ1qa2fy3o1_500

Chris Craymer Romance

All of these pictures are out of Chris Craymer’s book Romance.  He photographed real life couples, with heart-fluttering results.  If you click the link, you can browse the 98 pages of the book, something you most certainly should do.

the hymn for the cigarettes

I barely have any time left to blog, let alone post photographs of my own (aside from the occasional concert pictures).  Therefor, I will try to share my favourite photographers with you, to keep this blog somewhat alive.  Hopefully I can do this at least once a week.  Now tell me, who are your favorite photographers?

WILD THINGS’ FORTS

wild_things_forts_06

Over at BOOOOOOOM!, they held a competition to win some exclusive goodies from the movie ‘Where the wild things are’  (which I am sooo excited for!), all you had to do was build a fort and send in pictures.  And boy, did they build forts.  So many beautiful pictures came out of it, I couldn’t wait to share.

THINGS THAT MAKE ME SMILE

  1. My milk toof, a supercute blog about the adventures of two baby teeth.nightmare_1

  3. This shirt.Pac-Man-T-Shirt
  4. The Day of Architecture in Flanders, when you can visit several buildings which wouldn’t be open to the public otherwise.  I volunteered as a photographer, I promise more photographs will follow soon!IMG_3975kopie
  5. My life is average.  I can spend hours browsing through all the submissions.
    Today, my sister and I were watching the fifth “Harry Potter” movie and my mom was on the computer. My sister was admiring the beauty of Hogwarts and said “Mom, why did we have to be muggles?” My mom replied without looking up from her computer “Speak for yourself, Squib.” Awesome. MLIA.
  6. Ilse‘s 100th post and giveaway!  Take a look.wit1
  7. Photographing my friend while dj’ing (is that even a word?) as Frecher Junge.

 


ALICE IN WATERLAND

Down the rabbit hole

If the title of my blog didn’t give away my love for Alice in Wonderland, maybe this post will.  The surreal world of Wonderland fascinates me like no other, and combining this with underwater photography, makes it even better.   Sugarock made this amazing set called Alice in Waterland, among other underwater projects that all of you certainly have to take a look at.  Excuse me for the ridiculous amount of pictures in one post, I couldn’t just pick a few, since they’re all marvellous.  If you want to see all 25 photographs, take a look at her flickrpage!Alice

HOERA! HIP HANDWERK.

flyer

When I visited the ModeMuseum Hasselt, they were hosting an indoor designer market called ‘HOERA! Hip Handwerk.’

IMG_3341I will devote this post to sharing my personal favourites.

MR LAPINNMr. Lapin sells lovely brooches (my best friend bought this one as a gift for me!), cute earrings, and adorable etuis.  The illustrations of Mr. Lapin (which you can find on the site) are pretty amazing aswell.  I couldn’t not include this one, quoting The Subs.

LOVELY MARIQUITAAt Lovely Mariquita, you can find the cutest polkadotted skirts and colourful stuffed animals.  Everything she sells just screams ‘cute’!

ART MIND1Art Mind‘s babushka-shaped ceramics express all kinds of emotions.  It’s amazing how many of these little postures she made, all expressing different feelings.  She also makes beautiful hairpins, rings, etc. with this babushka silhouette.

IMG_3367I’ve known Titi + The German Kid‘s stuff for quite some time now, back then she sold tanktops with hand-drawn illustrations, often personalised for the buyer, right now I like her I heart him and I heart her tank tops the most, all though her knitted frisco’s (does that word even exist in english?) and owls are pretty cute too.  Unfortunately I couldn’t find anything about Polly Rocket on the internet, but I do remember her cute knitted robots and penguins.

As you can see, there are a few designers left that I didn’t mention, unfortunately I didn’t take pictures of every stand and I don’t recall all of their names either… But I’m sure you found something you like between my picks!

IN HER SHOES

Last Sunday, me and my best friend visited the exhibition ‘In her shoes’ at the Modemuseum Hasselt (fashion museum in Hasselt).  IMG_3339

Obviously, this was an exhibition about shoes, shoes, shoes, and… more shoes.

DESIGNERSHOESExtremely expensive designer shoes….  (Pay attention to THE Manolo’s from the Sex and the City movie!)

rem d koolhaas

… architectural shoes…  (Rem D Koolhaas is NOT the same person as the famous architect Rem Koolhaas, it’s his nephew!)

unknown

…beautiful shoes from less famous designers…

helena rietjens… pumps and boots with fabulous decorations…

ellen verbeek

… versatile boots…

VERBAND

… and more conceptual shoes.  You name it, they’ve got it!

highThe shoes were divided into high…

low… and low…

… and were surrounded with the glamour they diserve.

You can find more information at the website of the museum, In Her Shoes will be staying in Hasselt until November 8.

PS.  I apologize for the sometimes poor quality of the pictures!  The museum was rather dark and I couldn’t always use flash since several shoes were behind glass…  I also apologize for not always adding the name of the designer, I don’t remember all of the rather unknown designers.

This collaboration between Macushla Burke and Kelly Smith has been in my inspiration folder for quite some time now.  The pictures have been on many many blogs, but I still felt like I had to do them justice and post them aswell.  The dreamy photography of Macushla in combination with Kelly Smith’s surreal illustrations is just p-e-r-f-e-c-t.
