Anyone who has followed this blog or my Instagram for some time knows that I have a love affair with color. I’m someone whose mood is very influenced by color. (My mood is also very influenced by the weather, but that’s besides the point.) This photo shoot collaboration between photographer Joanna Henderson and interior prop stylist Charlotte Love for Heart Home Magazine is so wonderfully cheery I thought it apropos to share at the beginning of the week.

I hope your week is going swimmingly and if it’s not you still have three more days to turn it around!

Something fun

Happy Friday! Here’s a fun video for Fuji Instax I found the other day. I’ve always loved stop motion videos and this one just hits it out of the park. Daniel Castro, the photographer who shot the video, was also the mastermind behind this shoot. I really love the imagination he pours into his work.

I hope you have a great weekend and have some fun activities lined up to do. Today I’m showing Lauren–who’s visiting from Savannah, GA–around SF, Saturday I’m helping Giovanna prepare her (ALL CHOCOLATE!) brunch and Sunday I’m going to West Coast Craft. I don’t usually have something planned every. single. day. of the weekend, but this time it just worked out that way. Let me know if you have any fun plans this weekend!

Nothing says good ol’ California than these photographs shot by one of my very favorite photographers Amber Byrne Mahoney. (I’ve featured her in the past here and here.) I love the loose ’70s theme going on here too. Makes me want to watch The Brady Bunch!

People tend to look down on clichés, but I’ve always believed clichés are clichés for a reason. Take for example the theme of flowers. I know flowers are done a lot–some may argue flowers in pictures has been overdone, but I don’t think I’ve ever encountered a picture of flowers I didn’t like.

Tell me you don’t like these photographs by Zhang Jingna for Phuong My‘s Spring Summer 2015 collection and the Overgrowth project by Parker Fitzgerald and Riley Messina. Both sets of photographs deal with flowers as their central focus, but they are so different in their treatment of colors, composition and overall tone. That’s why I don’t think anyone should ever look down on clichés. There are always an infinite amount of possibilities in every creative endeavor.

Lily-Rose Depp seems to be in the news a bit lately. And there’s a reason why. The girl’s just gorgeous, which isn’t surprising considering she’s the daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis–are those good genes are what?! These dreamy photos Dana Boulos took of Lily-Rose for Oyster Magazine (her first fashion shoot!) are quite easy on the eyes. And on a Monday, I need something easy on the eyes. (Who am I kidding? I’ll look at beautiful photography any day!) In addition to the photos, Oyster Magazine did an interview with Lily-Rose.

According to the interview, Lily-Rose’s beauty secret is she uses blush as eyeshadow, if she could have any superpower she’d want the ability to fly and she’s more of an “lol” than “haha” girl via text. Lily-Rose is going to be making her film debut in a movie with her dad in June. I’m curious to see what more is to come from her.

I first encountered Lissy Elle‘s photography a few years ago, but just recently revisited her work and discovered the past three campaigns she shot for children and women’s Japanese clothing boutique, fafa. The set design looks like such a whimsical world! A place where I imagine Peter Pan would live.

I’m super behind the times just now discovering this campaign video Jimmy Marble made for Kate Spade Saturday in December of last year, but it’s not toooo wintry-ish, so I thought I’d share it even though it’s a few months after the video was released. It’s a fun video too, so it’s almost springlike to me. Sharing a video from December in March = justified.

Do you ever get so absolutely inspired by something you can hardly think straight? That’s how I feel after looking at these pictures and watching this video. Those color combinations! And the styling! And pretty much everything about this video is so awkwardly, quirkily and whimsically perfect. Does that make any sense? I don’t know. I’m in visual heaven. *swoon*

PS. I know, I know, I’ve been on a major pastel kick as of late; I can’t help myself!
