That set of images of Abbey Lee Kershaw for Versace are incredible, the gowns are stunning and Abbey herself looks amazing. I’ve had a pretty quiet week myself. I did visit Google for an Adwords training (their New Zealand office isn’t exciting as we’ve come to expect from Google, but it is flash), started cooking more (attempting to cut down on takeaways), and fell in love with mocha’s. I also created a Facebook page, so please do fan my new Facebook page if you’re into that! :>
This Week in Fashion, Blogging & Etc.
- Even more tips on finding the right balance and stopping the ‘blogging monster’ from taking over. Good, sound advice.
- Plenty of tips and tricks for outfit photos in this post on Photoshop tips and tricks for photo retouching.
- When AsheMischief asked on Twitter what the pros & cons of using a pseudonym online (a “fake name” or “mask”) I weighed in. She’s written a great post in response to this issue that touches on both sides of the argument.
- Web design tips and advice from A – Z. Super clever.
- The best cocktail bars in NYC, I’m hoping to visit a few of these. The Raspberry Rogue at Apotheke looks amazing.
- The Man Repeller on the latest addition to the inner-wear as outerwear trend, bedroom slippers. I have to admit, by the end of the post I could see velvet slippers taking off.
- Are you a Pinterest or Tumblr kind of girl? (I’m very much absorbed in Pinterest.)
- Sick of feeling intimidated when you walk into a high end retail store? Read this.
- Blake Lively looks incredible in the latest Chanel campaign.
- I am really into these desktop & dresser DIY’s.
- I have to admit that Vahni was right when she said ‘Ever since Greg Shove mentioned Klout at the Independent Fashion Bloggers Evolving Influence Conference last month, bloggers in my circle have been in a tizzy about the meaning and impact of this little number.’ So Vahni’s broken down Klout and explained how it works in a really easy to understand format.
My heart goes out to Japan, it seems like we are only just recovering from the Christchurch earthquake here in New Zealand when one even more violent hits overseas. I hope that none of my readers (or their friends and family) have been caught up in this massive series of earthquakes… and if you, or anyone you know has been then I wish for their safety.
