I’ve had a chaotic week – in all the right ways. I smashed out a boat-load of work [at work], met up with a pretty group of marketing geek-chic girls [!], and attended the launch of Marilyn Seyb [a new boutique opening at 100 Ponsonby Road]. I was blown away by the Wild Fox campaign imagery [above] and the new 2012 line from Deadly Ponies.
Needless to say – at the end of it all I was more than willing to welcome a Saturday morning lie-in and a trawl through the internet [without any particular goal other than satisfying my love for the aesthetically pleasing + inspiring]. Here’s a few of the links I loved:
