Kustaa Saksi’s Bold, Colorful SS15 Collection for Marimekko

Kustaa Saksi for Marimekko SS15

I’ve been a long time fan of Finnish artist Kustaa Saksi and his organic-feeling, nature inspired work. It’s been fascinating to see the evolution he’s taken over the years, though his most recent work may just be some of my very favorite – a collaboration with the legendary Marimekko.

Finnish artist Kustaa Saksi makes his Marimekko debut in the collection with the fascinating Merivuokko (sea anemone) and Meriheinä (sea grass) prints that are seen as fabric, home textiles and tableware. The prints were inspired by the rhythm, colours and atmosphere of the sea floor that he has experienced during his scuba diving trips. The Merivuokko pattern depicts the depth and abstract, clear forms of the sea and details of its flora and fauna. The free, swaying vegetation of the sea floor and its organized chaos, on the other hand, gave rise to the light, ethereal and moving Meriheinä print.

I love the range that his work has hit, going from homewares to fashion. It shows the versatility of his creativity and how these unique patterns can be used for some many fascinating applications. I don’t think the collection is out quite yet, so the trick is figuring out how to get one of those pillows below…

Britney's 'Blackout' Album Turns 7 Years Old Today: A Look Back

KV

honestly this is one of my favorite albums of all time and hands down britney's best. i could talk forever about this era of her life but instead let's just give Blackout a full listen this week and appreciate this genius pop album for what it is.

7 years ago today, Britney Spears' 'Blackout' came out. Let's take a look back at some highlights from Britney's least promoted, yet critically acclaimed era, which gave us the iconic phrase "It's Britney, bitch."



The Album

1. Gimme More
2. Piece of Me
3. Radar
4. Break the Ice
5. Heaven on Earth
6. Get Naked (I Got a Plan)
7. Freakshow
8. Toy Soldier
9. Hot as Ice
10. Ooh Ooh Baby
11. Perfect Lover
12. Why Should I Be Sad

The VMA Performance

Britney kicked off the Blackout era by performing "Gimme More', the album's lead single, at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards. Everyone remembers this performance, but not because of how good it was. This is Britney's only televised appearance during the 'Blackout' era.



The Music Videos

Britney only released three singles from 'Blackout'. 'Radar' was originally supposed to be the fourth single from 'Blackout', but plans for its release were scrapped due to Britney's lack of involvement in promoting the album, coupled with the fact that she had already begun work on her follow-up album, 'Circus'. 'Radar' was included on 'Circus' and released as the fourth single for that album.

The video for 'Gimme More' is most famous for being a rushed, poorly-shot mess which features Spears dancing around a stripper pole. The song peaked at number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.



The 'Piece of Me' video is most famous for featuring shots of a digitally altered Spears. This video won Britney the Best Female Video, Best Pop Video, and Video of the Year awards at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards. The song peaked at number 18 on the Billboard Hot 100.



The video for 'Break the Ice' was Britney's first animated video. The song peaked at number 43 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Benedict Cumberbatch's Wax Figure Is Eerily Realistic

KV

i look a lot like benedict cumberbatch but i look EVEN MORE like his wax figure u___u

It doesn't take a genius detective to realize that the new Maddam Tussauds wax figure of actor Benedict Cumberbatch is extremely well done.

Unveiled Tuesday in London, the lifelike rendition of the British "Sherlock" star already had women crawling all over it during a photo-op, which included primping, photobombing and selfies galore.

The 37-year-old actor's waxwork will reportedly be placed in the A-list section of the tourist attraction alongside such icons as Dame Judi Dench, Kate Winslet, Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp, according to the Express.

"What a weird and wonderful compliment to be included in the ranks of those already committed to wax," Cumberbatch said when he was measured for the figure over the summer. "I've been accused of being wooden in my work but never waxy."

Stream Jessie Ware Tough Love

by Stereogum
KV

so goooood

The great British soul singer Jessie Ware is a week away from giving us Tough Love, her sophomore album. She’s already been uncommonly generous with it, sharing the early tracks “Tough Love,” “Share It All,” “Say You Love Me,” “Want Your Feeling,” “Kind Of… Sometimes… Maybe,” and “Pieces,” as well as assorted clips and remixes. But now we finally get to hear the whole thing, all at once. The album features contributions from people like Miguel, Dev Hynes, and Ed Sheeran, and it plays like one long, extended swoon. Listen to it at NPR.

Tough Love is out 10/21 on Friends Keep Secrets/Interscope.

THANK YOU AMY THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU


Hello Everyone. Today I'm going to share with you pictures that didn't make it in to my daily post. Over the last couple of months. Some are just straight up funny. Then there some I think to myself. What in the world was I doing. As blogger we all have some kind of pictures like these. 
 Eye closed photo's. 
For some odd reason I close my eye a lot when taking blog photo's. It drive my husband up a wall. Also don't ask me what I was doing in the last photo because I have no idea. 
 Hair Flips/Fixing my hair.
I try my best to move my hair out from the front of my face. That way I can show off the earring I'm wearing. 
Open mouth picturesI wish I had an explanation for these photo's. I just don't. In no way or shape. I'm I trying to be Miley Cyrus. In other new when I have my mouth open I keep my eyes open. 
Blurry picturesSome time we can't get the camera in focus.
 Fixing myselfSometime I have to fix part of my outfit. Which that doesn't mean the camera stops rolling.
Last but not least two outfits. I took these photo for an outfit of the day post but they never made it to the blog. Due to I wasn't really happy with the outfits. 
Linking up with Franish for Blogger Blooper Reel. Link up doesn't start until 9-23-2014
HAVE A GREAT SUNDAY

I was one regular road again and saw people car in the ditch do to they slide off the road. Due to Germany roads can be very curvy. Which at that time that was the type of road I was on.

Hello Everyone. I hope you all have a great weekend. My was a full weekend with hang out with friends. I wore this outfit to the sip and see. Which let me tell you all my car anxiety kick in big time yesterday. Which this is one thing I have never talked about on the blog before.
I have really bad car anxiety. What this mean is when I have no clue where I'm going or haven't driven that way before. My car anxiety kick in and I freak out a little bit. This only happen when I'm driving by myself. So yesterday I was going to the sip and see. I had the address in the GPS on my phone. Well at one point it had me turn down this road. When I got half way down the road. There was no longer a road. Due to it was being worked on. I had no where to go. So I had to do an u-turn and pray that I did't end up in a dig. After  I made the u-turn. The GPS kept telling me to go back that way. That's when my car anxiety kick in. I end up pulling off the side of the road. Turn off the radio and pull out the big GPS. Thinking it would send me a different way but it didn't. Now I'm at the point I'm late and was thinking to myself I should just go back home. Which I didn't.
I finally saw detour sign. That I end up taking. Which it lead me to a dirt road. That I had to take. As I was on the dirt road I was slipping and sliding. Do to the the fact it was raining out. Mind you I wasn't even driving that fast. After I got off the dirt road. I  was one regular road again and saw people car in the ditch do to they slide off the road. Due to Germany roads can be very curvy. Which at that time that was the type of road I was on.  When I finally made it to where I needed to be. The street the house was on was up a huge hill. Which they was no way I could handle driving up it. So I park on the street at the bottom of the hill. Then walked in the rain to the party. Which I had an okay time at.  When I got back home my friend text me to make sure I made it home safe. Due to I told them all the crazy drive I had to get there. I thought it was super nice of her to check in on me. 

 I'm link up with Just Another Smith and This Ever Evolving Life for Skirt Week.HAVE A GREAT MONDAY

LOL you have to click through but ugh i love them omg

by Haley Mlotek

Listen. I love Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. I love them for purely nostalgic reasons—It Takes Two is a fucking classic—and I love them because The Row is consistently one of the most beautiful collections at NYFW and I love them because they know that if I had $4,000 to spend on a backpack I would absolutely buy their dumb $4,000 backpack. But right now I love them because it's very clear they don't know the difference between a video and a photo, and because Vanessa Friedman was there to capture their zen pre-show confusion, and because the whole thing is very endearing and also, really, quite soothing; let's just let this play on a loop all morning.
