Meet Anastasia – The Articulate

Someone who I’ve been ogling from afar (and who I was most flattered to find had been counter-ogling us from afar since last year!) is the super-talented, nimble-fingered and ever-humble Anastasia, known also under her creative name, The Articulate. Whenever I find people who follow their creative hearts, I always jump at the chance to speak to them face to face, talk to them…

Meet Claire – Ruck Rover General Store

Ruck Rover General Store has always been one of my places to go to find that perfect vintage-inspired sundress, or a unique present for your friend’s new bub (a bib with a Peter Pan collar – so hot right now!), or a great dude-gift amongst their ever-changing supply of funky t-shirts and socks. They moved from their premises in Mount Lawley two years ago…

Meet Jelena – Mr Sparrow

A few weeks ago we went and paid a visit to Jelena, the owner and keen-eyed curator of Mr Sparrow. Mr Sparrow is conveniently located in Subiaco and is one of my absolute go-to stores for many, many reasons. It simply, practically and beautifully always has the answer to my present-buying woes! Overflowing with irresistible gift ideas for the home and garden, I never leave…

This girl – Dana Tanamachi

Dana Tanamachi’s work just makes me swoon. I frequently dabble in freehand lettering (I was most prolific during my school and uni days as it whiled away boring classes and lectures like nothing else) but I cannot compare to this jaw-droppingly talented girl! Dana is a Brooklyn-based graphic designer and letterer and the creative force behind design & lettering boutique, Tanamachi Studio. She has…

Kyle Hughes-Odgers interview + exhibition review

Last Friday Jinn attended the opening of Kyle Hughes-Odgers’ exhibition “A Thousand Lights From A Hundred Skies” (so jealous!). He got the chance to have a chat with the talented artist himself about his work and inspiration behind it. I wish with all my heart I could have been there too! See what he wrote about the evening below.  “I love your stuff man.”…

There’s no aphrodisiac…like chocolate!

Eleta (aka The Bunny!)

Meet Eleta – the owner and creator of The Bunny, purveyor of fine handmade goodies that have a hint of quirkiness and individuality, achieved by using a clever mix of vintage and new elements. This online store (and now real-life summer market stall) was established in early 2011 and has already started making a ripple amongst Perth’s fashion and accessory lovers. I came across…
