Jessica’s Style: Light & Bright

Oct-19-Jessicas-Style-small

With Summer peeking around the corner, it’s a nice time to update your look with some light, bright shades. Be it with some sandals, a blouse or a handbag. It’s not quite hot enough to lose the jacket, but maybe choose a light tan instead of black.

I love having light coloured nails (6) with some lighter accessories. Why not pair this statement necklace (2) over a plain white tee, jeans and some heels (13) to look put together but not overdone.

Hope you’re having a lovely week!

1. Layered crystal necklaces 2. Tribal inspired statement chain necklace 3. Nude bomber jacket 4. 6KS Geometric Sweater 5. Look from Ellen Claesson 6. Nailmatic polish in ‘Nana’ 7.

Weekend Tunes: Lion Babe

Lion_Babe_Marquee1

You know when you find something and it makes you want to jump out of your chair and kiss your computer screen? Well yip, that’s (almost) what I did when I discovered Lionbabe. With a hand clapping, soulful sound, reminiscent of Erykah Badu with a dash of Kelis. I like it, I like it a lot.

Weekend Tunes: Banks

banks I stumbled across Banks a few weeks ago (as you do) and it’s been pretty much been in my headphones non-stop. She is from LA in the States and you can buy her album here (which you should). Also, how amazing is the typography she’s used for her name?! Love. It.

Here’s two of her tracks that I love (another ‘Fuck Em Only We Know’ I couldn’t find on Soundcloud but go listen to that too).

Happy weekend!

Love Your Mug

Theres nothing I quite like more than having my own mug on my desk during the day! I’ve started a new contract this week, and I’ll definitely be taking my Meadowlark for SPCA mug into the office for my coffee.

Here are some of my favourite vessels.

Clockwise from top left: Stay Focussed mug from Click & Blossom, Madame mug from Crushes at The Bread & Butter Letter, Best Job In The World mug from Click & Blossom, Love Cats mug by Meadowlark for SPCA New Zealand.

Change Your (Desk)Top

Desktop-Download Seeing as it’s nearly the beginning of Spring (yes!!) I recently gave my hard drive a spring clean; I tidied my desktop, organised files (even the misc. one *shudder*) and I updated my desktop.

So, I thought I would put together a sweet as little round up of my favourite desktop papers that I like to use. You know, because sharing is caring and you deserve to have pretty stuff to look at during the day.
