Vee Speers | Thirteen

Magical and dreamy, yet sometimes confusing and disturbing are the beautiful series of Vee Speers.

Last year I shared with you on my blog The Birthday Party series by the talented Australian photographer & artist Vee Speers (read my previous post here). Her amazing work has been exhibited and published all over the world.

Today I love the dreamy images of Vee Speers Thirteen series. 

During her daughter’s thirteenth year, she photographed her as her childhood was eclipsed by growing pains and a desire for independence.  The series of 13 images of her daughter as she turned thirteen, symbolizes the transformation from child to adolescent and highlight the desire for freedom at that age. 

These are thirteen absolutely gorgeous portraits taken against the exact same gray background as the earlier collection The Birthday Party.

A Fashionable Christmas | Normann Copenhagen Flagship Store

Now that it feels cold outside and the days are getting shorter, I'm realy looking forward to Christmas.

The Flagship Store by Normann Copenhagen is decorated for Christmas as from November.

This year, the theme is a merry fashionable Christmas where chic black and white are combined with elegant gold and silver.

Love the way they used the Pocket Organizers to make an Advent calendar in a fun way.

Flavourites Live 2014

In the beautiful former industrial factory Kromhouthal in North Amsterdam I admired last Saturday around 160 web shops with beautiful fashion, interior accessories and jewelry at the Event Flavourites Live. 
It felt like walking through a large covered souks!

One of my personal favourite was the Pikaplant: these are no-maintenance indoor plants. They recycle the water and air contained in their Jar. Also very innovative and beautiful to see were the wonderful Air Plants hanging perfectly along the large industrial windows. With Air Planting you plant your plants in the air instead of in a pot, and because the plant filters chemicals from the air and adds oxygen, you also plant fresh air. Maintenance: 1x weekly spraying with water. 
it was a fun shopping day and it's always nice to see the shop items in real life!
