Favourites, Modern Life

The Lighter Things Of The World Pt. 3

There is something in the air. In almost all of the social media content we are consuming right now, it seems that everyone has caught the ‘down bug.’

New reports on a second wave of lockdown and the seemingly insurmountable virus, the jitters from sitting on the couch for far too long, the unexpected weight gain, and just the general uncertainty around the future/our whole entire lives is proving to be a little challenging.

While it’s okay to acknowledge these anxious feelings, it is even more important to remember the light and brightness of the world.

Without further ado, here are some for your consideration.

The Celebrity 2020 Mood Challenge

2020 has brought #alltheemotions. We started the year feeling hopeful, we rode the wave of the unexpected, we embraced the change, and now we are not so sure where May, June, July and August have gone and moreover, when everything will be okay again.

The Celebrity 2020 mood challenge has swept instagram and it has us feeling more and more reassured that whatever is going on, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling are in this with us. And that is important information.

Food Paintings

Is this a thing that people are already obsessing over, or is it just us?

We recently discovered a range of food paintings on our instagram feed, and quite frankly we cannot look away (or stop print screening).

Some of our favourites are by Noah Verrier and Kate Jarvik Birch.

Take a look.

(We could keep going … but it’s probably best we stopped)

Kendall Jenner’s Cozy L.A. Hideaway

Architectural Digest has just uploaded a YouTube video with Kendall Jenner, showing off her LA Lockdown Hideaway – and we cannot stop thinking about it.

The strange fluro pink circle at the entrance, the painting room, the bathroom sink made from a rock and the gold bath are some highlights.

It is super homey and lovely and if you’re a sticky-beak, a great watch.

You can watch it here.

By Papaya Earrings

By Papaya is a small family Etsy business run by three sisters from Leicester, England. They make jewellery, stationary and artwork and their designs are as cute as a button.

All of their jewellery has been handmade since June this year and is inspired by bright colours, juicy fruits and quirky shapes.

Even if you’re just wearing a track suit everyday, these earrings would still be the perfect accessory.
