A Visual Life – The Sartorialist

The Sartorialist is on of my favourite photography/style blogs for ages. Intel decided to make a 7 min documentary about Scott Schumann, the man behind this incredibly popular blog. It’s gives a beautiful insight in what he does, how and why:

Life on Sundays – blog

Earlier this week I discovered a new blog through twitter, called Life on Sundays. It’s a wonderful collection of pictures posted daily, all in this hazy, blurry and romantic style which I happen to love. It found out @ferryv, someone I talk to on Twitter sometimes, is behind it and he just started it two weeks ago. IF you like some of the pictures below, make sure you check out more on the blog.

Warning: cute overload

Earlier this week I came across the video below and I feel that everyone I know MUST watch this. Meet Marcel the Shell, the cutest, little animation I have seen. Marcel is the love child of Jenny Slate’s and Dean’s (Fleischer-Camp) creative minds, which you can read more about here. I really hope we can expect more of these animated shots soon!

My first Amsterdam International Fashion Week

…was quite nice. Stupidly enough sitting front row at the closing show of the week does make you feel special for those 15 minutes. I was lucky enough to see some pieces from the deceased designer Percy Irasquin, whose work is amazing still. This was my view:

Chris Anderson reads my posts!

As mentioned before I sometimes blog for TEDxAmsterdam, the little sister of TED. It seems that we are being watched by our big brother though. Chris Anderson, curator of TED and nr. 7 in Fast Company’s most creative people 2010, apparently reads our TEDxAmsterdam posts as well. Today he tweeted about super talented Emma Bruns and her endearing story, a post that I have written. For me personally it’s is great to talk with and get to know so many great people that are involved with TEDxAmsterdam and that people actually read what I write. For Emma it’s awesome to see that her story a year after presenting is still spreading. Just a few of the reasons why I love TED and the internet!

I’m blogging somewhere else too

I love TED, and have been lucky enough to visit the very first edition of TEDxAmsterdam. Wanting to get more involved, I contacted the organisation and now I’m actually part of it. Amongst others, I’ll be blogging a bit and this week my first contribution was posted. Check it out:
