Meet the goats of Southworth located off the Southworth ferry boat dock across from West Seattle.
Why are goats so dang cute? The funniest animals and always entertaining to watch, they never disappoint.
I adore this branding and interior design by Biasol in Austrailia for Kitty Burns based on a historic story. The concept of Kitty Burns is a tale of two sisters in Australia. The playful character and rich history of the Skipping Girl, nicknamed “Little Audrey” and also known as the “Vinegar Girl” create the concept and title of Kitty Burns. The original Skipping Girl was modeled on 5 year old Kitty Minogue in 1915 when her brother sketched her in a winning competition entry for the vinegar company. An updated version of the skipping girl was recreated a short time later where in fact the elder sister of Kitty Minogue, Alma Burns was used to create the current Skipping Girl seen today.
Kitty Burns was born out of tying their two names together to create a fictional character – reminiscent of the rich history of the area that reflects the serene, quiet yet playful nook where the spirited sisters liked to skip. Kitty Burns is conveyed as a home away from home for the residents of an apartment complex. A pitched roof design was introduced and incorporated into all elements of the project. The home concept was also carried through into the brand identity inspired by The Skipping Girl story creating a dual personality for the brand. The contrasting elements of the Kitty Burns personality are creatively woven into every design element- Kitty’s fun loving, playful personality, juxtaposed with Burns’ more serious and structured side.
The legacy of the two little girls that loved to skip can now be remembered through the name Kitty Burns.
There are few things more important to us first thing in the morning than a morning espresso. It’s often the deciding factor in our daily disposition. Can’t think of a better place to get it than from this beautiful little pop-up cafe in Auckland.
Creatista Café is the brainchild of Nespresso. The space boasts Scandinavian-esque interior, there’s a sofa, lounge chairs and even a dining room table. It’s like sitting in your living room. Beautiful design, branding and product.

Today I really need to be in a place like this. The Faroe Islands are beautiful, majestic and unimaginable untouched. These images evoke a dreamlike state of mind that I want to fall into and experience the solitude. Peace be with you.
Life has been a bit hectic lately so I’m channeling my new November attitude; simple and relaxed.
November means ‘the ninth month’ so why is it actually the 11th month in the year? The calendar used in the Western world today is the Gregorian calendar. It came into being in 1582 when Pope Gregory XIII accepted the system proposed by Aloysius Lilius. The original Roman year (from which both the Julian and Gregorian calendars are based) had only ten months and it was Numa Pompilius, a King of Rome around 700 BC, who added January (Januarius) and February (Februarius).
Came across this entertaining Design History website, where has it been all my life. Love it, can’t enough of it. It’s like falling through the proverbial rabbit hole and getting happily stuck there.
