What I am up to…

Yes yes, I have been somewhat neglectative (is that even a word? Spellcheck says no…) of Stella Was A Diver of recent times. I’m sorry. I have many a-project on the go in work life , in regular life and all forms of life betwixt.

If you hop on over to my new photo blog one photo each day you will see that, in an attempt to get back into doing photography, I am documenting my entire life by taking one photo each day.

I am now also writing all about social media goodness and creativeness on a new collaborative project. That link will follow when there’s a bit more content and stylings sorted.

On the weekend, I “did some culture” and visited the National Portrait Gallery to see, as I do every year, the Photographic Portrait Prize. There’s some amazing photography there, go see it while you can. Some of my favourites below…

(note that the colours and prints are much more incredible “in real life”)

I also made it to The Photographers Gallery, happily settled in its new backstreet Soho home. What a lovely venue. Slightly depressing exhibition subject matter at the moment, however.

Tomorrow, I am very much looking forward to going to see Shutter Island (hooray for having film clients!), there’s some trailerlove for you below. Looks good, no? AND I intend to check out Damien Hirst’s new exhibition at White Cube Hoxton soon. Seeing as I can see it from my desk I think “why not?!”


My Parents Were Awesome

MPWA

Ooooooh, came across My Parents Were Awesome a few days ago and meant to blog it – essentially a lovely little photoblog with user-submitted pictures of their parents, back in the day, looking…AWESOME!

Today I mostly love Trend Hunter

Trend Hunter

Today I have a lot of love for Trend Hunter who I often find are linking to me.

Where else would you find articles entitled Cougar Rom Coms and Counterculture Bibles rubbing shoulders with Origami Tea Bags and 21 Constricting Corsets?

Loving your work 🙂

And just for the record, I was actually wearing a pair of ‘jeggings’ today…

A quick fix of nice links

trashy pin-up cups

Due to my busy-ness, here are a couple of links that I liked the look of this week…

  1. Trashy Pin-Up Art gallery over at Trendhunter
  2. Ironically amusing collection of hints & tips from trashy womens mags at the Hero of Switzerland blog
  3. Random sandwiches at insanewiches.com
  4. Nice tilt-shift time-lapse animation of a beach
  5. flickr gallery of hand drawn-on cups

Lovely!


More Post-it Note Love

Post-it Note Stories

Stella Was A Diver loves Post-it Notes and here is the latest Post-it innovation, Post-it Note Stories, a blog of stories created entirely on Post-it notes.

How many more times can I use the name ‘Post-it Notes’ in this post…?


Things Marketing People Love

Two-hour client lunches, telling people how late they worked last night, urban scavenger hunts in big cities with a digital tie in (oh I have run one of these already…!) thingsmarketingpeoplelove.blogspot.com is possibly my favourite website of the month, if not a little too close to the bone…

Funny.

Gorgeous (mostly) black & white photographs of impossibly cool people at http://theimpossiblecool.tumblr.com

Very pretty.
