Girl power

04 July 2017

How great is this poster? It's free to download from The House That Lars Built and it's by illustrator Libby VanderPloeg. I'm going to print a copy and save it for the little studio space that I'm slowly pulling together at home.

The poster was inspired by In the Company of Women, a thick book of thoughtful interviews by Design*Sponge founder Grace Bonney. I treated myself to a copy when it came out last year and have scribbled down so many great quotes.

Over the weekend, I started listening to Violet Sessions, a podcast that comes out of Violet Bakery in East London. It's hosted by Claire Ptak, who owns Violet Bakery, and journalist Danielle Radojcin.

I especially enjoyed their conversation with Penny Martin, editor of The Gentlewoman magazine and this funny chat with broadcaster and supper club host Alice Levine.  (Side note: check out Alice's pretty apartment!)

And finally, here's something I stumbled across in a comments feed on Instagram from Nirrimi, whose blog I admire. She was responding to a comment about her friendship with another talented photographer Georgia, - "I have a saying, don't be jealous be inspired."

Hope you're having a good week!
