a father's day wishlist

Monday, 15 June 2015

i put together this father's day wish list aiming to transcend ages with items for both new dads and old men (a plus for me is that jack likes all the items on this list, and truly he is an old man at heart).

whilst putting it together, it got me thinking a bit more about my relationship with my dad and what i would truly like to give him for father's day. of course all of these items are pretty cool, but more than anything i would like to give him some memories for us both to share and cherish for years to come.

we have quite a disjointed relationship and i don't see or speak him as often as i probably should. so it thought it would be good for us to be stock with each other for a few weeks, to open up to each other. a while back, i started thinking about walking the camino de santiago with him. it is also known as st james's way in english. the pilgrimage route takes you to the shrine of the apostle st james the great in the cathedral of santiago de compostela in galicia in north west spain. traditionally the pilgrimage starts from your home, and as my dad lives in the south west of france, the route would quickly take us into spain. let's see if i get my act together and approach my dad with the idea.

have you shared a special experience with your dad that you hold dear? i would love to hear about it.

a little refresh

Tuesday, 2 June 2015

a few of you may have already noticed, has had a little refresh recently, an improved logo and a new layout. it's been a few months in the making but now that i am finally done with my degree (i handed my dissertation in a few weeks ago, yay!), i can dedicate more time to this space, which i am so excited about!

the logo: i fell in love with katie vernon's work on wreaths a while back and dreamt of using her skills to create something unique to complement my original logo. after a few emails back and forth between cornwall and iowa, where katie lives, we got to this beautiful design and i hope you will like it as much as i do. i couldn't have hoped for a much better result. it was important for me to create something that resonated with my surroundings, therefore all the plants used to make the wreath can be found along the cornish coast.

the layout: once the logo was finalised, i felt like a little more change was necessary so i picked a new theme from blogmilk to fit in with the wreath. blogmilk offers beautifully designed, minimal templates for wordpress and blogger. all the themes are limited edition, which means only a handful of people will be able to buy the same template. ana degenaar, the designer behind this brilliant concept, is always at hand for a custom request, which is helpful when it comes to making the theme your own.

there is still a little tweaking to do but i am very excited to share with you's new design!
