… if I have to be at work on a Saturday at least I can go to Chinatown

WINKS – weekend links. Here we list what has come in during the week, things we’ve found and things we think you’ll want to see. If you’d like to see your blog or website featured email us and if we think it fits with our readers we’ll link you. So after spending all day in the office on a Saturday let’s see what’s in this week?

    • Let’s start the weekend with the seriously stunning work of photographic duo Alex and Cocco. They work exclusively on fine arts and advertising projects from around the world, with recent personal series shot in Sydney, Paris, New York, Tokyo & Shanghai. Just a taster of what’s in their current folios. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous.

    • Time to introduce ourselves to Trixie Jones & friends. Trixie has a brand new blog full of lovely things and we’re invited for a play date (by her good friend Jenny). Hi Trixie!

    • Las Coleccionistas an eponymous blog out of Barcelona by a super talented photographic studio. Gorgeous images just right for weekend perusing.

    • Remember when it was all the rage to go to cooking school in Tuscany? Well it seems like now it’s all about interior design. The Florence Institute specializes in graphic design and interior design, as well as specialist art history courses, with all classes held in English. Study Abroad and Gap Year students are catered for, alongside graduate and undergraduate classes. Ah Firenze, my favourite Italian city. I wish this was available when I was once a medical student tearing myself away from a gorgeous Florentine to come home to a degree I never quiet completed (yet). Oh sorry. Too much information 😉

    • Valerie that *visual*vamp* sent a lovely email for Thanksgiving. Valerie I’m sending the love back. Have you been to Valerie’s blog? Besides a savage addiction to blogging Valerie manages to squeeze in not only a passion for tango but running a Bed and Tango in New Orleans when she’s not changing out the look of her fab home.


    • Andie Olive, aOlive is a purveyor of fashionable oddities (her moniker not mine). Her 2D/3D coat tree tricks the eye and gives new meaning to functional art. Yes more wall decals but Andie’s have a quirky sense of fun as does her website…. “I was raised by a band of circus bears and have a well developed appreciation for nature, the circus and dead stuff…” and “I also love to dance, spin fire and play the musical saw, but never at the same time.” Gotta love the girl!

  • Chris Brown is at it again. The second issue of Refueled magazine; the bible of alt-country style+design is online now. This issue, even bigger and better than the first, concentrates on STYLE (and doesn’t that old style hound Chris have buckets of it!).
