Rose and Ruby

Ever since I was little I've wanted to have a business selling somthing I'd made. Clothing, photography, hand crafts, flowers, artwork, it didn't matter what it was. Just so long as it was beautiful, I'd made it and people wanted to buy it. I always wanted a name with the words 'ruby' and 'rose' however I was prepared to settle with 'Chloe', 'lace' or 'pearl'. Then I discovered Rose and Ruby. I'm saddened that Rose and Ruby stole my name, but it really couldn't have gone to a more lovely company. (I secretly knew it would be gone, even before I googled it.) I am in love with their romantic designs and especially adore their slik flowers. They source fine french lace and design for the woman who is modern, sophisticated and effortlessly chic. They base their designs on elegance, romance and beauty. It relly sounds like the wonderous design house of heaven to me. *sigh* If only...


I've had my eye on these lovelies by Lucy Hope for a while now. I really love the colours of the first and the hair all together is too cute. I was reminded again of these after some more flipping through the latest Frankie Magazine. You can purchase these as cards from Leeloo.

Georgie Love

It is true that I do all of these things. I especially dream of Paris and I want to live in Chile because Philosophy is part of the national school curriculum there. I also do love tea parties, oh so lovely. I suppose I heart all three of these thing equally. It's just my luck that I stumbled across these in the latest issue of Frankie Magazine. Pretty vintage fabrics and all, these are made by the lovely Sophie Isobel of Georgie Loves. Find these three here, here and here.

Ma Boy's Illustration Blog

These lovely images are from Ma Boy's Illustration Blog which posts illustrations by two tallented boys named Daniel (age 8) and Israel (age 9). I think this is both cute and totally inspiring. These boys obviously put a lot of care into the detail of these illustrations. As far as I can tell they have a theme each week and come up with different interpretations in the form of an illustration. I really like how they use different mediums too, instead of simply sticking with paper anc coloured pencils. My favourites are the little birdie who says that wearing your seatbelt is safe and the walrus/seal (I'm not great with names of any sorts, haha) which illustrates the theme of 'Fat'. Wonderful.

Ahh, long time no see. Sorry about that. I've just had all of my end of semester exams and assignments (the last of which i should be doing now) and I really did wish I had time to blog, but the simple fact is that I didn't.

Anyway, today I really wanted to tell you about an online game which is actually not new at all but I just remembered about it's brilliance recently. I have to give a warning that anyone who has any real work to do should not even open this game because it is extremely addictive. (It must be pretty addictive because that is the first time I have used italics on this blog ever.) Actually, I lied, it's not one game, there are three different scenarios and additionally, I am waffling a whole lot. To the point. The game is called The Crimson Room and was created by Takagism, the brand of a pretty cool Japanese artist.

Basically, you wake up after a big night and you're in some room you've never seen before. Obviously, you have to get out. This game really got me thinking and is very challenging. I know my explanation probably doesn't sound that grand, but for those of you who like a puzzle, this is great.
It is really hard to resist the urge to google for a walkthrough, but I guarantee, finish this by yourself and you will get the best feeling of accomplishment.

I know this isn't by any means a gaming blog and while I'm on the topic of off-topic things, never watch this.

Love and warm hugs,
Chelsea Ann
