#fridayfun with @ninaclark__ and @nkimaphotography clad in Nightire by day💁🏼♀️
Speaking of which, the latest piece written by Manrepeller’s @leandramcohen gives fantastic insight into the newest fashion trend - i.e. sleepleisure, the act of wearing your sleepwear out and about. Check out the full piece through link in our bio, if this snippet piques your interest✨
‘But that’s just it — innerwear is outerwear because what we do inside is no longer private. By definition, this makes it public. If you’re in a bathtub wearing a towel over your head and choose to take a selfie and release it, the experience no longer belongs to you. As our relationships with social media, the building of our personal brands and the resultant followings that substantiate these brands grow ever more psychologically urgent, the banalities of what we used to do in our own space as mere acts of self-maintenance or indulgence (brush our teeth, comb our hair, eat cereal in bed, wear an ugly sweatshirt to watch a bad rom-com) seem less banal and thus more shareable. Suddenly, our private behavior becomes public. This can be seen as a blessing or a curse, but I’d rather indulge the former, because publicizing the previously privatized offers the perpetuation of nuanced thinking in that it can force you to challenge notions you have assumed as fact by reflecting inward, reevaluating the quotidian nature of the things you might do on autopilot, like put on pajamas, and ultimately reroute them — make them come alive. Even, dare I say, find joy in them. If athleisure can make you feel like you’re inside the blissful haze of a weekend sin agenda even when you’re not; if normcore, by way of the nostalgia associated with it, makes you feel like a younger version of yourself, free from the burden of responsibility; and if menocore makes you feel like a semi-retired Nancy Meyers-film protagonist, then sleepleisure is a reminder of what is widely held as one of the best parts of the day: bedtime, which either finds you feeling accomplished or relieved depending on how your day went but either way lucky to be in bed. Not a bad place to be.’
Thank you @big.bazaar and @masterchefmom . I used it today to get groceries.
Special thanks to @masterchefmom. She frequently brings such contests to our notice. Such selfless people are rare to find . Thank you Ma'am. #masterchefmom#masterchefmomwins
P.S Special mention and thanks to my friend @studioyukta who reminded me in right time that such photos with pass code should not be instagrammed😬😬, when I went over enthusiastic yesterday and posted it before using the offer, forgetting the fact that anybody can see and use it. She saved it in right time.
🇫🇷 bonjour mes amis 👋🏻 and Happy Friday! I’ve been working on a guide to Bordeaux for a little while (only 5 months late😂) and it’s now live on my blog 🙌🏻 so whether you want some inspiration for a long weekend away (or just fancy looking at some pretty pictures of France) go and give it a read! Link in bio☝🏻 #betterlatethannever#cityguide#bordeaux
Nothing quite like a deadline to get the job done. This beautiful cabinet arrived the shop this morning and now it’s ready for weekend trade. Swipe left to see the space evolve. Also, so happy to see my little space alongside beautiful artworks by one of my favourites @sylviamcewanart | @imprint_house @newrybarmerchants
I’m feeling kind of creatively stagnant at the moment, a bit like a grey piece of paper, or fuzzing static screen or some other, better simile. I sat in a coffee shop a few days ago and scribbled down several pages of book ideas but I’m struggling to piece all the things together and I’ve got an unfinished to do list of blog posts on my phone that I never quite get round to doing. It’s frustrating and a boring sort of cycle to be in so I won’t blab about it too long but what do you guys tend to do when you’re feeling a little stuck with things?
