Projecto

Um, so have you guys heard of Projecteo? I had seen them floating around the internet once or twice (on Skunkboy and the Drifter and the Gypsy to name a few) and was intrigued. I mean, it’s a miniature projector for your Instagram photos, what’s not to like? Spoiler alert: it’s pretty darn cool.

We set up a little viewing party – aka an excuse to eat popcorn and jellybeans – and settled down to look through the photos. It works essentially like a Viewmaster (“got my cookies, got my milk, got my Viewmaster!”) You insert the reel, switch it on, and move the wheel to view your pictures. The quality of the pictures are slightly scratched looking, which completely add to the vintage feel.

Now I permanently keep mine on the coffee table, so when guests come over they have something fun to play with! Well, that and the gummy bear lamp that it lives next to!

Honeycomb-1

Whenever I wear something yellow – or close to it at least (hellooo tan coloured bow-tie dress!) – the first place I want to photograph it is at this wall. It’s getting a little ridiculous, and my boyfriend, Barnaby, always makes sure to let me know. “Jo, are you sure you don’t want to go down to the waterfront to shoot this outfit?” “No, the wall is fine.” “But.. you must be getting bored of it by now?” “Uhh, it’s YELLOW!” This morning, I got up quick-smart, scooped my hair into a faux bob, painted my nails in the brightest honey shade I own, before walking down to ol’ yeller. Gosh, the amount I talk about ‘the wall’ you’d expect that I was living in Game of Thrones or something.. Well, Winter is coming, after all!

I was actually pretty dang chuffed that I got to style this bumblebee ring for one of my favourite luxury jewellery companies; Stephen Einhorn. I love how the yellow wire details on the wall resemble honeycomb – it seemed like a perfectly appropriate setting for this cute little ring I love so dearly. Incidentally, Stephen Einhorn recently released their first-ever video showing how they design, and make their own jewellery. The video shows a ring being set with stones, right after it is put in hot flames and melted down (cue more GOT references, though luckily we avoid the silver crown fiasco this time!)
