still not a great blogger...

...Fold some paper boats, maybe one will carry you out to sea where you can watch the stars through your kaleidoscope...

Family Affairs (literally, a mother and daughter partnership!) have one of the most beautiful lookbooks i’ve been lucky enough to stumble across. Of course, the clothes are beautiful themselves, but beautiful pictures always ’seal the deal’ for me. There is nothing like beautiful imagery to get me interested in a collection, but Family Affair doesn’t stop there – alongside each picture they detail what the model is wearing, just how it fits, a sugary sweet description of how and where the clothing should be worn and a poignant lyric to match.


Reading those beautiful descriptions sent me off into a little Daphne wonderland where all I wanted to do was write postcards, read books and eat cake, unfortunately the idea of me being so reallyreallyreally bad at this blogging-thing pulls me right back to the real world. I am so sorry for all these useless posts I've been posting up this last month and I promise that I'm working on photographs, drawings, bookreviews and anything I actually did all by myself, because honestly; how boring must it be for you beauties to read something you've probably read 100 times before?! So from now on; excpect posts with only my own photographs in it. Or should I just stop entirely? xx

PS: I am planning on giving away one of my drawings! If you want it, just comment here. : )


  1. oh no, you definitley shouldn't stop entirely dear, it's just sometimes you can go through stages where you feel uninspired, don't worry though because it will come back <3 xxx

  2. Don't worry Daphne !
    And the photos, yes, are beautiful. I want to be in a garden instead of being in an office.

  3. i like your posts!!
    these pics are amazing and really inspiring

  19. You absolutely should not stop! I think your blog is beautiful and was so flattered when you commented on mine. I don't think there is anything wrong with putting up pictures of collections or anything else that happens to inspire you :-). It's always nice to have a mix of things on a blog, so if you add more of your own photos, I think it will be lovely!
    Will add a link to your blog on mine :-).

  20. Hello!
    I just found your blog, I think your art is very cute, like the kind that would fill old journals and things like that!

  21. No, definitely don't stop. I just found out about you. Your blog looks really cute! Very artsy-fartsy. Are you from Germany or from Holland too? (as you said deutch and .. well.. erhm.. okay whatever)

    I really will put you at my links and I'll be following you from now on! As for tumblr, I started following you there too!

    And about the photo-posting thing, I just think you need to blog about things that interest and inspire you, and if you can put your on photo's to it, it'd be wonderful.. but still, it's your blog and do whatever you like... we probably would still follow ;)

    (and I know how hard it is to take astonishing outfit photo's of yourself..*sigh*)

  22. you are not a rubbish blogger at all; you've just told loads of people about family affairs, which is probably one of my favourite new things :') no joke!

  23. Daphne, what a beautiful name you have!

  24. Don't stop entirely! I've just seen your blog and I already think it's totally beautiful.

  25. extremely breathtaking photos.. and your blog is great!! don't stop!


  26. Thanks for your comment. I am so glad I dropped by yours: love the link to Family Affairs (I'm inspired) and I would really like to see more of your drawings. Take a break, yes, but don't stop! I just got here!

  28. Hi Daphne, I am really loving all the inspiration on your blog!

    Thanks very much for visiting mine and leaving such a sweet message.

  29. I love your blog! And the pictures where awesome... I try as well to be a better blogger...long way till then!don't let the bed bugs bite! ;)

  30. No, you definitely shouldn't stop! Please, don't. I don't know how you came to the idea that your posts are boring? And I never read your chosen subjects elsewhere. No, on the contrary I could discover new stuff on your blog, like new blogs, artists and musicians. Though keep going with what you were doing. I like it and if you feel to show us more of yourself and your view, like book reviews, your pictures and your art then do it. I'm excited to see this stuff and I am sure it will be very interesting and creative! Looking forward, darling! So DON'T STOP BLOGGING!

    xoxo Sandra
