Quick Picks – Week 25, 2013

Quick Picks

This is a quick picks post, so it must be Friday! As usual, good things come in threes…


I’m not a girl who believes in having a single signature perfume, or even two. I have a whole collection that I adore. I love the way a scent can reflect or enhance your mood, and some of my strongest memories are triggered by particular fragrances. So I’m quite taken with Ruffled’s suggestion of using your wedding perfume to make milestone memories.

There’s no question that winter has arrived in Brisbane. If you want to stay warm on your wedding day why not add a bolero or shrug over your dress as a statement piece rather than an afterthought? Etsy shop Chrisst has some amazing steampunk inspired ones or if you’re after something a little more traditional, Etsy has over three thousand alternatives to consider.

Staying with the winter theme, the Knot Australia has some tips on choosing a winter-inspired wedding cake.

Art & Design

Yukio Ohyama’s photographs of Mt Fuji are truly spectacular.

Alex Trochut’s Binary Prints are portraits of electronic musicians that include two completely separate images in each picture. One appears when it’s light, and the other appears when it’s dark.

This cartoon by Icelandic artist and cartoonist Hugleikur Dagsoon is brilliant.

Random Asides

Browsing for new ebooks is never the same as wandering around a bookshop, but Apartment Therapy has some suggestions for helping readers find new ebooks.

The Palace Centro Cinema in New Farm is hosting the Pop Up Manga Festival in which they’ll be screening a film from Studio Ghibli at 8:45pm each Friday night, and midday each Saturday from 21 June to 27 July 2013.

Aren’t these fox flats adorable? And they’re on sale!

That’s it for another week’s quick picks. Have a great weekend!
