Quick Picks – Week 29, 2013

Quick Picks

I’ve had one of those slightly out of sync weeks where I haven’t really been sure of what day it is. So I’m both excited, and slightly surprised, that it’s Friday today! And as it is Friday, it’s time for this week’s quick pick of internet finds. As usual, good things come in threes…


According to A Darling Affair sleeves are back. I love wedding dresses with sleeves, so I’m all for this!

If you love the idea of knowing exactly  what colours make up your wedding colour palette, then you’re going to love Pantone Wedding. You can design and share inspiration boards, and order special wedding colour chips that you can give to your suppliers direct from Pantone. It’s a collaboration with dress manufacturers The Dessy Group so is housed within their website.

LoveLuxe recognise that for some couples children are definitely going to form part of the guest list. They have a simple list of dos and don’ts to make sure your wedding day is as fun for your little guests as it is for your grown up ones.

Art & Design

I know that the artists who work at Disney are amazing, but these original character sketches remind me just how amazing.

The House that Lars Built’s “this girl” is a series of elegantly simple inspiration boards. I love them.

This collaboration between Japanese actor, Taichi Saotome and teamLab to create the Dragon and Peony, Sword Dance and Shadowgraph is beautiful and mesmerising.

Random Asides

I’m a big fan of the “Before …” series of films starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, so I’m very excited that the latest film in the series, Before Midnight, opened in Australian cinemas yesterday.

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend (or next weekend!) Warwick’s Winter Festival, Jumpers and Jazz in July started yesterday. The idea is to celebrate all things winter, which includes wrapping the trees of Warwick CBD in woolly jumpers. It runs until 28 July.

I’ve mentioned how much I love The Oatmeal’s comics once or twice. His comic, the terrible and wonderful reasons why I run long distances, is a good example of why.

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