Last week, we attended the opening night of issue 05 of The Pool Collective at Darlinghurst’s Black Eye Gallery. The Pool Collective is a group of photographers that release a quarterly iPad publication of their works. You can check out the free download here.
What made the exhibition great was the level of interactivity – attendees could browse the issue that featured photos, text, interviews and video on the numerous iPads that were framed and mounted to the walls. Photographs from the issue were also displayed in the more traditional framed style. Guests sipped on Smirnoff cocktails and Asahi beer.
The Pool Collective Redux is on until December 23rd at the Black Eye Gallery. Take a break from the stress of Christmas shopping and head on down to the gallery for some quiet time, because it’s free!

Build it and they will come, or so the saying goes. Facebook pages seem to be something every man and his dog has…quite literally, do you know how many dogs and babies have their own facebook page? Don’t even start me on how much the internet likes cats. I guess it makes sense so it’s surprising that so many face book pages look so ho-hum . Online profiles are a great way to share things you love and in my case, the latest fashion and competitions.
Being the fickle girl I am, a change in the scenery never goes astray.Usually I pour over this process myself, spending hours on my computer trying to come up with new banner images but this being the busy season, I left it in the capable hand of If you build it. The provide branding solutions are were a delight to work with. Rapid response and so friendly, it was nice to talk to someone who was really interested in listening to your needs. All I had to do is select some imagery that I liked and mention anything specific I wanted and within a matter of a few days I had something back. This being my first experience outsourcing the creative side of things, i was pretty easy going and just sent some shots from the blog, sat back and waited. Personally the fact that the profile picture and banner integrate so beautifully is testament to their attention to detail.

It’s officially summer and your erratic behavior has me holding on to these gorgeous Cali & Cale white sandals. This is the point where I would insert photos of me prancing about in these beauties but for fear of wearing these new pristine sandals in a random bout of rain, I’ve had to hold back. Instead I’m wearing them at home, stopping often to marvel and how comfy and pretty they are. I now have my eye on the parade sandals in blue with their lovely leather and chunky sole for the perfect pop of colour. If you are looking for pretty summer sandals with that minimalist feel, comfort and quality, grab a pair and join in the catwalk parade I’ve being doing in my home lately. I’ll even let you open the show.
