Tuesday Tabs. #4

What a morning it’s been, I’ve applied for five jobs and arranged two interviews for next week, all before I’ve even begun my internship with Shortlist tomorrow, bit crazy. I’m a little bit desperate for a bit of a life-change soon though, so it’s really exciting. Both the interviews are for things that I’d really like to do too, so that’s a real bonus, so chuffed!

Anyway, enough blabbing about jobs, this is a safe haven, free from stress etc.
Here are some great things I’ve found this week, some I even only found this morning.


Isn’t this dress awesome? I don’t think it’s very practical but it’s certainly a lovely way to recycle a map. Made by Annex as part of their Travel Wardrobe collection, each dress is unique and handmade from a vintage map


Cheese! Satchel, Jump from Paper, $80

This is a real life satchel from handbag designers Jump from Paper, their whole shop is full of similar neat designs that mess with your eyes.

Second impractical dress of the day, this time by artist Joy Kampia. Sadly this dress is a one-off and has now been sold but Joy is still taking commissions.


I kind of really love that HelloGiggles lets things like this happen.

I’ve given this a go and it actually hasn’t come out as badly as I thought, takes a lot of patience though, wouldn’t recommend doing these if you’re in a rush.


Dap Bros. – Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski and Walter Sobchak, The Big Lebowski (1998) by Henry the Worst

I actually thought this was a much better advert than the full-length Superbowl version. I wouldn’t go as far as to say the full-length one is bad, as many others have, I just wouldn’t say it has as much ‘Ferris magic’, although some of the references are ‘so choice’. Who really cares if Matthew Broderick is milking a cash cow anyway? He was the coolest teenager to ever exist.


Giorgio 1982 & 2011 Paris. Back to the Future, Irina Werning (2010 onwards)

Part of an on-going series putting subjects back in the shoes of their past. Some of the images are spookily similar, others beautifully poignant.

I think it’s very important that I put at least one cat-related thing on here. This is from Cat Versus Human and is available on a nice t-shirt.

Link Love:

  • Timeline Movie Maker — This pretty much does what it says, but it’s a lot more impressive than you might think. Here’s the link to my one to give you an idea. It’s not hard to do anyway and another good way to procrastinate, plus you can pick theme music!
  • A Beautiful Mess — A lovely Typepad blog which posts all sorts of lovely craft ideas, including how to make floral boots, and DIY salad dressing.
  • Polyvore — This is for my own reference more than anyone else’s. I have known about Polyvore for a long time but keep losing it, I probably won’t even use it, but it’s nice to know that now I can find it if I need to. If you don’t know what it is, it’s basically an incredibly easy way to make up clothes wish-lists/look-books from your favourite shops and designers, it’s quite clever.
  • Hi My Name is Elliot Hasse — Sometimes job-hunting turns into a full-blown career, and it’s no wonder when witty, creative people like Elliot Hasse are the people that graduates have to compete against. I wouldn’t even know where to start if I made a CV like this.
  • Anxiety Cat — As I’ve mentioned a few times, my nerves aren’t great right now but Anxiety Cat really puts things into perspective, and reminds me how ridiculous humans can be. I do find it strange that there are a couple of unrelated posts offering discount depression medication but I would hope that people are just looking for a fun meme rather than the former.
  • Eye Contact — A great collection of film stills of actors ‘breaking the fourth wall’, and generally making unintentionally pretty pictures. Naturally you can only find this kind of stuff on Tumblr.
  • Top 10 Business Card Designs
  • 5 Simple Ways to Get Your Work Out There
  • Another Graphic Design Graduate — The details of how I found this blog are a bit vague but I was feeling pretty low on the job from last week and this anonymous guy/girl took the words right out of my month. It’s pretty interesting and talks about the highs and lows of being an seemingly eternal intern.

  • You may or may not have noticed that I’ve given in on the ’30 day challenge’ at the halfway hurdle, mainly because on further investigation the challenge was stupid and I don’t have enough different friends that range from being ‘shoulders to cry on’ through to ‘people who have always been there’, it was lame. I’m an adult, I want to try and find one that involves taking photos of specific things for a set time period, if anyone could help me out that would be nice. 🙂
