Digital Girls: Steller App

steller_app_tamsam_blogJust like digital girls everywhere, we are kind of obsessed with apps. In fact, our cell phones are packed to capacity with very few megabytes left. I recently parted with a couple to make room for my new app crush, Steller.

Steller is a stellar app, no pun intended. It’s motto: “everyone has a story to tell.” Steller is a well designed and fluid app crafted by digital and techy lovers. It is prefect for foodies, travellers, fashion lookbooks and anything that would benefit from a story book, visual and convenient, virtual touch. I enjoy it for three reasons, it’s intuitive nature, the ‘explore feature’ which enables the user to discover new stories and it’s interplay with other social media extensions. Our recommendations? Check out Sibella Court’s Sydney Australia City Guide and From Woods to Table: Mushroom & Smoked Ricotta Risotto, A Recipe. Just a little warning, it’s addictive.

STORY COLLECTIONS This curated treasure trove is an on-the-go diary of authentic inspiration, visual diaries, new ideas, interesting work comprised of both euphoric and banal moments.

T’s Stylist Spring 2015

With a new season officially upon us, my favourite in fact, my spring wish list was a bit harder to piece together. For these months I’ve been lusting after Fouta Turkish towels a perfect souvenir from a, fingers crossed, future trip. No escapade would be complete without the perfect camera, and I think that this Hello Kitty gem would take the cutest pics. Smythe’s stunning blazer, Zara block heeled sandals paired with a light sweater are great transitional pieces for sporadic cool moments. And hey Clueless and Skinnydip fans, this ‘As If’ wallet’s playful nod to Cher and Dionne, can’t help but make you smile.

I’m in the mood for something new, and if you are too, check out Lunai’s delicate earrings and Alex Monroe’s quality crafted signature Bee necklace. Lastly for the home hotlist, Row Haus scented candles and UO hand jewellery ring holder subtlety whispers Scandinavian and looks good too!

Judge a Book by its Cover: The Grand Budapest Hotel

Although many argue that director Wes Anderson’s movies are way too similar too each other, The Grand Budapest hotel was without a doubt one of our favorite films of 2014. The book, released earlier this year combines interviews, essays with  a collection of never-before seen visual artifacts.

For this edition of “Judge a Book by its Cover”, we also wanted to share the work of Lorena G., a Spanish illustrator that created a series of illustration inspired by the Anderson’s 8th film.

BK Every Day

One of our favourite boroughs has to be Brooklyn — its relaxed vibe coupled with a its flair makes it real. ‘Brooklyn we go hard’ might be its anthem, but Kanorado takes a more sublte approach. Founded in 2013, it whispers of one of a kind vintage pieces. We are fans of the ‘all made in New York’ concept. Think apothecary shop meets old and new.
