First Time With LALALAB.

Blabbers, Recommendations March 1, 2017

Here’s a thing: on this blog, we obsess over print. And it doesn’t really matter what kind of printed objects – I love them all. There’s something about the combination of paper and ink giving a physical shape to a beautifully visual concept.

And what can be more visual than photos? Even though photo printing is not a new thing (this is the part when I start to miss all those old and dusty family photo albums together with the memory of knowing that the local Fujifilm shop has printed our pictures and someone needs to go pick them up; how exciting!), the obsession with picture collages and the recent trend of Instax cameras and polaroids have made photos a very must thing to have. Without having to lie that I don’t need an Instax when I just can’t afford it, and saying that polaroids are becoming overrated when I really want to wallpaper my room with them, I can confess to being a victim of this phenomenon, trend and movement.

But I am no photographer, yet there’s something extremely fascinating about holding a physical copy of something you’ve captured and created. Something that holds meaning and brings back emotions or memories. By looking at it while playing with the light reflecting from the glossy surface, you experience a thrill that no screen can convey.

Favourite Pins of The Week

Design, Recommendations, Visuals November 18, 2016

I once had a love-hate relationship with Pinterest. Back in the day when I was younger and didn’t know many good things, I was constantly on We Heart It – creating collections of pretty images that barely served any purpose to me. Fair enough, though, as it was all I needed at the time!

I remember being aware of Pinterest, but completely against it. I might have found it difficult to use, or, ironically enough, useless. Yes, yes, the site from which I get a lot of inspiration now, once looked completely pointless to me.

Not anymore! After getting interested in design, I’ve been creating boards, following people and pinning, pinning, pinning… It’s become my main source of inspiration now. So today I really want to share a few of my favourite pins from this week! Read More
