We’re a little excited this week as we’re off to a magical place, a place that might not be around in 10 years or so. We’re shooting our next campaign and we just can’t wait to share it with you, so be sure to stayed tuned to our Instagram feed for all the behind the scenes fun.

Here’s a taste of the inspiration we’re feeling for this trip…

Lately I’ve been experimenting with different processes within my iPhone, and the myriad of photography apps I have downloaded over the past few years.
I’ve found some great processes and colours (usually completely by accident) and have really enjoyed the results thus far. In case you missed it, last month I gave my top ten tips on how to take unforgettable photos with your phone camera – you can read the article on Harpers Bazaar.

There is just something about a summer romance that makes us smile. The fun, flirty nature of a warm summer evening can provide the perfect setting for a romantic date. From a stunning sunset, to a lazy picnic by the beach summer just makes everything better. So indulge us. Here are our top 5 perfect summer dates.

1. Laneway Hopping

laneway

Starting early on in the evening, a cute laneway hopping date will feed all the senses. Taste testing the best your city’s laneways, underground restaurants and bars have to offer, is a super cute way to get to know your date. Walking around the laneways and city means you have plenty of time to really talk to each other (whilst admiring the fine architecture of course), having a number of eating options allows you to get to know your dates preferences when it comes to being a foodie (bonus info for future dates) and you get to taste the best your city has to offer providing you with an epic food envy story post date debrief (aka gossip) with friends.

2. Lazy Afternoon Picnic

This laid back yet tres chic picnic is the perfect setting for any date, whether it is your first or your 100th. It really is the traditional simple efforts that get us. It is timeless really. A Picnic rug. A Food spread. Champagne and strawberries. Lazing about looking up at the clouds. Perfect date bliss.

3. Get your SUP on

Stand up Paddle boarding on a summer day is an amazing and fun date acitvity. And why wouldnt it be! Sunshine? Check. Beach? Check. Fitness? Check. Good Company? Check.

Obviously we wouldn’t reccommend this on a first date (only if you’re keen), but if you do your planning right and find a gorgeous little inlet to paddle in to, this date will be truly memorable for everyone. Imagine paddling out, sitting on the board and watching the sunset fade away, melting from peach, to orange to red to yellow where the sky meets the depths of the ocean. A simple, stunning memorable end to a summer date.

4. Pool Hangs

Unless you have a pool, heading down to your local public pool can be an awesome, easy and fun hot summer date. Being at a public pool takes me back to when I was a kid. The cool tunes, sunshine, waterslides, sunnyboys and cornettos. Ah the memories! Now your date may be a little more PG than G rated but an afternoon of sunshine, good conversation, summer treats and dips in the pool is too good an offer to pass up.

5. Go for Gelato

What a cute date to cool off on a summer day. A wise man once said ‘Without Gelato there would be Darkness and Chaos’, well something similar to that effect anyway, but we sure do agree. Whether it is a post dinner dessert or a meal in itself, there is always room for gelato.

Remember summer only lasts for 3 months of the year, so make the most of every summer date because summer memories are the very best memories.

In preparation for our next trip to the magical lands of Africa, I’m reminded today of some of the amazing sights and sounds from our last trip in 2012.

Below is a very small selection of some of my favourite shots from that trip. All shot and edited in my iPhone – for lots more go follow @wearehandsome on Instagram!

Karla Deras red nails gold jewellery

Sometimes I have this sneaking suspicion that I’m a tomboy in a pretty dress, and my nails – chewed, uneven, sometimes polished but always chipped – are my disguise’s undoing. From afar I look well put together, but upon closer inspection, I’m still just the kid whose knee socks were always falling down at school.

I so envy those girls who, from head to toe, look like they’ve been buffed. They have fabulous shiny hair, they can wear lipstick all day and all night, and they have long, elegant talons. So sexy, so perfect, so eagley.

I really don’t think we need a big explanation here, ’cause these bedroom aquariums are pretty much amazing. I wonder if, when the zombie apocalypse comes, if we’ll all be sleeping underwater. No wait, that doesn’t make sense…does it??

Regardless, dream and enjoy!

POPS3

It seems as though this Frozen Yogurt aka FROYO craze just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Look I am not complaining, it has certainly made a feature in my summer diet over the last two summers. Who am I kidding? I FROYO all year round. So much so, that the term FROYO itself has made the rather odd but occasional transition from a noun into a verb. “Oh hey I am just going to go FROYO, want to come?” “Do you FROYO?” “Of course I FROYO!” Well now you can FROYO yourself at home with my delicious popsicle recipe. So prepare yourselves for a damn delicious summer treat with my HANDSOME POPS OF FROYO.

What you will need:

1-2 cups of organic plain or vanilla yogurt
Half cup of mixed summer fruit eg Berries, Peach, banana, watermelon, Mango
1 tablespoon of Honey
½ tablespoon of lemon juice (optional)
6-8 small paper cups
Foil
Wooden popsicle sticks
Blender

pops1

What you will need to do:

1. Add selected fruits, honey and lemon juice, to the yogurt in a blender. Blend until desired consistency.
2. Put the paper cups onto a plate or a flat tray. Cut strips of foil big enough to cover each cup individually.
3. Pour mixture into the cups at about ¾ full. Add left over pieces of fruit if desired.
4. Once the cups are filled cover each cup with foil and make a small slit in the centre of the foil where the wooden popsicle stick will go. This will help to hold the popsicle stick in place while the yogurt freezes.
5. Add the popsicle sticks and place the FROYO pops into the freezer. Once your FROYO Pops are done, just peel back the foil and paper and enjoy! Simple, easy, fun and delicious.

So there you have it. FROYO has made its way into the hearts of people all around the world and now you can have it whenever and however you want.

If we weren’t already obsessed with the beach, Dr Gary Greenberg from Minnesota has given us another trillion reasons to love it even more.

Magnifying sand 250 times through a specialised microscope, we can see its true beauty. Grains are made up of crystals, shell fragments and volcanic rock – many of them in vivid colours and intricate, fantastic shapes.

I don’t think I’ll ever walk the beach the same way again.

Pipeline Winter 2013 from Eric Sterman.

Known around the world, Pipeline in Hawaii is home to some of the largest and deadliest waves in the world.
Almost every day of the year surfers from around the globe head to Pipeline to try their hand at conquering this infamous break.

Many, many films and documentaries have been shot at Pipeline, but none quite like this.

Using a GoPro camera and a DJI Phantom quadcopter, aerial photographer Eric Sterman has captured some of the world’s top surfers taming these massive waves.

The result is a truly breathtaking video from a perspective which used to be impossible for filmmakers to achieve without hiring a helicopter.

Even if you’re not a surfer, these few minutes will awe and inspire.
