Kinfolk magazine is slowly creeping into my life and becoming one of my favourite quarterly reads. It takes its time to make its way to Curacao - often surprising me when it arrives and given to me in funny and wonderful ways. Luckily they have a splendid website, filled with stories taking you to exquisite destinations with subtle details that make each piece unique. The photographs are clean and sophisticated. The recipes simply delicious.

Her ballad is lonely and remote. Like all whale songs, it has an otherworldly quality. Anthropomorphize this beast and she is a woeful old soul, a victim of unrequited love, nostalgic and brave and wailing in the deep.

I love Kinfolk magazine. It is so clean, so honest and it has such great stories. Their website offers some awesome pieces as well. One that stands out is written by Jordan Hernandez and the photographs are by James Fitzgerald III about Penny Ice Creamery.

People begin to arrive as early as 4 a.m. and it’s lights, music, espresso
Balance, respect and trust are key, and if you have those established then a lot is possible.

happy friday

Today I am ready for the weekend. I think it is a combination of an activity filled week, a great night yesterday and many fun things to look forward to this weekend. Family, friends, quizzes, beach, boats and I am sure a glass of champagne here or there :)

Have a great weekend. Thank you for visiting.

“In order to lead a fascinating life – one brimming with art, music, intrigue and romance – you must surround yourself with precisely those things.”

All these great images are via Kinfolk. Check out their website (I even subscribed to their magazine, looking forward to receiving the first issue) .

They have such serene images which are food related and then there are the nature shots, where you almost feel part of the photograph. Splendid.  


Have a great weekend. Smile loads. Look for the details. xx Pris


Yesterday morning while listening to Monocle24: The Stack on my way to work I was introduced to Kinfolk magazine. As I am one to usually note (while at a traffic light) and subsequently search for (while back at home) all the interesting new things I hear about during the multitude of pod-casts I listen to in the car. 

Kinfolk magazine is a quarterly, 144-page, ad-free print magazine that collects ideas from a growing international community of artists, writers, designers, photographers, cooks and others who are interested in creating small gatherings and finding new things to make and do.  

The following are images from Kinfolk.  

Each issue is filled with lush photography, lyrical essays, recipes, interviews, profiles, personal stories and practical tips along with a keen attention to design and details.

Kinfolk appeals to a young, photography-intensive audience full of artists and food enthusiasts.  Whether you’re looking for a new cooking skill, road trip route or camping guide, Kinfolk is a blueprint for a balanced, intentional lifestyle.
