thedesignfiles After profiling the amazing @leilajeffreys the week before last I fell head over heels in love with this guy, Ash the grey falcon. Recently I have been quite good at exercising restraint when it comes to new purchases (on account of the fact that We are currently 'in between houses' and physically have no walls to hang anything on). Then Lisa reminded me that TDF is about to move into a brand new space (our first proper office!) and we would definitely need something beautiful to hang on the walls... And before you know it I BOUGHT it! Aghhh!! I'm SO excited to receive this work and hang this handsome feathered friend where I can admire him everyday. If you're in Sydney you must check out the full exhibition, 'Prey' at Olsen Irwin, opening this coming Wed! 1w

thedesignfiles Highlight of my time at #pbevent Problogger event - meeting this amazing lady! @carlyfindlay is an inspiring writer, blogger, prolific social media junkie and appearance activist - committed to educating others about disabilities, diversity and acceptance. Check out her blog. So much respect 2w
  •   carlyfindlay Hey @lgcurrell thank you so much for your lovely words! Am currently wearing @sussanfashion pants that I bought in Bourke St! See you when I shop next x 2w
  •   miss_sar_k @carlyfindlay I'm not sure what an appearance activist is but I think I would like it... Sadly I have a disfigured eye from an assault I sustained last year. I have been struggling with my new appearance... 2d
  •   carlyfindlay @miss_sar_k I write and speak about what it's like to look different, and celebrate the different. I am sorry you were assaulted and hope you're ok. My blog is Carlyfindlay.blogspot.com 1d
  •   miss_sar_k @carlyfindlay I will look at your blog. Thank you. I had a fake eye made & yesterday doing my grocery shopping the stares I got at my fake eye wanted to make me just not be here. I hate people staring at me & I have become very recluse. I suffered multiple bone breaks in my face & have scarring, a damaged eye socket & eyelid. I wear sunglasses now all the time to hide. I would never thought I would see something like this on a blog I have been following for years on interior designs. I am slowly getting there but one day I would like to put it out there that in my case my injuries from DV & it's not ok to stare at someone or point at them. Bad things happen & we have to live with it. I don't fit in the conventional world anymore. I will look at your blog. Thank you xxx 1d
  •   carlyfindlay I'm so sorry @miss_sar_k - what an awful ordeal I hope you are safe now. Can I say - don't ever feel that you don't fit into the read world because of your appearance. Difference is beauty. You're very welcome to share your story of what it's like to look different on my blog if you want and when you're ready (there's a contact form on my blog if you want to write to me!). Much love x 1d
  •   carlyfindlay And also - I can totally empathize with the difficulty of being stares at and made to feel like an outcast. I wrote about that last week - many people don't understand though and expect I should educate everyone I meet. It's hard @miss_sar_k 1d
  •   miss_sar_k @carlyfindlay I will do. I'm slowly getting my confidence back up. I never had much before he did to me so now is worse. Yes I am safe now. I think. My matter is to go to trial in November, a whole year after it happened. I hope I am safe & my children as he is still wailing around until it goes to trial. I look down as soon as people stare at the eye. It doesn't move really so it's very obvious plus my eye damaged so the lid & eyebrow all changed. I have scars on side of face too. You are an inspiration to be so positive. I have read about you now & your amazing & beautiful xxx 24h
