I love the feeling you get when you discover a new favourite artist/blogger/inspirer. Photographer Slim Aarons came into my world after glimpsing on of his works on my colleagues computer desktop. I was immediately transfixed by the happy, tanned and blithesome beauties captured in the bright sunshine, half naked almost always next to a body of water. His images scream LIFE IS FOR ENJOYING something we all need reminding of now and again.

It’s also only 3 weeks until I am going on holiday (see:abroad, out of country, somewhere HOT) to the beautiful Balearic island Mallorca, a well overdue break I might add. Although Aaron’s work mainly runs from the 60’s through to the 70’s it sort of transcends the times. Needless to say after devouring his back catalogue this afternoon I am relishing the thought of having the sand between my toes again, it has been too long.
