Still a while off, but something to look forward to! Grace Kelly: Style Icon will be at Bendigo Art Gallery from March next year. Featuring spectacular film costumes such as those worn by Grace Kelly in Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window, haute couture gowns from Dior, Balenciaga, Chanel, Givenchy and meticulously-tailored suits and American casual wear, the exhibition will explore the development and cultivation of Grace Kelly’s style, influence and transformation from Hollywood actress to princess (via @artshub)

Joanna Goddard from A Cup of Jo is posting a great series on her blog over the next two weeks, asking her favourite working mum friends how they balance their day-to-day family and career responsibilities.

Are you a fan of Tina Roth Eisenberg, also known as Swiss Miss? She’s a pretty inspiring lady I think (she even commented on my blog once, literally before anyone except my mum was reading it! *GUSH*). Anyway, I enjoyed this article about Tina at The Brander this week.

I noticed this exact issue happening at a design event in Melbourne recently. What can we all do to avoid this continuing?

The Lost & Found Hotel Room is back for its second year. One room, and open for only a short time, the objects and interior elements selected for the Lost & Found Hotel Room are chosen for their quality, but also because they help tell a story about Melbourne as a city of creative people producing interesting things. Subscribers can apply to stay for free, but there’s not much time left – so hop to it!

A new round of City of Melbourne Small Business Grants (which has launched many a creative business!) is about to be released, find out more here.

The Illusionists is a feature-length documentary about the commodification of the body and the marketing of unattainable beauty around the world. The producers are running a fundraising campaign on as the believe that funding the film independently, through people’s donations, is the only way we can be completely candid about the topics the film will cover, without interference from media companies. More details (and a teaser trailer) here.
