This photographic series Atomic Occasions couldn’t be more summer appropriate. Flowers, wild prints, models in a half-erotica kinda pose – that pretty sums up the season!

In the words of Jessica Tremp:

Atomic Occasions is the voyeur catching someone in a reverie, their thoughts clashing, colliding, blossoming and bursting into consciousness.

Now, if we all had a voyeurist neighbour that watched us eat cake by ourselves, then he’d see a similar scene like the photos above – maybe even raunchier. I love the concept of capturing intimate moments and taking them to a classy-artsy level.

You should definitely pop by Jessica’s site to check out the rest of her work which is full of dreamy, dark, and light haunting images. So many flavours to choose from!

How’s your tanning going? Dark enough? Still need an extra roasting sesh? No worries, I am also squeezing every drop of sunshine! Friends, the countdown is on – there are only a few weeks left of summer and there is no time to waste indoors. We must GET OUT!

This Forever Summer playlist will be like your summer crush, sans the one-night-stand regrets. Forever Summer is full of happy tunes that will pair up nicely with your sunnies and your polaroid. No sunscreen required! (at least not for listening).

Press PLAY and enjoy the breeze!

Let us end the week with a big ass slice of house envy – but hold on! It even gets better; none of these rooms actually exist, they are 3D designs! *jaw drop*. And obviously there’s more where this came from.

Before you start reading, press PLAY and listen to the song above, it goes hand in hand with this tropical-heaven post!!

Oh lawd! The heat is on! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been wearing barely any clothes (basically, a la Daryl Hannah in Splash). For the last two weeks we’ve been blasted with amazingly glorious summer heat – love it! The only draw back though is that at some point you must seek refuge and cool down.

And obviously, there’s nothing better to cool down than a full serving of granita, ’cause that’s how us foodies bring the temperature down, am I rite or am I rite?!

Ok so, you got the music going on and you are in the groove – now get ready to make this super refreshing treat: juicy watermelon, tangy lime, fresh mint, and a sprinkle of salty cayenne on top to bring it all together. In Mexico we call this kind of thing a raspado.

Full steps and recipe after the jump!

Don’t these photos look like surreal paintings? Love what a little bit of paint and a whole lot of skill can create.
