Artist, designer, and teacher , Matt Shlian, may have failed math and algebra, but his curiosity and ‘affinity for geometry’ lead to the art of paper folding, or ‘paper engineering’, as he refers to it.  His intricate paper sculptures are the melding of art and engineering, with each piece cut or folded precisely by hand, resulting in a beautiful geometric works of art.  At once simple and highly complex, each fold of his work creates a stunning transfer of energy and light . . .

Felicity remembers Miss Roséline’s very first post a number of years ago. Her first introduction to the world of blogging was when she stumbled across a post on Bestey Johnson's apartment on This Is Glamorous. Ever since then, she has watched TIG blossom and grow into the much loved blog you now are now reading. Roséline’s eye for glamorous elegant finds, makes her smile, especially when she places them in her multi-image colour themed posts. She has also very much enjoyed the addition of Laily‘s Favorite Five posts & Sarah‘s weekly travel finds. She encourages you to settle in with a box of Ladurée macarons & your favorite tea and wander through the treasure trove of images hidden in the archives of this lovely blog. You’ll be so glad you did.
