Someone get me outta here

I seriously haven't been able to take this Stylestalker Parka off since I received it. I probably would try and sleep in it, but I won't, 'cos that's just plain silly.

Such a busy day today - I have barely had time to uh, scratch myself (as they say).  But now, I'm going to unwind browse some blogs, maybe window shop some online stores and probably check instagram like 1,000 times.

Have a good night!

What up Monday?

I dunno about you guys, but it was a fight/struggle/ fists throwing kinda morning. I was so snug and I really did not want to get up from under my three doona thick bed. Not even for the delicious coffee Jonathan made me.  ( I take that back J, don't take that as a way out of making me coffee).

So these shorts are comfy, they fit nice, they're warm. So basically all the great features you'd ask for in a short. I mean - I wouldn't be wearing them if they we in fact the most uncomfortable things ever, would I? Though even in all their comfy glory, they probably aren't as comfy as bed was this morning. AMIRITE.

Wearing: Sportsgirl tee, Zara shoes, Nixon watch, Vintage bracelet, Paperheart Shorts, Skull Bag

An easy DIY project for your house, teepee, tree-house, apartment, lean-to or whatever you live in. It will definitely class up the joint. And your friends are bound to say "I love what you've done with the place"

I found this quick DIY on Emmas Design blog and she says you will need these items to complete the project. So that's what I'm telling you to use, as i haven't in fact made it yet, therefore her opinion is way more valid than mine.

You will need: charcoal, nylon thread, black tape, scissors

Her Method:"Start making a sketch in your head. I did that myself and tested my way through.

Cut several pieces of black tape so you can use them when working fast. I stopped when the shape felt a bit unfinished because I did not want it to get too round or triangular, instead I wanted a geometric form that changes depending on how it hangs and from what angle you're looking at it."

My favourite use of the charcoal is definitely the lampshade - love the minimalistic look.

Worn out blues

Ca-lash-sha-lashing. or something. Not sure where I was going with that.

So I thought I'd dabble in the clashing of florals trend. It seemed like a cool, fun way to revamp an outfit that orignally was worn with something neutral.

Wearing | Paperhearts floral blazer and Pants, Mink Pink raglan tee, Vintage belt, Nixon Watch, Karen walker necklace

Happy Tuesday!

Midas Touch

Wearing metallic is possibly the hardest trends to wear as you run the risk of looking like a $2 hooker or like Grandma Yetta if not worn correctly. I find it easiest to stick with neutrals so I avoid stepping in to either of those territories.

Not shown: The numerous mosquitoes that decided to attack when taking these photos. My poor wittle fweets.

Wearing: Who Killed Bambi Tee, Metalic skirt (Similar here), Wittner heels, and spotted stockings I cut into socks, House of Harlow ring, Tiffany Bracelet and Nixon watch

Guys, there's a serious epidemic out there and it's spreading faster than wildfire. You may have seen it in silk or satin form and *gasp* people are in fact leaving the house with it. *raises eyebrow*

Symptoms for said epidemic include:

1) You begin to justify you look good by saying it's "luxe casual" or "elegantly classy".
2) You begin to have an identity crisis and thus deem it acceptable to leave the house dressed like a crazy person  
3) You start blurting out to random people in public "Are you thinking what I'm thinking B1". But no one will respond with "I think I am B2" because no one is thinking what you're thinking. NO ONE!!

People have said that the PJ trend is an alluring new evening wear option for spring. I am still yet to find proof of this and I think the people saying such things need to back up their claims with some decent evidence - 'cos at the moment all I'm seeing is whole lot of Hugh Hefner look a likes. And do you want to be pay homage to an 80-something year old man's attire?

I quite like the Celine PJ style pants that have been doing the rounds (That print is stunning). The trend I am talking about is the full on top to bottom look. They don't look stylish - they literally look like pajamas, pj’s, Jimmy-jams, jammies.

Riddle me this: If you're going to take the time to put on makeup and pull your hair back into a painstakingly perfect ponytail, wear heels etc then why don't you have time to wear proper clothes.

Okay, I'm done.

Liss Outfit post

Yesterday my friend Liss (Daydream Lily) came over for a catch-up. I did her make up and hair then I took some outfit photos for her blog ( I liked her outfit so much I just had to repost it). I'm pretty envious of her leggings too, so this is my way of pretending I own them,

She's wearing: Arabella Ramsay leggings, The Horse shoes and my vintage jumper

A long weekend cut short due to work - but that's okay, we made the most of it with long drives down the coast both days. Saturday was just one of those days where we didn't especially know where we were going - so we just kept driving. We stumbled across a canopy of trees and just knew we had to take photos under it. They were just amazing and so dense. The photos turned out like something out of a fairytale, I feel like a princess when looking back at them.

Hope you're all enjoying your days off!!

PS Kudos to Jonathan for his photography skills, and for continuously improving and amazing me with his work.

So my family are a bunch of creatives. We all have hobbies - whether it's artistic, musical or designing. It's always been that way too. Growing up we all drew, my siblings played instruments and learned how to sing. I never had the attention span to learn. Mum enrolled me in a class to learn guitar, piano etc but It just never stuck. I was more interested in sports and being creative in other ways...

My mum just started selling some really cute pieces on Etsy. Her brand is TigsTogs - all the pieces are handcrafted and she will be doing custom pieces too, so if you need something this winter that you can't find shoot her a line through etsy, she is a knitting machine! The scarves are so rad. There's something about handmade scarves that are so much better than store bought ones. Don't you think?

She offers free shipping Australia wide and her range is from $25-$70

Wearing: Cheap Monday Jeans, Vintage Jumper, House of Harlow and Rubi Shoes

I got stopped by a lady today. At first I thought I had mascara running all over my face (because I had just had a massage) So I thought she was being polite and letting me know I looked a panda who just got in a fist fight...But the reason why she actually stopped me was so she could ask me a thousand questions about my jeans. Don't get me wrong I was flattered but when you've just had a relaxing massage and you've had a migraine lingering for three days the last thing you want to do is list a bunch of shops on the Gold Coast who may or may not stock these Cheap Monday Fluro Jeans... "What about blah blah up at that place, oh you know..the place that's next to the coffee you think they would stock them"...I parted with her by saying check out General Pants online store with her response being "I don't own a computer".

The Island

Today I had a shoot for Get It magazine, then came home to do work for my new job at Cupcake and now finishing up by doing a sneaky blog post and sorting through Who Killed Bambi orders from today. What a day and man just going to put it out there - I'm not sure where my stamina has come from today. Powering on though, because I fear if I stop it's going to be a downhill battle. I think a warm soak, a yummy dinner and also my guilty pleasure that is Master Chef is in order. Despite having a long day - I am very, very calm.
