Music Monday...

Ive decided to start a new feature on the blog and have Music Monday's music is such a huge part of my life and i love sharing my fav songs and bands so why not kickstart the week with a tune or two!!

Today its Lavender Diamonds i love happy, hand clapping, lip whistling songs and this is one of my favourites and i mean hello rollerskates!!! They are a Los Angeles based folk band fronted by Becky Stark (who is completely adorable) and her style is beyond whimsical and wonderful i mean look here for example!!! I have a habit when im driving if i hear a song i have to whip out my phone and type the name of it while driving (not recommended) i remember i ended up typing something crazy instead of Lavender Diamonds and it took me ages to track the song down again!!

I hope you all had a fab weekend, i spent mine drinking lots of this..

Spots and Silk...

Id have to say that this weekend was exactly what i wanted it to be, relaxing yet productive and filled with spending time with my girls, getting my hair done and starting my stop motion video...which i can already see is going to take me a long time to finish..but at least ive started it!!

I love this spotted blouse i think its so important to have a few statement blouses in your closet to mix and match your skirts and jeans with, they instantly add a breezy flowy look and are super comfortably too..(im sure you all knew that anyway) i always roll the sleeves too!!

I have also been trialling a few new red lipsticks im still not set on one i like, do u guys have any suggestions???? once my hair was done i had the urge to go through all my lipsticks...so funny with a fresh hairdo you instantly feel like dressing up!!!!

I have been harping on about finding a floor length black skirt for some time now, and all the ones i find are either too big or not the right fabric but in the meantime this silk black one will do me just fine i found it one one of my op shopping expeditions.. super comfortable and perfect for the lead up to Summer...

I know i have been promising a shop upload for a few weeks now but im definately doing one this week, sorry about the delay!!! so keep an eye out for some cute goodies xx

Weekend Playlist & Stop Motion Love..


I know this is the second stop motion video i have posted on the Blog but i seriously have a slight obsession with them now and i have been putting plans in motion to have my video finished very soon (which of course i will post here for you all to see) i love love this one that was made for Oren Lavie and his song Her Morning Elegance it is so beautiful...makes me want to go to bed really haha!!! there is something so magical about stop motion, i cant wait to have mine finished!! so exciting...

And i thought id put in a little weekend music for you all..i have been listening to a serious mix of artists lately so i thought id share..also have you guys been listening to anything that i simply must listen to??? any suggestions would totally make my weekend..

I am going to a Halloween themed party tonight (i know its not till next week..she is a little early haha) and im still not sure on what im going as (last min planning..yup) ill probably end up throwing together something crazy!! and then im planning to have the most relaxing weekend..lots of sun soaking and coffee drinking...

Life is what gave it love first...



Photobucket
After what feels like a few days of monotone dressing i was in desperate need of some brightness i normally dress with quite a bit of colour but have been finding my transition into Spring a little slow...and now its almost Summer ahhh... After getting a slight tinge/burn of sun on my legs over the weekend im happier now to wear the extremely bright pieces in my wardrobe!! but this gorgeous little dress was an op shop find on my lunch break this week..so adorable im completely in love with the pattern and colour.

I also love the little side ruffle detail too...can you spot it?? I originally was thinking brown accessories and shoes with this dress but when i was sifting through my pile of belts i found the navy blue horse belt from a dress i did a post about yonks and yonks ago..do you remember it? if you do my gosh you have a better memory than me...i adore this belt but struggle to find dresses that match it..but i think this works perfectly..

This dress is mostly made of Polyester and i know everyone has their opinions on the fabric i honestly dont mind it apart from the fact it sometimes makes you a little sweatier than normal haha i think on the right day its light and breezy and alot of my fav dresses are made with polyester...now dont get me wrong though i love love my silks and cotton but i thought i would express a little love for the nanna Polyester dress..

I am so so looking forward to getting my hair done on Saturday ohhh my...it honestly feels like the re-growth has taken over my head..i cant wait to have a freshly primped hair do..i was throwing around a few ideas about changing colours a little....hmmm.... but im not entirely sold!!!! looks like im sticking to blonde (as always)

Nothing like a little bit of colour to get you motivated i think ill start my Stop Motion Video tonight...after watching a few episodes of the IT Crowd....

Sunday Sunday...

Photobucket
Whew well all i can say is i had the most FUN weekend, as i mentioned in my previous post i had a photoshoot for my gorgeous friend from Kashen Jewellery on Sunday, everything ran smoothly and we had a blast doing it..plus the weather was perfectly hot and breezy!!!! which worked out well for me to wear my new Witchery shorts... thats right i know i just did a blouse and shorts update last week..but i promise this is the last one for awhile anyway...
Photobucket
I do love these shorts but id have to admit if they were highwaisted i would love them just that little bit more, after buying them i found online the exact colour & print as these in highwaisted cut (cheaper) and i almost died ahhhh...why didnt i just wait!!!!! i swear this happens to me all the time!!!

This is also the vintage pink silk blouse i was talking about last week i found while thrifting it is such a find had no damage at all (which is pretty hard to find) and is just oversized enough for those summer days with a skirt or shorts or in winter with a pair of leggings or jeans...
Photobucket

Photobucket
After the photoshoot we walked down to the Subi hotel for lunch oohh the lamb pasta is amazing..im still dreaming about it now!!!! and then had celebration Pimms at the garden... if you havent had Pimms yet...try it try it.. it is honestly the perfect Summer drink!!!!

Hope you all had a fab weekend too...Happy Monday XX

Pastel Gingham...



Photobucket
Since we have been having such amazing weather lately i figured it was time to pull out the pale legs and bring out the shorts..i have never been a huge fan of the shorts unless they are highwaisted and at least a little bit flattering to the figure..but for some reason this Summer i have been finding myself looking at them and even purchased a gorgeous pair from Witchery that im planning to wear on Sunday for a photoshoot im doing for this lovely lady..

I found these cute Gingham style shorts while thrifting last week along with a stunning pink blouse i cant wait to show you all and it instantly made me feel like packing a towel and heading to the beach to eat icecream and get my shoulders a little burned, unfortunately i couldnt and it was off to work for me..i think because they have a soft pastel colour it makes them a little more flattering i think if they were a black and white combo i would be a little more weary of wearing them.
Photobucket
I have had the most amazing week so far coffee dates and countless amounts of cupcakes, ugh i keep telling myself slow down its bikini weather haha..and im planning to have an amazing weekend too, im excited to do the photoshoot on sunday for Kashen Jewellery and finish off with a glass of wine with lunch..i will be taking lots of pics so i can have a cute post on Monday to give you a little sneek peek into her new collection..

Thankyou also for all the sweet comments you made about the Jeffrey Campbell platforms...i am almost certain i have them on my wishlist now..and here i was thinking i couldnt pull them off..ha you all proved me wrong!!

Have a fantastic weekend XX
