Im always completely blown away when i receive images of the girls holding the journal and Jennifers pages are just as amazing i love the mosaic design, so beautiful!!
As theatre is a huge passion of hers she made the mosaic out of lighting gels which are used to change the stage lighting and sketched a design over the top!! i love that she used her passion as inspiration and it also gives me an idea for using all my photography light gels i never use anymore...So now the journal has already been sent to the next lovely lady, i cant wait to see what her pages will be like!!

Remember everyone you will get the chance to own this gorgeous piece of art so make sure you are reading up on the ladies contributing and the stories behind each page!! I wish i could keep it!!

Have a wonderful day!! XX

Music Monday // Devilles Blogger Meet

I thought id mash the two posts together today as i was going to upload them separately but who doesn't love a little bit of Elvis so he's included in Music Monday!! Im a little late on posting about it but last Saturday i went to a blogger meet at Devilles with some of the local Perth Bloggers where we sipped on cocktails and danced the night away to a Elvis impersonator band...it was so much fun!!! it kinda made me wish i had stuck to those swing dancing lessons!!

The simple things..

I've been enjoying a few days off from the shop and also work..and managed to fit in some time with the girls and a little time on the things I love like reading a good book, drinking green tea and general couch perching!! The new apartment has the most amazing back area with a huge couch perfect for dwelling my time away!!! I've recently just finished Wuthering heights (again) and am probably going to re-read Jane Eyre now too.. I love re-reading books, you sometimes pick up on little things you may have missed before.

I love this dusty pink top I think I've worn it a few times on the blog it's perfectly cut and seems to go with everything!! I've also added this purple little pencil skirt to my collection (like I don't have enough) but I love finding the rare colours..I'm still yet to find a good mustard coloured one!!

I hope you all have a swell weekend, I'm planning to get some shop planning done, do a massive wardrobe cleanout and hopefully fit in some op shopping time!! Xx

Im really surprised how these little kitties have stolen my heart i am a self confessed dog lover and usually found cats ran away from me all the time!! but since moving into my new place and my roomie rescued these little kittens and i think they are just the cats pajamas (pardon the pun)
plus they take the most adorable photographs...

Babydoll...

I took these photos when the sun was out a little...now as im typing this post its pouring down with rain outside brr..makes me look a little silly for wearing a dress but as it was warmer yesterday i didn't freeze trust me!!!
Ive had a busy week so far lots of work, shopping for The Vintage Valley Shop and planning photoshoots for upcoming stock!! so i feel the blog has been slipping a little lately..sorry...sometimes i have a hard time juggling everything but the blog is one thing i don't want to suffer!! Im going to have to train the boy to take outfit photos for me that will help alot i think...

Im trying to get a little organised in the office and took a trip to Kikki.K yesterday...its always so bad going in there, i want everything..i ended up getting an adorable single letter stamp set eek...there is nothing like coming home with fresh stationary especially when its super cute!!

I adore this baby blue wiggle dress as soon as you put it on you feel a million dollars.. the capped shoulders front pockets and back bow are so perfect..I matched it with a red lip and brown brogues...im going to have to say goodbye to flashing my white legs and start dressing appropriate to the weather..so sad!! so im sure you will be now seeing tights, jackets and hats on the blog from now on..ive been taking alot of layering inspiration from Kate Spade she always does it perfectly with amazing colour clashes..

Now im off to get serious about my day...but after i have another cup of coffee!!! what would i do
without it haha..

Melbourne via Instagram...

Well were finally home..its been only three days really but since ive been away from my laptop it feels like a lot longer!! i had the most amazing time in Melb with the boy he got to watch the soccer and i got to drink copious amounts of hot chocolate and shop till my shins were sore...perfect compromise i think...here is a few Instagram pics from the trip...

1 - KoKo Black hot chocolate
2 - The view from our hotel room..so amazing
3 - Aeroplane must haves..Frankie and an ipod
4 - Lunch in the hotel before the game..mmm
5 - Rainbow over the city
6 - Me city gazing...and looking super windblown
7 - The rain splattered streets
8 - New boots...as the shoes i brought were super inappropriate...my toes were almost frostbitten
9 - The old churches...all the stain glass windows and old carvings were so beautiful.
10 - Night lights
11 - Jerseys...me supporting Australia of course!!!
12 - Hotel slippers and bathrobes ohhhhh comfy bliss
13 - Smoke Flares..about 7 or so were let off...it was a tie game 0 to 0!!
14 - More KoKo Black...its a serious obsession now...even better than San Churros dare i say!!

A few things i learned on the trip is to always pack socks...thank god i could borrow the boys (that's right i have big feet) bring appropriate footwear, 50's attire is not warm enough for freezing almost snowing Melbourne weather..stick to jeans!!! don't forget your toothpaste..and don't watch Arj Barker on the way home in the aeroplane...you will laugh out loud (to everyone else's annoyance) almost choke from trying to hold in the tears and throw your complimentary ice-cream all over your boyfriend!!

So now im home its straight back into work and im off to shop for The Vintage Valley shop on Saturday so expect some cute goodies next week!!! finally you yell....
