Oh yes oh yes Summer is here! A perfect way to kick off summer was at Camilla's Melbourne launch of her floaty and totally frivolous new collection at The Olsen hotel. Despite the rain everyone still managed to get a good dosing of poolside glamour.
in the rain, what a trooper!

Tomorrow I am shooting a very special poolside glamour show for Camilla's bright and cheerful summer collection. I saw the collection earlier this year at Australian Fashion Week, but still quite excited to see the pieces in their natural habitat....let's hope the thunder storm holds off...
Oh and mental note (mental because it's driving me mental) this post may look a little bit weird... blogger is playing up so I've had to resort to the old way of posting circa 1999.

It's the weekend! I made these little origami stars for my house, I thought it needed something Christmassy. You can learn how to make them here.

I went to a cook book launch for Cook Book north/south. The book was entirely printed by hand on letter press giving it a very unique feel, quite different from the glossed up pages of today's cook books. The books were not bound , in fact they were simply separate pages sandwiched together by wooden plates - like the recipe cards from way back when.
Each section of the book was dedicated to a suburb in Melbourne - all with their own unique flavours, cultural influences and ingredients. Along with each suburb came a story - an anecdote from a resident of that suburb, and the recipes came with a story too. For me I liked the details of the pages, the little motifs under the recipes were super cute :) truly a special book for any Melbourne food lover.

It's been a while since my last blog post. What have I been up to you ask? Well flying between New Zealand and Australia to shoot various projects and join in on wedding fun with two of my good friends from New Zealand, that's what! They were held at the incredibly scenic Queenstown and cute and quaint French settlement town of Akaroa.

A few days ago I went to along to the Fully Six exhibition at the Guilford Lane Gallery. The exhibition was to showcase 6 young and up and coming Australian artists. Was particularly impressed with photographer Tom Blachford check out his sweet video below. Also loved Dawn Tan's gigantic marshmellow sculpture, nom nom nom... One of the artists Jessica Hyde makes fabulous stationary which you can buy at Rose Street Markets or at her online shop!
I loved this artist but for the life of me can't remember their name (& google doesn't seem to want to help).
blow your trumpet!
After the exhibition I went for a wander in the rain ...
