Smart Summer Love

I was asked to be part of Sun Smart's Love Your Body Blog Carnival . So to celebrate Summer coming around the corner & my love for a good floppy hat and crazily shaped sunnies I made this wee stop motion movie. Hope it gets you in the mood to love your summer and your skin!

I've always been fair, as a teenager I longed for a golden tan but the kiwi sun always got the better of me. By the time I was in my early 20's I'd finally learnt my lesson. I'm never going to get a natural tan! I'd gone through enough after sun lotion, painful showers, sleeping sessions lying on my back & embarrassing tomato face moments I'd had enough! Now I embrace my lily white outer layer & if being sun smart means I can wear a gigantic 60's inspired floppy sunhat and some sweet cat eye sunnies like the ones in the video then I'm all for that! Special thanks goes to Lauren for being a super smart smiley model!

Sunday Sessions

I dusted off my instax mini today for some Sunday instant camera shooting. We had breakfast, went to the National Gallery of Victoria for the Vienna exhibition, had a coffee then tottered off home to blog all about it.

Flower Bomb

I went to hanami on the weekend to sit under the cherry trees, drink sake, eat rice balls & reminisce about my time living in Japan. Sadly, most of the cherry blossoms had already bloomed but still the air was clean, nature was all around and the kawaii factor was on major overdrive.

Doll Face

I went along to Doll Face  - the gala launch party of Full-skirted Productions & shot some snaps for the online mag laneway magazine. I felt like I'd stepped back into 1949 when Lady Diamond, a burlesque performer, got on stage.

Nautical Musings

I just spent 3 days and 3 nights sailing on the sea...this is our boat, the Solway Lass.

Secret Animal Realms

A friend and I were at the gallery for a lecture and we stumbled upon this exhibition - Secret Animal Realms by Tasmanian textile artist Cat Rabbit. Don't you think these creatures secretly come out at night and have a raging party when the final light is switched off & Cat Rabbit goes home to bed?... I do...

Fashion Festival Trends - Colour in Your Darkest Day

I love colour, I love it to brighten my winter days & put a rose in my cheeks. At L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival this year the colours were surprisingly out in full force. I say surprisingly due to Melbourne's extreme passion for black, black and more black in the darkest season of them all.

My faves? Bright blues, greens & reds not to mention the crowd's take on colour.

Karen Walker is tugging at my heart strings

I ventured off, as you do, to the L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival a wee while ago. A little taste test of Karen Walker's SS2011 collection really tugged on my heart strings - particularly the refreshingly yellow a-line skirt and her pretty accessories and floral trousers. She made me want to pack my bags and jet off to Paris for a Spring time rendezvous. Paris Runway 6 was hosted by the lovely Frankie magazine - thank you Frankie!
