Loving the Laneway Night Markets

Just when we thought there couldn’t be anymore markets or festivals, On William and Fringe World decide to outdo everyone! I was meant to be packing for Broome (which still hasn’t yet been done) but once again I abandoned common sense and gave in to the irresistible draw of the Laneway Night Markets. The On William team have done it again, transforming Hook and Lock…

Marimekko Spring 2013 – Colour explosion!

I’d been longingly staring at this Marimekko teapot for a while, and finally caved in after Christmas when it was on special at Table Culture (oh, plus a Marimekko bowl and a Mud platter too…oops…).  I wasn’t aware that Marimekko also splashed their irresistibly cheerful prints all over a tantalisingly sweet range of clothing until recently when I was doing my usual internet ogling…

Little Bee

I used to be an avid reader when I was a school kid. I would read anything I could get my hands on (even encyclopaedias – no kidding! What a dork!) but my favourite was always fiction, preferably of the fantasy kind and even better if it had a young girl with auburn hair, eyes like fire and a heart of gold as its protagonist,…

A little mid-week inspiration

Well actually for me it’s the end of my week (I’ve been working the last six days) and hence maybe why I’ve been feeling the need for a little pick-me-up lately. I’m a sucker for heart-wrenchingly beautiful flowers, particularly the kinds of arrangements that still have a “wild” feel to them. Somehow I feel that they just have more life and an undeniable character…

Eleta (aka The Bunny!)

Meet Eleta – the owner and creator of The Bunny, purveyor of fine handmade goodies that have a hint of quirkiness and individuality, achieved by using a clever mix of vintage and new elements. This online store (and now real-life summer market stall) was established in early 2011 and has already started making a ripple amongst Perth’s fashion and accessory lovers. I came across…

The procrastinator’s Christmas gift guide!

If you’re like me, you’ve done it again and left all your Christmas shopping to the very last minute! If you’re from Perth, these products are all either found in stores locally, or at least in Australia with the possibility for delivery prior to Christmas Eve. Eeks, that’s cutting it close…! Take a look – there’s something here for any lovely lady in your…

Visiting an Impossible place…

Whilst we were in New York last October (gosh has it been that long already?), we took the opportunity to visit the Impossible Project. A lot of us would still have fond memories of taking Polaroids and eagerly and often impatiently waiting for the image to appear like magic on that little rectangular piece of film. And then somehow, as 35mm film took off…

The shoot before the storm…Part #2

As promised, here is the second part to my shoot with Steven plus a bonus costume change! Don’t forget to check out his facebook and tumblr pages for more of his fab work! The weekend has been a crazy whirl of rehearsing for wedding, showing relatives around Perth who are visiting for the wedding, making cupcakes for the wedding, and ultimately finally attending the wedding!!!! (Did…

The shoot before the storm…Part #1

Last Saturday I had the opportunity to do a photoshoot with the very talented Mr Steven Chew! Steven is a lifestyle and portrait photographer based in Perth, Western Australia (he also does a mean wedding shoot and dabbles in film, and when I say dabbles I mean rocks it!). Check out his facebook site here and tumblr here! The photos were taken out and about…
