My birthday suit – Claire from Ruck Rover


This week’s Birthday Suit curator is Claire Trolio from one of my all time fave stores, Ruck Rover, and that fantastic little website “We Love Perth” that always seems to pick out and find all the shiniest gems in our beloved city. Ruck Rover is situated on the corner of William and Francis Streets and is always my go-to store if I’m in search of a special gift that’s unique. They have a great selection of clothes and accessories for girls, guys and bubs alike!

Whilst wearing these lovely duds you see above, this is how Claire would spend her perfect birthday…

To begin my birthday celebrations a few friends would join my on my back porch for a few gin and tonics. We’d share stories and laughter before heading up the road for dinner and champagne and Must – a soufflé for entree, the crab pasta for main and an ice cream sundae for desert! Bliss.

Shake your bootie(s)!

A couple of weekends ago I attended the baby shower of a long time friend of mine (we’ve know each other since we were four!). She’d seen a pair of booties I’d knitted for my new niece and so I was put to task to make another! The sex of the baby is going to be a surprise so pink and blue wool were out, but I found a lovely pastel green which I think worked out well.

This isn’t strictly a how-to, more like a show-and-tell I suppose, but comment below if you’d like the pattern! It’s quite quick and easy, and great for gifts!

It’s not easy being green…


Oh but yes it is! It’s now heading into summer here in Australia and the colour I’m totally digging right now is green, ranging from the bright grassy variety down to the more understated moody jade type – whichever tickles your fancy! Add the colour to your table top, or to your home as an occasional chair, accentuate a monochromatic outfit with a bright accessory (picture a black and white polka dot dress with a chunky green beaded necklace – here’s one), or be brave and go all out with a green dress or floral onesie!
