It's a busy weekend ahead. One rather important wedding, my brothers and then Laneway Festival Monday and I'm part of the market there! Some wonderful ladies who work at Pauanesia with me are contributing to my table this time and I promise you you won't be disappointed. And I'll be on a mad street style hunt!

Please come over and give me a high five if you're at the festival, and I promise a wedding photo or two also. Since I'm a bridesmaid! I'm hoping I might get to wear my hair a little like this, right, off to my final dress fitting.

Happy long weekends.

Can I take one home?

The jackets.. yeah the jackets.

Sweet summer.

This heat has got me dreaming of mangos. The kind that are impossible to eat without getting juices all over yourself, so good!

I'm desperately on the hunt for the perfect wedding gift, my brother is getting married this month! And thank goodness I'm a bridesmaid so no dress worries. Any suggestions? I thought a lovely Rifle Paper Co. personalised print would fit the bill.

For the win!

I really love the new Spoonflower winner's fabric. New owls?

Happy Birthday to my dear friend, Jess. Who I must see more of!

Osborn's got some new slips. Perfect summer shoes? Quite possibly- except my toes will still be ghostly white.

I've been a fan of big bang studio's blog for awhile now and thought I'd share this wicked post. Worth reading, even if just for the last line me thinks!



She's a little bit like Santa Claus, in fact she's a lot like Santa Claus, the only difference being her mode of transport and date of arrival.

I just go home from short break with friends on the chilly side of the globe and it's so nice to back to in the heat even though I'm missing them all dearly! On the night of the 5th I was staying with friends the in Salerno (Southern Italy)- we ventured to Napoli for dinner and there the streets were lined with people selling stockings, sweets and childrens toys in preparation for La Befana's visit the night before the Epiphany feast. Some toy stores were open late, with queues! for those less organised parents.

I was lucky enough, thanks to kind friends, to wake up the next morning to my own Befana stocking! (My friends pants with the legs tied which I thought was even better that the traditional sock) and boy I found a load! One huge vespa scooter toy, some potatoes (not sure if this is tradition or improvisation), fruit, handfuls and handfuls of sweets as well as my very own pieces of Befana coal. The joke was on me, I really thought the coal in my stocking/pants was coal and put it down beside my sweets before tucking in only to turn to my friend with the thing half in their mouth and crunching hard.

Behold, the amazing coal sweet!

I hope this post made some sense, I fear it hasn't at all. Anyway, Happy New Year everyone!
