Doing lovely things with troops of girls. A little Wes Anderson-y and little Troop Beverly Hills-y.

I like. See more of Osamu Yokonami's work here.


Make believe.

Has become sorely neglected with all this life change. So I figured it was time for a change here too and there's a new kid on board (back on board).

Shall reveal when I moment of two is free!

Christmas wish list.

Just this. Okay so maybe a years subscription wouldn't go a miss too.


Dedication drawings.

Just a bit lovely for your Monday. From here.

The Octopus Fisherman.



Last weekend I went to a tremendous beach here in Rio called Prainha. I highly recommend! Myself and my beach buddy collected many bits of cactus on our way home (all ten fingers still sore) and now I'm attempting to grow them in our window.

Need all the luck I can get.

This beauty is from here.

Climbin' mountains.

I once had a friend who pronounced mountains as 'mount'-'taines' (I have just discovered it's virtually impossible to explain that in writing) and now I find it difficult to say the word correctly. Anyhow, this guy I know climbed on massive mountain. Here he is at the top.



Holey moley, I just backed this, a very late birthday present to myself with the assistance of my family. Thank you! Does that mean I can claim to be an investor in something? I will now patiently wait for May 2014 for my very own incredibly great FlyKly.

Thanks geniuses for being genius.


Blue lady.

An incredible shot, by Anja Neidringhaus.



One of my most favourite brands here in Rio, Aragem (such a lovely group of seriously talented ladies), instagramed me in their lovely canga (silky sarong type thing, difficult to describe, see below) yesterday at a fashion event here in Rio. There I am, enjoying a good awkward pose.

Sounds a little like the high life, I can assure you it was not but we did manage to sniff out the only free champagne in the venue!


Turning 60.

My Dad turned the big 6 0 last week and I made him this. If the subtitles don't go you can turn them on at the bottom of the window!


This place.

I love it. Even in the rain.
Plus.. the rain reminds me of home.



Things sucks. So we are lucky to have friends.


If you are a Game of Thrones fan.. or if you aren't. This is worth every minute of your time.

By Millie Hall.

A very dear friends lady, Millie Hall, made this incredible flamingo dress. Please tell me who would not like to wear a flamingo dress even if for only moment of their life.

You rule Millie!


The markets. Don't forget the wonder that is Auckland Art and Craft Fair is coming up and the very talented Rosie will be running the Make Believe stall on my behalf. Thank you lassie!

Argentinian treats.

Need I say more.
