Grand Finale Day........

Sorry...... I'm a slack bitch. I still haven't managed to learn a little bit of photoshop to crop off the top of the picture. Oh well!
Yeah I know i'm posing, but it's a tres cool shot, non?
Taken today whilst stumbling out of a pub and down Johnstone St, Collingwood. Could not be fagged watching the remainder of the Grand Final....... too boring, no Collingwood :)
Tomorrow, we're venturing out again to Parklife. Soooooo excited to hear PEACHES!@#$#$!#!!!#@!? and Plump Dj''s and Van She, but especially Peaches.... ooooooh yeah. And soo loving this beautiful springy/summery weather. I swear, as soon as the weather turns all warm and light I become a completely new person.

Don't Ban the Can..........

I spent pretty much all day saturday at 'Don't Ban the Can' in Melbourne. What a kick ass day. I saw people I hadn't seen in years. I wish I had taken more pictures, but when there's beer involved my brain goes on holiday !@#@?

A Blast From My Past.................

  1. We're having a bit of a spring clean here today. The object is to get all the books and magazines in one place, have 2 piles -
  2. 1- keep
  3. 2-donate
  4. It's going well but we get sidetracked finding stuff like the toy in the picture. I've had this since I was a kid in the early 70's - Isn't it cute!!!

Saturday Morning Goodies...................

I woke up bright and early this morning - 7.30am!! My man and I decided to get out there early, get the weekend paper etc.....
So we came home with these 3 beauties.......
Pomegranate Juice from the Middle Eastern grocery store......... YUM!! - on the label it says "veni, vedi, vici" - I'm pretty sure Julius Ceasar said that and translated it means: "I came, I saw, I conquered" Correct me if I'm wrong though.
Richmond Lager - which is a limited release from Carlton United Breweries - How cool is the label? - I guess this will appeal to Richmond Tigers fans - it tastes a lot like Victoria Bitter to me.
Natural Coconut Oil - from the new Pacific Islander shop which opened 2 days ago - they had some cooked taro in their bain marie - it smelled divine- I've never tried taro, but I will next time I go there - anyway, this coconut oil is great for your skin as a moisturiser and for hair too - when I try it on my hair I'll do a post.

I just had a photographer over at my place taking shots for the Dec edition of Vogue Living Australia. I wish!!!!!! Actually, she was taking shots for a property evaluation, but we had fun chatting as I was helping her move things around for the shots and she complimented the clash of colours I have going in the bedroom - to my delight.

I asked her about lighting- which is my main problem when it comes to photography - and she says get yourself acquainted with Photoshop. My man has been telling me this for ages - now I have no excuse!
My room normally looks more vibrant than the above shots suggest and I would like everyone to know that I am not responsible for the colour of the walls :)
The Orange and Pink floral pillow case comes from an op-shop in Mt.Waverley about 5 years ago.
The Kartell Unit used to belong to a friends' grandmother.

A Spring In My Step.......

What a beautiful day!!!
Now it finally feels like spring I thought an outfit post necessary.
I bought these little blue leather shoes last week for under $5 from an op-shop. I remember when these were out in the 80's. The brand is "bon-bons" and I wouldn't have been caught dead wearing them back in the day because they were not from a store named "Succhi". I adored that place and wish it was still in existence or better yet, I had kept even one pair of shoes from there. Maybe one day a pair will pop up at a market, ebay or op-shop. One can only hope!@#
The belt comes from an op-shop a few years back - It's made in Western Germany, the belt buckle is made using a process called decoupage - where you find a groovy picture then proceed to cover it with layers of laquer. I've never tried it myself - requires some patience waiting for the layers to dry.
The skirt was originally an A-Line wrap around, I stitched the ends together then added elastic around the waist.
The tie-dyed 'Freda' top, you've seen in previous posts and quite possibly will see again.
Black Wrap Around Top - from my friend Carolina who purchased it from 'Marks and Spencer'
Blue Shoes - 'Bon Bons' Op - Shop
Necklace -A beautiful silver Owl necklace from my man for my birthday last week. You cannot see but I will try and capture a clear image for a future post with the rest of my birthday swag.

Tina Cuteness :)

This is what I have to contend with when I get on the pc. How does one type between tummy tickles?!!
