I had the chance to sit in on a runway (next year I hope to be helping out the back, and the following year rushing around excited to be showcasing my own designs...all in good time!!)
Here are some pictures I snapped of fashion on the street in Melbourne at the Graduate Showcase and during:

mini cactus

I just went to the Rose Street market in Carlton this Saturday...LOVE the handmade talent there.
I was a rainy day but I still enjoyed myself. The one and only reason I went there was because while at Uni I saw a girl wearing the cutest necklace... a miniture cactus. I told my new housemate about it and he knew just where to get one, yay.

This is my little baby:

here are some I found around the net:

I can't wait to see this movie:

The Vow / Rachel McAdams, Channing Tatum

(I think Rachel McAdams is gorgeous, she is one of my favourite actors...Love all her movies!)

It is based off of this book: 

the worlds smallest cinema

This is very clever!!

talent so young:

It seems the younger generation are finding their feet a lot younger. I'm 25 now and only FINALLY decided to do what I've been talking about for years (Procrastination is a terrible habit/disease, I am kind of doing it right now).

This young girls blog (12yr old) that I have come across doesn't seem to have the procrastination syndrome check it out, this is one of her digital drawings (I think these are my fav of her's).

while researching....

I am currently searching for inspiration for an exhibition being held at the library in February on the 10th.
I will be supporting Jessica Elise with some artwork and outfits for the waitresses.
I have been searching at the moment for inspiration. Only Monday afternoon I FINALLY thought of my theme (having a theme helps me to stop procrastinating about how I should start) I was thinking about my friend that just spontaneously lost 3 people from her life, this reminded me how short life really, really is! I will be dedicating these to her sad loss.
My theme: live as though it's your last 
(not depressing but life fulfilling so laugh as hard, love as much and succeed as you desire, seize your day!)

Here is an image I found as inspiration:

i love fashion shoots:

our world is so beautiful:


(I didn't take these pics, I can't remember where found them as it wasn't today, sorry)

This picture below makes me feel so calm and peaceful, just love it. 

Wear a headpiece:

Inspired by this picture I found {HERE}, Saturday night I could finally feel complete with my Christmas work show outfit.

I would really love to wear something like this 'crown' on Christmas Day, I'm just not sure it's the right thing to wear when your trying to make a nice impression with your boyfriends family for the 1st meeting?!

So this is what I wore as a head piece saturday night: was a necklace, last minute buy from Diva.

This is my sweet boyfriend :)

Vintage purse I found at this cute little antique store outside my boyfriends apartment in Town.

Christmas lights! The white/blue lights were my very quick last minute table centres, I'm apart of the social club at work and lent a hand putting the room together, I love decorating for parties!

1961 / mount gambier:

I must say I haven't watched the full 18minutes but it is quite cute, I giggled here and there. Just doesn't seem like the same place.
I wish I had the skills to create a current time one and have it mirror each other, especially the 'new hospital' moment quote: "we are quite proud of our new hospital", if only they could time travel to now, they would say "we are quite applaud of our old hospital!" - never fear something amazing will be done with it in the next few years and they would be proud again!

25th / afternoon tea party

I'm turning 25 in less than 2 weeks!! (feels like only yesterday my brother and I were on the couch in our old house with him saying to me "next year you will be in the double numbers and there is only 1 more minute until your birthday is over" I had just turned 9)
Being the only girl and youngest I think I was spoilt with a birthday party every year, it seems to have continued. I love birthday parties, especially the decorating part.

This year I was like "yeah, lets just have coffee and tea somewhere in the afternoon"....Now it's in the park for afternoon tea but I want to create this below and have a little photo shoot area set up to take some fun shots (as that's what I love to do) and my beautiful boyfriend and I are baking a red velvet cake the night before, I'm also wanting to bake my ice-cream cone cupcakes! I really can't wait (I don't think I should be turning 25, I feel too much like that 9 year old sometimes. But I do have specks of grey hair showing that you don't stay young forever!)

should i make these...? haha

something like this will be a backdrop for the photo shoot with trees in the background, oh so pretty!!
