.:. Sparkly! Sparkly! Sparkly! .:.


Back again after yet another long delay! Rather than bore you with lame excuses and explanations, I thought I'd share something lighthearted and fun. Now I am probably one of the last bloggers* on the planet to have discovered and signed up to Polyvore but I joined today and created a 'set' I thought I'd share...

(click here to see where these babies came from)

...I'm currently looking for a pair of sparkly flats to wear at my wedding (17/12/11...eep!) which is why I chose this particular theme. I've actually got my heart set on wearing red sparkly flats on the day but I'm yet to find the right pair. Anyone know where I can find some?

So anyway, there you have it, my first Polyvore experiment.  Nothing revolutionary, just some good clean fun for those seasoned consumers amongst us! 

Thanks for stopping by!

* I shall henceforth use the term 'blogger' loosely, given my very sporadic posting habits ;D

.:. the last month in Instagram .:.


It's sure been a while between posts. I've had major stage fright /blogging anxiety which mostly accounts for my prolonged absence. I've been lurking around in the shadows, trying to keep up with my favourite blogs whilst mustering up the courage to dive back in and share the things that I've been doing/seeing/loving/hating/creating and procrastinating over etc...

So, I thought, what better way to start the ball rolling than with a lazy quick post full of Instagram pictures. I am a little late catching on to the Instagram craze but I'm well and truly obsessed. Anyway, enough of the blah, blah, here are a few of my favourites from the past month or so:

1. Miguel soaking up the late Autumn sun 
2.  Pretty pink flowers at the Botanical Gardens
 3. Obligatory feet photo featuring new $15 shoes with bows
 4. Getting crafty with pegs, washi tape and Polaroids
 5. My new dress which is my absolute favourite piece of clothing I own and possibly the best thing I ever bought 
6. Spiked cactus at the Botanical Gardens 
7. Post manicure, minty-blue nailpolish and kitty
 8. Tamarillo tree in my mum's ace garden
 9. Last rose before winter
 10. Succulent + kitty paw (my favourite Insta shot so far)

Geez, that wasn't so hard after all. Maybe I'll come back again soon... In the meantime thanks for stopping by and a special thanks to all you cool cats who continue to follow me, despite my sporadic and haphazard blogging style.

.:. Today I saw a sparrow try to steal a man's croissant .:.

.:. Hola .:.
It's true, as I was walking to work this morning I actually saw a sparrow try to thieve some dude's breakfast croissant off his plate, from right under his nose. It was a very brazen move from a very small creature . The croissant was approximately 6x bigger than the sparrow and it made me chuckle, loudly...


Did you see anything funny today?

.:. He likes it so he put a ring on it .:.

.:. Hola .:.

Yes, shock horror, I'm engaged! Moof and I have been planning to get married for a couple of years now so alas, I don't have a cheesy 'diamond hidden in my dessert' story to regale you with. We are more pragmatic than romantic by nature!  Nonetheless, we have finally made it official so I thought I'd share a picture of my lovely, shiny ring with you. I chose the ring myself and Moof lovingly presented it to me over tapas and red wine. We are getting married on 17 December and I'm currently trying not to lose my shitakke organising the whole thing. I think that my eyeballs might burst into flames if I so much as catch a whiff of another wedding blog. I suspect I should give them a rest for a couple of weeks, yes? 

On a serious note though I am very happy and super duper exciting to be marrying Moof and I can't wait to have a South American surname :)

P.S- My eyebrows look like fat caterpillars in the above photo. Ha!

P.S.S- Did anyone get the 'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close' reference? I'm currently reading it and if you haven't already you should totz read it.

.:. Making New Friends .:.


One of the great things about the new house Moof and I are renting is that we have made friends with the next door neighbours. More specifically, we have been befriended by a very sweet little 7 year old who loves to come to chat about her day at school and to show us her cartwheel skills on the front lawn. Just recently she knocked on our door and gave us the most lovely little present... 

...a brightly coloured bunch of hand-picked flowers...
... in a handmade vase adorned with lots of pink stickers!

As a way of showing our gratitude for this little unexpected gift, I invited our little friend over on a sunny Saturday afternoon to bake some cupcakes... 

...we had oodles of fun with piping bags and colourful icing...
...and of course, lots and lots of sprinkles!!

We had such a great day we even ended up digging out my old lego blocks...yep and I was totally exhausted by the end of the day. How about you? Do you have friendly neighbours? Ever make baked goods with them? Do tell!
