it's been getting colder here in Australia over the past few weeks, not that I'm complaining... its actually a nice change since we dont really get the full four seasons like other countries, and i love getting rugged up with warm wooly clothes, cups of hot tea and warm winter dinners. i found these cute lambswool fingerless gloves on etsy by vKnit and i just adore them! i have been checking out oh deer vintage online for some warm winter clothes as I have nothing to wear... and even trying to find a cute sweater for my cat kinda like this one. Ha ha seriously.. if anyone knows where to buy cat clothes let me know! oxo
These captivating images by Suzy Poling are of Chippewa Lake Theme Park, which remained open for 100 years before being abandoned in the late 70s and, eventually, reclaimed by nature. How rare to find such an amazing place to photograph. each image beautifully captures the decay. adore them!

This black velvet turban is my most recent purchase, it's from Casper&Pearl a handmade fashion label just starting out in Adelaide, South Australia. I met Stacey from Casper&Pearl through blogging and bought the turban from her etsy store. When i received it in the post, i opened it to find this gorgeous handmade cross necklace as a gift! so sweet and such a nice surprise. her grandfather cuts up the crosses in his workshop, how adorable is that!
i'm still a bit nervous about wearing the turban out, what do you think of the turban trend? and do you like the look on me ? xox
a few snaps from saturday night. my two finger cross ring arrived in the post on friday, so excited that it actually fits. it's always a bit of a gamble buying jewelry online. i'm wearing my fave top from asos which is actually from the maternity wear section LOL .... (not preggo) it just fits like a loose blouse which i love and i always get complimented when i wear it.

Hope you all have exciting weekends planned... let me know what your up to? x
I found this ultra cool tutorial over at p.s i made this for braided friendship bracelets, and had to share. for the full tutorial pop over to Erica's blog for this and many other DIY stuff. i was only just talkin with em dickson on twitter the other day how much i wanted some friendship bracelets... looks like they are making a comeback!
I have recieved alot of interest in my photos recently, mainly "how do you edit your photo's to look so good?" well I have to admit, i have some handy help from these photoshop actions from Nightfate who can be found on deviant art. If you have photoshop they are super easy to use and make photo editing so much easier.
love making my photos have a vintage whimsical feel...
A few pics from my long weekend away at Byron Bay, sorry they are all instagram iphone snaps. I spent 3 days with friends sunbaking, eating great food (mmmm eggs benedict) laughing (one of my friends got pooped on by a bird.. so funny) and shopping. I didn't get that gorgeous bag i posted about but all in all it was an amazing little getaway. We didn't end up in the tepee as planned. there was torrential rain the day we arrived and all the tepee floors were wet and there was NO electricity! it was the 8pm at night and the royal wedding was on (it was televised at night here in Oz) and no hotels were answering there phones. We frantically called as many places as we could to book some last minute accommodation for the 7 of us! thankfully ONE place answered. It all worked out perfectly ... and frankly i dont think ill be slumming it at a backpackers again... i like my own bathroom, nice warm bed and electricity .. thankyou. hehe
