Your shadow is far too much behind you...


Wearing: knitted layered top (vintage 359 King), Levis denim cut-offs (Glebe Markets), belt (vintage), grey thigh highs (ebay), grunge boots (Cream On Crown), suede-charm bracelet (made by me) & assorted accessories

Ye olde Newtown. That's right! - I always seem to end up in Newtown lately. I've done the walk up and down King Street many times now, but there are still some stores and restaurants I'm keen on visiting, in particularly this bookshop called Gould's Book Arcade. (has anyone ever been? it looks really big and I want to get lost amongst the books one day!!??!) My friend and I went to visit the strip when the sun was out - it was lovely. Vintage shopping, retro furniture, cool jewellery, organic cafe drinks, and oh!....... we took her SLR out for a little snap-time and wondered off to the graffiti side of town. When we saw the playground, we couldn't help ourselves - the inner-kid in us wanted to swing AND rock. Some hilarious moments! Oh how I love swinging... :)

On a final note I will definitely miss the upside of living so close to Newtown and other places when I move back home. I've done a lot of thinking and I've decided to keep my eye on the bigger picture - no more renting and instead more MORE SAVING!! A new development has come into play and idea of NEW YORK is on the cards. My eyes have to see the Big Apple in this life time and not the next. Still need to make up mind, but Times Square and those big pretzels are kind of life-defining right?!... jkings

Just noticed there maybe an overuse of the word "new" in this post. My apologies ;)
