REFRESH





Wearing: Levi's denim jacket (vintage ebay), maxi skirt (vintage), belt (vintage), clogs and sunglasses (Rubi), clear quartz pendant necklace, raw crystal and gemstone rings (made by me).

I can't believe how relaxing this weekend has been for me. Considering how hectic my work week has been, I literally came home, ate dinner and hit the sack when I got home on Friday night. I've been designing something quite big at work, and when I mean big, I'm referring to big as in "big deal" AND "big in physical size". I can't reveal to you what it is at the moment, but let's just say Sydney commuters/pedestrians will probably catch a glimpse of it soon enough!

Over the weekend, I finally had the chance to watch Eat Pray Love and throughout the movie I could not help but think HOLIDAY HOLIDAY HOLIDAY! Don't know about you, but it made me re-assess my life, wants, dreams and most of all, my growing desire to travel as much as I can. With a good dose of retail therapy afterwards, I treated myself to a bunch of new shoes and sandals. Yay!

On a different MORE EXCITING note! - I just found out that my neighbour who lives directly in front of me is in fact another blogger herself! Introducing, Thu from Original Number. We have been neighbours ever since she was in primary school, and now at 17 I wouldn't of have the slightest idea that she too had her very own blogspot, or let alone similar interests if she didn't walk across the road and asked me straight up "Do you have a fashion blog?!!", whilst I was taking outfit photos. ABSOLUTE - ONE-HECK-OF-A-SMALL-WORLD CRAZYYY!!!

Despite the awkward confirmation that I did, we immediately clicked and she offered to take my pictures for me instead. So here they are! She did a great job didn't she! I invited her to come over and we spent a good while getting to know each other and showing each of our blogs and favourite sites. Did I feel like an overly-excited teenager back in the day? YES! Big shout out to my new blogger friend Thu! :D I hope you like the ring I made you? ;)


Go ahead and visit her page! I'm sure this won't be the only time I will be mentioning Thu and our "new" blogger friendship haha.









I've been playing this on repeat - Dark Storm by The Jezabels. Hayley's voice is beyond enchanting, hallowing, swooning and just breathtaking really. If you haven't noticed, I am a massive fan and will be watching them again at their concert next week. If you haven't heard their music yet, I advise you do - so press PLAY, sit back and take it all in.

Happy Halloween people!
