Debrief on my Life

I’ve been a little lax with carrying my camera about, so this is a non-pictorial representation of the recent goings-on in my life.

First off, I’ve been doing some writing as of late that you may enjoy. Here are the links:
–  I did a guest post for a Sydney travel blog Aussie on the Road about Sydney’s vintage scene
– I wrote a guide to wearing red lipstick and a guide to buying vintage online from Australia for the lovely feminist/creative website Mooky Chick

I’ve also spent a lot of time browsing blogs as per usual. Here is what enthralled me:
–  I loved this post from Vixen Vintage about wearing petticoats
–  I lusted after the amazing hair styling cabinet belonging to Kate from Vintage in a Modern World
– I laughed at, but also enjoyed this vintage ad for swim caps

This weekend I’m popping up to Brisbane for family bonding, and also to attend the launch of Seam Magazine which is a crafty, vintage-inspired new magazine I am very much looking forward to. Any tips for Brisbane vintage shopping?

And as the sole photo for this post, I present to you this snap of my victory rolls yesterday of which I was rather proud. I’m afraid I look a little grumpy here, but this was probably the early morning lethargy as I was en route to 10am class.

A bientôt, friends!

Colour-coded Delight!

I just colour-coded my wardrobe in a fit of obsessive tidying (possibly brought on by browsing this tumblr), and I’m far too proud to keep the results to myself. So for the voyeurs among you, I hereby give you this splendid insight into my (neat, colour-coded) wardrobe.

Glebe Point Rd

Today I took a leisurely stroll down Glebe Point Rd with my friend Rachael. It was a glorious spring day, with flowers peppering the scenery like they couldn’t even help but be glorious. ’tis day two of spring, and it’s already blue skies and daisies at every turn. Soon I’ll have to abandon the angora sweaters and stockings to make way for breezy summer frocks. This makes me terribly sad, for though I love the idea of summer, the reality is far from the lemonade-and-Pimms-drinking fantasy I dream up in the winter months. Summer for me is forehead sweat, melting lipstick, sunburn, sticky train carriages and ill-fated beach trips. Alas! This is why I plan on moving to somewhere ridiculously cold like Russia.
