its only farewell for now.

Last Friday night we had a little get together with friends for a little send off party for Rick's going away to Japan. The night was filled with good company, good food and drink and lots and lots of laughs.

I probably drank a little more than I should have and remember running around the place tagging people with love hearts and smiley faces with my lipstick.

Really wanted to take an outfit shot, as I've had this Alexander Wang Blazer for a while and wanted to show you guys, but being the photographer, I got really awesome happy snaps of everyone else instead.

Rick leaves in about a weeks time, so things here have been really hectic.
It defintely will be a really sad time, but its only farewell... for now.

secret wars.

Secret wars is a 90 minute live art battle whereby graphic artists use only black markers and black paint on a piece of white canvas. I was lucky enough to attend the first round of Sydney semi finals at the Oxford Art Factory last Wednesday to support SPRINKLES (Aiden McKenzie), a graphic artists from Sydney.

The show was epic and both artists did amazing jobs, but in the end SPRINKLES pulled an awesome tactic with clever play of words and a crazy piece of art that wowed everyone in the crowd and the two guest judges. The grand prize is a Bianchi fixed gear bike!

For more information on Secret Wars, locations and to find out when the next event is on, visit their website here.

Had a really great night just drinking, cheering and catching up with friends with a really cool crowd.
There have been so much stuff happening lately as everyone wants to catch up with us before Rick leaves in about 9 days....

Just got back from a AWESOME weekend escape with Rick from the Hunter Valley. We also had a farewell with friends on Friday for Rick too. There are heaps of photos that I'd love to share with you guys soon!

Hope you all had a rad weekend!

camilla and marc: triple barrel ring

I've been looking for this Camilla and Marc Triple Barrel Ring for ages now. Gave up the chance to purchase it once and it sold out everywhere!

Fortunately, thanks to FrockShop they had one very last one left! It arrived in the mail yesterday for me in a sweet little, signature FrockShop packaging.

queen's birthday long weekend.

Queen’s birthday long weekend was met with dull skies and a heavy down pour of rain. Definitely a day that should be spent snuggling under the doona cover watching movies, eating sweets and drinking tea. Something Rick and I did for most of the afternoon. I really racked my brains for a more creative title but really for the life of me come up with one.

I usually work Mondays, even if it is public holidays (I’m a massive work-a-holic), but as Rick and I only have 3 short weeks left together, I’d rather take the time off and spend some quality time with my man.

We woke up in the morning and went to La Cucina for some anti pesto plate. They have a great deli but not so good food menu. As it was still breakfast time, we had to settle for some traditional breakfast rather than our anti pesto plate. I find it funny how restaurants advertise certain dishes on a menu but always seem to run out of some sort of ingredient like sage butter or even sauce?! Breakfast was rather disappointing, the egg was runny, the taste was bland and I only got two measly little corners of bread that turned up stone cold at the table.

After breakfast we stopped by some spots for photos as I’ve been so inconsistent with my outfit posts lately, I’ve been making mental notes to take photos every single opportunity I get. I’m rather shy for a blogger and am always embarrassed with the attention of onlookers wondering what the hell it is we are doing. So having such bad weather and a few spots of flash rain, no one was around outdoors and I felt more in my own skin to post naturally than I have before.

I did a massive shopping haul on Sunday, a few basic items that I can wear to most occasions. These chiffon shorts are in the perfect rust colour I’ve been looking for. My taste for fashion lately has been a lot more feminine, rather than my usual grunge. I don’t know why, but I seem to be opting for the softer lines than straight tailored cuts. I tried something different this time with my photos a little bit of editing on Photoshop, just to kick-start some creative ideas for my long neglected architectural portfolio.

I think I’m on a rambling rampage today. =)
I hope everyone had a great weekend and hope that the weather here hasn’t stopped most of you guys having fun here in Oz.
