What is it with cats looking weird in photos...

And these are the best of the bunch! She's such a gorgeous cat, she just seems to pull the weirdest faces in pictures.

School holidays ...

Have been enjoying the first few days of my holidays.

Spent the weekend relaxing; kicked a footy round in the first time in AGGGGEEEEESSS. The weather was just gorgeous.

On Monday I went to Zumba for the first time in forever. It was great to do some exercise again. I would  have liked to go again tonight, but the awful weather really put me off.

Yesterday I went into my favourite shop in the world, Zara. Probably an exaggeration, but I truly do love that place. I bought a gorgeous pair of shoes, which I have since found out, two of my favourite people in the world also own. Good taste obviously. =P

I also bought a brightly coloured clutch. I'm not sure why I had to have it, but I saw it when I bought the flats and couldn't stop thinking about it.

In the afternoon I went out to Montrose to have a "coffee" (I don't drink coffee, but it seems to be the thing to call it).

Today I went shopping with my mum and sister. Headed to Chadstone. Twas fun and games when the power decided to go off. Managed to make a few purchases though; Origins Vitazing Moisturiser (my favourite) and a new pair of sunglasses (quite ironic giving today's weather).

New Perfume....

Today I bought Katy Perry's, Purr. And no, I didn't buy it because I'm obsessed with my cat. =P

Smells great! It's fruity and floral... my sort of thing.

It was time for a change. After a visit to Ikea on Saturday (where we didn't really buy anything), we were inspired to reorganise our living room.

We basically flipped the room around again. The TV went back to where it was before Andy moved in (more than 4 years ago) and we created a staircase type structure out of our bookcases. Perfect cat run for Lily too. =P

These are our results.

You can see Lily's bed at the top of this first picture. Andy said he came home tonight to find her sleeping in it. Awww...

I tried to get all fancy and colour coordinate all the books. I'm happy with the results!

School concert is coming up and the kidlets are dancing to the song Fame!

I bought some spandex to make legwarmers, sweatbands and headbands. Should look great!

A silly idea...

For some reason Andy and I thought it would be a good idea to take Lily for a drive in the car. The only time she ever goes in her cage and in the car is to go to the vet. We wanted her to know that it wasn't always the case. 

Let me tell you, she did not like it one bit. As soon as she was out of her cage she hid under the seat of my car. 

A photo...

Please excuse the horrible look on my face (and how blurry the photo is).

An amazing time...

I had the most amazing time at the wedding. Beforehand I was saying to my ladies that there was no way in hell that I would cry, but as soon as I saw Bri, I was bawling!!

I shall post some pictures of my dress another day. Once I've worked out how to mask the odd look on my face in the photos.

What does a girl do when she has 2 days off? SHOP! Really, I probably should have been resting and trying to get over this stupid cold I've had all Winter. Secondly, it would have been more sensible to tidy up the apartment! Nah! I have a wedding to go to (no, not my own) and wanted to find a dress.

Today I ended up at DFO South Wharf and (accidentally) bought 2 dresses. Again, excuse the dodgy picture quality. Doesn't really show how nice these dresses are.

The first one I got a Pilgrim. I'm always put off by the price of their clothes. But I picked this one up for 50% off the already reduced price, so only $39. I don't think I'll wear this one to the wedding, but I really liked it and these days I don't buy anything I really don't like.

The second one I can't find a picture of online so you will have to try to imagine it from this picture! I got it from Seed Femme. It's black (not what I initially wanted), sleeveless,falls just above the knee, crosses over at the front and has a tie at the waist. I'm instantly attracted to sequins these days and I like how these were bronze. It just fit me really well.

As I was browsing I noticed they had a promotion, buy 1 item you get 20% off, 2 items and get 30% off and 3 items and you get 40% off. I was excited about getting 20% off, as I really liked the dress and it was already reduced. At the register this lovely sales assistant tells me that if I get 3 things I will get 40% off. But instead of telling me to look around for more clothes, she tells me to buy a couple of charms ($2 each) and then I can get the 40% off! I was wrapped! She saved me another $16! Here are my two charms! Not sure what I'm going to do with them.

So all in all, a successful afternoon!

I'm not rolling in cash at the moment so I'm trying to find a dress that I could wear with shoes that I already own. I have a pair of black wedges that are similar to these (and comfy!). I know they don't match perfectly, but I think they're alright.

It's been a long while....

Just some crappy iPhone photos to act as a make shift blog post. It has been a long time since I've posted anything. I really just haven't had anything exciting to say.

Put a bird on it...

Has anyone else seen this? I must admit that I am quite partial to things with birds, so I found it amusing. The reason I posted it is because as soon as I decided I wanted to make these stencil printed pillow cases, I couldn't help but want to put birds on them.

What i've decided to do before I attempt my bird designs is to put something that is even closer to my heart on it, a kitten. So i've decided that I will stencil a kitten onto the front of a white cushion. I picked up the cushion from Ikea for next to nothing.

I will update tomorrow with the finished product!

She's huuuuuuge!

Our little girl is getting big! If you're on Facebook you've probably seen these. 

Lily loves the iPad

Playing with a new toy

She can jump extremely high!

Rah! Scary face.

All tuckered out

Was very quick and easy. Well, relatively. I really should have measured the material though as I think it was a little bit different to what the book said. Whoopsies!

Excuse the not so awesome photography.

And just to finish off, a picture of me and Lil. She just didn't want to look at the camera!

A new project...

Haven't been feeling very motivated lately. Trying to force myself out of my funk by taking on creative projects!

My first project is a bag. My aunt gave me this great book for Christmas called, 'Carry Me - 20 Boutique Bags to Sew'. I chose a very simple on to start with which involved using some Japanese cloth called tenugui. You don't have to use it, but I thought, why not! Got a piece online from Raku-Cha. I found it really hard to choose. I could have bought several of them. I ended up getting a simple piece in grey with a cloud-like pattern on it.

When I went to take the first picture, Lily decided she wanted to walk through the frame. Funny kitty!

 The book and the material.

This is what the bag should look like when it's done. It won't be very big as the material is quite small.

I shall keep you posted on my progress!

Low Res Photos

Hrmmmm... it appears that when I use the iPad to blog then the photos are really low res in their minimised form. It's really strange, as when you click on them they seem to be ok. I've been using BlogPress, because you can't use the web version to upload photos on the iPad. Silly restrictions.


Funny the difference a few days make!

Lily has gone from a lethargic, sick little kitty, to a curious, excitable one. She's bouncing all over the place now. She loves the iPad. She keeps swiping her little paws over the screen.

Ready to pounce.

Her favourite toy. She's currently playing with it on her own.

Who you looking at?

Who is that gorgeous thing?

Technologically advanced.


Lily loves yoga.

New toys are fun!

A wonderful day with amazing friends

Last Friday I took a trip to Daylesford with El to visit Kat. Kat is house sitting up there for the next month and we thought it would be a terrific opportunity for a road trip. It was a great day. We sat in the garden and chatted, had a delicious tapas lunch and then stopped by a cafe by the lake for a drink. I really enjoyed myself and I would love to do it again soon.
