Pink slips, pink ownership papers

  Hello!  I hope your day is as lovely as this strawberry milkshake! I haven't had a milkshake in years and this one was such a delight. My mum, dad and I recently went out for lunch to Old Man Drew. My mum and I enjoy going out to different places to eat, whereas my dad is more of a grumble bum but also doesn't want to miss out! Hehe! On this day, I had a homemade pie and we shared a pecan pie which was delicious. So delicious that I think I need to return there for some more as soon as possible. I adored these red flowers that were on each table. The sun shone perfectly in this photo. Mum and I had a peek at the rooms upstairs where events are held. There was a pink room which was beautiful. Earlier in the day, mum and I walked through a women's peace garden.   With its very own peace sign on the lawn! This dusty pink plant complimented my outfit perfectly. I constructed this outfit around these white boots and pale pink turtleneck which are both pieces that I haven't

Hello! I've managed to find some time to blog - hooray! Life is as busy as ever and there's only two more weeks until the end of term. In my down time, I like to prioritise what I want to do the most. What I enjoy most is spending time with my boyfriend and my family but then I also try to squeeze in friends, reading, embroidering, going for walks and sometimes cooking.    Here's some things I've been up to lately...     1. Going out to eat with my family. I like going out once in a while and trying different foods at different places. And then I also like revisiting my favourite places to eat too.   2. Going on walks and admiring nature.         I adore these lantern trees and would love to have some one day. My sister noticed that they're actually three trees, twirled together to make it look like there are different flowers growing from the one tree. So beautiful.     3. Going to a concert. I haven't been to one in ages! My sister organised the tickets on

Ain't it good to be alive

 For this blog post, I am traveling back to my work holidays in July... a lovely day out to the Yarra Valley Chocolate Factory with my mum. We have visited one of these chocolate factories before and it has become a favourite of ours. My beautiful mum in a dress she made. Isn't she a sewing genius? On the long drive there, my mum and I stopped off at an opshop (of course). I found some cream leather boots for $10, a $2 vintage green scarf that my mum spotted on the way out and a Snow White DVD. I love my old school Disney DVDs and am actually dressing up as Snow White next week for Book Week! I look forward to sharing my costume on here. (If I remember, I'll share a photo of my finds tomorrow, as it's too dark to take photos this evening, as I write).       I wore my cord skirt, cream sweater (it reminds me of one that Linda McCartney wore in the 60s/70s), my snakeskin boots and snakeskin bag (both vintage). Something about all that snakeskin made me feel fabulous, or that

Leaves are falling all around, it's time I was on my way

 Greetings!  Here are some snaps of nature in my neck of the woods. These pink flowers bloom near my sister's work and I remember last taking photos in front of them here . June 2021       Mum and I had the urge to visit the Horseshoe Bend Farm, a place we haven't visited in years! We were sad to see it was abandoned. No more horses or other animals or craft activities or cafes. I have fond memories playing here with my friend Renee and my cousins and sister.       So we just entertained ourselves by walking around and taking some photos, as you do.  Look at this huge fig tree! I hope to grow a nice, big fig tree in my own home one day.     After a wander, we drove home, but not before capturing these beautiful trees in all their red, autumnal delight.       I hope your day is as beautiful as these trees.  X        Title : Ramble On by Led Zeppelin.  

Not A Second Time...

      Hello! I'm back! The first week back at work flew by, so I imagine the next 9 weeks of term 3 will pass quickly too and then I'll be back on holidays again, as I recently was. On my holidays, my mum and I went to the Conservatory in the city, near Crown. It's an all-you-can-eat fancy buffet with seafood and yummy food galore.      I really enjoyed the oysters, prawns, smoked salmon and pickled ginger. Look at all the delicious food we ate. I wasn't that fond of the desserts but everything else was amazing. Mum and I walked around the Crown area, the grand marble staircase, the water fountain. I admired the changing coloured lights on the ceiling, the large horse painting (of course I had to take a photo in front of it!), the posh bathroom and the fluro coloured casinos. I imagined Las Vegas looks exactly like this.   After lunch, mum and I decided to go for a walk by the river to digest all the food we'd eaten. Once we got our vitamin D fix, we called it
