saturday morning...

the 3 Ls...

love, loans + linen - what a wonderful name for a little gem of a store... glass jars and bottles, bunting, string, brown paper... so many of my favourites!



girls on bikes...

The gorgeous video lookbook of the Autumn/Winter 2011 collection from 3.1 Phillip Lim which chases 3 girls around a city.  I want that white jacket!

pretty party...

This year is the year of the big 3.0 and I am contemplating an equally big party to celebrate... this summer party tablescape has inspired me!  happy, bright and eclectic - you can't help but smile.

no diggity...

Last night we revelled at 90's RnB night at Blu Jaz - awesome night with good friends and lots of boogie.   Lots of old school tunes that brought me back to my high school days and school dances... especially this one - I freaking love this song!  guaranteed to cheer up your Sunday :) 

office life...

Thursday morning and I am happily distracted by the amazing Bon Iver album (live stream it here courtesy of those lovely folks from the Guardian), a cup of green tea and Laduree macarons that were very kindly gifted to me.   Not too bad for a Thursday morning in the office :)

camilla...

I just finished watching Prada to Nada (hilarious, sweet, brainless teen-type flick that I loved...) which featured the lovely Camilla Belle - she is one stunning lady.

first dates...

A very very good friend of mine had an epic first date last night. 

It sounded like one of those dates that you will always remember, where you meet this person and have this amazing connection with them, where the hours just seem to pass you by without you even realising - full of good conversation, good wine, little looks and glances and flirty smiles... 

One of those times that regardless of what happens in the future, you know that you will always remember and have this amazing first date xx

babylon....

Spending Thursday morning listening to David Gray's album,White Ladder.  It's about 15 years old but is still one of my all time favourite albums. 

It's funny how certain songs can bring you straight back to certain times and places.  For me this album brings back lots of great memories of overseas travels, hanging out at the Bung with the Byrnes, going to David's epic gig at Festival Hall with my twin,YT... good times!




If you want it, come and get it, crying out loud,
The love that I was, giving you was, never in doubt
Let go of your heart
Let go of your head
And feel it now

- Babylon

I spent the past week in Hong Kong for work + play (hence the lack of blog action).  It is a place I called home for 2 years and it had been about a year since my last visit... I didn't realise how much I missed it!
For those that have not been, Hong Kong is just one of those cities with an indescribable buzz about it - such a great energy.  It's busy, intense and filled with lots of great food, lovely people and some awesome shopping.  For me, it is also filled with some wonderful wonderful friends and memories.   I certainly do have a love affair with this city.  The week was loads of fun so thought I would jot down what I got up to and also put down some tips for those who are ever visiting.  First post is on HK shopping...
I visited my favourite shoe shop, Vickie Shoes on Queen Victoria Street in one of my lunch hours last week (it is also conveniently located …
