Last night we went to see MGMT and Whitest Boy Alive. MGMT were disappointing but it was really fun having a boogie to Whitest Boy Alive - they were definitely the highlight of the evening. Whilst there, we also discovered that French Horn Rebellion will be in town next week so we are keen to check them out. I think they will be really fun!
Hmm seems like I am on a bit of a furniture roll this morning... One of my favourite home blogs is Manhattan Nest - it's about a boy thrifting, DIY-ing and decorating his first apartment in New York. Daniel is hilarious and has a great way with words. He also seems to have the best luck when it comes to finding amazing and cheap second hand pieces.... inspires me to go rummage around at garage sales and perhaps a visit to the hardware store?
Further to my earlier post on shoes, I spied some great shoe storage ideas this afternoon c/o one of my fave blogs, This is Glamorous . At home, all my shoes are currently stored in an old bookcase from IKEA but I am running out of room so need to come up with something else soon or god forbid buy no more shoes! :) My fave is the last pic. Digging the lamp too...! All images via This is Glamorous
Discovered Shoerazzi the other day - a site that gives you a rundown of everything shoes. Whilst I probably will never own a pair of Louboutins or Nicholas Kirkwoods, the site is perfect for some shoe inspiration... and procrastination... Below are some of my favourites that I picked out during my browse this morning... Christian Louboutin Nicholas Kirkwood Brian Atwood [all images via Shoerazzi]
I love a good hat... I have a couple at home and am always on the lookout for more. They have been my saviour on days when I have just washed my hair, haven't washed my hair, and days when my hair is not cooperating at all! Plus they always easily style up any outfit. Vanessa Jackman has been featuring lots of cool hats on her blog lately... I love the first one. It is a bit Indiana Jonesy... :) [all images by Vanessa Jackman ] http://vanessajackman.blogspot.com/
What is happening at the moment in Japan is really scary and really sad. It is devastating to watch and watching the news lately has often felt like watching a movie. It's awful watching a country I love so much go through what it is going through. It has personally affected us over here. We have friends in Tokyo who have got out and flown home to Oz. A friend of mine was living and working close to Sendai last year and she still hasn't been able to get hold of all her friends to know if they are safe. At work I am currently dealing with how we can temporarily accommodate some of our Tokyo office in HK and Singapore. When the floods hit our home town of Brisbane a couple of months back, the Mr and I felt really helpless while watching the news and hearing all the stories from our friends and family. We weren't able to physically help and we weren't really sure what we could do. An email to our lovely SG/HK based friends and colleagues seeking donations was
My work has recently moved into a pretty new building ... It's brand new which means they are still working out the kinks including the aircon - my office is a chilly 19 degrees at the moment. One good thing is that it means I have been pulling out my jackets and scarves (which I don't normally get to wear here in Singapore!)... Perhaps it can also justify a new trench purchase which I have been daydreaming about ever since I saw this picture of Diane Kruger :) Love the ribbon detail... [via this is glamorous ]
I have previously posted about my love for Orla Kiely here and here and the Spring/Summer 2011 collection hasn't stopped that love. Vintage inspired 60s and 70 prints, lashings of colour and lots and lots of pockets!
Image by Todd Hunter McGaw Some blog love from two of the loveliest, most talented and awesome-est people! Shout out to our wedding photographers and friends, Todd and Alyda, who wrote a really lovely blog post about me and the Mr. Check it out here . Thank you for sharing the most amazing day with us!
I am a sucker for a girly floral print. There is just something about lace, florals, polka dots, stripes and pastels that I adore... so pretty and whimsical. I have been thinking for a while that our kitchenwares need a bit of floral action as it currently consists of some boring white IKEA crockery. So when the latest email from Cath Kidston popped up in my inbox, let's just say I am very tempted to stock up! Some of the things I have my eye on: mix and match plates, bowls and mugs Milk jug, will be perfect to hold some fresh flowers I think! Pretty feature dinner plates Spotty cereal bowls (I wonder if the Mr will agree to eat his morning porridge out of one of these?)
