Lisa Mitchell- Coin Laundry

Lisa Mitchell is the cat's meow!

If you aren't familiar with Lisa, she was an Australian Idol contestant back in 2006. She's releasing her new album, Wonder, in a couple of days. Here is a glimpse of what's to come. If you can't wait, you can buy this single on iTunes now.

She's adorable. Love the clip.

Faire Frou Frou

‘I love it when you can go about your daily business with the knowledge that you have a little secret of your own on underneath. Lingerie shouldn’t be something you just put on for your lover; you should do it for you. It’s not about seducing men, it’s about embracing womanhood.’
-Dita Von Teese

I found this beautiful online lingerie shop, Faire Frou Frou, over the weekend and am in love! Some of the pieces can be expensive, some reasonable and some cheap. I am looking for a couple of undergarments to complete a Showgirl/Burlesque costume I'm piecing together for a photoshoot. Above are a few of the pieces that have me swooning today.

I am just wild about Etsy. It's soooo much more trustworthy than Ebay and you're supporting small business.

Here are some of my latest purchases.

Corset from Labelle Fairy
Headband from The Bungalow
Popcorn Bags from HeyYoYo
Paris Gift Tags from Petite Paperie Shoppe
Romper from
Maisy Brown Repro Retro

The BEST wedding prize goes to...

This is the vintage carnival themed wedding of Adam and Halli (photography by the fantabulous Josh Goleman). I'm so glad I stumbled upon these photos.

I'll let the images speak for themselves. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.

A little crazy!

There's a lot going on at the moment.... I'm helping Mum move house, it's end of financial year, started a new photography class, refreshing my French before semester 2, fixing old Ask Me Makeup videos...

Today, I'm all about embracing the craziness.

Woot for Tahnee!

I'm super excited that Tahnee Atkinson has won Australia's Next Top Model.

I love her athletic body, her beautiful face and that uber fierce catwalk strut.

Fingers crossed for Tahnee's future.

It ain't easy being green...

Today, I love green.

P.S. I have no idea where I got these pics from. My sincerest apologies to anyone who owns them.

Ugly Sundays

The beast.... the Ugly Sunday.

I have a terrible habit of making no effort on myself on a Sunday. Take today for instance, I sit on the couch wearing an old t-shirt with house pants I wouldn't dare wear outside. My hair is in a terribly messy bun atop my head... in fact I don't think I've done it since getting out of bed. I have a niggling feeling of needing to clean the bedroom and bleach the bathroom. And the strong sense that I should do more than just sit on the couch and make something of my day.

It's because of Ugly Sundays that new diets are promised for Mondays, and goals are set for the week. For years I have fought the Ugly Sunday and yet find myself lounging with it every weekend.

(You win this weekend, Ugly Sunday. But watch out.)
