Easter Treats

I hope everyone had a great Easter! I took a few photos last week before the break. Because my own Keep Cup is one of my favourite things, in an Oprah-like gesture I decided to buy them as Easter presents for Mr Meet-Cute, my Mum and my sister. And I filled them with Easter eggs too, yum!

We had a small get together before I left for NZ, with lots of cake, cups of tea, and Mr Meet-Cute's Hot Cross Buns.

Yum! The cakey aftermath is above left, and above right is a wee succulent plant, a gift from my lovely friend Jennie, thank you!

Kia Ora Auckland!

{All photos from Auckland Street Style (or ASS!) }

I'm off "across the ditch" to Auckland early tomorrow for an Easter holiday. I'm really excited about spending almost a full week in Auckland as I've only ever visited for a few days at a time. So I don't know the city too well, but am looking forward to shopping at Ruby, and visiting my favourite Daiso $3 Japan shop on Queen St, and coffee and lamingtons from Agnes Curran cafe, where I have previously eaten the best lamingtons of my life.

I'd love to hear any Auckland tips if you have some! Happy Easter everyone xxx

Winter Wears

Winter style inspiration from Mallory's Clothes. Wardrobe inspiration AND hair inspiration. I want that pretty Mallory hair.


I finished knitting my scarf!

I made this for a friend but I just can't help breaking it in a little, i.e: wearing it every day, ahem.

… And I have a few new knitting projects on the go. I'm trying to get past basic scarves, which is the only thing I know how to do, so I bought a 'knit knit' kit and am attempting the "chunky snood", difficulty rating: "not bad knitter".

I'm heading to New Zealand for the Easter break to spend some time with my Mum and sister. I'm so excited, hurry up holidays!

A creepy new film, presented by Jane Campion. I want to see this!

Coachella Dreamin'

I've been getting even more obsessed with instagram lately. And especially over this weekend when I found users who were uploading photos from Coachella Music Festival. This looks like the most sunshiney, celeb filled festival ever, and I'm glad I could live vicariously through some of these pics…

Parisian Ladies

{I am a Parisian Lady photographic project by Baudouin, seen via oh, hello there.}

"We all have our own vision of the Parisian lady but everybody got it wrong. Hence, I engaged in a photographic process of 'Les Parisiennes' to unveil this myth, or at least to lighten it up or to update it… 

…I have made a point that all the photographed women have been born, raised and educated within the city of Paris. Those are the ones that naturally carry the Parisian culture without the desire to become Parisians. They can be opposed to those who can just be described as aspirants."

- Photographer Baudouin on his I am a Parisian Lady project. See the rest here! I love how he describes his true Parisian Ladies, as opposed to the 'aspirants' *puts hand up as an aspirant* … I also love the rest of Baudouin's photography, like this guy from his 'Dogs' gallery:

Vintage Madonna

Photographer Richard Corman met Madonna in 1982,  less than a year before she released her debut album and became the massive mega star she is today. 

"I had to call her from a phone booth across the street, because the neighborhood was full of drug dealers, and they didn't let people just walk in and out. There was a group of kids outside the building, on the stoop, in the hallways, and when I said I was there for Madonna the seas parted…

…When I came back a few days later to shoot her, she said, "You know, we should go up to the roof because I go up there with all the kids from the building." She was like the Pied Piper of the neighborhood - they loved her. They followed her, they danced with her, they sang with her. It was something they did on a daily basis, and it was remarkable. We just walked up and they gathered around. She put the boom box on - it was her music, though I don’t remember which song - and they just started dancing and singing. She was so alive and unpretentious. She was fierce, determined. Nothing was going to stop her. "

Corman only recently told his story and shared these early photographs with the world. You can check out the rest of the series here.
