Film adventures

I think I mentioned this in an earlier post, but I have had some terrible luck with my film cameras. My Golden Half just upped and stopped working, as did the camera Mr Meet-Cute gave me for Christmas. Sad, but I'm still hoping I can fix them one day. In the meantime, Mr Meet-Cute found me an ace new/old camera in a junk shop in the Yarra Valley, and these are the results from the first test roll - Not bad!

These first photos were all taken at TarraWarra Museum of Art and the TarraWarra Winery. It was such a beautiful day, we really picked a good one for heading out of town.

These are from some wanderings round the neighbourhood.

It even works indoors! So goddamn pleased.

I love the look of this colourful new book Milkbar: A Photographic Archive Vol 1, by designer and creative all rounder Eamon Donnelly. This type of corner shop is called a dairy in New Zealand, but if you move to Australia and tell people you're just popping out to the dairy then you'll get some funny looks.

These photos are all come via Eamon Donnelly's new website The Island Continent, where I have just spent a ridiculous amount of time. It's quite something.

On the design files today you can win a $500 voucher to spend at Alpha60, aswell as have a sneak peek inside the designers amaze Melbourne home.  I bought this Alpha60 'speckle' print dress last week and I am loving it to death. The print is also available as a skirt, t.shirt, and other dress styles, all of which I have constantly been thinking of going back to get - so my fingers and toes are crossed right now in the hopes of winning!

Sydney Weekend!

A while ago I visited one of my best pals in Sydney for the weekend. All my film cameras are broken so I got a disposable camera to document the trip.

Sydney dogs! Being so patient.

This out of focus roast pork roll was amazing.

Sydney view, from a really pretty park.

The really pretty park was also really fancy because it had this pond full of huge carp.

Martin Place in the city. We arrived here mere minutes after a huge protest that had turned into a riot. True story.

We ate some amazing food during the weekend, including my Sydney 'must-have' Gelato Messina.

We'd just given this guy lots of pats, so I don't know what the sad side-eye is about.

Fresh coconut water was a great start to the day.

This was at a cafe called Bird and Bear, which was beautiful and very 'Sydney'.

Losing You

I think I like this video more than I like the song, and I like the song A LOT! Happy (nearly) weekend everyone!

Summer Style

I always find the change from Winter to Summer dressing rather tricky. I'm most comfortable layering up, and I hate having bare legs. It takes 30 degree plus weather to get me to go without tights! But I love the looks of these summer savvy ladies, so I'll be looking to them for inspiration.
