Mike Perry + Broad City

I love comedies, and Broad City is my new favourite. Each episode is a hilarious delight! Also delightful is the show's opening sequence, a different one each week by designer Mike Perry.

Nineties Teen

At my parents place I came across some of my old photos and diaries and thought they were worth sharing with the whole internet. I was a teen in the nineties, so get ready for a grunge overload!!

Slacker, a defining grunge era film. I believe the film still used with this review is from the 'Madonna pap smear' scene. I haven't seen this film since it was released 20 years ago (JEEEEEZ), but I still remember that scene.

I was a massive Pearl Jam fan.

It was shocking when Kurt Cobain died, but I wasn't that sad about it, which you can tell by the 'RIP Kurt Cobain" followed by 'Yay! It's the weekend!' I went to a friends house that evening and one of the boys was hiding in the bedroom crying. We were a bit mean about that, because we were terrible immature teens. I was more upset when River Phoenix died.

One of my pals, rocking the Bjork do. So Nineties!

Lyrics to the song Super Brian Krakow, by the band Krakow, which was me and my friend Debbie.

I was also a massive Lemonheads fan.

The article says Courtney is filming an 'arty' movie, where she plays a prostitute. I think the film was Basquiat. I don't think her character was a prostitute though.

No one was cooler than Drew Barrymore in the Nineties. I mean, could any actress today get away with flashing a talkshow host, and still be the COOLEST GIRL IN THE WORLD??

Elastica !

'Nineties teen bedroom with school blazer'.

And here I am a bit later on in my room at one of my flats while at University. I rememebr those New Balance sneakers! I wore them every day.

Llama Llama

The Llama Blouse from Obus: I would like this for my Autumn wardrobe.

While everyone in the Northern hemisphere breathes a sigh of relief at the end of a tough Winter, I am rejoicing in the cool change here in Melbourne. I love these months in between the extremes of Winter and Summer, and Autumn is my absolute favourite. I love being able to layer up in tights and cardigans!

Going home

Ray and I just got back from visiting my parents in New Zealand. It was my first time home in two years, and Ray's first time on a plane (he did very well).

I drank lots of cups of tea.

And ate cheese rolls: a Southland delicacy.

My parents friend and neighbour made this adorable jersey for Ray. I can't wait for Winter so he can wear it all the time.

My Mum made pavlova and we celebrated Ray's birthday again.

My Dad went floundering.

And he smoked some salmon for me. My family are pretty into fish.

I couldn't believe how much everything had grown since I was home last. It won't be as long between visits from now on.

Ray is one!

So another thing that happened is that Ray turned one! We had a party at the park to celebrate with friends, and Ray's godmother came down from Sydney. We all had a blast! Especially the birthday boy who was lapping up the attention in his special birthday crown. He even got into his birthday cake, and was grabbing fistfuls and shoving it in his mouth. I can't tell you how good it is to see him enjoying his food.

I put this together for the Miracle Babies facebook page. When Ray was born it took me a while to share any photos online. He had so many tubes and things keeping him alive, it's quite a hard thing to see. The first time I visited the NICU and saw all the tiny babies like that I just cried and cried. Then, during Ray's time there it became the place where I spent all my waking hours. But that's all behind us now, and Mr Meet-Cute and I can enjoy being parents to a normal, healthy boy, who has just started crawling and is into everything already, Eek!

Small Wear

I've been following ALL Knitwear on instagram and squeeing over the custom baby clothes that have been posted from time to time. It seems I wasn't the only one because now the company is making small hats and booties available through their webshop. I know of one tiny cutie who would look pretty good wearing one of those baby hats!

New Friends studio

I loved this peek into the studio of design duo New Friends. Now the weather is turning slightly cooler I might have to start some woolly craft projects.
