TV 'Lucky' A/W 09

Melbourne label TV just released a preview of their A/W collection.

I'm in love with the colour palate and the silhouettes. It looks like the garments drape perfectly over your body.

I'm guessing this isn't about to come to NZ for a bit, but if it does, i'd happily recieve a gift of anything from this collection! Just sayin.

Feel the ghost inside of you

Discovered a beautiful flickr photographer that makes me want to pick up a camera and go somewhere whimsical.

god bless the daylight, the sugary smell of springtime
remembering when you were mine
in a still suburban town

when every thursday i'd brave those mountain passes
and you'd skip your early classes
and we'd learn how our bodies worked

god damn the black night with all its foul temptations
i've become what i always hated
when i was with you then

we looked like giants in the back of my grey subcompact
fumbling to make contact
as the others slept inside

and together there
in a shroud of frost, the mountain air
began to pass through every pane of weathered glass
and i held you closer than anyone would ever guess

do you remember the JAMC?
and reading aloud from magazines
i don't know about you but i swear on my name they could smell it on me
i've never been too good with secrets

and together there
in a shroud of frost, the mountain air
began to pass through every pane of weathered glass
and i held you closer…

Rest of the photographs here.

TAG! You're it!

Beautiful Daydream Lily tagged me which is exciting.

the rules: share six things that make you happy and tag six amazing starry-eyed bloggers!

Ok firstly, i tag:
The Tea Drinking English Rose
Buttercup Baby
Shayla Shut Your Eyes
La La

And six things that make me happy are:

1. Writing
Writing prayers, thoughts, secrets and the whispers of my heart into pretty little notebooks that i will keep forever

2. Being a wife

Making our house beautiful, cooking yummy meals for my husband, bringing home treats, hiding away from the world and playing make believe, adventures together, sleeping in and waking up to the most incredible man in the world beside me.

3. Mary-Kate and Ashley

I can't help it. I'm gonna be a 50 year old who still goes on websites to look at pictures of them haha. I love their style, i love what they're designing. And i recommend everyone to go buy their book Influence. It's amazing.

4. Melbourne
Most beautiful city to explore and most perfect place to enjoy a honeymoon! I want to go back and go explore some more. I loved Crown Casino at night, gorgeous restaurants on Lygon st, the amazing size of the malls and shopping areas, Chapel St, catching trams, the zoo and more. If i ever decided to live somewhere else it would be Melbourne.

5. Greek salad
I'm obssessed. I think i made it every day last week. Feta= YUM.

6. Blogs!
Reading beautiful blogs and looking at amazing photography, incredible crafts and reading pretty and inspiring words. I'll also probably be a 50 year old who is still blogging.

Garden Party

The campaign for Burberry SS09 has inspired my theme for a friends bridal shower i'm throwing.

Pot plants, a palate of greens, browns and earthy tones, frilly frocks and a dishevelled setting. I'm going to make the bridal shower a garden picnic party and decorate a garden area like these photographs and add some lanterns hanging from the trees.

Even though these photographs are for a Spring/Summer campaign, the hues and tones give me an autumnal feel when i look at them and i love that! They give so much warmth and remind me of crisp leaves and sepia tones.
