Aw hai! How are you going, peachy-pie? I am good. I am scrambling a bit, to tell you the truth. I’ve just finished off my work for the week and we are THINKING of going camping. The problem is that (I forgot to tell you this) a lady SMASHED into the back of our car on Monday. Our car is old and strong, thank goodness, but it’s taken a bit
Good morning! How are you? I am okay. I slept on the couch last night which was not good. Things were so noisy outside my bedroom window (in the laneway). I could not even stand it. So I went downstairs and put Gilmore Girls on and pulled a blanket over me. I think I fell asleep at around 1am. This is poopy. Meh. Anyway, I wanted to forget about
Aw. Sass Cocker from Ask Alice (and Little Gold) plus her band of clever pals have come up with yet another fabulous calendar RIGHT when you need to be buying awesome things for great people. Proceeds from the Hip Hop Hooray 2015 Calendar go to charity (Heaps Decent, to be exact) so you know you’re getting BRILL for your BUCK! Illustrators/designers of this cavalcade of ch-ch-ch-check-it-out-ness include: Cristina Muffatti, Dawn Tan,
I’ve had some awesome finds at garage sales, but my super-best-find-ever was when someone sold us a box of second-hand dolls for $40 or so when we still had our shop in Richmond. I didn’t really look at them carefully, because they looked like an awesome job lot of shiny-haired plastic ladies, but later we discovered an original Blythe doll hiding in the bottom of the box! How cool is that?
Hello! I’ve been watching Love Story and looking at pictures of Ali MacGraw. What a legend. I love these shots of her pretending to craft/crafting. I was just watching the end when Cam came in from being out. He arrived playing a bongo. I can highly recommend this if you are prone to tears at the end of sad movies. Just get someone to wander by and play a bongo. It’ll totally
Some people are just so awesome. Sigh. You know that thing when someone likes your Instagram photo, so you go and look at theirs? Yes? Well, today I was sitting here, in my fave ugly silver Birks and the dress I have been wearing every day this week (because… love!) and I followed that like-trail back to ChiliPhilly. I am so glad I did. Not only is this hooking
Hi! Guess what? I’m so excited about this great thing that two of my fave bloggers are doing together! They’ve teamed up to do a fast but fabulous tour of some of the ace-est/prettiest parts of Tasmania. If you ever wanted to know where to eat, sip, shop and swoon Katie and Michelle are doing all the hard work for you (totes rigorous!) and sharing the Tassie trip! You

The dresses are made from repurposed pillowcases (more on how to make them here) and Lillian starts on each dress in the morning, takes a break at lunchtime and the
image by Kristin Perers Today I went into the city and had lunch with Rin. We went to Grand BBQ again. Before I met her I bought Ari a copy of The Roots ‘How I Got Over’ and nipped into Magnation and bought the latest Anthology Magazine. I really like that magazine. I am so happy, actually, that there are so many magazines that are NON-stupid and made for people like
Guess what? I’m teaching at the Big Hearted Business Creative Retreat! Clare invited me, Jesse Neave and Rowe Timson (who are all amazingly lovely and smart people!) to head to Ubud in September and work with a small group of creative guests. HOW EXCITING!
All of a sudden, everything is bridal in my world. NO, I am not getting married, although last night I did have a dream that Jon Bon Jovi was my boyfriend.. OMG! Weird. I don’t even like Bon Jovi… Hair bands aside, over the last few weeks, a whole bunch of wedding-appropriate things have entered by life. Let me tell you about them: 1. Frock – Era Vintage Bride Right
I spoke at Clare Bowditch’s Big Hearted Business unConference on the weekend. It was ace. Every bit as good as last year. Possibly even better. Like roolly. How lucky are we to have people like CB and Marty and their gang? They spend gazillions of hours planning awesome events that are actually truly life changing. I know. That sounds cult-y, but it’s really true. Last year’s set me on a
