shades of love

I love, love, love this project! It's called 500 pencils and it's just gorgeous!. Each shade has it's own unique name and story and I can't even explain how much I'd love to have the whole set displayed on my living room wall. So beautiful. If you want to check it out for yourself head over to -

live music is key

In the past two weeks I've been to 3 very lovely gigs. All of which were in Sydney. This year has been somewhat lacking for gigs so this was a very nice change indeed. The talented people I went to see were -

Les Claypool

The Whitlams (with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra)

Patrick Wolf

shamefully funny

My boyfriend and I just finished watching the complete series of Bottom. I have never simultaneously laughed and cringed so much in my entire life. I don't know how it's possible I haven't seen this before.

For those of you who don't know what it is, it's another British sitcom from Rik Mayall and Ade Edmondson. I've loved The Young Ones (which they also star in) for some years now but somehow Bottom had seemed to escape my attention.

Thankfully that has now been rectified. Now all that needs to be done is to find a copy of the Bottom movie, Guest House Paradiso... Wish me luck!

christmas cheer

Recently I stumbled across a fantastic product. Vintage Sister lip balm.

I know lip balm doesn't seem all that exciting but this balms are uniquely lovely. They come in adorable little tins with a different cute design on each one plus they're extremely moisturizing but the thing I really LOVE about them is the limited edition seasonal flavors.

Each spring, summer, autumn and winter they bring out some of the most amazing flavors.

I'm in love with the current Christmas batch. Some of my favourites are -

You can only buy these little darlings at and they are so worth it, I can't even tell you how much.

i did not want to let you go

I know I haven't posted in a while but things have been a bit crazy. Don't you hate when life gets in the way of procrastination?
Anyway... I plan to get right on blogging as soon as possible but for now I offer you a picture of Peter Doherty and Carl Barat.
