Our friends are off to New York in June...
They will be greatly missed but what adventures await them in the USA!
I was recommended a visit to Apartment Therapy, a great website that features awesome and inspirational apartments all over the earth. Here are some images of real apartments renovated and decorated by real people living in NY.
So to my friends - wishing you all the best! May this inspire you and I can't wait to come visit you and your future NY apartment, how cool!

Charli's boy hates bananas...despises them some would say...can't go near them...it's humorous how much somebody can detest a specific food item!
So this post is NOT dedicated to him because that would be just mean...but these necklaces by Catch and Kiss Jewellery are cute aren't they? And yes, they do make necklaces in other fruits too...
Available for a limited time on sale at Thread People.

Wish we had an occasion or just an excuse to be able to wear lace on our face...maybe I could start the trend? Unlikely....Hmmm...Hey Kay, since you don't want to wear a veil, would you consider this alternative? It's wind resistant!
Found on Lucy Davenport photography blog.

Billy Super has a great eye for stylised photographs.
The blog features a collection of inspirational photos.
Here's my pick of his pick and why I picked them:
This reminds me of me - not street-smart and I like elbow-pads...
I am grateful.
I also love cursive font.
A compliment to all my good looking and stylish friends out there...
you know who you are.

Have you seen these?
A great concept still in the pipeworks but very cool. Perhaps not as environmental as just sticking to a paperless system but i can see the novelty value!
Available from Yanko Design.

This was an old post that Jordan Ferney revisited recently and I am glad she did. She's one talented lady and an amazing friend. She carefully constructed this very involved and exciting treasure hunt for her friend's birthday party - complete with clues hidden underwater at the jetty to a holi powder colour fight at the end.
I love a good treasure hunt!

Stumbled on the term Bokeh the other day. I was a little worried I was going to click into some freaky Japanese fetish...but I was pleasantly surprised to find these gorgeous airy photography. The term is in reference to the Japanese word "boke", meaning blur or haze. They are so magical looking that they've actually cheered me up on this gloomy autumn morning.

Loving this selection of clothing from Kate Spade.
Beautiful mix n' match pieces.
Great looks for the spring - except it's becoming autumn here but doesn't matter!
Be sure to check out the 'behind the curtains' link...it contains some cool finds from around the cyber world.

The world is filled with so many creative types.
Over at Love Maegan, she is fashioning up some serious designer ware on her own. It's really an amazing blog.
This post is for you Charli...now you can have your Louboutins and wear them.

There is something so dreamy and appealing about Alice in Wonderland.
The brilliant team at style me pretty featured a series of conceptualised photo shoots with this theme. So pretty and whimsical.
I particularly liked this one because of the bride's short hair - that's me...always looking out for ways to embellish short hair.
This decoration theme would easily translate well into a bridal shower or even a birthday party. How sophisticated!

I wonder if we can have ice-cream at our wedding - it's going to be in Bali and it's going to warm!
This DIY tutorial to make your own cornettos look delicious and would be a sweet addition to any wedding.
Thanks to a new fave iDIY blog!

Been looking for a new job/career/lifestyle.
Maybe one of these keys will remind me about what I'm looking for in a 'door' - solid, slightly draughty, a little traditional, but very 'alice in wonderland' cool...
am I asking much?
Thanks to A little hamster blog.
