Night Lights

I think there is something magical about the way the light dances on our windows at night. Difficult to capture in a photo, definitely more stunning in real life.

Sunday Sun

Top - Toi et moi, Necklace - Karen Walker, Shorts - Sass & Bide from ages ago, Shoes - Sportsgirl, Bracelet - boutique at Wolloongabba, Watch- vintage Casio. Expression- result of tugging dog, namely Marlon!

We had quite a productive weekend this weekend considering! Yesterday we had breakfast at a new cafe at Wolloongabba called Egg Bistro. They have just opened a few weeks ago and on many a drive to work I have been lusting over this place and wanting to try it! Finally we did. And it was really yummy - v good poached eggs with sourdough and mushies nom noms! Later we went for a lazy afternoon movie session and saw Black Swan. Not sure I'd rush to see it again, but I could appreciate the amazing costumes and Natalie Portman's performance- holy crap!

Today I got into the Fimo again and made a bracelet, necklace and ring. Later on we took the dogs for a nice long walk (read: they actually walked us) and a visit to the dog park. The sunlight as the sun went down over the city was just glorious. :)

I succumbed and purchased these 'Mali Black Suede Desert Boots' from Topshop last night. I also bought a wooly jumper from the sale section and went to save the pic but it had sold out - so unfortunately don't have any pics to share of it just yet, gah. Looking forward to wearing these boots with everything through winter. Here's hoping they are as comfortable as they look. ;-)

21st Century

Over the weekend we also checked out the 21st Century: Art in the first decade exhibition at GOMA and had lunch at our favourite japanese restaurant. I'm rather addicted to japanese food and this is evidenced by the fact that the staff at this particular restaurant know us and gave us a discount because we're "regular customers"!

Last weekends of summer

It's still typical Queensland in that it was sweltering hot yet yesterday however I thought I'd try to find some op shop buys for when it turns a little cooler. Flicking through the latest issues of Madison, Marie Claire and STYD I was excited to see some new season pieces. For now though these items will need to go into storage since I'll be sticking (literally) to my summer outfits for a while longer until the temperature drops...

The Week that Was

I have been on autopilot this week. Wake up, drive, coffee hit, work, quick eats, work, get home late, spend not enough time with Mr B, quick eats, sleep, and repeat. I had a major event happening at work which I played a large part in organising and I honestly feel like I haven't had decent rest all week. I am so relieved it is the weekend- I can finally sleep in, spend time with Mr B and the pups and try to regroup and recharge.

Here are some goings on from this week.

My Witchery Trench finally arrived this week - I think it's going to be a great staple piece for autumn/winter. It's fairly lightweight but I figure I can layer when it gets chilly.

A couple of really lovely work colleagues gave me a really cute little decorative crane as a thanks for all of the effort put in this week - so sweet.

And a couple of op shop buys from yesterday. We were out and about running errands and had a quick op shop browse for good measure.

Vintage Casio Watch.. $8
I had been eyeing the ones at General Pants for ages and I can't believe I actually found a vintage one at an op shop. Sure it has a slight crack on the face and it needed some serious cleaning (watches are generally icky things) but for $8 I'm pretty stoked.
The photos really don't do it justice.

Touch lamp $8.
I have seen a few touch lamps before and the ones I have seen have generally had dowdy floral patterns - I really liked the pattern on this one - a little retro and it is in quite good condition.

Today after an 11 hour sleep I'm just going to enjoy some me time and perhaps go for a run this afternoon - hope you are all enjoying your weekends!

Happy Friday!

If you see a girl running on the street and then suddenly break into dance, it could be me.

This is currently at the top of my playlist :-)
