Go go gadget

Super pretty 'Google' colours

Mr Bejewelled and I trekked into the city yesterday for a wander around the shops. I brought home a shiny new (Nexus S) toy and I think I'm in love. Being a tech wizz I think Mr has had more play time with my new phone than I have! I give it three weeks until he upgrades or adds something new to his! As I'm writing this post I'm thinking that I'll probably look back on this post 6mths from now it will look very dated as technology moves so fast. But for now, I'm loving my shiny new toy!

DIY Inspiration

I love these bracelets by Mary Kate Steinmiller of Teen Vogue.. Would definitely love to try making something similar - they would add such a vibrant pop of colour/sparkle to an otherwise boring outfit.

Childs Play

A few cheerful buys today to counteract my still-sickness. As you can see I am rugged up with most blanket-like scarf I own and was looking forward to getting out in the warm sun but alas.. the sun did not show its' face today. So I spent the morning op shopping, went to the doc and did some tidying up at home. I picked up the bowl & plate at Vinnies for $4 each. The necklace and greeting cards are from this great little store that stocks all homemade things from a variety of sellers, a lot of them inevitably being Etsy sellers also. I loved the daintyness of this gold plated necklace. The greeting cards and envelopes are made out of pages from vintage childrens' books and if you look closely, you might notice the vintage paper has been sewn onto the page. They are so delicate I'm trying not to paw them too much for fear of damaging them! I might use a couple of these as cards for baby showers and the other couple I plan to keep to myself and perhaps frame.

Decked out

We visited Freedom Furniture on the weekend and found this little white table. So simple, it folds up and can be stored away, between our bar fridge and the wall. We had been keeping an eye out for a little table for our deck to place our drinks on. We wouldn't dare try putting food on this low lying table - oh gosh we couldn't with the dogs, it would just disappear in a matter of seconds, the table would be disassembled on the floor, the serving plate licked clean. Loving having a 'bar area' feel to our deck in addition to our clunky big table and chairs. Sunday Sesh time! Nevermind that it's not Sunday.

Candles & Cake

I've been feeling under the weather today, I have somehow picked up an annoying little cold. Hopefully it departs soon... I have been comforting myself with big fluffy pillows on the couch in front of multiple episodes of Glee, a handful of new magazines, spesh little cakes we picked up from a local cafe, many cups of green tea and the smell of pretty candles. Believe it or not, the glass one on our coffee table is actually Ambi Pur (sp?). The scent is actually really pretty, not half bad for a supermarket buy! Hope you had a more productive Wednesday than I did!

Popped to my head

Lately I have been thinking I'd love to sit at home on a rainy day and watch movies.. Mary Poppins being the first on the list. It's such a beautiful story and the costumes are so lovely. (anyone else dreamt of owning the stripe blazer?)

There are some movies such as this one that I'll just watch over and over and over....

Others come to mind... Labyrinth, My Girl, Bill and Teds Excellent Adventure, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Rear Window, Dirty Dancing... the list goes on. And gets more and more embarrassing!

It's funny there haven't been too many more recent movies that I will watch over and over. It's usually tv episodes instead: gossip girl, how I met your mother, glee, SATC etc....

What are your rainy day or lazy Sunday fav's?
