Lemming - Fleur Wood

I have decided I am well and truly over Winter and thus, my thoughts keep turning to everything Spring.

I have always loved the simplicity and the vintage tones of Fleur Wood's designs and that they aren't too trend orientated. I also adore the designs of her dresses, they always have an unrivalled sense of romance for occasions such as a wedding or daytime date.
The Spring 2011 Collection is no exception. LOVE.

Today was the last public holiday we will have for the rest of the year, well until Christmas anyway, the 'Ekka' holiday. Every Ekka holiday I come over all nostalgic remembering the great times I had as a child visiting the giant carnival that is the Ekka, with all the animals, showbags, rides, dagwood dogs, strawberry ice creams and fairy floss. Despite this, rather than brave the crowds I do favour taking the day to relax and spend time with family mid week instead!

Over the weekend, family welcomed a new addition: Locky. Locky is a Beaglier, that is, a Beagle x King Charles Cavalier. Evidently having spent time with our two crazy Beagles hadn't completely put them off the breed! He is so cute and tiny and excitable and we just couldn't resist visiting today to have a play and cuddle!

Night Lights + Laneway Bar

Last night we ventured out after work and had dinner at Jellyfish (yum!) followed by drinks at The Laneway.. to celebrate, well.. we were toasting "nothing at all". Which was kind of nice because we have made a point to not make too much of a big deal of our birthdays and anniversaries when they come around nowadays, unless they are considered, well, 'milestones'. Brisbane is definitely trying to create the hip-ness of Melbourne in creating laneway type 'precincts', I have to say, this place was pretty cool...
Excuse poor pics, night-time and a phone camera do not make for epic photography!

Shadows were created by this..

Top of the World

After a long week and lots of bad behaviour over the weekend (read: pizza, booze and all manner of sweet treats), we went for a fairly epic bike ride today. Here are a few shots from our adventures.

Beautiful Queenslanders

Anyone else think this belongs in The OC?

Someone has a sense of humour ;-)

And then there was this gigantic mother of a hill. Seriously, on a cruiser without gears which weighs a ton, I wasn't about to try riding up this thing. It was basically vertical. Thus commenced the hike with the bike. Mr Bejewelled tackled riding up all the way, with one small stop on the way up. I was pretty impressed!

There was a good reward at the top though..
