Somewhere in between my my little online vintage business, behind my family, friends and boyfriend and wedged in between shopping, clubbing, twitter, facebook and the constant buzzing of my phone, I was feeling lost.
Lately I have been longing for silence and simplicity to clear the rushing of my head, so I decided to disappear for a few days. I turned off my phone and told my close ones that I was going on a imaginery holiday for 4 days. I know what your thinking - what a fucken weirdo. Yeah, I know. That's what most of them thought too.
On Thursday I started my day off with a massage, (a voucher that my boyfriend gave me for my birthday last month) then I bought a heap of pampering products, had a long bath and finished it off with a facial and a foot soak.
I headed down to a little park near my house with a homemade iced mocha, chocolate, brie cheese & crackers and some grapes. I admired the pure beauty of the view, the breeze, the smell of the trees, the pretty flowers and my clear mind.
I have been tossing and turning about some major decisions in my life including an overseas trip (hopefully a permanent move if I can figure out my visa) and I finally feel that I am starting to clarify the direction I am heading towards in 2012. Here are some pictures that I took at the park and on the walk home. I hope everyone has a delightful weekend xx

I have had quite an eventful and productive week. Like every other person I decided to track down my very own name branded coke. I was pleased to say the least. I was even more pleased to purchase one of the most beautiful pairs of shoes I have seen in my whole entire life. It was one of those moments where I thought - my god I'm a superficial bitch! I can't believe I'm this elated over fricken shoes.
I made a delicious warm pesto salad that is good for you and tastes amazeballs. I love it when that happens! I also had a rather delightful Wednesday dancing the night away with some of my favorite ladies. A large bunch of things were posted out for my eBay store and I wrapped them all individually which is always a lot of fun. The week was finished off with one of my best friend's 21st birthday. Nina is such a beautiful person and a wonderful friend and I was so proud to share such a big milestone with her. It was a great night and I will be sure to share the pictures with you soon. I hope everyone had a happy weekend xx

Cassandra and I decided to frolic around a little street near my house on the way home from pasta, some champagne (yes, in the day time, its the best time ok?), deep thoughts and hilarious words (shes good value lol) in the city at our favorite restaurant.
It occurred to me sometime last week that I am one lucky bitch. I have some amazing people in my life and I am so thankful for every single one of them. These days it seems that people are always bitching and whining about people screwing them over and they often forget to stop and appreciate the good people in their lives. I am incredibly lucky to have such loving, drama-free people to spend my days with. I really don't know what I would do without my fabulous friends.
Thank you special people. I love you dearly xx
On a different note, do you love my vintage acid wash jeans that I picked up in my travels?
I do! It is rather hard to find jeans that fit my butt, thighs and my waist - if you haven't noticed my butt has its own island haha.
I hope you are having a lovely Wednesday xx

A couple of Sundays ago, a small group of friends and I had a little barbecue and drinks at South Bank. We drank cheap wine, gazed at the river and talked shit for hours. It was simply magical.
