Bunny trails at midnight


Gallivanted around the backyard in this beautiful bunny-eared wrap from Fairground on Sat night, paired with Staple corset and vintage silk shorts. I did get bitten on the arse by a red ant whilst trying to do a cartwheel (and failing....tis tough in this oversize wrap) but its a small price to pay.

I also have another Fairground 'Bunny Got Nailed' wrap....bought for a fellow blogger who then found one in the UK. Does anyone want one? If so, email me. If I hear nothing by Thursday (Australia time), its getting returned. One bunny will do me. Pardon the pun.

Girls Night Out

Our girls night out was complimented by lots of laughter, good food, alcohol, and most importantly great friends. We had a ball, and its sure to be a regular feature from now on.

Do you have girls/guys nights?

I spend the weekend shopping at a designer carpark sample sale, trying out a new coffee joint, finding a gorgeous beige trench from witchery, going to the rugby, winning a bet on how much our team would lose by, weight training at the gym, and attending an infamous sunday session for a very good friend's birthday. Phew, I'm knackered. Thank god its a long weekend coming up.

Bunny Got Nailed

I saw a wonderful oversize knit with bunny face (ears and all!) by Fairground in a magazine a little while back, and it was instant love. Unfortunately it was not instant gratification as I trawled the internet far and wide [(dot)com, (dot)co(dot)uk, etc] trying to hunt down what I believe to be the most effing fabulously fantastic knit in all of history. I even tried calling the number listed in the magazine to hunt down the cape/wrap, with no luck. It was the wrong number and the American girl on the phone had no clue as to why I was hunting down a 'bunny'!

But no fear, I wasn't giving up that easily. I resolved to head out to some funkier stores to see if they stocked Fairground and to keep calling until I found Fairground's damn number. Obsessive much?

So today, on the one day that I was actually too busy to think about the 'Bunny Got Nailed' wrap by Fairground, I actually stumbled upon it. Accidentally. Fortune? Coincidence? Luck? Whatever it is, I'm ecstatic! Look forward to seeing this baby in a post coming to you soonest.

Another thing to note? Seek out Fairground. You WILL be impressed.

Elemental

Oh my!

Perth is recovering from a horric storm that caused over $100 million worth of damage. Yikes.

It hit yesterday at 4pm. The sun suddenly disappeared, the sky darkened to a dull grey and then it started hailing. Golf ball-size hail stones. That break windows in houses and windshields on cars, not to mention dent cars throughout the city. We fared pretty well (just some minor flooding). The aftermath in the form of news/photos is shocking though. Mudslides, roads turned to rivers, trees uprooted, cars dented and glass broken, and of course the beauty of the red red sunset after the chaos of the storm.

Here's hoping everyone in Perth fared okay in that crazy mother of a storm.


On a more optimistic tone, here's some pics from the (lazy and lovely) weekend...

I found Simon at a quirky litte artsy shop in the city, and fell in love straightaway. Thank god he was on sale, because I knew I couldn't walk out of the funky, over-priced shop without him. Bless. And Stuart got to pick his name....I think it suits.

How's the weekend panning out for you?

This chowder was to die for!


Stuart and I celebrated our 4th anniversary recently, and to mark the occasion we had a fabulous orgasmic meal at a restaurant quite literally on the Swan River. The view we had at the dinner was phenomenal...

As we crossed the bridge over the road that separates the restaurant and the parking lot after dinner, some guy came rushing up to me and told me that his girlfriend loved my shoes and then proceeded to ask me where I got them. Dontcha just love that. And when I told her they were sourced off of ebay, I swear I saw her walk just that little bit faster towards the parking lot. To hunt down a pair for herself on ebay, p'haps? You've got to love how shoes can do that to girls :)

And Stuart, love you to bits. Thanks for putting up with me....well, with me and Simon ;)
