September One

I'm in love with homemade products. I would say I'm addicted. There's a sweet thrill when you make something that not only works, but is cheaper and better for you than the regular stuff. Next up, hairspray. I'm ran out a few months back and I'm missing it.

Lemon Hairspray

2 Large Lemons
2 C Water
2 T Vodka

Slice and boil the lemons in the water until reduce to half.
Strain and add the vodka.
Pour into a spray bottle and shake well.

When life gives you lemons, just say, fuck the lemons and bail

August Seventeen

I'm still on the summer buzz.
It's so freaking cold at the moment, I can't help but dream about the summer.
These swimsuits are so SUPER cute.

August Sixteen

This is what we did with our Saturday. 
Nick bought a bunch of hand printed posters off etsy and he wanted to put them up. 
He said should I laminate them, I said no way!
Just smack up a bull clips on nails and then you can swap them out as you please with minimal damage to the wall and the posters. Idea via design sponge, nails and clips from the local $2 shop. 

We also put up this big Sonic Youth poster above the mantelpiece, 
but it turned out smaller than I'd imagined. 
I just finished the anchor cross stitch after getting some more thread (duh!) 
and the Home Sweet Home is mid-framing. I'm still thinking about the bunting?!
We have a bunch of botanical prints to properly hang in the bedroom. Next weekend I think.

Ok... um. Pretty illustrations for pretty dresses.
Just getting some summer inspiration whilst it's kind of snowing outside.

August Twelve

Dream dress #1
Yes those are velvet polkadots.
So not my size so I won't be buying it. 
But a dream dress none the less.

August Eight

More crazy shoe lust. 
These would be perfect for everything (in my dreams). 
Last time I walked past these in a shop window, I knocked my head on the glass trying to get closer to them. *sigh*

August Seven

I was pointed to these pretty but pointy shoes by the Topshop blog
I love the 50s shape.

August Six

Clear glitter sparkle eye glasses are a great idea! 
Kind of like sparkly jelly shoes or glitter hair gel amazing.
I think I'd want less cat eye shape and more sparkles

August Four

It's my birthday
and my 101st post. 

What the shiz. How did I become 23??? 
Ok, maybe I'll be 21 again. That'd be alright.

This is some of what I got for prezzies. 
Most of them are from Nick. 
He spoils me.
 The prints and the tea towel are from Nick, 
the retro hair curler is from Emma 
and the painted glass+jug are from Nick's friend Kylie.
Time to hang all the pictures and then curl my hair. Whoop

August Three

Today I slept in. I love to sleep more than anything. There's not a lot that will get me out of bed. It's amazing I still have a job because I am late most days thanks to my absolute love of sleep. Being on holiday for the last week and a half has allowed me to sleep in later than I usual would. Anyway, when I did finally get out of bed, we had a bit to do. I got a haircut, or rather a trim. It was cheap and turned out very well. I am happy. A trip over to Grey Lynn for the doctor and we stopped in at the junk shop, where the man bought (another) botanical print and I picked a cool glass drink dispenser/mixer. I hope it still works.

August Two

We had a lovely long weekend away, eating, drinking, playing games and sleeping in at a bach in Onemana. 
In a trip to town, I picked up these kooky monkey salt and pepper shaker at a junk shop just off the main road. I also got some more sheets at the church shop to try out patterns for the summer.
I love my mid-winter holiday.
