Friday's Frock

..a new blog to link back to? Check. Some effortlessly beautiful styling in Friday's Frock? Check. Equipped at my desk with a good strong coffee? Check. A trip back home (t'moro morning) to be packed with my girlfriend's wedding, a Birthday Brekky (yum), family time and catch-ups with people I love to bits? Check. Seems my w'end is sorted... Hope yours spins out all sorts of fun too!

Design file

Living in a tree-house via my bedroom window...
I mentioned I moved, right? The specs are: I took a hop skip and a JUMP into an apartment directly opposite my previous rental/tiny/studio/box to a gorgeous art-deco one bedroom DREAM. More to be posted on this (pics too)...for now, just trust me when I carry on about how amazing this thing is. On the top floor of a two-storey building housing 6 of us, I get to wake up every day and look right amongst the lush green tree tops that filter the morning sun's rays. Beautiful. Every morning, I take a second and think I'm living in a's picture perfect. Then my alarm rings from snooze and reality sets in to get me out of dreamworld and into work mode...
As I'm slowly making this gorgeous deco space my own, I'm on the hunt in every possible direction for inspiration from those who've done the same.  This Melbourne home is where I'm drawing a tonne of inspiration from at the moment. Melbourne designer Lucy Glad-Wright has done it all right...I can hear you agreeing with me!

This with that?


I am approaching my day with an attitude less-than-chirpy thanks to a very *quick and complete move to my new apartment over the weekend (frills of an IKEA visit and blisters to prove I pieced my furniture together included).  More to come about the move over the next few days. Spotting some witty advertising, thankfully, has done wonders for my Monday bluesomes. This downright brilliant ad for Harvey Nichols Accessories Required campaign by Y&R Dubai won the gong at Cannes Lions 2011.

A Stupid Dream

In 2011, Diesel had the stupid idea of making a country like no other. A brave new world for the braves and terminally stupid. For those feeling out of place in today's world, Diesel brings us an entirely new and stupid society: a tropical utopia. A place where true stupidity can thrive and flourish. I caught glimpse of this brilliant campaign as it crossed my path the other morning on one of Melbourne's city-bound trams. Smirks led to giggles led to blog post! Brilliant. Watch out world...
via - if you do nothing else at your desk today, don't be stupid and check this out!

"Art" Clokey

Gumby and gang invade google! It's been a while (20ish years?) since I'd wait to see little Gumby and his friends for my kiddie-arvo-tv-time. Stumbling across Google's latest search engine art boosted my hump day into kid like giddiness once more. Having touched millions worldwide, Google's Doodle for Art Clokey honours this stop motion pioneer, Mr. Arthur "Art" Clokey, just perfectly.

“The Google Doodle is the perfect tribute to my fathers work,” says Joe Clokey, Art Clokey’s son and creator of Gumby’s new website. “Art’s life and film career were ahead of their time. My dad would have been thrilled to be connected with Google in this way.”

{Art Clokey, October 12, 1921- January 8, 2010}

I do!


My girlfriend got engaged!! I'm yet to see the bling she sports so till then I'm keeping myself busy checking out some other beautiful rocks like these black diamond alternatives. You might remember this lot and these that I posted about some time back. While I'm on the topic of all things wedding, these beautiful wedding posts have kept me happy as I'm wrapped in my covers, a little under the weather and taking a day off with tea and laptop by my side...

When inspired by all things organic, local and bohemian, something as beautiful as THIS happens. I said my bestie got engaged? Well, this in no way is a hint but I just think it's perfect that I found my way over to THIS post. Bride-to-be won the gong for "friend of the year" when she went all out for her besties with this pretty, girlie luncheon.
