Waves and the Both of Us

How beautiful is this picture? I love the fact that it has 3 gorgeous girls in near-to-nothing dresses, and then mountains in the background with snow! breathtaking, isn't it?
Sorry for my absence of late- been very busy with exams. All over soon though- we finish on the 2nd of december, which is pretty impressive seeing as at my old school we finished on the 21st...
i will try to post more often. sorry :(

love and live light!

Outfit Post...

Hello all :)
This is what i wore out for dinner the other night (well, last night actually) with some black ankle boots. The dress was $2 from an op shop (i know! crazy, huh?) and the belt was $1 from one too (its a beautiful, vintage belt made of straw or something, with a brass buckle- so excited when i found it!)
I have uploaded my pic and will post tomorrow of what i wore to the lavender farm- the photos turned out really nice!
And still looking for some advice- please please PLEASE read my last 2 posts and answer them by comment?! Or you can always email me :)
Thanks my lovelies,

Are roses blue and violets red?

Hey darlins
If you have 2 seconds (literally, you'll only need 2 seconds) check out this website.

I will upload the photos from the weekend soon... I'm not very good with that sort of thing :)
And i'm still looking for some tips about wearing high heels- if you can help me, please read my last post! I have just been told (by my lovely mother) that i am allowed to start, but don't know where or how to learn to wear them or anything. So help- Please!

Love and Live Light!

P.S sorry about the random title- its a great song by Paloma Faith- you should download some songs by her! She is amazing! Try "Stone Cold Sober" and "New York"

Hello All...

Sorry about the terrible photos- they were on my ipod, and i uploaded them to my mac :)
I thought you might all like to see photos of me at my new school. Well these were taken on my birthday, when we had a reflection day and learned about Christian sexuality...
Anyway, when the teacher left the room, one of the girls quickly got out her camera and took some photos. Understandably, I'm on the very left of each photo with the brown terrible hair (what was i thinking?)
Anyway so they are them. My closest friends are also in there but by the time i have finished you will be asleep, so i wont :)
And very good news! Do you all remember how quite a few posts ago, i said how my mum wouldn't let me wear high heels until i had good posture , and i kept my shoulders back? Well recently i have been making a really good effort, and she has finally said i can start! Any tips on learning? Which types should I start on?
Will post pics from shopping yesterday later, as i am going out later today for lunch and i want to post what i am wearing- a new outfit! I am very excited!
Okay my lovelies, goodbye


Long day today- lots of shopping (vintage, of course) and a pool party tonight.
Will post what i bought tomorrow.
Sorry about the terrible post- i did have a better one that i saved as a draft, but it wont publish as my most recent post (its called Meet Abi and its further down...)
I hope you all had a great Saturday and make the most of the weekend!

Love to all xxx

No harm will come if you just skipalong

I love that song. And that picture. I am easily pleased :)

Good day, my lovelies


Picnic in the countryside

Well my chickens yesterday i went to a picnic in the country. I haven't ever been to anything like this, but it is with the cancer research group my grandmother and mother are part of. Was very good :)So far today i have been to 3 op shops (op shops are the love of my life- just about everything i own is vintage and from there) I have bought a tortishell wallet and some beautiful jackets. And back of to school tomorrow :(
I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Love Kat


Meet Abi

Meet Abi Penhale. What more can i say? Isn't she georgous?
My favourite model is Gemma Ward, but i am very biased. Her father is my auntie's doctor, so we have a "connection". Aha I wish! But i do love her! Did you guys see the Black Balloon, with her in it? Was it good?
TTFN, my chickens

Boys will be Boys.. or Girls

Why do men love dressing up as women?
I just dont get it. Its hilarious, but I just don't get it.

I went to a costume party not long ago, and absolutely loved it! it was so much fun, getting ready and then seeing what everyone else was wearing. We are thinking of organising one for my mum's 50th birthday- a while away, yes, but hopefully it will happen and be a great sucess. But the theme: 80's, Celebrity, ...the choices goes on! What do you think, and what would you dress up as?

The Anticipated Return of Winnie the Pooh

A.A Milne's son, Christopher Robin, with his teddy bear. He wrote it about his son- how sweet!
I wish my dad would do that for me :P
Some Mark Burgess illustrations for the new book

Over eighty years since Winnie-the-Pooh first delighted readers, David Benedictus takes us back to the Hundred Acre Wood for more adventures. Return to the Hundred Acre Wood allows readers to spend a few more treasured hours with the Best Bear in All the World. The authorized sequel to A. A. Milne's original Winnie-the-Pooh stories, by David Benedictus, Illustrated by Mark Burgess in the style of the original E. H. Shepard illustrations. The book seems to be a great likeness of the treasured tales by A.A. Milne, and i can't wait to get my hands on a copy. Winnie The Pooh was my sister's all time favorite, and so, being the oldest, the love of it has stayed with me instead of her (does that make sense?)
Here is a preview from the new book:

Eeyore, the grey donkey, was standing at the edge of the Hundred Acre Wood, staring at a patch of thistles. He had been saving them for a Rainy Day and was beginning to wonder whether it would ever rain again and whether, by the time it did, there would be any juice left in them, when Pooh and Piglet came by.

"Hallo, little Piglet," said Eeyore. "Hallo, Pooh. And what are you doing around here?"

"We came to see you, Eeyore," said Pooh.

"A quiet day, was it Pooh? An if-we-haven't-anything-better-to-do sort of day? How very thoughtful."

Piglet wondered how it was that every conversation with Eeyore seemed to go wrong.

"Time hanging heavy, was it, Piglet? And, Pooh, I would thank you not to stand on those thistles."

"Which ones would you like me to stand on?" asked Pooh.

"But, Eeyore," squeaked Piglet, "it's C-C-C-"

"Have you swallowed something, little Piglet? Not a thistle, I trust?"

"It's Christopher Robin," said Pooh. "He's coming back."

While Pooh was talking, Eeyore went rather still. Only his tail moved, brushing away an imaginary fly.

"Well," he said, rather huskily, then paused. "Well. Christopher Robin … That is to say … heretofore …" he blinked quickly several times. "Christopher Robin coming back. Well."

How adorable is it?? I cant wait to get it! Anyways, sweetnesses, i'm off to do a spot of shopping in a suburb called Leaderville (which, may i add, is the spot Beyonce did her shopping in when she was on tour the other week) so i have to go, but i look forward to posting again tomorrow, and, hopefully, reading my endless amounts of comments (hint hint :)

So, my lovelies,

Love and live light!

Velvet on a cold, stormy night....

A 1930's Velvet Gown
Turquoise velvet shoe

Velvet accessories

Does anybody apart from me find these pictures absolutely breathtaking? I love velvet: the feel, the shine, the dark, rich colours. some of those dresses are just amazing.
At the moment i really want a velvet blazer. that would be amazing. Probably in a dark purple *sigh*
Yesterday my mum and i found a beautiful antique velvet dress- it is floor length and has the top part (from the neckline to just under the boobs, and the sleeves) velvet, with gorgeous roping in the same colour. The sleeves are all droopy, and it really feels like a dress straight out of Romeo and Juliet or something. And to make it an even better buy, it was only $8. so exciting!
Sorry about the lack of posts- my laptop is broken, so i am having trouble doing anything at the moment. I just came back from melbourne, where i used to live, and i went over with my laptop, my camera, my ipod and my phone. I returned only with my ipod. I am going to DIE without my technology. My phone was stolen when i was shopping, my laptop broke and i forgot my camera. What to do, what to do.
Anyway i hope my lovelies are having a good time doing whatever it is they're doing, and now im off to write a draft of my next post so i wont be so boring all the time!
Love and live light!
