Mood Board Monday {Taking Flight}

New week and I'm back in on the right day AGAIN. Who wouldda thunk it. This weeks theme is an interesting one which really had me stumped..."taking flight". So what do you think of when you hear the words taking flight? I had several ideas - birds, chasing seagulls, airports, planes, so I just ran with a random mix of whatevers.
  1. Take flight bracelet - pick up sticks jewelery company 
  2. Con Air blue ray - now that's one flight I don't wanna be taking (I do however love this movie - JB HIFI
  3. Hot air ballooning - through Red Balloon
  4. Airplane charm pendant - Tiffany & Co (Hey a girl can dream, can't she?)

Aussie Curves : Fabulous Festival

Well I'm going to cheat a little this week for the festival post. Next week I have a work conference and our main day is a festival of sorts. The theme is Childhood. So think like a child, dress as your childhood hero, dress as something from your childhood, be all bright and rainbowy...whatever floats your childhood boat. There will be games and activities in child themes. So yeehaww a childhood "festival" it is.

So this is where the cheating comes in. A few weeks ago we had a meeting with a very similar theme. I'm wearing essentially the same outfit but with a few minor changes to accommodate for the "Hey, I'm from Melbourne, are you are trying to kill me Sydney with your 30 degree temps". So rather than putting it all together just to take a pic, I'm gonna rehash my last photos. Being the photo whore I am though, I'll be back with updated Sydney pics.

Hair bows : $2 type shop
Necklace : Big W

Mood board Monday {Hexagonal}

Hexagons seem to be a key design statement right now with them popping up just about in every facet of design: fashion, art, home wears and even beauty.




Some look great, some are ummm interesting. But hey, it's Amber Rose. She's so stunning that even hexagon glasses look awesome on her. 

Anyway, on to my picks for the week.
         2. Origami coffee table - West Elm 
         3. Hive vases - West Elm 
         4. Wooden hexagon beaded necklace

Now it just so happens that I was hotfooting it around the gorgeous Melbourne the last two days and because in my spare time (read anytime we were in the car) I was trying to write this blog post, I had hexagons on the mind. Seriously, I was tripping over hexagons left, right and center. I've snapped a few pics as proof. I would have snapped more but the husband was starting to get just a tad testy with all the "Hey, wait. I've gotta get a pic of this" moments.
