♥ This woman has a SERIOUS case of Bridezilla-itis. Is she for real? “if you think by affordable its going to be a $25 forever 21 dress then your going to the wrong wedding”. Amazing.

Wonderful quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The man is a legend.

Dancers among us is very, very cool – love the reaction of the people in the background in some of these shots!

Biggest tattoo spelling fails – how does this actually happen? Did all of these tattoos happen before the days of smart phones? I don’t understand!

What fashion week really looks like. So funny to see this behind the scenes look, and testimony to how amazing some photographers are!

All very light and fun today – some Friday jollies for you 🙂 Does that sounds rude?

Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy a bit of extra sleep and time to dream. Loving the extra light daylight savings is bringing us here in Melbourne, very good for the mood and I seem to get more done when the days are longer. Hope to bring you a couple of posts over the weekend, so check back.

Friday Flights of Fancy

Apologies for the sparse posts this week – I am in Sydney and the sun is shining so brightly I just want to be out and about! Check out my view at lunch today – incredibly cool.

♥ They found a new kind of monkey in the Congo! It’s eyes are amazingly human.

♥ This article on adopting zen practices at work is so good, and definitely contains advice I need to draw on more often.

♥ Tips for buying a wedding dress online

♥ Artist Ulric Collette has created the second part of his series of portraits of the genetic similarities of the members of his family – very interesting and kinda creepy all at once!

♥ I am so excited that the ladies of the One Fine Day wedding fair have announced the second event on the first weekend of February 2013! The ladies who run this show are incredibly talented and I am definitely going to do my best to get to Sydney for this. For anyone who wants gorgeously original, exciting and unique ideas for a down to earth and expressive wedding day, this fair is a must visit.

So beautiful! At the inaugural One Fine Day fair earlier this year there was a swing dancing display, food and cake tastings and a beautiful real life proposal… Can’t wait to immerse myself in all that loveliness.

Thanks to Jess from Silk Truffle Photography for the use of her delightful images.

Have a fantastic weekend wherever you are, enjoying the pleasures that the weekend has to offer. I’m off to eat Mexican, visit the Paddington market and head to see Kenny Larkin dj at The Spice Cellar…and making the most of the Sydney sun of course! L x

Friday Flights of Fancy

A quick FFF today, for a couple of reasons – firstly, I have an exciting night out tonight, and secondly I have been so busy this week that I have not been able to browse the net and discover any exciting stories/snippets/general internet goodness. Work has kicked my bum reaaaal good!

♥ My New Years Day is sorted – how incredibly exciting does this day sound! Let them eat cake is a journey into musical decadence, garden party opulence and culinary excess… Um that sounds like EXACTLY how I want to welcome in the New Year!

♥ Chanel’s Bollywood collection is absolutely gorgeous.

♥ I want Roald Dahl mugs!

♥ An oldie but a goodie – This is Glamorous’ take on iPhone photography and great photo apps. If you have seen the photography on that blog, you’ll know the advice is worth taking

♥ This dramatic reading of LMAO’s ‘Sexy and I Know It’ is just too, too good! Wiggle wiggle wiggle…

Right, I am about to go make myself a watermelon lemonade and add a splash of vodka 🙂

We are off to see Steffi tonight – what you got for us lady?

That actually ended up more substantial than I thought! Have a fantastic Friday night xx

Psychedelic fantasy by Joe Charley

Oooh lala, its that Friday kind of feeling…

♥ I am having heart palpitations over Audrey Kawasaki’s new paintings. One day I WILL own an original, I will, I will!

♥ In the late 19th and early 20th century some artists depicted what our world would look like in 2000. Check out the amusing results!

♥ Today marks 15 years since Princess Di died. What were you doing on that day? I still remember being at my friends house, and we had tried very unsuccessfully to wax my armpits. (There may have been blood). I was 15, and pretty unfazed by the whole thing, but thinking of Princes William and Harry walking behind her coffin still makes a tear spring to my eye.

♥ Speaking of tears, I ran a film screening last night of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, which is a must watch, especially for those living in Australia. It is such a topical, powerful and moving film, and I for one am really keen to be part of a movement which demands more from its leaders, who play on racial fear to get votes.

♥ On a lighter note – celebrities reading mean tweets is gold

♥ What about the Charlotte Dawson twitter issue? The internet can be a scary place sometimes! I agree with the sentiment of not saying anything to someone online that you would not say to them in person.

♥ What, no wedding related links? What am I thinking! Harking back to my Great Gatsby wedding post last week, check out this 1920s wedding over on Rock n Roll bride. Unbelievably authentic!

♥ Some crazy kids hooked up an ipod to a squid and the electrical impulses caused colour changes on the squid’s skin. This blows my mind! Sheeeet, two flash backs to being 15 in one post!

I’m about to pour myself a cheeky pinot and enjoy a movie date with my boy. Tomorrow I am doing a visual merchandising short course which will help me to set up beautiful market stores and settings for the online store I hope to have up and running in the next couple of months. Throw in a Mad Men party, a call to my mum and a 21 degree sunny Sunday (hey, this is Melbourne ok, we take what we can get!) and I am a happy camper this weekend.

Have a good one sweethearts. L x
