Twinkle twinkle

Delicate rose gold, tiny star, just enough to make you look twice. Today I treated myself to a beautiful Van Rycke necklace which I’ve had my eye on for what feels like forever! I don’t think this will be coming off anytime soon. Purchased from Love Story, in Mosman Park.

 

 

Like mother like daughter

My mum is by far the most creative person I know. For as long as I can remember she has been tinkering with this and creating that – the screen printing phase, the mosaic phase, the sewing phase, the card making phase….

When I moved out of home she swiftly turned my bedroom into her “studio” so she could create beautiful things far away from the distractions of the house (namely my dad!). And beautiful things, she does make. Her latest, and I’d say most enduring phase, is jewellery making. She specialises in making beautiful necklaces, earrings, bracelets, brooches and gift tags out of polymer clay. Oh, and she also blogs! She is one clever lady, even if I do say so myself.

 

 

 

If you’re in Perth and you’re creatively inclined, she and a host of other local talents are going to be displaying their wares at the Boutique Markets in March at Burswood Entertainment Complex. Perth event details are below and all other cities can find event info here.

Ginger & Smart

Ginger & Smart are one of my favourite Aussie labels. Their perfect mix of masculine cuts and girly prints is always a winning combination in my eyes and their AW collection, Curio, does not disappoint.

Rubix cube

There’s no better sound than the post man slowing down past your house, the swing of letterbox door, the thump of your parcel being delivered and the sound of him speeding away again. You know the wait is finally over. My Therapy Rubix flats finally arrived today, and you know they’re going to be on my feet tomorrow!
