coffee - productivity in a cup. sketches made whilst watching project runway last night. country road's latest sale (i'm in savings mode so really need to throw this away pronto!). today's to-do list - written on an old envelope complete with notes from katrina's latest amazing tutorial.
+ i'm wishing this vera wang dress was mine (via squid)
+ i'm wearing my new handmade woollen socks - they are rocking my world. did i mention they're handmade?
+ i'm working on new projects - and what better way to get inspired than with a new notebook. i picked up a couple when we were over in melbourne from meet me at mikes, only to return to nz and see one of them featured in an issue of fashion quarterly. i have never been so 'on-trend' in my life! ha
a couple of weeks ago i started my 50 things challenge inspired by jess of makeunder my life. we've done a lot of moving these past four years so i'm getting a lot better at only keeping things i love. that being said, i still can't walk past fashion magazines, ribbon or a pretty dress without my wallet somehow flying out of my pocket!
