But Beautiful

The weather's been nothing but beautiful in Melbourne. The sunshine has had no rest! "Don your brightest hats, shoes, dresses, and pants, boys and girls," it says. I happily oblige.





Bought these babies on Friday night- I persuaded two others to purchase them too after I did. I love sharing love!

Wearing American Apparel tricot nylon leggings in coral ice, Cotton On singlet, Youlah top from 'Hello Gorgeous!', Diva oversized CZ studs, orbit shoes from Santini, new hair courtesy David from Falcone Collins St!

Yesterday morning it was all bustlin' and happenin' at Queen Victoria market.


Don't you love that pre-Christmas atmosphere when everything's buzzing and there's a lot of everything everywhere (perhaps minus the stressed and cranky shoppers)?


It makes me think of the families where there will be no Christmas turkey or lamb, no presents under the Christmas tree or those who will be celebrating Christmas without a family member...

Do something for someone like this, this Christmas. Try World Vision Must Have Gifts or get your presents gift-wrapped at Myer for Vision Australia.
