Through the Looking Glass: Linzi Carter

IMG_3048

Linzi Carter, an up and coming local artist, has just spent the whole weekend painting a mural titled Portraits of Spring at Karrinyup shopping centre (our local hang).  Linzi, originally from country WA, paints the kind of paintings & murals you want to see everywhere. It's bad-mood-curing art.  Happy, bright, inviting and lively art.  After chatting to Linzi herself, you can easily see that her personality is reflected in her work and that she truly loves what she does.

Bare Those Shoulders!

streetstyle11012-web


FIRST DAY OF SPRING! YEAH!

Remember back to last Summer when I was complaining about the dearth of inspiration that surrounds trying to get dressed in 30 degree heat?  Well this year I am starting early and collecting ideas and clothes to see me through my most despised time of year.  Thanks to the Northern hemisphere Summer just gone by, I have a few super-obvious trend predictions for us in a couple of months:

1. Off-shoulder things will be the cool new thang.  Waaaay more forgiving than crop tops if you've been slothing all Winter. 
2. Playsuits will continue to live, along with the unfortunate oblong-butt-silhouette that they bring.
3. Dressing like a hobo a la Bassike will be me and every other man and his dog's favourite get-up (although who else can't bring themselves to wear those drop-crotch pants for fear of looking like you have a giant diaper on?)   

What do you think will make it big this Summer?

P.S. unfortunately starting at 6:30 isn't conducive to responding in a timely fashion to the ice-bucket challenge that Ditza so kindly nominated us for (although my legs would love an ice-bath following yesterday's City to Surf!).  But we'd still love you to read a little about motor neurone disease & perhaps drop some coin into our local MND association here!

Only one more sleep until I don my lycra and pound the pavement!  Anyone else doing the C2S this year?

Flatlay Truths

Untitled
Elle Australia Sept 14

You see pictures like this on Instagram almost every day & I've sometimes pondered who on earth simultaneously has available to them fresh blooms, a magazine editorial - preferably hot off the press, a plain white background AND not to mention some daylight to spare.

Well folks, the stars aligned.  My mumma had a birthday & received roses from PX (that's right, where are mine I ask), my kind brother subscribed me to Elle Australia for my birthday, T bought me this white board from Bunnings for exactly this purpose, AND most importantly I've become a shift worker who has plenty of daylight to spare.

The things bloggers never tell you...

Sunday: A Photo Diary

Sunday is my favourite day by far.  It has always been (and always will be) a day to stay home and eat/play/relax (eat pray love? ha) with family without the pressure of checking off a task list, which seems to be the aim of most other days.

I'm working all of next Sunday so I thought I'd immortalise yesterday with a few snaps to look back on.  No point only taking photos of special occasions when days like these are the far more worthy.

As I said, there's no point trying to avoid stripes.  They're as inevitable as denim.
After wearing this same top for too many days in a row, I decided to top it off by wearing it just one more time for a travel planning escapade with PX.  We're off overseas in a month or so and so far we have only booked flights.  Eek!  Better stop blogging and get a move along.

Inspiration: Fresh Stripes


image

There is truly no point in attempting cold turkey on stripes.  Everyone would know that's a lost cause.  You can, however, freshen up stripes by choosing an alternate colour like equally-as-chic red & white.

A few weeks ago, whilst shopping in an extreme bad mood (strongly unadvisable if you're saving pennies), I picked up this tshirt from Zimmerman and am waiting for some warm Spring days to debut it.  Perhaps red stripe and floral... red stripe and distressed blue denim... red stripe and white jeans...

Oh the possibilities.

Lazy

I'm enjoying a lazy Saturday before the onslaught of the next term starts (7am ward rounds - what??).  Here's to the glorious sunshine today!
