During my humble blogging journey i have come across many opportunities that have filled me with such gratitude. I still to this day feel so lucky that my small corner of vintage rambling is read by so many likeminded creative people like you! Since being nominated and announced as a top 25 blogger for Kidspot Voices of 2013 in the Style and Beauty category i have been in a constant state of flushed cheeks and pure joy.
I flew to Sydney and spent the weekend with a group of incredible bloggers and have come home brimming with creative ideas and a notebook filled with furious scratchings that i am putting into motion one at a time!
After appearing to be lost looking for the venue of the masterclass i simply navigated my way by listening out for the flurry of ladies voices coming from a room not too far away! It is actually quite nerve wracking being in a room with so many people you admire and seem to have a creepy amount of knowledge about their lives..conversations were started with "Hi..I know you..well i dont know you but i feel like i do" we were given lots of information and tips from successful bloggers and the lovely Hailey Bartholomew shared her journey into film making and now childrens books it was very emotional but wonderful to hear her talk.
After the masterclass it was off to the after party where i may have hovered over the cake pop stall a little too long....and was turning to face the wall to shove it in my mouth all in one go (classy all the way)
What i loved was meeting bloggers from all categories, parenting, food & lifestyle it was nice to connect with bloggers that were not necessarily all fashion related.
I had such an amazing time met some very inspirational ladies and have made memories that will last with me.
I will be uploading a post with the outfits i wore over the weekend during the week as well.
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend Xx

So over the weekend i decided that i would treat myself to a new vintage dress and drive into Fremantle to visit She Seldom Blushes. They always have an amazing collection of unique dresses and are always so helpful and excited about the clothes which makes buying them even nicer!I came home with this adorable poppy print dress the fabric is so light and its in fantastic condition. Since it was my grandfathers favourite flower i have a small attachment to it already.
The rain also stayed hidden away all weekend which meant i could park dwell for a few hours before seeing The Kooks (which was amazing) it was the first time i had seen them live and i couldnt fault them! it may be the last outdoor concert i can go to for awhile before Winter is in full swing!
I also managed to squeeze in a vintage hair tutorial over the weekend that i will upload on Wednesday something very quick and easy! So keep an eye out!
Hope your week has started swell!
