I think my obsession with Etsy has hit an all time high, i seem to be finding the most amazing dresses at a steal! Since we are almost…not quite there but almost…heading into Summer I have been going through my wardrobe and sorting out the essentials I will need to brave another round of Australian heatwaves! So far its lots of yellow (which I usually have stocked anyway) cooler cotton fabrics and floral prints! I don’t mind a little warmer weather but when it gets so hot your makeup is sliding down your face and no amount of roll-on is going to save your dress swimming in sweat…I officially sign off on Summer! (Although…. frozen grapes are something I am looking forward to..yummy)

 I have been having such an amazing week so far, lots of Lindy Hop and planning for the long weekend! I will be shooting with the amazing photographer Tegan again on Monday and spending the rest of the time with friends and shaking a tail feather at a dance social on Saturday night!

I hope you all have a swell weekend planned! Xx

The Vintage Parlour...

 photo Finalimage_zpsc18c7993.jpg

A few months ago i took up Swing Dancing again and its safe to say i am still just as obsessed as the last time i started a few years ago (if not more), i went with another company Perth Swing Dancing Academy and i am kicking myself i didnt join with them sooner, they are possibly the most lovely group of people i have ever met and were also lovely enough to ask me to host an hour of vintage hair how-to!

So if you live in Perth and have always wanted to master the pin curl or add a little vintage sass to your locks make sure you pop on over to this page to book your spot! (Plus if you have always wanted to give Swing Dancing a go there is a beginner class after our styling session) I would also be more than over the moon to meet some of my readers and have a champagne or two whilst gassbagging about anything and everything vintage!!!

 photo 1_zps491691a3.jpg Over the weekend i was lucky enought to do a test shoot with the most amazing photographer Tegan Ptasznyk who also has the most incredible Instagram account @filmgarden she has asked me to do a little photography project with her so there will be more photos coming soon for me to share, i must say it was so nice to have someone else take photos of me instead of my usual timer and run routine!

She is also the biggest sweetheart and i can tell i am going to have alot of fun doing these shoots in the coming months! I will love having these photos to look back on when im raving on about my youth days to my grandkids!!

Bright Bomb...

 photo _MG_0719_zps087235ef.jpg I'm so sorry it has taken a few days to get back into the swing of blogging, that would be about right..i have a few days off and i dissapear off the face of the earth! It was so lovely to switch off for a little while though and just have a little fun in a completely different country surrounded by different sights and smells...amazing!

I bought this amazing eye scorching dress before i left for Singapore as i wanted a few light fabric dresses to take with me...i instantly fell in love with the print and colour, i'm always drawn to the brighter colours and since i bought it online i was over the moon it fit perfectly!!! (I sometimes dont have such luck) Plus the fabric is basically uncrushable so i could shop, cram up on rides in Universal Studio and throw it on over my bathers without worrying i was going to look like i pulled it straight from the washing machine!

Since we are transitioning into Spring i think i will definitely be pulling this cute number out a few more times!!

I was lucky enough to be sent over with a group of amazing hairdressers for a Kerastase forum and since i am not the most travelled woman around i was literally bouncing around with excitement the whole trip!
