sour milk.

Stop. Breath in. Your touch makes my head spin at the same time, all is still. I hold my breath, not daring to exhale. my lungs ache. I tilt my head to the left, thoughts screaming but so silent. I pretend that I can't still feel the heat of your fingertips. One moment felt like forever.

I found some old poems and writing from when I was younger. It's so angsty, I used to write so often. I just sort of stopped. I look back on it and I have mixed emotions.

Here are some photo's that I have taken in the last few months
, thought I would share some of my own work for a change!

My day is going incredibly slow, it started with sour milk and has not yet ended.
Once I am home, all shall be better.

Sundays are FUNdays

I have had such a nice day today, actually a nice weekend. I have just taken some time out and had some 'me' time. Today my flat mate and I sat on our balcony at some cheese and wine then went for a dip in the pool. It was really relaxing!

I have been busy creating and decided to take some snaps for proof! Just in case you guys didn't believe me!

So here we are, some preliminary sketches that will eventually turn into something bigger and nicer! (I hope)



In some other news, my best friend and I are conjuring up a plan for a new business. It's really exciting times at the moment, it's still at the ideas stage at the moment, but I really hope we go through with it. It's going to take a lot of work, but I think with both of our abilities it could be really successful. So you will have to stay tuned for that one.

Well it's another week of working for me. I feel really good going into this week though. Maybe because I have relaxed so much! I hope your weekend was great and your week ahead goes quickly so you can have another awesome weekend!

Not long now till the Easter bunny comes!
Oh speaking of...I had the best choc chip hot cross bun today! Naughty! Wine cheese and hot cross buns, means I'm getting this bum to the gym!

Marinated chicken, with vege and mash.

What was the last thing you bought?
Drinks last night. Wich was a terrible idea, I still feel sick from what I drank!

But I do love pencil skirts teamed with a pretty shirt and great shoes. I wear black alot, very slimming ha! But I am also a bit alternate my friends call me a hippy, ha! so I like flowy dresses and skirts, and my friend got me a jingly silver anklet wich I love! If I had more money for clothes I would be so happy! Then I would have more of a style! oh and if I lived in cooler climates.



What is your most challenging goal right now?
Staying healthy, getting fit. Its a challenge but is a huge reward in itself, I am feeling good and getting fitter by the day, so Im really excited to see what I am like at the end of 2009!

sweet and low

"Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be." - Zig Ziglar



I had a bit of an epiphany, I always say I'm going to do something and rarely actually do it.


After uni I have been so lazy with my artwork, with my major in illustration I had to finish my assignments or fail. That was the ultimatum. Now it's like I can do it later, or I'm too busy, or I find something else to do.

I miss it, but I can never find the time for it. But this will change, I hope by me saying this to all you bloggers will give me some incentive to get my bum into gear.

I see people creating amazing things around me, and I want to be the one doing those amazing things that people look at and think are wonderful.

I also need to make some new business cards, I really need to get my act together, I didnt spend 3 years in uni to be lazy! This is sort of a pep talk for me and is helping me by getting my thoughts out! I apologize for a boring post!!

Hopefully this weekend will be a productive one! Free of distractions.

wine and red shoes

All pics by me :) for a change


I havn't been to a good gig for a while, but have been soaking myself in music as usual, buying 9 cd's on Saturday, so you can imagine what my weekend has consisted of.

Tracks that are on high rotation at the moment:
(no relation to those purchased sat)


1. Breathe Me - Sia
(I have her album 'healing is difficult') This song is far different from her usual stuff, It's really powerful to me for some reason, I get incredibly emotional listening to it.

2. Bones - Josh Pyke

Again alot different to his usual style, versatile musicians get a big tick from me.

3. Hearts a mess - gotye

What can I say, just incredible instruments and sound, with his voice to top it off

4. White rose parade - Lady of the sunshine

This album I am truly excited to get my hands on, the direction he took is surprising but I am really excited to hear more, this style suits.

5.My Girls - Animal Collective
Normally I don't really go for this style of music, something there makes me really like this track though.

6.Taper Jean Girl - Kings of leon
The now phenomenon band, I love all of their albums, especially this song, it's just too catchy to pass up. I like the older albums, the radio hasn't made me hate them. yet.

7. Basket Case - Greenday
Because its a oldie and I got the album new for $4! Yes ridiculous I know!

8. Louis Armstrong - greatest hits
I own this record and I have so much time for it. I get so consumed in his music, I am not even sure why, I just like it alot.

9. 7 days - The Butterfly Effect
Because I went through all of highschool listening to them, they were my escape and I still love them and will continue to, even though I've moved on from the more rock/metal styles. Boges voice pains me to listen to it, (in a good way) I just think his emotions rip right through you.

Thats a wrap for now, It's late I have work in the morning and nothing more to babble about.

Good night, sweet dreams.

life in polaroids



Sometimes the mad hatter comes for tea.


He follows the yellow brick road.




I put on my finest dress.


And after a big day, I sleep in my bed fit for a princess.

Where's my groove...?

Good question. I'm not sure where it is, but I hope it comes back soon. I feel a bit unbalanced at the moment. I've just had a rough week, nothing in particular happened, just a lot of little things all piling up. But anyhow, I am very much looking forward to my majito's on the weekend, with my home grown mint! Sitting by the pool relaxing, drawing, playing my records, sleeping and hopefully mastering Neil Young's heart of gold on guitar!

At the moment I'm working on my own scribble project. It's fun, I have it here at work and just doodle away sometimes, I'm looking forward to the end result. It's a very clever concept. You all should do one too! It gets me back into my drawing which is great and something I need to do a lot more often!

How great is the photo up top, I don't know what it is, I just saw it and fell in love with it. It's by Ben Butcher, I'm not even sure how I came across his blog, but I'm glad I did.

I love when you find random things, just by randomly 'surfing' the net. I also love it when something so funny happens it will still put a smile on your face days later. Like last night, a person at yoga was so relaxed they fell asleep and started snoring! Poor person, but gee I found it funny, they didn't mind the traffic noises outside, the instructor speaking, everyone elses breathing, the air con whirring. They just drifted off. I wish I could block out so much!

This is a bit of an everything post, lot's of things just chucked in, but that's what my head is like at the moment, thoughts everywhere, not in order or even make sense! But yay for Wednesday! Hump day as they say. It's down hill from here!

I'm off to get some lunch, and be naughty and grab a coffee! I have been doing extremely well, I don't rely on coffee to get me through the day anymore, it's more a treat now!

Enough of my rambling!
Have a great day

Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day.

I’ve learnt a lot about you




In turn much about me too

I travelled across the sea
I wept for you













Emotions run deep
Between us friend
The time will come
For us again

We’re tired, we’re tired now
This ship almost ran a ground
We’ll lie and rest now
I’ll dream of you

Emotions run deep
Between good friends
But i do believe
In us again

I’ve heard, i’ve heard it said
That love, real love has no end
A cup overflowing now
I will believe, i must believe


Sarah Blasko




Sorry for my absence, I have been busy with lots of training and meetings...lot's of boring stuff! Not the most inspiring activities! However yoga tonight, time to clear my head and hopefully come out feeling fresh and vibrant!
