saturday. new adventures

In 2 months I'm moving out of home and in with my partner. How exciting/scary. There are a lot of things you have to think about and investigate when you move out for the first time. Rent, bills, furniture, food, transport...
Today we went shopping to price everything we need to buy for our new place. Fridge, vacuum, microwave, kitchen appliances, utensils, linen etc. It felt good. Exciting. A new adventure.

monday. hunting

i am constantly hunting for something - that perfect pair of boots, a certain vintage skirt, a bell-adorned bracelet...

at the moment, i'm on the lookout for a new coin purse. my current wallet, a black faux snakeskin clutch, is worn down and the zipper has not worked for weeks! i'm hunting for a coin purse that won't break the bank. Something tall that i can fit a few cards in along with some change and most importantly my keys!
Etsy ( is PERFECT for little hand-made things like this - but oh the shipping costs! almost as dear as the purse itself! hunting around Myer today, they were all $30+ ... for something so small, there's no way i'm paying more than $20!

Here are a few i've fallen in love with on Etsy (courtesy of fabricstory & littlecottonstudio)

hmm... i think i will order the first one pictured! total of $22.99 including shipping! score!
