friday. BriBry(ontour) live in Brisbane! #growtour

Bribry. What a gorgeous, charming, talented man he is. Saw his Brisbane gig on the #growtour tonight. Sweet little venue, at The Waiting Room @ West End. Right next to a Grill'd. Ayesha and I spent all night craving strawberry/lime rekorderlig, which we ended up sneaking out during signings to get. By the time we had had a full meal and a drink, the poor guy was still signing things and taking photos with a crowd of teenage girls. Not excluding us I must say, but he must be used to that by now.

Fairly sure Ayesha & I were the oldest ones there apart from the man himself. Felt a little out of place in a room of 14 year old girls, but once he started singing ugh. Just want to jump his face.

he signed my iphone case ughh

etsy favourites: feather butterfly hair clips

my current favourites (possible regular post series?) are feather butterfly hairclips.

i've been ordering and wearing feather butterfly hair clips for a while now - i simply love the way they look. i usually try and stay away from the crafty ones, going for a more 'real' look (i like to think people do a double-take when they see it passing by!).
as they are made literally of feathers they do seem to wear down fast depending on how often you wear them and how well you keep them. it's safe to say i haven't kept mine very well - i only have one large orange monarch butterfly left! my new order consists of more 'blingy' butterflies from just the one etsy seller BlissfulSilks. I've ordered 8 in total - red, green, black, and white. some jumbo, some smaller. I often wear my hair 'some up some down' and like to put one or two of them at the back to hide the bobby pins. here are a few pictures from my current order

very different to the kind i usually buy  (see below)
they do take a week or two to arrive in australia from overseas, but here's hoping they get here in time to take to europe! check them out here:
what are your etsy favourites?!

tuesday. sweet independence

Bit by bit we are filling our apartment with boxes and bits and bobs. The furniture is due to arrive later in the week, but in the meantime there's everything else! 

Check out this spice rack jack and I picked out on our Kmart spree last weekend - we've decided the top row is for spices and the bottom is for sprinkles and other ice cream toppings. Like chocolate chips! 


monday. bellabox au

A girl needs her beauty products, right? Moving boxes in car loads back and forth can be tiring, especially when you're moving to a second floor apartment. Luckily today I found joy in setting up my bathroom supplies! (Our unit has one main bathroom and one en suite - we each claimed our own)

I have quite a collection of sample sized beauty products from about a year of monthly sample box orders from BellaBox AU. I absolutely loved getting my cute little box in the mail each month filled with overseas brands and handy sample sized beauty products, but unfortunately it is a luxury I can no longer afford when moved out of home. I still have quite a few samples though, so it should last a while more i think!
