Collections: Books

 I was thinking about what to do for my next collections post and then it struck me, what's the biggest collection in this house? When bookshelves line the walls of almost every room the answer is pretty obvious...

We've got Penguin books...

old books...

children's books...

art books...

hardcover books...

and paper back books.

We've just got a lot of books...
and I didn't even photograph every bookshelf.

A lot of credit has to go to my parents who put together the bulk of this collection. Although I have contributed over the years, particularly during my three year literature degree, which I should also thank my parents for.

Books, I just can't imagine a world without them.

Photos From My Phone

I've always wanted to take photo's of the random things I see and like and share them with you. Unfortunately I can be a very forgetful and, some might say, lazy person. I rarely take the photos in the first place and almost never get them off my phone and onto my computer ready to upload.

Today that changes. I give a select group of photo's from my phone!

University of Queensland

Little Scooby, he was with us for almost 18 years and I miss him every day

I think this is UQ as well

Waiting for a bus... any bus

Molly, my brothers beautiful dog

A train station

Chandler shopping centre, Melbourne

Also UQ

Beautiful Wynnum

I saw this when I was walking home from Thea & Sami. If I swung my phone to the left you'd see a lot of grungy shop backs and some murky puddles from the recent rain fall.

My view of the Cultural Centre when walking across the bridge back to the Young Designers Market.
And those are the photo's from my phone. Hope you enjoyed.

Collections: Nail Polish

After high school, some five years ago, I became addicted to nail polish. It probably had something to do with being released from my private school prison and now being free to paint my nails all the colours of the rainbow without a single repercussion. Needless to say I built up quite the collection which I will now share with you.

The complete collection

My Rimmel collection

Half my Sportsgirl collection

The other half of my Sportsgirl collection




Peaches, corals, and pinks

My personal recommendation would Rimmel. It's affordable, lasts well and often only takes one coat.

I don't wear as much nail polish now as I used to, all the jewellery making just tears it right off, but occasionally I still whip out the colour box and paint myself happy.

Coming up next in the collection series... Earrings!

P.S. My first email newsletter is going live tomorrow, so if you're interested take a peek in the side bar and subscribe.
