Gorgeous shoot I came across on fashionising.com here. I think it's the space I love the most, the gorgeous big windows! flooding the room with light and all the plants and vintage furniture. It make me miss Melbourne, there isn't really anything like this on the Gold Coast.

I came across these images while procrastinating on facebook and instantly loved their dreamy, whimsey feel. After clicking a few links I found they were from the current lookbook for New Zealand designer Mondegreen.
//I hope you all had a nice weekend.....A few links and things I loved from last week, normally I post this on a weekend as part of weekend link love type post, but I'll make up for it now...
- Have a peek inside the wardrobes of Melbourne creatives Kirra Jamison(who just won the Yen Magazine, Toni&Guy Young Australian Art Award ) and Beci Orpin
- 3 tips to improve your blog today via fat mum slim.
- Frankie Runway from LMFW. My favourite, so quirky and fun - look at those knitted cacti!
- The great blogging divide - the in crowd and the rest of us. Bit of a sensitive topic, but I feel Carly had some good points about where blogging has been heading lately and I do hope we can all remember why we started blogging and be true to ourselves.
- The Archibald Finalists announced.

I know, I know! It's already March and I'm only just getting around to blogging my January holiday photos! I had six whole weeks off, my longest break since uni days and when I got back I started a new job. So I think I have only just readjusted to my new life/work schedule.
I spent my break in four different states! Queensland, Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney visiting all my friends and family spread out over them all. You can see my Holiday Photos Part 1 : Christmas & New Year and I still have a part 3 photos to blog from my time in Sydney.
