Offspring- Nina's Apartment 2

Aaaannndddd..... here is Nina's second apartment! I don't know which one I love most, this stunning rustic and uber quirky one, or her first elegant yet still whimsical apartment! Which do you prefer?
Images for this post were found here and here!

Offspring- Nina's Apartment 1

Why hello there, you must be thinking that I'm bored since I've started blogging again, and you would be right! It's not bound to last though, I'm moving back to Adelaide on Saturday!
During the past couple of weeks I have be re-watching the Australian drama Offspring. It's a show that works so well because of the way it's put together- the beautiful characters whom are acted perfectly, incredible Melbourne as the location, and fantastic styling. The protagonist, Nina, has great taste in clothing, men (!) and apartment interiors! Here is some interiors from her first stunning apartment. It's so elegant, yet still quirky and unique. I love it! It sold in Melbourne a little while ago and you can see pictures of it styled another way here! I should add I got most of my images from this site.

Dumb Ways to Die

Today, I thought I would show you the latest viral video. It's for Melbourne Metro and is telling you to be safe around trains (really!). I saw it a couple of weeks ago, and then heard it went viral (and am now super excited!) It's a great song, great animations/illustrations and pretty funny too! Enjoy!

Just a minute in... November

In an attempt to return to the blogosphere I have taken a leaf out of Amanda from Here Comes the Sun's book and do a 'Minute In' post! Her lovely one can be found here.

Watching... Game of Thrones and Gossip Girl. However, I just finished the second season of Game of Thrones (soooo good but I want more!) so I need to add another to the list, maybe the latest season of Mad Men... however, any recommendations?

Reading... Life of Pi, I only just started though. Hopefully this list will be bigger come the end of the extensive uni Summer break as hopefully I will read most of my growing list!

Listening to...  on top of the usual, new music from Alpine, Ball Park Music, the Rubens, Tame Impala, Two Door Cinema Club and also the likes of the Killers and Vampire Weekend to prep myself for Big Day Out next year.

Wandering... who will get the number 1 spot in Triple J's Hottest 100, I cannot think of any obvious choices like Somebody I Used to Know last year. Any suggestions? And also where I will live and how my career will go after I finished my uni degree, it's another year away, but I'm still stressing out (stay in Adelaide, or go to Melbourne?!)

Cleaning... (oh fun, a cleaning section), my room. Or at least considering it (oops hahaha). I'm trying to fit everything I have in Adelaide with me into my room, and am currently failing (my cupboards are seriously about to explode!). Is it worth sorting out nineteen years of hoarding now, or wait til next year when I get a place of my own?

Glad to be... finished my second year of uni (woo!) and getting ready for Christmas (I may have splurged in the Christmas sections of David Jones and Myer last week hehe).

Well, that has to be probably the most boring Minute In... you've read! Feel free to join in and comment a link!

ASOS Australian Collection














I am ridiculously in love with ASOS's new Australian collection! 
Here are my favourite pieces, but as you can tell that's nearly all of them! 
A highlight for me is definitely the white dress with a babushka print! I am dying to get my mits on something with a similar print!
Check out the whole collection on the ASOS website!

Lana Del Rey for VOGUE Australia

Lana Del Rey for Vogue Australia
Photographer: Nicole Bentley
Fashion Editor: Christine Centenera
Hair: Anna Cofone
Make-up: Pamela Cochrane
Manicure: Mandi Levanah

Sorry, for the lack of posting for a while, time just went by.

How stunning is this Lana Del Rey shoot for Vogue? Simply beautiful- I love the clothes, makeup, hair, room, props, everything! It just screams to me everything I love. I must say, I wasn't always a fan of Lana Del Rey, I wasn't taken by her music, but I was inspired to draw this cover of Vogue, and thought it was only fitting to listen to this songstress at the same time, and was pleasantly surprised by the variety of songs on her album until a faulty fire alarm caused me to evacuate the building at midnight.

None of the Lana Del Rey imagery would be new to Aussies, but hopefully any international folk will have never seen it before.

Flattery's Bedroom

Breanne from Flattery just did a lovely post about her recent room decorating- and I love it. It's quirky and sweet. I also love it because it's her actual room and therefore has stuff in it- the worst thing about looking at interior design magazines and site is that you can never actually achieve the look because you have too much stuff (or maybe that's just me) or because you have sentimental things that must be on display however, they do not go with the theme of the room.
Therefore, I find this kind of mismatched, quirky, vintage decoration perfect, because you can feature all of your collectables and it still looks good.
I dream of the day where I can completely decorate a room myself, and paint. I've always had to put up with the baby blue walls my parents chose before I was born, and frankly, I'm more of a pink and purple person. And well, at college, it's whatever's cheapest, at least I have blue not faded orange curtains this year!
You can check out the post here!
Hope you had a lovely day, mine was great before I put a tissue in the wash!
