Tagged

G'day all.
I hope everyone had/ is having a brilliant Christmas :)

I was tagged by electric feel (THANK YOU!!) to list 7 random things about myself....
Ok here I go.

1) When I doodle the only things I draw are cubes, because that's the only thing I can draw.

2) I was an extra in The Matrix when it was filmed here in Sydney. And yes, Keanu is hot.

3) I was a sleep walker when I was a wee child. Think The Ring and The Grudge... That's what I looked like when I roamed the house.

4) I am obssessed with Granda blouses.

5) I am obssessed with Granda dresses.

6) I rarely sweat.

7) I wanted to be like my big sister when I was young.


So now I have to tag 5 people.
Rich Hippie
Happy Because
Song of Style
My Charlie Girl
The Fashion Addict

What I miss....


Our conversations


Our play fights


The blank, vacant and brooding stares


The ink that adorns your beautiful body


The Hugs


When I am emo and cry... and you hug and comfort me


....When I comfort you....


The kisses


I miss you this much


You know how they say distance makes the heart grow fonder... well, thats what I have been experiencing for the past week and maybe for the next three weeks. I am not the romantic lovely dovey type but the distance is bringing me to the dark side ;)
Baby if your reading this.... you would be so proud...haha

Now on to the photography......

Black and white photographs are my favourite, it captures a certain emotion that color photography never will... I love how these particular photographs by Hedi Slimane conjures emotions about my beloved. I think that's what really beautiful photographs do, it touches your heart, your mind and your soul... I know that Hedi's context for these photographs means something else than what I'm projecting on it... However when I look at these particular images it stirs up fundamental emotions.... Love...


******************
Different tangent...
When you look through Hedi's portfolio, I find it amazing how his craft has evolved... from his early shots to the present... seriously, beautiful work.

Safe trip. Love you lots


Last Day of Magic
(by The Kills)
We’re two parties, two parties ending
What if you move? What if you hide?
There’s only so much you can miss
Before we both collide

My little tornado
My little hurricano

Last day of magic, where are you?
My little tornado, my little hurricano

We’re two parties, two parties ending
I’ll be the man with the broom
If you’ll be the guts of the room
And there’s only so much you can hide
Before I corner you

Last day of magic, where are you?
My little tornado, my little hurricano

Last day of magic, coming through
The eye of the storm, and I hold on to
my little tornado, my little hurricano

I’ll be the man with the broom
If you’ll be the guts of the room
And there’s only so much you can hide
Before I corner you

Last day of magic, put a hole right through
the eye of the storm in a single room
my little tornado, my little hurricano

Calvary come, calvary go
Calvary leave me alone
my little serinado, my little cococaino

Last day of magic, where are you?
My little tornado, my little hurricano

I have cob webs on my shoulders

I don't know about you but I reckon this girl's top rocks! I have seen a few DIY fashion takes on the shredded 'Raquel Allegra' look, but by far this girl wins hands down. Do you think she did it herself or bought it at some ritzy boutique?

Photobucket

Meanwhile, I picked up Attitude magazine and they featured this editorial below "Felix hearts Hannah"... I really adore both their outfits. boho chic no?
So last night I dusted off the old sewing machine and got back to sewing. I am inspired by model 'Felix's' cotton jersey vest... however, I'm thinking of giving it a military twist, not sure yet though... I'm half way finished and will post pictures soon.

I was once a ballerina...

A seven year old tomboy in a tutu.
I absolutely love this photograph it’s so beautiful, whimsical, nostalgic and dreamy.
It reminds me of watching the senior girls dancing away in their pointes, pink leotards and beautiful tutus. They were graceful and mesmerising beings. I was the not so graceful tot in awe. This photograph is dedicated to that senior class; they will forever be those stunning ballerinas at the 3pm class.

Her dress is stunning in the last photograph!
