Hey, I’m back. I wasn’t planning on being back so quickly but I just couldn’t stay away.
I just took these photos. The first one is some illustrations I’ve been doing with watercolor and the DVD’s I’ve been obsessed with. “The Day Before – Loic Prigent”. They’re so good. It’s basically the 36 hours before a fashion show for particular designers. I think I’ve almost watched them all.
The second photo is some beautiful fabrics I bought at “The Fabric Store”.
And the third is the new Gorman a/w 13 look book. I like Gorman’s prints, they also have really comfortable shoes. My faves from the lookbook are the; Ellie malin + gorman collage landscape pant and the unique new york dress.
Hope you’ve all had a great week and hope you have an amazing weekend. Much love. Juliet x
Who doesn’t love selfies? I sure do :p

I have been busy with some home organisation lately.
I stumbled across a cool haberdashery store in the nicholas building. i loved these mushrooms.

These photos are from Tuesday when it was nice and sunny in Melbourne. The last few days have been miserable, cold and rainy and I can’t find my umbrella!!!
My dress is from CUE and my jacket from Forever New.
“all you need is love…love…love is all you need” on a random wall in Fitzroy.
Arcadia Cafe in Fitzroy. One more cafe to tick of for my Cafe Mission.
I was supposed to have a healthy day with no naughty food but when I was ordering my latte I couldn’t say no to this delicious carrot cake that I swear was begging me to eat it.
Lately I seem to be taking a lot of reflection photos. This is from the reflection on my iphone.
I went into ‘Title” a record store in Fitzroy. Picked up some cute cards. Also wondering who Jack Kerouac is and thinking I should probably already know who he is.

My camera will be attached to me on a more frequent basis so I can regularly post photo diaries. Taking photos is one of my most favourite hobbies.
I took these photos today on my walk to the library, which is were I’ve been going most days to practice my drawing and do some reading.
I ended up joining a gym on the way home. Here’s to hopefully losing some winter kilos. I promise I will start going to the gym regularly from tomorrow.

I like the front of this house.
Window of a cool new vintage store that’s opened on Toorak Road.
Window Display for Country Road by RMIT students.
The side of a restaurant in South Yarra.
Some of the books I was looking at in the library.
I think this was a selfie. I like when photos turn out all random like this.

Z I N E S ( P R O N O U N C E D L I K E M A G A – Z I N E )
It always surprises me when I start talking about Zines and the person I’m talking to has never heard of Zines. I’m surprised because to me they’re just so interesting. They can be really creative and also very simple. They are often very random and to me that’s what makes them so interesting. Everyone should know about them!
It’s basically a self produced publication. Anyone can make a Zine. Its typically in a small booklet form. It can be handwritten, typed, photocopied, pasted, printed or whatever other way you can think of. It can be about anything. You can put in drawings, photos or writing, whatever you want to share.
I found out about them when I first moved to Melbourne. I came across Sticky Institute at Flinders Street Station on my way home from work one day. And I’ve been wanting to submit my own Zine ever since. (Any one can make a Zine. Yes, even you can.) I’ve actually started making mine today, I think I’m calling it “Uninvited Frogs Here To Stay”. I’ll let you know more about it when I’m done (it’s currently in development/production stages).
There was a cool exhibition on street art in Melbourne some time last year and Zines were a part of it. You can see my photos from the exhibit right HERE.
