I hope you all have a fantastic Friday. Friday’s for me is not as exciting anymore. It’s the last day of uni for the week. Which means work Saturday, Sunday and Monday. That’s the life of a fashion student yo.

Also happy first day of May!


This is a cool series of doco’s called The Day Before. I’ve actually, now watched them all!



I feel like I’ve posted this here before but I’m not sure. It’s just a quick watercolor painting I did.



Me. Pardon all the selfies in this Foto Friday. You’ll notice I’ve bought a new red lipstick and I totally love it.



I went to the Night Market and had one of these yummy spirally potatoes. And of course some Sangria.



Some gouache painting of the colour wheel.


Me in my red lipstick. I’ve noticed it makes my hair look more blonde than usual!



Lots of buttons at Jimmy Buttons.



Lots of trims too. I had the urge to start tidying up for them while I was there, but I resisted. The lady actually lost her keys while I was there. I have no hope that she was able to find them:/



My friend Ashy’s hat. So super cool.


I found this at work. I think the other girl did it, maybe something to do with the shirts we sell having thread treads. I clothes are made in china so maybe I’m thinking that’s why its translated. No idea.


My outfit of the day for uni yesterday. The red lipstick makes things more exciting.


This is my latest book club read, and I just realised I haven’t updated you on book club. I like this picture of Patti.

IMG_9131My latte. I really, really love coffee and hanging out in cafes.

Salt and Vinegar Kale Chips

S A L T  A N D  V I N E G A R  K A L E  C H I P S

The recipe is from the book; “The eat, drink, and be gorgeous project.”

Kale is the new potato! These light and crunchy “chips” are practically guilt-free.


2 bunches kale, rinsed with stems removed

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

3tbsp olive oil

1tsp salt (or less, as desired)

Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Cut the kale into 2-to-3-in/5-to 7.5cm pieces. In a large bowl, combine the vinegar, olive oil, and salt. And the kale and toss by hand until all the leaves are covered. Evenly distribute the kale among the prepared baking sheets and bake for 20 minutes, or until the leaves are crispy. If the chips are not sizzling or crispy yet, turn up the heat to 200 degrees Celsius and bake for a few minutes more. Baking time varies depending on the size of your chips and desired crispness; note that the outer edges cook quicker than the pieces from near the stem. The chips are best if enjoyed immediately, but can keep overnight in an airtight container in the fridge.

IMG_8431Washed Kale.

IMG_8433Kale on the tray ready to go into the oven.

IMG_8439And, voilla. Salt and vinegar Kale chips.

I only made half the recipe, so one bunch. I ate half of that for lunch with some chicken. They turned out super delicious. I just need to make sure they’re crispier next time, the ones in the middle of the tray weren’t as crispy as they should be, but they were still good enough to eat. Yum. I think I’d prefer these over salt and vinegar potato chips from now on.

Today was my last day at my corporate job. I have three weeks off until I start my new course. I’m a bit scared but I’m a lot excited.


IMG_83431. I made some pancakes and this one looked like it had a skull on it. Way cool.

IMG_83442. I saw this in Myer of all places. I want one in my house. Thanks.

IMG_83383. First time having French Onion Soup at Paris Go in Carlton. A bit heavy, but very tasty and cheesy. And oniony.

IMG_83416. I would like both of these books. Please and Thank you.

F O T O  F R I D A Y

This week has been a decision making week. Full of stress and serious and not so serious thinking. I am definitely glad that it is Friday.



1.  I like this book. It’s been very helpful. I’ve also read “A New Earth” by the same author and loved that one too.

2. I have the best brother in the world. I hate washing my car, so he always washes it for me.


3. This is a delicious chicken and leek pie from Emporia Cafe in Myer.


4. My friend Emily and myself, just a quick bathroom selfie before watching Moonrise Kingdom.

5. I don’t really like this arrangement and think it’s weird the mannequins don’t have any pants. However, I do love the chair and think if I sketched this it could look quite cool.

6. I want this in my room. I can just imagine coming home and feeling so relaxed and cozy after jumping right onto it. I think the bed covers are from Karen Walker.

7. This is my book purchases this week. I walked into Readings Bookstore in Carlton looking for some answers and walked out with these.

8. My really good friend Badra and I did a cookbook swap. This is Badras Nigella and I gave him Rachel Khoo’s cookbook. I love how he’s got all the tabs on the recipes he’s made and wants to make.

9. I sent a random letter to a girl who’s zine I liked. Exciting enough for me she actually replied and sent me her latest zines. We’ve decided to be pen pals which is even more exciting.

10. My street. My street photo project hasn’t really gone so well. I can’t seem to get my camera to work. I think maybe the battery is just dead. And meanwhile in the last 2-3 weeks the trees already have leaves. It looks so pretty.

11. While I was supposed to be doing my assignment I began dreaming and thinking about things and decided to rename my book.

12. This is my new Deadly Ponies bag. We’ve become quite good friends already.

13. The girl sitting next to me at the tram stop had the coolest shoes. I want them.

14. This is from “The Power of Now”. “So next time somebody says, “Sorry to have kept you waiting,” you can reply, “That’s all right, I wasn’t waiting. I was just standing here enjoying myself – in joy in my self.””



Hope you all have an amazing weekend.
