In the garden.

Inspired by a card I sent to my friend overseas, let's talk a walk in our garden :)

Spring sunshine is shimmering across the garden.

I love the purple fairy pompoms on this one.

The smell of jasmine fills the air and reminds me of our childhood home.

Gorgeous tiny blooms on the forest pansy tree.

Brilliant blues everywhere.

How are you enjoying the spring sunshine?

Blush and bluebird bargains

I've been super lucky of late, with two super Myer finds.

The first is this soft blush pink Piper shirt for a complete steal.

Yep, that tag says $5. Win.

So perdy!

And then these gorgeous fairytale bluebird pajamas appeared. Half price. Bingo!

So now I sleep like this, with Cinderella's bluebirds as my company :)

Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne.

I think I have a new favourite place. I truly am in love with the Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne. I have taken these photos on various days and nights throughout the year. Most of the inside shots are from the Melbourne International Flower and Garden show.

Like my Paint photoshop skills? :P

Healesville Sanctuary

Whatcha looking at? Huh, punk?

Last week I spent a day at Healesville Sanctuary. I hadn't been there in years and years. It really is a fantastic zoo. If you're ever around the Healesville area, it's worth checking out. I thought I'd share some pictures for overseas readers and locals, coz come on, our native Australian animals are pretty cute :)

The forever favourite kangaroo. It's a fantastic enclosure that you can walk through, and then a trampoline type thing to practice your own bouncing technique!

A pair of gang-gang cockatoos snuggling up to each other. So cute!

Pelicans. If you get a chance to see them at feeding time, it's a great thing to see.

The lands of Healesville Sanctuary are absolutely beautiful, surrounded by trees over hundreds of years old. This tree is over 150 years old.

Just before I was about to leave, I noticed these birds flitting about. One blue wren on the inside, one on the outside. It was gorgeous to watch, as the two tried to kiss between the bars.

A wonderful day :)

Call me.

While returning a book to the library today, I stumbled across this gorgeous dress. I ran straight to the change rooms to try it on. Did a few swishes in it (it is well known that swishing is a necessity in the process of dress trying on) and loved it. It had to be mine :) It's been a while since I purchased a new new dress! And of course, when I do, it's from Tree of Life. They have some super cute dresses in at the moment, so definitely worth checking out at the moment :)

An oh-so-classy shot of the dress, and a door handle.

I was - and obviously still am - so in love with the fabric. It looks a little greyer in the pictures than it is in real life, although I suppose it is really a grey-ish blue.

The dress also happens to match my new favourite nail polish - "Call Me" by Faces of Australia. Love me some classy pink with a bit of shimmer behind it all. Plus, picking at it stops me from biting my nails - a nasty habit that I thought I had lost has returned! Nooooooo!

Anyway, enough of my sales pitches. I hope you're all well and enjoying the beginnings of spring!
