I'm your ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb.

I love the soft focus and 70s feel of this editorial. They remind me of looking at my mum's old photographs when she was in her early 20s and Brigitte Bardot was huge. A fantastic era, I love the fashion. It also reminds me of the Runaways (hence the title).

Sydney post will be coming up shortly!

Instagram #7.

It's been a while since I last did an instagram post, so here we go. Accessories (and wow, Just noticed I did this pic at 12pm on the dot!). 

New Neon Blazer from Dotti! Absolutely loving it. 

A good book and a cup of tea. Waiting for a friend at Dukes.

Flaming Orzo Haloumi! 

New bright nail polish. 

New kicks! No more fair of spraining my ankle because my feet slop around inside my shoes! Harrah!

Childhood summer.

Summers sunbathing on rocks. 
Pale skin becoming golden. 
Cool pools, full of soft moss.
Jumping off sun baked rocks into the unknown. 
Exploring pebbles for insects.
Eating chips with wet fingers.
Drying out then getting back in again. 
Staying until the sun sinks low in the sky. 
No worries, just play. 
Coming home to a BBQ. 
Running through the sprinkler.
This was my childhood summer.

Summer house.

Source: Living Space

This is the Summer House of Photographer Paul Massey. I love that everything is whitewashed and the wood grain is shown through. I also love how the fabrics are natural and organic looking. Wood and white = great combination! I'd also add a bit of mint/seafoam green in there. 

It looks like a very calming and relaxing place to be on your summer vacation. 

One of my goals in life is to purchase a cottage and completely do it up to have my very own oasis. I can't wait to have my own house and I can quit flatting and make a life with someone doing something I love.

In the darkness I play.

I dwell in a lonely house I know 
That vanished many a summer ago, 
And left no trace but the cellar walls, 
And a cellar in which the daylight falls, 
And the purple-stemmed wild raspberries grow. 

O'er ruined fences the grape-vines shield 
The woods come back to the mowing field; 
The orchard tree has grown one copse 
Of new wood and old where the woodpecker chops; 
The footpath down to the well is healed. 

I dwell with a strangely aching heart 
In that vanished abode there far apart 
On that disused and forgotten road 
That has no dust-bath now for the toad. 
Night comes; the black bats tumble and dart; 

The whippoorwill is coming to shout 
And hush and cluck and flutter about: 
I hear him begin far enough away 
Full many a time to say his say 
Before he arrives to say it out. 

It is under the small, dim, summer star. 
I know not who these mute folk are 
Who share the unlit place with me-- 
Those stones out under the low-limbed tree 
Doubtless bear names that the mosses mar. 

They are tireless folk, but slow and sad, 
Though two, close-keeping, are lass and lad,-- 
With none among them that ever sings, 
And yet, in view of how many things, 
As sweet companions as might be had.

Photographer Love: The Sartorialist.

There's something so fantastic about The Sartorialist, Scott Schuman. He's probably the one street-style photographer who influenced the genre, apart from, of course, Bill Cunningham (by the way, watch the Bill Cunningham documentary! It's incredible!).

I could go through his blog all day. It's a feast for the eyes!

Photodiary #1

This cool looking dude on Cuba Street busking. Love his style. 

Went out for dinner at the newly refurbished Hummingbird Restaurant - Duck on curried lentils and lava mud cake (couldn't finish it!). Incredible. 

Our trip to Martinborough. Gorgeously dramatic skies and great food. 

The Wellington Zoo! Got to feed this Giraffe here, and the marmosets I could have watched all day.
