Found this image and it resonated. This life is a bit busy right now and my head is a buzz, buzz, buzz with general frippery, redecorating rooms, planting veges, getting bridesmaid dresses, clothes swapping, growing a baby, planning an awesome festive season and work, work, work. Seriously - that lady there, she is me! Although,… Continue reading My mind at the moment!
So I have made it through week 2 wearing the same 6 items during my Six Items or Less Challenge with only a few (teeny tiny!) confessions to make, but some rather interesting revelations about our perceptions of image and the psychology of choice. I must say it has proven quite a lot harder than… Continue reading Week two: Inga’s 6 Items or less challenge – Is less actually more?
Undertaking the six-items-or-less challenge has led to a rather disturbing wardrobe discovery. Digging into the depths of my closet trying to figure out what I could wear for a whole month, I began to notice something... I don't know how I've never noticed this before... first I noticed a couple of jackets that were pretty similar,… Continue reading Wardrobe confessions
As Inga mentioned in a previous blog, we have both decided to undertake the six items or less challenge - which means wearing nothing but the same 6 items for one month, not including underwear,shoes or jackets.

While scrolling some environmental pages on the net I came across this amazing new art form - green graffiti. Linda from Environmental Graffiti explains it beautifully: "Imagine an art form that uses living, respiring material; an art form that creates mini eco-systems in often complex and beautiful patterns. It changes the face of urban landscapes… Continue reading Green Graffiti – masterpieces in moss and grass
I may not think about it all the time, but somewhere, in the back of my mind, I wish I could do a back flip. And now that this guy is imagining a Backflip shoe maybe, just maybe, my time will come. Ha ha. Awesomeness. We've decided that they look soooooo awesome that any working… Continue reading Anyone got a pair of these to shwop?

I was listening the other day to a certain lobby group on the radio talking about the emissions trading scheme and the costs to the economy. Now, I am not in anyones best world, skilled with numbers so stick with me if I am completely naive. But I do continually wonder what is the point… Continue reading Economy vs. earth – which one you going to choose?
