My Weekly Favourites

I started this week surrounded by beautiful things. 
I had to take photos for an advertisement for the magazine at a gift store and café called 'Impodimo'.  They had WAY too many nice things.  Unfortunately I spent almost all I would have made doing the actual shoot.  Whoops!  This was one such whoopsy daisy.
These four bracelets are all attached by a silver chain with a little heart locket on it.  I really like the silver leaf.  It's so fine.  Love love love!
I look like a doofus here, but I really like my new haircut.  It actually doesn't look spectacular here, it looked way better today after I'd doused it with water and let it dry naturally.  I had it cut on Tuesday, the first time in 11 months....and she cut it to suit the curl.  I never wear  my hair down because there is so much of it and it is really thick...but the hairdresser cut into it to take out some of the bulk, and even though she took an inch off the bottom it looks LONGER now.  Odd.  This curly hair thing is only a recent phenomenon for me...each time I've had a baby it's got progressively curlier and curlier.  What the?  Hormones are so weird.  Anyway, I like my new hair.  Particularly since it doesn't look like a gigantic boofy triangle any more.
I made up these brochures and had them printed through Vistaprint.  I swear, this company is insane!  (in a good way).  I did these on their website and ordered them last weekend and they arrived only DAYS later.  Wow!  These are brochures advertising my blog, but are more for advertising my copywriting and commercial photography services.  I thought (not that I'm not busy enough...like REALLY busy), that I'd try and get a bit of freelance work.  I like how they turned out.
I was really pleased with how they turned out.  Hopefully I remember to HAND them out.
My son Jesse made this dinosaur at 3 year old kinder!  Cute hey!
I kind of had a bit of a shopping spree at a children's store called Pumpkin Patch where I bought quite a few pieces for my daughter's winter wardrobe.  My husband is busier with his shearing during the spring/summer months so now is the time to buy while there's a little spare cash.  I go through all these pieces for you on my Vlog from this week which will appear Wednesday of this coming week.  (spoiler....I will also do a silly fashion parade for you too.....)
An odd Weekly Favourite, but this is Pip, my husband's kelpie, which is a working dog.  She normally resides at the farm, although for the last couple of years she has actually been living up north with my brother in-law.  She is the most beautiful dog.  I love dogs and I used to have a kelpie called 'Skeeto' who was the same colours, and who I sold for $2000.  I sort of had to get rid of him because he bit one of my boys.  He wasn't aggressive, he was just possessive of me.  Anyway, I then had a black and tan kelpie named Kate but she ran away at the start of last year......so since then I haven't had a dog living with me and I really miss it.  Anyway, my husband brought Pip home the other day because he wanted to take her to work at the shearing sheds, and she stayed a couple of nights.  I was so happy!
 
He is a photo of my dog Kate.....
....I know...she could take off with those ears.   I think the appropriate caption here is "What?  It wasn't me!  It must have been some other dog....."

  1. Aww Pip's a little cutie, we had to give my dog to my mum when we moved so know how it feels to miss having a 4 legged friend around. Your hair looks great! Nothing better than having a nice haircut after so long! Love the curls too my hair is very straight so I'm always jealous of people with natural curls...maybe if I had a few more kids though??! hehe xx

  3. Pip is such a cute dog! I actually LOVE your new hair cut. As someone with thick, unruly hair, I totally understand what you mean when you say it's just too much hair to wear down. Especially in the summer. But seriously this cut is sooooo flattering on you and I really think if you just play around with it a bit, you'll turn out loving it. (:

    1. I love Pip, she's so lovely. Thanks for the compliments on the hair. I'm really liking it! It's so easy. Even when I just wash it and towel dry it and then leave it...it looks fine! Best cut ever!

    1. I know...Kate was so naughty. This was when we were staying at my parent's house. I did warn them not to give her a pillow to sleep on...but she did have fun!

  5. I really like those bracelets. I agree, that silver leaf!! So beautiful! Love your brochures (great idea!) and Jesse's dinosaur! Pip is the cutest thing, I would have to include him in my favorites too!! Too bad for Kate running away. That's a sad tale!

    Much Love,
