SOUTHWARD BOUND!


Ocean Beach, West Coast

As some of you may know, my ol' stompin' ground was the beautiful pristine landscape of Tasmania. I am jumping on a plane tomorrow to spend some time with family and friends and breathe in the fresh air, beach walk, bush walk and perhaps go for a 'refreshing' dip in the sea! We'll see!!!
Anyway I thought I would leave you all with some inspiration for you to either make your first journey there or to venture back! Enjoy!!!

What a Weekend!!!

So one MASSIVE Market weekend down and another one to go.
This weekend just gone on Saturday I ventured to the Fantabulous BrisStyle Market @ St. Augustine's Church, Racecourse Road, Hamilton. I was next to the always beautiful Nicole from Hot Toffee (I am so disappointed with myself for not getting a shot of her fantastic display - so I borrowed one from her BLOG).

I didn't get much of a chance to have a good look around, as flying solo always presents this problem on market day, along with the temperamental gusts that we had on the day, our sandbags needed a little help holding everything down! I did have a the quick chance to have a look at Julia from {a creature strange} and Melanie from Kimonore Incarnate from whom I purchased a lovely handmade oragami card for my mother-in-law - she will love it!



I introduced some of my new purses and clutches...

...as well as some gorgeous wooden bracelets,
Taybian Design handmade Italian Dreaming photo card packs and the Leather Bookmark collection!



I love it when I meet gorgeous people and products at the markets!!!
On the Sunday I headed along to the Southbank Young Designers Market.
I was so fortunate to be next to the lovely Jo and Matt from Curly Jo Design. Not only is Jo's work AMAZING but these are two lovely lovely people.
You can check out Jo's gorgeous work at the Southbank Markets, Riverside Markets, or online through her Madeit Shop. Make sure to check out her BLOG also!

Babes in Business Lunch @ Giani's Portside

Last Friday I attended the annual Babes in Business Lunch @ Giani's, Portside Wharf.
It was their 10th anniversary! Congrats!!!
So on my journey to Portside Wharf, I caught the City Cat and wandered past these old chaps dusting off their feathers, I think posing, in front of all dining in Bretts Wharf Restaurant.
Moments like these certainly put a smile on your face (a giggle or two) and spring in your step. What a great way to start my day!

Back to the lunch...
I was a newbie to the BiB annual lunch, but I am sure if I was a seasoned regular I would still have been blown away with the organization (event despite a table mix up in the beginning for our table!) and the imagination!
Gift shop, goodie shop (OMG how indulgent), glamour shots (can't wait to see the pics, so hilarious!!!), hair and make-up touch-up shop, all in a fabulous location, Gianni Events @ Portside Wharf, Hamilton.

I shared a table with some fabulous women (and man). In this pic (above), Danielle Crismani and Ruth Marshall from Stanwell and John Wells, all of whom I met at a previous BiB function.
I also met some new fabulous women at my table. Georgia Thornley and Nicky Lonergan from SV Partners also the gorgeous Claire Lousie, who designs beautiful bridal and formal wear (contact her on: clairelousiebridal@ymail.com).
Thank all for a fabulous day!

Just as a note you MUST check out Danielle's beautiful blog Digella's Emporium!
