health food section

I have recently rediscovered my addiction for VEGE chips. I feel that my love for them is justified as a healthy addiction as the location for these delicious delights in the supermarket is the health food section. I have a sense of respect for any food from the health food section as I believe some product researcher has labelled that product as healthy enough to justify its placement in said section. This therefore removes any guilt I may have from consuming said foods from the health food section.

I write this post as I enter the final chip count in my packet. It has been a wonderful guilt-free journey and I look forward to many in the future.

Williams Street Market

Sunday, in avoidance of doing any uni work what so ever, I ventured out into the big wide expansive world and caught up with some lovelies for lunch and then discovered the William Street Market in Northbridge. Now it may not be the Notting Hill Markets, but it was still lovely to see Perth getting a bit dolled up and becoming a bit more cultured. Here is how my day went down.

First I had an iced chocolate at a lovely cafe called Cantina 663 (go there, it is amazing). I also ate what was named a “corned beef sandwich”. I would refer to it as a deluxe, gourmet, plate of deliciousness.

 After that, I caught the train for the first time in a hundred years into the city with Alyssa from SewFemme and Ruth from Join me, Ruthie. We then ventured into Northbridge and found the William St Markets.

(P.S at this point, I should let you know that a bobby pin just fell out of my hair and onto my neck – i practically died of fright! Just needed to share. Sorry. Continuing).

Perth brought out its BEST weather for the day. This is looking across the intersection so it looks quite empty – was super busy though!!!

Alyssa got excited when she found this scarf at Vintage Dori. She promptly bought it.

It got hot so we bought snow cones. I had a green one.

Then we found the most amazing little shop. Hiding away. Upstairs. With only a little sign to show you the way (and a whole lot of clothes hanging out the window) Oh Henry! Vintage.

The shop was AMAZING. Cutest little place ever. And best kept secret (secrets will be exposed in May)

We all found dresses that we adored! Doesn’t Alyssa look like a 50s housewife! She even had the pearls on and hair styled appropriately.

And on the way home, back to the train, Ruth found this precious suitcase at We Heart Vintage Perth. She is not quite sure what it is going to be used for yet.

All in all it was a lovely outing. I was super proud of my restraint I showed myself. I ended up leaving with a compact and doiley from the Retro Vinnies and we all left with our beautiful dresses from Oh Henry! Vintage.

Definitely worth checking out the markets next time they are in town. Apparently the William Street Market happens once every few months.

Anyway, enough procrastinating for me. I am off to find some cake with my little brother.

Mon Amour Monday | On a Sunday

This past week has been stupidly busy. I don’t like stupidly busy days. I prefer to feel as though my body isn’t being pulled in different directions by all the things I need to do. So, sleep kinda took priority (sleep is generally my #1 priority regardless) and Mon Amour Monday had to wait a week. This weeks Mon Amour has taken on a sort of “up-cycle” theme. So here it is.

Coming in at number one// This lighting installation at a Taco place at the boat harbour near my house. It looks a hundred times better in real life and talk about up-cycling! I also ate a giant piece of chocolate cake (appropriately named the “Big Fat Chocolate Cake”) and my friend Jon got the berry cheesecake.

Number Two// Bringing life back to old thrifted earrings. For the tutorial click here. (Please excuse the elephant skin appearance of my poorly moisturised hands – I am lazy).

Number Three// Feeling absolutely inspired and creative in my new little desk space after I gave it a mini makeover last weekend. It kind of was looking a bit like a storage facility that I was attempting to work in (Blake had previously used it as a dumping ground for parts for his Simulator and had sorta not moved anything even though I had to study at the desk). It now looks beautiful, clean and most importantly Simulator parts free. I LOVE it!

Number Four// Girls nights in and chocolate brownies and mexican food and wine and everything amazing. Spice girls also somehow made it there and a lot of planning happened for an upcoming July girls trip. Yay! (And yes, lollies in martini glasses are essential!)

Number Five// This photo. I just want to smush her! 

And….

This post about all the pretty flowers featuring in current interiors. So jealous of the northern hemisphere as they head into Spring.

These GOURMET chocolate chip cookies. They are simply made better through the use of the word ‘Artisian’. I think I will have to make them sometime this week – will keep you posted.

Super cute Easter DIY’s. I love Easter holidays. They always have perfect weather and I love getting my craft on over the extended public holidays. And of course, the reason behind Easter. It is just a beautiful time of year.

My super amazing green glitter St Patrick’s Day Shoes! Check out the tutorial over here and see the rest of my costume.

And finally this post over at Cafe Cartolina. Don’t you just love the little yellow teapots?
