My friend introduced me to Colenimo this afternoon, and I've fallen in love with almost every piece in their Autumn 2012 lookbook. I'm saving up to move out soon, so these pretty pictures will have to satisfy my cravings. Arghhh complete independence or a pretty wardrobe? So many first world problems I can't even begin to start...

Stress stress stress. Here's some more snaps from Phuket, I took a ridiculous amount of photos of the same thing because I wanted to finish the roll haha. I so badly would like to return, everything just seems so simple there.

Melbourne sunsets

C088493-R1-31-6AC088493-R1-30-7A Sunset at St Kilda, Melbourne

I remember this day being incredibly freezing, windy and we also got a tram fine that morning so we weren't exactly in the best mood. But there was the most gorgeous sunset, and all of that anger and fatigue fizzled away.

"Consider again that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar", every "supreme leader", every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there - on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light.

Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand. It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known."
- Carl Sagan, excerpted from a commentary address delivered May 11th 1996

Birthday cider

DSC_0023 Today was my best friend, Viv's, birthday. We celebrated by going to dim sum in the morning and enjoying some cheese, crackers and cider on her porch in the afternoon. Happy Birthday Viv! You are amazing and I love you.

C088493-R1-01-36AC088493-R1-02-35AC088493-R1-03-34A Film from Phuket! Like I've previously mentioned, there is extreme vignetting because I used my digital lens on my film camera. However in these snaps I kinda like it. Looking over this roll, it really made me want to go back to the leisurely days of reading and contemplating existence. University and life is just far too complicated and stressful right now. coughfirstworldproblemscough. One month til exams! Eeeeep!

I bailed on Hip Hop Karoake at the Bird and Jugular at the Fly By Night Club this evening to go to Viv's house, watch AusNTM and make Viv cook me eggplant & mushroom tempura. The contemplative midnight bus ride home was very refreshing too. Best decision ever.

I spent an entire weeks paycheck in a day yesterday, terrible I know but there are just so many pretty things out at the moment! Mustard and lime are definitely my two favourite colours of the summer season, I can't wait to wear long summer skirts, dresses, wedges, shirts and sandals again. I bought all of this plus a Southbound ticket in where Beirut, one of my all time favourite bands, are performing. Yay for summer!

Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle.
-Steve Jobs

Fruit Markets

C008523-R1-01-2C008523-R1-02-3 Here's some snaps from the fruit markets in Phuket. After developing a few roles of my Nikon f60 (35mm) I've fallen in love with how it saturates the colours oh-so-much better than anything a digital camera could do. On the downside, I really need to buy a proper lens for this camera (i'm still using my 18-55mm lens intended for my Nikon D90) as this lens has a really ugly vignetting on 70% of the snaps. Besides that, I'm starting to love film much more than digital, however I find it works better for travel photography and whatnot as I prefer working with digital for social events. In other news, I've laid of posting for a tad as University has been ridiculous over the past week back and my life is becoming as dramatic as an episode of Gossip Girl. Rest assured, all is well.

Venn Café

DSC_0206 DSC_0209 DSC_0207 DSC_0219 DSC_0208 DSC_0220 DSC_0229 DSC_0225 DSC_0234 Finally I remembered to take my camera with me for my very many Venn dates that I have weekly with both Viv and Sarah. Venn is a café, art gallery and store all in one, located on Queen Street in the city. It has a really clean and nice design and scrumptious food that I love. The coffee is one of the best I've tasted aswell! I usually order the quiche with a side of salad and Viv usually gets the bagel. Also, the people that work there are really lovely too and always up for a chat. One of the girls (picture in the blue overalls) always wears the most adorable outfits and always has the most interesting necklaces.

Also picked up my last roll of film from Melbourne, and it contains quite a few snaps from Phuket also so I'll be uploading them in the next couple of weeks.
