Carnation & Chrysanthemum

A carnation and a chrysanthemum in an old vinegar bottle on my desk. Little things make me happy.

Stay Gold

January 17th, 2011 by Selise

It was nice and warm today. Well, rather warm really. Though I didn’t realise – all tucked up in my home office in a cocoon of air conditioning. We ventured out late this afternoon though and enjoyed that perfect, golden part of the afternoon. While I’m the first to wail when it gets above 25 degrees, it really is afternoons like these that you miss come the cold days.

The Tropics

January 10th, 2011 by Selise

Well here we are. The first day back at work. It was tough getting ready, let me tell you. Once I got dressed I forgot what to do next so I crawled back into bed. This was not a good idea. So I hopped back out and tied a scarf around my head. That solved that. The weather made it tough to get ready too. It’s pouring rain with a top of 25 degrees (77 degrees for those of you that are playing along at home) which is nice and

Jean Whizz!

There are times when I want nothing more than to wear a pair of torn jeans and an anti-war T-shirt. And then there are times when I want nothing more than to wear a pair of torn jeans and an anti-war T-shirt and take pictures of myself acting like a lunatic. This was one of those days.

Give Me an "S"!

December 20th, 2010 by Selise

Lordy, it’s sunnier than a cheerleader’s disposition out there. It’s OK though, I know the rain is coming back. How? Well I’m a massive nerd and currently addicted to a new weather app that I just downloaded. Yep. Say, did you know that it’s currently only 32% humidity out there? Why, that’s dry as a bone compared to the 80%+ stuff we’ve been dealing with lately. See? Nerd. I told you. OK let’s get down to it gang. Something super duper pooper scooper exciting is going down tomorrow and being

When 5:30am is OK

December 6th, 2010 by Selise

The conference finished up today. I learned some really interesting stuff.  I also learned that I don’t always like to be up at 5:30am. I like to be up at 5:30am if I am on my way to the airport aaaand that’s pretty much it. Wait, no, I also like to be up at 5:30am on Christmas. Which is shockingly close by the way. We’re talking less than 3 weeks. How did this happen??  Luckily I have all of my presents sorted so now it’s just a matter of kicking

The Man

November 29th, 2010 by Selise

I started my new job working from home today. I got dressed, walked to work, hung my hat on the door and sat at my (lovely, lovely) desk for a good 8 hours. This first week is mostly research and familiarising myself with everything but so far, I’m feeling pretty confident about the whole thing. Hooray! In the lead up to today I asked a lot of people for tips on working from home. A resounding one was to get dressed. I guess I have it easy in that I

Want. Want!

November 22nd, 2010 by Selise

I wore some clothes today and I really liked them. This dress is cut rather low on the sleeves so I balanced it with buttoning all the way up. I liked that. I could talk all evening about the subtle nuances of such dressing but what I’m really excited about is this. The store is up! The store is up! The store that I did the photo shoot for last month is now up. Check out Fearless & Harvey for all of your vintage needs. If you’re like me and

What the Day Brings

November 15th, 2010 by Selise

Plans. It’s so silly to make them. If I’ve learnt anything from my time on earth, it’s that things rarely go according to plan. On nights like tonight though, I couldn’t be happier about it. I had planned on working, going home, making dinner and watching the finale of Junior MasterChef (sure, I’ll admit it). But in a happy turn of events a good friend was in town and we ended up at our favourite bar before hitting up a sushi train. Yep. Brad really knew what they were singing

After Effects

November 8th, 2010 by Selise

While holidays are fantastic, the amount of catching up on everything you need to do when you get back, well, it’s not so fantastic. It’s OK though. I think I’m back in the swing of things. What I don’t feel like I’m back in the swing of though, is outfits. It’s happened before and it’s happening again it seems – wardrobe funk. I’m going to put it down to an intimidatingly large collection of washing to get through. Plus it’s actually starting to get kind of warm. Huh, Spring, who
