Maybe it's the being in winter up here in seattle, but anyway, I know I wasn't really happy being brunette, I remember how awesome it felt when I went back to being blonde again,
Anyways just thought I'd share :)

So I left all my friends on Monday night for a month. Heartbroken is not the word, so sad, i have so many awesome peope around me I feel very blessed.. then I've spent something ridiculous like 20 hours in planes.. had 5 hour stopovers along the way.. and bang! Here I am, finally, in Seattle..
Seattle is seriously pretty. Seattle's like the pretty girl in class who is seriously awesome but doesn't really talk much and so people don't really know much about her. At the moment it's well and truly winter, so the pines are dotted amongst deciduous trees which have all lost their leaves, it looks.. well it looks exactly how you imagine america in winter, like something from a movie or postcard. My dad's house is on a lake here, so every monring I get to wake up to this
that's been pretty neat.. a few weeks back there was a little family of otters sliding around on their tummies on the dock, it was the cutest picture, i'll ask if i can post it for u all :)
Also, I took a photo of peppermint bark for Sam from thatswhatsam-said.blogpot.com to have a look at, i hope i described it well!
I have been eating so much here it's ridiculous, they have such different food, yesterday i had a maple syrup donut.. so amazing it didnt even get enough time in the world for me to take a photo, there's pop tarts for $2.49, which jst seems ridiculous cos in Australia we pay like 8 dollars or more, might even be 10 i cant recall.. oh and AUSSIE WINE - is actually cheaper here, and yellow tail has wayy bigger range, work that out. Going to Costco tomorrow, it could get crazy, im jst excitd about costco pizza slices, they were so yum last time!
Shopping here is crazy too, i was flipping thru a big 5 catalogue ( like our Jim Kidd for sports store) and nike's are normally $60. This trip is going to pay for itself in no time.
Another discovery of deliciousness, Passionfruit Malibu. OH . My. GOSH. Sam i hope u read this, ALL of my duty free allowance is going on this stuff, it is so delicious! screw Alize! yep yep yep, that's just how awesome it is =D
The day before I left I did a shoot for the amazing, amazingly talented Olivia from Olive farm.. totally worth looking her up on etsy, her stuff is sooo pretty
Anyway, here's one of the photos from the shoot
also needing a huge mention is Mashita from Meisha make up artistry, she was sooo gorgeous and did such an AmaZing job! her page is http://www.facebook.com/#!/meisha.makeupartistry
this was the night i left so the picture quality was shot to high hell, oops! anyway, you'll see more soon :)
so im ridiculously tired! and it's something like 2 maybe 3 am here .. damn !
hope you're all eating lots of yummy foods, doing lots of amazing things and feeling fantastic, wherever u are in the world !

Hey beautiful readers, missed you !
Some of you probably noticed my blog went down for a week last week, I'll tell you the reason why - I WAS IN PHUKET! It was a present for my birthday, what an incredible trip, such amazing weather, amazing people, amazing beaches, amazing experiences. anyway, this will be a quick post, off to uni, but I just thought i was well overdue for outfit posting.
Hope your having a fantastic amazing time, wherever you are in the world ! <3 always Lily

Anyway so uni has gone back for the semester - yay! but aw :( hahaha!
Semester two is my favourite semester, the days are getting longer, there's a lot more sun to be enjoyed, and a lot more hanging out at the tav, and it's the semester quite often that a bunch of us will ditch class and head to the beach :) bliss!
So good to be back, I can't tell you.. this is the last semester for a lot of my friends, so there's a real sense of " make these days count" around.. which is making it lots more fun and making us all spend more time with each other.. cue crazy times at the tavern which roll out to us all heading out ..(in the middle of the week too!) and stumbling in late to the lecture the next day looking very seedy!
I've got loads of outfit posts to put up - I'll try to upload them tomorrow, I won't promise I'll get it done today! take care guys, talk again soon

OH MY GOSH!!!!
Went to Made on the Left today, a designer art and craft market which showcases creative talent across Perth. My goodness, if only I was so talented!! It was soo great, it's one thing to scroll through etsy stores online, it's another thing entirely to be able to see all this stuff in one place, and even get to talk to the amazingly gifted people who've created it ! So much beautiful stuff I had no idea where to start! Bought some delicious handmade soap - coconut slice scent so yummy I'll have to remind myself it's soap!
Also, another amazing thing happened - I was just walking about, taking in all the amazing sights, looking what I thought - very worst for wear -and one of the ridiculously talented designers, from the label Olive Farm - asked me if I'd like to model some of her beautiful headpieces & headbands for her!! You literally could have blown me over with a feather. For one - i adore headbands and headpieces, and these were the prettiest I'd ever laid my eyes on, and for 2: even though I've been doing some stuff for my photographer friend and his colleagues, i have never quite thought of myself as being anything close to a model!

Hope you're having a brilliant time, full of adventures, wherever you are in the world!

Still freezing here in perth, another zero degree celsius night last night.. Which means that there's not a lot of going out, but a lot of staying in with friends, huddled around the heater and eating copious amounts of delicious comfort food ! Perfect!
Anyway this photo was takn while a friend and i were adventuring through the city on the weekend. Poor Perth, I've been so busy I can't even think when the last time when i was ther, it's kind of turned into the kind of relationship you hav with the family pet when you move out, you don't see it as much, you miss it dearly, but when you do see it, it's as if nothing's changed. Ahh Perth, you loyal puppy, you always surprise me with something new to discover. Went to patricia piccinini's exhibition at the art gallery this trip- Wow. Where do i start. First off, that girl has some serioud talent, because my goodness, her creatures looked real! Pretty creepy looking, but when you saw them up close, they had a sort of innocence and gentleness to them, i'll post a pic of the igloo critter which i liked the best.. She'd also used vespa's and motorcycles as creatures, it was just insane !
All my love <3 Lily
