how would you live? if you could not die...


 Mucking around with the sublimely delicious chow after sweet treats of milkshakes and laughter. L fell to the ground in giggles many a time.


This dress is lusciously mouth-watering. Its light and breezy lace is like wearing smiles. Both L and I are particularly enamoured by the spectacular butterfly sleeves and perfect detail to every inch. This is a dress to make you feel like a princess.

the magic far away tree...

Somewhere under all these emerald leaves lays a secret, a hidden jewel of childlike wonder and intrigue. A magical hollow where imagination reigns absolute, where dreams and hopes twine and meld to create wondrous lands.  Buried, long forgotten between suburbia and labyrinth like alleys. This nook was once visited and enjoyed every day, was once the home to countless adventures and games. The sun was watched and mourned at the end of each and every summer day from the giant, now unseen limbs that gently cradled restless children into twilight.


This evening L came back. She visited the colossal tree. She swung on the swing her dad made for her. She gazed up and watched the sun hide. She attempted to climb the great limbs. She crushed and crunched dead leaves under her feet. She remembered childhood escapades.

this is not a staring contest...

Another gossamer wrinkled day, this blistering and everlasting summer has been taking its toll on L. All she’s in the mood for is layers and boots and warm fluffy coats. I guess we should make the most of it while we can, as I foresee once the frost arrives again L will be lusting for seasons bygone.

Lunch today with Bon Bon and Chow, although the food was sub-par the company was scrumptious. Afterwards they meandered around town, bumping into old friends and of course taking many a photo.

Scheming is a constant theme right now. Stay tuned.

dream smasher...

Delicious pancake dreams were violently smashed and destroyed this morning, much to the dismay of this little kitty, who was quite looking forward to licking non-existent leftovers off L’s face. Instead L and Miss Kim found themselves confused and lost, wondering about the city aimlessly and unsure of where to go from there. They eventually chose a charming little cafe half hidden down a twisted alleyway for their brunch escapade.

The remainder of the afternoon was spent wondering in and out of shops where more dreams and wishes were made and then, just a quickly shattered. T’was certainly a day for dream destroying.

Not too happy with today’s outfit, there’s not really anything wrong with it... I just feel its very "beige" for L. But due to a much needed sleep in and some last minute work before her adventures she was left with very little real time to create something that would be wondrous to my keen kitty eyes.  Perhaps we’re both just a tad uninspired today. Although I do love that blue on her.

gonna lock it in my pocket, taking this one to the grave...


Too tired for words today, there will most probably be a more exciting post tomorrow as the morning will see L catch up with the delightful Miss Kim from BlondeSuburbia for a super healthy breakfast of pancakes and ice-cream.

all your dreams are waking up...

L and Chow were transported to a different world this morning, a world filled with all types of animas, some long extinct, some native to beautiful Australia. They were surrounded by rocks and halls of butterflies, rooms packed full of old relics and reptiles.

As they wandered the museum they couldn’t help but touch everything that was forbidden and gasp at unthought-of wonders. They began their journey in an eerie antechamber filled with taxidermy. Stuffed animals from around the globe, they saw tigers and bison and anteaters and feral cats, they marvelled at zebras and monkeys and tree squirrels, at all kinds of birds and even they spied a sloth.

After the animals they found themselves surrounded by butterflies, butterflies all the colours of the rainbow and more, some as big as their head, some with eyes on their wings. The stared hypnotised by the vibrant hues for much longer than intended. Captivated. Trapped.
