I've been wandering blogland and getting to know a bunch of other people that are out there doing lovely, interesting and exciting things.
It does mean I've been a bit relaxed about blogging myself, but that's OK coz I'm pretty busy at my workbench at the moment too. I've got two sets of the new collection to put together - one for Sydney and one for the new stockist I've just got in Brisbane. Hurrah!
But more about that in a moment. I've just got to mention a handful of these new blogs I've been exploring in case anyone is interested!
www.magnifeco.com does fantastic reviews of fabulous eco products. I started to browse and was hooked immediately. Just so beautiful!
I Found You I Melbourne is a really cute little joint project from a couple of girls in Melbourne talking of living there, loving there, making friends and occasionally getting carried away at the pub.
I've also started following Ten Dollar Meals In Melbourne because I'm a big fan of a cheap and cheerful restaurant :)
Style Melbourne is a great spot to keep an eye on what's going on in our stylish capital. Plus the girls there are divinely lovely human beings.
And I've really started to enjoy Sassi Sam - her writing just tickles me! Sam talks about all sorts of girly pop culture stuff.
Now, about that new stockist. Thread n Bone is a hot new boutique in Brisbane's most fashionable cool-kids destination - The Valley. (Fortitude Valley if you are ever looking for it on a map, but noone under sixty calls it that.) The brains behind this new venture is one of my absolute favourite couture artistes in Australia - Cyan Reign. Some of you avid Vogue readers would have caught a glimpse of Cyan's designs in last December's issue. I was thrilled when she called me up with an invitation to place my new collection in this boutique. I've had a few enquiries from people in Brisbane wanting to try on something from the new collection, and this is such a perfect destination for my work. The calibre of Cyan's design work is second to none, so I couldn't be happier with the association. The grand opening party is coming up next month, which means - yaaaay - a trip to Brisbane is on the cards. I haven't seen my brother and sisters who live up there since Christmas so I'm really thrilled to be able to head on up there. And - yes - I am a girl who loves a party. Look out Brisbane, here I come! But on that note, I have an enormous amount of work waiting for me in the workroom, so I must depart the laptop for a while. Au revoir!
