For my brother’s birthday last November, he organised for us to go in a mini bus to a pretty winery in McLaren Vale, a wine region in south of Adelaide. This was prior to my moving to the Barossa (another wine region to the north)… I was going to say “so being surrounded by vineyards was still a novelty”, but to be honest even after some eight months here, I still marvel at the views!
Anyway, me being me, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to do an impromptu photoshoot in a new location for me (I had never been to McLaren Vale before). And what better crown to wear to a winery than one of vines! Fortunately, my sister-in-law was part of the birthday party, so I had a photographer on hand for a few quick snaps.
One of my best friends recently became an Australian citizen at a ceremony on January 26th. With permission, I took home one of the numerous leftover bunches of native flowers from the townhall. I initially intended to make this flower crown with silver eucalyptus leaves as well, but I found the leucadendrons to be rich and full enough on their own.
Happy Easter! I certainly enjoyed mine; it was a welcome break from hospital placement (we are now 14 weeks into the semester, with holidays over a month away) to catch up with friends and celebrate the death and resurrection of our blessed saviour. I spent the weekend with my old schoolmates, staying at my friend’s forest cabin in the Aussie bushland forest of Wirrabara (approx. 3hrs from Adelaide, near Laura)
Of course, I couldn’t resist taking advantage the beautiful location and company of my creative friends for a photoshoot. This was done in collaboration with E from Faith in Fools as my photographer (the recipient of a rose flowercrown as well as the host of our Kitschella party, if you recall).
Hello hello! If you’ve been following my Insta, you may recall a photo I shared of my street in the 2014.
Every spring, without fail, the little plum trees lining my avenue slowly erupt into a glorious bloom of pale pink blossoms. It is really a sight to behold, and its also fun to see their tiny petals gather along the roadside with each passing day as I walk to and from the bus stop. So last September (2016) I couldn’t resist but to make a cherry blossom flower crown.
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a fruitful 2016 and a festive end to the year! For me, 2016 had many challenges but also many wonderful joys and new memories 🙂 My New Year’s Eve was spent at my friend’s Bollywood-themed party: think copious amounts of curry, papadams, henna, saris and Bride and Prejudice #culturalappreciation (more…)
I recently turned 21, an important milestone in many cultures. And as such, I wanted to celebrate with all of my friends and family in a way that was quintessentially me: dancing to DJ and live band, food, fairylights and flowercrowns. (more…)
