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.
I hope you all had a blessed Easter! I am currently living in Kapunda for my rural hospital placement, but came home to Adelaide for the Easter long weekend. During this time, I made an appropriately themed fascinator and headed to the river with next to the university to take a few photos! It was a bit spontaneous, so I just used what materials were available to me since all the shops were closed. (more…)
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…)
This flower crown was commissioned for the 21st birthday of my beloved friend, E, from Faith in Fools. It was a house gathering that wasn’t too big, but lots of fun! The colour themes for the party were gold and berry hues (dark pink, deep reds, plum etc.), which is what she wanted for her flowercrown.
