Framed Fridays

I like to use the framing app on my iPhone to create little framed pictures. I often take more than one picture but of the same kind of thing or at the same event and I like to collate them. You may have noticed that if you follow me on instragram or that I ever like to do it for this blog. Either way, I’ve been a bit slack with posts lately and I have to admit it’s because I’ve been busy living. Busy working, busy with uni and busy with an almost too active social life. Here are some framed shots you might enjoy.

Apart from our hair colour which we kind of swapped and the obvious stunner factor – we’re basically the same people. I love my sister a lot!

Brother hangs, reading on a bed on a balcony and fun in the grass. Thank you McEwans.

SHOES! I love taking photos of my shoes!

Stefan’s parents came to town so we had a bit of a mid-week party. It was great.

I always find the prettiest things to take photos of!

I love this place, it’s people and the coffee.

Don’t mind a Saturday catch up with these long time lovelies.

Saturday Morning Saint Session.

Dance like Steff’s not taking pictures for her blog.

If it’s a public holiday and you HAVE to study.. you may as well study with friends nearby.

I don’t mind a good and colourful Swalisswasen evening.

I just really love coffee.

We went out for dinner and then off to the theatre to celebrate Brett’s 25th. These people are some of the best and I’m so lucky I get to spend time with them.

Just my type.

Lately I’ve been using pintrest. It’s quite wonderful. Being a words person .. it’s not surprising that I love quotes and images and pretty wording and that I have a specific board for typography.

Hipstamatically accurate.

Hipstamatic. Did everyone just forget about this little app with the invasion of instagram? I did. But lately I’ve been taking a few little shots. These are for your enjoyment you instagram snobs. Don’t ignore the other photo apps.

Grace and Mitch. Lovers of laughters and a good hip hop move.

I eat meanly lobster is my favourite O.P.I at the moment.

Sadly, this is the last photo I will take in these shoes. It’s time to go.

3 years on. This is still one of the best teacups. Thank you Jessica Greenwood.

The word.

Georgia wins the best sister award. I kinda of adore my Christmas present.

Over a month on and my shins are still pink. It’s a nice contrast to my turquoise nails.

The mind boggles at the things Joel creates in his mind. Creative Genius.

I keep my beauties close by. This photo is one of my Top 10 Favourite’s of all time.

Hipstamatic selfie feat. ponytails, bad burn lines and the inner sanctum. My room.

A quiet day in the office isn’t so bad.

I got new spotty pyjamas and I painted only 3 nails. Great Success.

Oh yeah. That’s my new love, my kindle.

I love sitting outside and taking in a bit of fresh air. Fresh is good for you. That’s a fact.

Welcome to the new year!

I love New Years. I’m so big on reflection so New Years is the perfect time to sit and reflect upon the year that way and the year that will be. I love thinking about all the big things that happened, all the small things, the people that I met, the events, the moments, the hard times, the good times. I love to think about it all, remember the things I’m thankful for and all the good things I have to look forward to.

2011 in summary.

My best friend got engaged to my other best friend. What a day that was.

I went brunette!

My beautiful Laura got engaged to her man.

Davey and Mel got married and we had a family holiday in Tasmania.

I got a blunt fringe and learnt how to colour coordinate with my friends.

Countless engagement parties.

Dress up parties.

A year of these ladies in this house.

Milestone birthdays with friends.

Milestone birthdays with family.

Front row seats to my best friends wedding.

Birthday picnics for me.

This girls wedding!

Georgia is all grown up and graduated. Oh.. and stunning at her formal.

I got to be a part of this special girls most special day. What a treat.

I went on my very first but hopefully not my last cruise.

If I had to summarise this year I would use two words, weddings and Canada. The people in the picture above have all moved to Australia from Canada and have been such a huge part of why I had a great year. Some of them I have known years.. some.. only 2 months. But they are so critical to why I am so happy. Some of my best friends got married this year and I was a big part of their days.

2011 was a crazy amazing year.

2012 is clear, fresh and unwritten. I can’t wait to see what words I’ll use to describe it, what pictures I’ll have to share. If you can’t wait either, you should stayed tuned to this blog. I promise to make regular (ish) updates on what will be a rockin year.

Cheers, love and hugs. Cos turns out I’m more of a touch person than I realised.

Resurrect Me.

After reading A million miles in a thousand years by Don Miller, I became enamoured with the idea of living life. Living a crazy full life is different to living a life that you truly enjoy. My life is always crazy and full, which is good, but I want to make sure I am really squeezing everything out of life. So on a Saturday afternoon, after a lovely brunch celebrating a beautiful friend’s 30th, I was exhausted. Normally, I would have taken a nap while I fell asleep to some TV, but in an effort to enjoy my life a little bit more, I set out to try and accomplish a lot of my favourite things in a small space of time. Here is the photographic record of a productive relaxing and fulfilling afternoon.

And once you live a good story, you get a taste for a kind of meaning in life, and you can’t go back to being normal; you can’t go back to meaningless scenes stitched together by the forgettable thread of wasted time.
