Oh, how I heart Karen Walker

Oh Darling Hearts

Karen Walker is maybe not my favourite New Zealand designer but I simply cannot cannot cannot get these sunglasses out of my head:

Duper Strength Sunglasses: $349 Grape & $329 Blue
It's the grape colour that makes my heart patter.


Yes. I do love the lookbook as well.

Sigh. I'm so predictable.



I also love this KW necklace.

Because this is turning out to be a no-good, very-bad week ...

Kat's 25th

Here's a photo of Kat's adorable puppy gnawing on my thumb.

p.s. That's Craig's manlymanly arm at the bottom of the shot. I am not that hirsute.
p.p.s. The puppy is a chocolate labradoodle (labraDOODLE!) called Bailey and is pretty much the cutest thing ever.
p.p.p.s. With me? puppies are like babies. I distrust them generally, like a few, am definitely not ready for one of my own.
p.p.p.p.s. Sir C and I will probably eventually get a cat rather than a dog anyway. You can't parallel that one to babies.

From the Archives

San Francisco, January 2008

Crossing the Golden Gate Bridge

There is Hope


Looking back at the city

(I was using a wide angle lens adaptor. The bridge isn't actually all bendy)

A plane and the Golden Gate Bridge!
Plane and the Golden Gate Bridge. Beating a dead horse.

Oh we beat this dead horse
Another dead horse!

Craig never really wore those glasses again. I wonder why.

Week Sixteen

365 in 2009!

Sunday: Easter Egg
Zombie-Jesus day. I ate an egg. Or two.

Monday: Auckland Airport. Gherkins!
A lazy last day in Auckland.
Craig in the McDonalds at Auckland Airport. This is, however, the moment I realised that I quite like Gherkins.
Year upon year of whipping them out of burgers without trying them and now? mm-mmm.

Tuesday: $1.60 to my name
The day before payday and we had $1.60 to our names, after doing things like providing lunch and travel of course.

Wednesday: Must remember to go to this Ex.
Checking the dates of the Monet exhibition. Thankfully I still have a couple of weeks!

Thursday: Nailpolish Tester
After lunch with my favourite Petra, we wandered a department store and I tried out nailpolishes.

Friday: my cute, UNIQUE, shoes
My afternoon was veryvery quiet. I loved the shoes I was wearing. My totally, completely UNIQUE* shoes.

Saturday: Raspberry and Feijoa Gelato
At a fabric fair in Brooklyn, I sat in the sun and ate Raspberry and Feijoa Gelato.
It was delicious but by the end I was so cold I had to put my jacket on.


Self Portrait 15 with eyeliner

*Did you guess? they aren't completely unique. My baby sister and mother each have a pair.

I Tweet Too Damn Often...

ohdarling: Drinking Cranberry juice with a splash of Rosewater. But no Jameson. It's a Virgin Rosebud! (dirty)

With a few simple (inappropriate) (or HILARIOUS) words, I realised that I have sent THREE THOUSAND twitter messages.

Either I spend way way too much time on Twitter, orrrrrrrr perhaps I've just been using twitter for a long long time. And I have! since April something-or-other 2007. Two years, most definitely.
I only tweet (on average) 4.10958904 times a day. That's nothing!

Okay. So I just went back over allallall my twitter messages and my very first one was in MARCH 2007 :
