WEEKLY ROUNDUP


So, it's Sunday morning and I have eaten breakfast, twice. Now I am sitting down, drinking tea and writing this, while some of you are sleeping in or perhaps beginning a busy day! Here, a few things I loved this week. 

Word: adoxography: (n; English): a beautiful piece of writing on a subject of very little importance. 
Decor: Finishing off my room with a Reclaimed Wood Shelf with Basic Brackets by West Elm. 
Travel: Vintage photos of celebrities at airports (here) making you wish you looked just as elegant, a la Grace Kelly, or cool like Elvis.
Literature: 'A Certainity' by Beau Taplin (found on his Tumblr).
Graduated: My sister Stephanie graduated this week! Deserves a mention. 
Store: Mr. Kitly in Brunswick, Melbourne. Lucky for you, heaven can also be found online

SIMPLE BLACK CLUTCH

This little black cross body (which I predominately wear as a clutch) by Kate Spade is my saviour. I wear it practically every time I go out at night with family and friends, and also to small intimate gatherings. Everything - my favourite lipstick, lip gloss, phone, small wallet, and phone - I carry fits perfectly within this minimal and classically designed bag I stumbled upon the quirky design of Kate Spade New York on my travels to America, and fell instantly in love. Usually bright colours and quirky features are not my style; however, I was quick to learn that Kate Spade caters for all - with classic designs for the minimalist and businesswoman, to the eccentric lady who takes the risk and damn well pulls it off because, hey, it's Kate Spade. 

I purchased this lovely piece earlier this year when Kate Spade opened their first store in Melbourne's Emporium, and you can find it here. While you're at it, you can just check out their entire range here. C'mon, I dare you.

NEW YORK STATE OF MIND

So, it has been over a year since I have visited New York, or any other country in a matter of fact. And, as of late, all I can think about is travelling again.

I haven't visited many places, but there's just something about New York. It was the lights, the crowds, the architecture, the art and form of the City that awakened something within me. Instantaneously, I was overcome with an urban persona that emulated the buzz of the city. Before I knew it, I was jaywalking, using the subway and hailing cabs like I lived there. And it was those moments, in only a split second, when New York had a piece of my heart.
