The cat's out of the bag!

Well, I guess I'll have to say something now! Nuffnang were generous enough to make me the winner of their Panasonic Lumix G2 competition! I was extremely excited when I found out obviously, and I've been bouncing around my room ever since! A big thank-you to Nuffnang of course, you should totally check out their site if you're an Asia-Pacific blogger looking to rent out some advertising space. Panasonic, of course. And Daydream Lily for having a blog so wonderful that I follow, otherwise I would have never known about the competition.

It still feels surreal, and now I just have to wait for it to arrive in the post. Unfortunately I can't have a whole day playing with it until I finish my exams (darn it), but I might sneak a few hours in. I discovered Lumix camera a few months ago when I was trying to figure out what camera I should buy, and was convinced that was the brand I wanted, they obviously heard me!

Meow Miu

Alice in the Eve Sophia cat print dress $89.95
General Pants Co.

Yes, yes, we all know about the Miu Miu cat/swallow/nakedness prints, and to be honest when it came out I didn't know what all the fuss was about. However, I think after seeing it on half the blogs I follow I've slowly warmed to the designs, but especially the prints. I love prints, I can't help it. I drool over fabrics with pretty prints and therefore buy plain colours to sew with rarely. When I spotted this dress at General Pants Co. my brain imploded, and then once more when I saw the price. I've decided that until I get a car to drain my funds, I shouldn't be spending a registrations-worth of money on a dress. Another project I'm adding to my holiday-crafts-fun list will be printmaking with fabric paint. Prepared to be appropriate, cat print.

Spiked necklace from Lovisa

As much as I have been meaning to style this recent purchase, I didn't get a chance to take a photo last time I wore it, so here it is in unimaginative form. A new jewellery store, Lovisa, opened in the Queen St Mall a few weeks ago - and I love it. Totally quirky and different jewelery. Their blog is worth checking out as well. I have a feeling this will be my go-to store for jewellery and the like. They have a wonderful headband there with big beaded stars on it, but it too I might have to appropriate, as it is a little out of my headband price range.
