I know I have been blog-absent lately but it has been a very busy past couple of days! I flew up to Townsville to babysit my niece and nephew over the weekend so my brother and his wife could have a mini holiday AND see the rocking Chris Cornell concert (epic jealousy but I just bought our Big Day Out tickets for 2012 and Soundgarden are headlining!!! whooottt!!! So that makes up for it! ;).
The video on the left shows my excellent babysitting skills- fart machine distraction ohhhh yeah!
Here are a few happy snaps from the weekend:
This is Maddy and Jackson; my adorable and trouble making niece and nephew! They are balls of mischief and we always have an awesome time hanging out together. Although it is definitely anything but a relaxing break, I always come back wanting a day off afterwards!
I love having a bit of girl time with Maddy. She is super creative and loves to experiment with fashions. We always get into lots of craft projects and plenty of costumes and dressing up. On my last night there we went out to dinner and she picked the most glamorous gold sequin dress with matching accessories to wear! Too cute! :)
I ordered my first package from Forever 21 and am waiting with bated breath for it arrive. Here is a few of the goodies I ordered:
I love the rad all over sequin dress and black ruffle dress. I've been dying to rock out in an all over sequin number and the ruffles will look fantastic for racing season here! The sheer skirt I picked up in the 'buy-one-get-one-free' clearance sale- so it came to something like $7! Sweeeettt! The cute little mauve number will transition well from night to day with different accessories and I'm super excited to get it!
On another fashion note, Domino Dollhouse have announced their new collection Dotty Noir. From the sneak peak I've seen on the website and NikStar's blog, it looks like a really young funky twist on classic 1950's pieces. I can't wait to get my hands on some! :)
