Oh deer

I used to pine over look at this deer everytime I went to the op shop and was surprised to come home one day and see her sitting on my desk in all her glazed ceramic glory after Mum had bought her for 50c =) I have called her the very original name of Bambi. Here is Bambi frolicking in the violets...

Speaking of violets I also picked up these cute earrings for a couple dollars...

What's everyone doing this weekend? I think for the rest of the day I'll catch up on some uni reading and then tonight I'm going out for Indian for my friend's 21st. I hope there's onion baji and pistachio kulif icecream, yum!

I'm still here!

Despite not having posted for a wea small time, the lovely Kani has given me an award for my blog. I love Kani's blog and she has a great eye for thrifty finds so this award is a huge compliment, thankyou =)

In return I'd like to pass this award on to some of my favourite blogs...

Tune into Radio Carly
Carly is a great writer and discusses lots of interesting topics on her blog.

Clothed Much
I love Elaine's blog because she proves that you don't need a lot of money or a huge wardrobe to look incredibly fashionable, which is a philosophy I've held for a long time.

Kendi Everyday
I love the writing that accompanies Kendi's posts but most of all her outfits!! At the moment she's currently remixing 30 outfits from 30 pre-selected items of clothing which again fits in with the minimalist wardrobe theme.

Our Tea Party
I'm so glad Penelope re-opened her blog as I love reading about her nifty finds. She has a cute etsy shop which you should check out as well.

Remade in Melbourne
Hayley writes about mindfulness and ethical living which I find really inspiring. She's also written a great series of posts on personal style which is definitely worth having a read of.

I'd also like to welcome all the new readers to my blog as I've noticed a steady increase since Kani's kind link. I really do try to post as often as I can and although that hadn't been for a couple months up until now it was mainly due to undertaking close to a four month field placement for uni. I appreciate all the readers who have continued to follow my blog regardless of my sporadic posting! To prove I haven't been completely slack here's a taste of one of my recent finds at a new op shop I discovered while on placement.

I found this sheer floral blouse for $6. I love the way it flows and I think the colours suit me really well. Can't wait for the weather to warm up (but not too much!) so I can wear it more.
