So I’ve been trialling the iPad thanks to Vodafone for the past week to do my daily blogging tasks, including anything from replying to emails, playing around with Instagram, tweeting, receiving live notifications, using Skype for the first time (I know – in fact I skyped with Edric for a little virtual collaboration which you can see here) and writing this blog post! It’s probably the first time I’ve spent so long with an Apple touch screen devices, given I hadn’t owned one before and I was pretty much surprised to find that there was an app for all my blogging essentials – Blogger, Tumblr, Twitter, Etsy, Bloglovin and Facebook. Not to mention ASOS Magazine and Instagram (come follow me – “kisforkani”), both of which are so addictive. I’ve been thinking of switching to an iPhone when my plan ends and now I can’t decide which one to get. Given that Vodafone has a pay nothing upfront deal for the iPad 2 this Christmas and it sounds much like the familiar way of hooking up to a new phone plan.. I might accidentally end up with both. The photos above from my Instagram – clothing and outfits, a dollhouse I bought to put my perfume, make up & jewellery in, a record player I *discovered* in my living room, some red suede wedges I am dying to wear, oysters and salad, sunlight and early mornings and Christmas lights. Just snippets of my week posted on the easiest to use retro/vintagte photo editing program I’ve ever used.

December is the season of festivities. Last week Tom & I went to Carols by Candlelight at a local council park. There were tonnes of ‘family friendly’ kids activities such as face painting, bubble blowing and jumping castles.. as well as a large Carols program concluding with a laser show and fireworks. Going with the Christmas mood, we headed off to Ivanhoe to see the Christmas lights. A few days later it was Tom’s 21st birthday & we went to a quirky little Japanese restaurant for dinner. Pretty much my new favourite place with the best raw beef.. Wabi Sabi :)

 Wearing: Bardot beaded maxi dress & Kani headband

I was in a major Christmas mood this week and just had to wear this jewel green dress I bought impulsively for one of the many events and dinners coming up this festive season. I was almost going to wear it to Carols, wearing it around the house before going out until I suddenly decided.. nah. I guess it’s not very practical to wear something floor length trampling around grassy parks. Still love the colour and can’t wait to wear it out soon! Made this headband for my Etsy store but then fell in love with it too much to list it so it’s now mine :) Absolutely loving diorama like scenes on headbands!

Wearing: Bardot singlet, bandage skirt & necklace and ASOS platform heels
Last week I put together this outfit for a special guest post on the Bardot ‘Style File’ blog. All the bright colours in store really inspired me to dig out this pair of fuchsia and red pair of heels to create this bright little look. The refreshing colours in store actually really got to me and I ended up purchasing an orange and pink dress with an open back to wear for New Years Eve as well.. and then another jewel green dress later that night. I loved this blue necklace + pink/nude singlet + bright green skirt combination so much that I wore it out straight after to go to a birthday dinner. You can read more here and a big thank you to Bardot for having me over :)
