So finally I’m back from a sneaky little surf trip I took with some of my favourite surfer-belles! We travelled to Bali and then to one of my favourite new places in all the world Lakey Peak on the island of Sumbawa. Not much to do there but surf, lie around eating Nasi Goreng and drinking Bintang. Internet was barely existent but I suppose you could say that’s a blessing until you open your computer again upon return, ahhh! This trip was full of the usual highs and lows of a trip to Indonesia..tropical breakfast buffets, reef cuts, wicked sunsets, bartering wars, 4WD treks, crystal clear reef breaks and at least one NDE or better known as the ‘near death experience’. Back in Bali I managed to get some amazing goodies made that I hope to be sharing with you guys really soon.
I’m super stoked to come home feeling refreshed and ready for lots of exciting new projects coming up that will take me to more amazing destinations, stay tuned ladyloves..

It’s weird I haven’t been wearing much jewellery lately even though I will always have a serious jewellery/accessories obsession. This is my favourite cuff bought years ago from a good friend at a market where he sells antique jewellery from Rajasthan, there’s a sentimental aspect as to why I love it also but I won’t go into all the boring details, haha. Also been living in these Shakuhachi knit shorts since I ordered them online and this LowLuv ring I bought from the sweet ladies at Tuchuzy..
Well finally a long awaited outfit post, hoorar. In the last 2 months I think I’ve been home a total of 5 days, resulting in my bedroom being covered with 4 unpacked suitcases and a feral child pile of dirty washing, haha. Super stoked to introduce you guys to one of my favourite new love children, this crazy deconstructed tibetan bell dripping hobo bag, and hobo is definitely a fitting term considering its new owner, yes indeedy..
Mochila bags are made by Wayuu Tribeswomen, an indigenous people who live near the borders of both Colombia and Venezuela. Each bag is incredibly labor intensive to make and can take over 40 hours to make each one! You can check out and purchase original Wayuu Taya bags here where the proceeds from the sale of these bags goes back to the Wayuu people.
Just a little peak-a-boo of my outfit from day two of fashion week. Thank you to Rachel & Sue-Anne from StyleStalker and Zanita for snapping these shots. If you haven’t checked out the StyleStalker blog yet the girls have excellent coverage of the shows from SS11/12. Also a massive thank you to Shona and Sarah from Shona Joy for dressing me on day two and Shannon and Lucy from Desordre for tempting me with these Ellery Guillotine Ankle boots. Ps. sorry for the tragic right ankle leg-rope tan, maybe I don’t work as hard as I pretend to sometimes …xx
