AA Nylon Tricot High-Waist Legging

I am very scared
I am scared of these leggings
Scared they will be worn

Turns out it's AFL Grand Final Day

Buff men in tight little shorts
Go the underdogs

Lovely package exchange

My package finally arrived! I love everything in it and I am immensely impressed by the wrapping paper. Look at that fabric bird chirping my (embroidered) name!

Sarah sent me some beautiful stuff, including vintage handkerchiefs with "E" monograms. You can see other people's packages on the flickr pool here.

At least it's only a small tub

The pot of yoghurt
It's sat in the fridge for weeks
It's no longer good

Lovely Packages

My packages came
They came and so did a smile
A chubby-faced smile

My Life, My Loves, My BROWNIES

A few months ago, I posted about a giveaway that I won from the lovely blog My Life - My Loves

I finally remembered to take a photo of something I baked from the cookbook! These brownies tasted much yummier than they look in the photo. The book under the bowl is not the cookbook (it is a terribly boring textbook).

Picture below by Sharnel of My Life - My Loves.
The prize included the book and oven mit (but sadly not the cake).

I'm sure no one would have read the original post so I'll just be lazy and re-post it here:

I won a giveaway from My Life, My Loves. Sharnel, who writes the blog, is a fan of grosgrain ribbon (me too - well, who isn't?), Dirty Dancing and Jenny Morris. Also, it would seem, she runs a cupcake company in Brisbane called The Cupcake Company. Their blog is pure cupcake porn. (Not in an R-rated way! In a pink frosting, silver cachou and cake tier way.) Check it out! And if you're in Brisbane, order some cupcakes and tell me what they taste like!

Thanks, Sharnel! Everything I've made from that cookbook has been delicious. Mmm.

Baking in two parts

Cooking in the nude
Assists the cook in keeping
Their clothing spotless

Cooking in the nude
Puts the cook in danger of
Burning genitals

Whinge for the day

It really shits me
When people get on the train
Before I get off

Perth has hosted an uncharacteristic number of art and craft markets in the recent weeks. I enjoy these because I can justify over-spending by telling myself that I am "supporting local business." Here's a small selection of goodies I bought that are now hanging on the wall:

Little painting on wood by Creepy, purchased at the Made On The Left market.

Large collage by a local graphic designer who goes by the moniker Franc. He has cool business cards.
Also purchased at Made On the Left.

Print by Scarlet and the Sea, purchased at Perth Upmarket.

Print on canvas by Champ and Rosie, purchased a while ago at Upmarket.
(If you can't make it out, it says "cardigans are warm.")

Painting by Sam Knest from Mixtape Gallery. Okay, I didn't buy it at the markets but I did buy it during Outskirts during the PFF, on a day when I visited a few different markets.
