Not so phone savy...

Do you "iphone" ?

As in....... do you have an iphone??

I know I'm probably showing that I am waaaay out of the phone-tech loop when I admit this but I'm yet to have joined the masses and jump on the Apple band wagon and buy one of these super smart - high tech phones.



You see, today my beloved Nokia (an older version... not that old though) started to show its age and is playing up indicating to me that its most probably on its way to mobile phone heaven. It's sad because for as long as I've been able to have a mobile phone (probably around 8 years) I've always had an easy to follow standard Nokia phone which I could always navigate through super well.



Now that I am on the cards for a new phone I am pondering whether to take the plunge and join the masses of iphone owners and users. (I'm not that phone savy you see!)

So I'm just throwing it out there for some advice from some other iphone owners...

Are they hard to use? Is it worth getting one?

Do you like your iphone?

Any feedback is much appreciated!

The Wurm...

This week I cast on Cat Readings version of "The Wurm Cowl" that I have ravelled here.

I've decided that this pretty project will be for my Mum.

Mum does so much for so many people she doesn't even realise it. So I'm making this for her as a gift! Everyone deserves a gift everynow and then to say thanks!

It's an easy going pattern, made with yummy Malabrigo worsted. If you've ever checked out The Wurm pattern before you will know its an easy combo of knitting and purling. I love it.

As you can tell I've hardly done anything (only 3 rows of garter, 5 rows of purl and 1.5 rows of knitting to be exact!!) but I have a feeling this will be a quick knit and I love that!!

You might also be wondering about my Little Rufflte. Don't worry, I haven't lost motivation! I actually ran out of yarn (don't you hate that!?) so I managed to pick up some more Malabrigo and will hopefully have it done and dusted soon!


More knit-news to come soon.

I'm playing along with Kootoyoo's creative space here. Whats in your creative space this week?

Lusting Lush...

On a recent trip to the big smoke (thats Sydney for all you NSW folks) I got my "retail" therapy on (not that I really needed to because I TOTALLY blew my budget, Oops!! What girl doesn't on a shopping trip, I mean really?!)

Anyhow, I came across the most devine smelling shop I had ever smelt.

I was so surpirsed when I entered the shop dropping the "Oh Wow!" and the "How Cool!" lines at everything I looked at.

Now I'm no "greeny" as such but I am totally into healthy, organic, handmade stuff and that goes for things that I use on my body too (i.e. cosmetics, cleansers, shampoos etc) so when I came across Lush I fell in love!

This place is cool!!
Check it out - here.

It's got a similar vibe to The Body Shop but is a little different too. When you're in the shop you can get your hands into all of the product testers, feel the texture of the face cleaners, smell the bath soap melts and fizzy bombs and even get a free facial!! You'll find shampoos and conditioners, gift packs, neck creams, face masks, perfumes... ah all the yummy things a girl could love!



I'm in love. I'm off to spend some online dough on my order now. hehe

(All pictures from here )

See you again soon :o)

Searching for Paradise???

Hey ya'll,

How has your week been treating you as of late? I hope only good things have happened and only smiles were shared around!

I've been thinking lately...

Change is in the air and I am looking at a possible relocation from my current home town!

It's such a scary thought for me and I'm nervous and kind of excited all at the same time but I have been wracking my brain thinking... where should I move? What's a nice town to go to? Where's a good place to 'start over' so to speak???


(image from here)

So Bloggy friends, I'm putting it to you! Where would you go or where do you think is a nice place to live? It could be exactly where you are, or your dream city/town?!

Any thoughts or ideas would be great! Leave a comment and let me know what you think!
