12. the grass is always greener/winner of giveaway.


these self portraits were taken in between jobs when i had a break.

the grass is really greener on the other side, as after i finished making dvds and building a website, christmas was relaxing and fun!
going to sydney as well on wednesday for a week break which i'm looking forward to.

i love summer holidays. time to relax, travel and spend time with friends and family.

what's your favourite part of summer/winter?

  3. The grass might be greener on the other side, but it cannot match your dress' gorgeous colors. Love the poses.

    Have a Great New Year!

  38. Wow! Really pretty - you are lucky to be in Australia because, at this time of the year, where I love (In England) you could not wear what you're wearing without freezing half death (and I don't need to tell you that that is unpleasant! ;)

    I love the retro style of the outfit (the plait on the side goes really well) as well as the very pretty and soft colour of the jumper... not to mention the beautiful dress and stunning circular sunglasses. Everything looks really good with your lovely face and beautiful, dark hair.

    On a last note, this is a good blog and I encourage you too keep up the great work. :D
