"Because when you stop and look around, this life is pretty amazing."

Things surrounding us, things that are readily available are easily forgotten and easily taken granted of. I have spent half of my life in Australia and have only been to a few cities outside Melbourne, since most of my holidays are spent overseas or back home. I swear it's not only me, I have met a few others who share the same experience and it is simply because Australia is easily accessible for us. Last weekend I decided to change my habit and did a bit of exploring with mum and Calvin.
 I have always wanted to visit the infamous Wisteria tunnel in Japan. However for the moment, I can only dream due to annual leave shortages, so instead I found one closer to my current location! We went to Yarra Glen for lunch at Hargreaves Hill then visited this gorgeous garden with Victoria's very own overwhelmingly beautiful wisteria tunnel. Instead of trying to describe its beauty in words, I'll let you guys enjoy it through the rest of this post!

A Table of Dessert


I made a dessert table earlier this month for Maddie's 1st Birthday party! The theme was Teddy Bear's Picnic, hence the picnic basket full of teddies. Nothing much to say, just enjoy the pics! And happy national dessert day for yesterday!

Splash of the Pastels

To me, spring basically equals to pastels in terms of fashion. When you are surrounded by both blooming and fully bloomed flowers, it is inevitable to be inspired by the surrounding environment and consequently you feel like adding spring elements to your outfit. 

Besides the usual and classic floral prints in spirng, I am also loving abstract prints such as this watercolour inspired top and speckled necklace from Emclectic Collection. Because it is abstract, it does not have a concrete or defined shape thus it allows my mind to wonder, dream and explore. I love the whimsical element and versatility from both pieces. The necklace is at a perfect length for layering for a casual look, or simply wear it by itself for a more sophisticated feel. 
With the initial desire to continue with her Visual Arts portfolio, Emily Vuong has also created a collection of wearable artworks. Emclectic Collection is a Melbourne-based handmade jewellery line that utilises polymer clay to create gorgeous geometric necklaces. Each pieces are handmade with care, ensuring high level of quality.
