I'd like to take this time to thank all my readers as well as beloved friends old and new. 2010 enabled me to do some pretty fabulous things, and I treasure every minute. However, being one that has her thoughts focused on the future I can't wait for a new year and the new adventures it will present! thanks for supporting vivaevaa.blogspot! happy 2nd birthday!

last night was brilliant, fuelled with intergenerational dancing and cocktails by the pool! i wore my vintage rock & republic cut-offs, an (amazingly lightweight) linen shirt by country road, and a pure wool blazer by CUE. Possibly a little too warm for the blazer, BUT IT LOOKED AMAZING and i didnt care


sooooooo ready for bali. cant wait to get off this stinking island and live on another, much more secluded (and smaller) island for a whole month!. keep you posted!

lazy friday

its 3pm, im sitting by my pool with a soda and lime and a packet of columbines at hand - just finished swimming and trying not to look anemic for indonesia (i.e getting a lousy tan)and thought id bravely list tiny things that mean big. happy new years everyone.


1. Recess
2. Little kids showing you their muscles
3. Getting dressed out of the dryer or laundry basket
4. When you get caught in the rain and just don’t care
5. Correctly guessing the secret ingredient
6. Not making plans
7. When construction cranes get Christmas lights on them
8. Seeing Christmas trees through the window of someones elses house
9. Successfully regifting a present to someone who wants it
10. Drinking with Grandma
11. Just barely wrapping a gift with that tiny scrap of leftover wrapping paper

bali 2011

ahhhhhhh last day of 2010 today.

this year is going to be crazy - get ready for huge style blogging with our new vintage thrift store!! bali in 9 days - keep following to stay posted! so it seems everyones doing this 30 day challenge (props to Mr. Sparks and Marie).. i totally would jump on it.. but ill be moping around kuta for 23 days. so ill just find some WiFi hotspots around the island and blog brilliant commentaries.

i stuck this on my laoptop. dad told me i should probably get rid of it, as ill be going through pretty strict security at the international airport - might think im "one of them"

the most amazing ring collection i found. theyre so cheap in bali.

come on and wake me up

no school means staying at home by my sibling-less self - so I have been stuck watching dvd's... or maybe watching is not the word.. I just like to have the tv on for the company... and what better company that the girls from sex and the city.. call me a cliché but I will never get enough. Watching the early episodes convinced me even more that things were better before... so much that my crush on pointy pumps turned in to love.. that's right, for a while already I have been opting for the pointy shape and watching carrie stroll down the streets made me crave.. luckily I got a little flash back from shopping the other day, so I knew right away what had to be done.. the result: say hello to my new - lipstick red, 90's carrie pumps from zara.

the best thing $5 can get you; pt 1

a tailoring thimble - $3.50 - makes the best ring. Obviously it differs from a standard thimble in that it doesn't have the top head part. You're meant to wear it on the tip of your finger but I discovered if you get one 3 sizes bigger, you can wear it as a ring. I had this idea that I could get 10, one for each finger and thumb but I know that the man that owns Harvey's Tailoring supplies in Melbourne is very traditional and would probably start asking questions that I can't be bothered justifying, so not sure how to go about it yet.

Party Like it’s 1955

Since the ’50s, the 2.55 has remained the most iconic of all Chanel handbags. Karl Lagerfeld, who took over Chanel in 1983, reissued the 2.55 in all its original aesthetic glory in 2005. Since then, it’s been released as many reissues and variations, but for me, the classic original design is still the most fabulous. Nothing beats a classic Chanel 2.55. Long live the 2.55!

i'm soo delighted to say i'll be recieving my FIRST CHANEL HIGH FASHION PIECE in 3 weeks - duty free. so it'll hopefully be a little cheaper. a gift from mum and dad for 'hard work' this year. and yes. it'll be a 2.55
