Tuesday Taster: Rainbows and Unicorns

I've been collaborating with the talented Michelle at Bok Bok B'Gerk. This has mostly meant that Michelle puts all her creative brilliance into designing and hand painting her splendid brooches, and then she gives one of each to me to share with you. For the newer collections though, I've got to go one step further and actually take part in the styling and photoshoots! This has been one of the best things, in my opinion. I have had a wonderful time pairing outfits with brooches. This particular shoot fills a winter heart with happiness. So let me introduce you to the Rainbows and Unicorns collection!

Garden Tartan

I am an online student studying at university. I’ve almost finished my degree, and while that feels like a great achievement, I can’t help but feel I’ve missed out on a few things. Students that study on campus get a really different experience and I’m beginning to become really aware of those things.

Tuesday Taster: Edward and a Scarf

@findingfemme wears green Review top with navy striped skirt and orange Mimco flats.

I've just come home from a French lesson where I ran from my teacher's house to my car, clutching my textbooks to my chest to protect them from the rain. It's chilly and I have the heater on to fight the cold and stop it from settling into my skin. It's weather for wearing many layers, and time to start wearing a scarf around my neck. Except, I tend to find I wear scarves more in spring and summer than in winter. Maybe that means I should invest in more winter scarves? Perhaps it just means that I wear more scarves in warmer months because I can style them multiple ways, like this one I'm wearing today.

Ballarat Heritage Weekend: Steam Train

@findingfemme wears navy flares and white loose sleeve blouse with navy broad brimmed vintage hat in Dior 'new look' inspired outfit on the steam train.

Every year at Ballarat Heritage Weekend I go on the steam train with my mum. It’s become an annual part of our calendar, especially since we end up going on Mother’s Day. This year is the third time that I’ve done a blog post about the steam train and you can see the pictures for those posts here and here. Each year, the steam train posts ends up being my most popular blog post. Because of that, I really struggled coming up with an outfit that would match the stand out style of previous years.

Autumn Yellow

@findingfemme wears mustard coat with bok bok b'gerk brooch and neck tie.

Yellow is my favourite colour. Seriously. This post has a tag on it for 'yellow'. Click on it and see how many wonderful outfits I've posted with the colour yellow in them. This one from last year is probably a stand out for me. When I first started blogging, I really wanted to get better at everything I was doing. Photography was a big part of that and I had to learn a lot, because I get other people to help me take the photos and I had to direct them. Initially I would often get frustrated not knowing what was going on behind the camera and not standing there changing it myself. I would often have photos I couldn’t use. It was a challenge to look through them and find some I could work with. Some shoots I organised haven’t ever made it to the blog. To give you an idea of how much work I put into the photos on my blog this a rundown of a typical shoot.
