Recent Selfies and personal style

I haven’t done a post in a little while, I have been practicing, editing and takjng alot more photos again with my dslr. I’ve been focusing a lot on my little DinoGirl and her development and learning as we tried to figure out whether to send her to big school next year or to another year of four year old kinder (we decided on another year I four year old kinder, and that will all be in another post), and I’ve been working a lot on getting my business and website started. It’s exciting, I can’t wait to launch it all and for it to all come together!

But in the interim, here are some photos from my iPhone I’ve take over the last few weeks… You can more out over at my Instagram account: liz_thejoycollective

{Daily Delivery} – Fashion Friday

A friend of mine posted a beautiful image to her Facebook page, The Last Doll Standing, and I fell in love (the first image below), and it reminded me of Kanye West’s film clip to his song, Runaway.
The beautiful bird lady and her delicious feathers and make up.
Personally I loved the film clip, in its entirety, and the song as well. The guy is a bit of a musical genius, in my opinion, and I do think you often have to ‘appear’ as somewhat of a wanker to be that good in your field. You have to get a thick skin and be able to beat off the haters and negative people who try and bring you down.

But I digress.
So after seeing the picture my friend posted I then watched the Runaway film clip again, and googled the female model in the clip.
I never knew but she is also a Victoria’s Secret Model.
Her name is Selita Ebanks.

Pink Hair: I want it.

I’m becoming increasingly obsessed with the thought of colouring the ends of my hair pink.

And I think I’m going to go do it over the weekend.
A mothers day present to myself!

I think I will just try out the hair chalk that I’ve seen around at first.
If I love it, and my Husband doesnt flip, I may do it more permanently, maybe.

But here’s some colour inspirations for you.
Would you do it? Have you done it? Let me know!

Quick Post- week of outfits

Jut a quickie post!
Here are some of my casual ‘Mummy’ outfits for the week.
I’m loving nautical stripes and sneakers at the moment.
Navy/white stripe long sleeve tee from sportsgirl.
White sneakers and indigo blue skinny jeans from Cotton On.
Orange skull scarf from Kmart.
Pink 7/8 jeans from Dotti.
And the total surprise find, which I would never have found myself, but we’re given them as part of my Christmas present from my Mother In Law – floral patterned jeans which are super comfy and have just the right amount of stretch to them, from ICE!

So it definitely goes to show you don’t always have to shop at all the best brands to find some cute pieces that look more expensive than they actually are.

Have a great weekend and happy shopping!!

I’m a bit of a bargain hunter.
I love having a few key pieces that I spend a little more money on that are classics, and mixing them with vintage and cheaper options.
The skull scarf was either $12 or $15 – you can go wrong! It works with so many outfits.
