I love this australian designer, Michelle Jank, she is good at everything she turns her hand to, whether it be styling, beading, making chandeliers or fashion (as seen here)
These colours make my hungry.

Yeh, well i need one. And the fact that i know i need a jolt is kind if silly because i should be able to shake myself out of this rut im in.

My biggest problem is that i never make decisions...never big ones anyway, like i will never just quit my job or just move out or anything...

Ok, mini rant is over. I feel better..


Do u think that going overseas by urself is too scary? Keep in mind that i have NO sense of direction whatsoever and im a bit of a baby...could this pose a problem??I am thinking of having more of a live in experience of places rather than contiki style whirlwind tours...

Hey there old friend, my livejournal...

Im so embarrased to say that barely anything has happened lately. Like seriously i just thought it over...and nothing of great interest has happened in the last few months.

I am still musing about various things such as beatiful interiors...i.e Kelly wearstlers beatiful and opulent interiors...

Also, pretty magazines. Frankie still has a grip on my heartstrings...i will love that magazine foreverrrrr

2:07PM - Some teacups styling...and other life issues

some teacups styling
Originally uploaded by Holly Goes Vintage.
I have returned from melbourne again...i went for a brief (but very intense) time..to attend my cousins wedding...Might i add the first and most beatiful wedding ive ever been too!
It was great to catch up with my family that live in Tasmania - We caught up with family friends too. It was heaps of fun!

I started feeling very strange wen i was away tho..it was like this inspired feeling...a feeling that i could do antyhing and go anywhere, i started thinking up plans to move to Melbourne or to Tazzie...

Then wen i got back home it stopped..or i couldnt conjure up those feelings again...which is why i need to go away again!....i am really in Limbo atm

Do u like my little attempt at styling teacups in my bedroom - It was super fun!

10:44PM - Thinking out loud

Holly's (lack of) work situation

Well apart from working at the Cafe about 3 times a week...i cant say there is much else going on.
This week i did however work at the Qantas terminal again putting up a grand Prix promotion which was interesting..very labour intensive and repetitive but hey it was brilliant money and its paid experience which i certainly need. Looks like i will be getting this work one night every month. Tops!

I think my resume sucks. It kinda looks like a school assignment...and for a creative person it shows no evidence of design, eye grabbing or motivating...is it wrong to make it look a bit more 'creative'? like maybe put it on nice paper, put in a watermark? Add a little picture portfolio to the back of it??
I clearly need help.

Also, another thing that is getting to me..
Nearly everyone i talk to about Visual merchandising seems to indicate that it is pretty boring or repetitive or just plain crap..then again it is a good gateway for interior, fashion or events styling. But that takes a lot of work and im not sure if i can stand putting up with a crap job for a year or so...i have pretty high expectations for a first job which is kinda silly..but i know its possible i just have to get an interview (ITS HARD OK) so that i can knock their socks off! hehe yeh right.

I have been practicing styling things around the house, mantle pieces, my bed, my walls...and then i photograph them..i mean to me they look pretty cool but i really want some proffesional feedback..sigh.
oh well atleast its fun in the meantime.

I want to be a freelance Visual merchandiser
I want to be a stylist
I want to be an interior decorator/designer

Current mood: I think too much.

3:03PM - Some Designers Guild pics to lust over...

which one is your fave!?

Hello All,
i think it is about time that i said a very Merry Christmas to all my fellow LJ friends
I havent been very festive this month.. YET...i am trying to bring the holiday season into our house, the chrissie lights went up last nite on the deck, which looks good, but lopsided. oh well.

I had my work chrissie party a few nights ago, it was a good night, my boss was being very giving, even offering to pay for our cabs home. we had a great 3 course meal in Leichardt. i really love my work friends, so it was a fun night wiht lots of jokes and drinking. I got the 'Blonde' award..HA!

Not much else has been happening, i bought some new sandal ankle strap shoes with big blue pretty beads on the top...they are pretty as a picture.

ALSO..i took some chrissie gift card sets up to where i sell my cards, and i sold two already, which is great, the lady was apparently really excited about them..aww..

I am going to Melbourne for NYE, actually, i will be in Lorne at the 'Falls Festival'..which should be awesome if i can manage to get there, from taxi, bus, train, bus and shuttle bus..its a bit of a hike! But im ssuuuuuupppperrr excited about it :)
I really must take lots of fotos, of my cards, my shoes and at Falls...ill work on that !
