Here are some pics...enjoy!

Good description of a corgi

Corgi - an approximately 25 pound dog that was bred to move (herd) cattle outweighing it a 1,000 pounds or so and the dog won. That sums up a lot about their outlook on life.

Don't you just love 'em! :-)

That's my little Bella in the pic...bunny wabbit :-)

Korgi - Sprouting Wings

I came across this really cute book online. It tells a story of a girl and her corgi Sprout! It's full of adventure and looks really fun. The illustrator used to work for Disney, and I have to say that his drawings of this corgi are absolutely amazing and adorable!

Check out the book here.

My Christmas Wish List!

So I thought I would post a list of the few things I wish I had / would like to get for Christmas :-)
First off I'll start off with certain electronic items...

I have been wanting one of these for a while now. I keep getting this urge to draw whenever I'm working on a design, and this would be the best tool for that. I can't always get the result I want by using my mouse. This is my number 1 gift :-)

I was using this screen at my previous job and I absolutely fell in love with it. The look, and the's just perfect for my kind of work. I have been struggling a bit trying to design on a 13" laptop screen, so this would be a great addition to my design tools.

Our digital camera mysteriously stopped working all of a sudden, and we haven't been able to take any good quality pics of our two babies, Bella our corgi, and Liam our beagle. It's really unfortunate and I feel like we're missing opportunities to capture those special moments with them.
Now we go to the gifts I could use in my new *brown & turquoise* office

These are so perfect for my brown & turquoise themed office. They're absolutely stunning.
Hopefully going to need them once my business kicks off and I have lots of documents to file :-)

I thought this frame was absolutely beautiful, and perfect to display a pic of my soulmate and I.

I love how you can personalise it with your names :-)

This will match the room perfectly, and will definitely come in handy to post any important notes, and for favourite pics :-)

These would look great on the couch in my office, just to add that little extra sophistication :-)

And lastly, to finish off my office, this lovely wallpaper on the feature wall would look absolutely fabulous!
Now we move onto the gifts that my princess Bella could use...

These are so cute! Bella would love these

I love this polka-dot collar...too cute!

And the FINAL gift on my wish-list, the most adorable gift is....


So what is on your list for this Christmas?

Brown and Turquoise!

I now have my own office space at home, and I decided that I was going to decorate it & go wild!

My colour theme is Brown & Turquoise...and Im so excited! I love the combination of those two colours. While I was doing some research online I came across a blog that features everything brown & awesome! Check it out here

Now I have one central point to get inspiration with these beautiful colours. Can't wait to start decorating! :-)


Bella's new favourite thing to do is to lay on her back completely still! It's the cutest thing ever...and her face looks adorable when she's looking at you upside down.
What a cutie pie!

My Site of the Week

This weeks' site comes from I love the use of colour in this site, its similar to what I am already using for my own design studio I guess great minds think alike :-).
Haha...I also really love the footer design, the overall site is very clean and layed out perfectly in my opinion.

Great job! What do you think?

My latest work...

This is the second Minimal Groove party, and I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to work on the flyers for both parties.

The face & back of head was designed by a friend of mine, and this is where my inspiration came from.

Please let me know what you think of the designs!

My Site of the Week!

I have to say that I think Australian designers are extremely talented. Most Australian websites that I visit just wow me, and they're always so original and have that little bit extra. This one is no exception.

I love how everything was put together so cleanly and simply. Clean and favourite :-)

I especially like the part in the middle with the man running and the swirly thing...would love to know how they did that...

Sprint: Plug into Now!

This is one of the coolest things I've seen on the web lately. Click on the image above and it will take you to the site. They will give you every stat they could think of, ranging from how many babies are being born at this moment, to how much money is being spent online (in the US).

Check it's pretty interesting!

Site of the week!

I missed last week's "Site of the week"...sorry! :-)

But here is this week's favourite.
I came across this designer called Veerle Pieters and her blog, which is absolutely stunning visually. While browsing her blog I found that she has her own design company, and here is the website. I absolutely love her way of designing, especially her use of colours. I hope to one day be as good as she is!

Corgi - Dogs 101 on Animal Planet

No babies

My little princess Bella won't be having any babies because she is getting spayed on thursday!
Shame my poor little girl, I'm quite nervous for her, I hope it isn't too painful.
I also hope that she recovers well and quickly because next weekend we won't be here to take care of her since we'll be on holiday. I hope she'll be fully recovered by then.
Poor little Bella

My Site of the Week!

I've decided to start a weekly post called "My Site of the Week", where I will be posting the best website I have seen in that week.

Our first showcase belongs to Toya David, a designer living in Houston Texas.

I absolutely love her website's design and the use of colours. Pink and black are one of my favourite colour combinations...and she pulled it off really well.

Let me know what you think of the site!

Keep your eyes open for the next Site of the Week, I will be posting every friday.

New electric Mini

BMW Mini has created the first electric electric Mini...pretty cool hey?
It will be released early next year, but only to commercial and private customers in the US, and only 500 are available for now. Europe will be the next lucky ones after the first release.
Finally...a good-looking "green" (eco) car...YAY!
Don't you think that Prius is ugly??
I wonder how much this cutie will cost? that an error!?

Have a close look at the keys on this new Macbook, and tell me what you see. Something is wrong there...can you tell what it is?

If you can't...just scroll's quite bad...

What's going on there? And where is the "B"??

Haha...well done Apple...well done :-)

Finally...a dog park

I was getting quite upset that we don't really have any dog parks in this country, and we aren't even allowed to have dogs at regular parks...not that those parks are any good anyways. I kept reading on that almost everyone on there take their dogs to dog parks (in America), and about how much fun it is...and I want that too!
So I did some searching on the net, and I found this great place called Walkhaven Dog Park! YES! I was so happy...finally somewhere I can take my dogs and let them run free and meet other dogs. The only downfall is that it's a little bit further than I would have liked, but I think it will be worth it. I can't wait to take them there :-)

I want an ipod!

These really cool, funky, bright ipod nanos have arrived...and I really really want one!
The only thing I can't decide on is what color to get...maybe pink, maybe blue...or silver...hmmm...

What do you think?

Cute new movie

There's a really cute movie coming out soon, and it has a cute little dog with Johan Travolta as the voice (a weird choice, but its ok). "Bolt" kinda looks like he could be a corgi, if they changed his colors :-)
I wish they would use more corgis in!
Look out for the movie, I'm sure it's gonna be a good one to watch

Posh Becks loves my Bella!

Ok ok...not really. :-) hehe

I found this really cool website where you can upload any photo you want, and they magically place it into a scene of your choice.

Some of them are quite funny, give it a try! calendar

I found this calendar on It's this year's calendar, and its absolutely adorable! I wanted to order it, but since we're almost done with 2008, it would be a waste of my money.

They are currently taking in new photos for the 2009 calendar, and I cannot wait to see it. I am also kind of thinking about submitting a photo of my princess Bella...then she'll be famous! Haha!

Watch this space...

2 and a half years

On monday the 13th of October, my boyfriend and I celebrated our 2 and a half year anniversary.

We're almost at the 3 year mark, and these have been the best years of my life. I am so happy and lucky that I have found my soulmate, whom I love with all my heart!

I love you so much Gavin! You mean the world to me :)
