Because, who doesn't love Goldie Hawn? 


This video is adorable and hilarious - vintage skit between Dean Martin and Goldie Hawn.

I discovered Saga Sig's photographs around the same time as I found Confetti System's work and immediately noticed the similarity in their colour palettes. 
Here I've paired the images I think work best together.

some things

The new rabbit ring I purchased with a gift card from a friend. 

Officially the most insane shoes I own, they make me about 5'8 (I'm really 5'3)
Thanks to a gift card from my aunt.

I love the weird architecture of this building. 

These blossoms make me happy.

People who know me like to poke fun at the fact that I am a cat-person. I wasn't always this way, up until two years ago I hadn't had a cat for maybe 15 years and was definitely a dog-person.
 Anyway, whenever it comes to posting something to do with cats I feel pretty self conscious and worry about the impending ridicule I may receive...but sometimes, just sometimes, you see something that is so great and just happens to coincidentally involve cats that you have to share it! 
I saw this on Poppytalk and went over to the website of the design duo 'Blow Up!'. Love their ideas and love their photographs. Their Etsy shop features these cat bow ties and collars. Too cool. Too bad Momo's birthday just passed, as she would really have loved to wear this pink frilly collar.....ok maybe I would have loved it and she would have hated it. 

do cats like wearing bow ties? definitely.

let's broaden our minds.

Filippo Minelli's work is gorgeous. These photographs are just pure magic!!
Happily discovered his work here and his website is here.

green tea & white chocolate marble cake

Last night, I got the familiar urge to bake. Upon request, my brother had brought back some matcha powder for me from his last trip to Japan and I've been thinking about using it as an ingredient for awhile now. I found this recipe here and mainly because I had all but two of the ingredients I decided to give it a go. I used a round cake tin although the recipe suggested a loaf tin and it came out fine. The only thing this recipe didn't add was some kind of frosting - and I LOVE frosting so I whipped up a new invention: white chocolate green tea frosting! This cake was so easy to bake and so delicious. The recipe is for a  marbled cake but I think that when I try it next, I won't separate the two mixtures because the bites I had from the green tea parts were SO much better than the rest. 
I love green tea and I love cake so this is basically my dream come true!
