I love my new sloth brooch!

Last night was the opening of the Fringe Festival in Adelaide, and the city has all sorts of random funky things around every corner this time of the year. It’s a great time to be in this city!

Between shows last night I stumbled across the hipster alleyway Ebenezer Night Markets in the East End. I came across a stall run by Jemity Design, who makes fantastic animal jewellery right here in Adelaide, which is sold on Etsy. She also donates 5% of all proceeds to the World Wildlife Fund to promote conservation. And I picked up this GORGEOUS SLOTH BROOCH! Slothbrooch

You can get some cute sloth earrings like this, from here!

Anyway, then I couldn’t resist wearing it for the rest of my Fringe-y evening. I don’t normally wear brooches, but this one will definitely be making many appearances. slothbroochfringe

Sloth Nail Art

I need to do my nails tonight in prep for tomorrow. Do you think something like this would be acceptable at a wedding?slothnailsSloth nail decals can be found here (sloth swag) and here (live slow) on Etsy.

 

Snoozan the Sloth

Snoozan. A shy little sloth, who doesn’t really know how to talk to strangers. But once you befriend her, she can talk your ear off for hours! She loves to watch animated movies with you and her arms are always open for a little hug. Snoozan is made to order, and you can get her from Etsy :)photo 3

Little Dancing Sloths

This weekend I journeyed to my hometown to see the fam. It was a nice, relaxing weekend spent with some of the most important people in my life. In particular, I went to see my beautiful niece perform in her end-of-year dance recital for:

Hip-hop…

hiphop sloth

…and contemporary.

She was absolutely stunning and so poised for a girl of only eight. No fear! Very proud to call myself her Aunt and have her blow kisses to me at the end of the performance. Kinda makes some of the things you worry about on a daily basis seem trivial.
