DIY Love

In my cruisin around the internet today, I came across this easy peasy diy from pinkshirtsandcarwrecks.

A laptop riser made from wooden doorstops and some pretty tape. Simple as that.

Go here to get the low-down.

Spring has Sprung...

The first day of September has heralded the arrival of Spring in Brisbane. I even spotted the first frangipani flowers of the season this morning on my drive to work.

I've always loved this time of year, with its crisp mornings and warm afternoons and that certain "clean" smell in the air.

Spring means that soon the jacaranda trees will be in bloom and who doesn't love that splash of pale purple that brightens your view. There's a certain hill near my office where you stand looking back at the city and the valley between is dotted with many splotches of purple.

Spring means the return of shorts, with pale winter-white legs everywhere welcoming the sun's rays for the first time in a long time. Having dropped a few dress sizes since I last wore shorts, I get to go shopping for cute new ones (yay) or perhaps whip up a few pairs on my sewing machine.

Spring means the days are getting increasingly longer, so I will get to leave work before the sun disappears for the day and have more time in the afternoon to do, well, anything.

What do you love about spring?
