Summer Lovin fun.

With only two weeks left of my summer holidays before I'm back to 6am wake ups and studying like a little fiend for my final year of my degree, I've been really enjoying my time as much as humanly possible. The past weekend was a long weekend due to Australia day, Now why I did spend the actual holiday working in my summer job myself and my cutie did get up to a lot of fun things. We went to the drive in and saw two movies while eating m & m's, went to the antique shop and browsed all the treasures walked along the beach, went to the lake and really just enjoyed being huge dorks together and of course going for a cruise in the val. I'm trying to be a good lil documenter and have been taking a lot more photos, It's really nice to look back and see some beautiful photos of your little adventures.

 It was so windy out at the spit, that the sand was like little knives cutting you as you walked past.

Things Miss Nikki Should Do Before The Summer Lovin Is Over.

  • Draw and paint away from the computer.
  • Make an outfit on the sewing machine. (assistance is 100% okay and probably best for everyones safety)
  • Go through entire wardrobe and sell and donate all clothes not needed.
  • Kiss a lot.
  • Go to the drive in again.
  • Go skinny dipping.
  • Play dress ups. (you own A LOT of pretty clothes Nikki)
  • Enjoy doing nothing before going back to uni for your final year of your degree.

Review: Lucy Luxxe

Summer is in full blast and between icy poles the postman arrived with my order from Lucy Luxxe. 
(It came the next working day! such a fast lil package.)

Lucy Luxxe is run by the wonderful Renee all by her lovely self. Another wonderful young Aussie doing her thing made me even more happy to buy some lovely things from her. So for a while now I've had an obsession with lucite jewellery, I love the way it looks and the colours are always to die for. There is many vintage clip on ones on etsy but I'd much rather wear a set made for pierced ears. After discovering Lucy Luxxe I knew I had to place a order. I ordered a four pack of earrings and Renee was lovely enough to include a fifth as a thank you( I literally jumped up and down with joy).

All the earrings are finished with professional quality, They all came with backs and I honestly can not fault any of these beautiful earrings I know they will receive a lot of wear from Miss Nikki. I'm going to email the lovely lady behind Lucy Luxxe for a custom piece I think very impressed! and very happy to get my lucite fix finally.

These blue ones match my drawing glasses perfectly.

The summer heat really got to my curls.

Everyday I have to pinch myself that I'm lucky enough to work with such wonderful clients. I get to draw up things for their business and personal lives and it's amazing to think my illustrations and designs will be seen by many. I was lucky enough to work with Tab on a lil lady for her decadent cake business.We worked on perfecting the design to make sure it was what she was after.

RAWards! Went off with a bang!

So last friday I woke up nice and early put my hair in pin curls and got ready for the big day ahead. RAWards was about to begin, After setting up my display I went out for a celebratory dinner and back in time for the doors to open. The night was full of talking to wonderful people and meeting so many talented people. Raw has honestly changed my life by given me the confidence and networking skills to fulfil many of my dreams. I'd love to thank everyone who has supported me through coming to awards or by being there for me through thick and thin. I felt so honoured to be chosen as a Directors Highlight for 2013. It was like a little steam room in the balcony room but us cute little sausages in there survived through drinking red lemonades.

Outfit rundown.
