from the vault..... a few years ago anyway

 Okay so I used to get a little excited with my liquid eyeliner ;)

 The length of this dress is all over the place.... I still have it somewhere but I don't think I will wear it until I hem it up to my knees

Its kinda funny to look back  on past styles, obsessions and outfits...... you think you look bad ass at the time only to look back and kinda feel a lil embarrassed for yourself......seriously kinda don't know what I was thinking for the most of it..... but these pics remind me of fun times with fams and friends....

 Something funky was happening with my hair that night... I don't think it would straighten properly.... >.<

 I don't know why, but I love Niva's green shoes.... they pop so much... as well as my little yellow purse...I left one in London, along with my memory card :(

I think I will post some more old pics later.... well at least until I get to taking some new ones...I've been sick so I have basically been in PJ's all week but next week is the Meeka Ball!! Look out Meekatharra! My roommates best friend will be here and so will my sister and niece!!! Yay for East Coasters in WA... :)

Many Blessings and Happy Sabbath <3

open day

so we had an open day...... I spent that day painting faces....... there was a long line and this one kid from Meeka refused to go home until his face was painted even though his grandparents were walking away; starting the car and driving off...... I started to paint his face as fast as I could and then hurried him off in the hopes that his family were hiding around the corner..... but he still refused to go until he got the skeleton arms too....... all this communicated without words.....bless him..... I hope he didnt get into too much trouble....

Many Blessings,

Being so remote and far from anything, most weekends are spent at home trying to avoid the mob of kids that are constantly knocking on my door...."Miss Carmel! Miss Carmel can I come in?"....... Just the other day my housemate and I recorded some footage of it. If its not a hassle to upload I will put in on the blog so you can see what I mean....and watching it makes me laugh...... but to get away for the weekend, well that was really nice.

Although I wanted my housemate to come, she was stuck working :(   so off I went with two work mates. Minus the 16 hours of driving....the one free day we had at Kalbarri was really beautiful.

The open space and height of this lookout made me want to lie down.... lil scary but the view was amazing

 There were so many beautiful views and various lookouts at Kalbarri National Park

 Natures window <3

I guess to dress for comfort is sensible when your out and about in the was really windy, hot and there were a million flies around. But I wore my lovely Niuean Outriggers top cause I always like to rep my island.....

Shorts and canary yellow top: Big W
Tortoise Shell Glasses: Rockmans
Earrings: Gloss
Hat: Von Zipper

Best fun was spending most of the dirt road time in the back of the Nissan holding on for dear the most fun free roller coaster ever......and doing my "footloose front kicking" with this old lady who felt sorry for my because my friends didnt want to dance with me and the live band...... Wish I got a pic with Kerryl cause she's cool like that! Oh and we found a pink saltwater lake too :)

and sadly we made the long trip back............hope you are all well wherever you may be in your travels.....

Love and blessings
