trip time.

i'm going to melbourne tomorrow!
have only been counting down for like, three months!
just went to the op down the road and scored two tops (shiny silver spots - hurrah!), a skirt (pretty floral delight), wallet, toiletries bag and mini sachel (for soundwave!) for $35.
i'm so ready for this trip, five days of awesomeness and then when i get back only eight weeks until i go down for good :)

hire me?

ok, big news.
i am finally doing it, i'm moving to melbourne!
it's been four years since my first visit and i've been down every six months since then.
these visits are no longer enough.
i'm doing something that i've never done in my whole life, taking a risk.
i have a very cosy life here in brisbane.
all my family are here, a huge group of amazing friends, a cute apartment, a well-paying full time design job and the list goes on.
in ten weeks i am moving down alone, with a car full of stuff and staying with a friend until i can secure a share house room.
then there's that whole issue of income.
this is my problem.
i am kind of FREAKING OUT about not having a job to fall into.
cue - leap of faith.

so, although i would love a design job i am being realistic and am aware of the fact that i'll probably end up doing anything i can to pay the bills.
so, i pretty rarely use this blog to communicate so personally, but it's worth a shot right?
if you are in melbourne and have a job/know of a job that will be available in ten weeks (or now really), hire me?
i can do design stuff, make totally awesome vegan treats, run errands, make lists, clean things, make coffee... sing and dance?
oh and i also need somewhere to live so all vacant share rooms, send my way!

cool, now i can say that i tried :)

p.s the strange picture is of me on australia day, post-hottest 100.
it pretty much sums up how happy i am about this move.



yes, i have joined the masses on instagram.
my name is amylcupcake.
i mostly photograph food and flowers, but who doesn't.



i did this branding for my boyfriend's band recently, micasa.
i'm pretty happy with it and can't wait to do some cd packaging!

home wedding.


ok so i rarely talk about love and weddings and gooey stuff here but seriously, this wedding is really adorable.
these guys have the right idea; home wedding, old crockery, mismatched chairs, home made cakes - stuff that is good!
if i ever get married, this is how it's going down.
