Wild Flowers.

Somewhere in between my my little online vintage business, behind my family, friends and boyfriend and wedged in between shopping, clubbing, twitter, facebook and the constant buzzing of my phone, I was feeling lost.

Lately I have been longing for silence and simplicity to clear the rushing of my head, so I decided to disappear for a few days. I turned off my phone and told my close ones that I was going on a imaginery holiday for 4 days. I know what your thinking - what a fucken weirdo. Yeah, I know. That's what most of them thought too.

On Thursday I started my day off with a massage, (a voucher that my boyfriend gave me for my birthday last month) then I bought a heap of pampering products, had a long bath and finished it off with a facial and a foot soak. 

I headed down to a little park near my house with a homemade iced mocha, chocolate, brie cheese & crackers and some grapes. I admired the pure beauty of the view, the breeze, the smell of the trees, the pretty flowers and my clear mind.

I have been tossing and turning about some major decisions in my life including an overseas trip (hopefully a permanent move if I can figure out my visa) and I finally feel that I am starting to clarify the direction I am heading towards in 2012. Here are some pictures that I took at the park and on the walk home. I hope everyone has a delightful weekend xx

  11. Lovely photos. I hope you find the clarity you're looking for, I know what you mean though, I regularly get that feeling, like a bubble of unrest I just can't put my finger on and the only answer is to take some time out. xx

  15. It's always nice to just escape the chaos of your life, step back for a moment & just enjoy getting some perspective.

    I hope your mind is clearer & that you feel comfortable with the big decisions you have ahead of you. I'm sure you'll make the right ones & in a few months time be so grateful you made the decisions you did.

    Your photos are lovely - my faves are the ones of the city skyline. The pink one is just gorgeous.

  35. Sometimes.. the world needs to be surrendered, and space is what you need.

    A massage, a bath, a book, a walk. We all need a little bit of relaxation to settle our senses!

    I love all of the images

    hugs (^.^) hope to hear from you *

  45. That actually doesn't sound strange at all! I think it was a great idea to take an imaginary holiday. One day a week I do not answer my phone unless it's my husband or my mum. It is my day each week to be quiet and not be tied down to communication technologies. It's recharging. I love your photos!
