Life, Melbourne

Life & Photography

Life’s been crazy busy this past month, I can’t believe we’re already in June! Thankfully the Melbourne winter hasn’t been too cold and even though there have been lots of rainy days we’ve also had a lot of really warm sunshine come through.

I recently attended a spectacular theatre show of Don Quixote performed by The Imperial Russian Ballet Company. It was absolutely wonderful with the highest quality of ballet we’ve all come to expect of Russian dancers. Their precision and energy was so beautiful to watch, as was their ability to light up the stage with their expressive faces and graceful movement. 10/10!

Then there were the beautiful sunsets! It was actually on the night of the performance that I walked to St. Kilda beach and saw the calmest water, smooth as silk and completely still in the distance. All the people there were silent, not a single voice came to mind and there we all were admiring that beautiful and serene moment when the sun crossed over the horizon. I loved the spiritual feeling within my soul that evening.

On other days there were picnics in the backyard alongside my gorgeous black cat, who was uncharacteristically thirsty and drank straight from the tap! Then the arrival of some wonderful snail mail from new international pen-pals, days spent wrapping our Mishka Collection greeting cards/sending promo postcards, more visits to the beach, dinners with friends at funky restaurants, rediscovering local parks and the beauty in nature, and not to mention dreaming of my dream home!

Life is going at full speed and I feel like I’m barely keeping up! I’m still reminiscing about my European travel adventures, my beautiful shop and the simple days of life in Watford, but I’m grateful for all the memories created in Australia so far as well. Enjoy your week!

2013 in Photographs.

Whoa, what a year 2013 has been! From exploring our favourite European cities to running our shop in Watford (UK) and finally arriving back home in Melbourne after almost 2 years of being abroad, 2013 has been packed with fun escapades, new experiences and enchanting discoveries.  From attending many London movie premiers to walking the streets of that captivating city, it was an honour to have lived so long in the UK. Something else which was very exciting was publishing our very own magazine about Paris, attending our first Aussie market this month and reuniting with a special pet after many days of being apart. Launching our Mishka Collection and visiting Spain (including Barcelona twice!) would have to be highlights. Goodbye 2013, you’ve been surprisingly pleasant and enjoyable. We can’t wait for the New Year!
