I am so very excited today!! Tonight I'm going with a group of friends to the Mumford and Sons concert in Melbourne. Yay!! I love love love them. I remember years ago when they first released Little Lion Man I was finishing my university thesis and had their first album on rotation. Then last year I was lucky enough to see them perform at Glastonbury in the UK and even though it rained throughout their entire set it was pretty amazing. So tonight will be no exception I'm sure, I'm so pumped!

Since moving back to Australia from the UK one of the things I miss the most is the array of ever changing exhibitions at galleries and museums. I adore art. Something about wandering through the whisper filled corridors of museums on a rainy weekend, which was quite often in London, always inspired me. However, Australia is so far away that we don't always get the amazing exhibitions that tour Europe and The USA, then you can imagine my delight when I saw the National Gallery of Victoria were hosting Radiance , an exhibition of works by Seurat, Signac and Luce. I just about fell off my seat! The exhibition begins November 16th and runs through until March 2013 and I fully expect to go multiple times!

By now we can safely assume that I am obsessed with Society Social and Roxy (it's founder) also has a blog called My Cup of Te. This week I was absolutely dumbfounded when I read her post on Made Goods. I wasn't previously aware of Made Goods but I can tell you I have only visited their site once to be able to share the link and I will never browse their products or encourage anyone else to do so. If you haven't read Roxy's post about her brothers experience with one of the founders you really should! As someone who studied for a degree in business/ marketing with a major focus on retail, in addition to working within the retail industry for close to 12 years my jaw dropped while reading this post. I hope Made Goods track their website address or name in Google alert and are seriously reflecting on the damage done by one individual, let alone a founder.

Since buying my amazing Society Social bar cart last week (that's already downstairs and waiting for me to open up!) I have been fascinated with how people are accessorising them, not that I wasn't already but I'm at a new extreme now. I love love love this video by Jamie Meares from Furbish, can I have everything from that room shipped to Australia please and magically arranged exactly the same?!

Since arriving in Australia from the UK I have had a serious case of nesting and this week was no exception. My nesting this week came in the form of a bar cart!! Not just any bar cart a Society Social bar cart from Ada and Darcy. I only recently found Ada and Darcy online and already have my eye on a few of their cushions but it was the Society Social bar cart that was at the top of my list. I have the perfect dead space in my living room for the bar cart to go but first I need to start accessorising it! Uh Oh!
