Carried Away

A few weeks back in honour of my loves birthday, Valentines Day and his return to Australia, we jumped on a mountain bound train for a cheeky little Flapper Dapper Vacay. Despite being in the midst of Australian Summer, we arrived to find the mountains shrouded in an icy mist, which for lovers of winter woollies like ourselves, was a dream come true. I momentarily shed my coat and gloves to snap some pictures of one of my very favourite dresses, whose tartan trim coincidentally matches one of Tim's very favourite ties.

We stayed in the Carrington Hotel, a grand old Victorian hotel with more stained glass, chandeliers, creaky floorboards and plush velvet fainting couches than I ever thought imaginable. Built in 1882 it is the only 19th century grand resort hotel still operating in New South Wales. I've been creeping around this place for years but staying the night took my adoration to a whole new level, I left daydreaming of taking up residence there full time, ala Jack Torrance.

On a side note -  for anyone who follows along on my instagram, you'll know that I've recently traded in my signature bob in favour of a strawberry blonde curly mop (soon to be platinum) you can expect her to be making an appearance here very soon...

  10. I love the Carrington too, very suave and old worldy. The upper mountains always feel like a step back in time. Gorgeous dresses- especially the blue one with the button detail-swoon. xx Shauna

  13. Hi Katie, just wondering why you always have to post pictures of yourself looking like you just sucked off Tim? I mean I get it - you have sex- you know most people do too right? They just don't post those intimate moments online for the world to see. The way that both of you have to flaunt it in everyone's face that you're having sex is pretty sad - I mean are you trying to prove to the world that you two "love" each other - or are you trying to prove it to yourselves? Just shows that Time never got over Jesse and you're insecure about it. Anyway Tim looks like the kind of guy that would last 10 seconds so I guess there's heaps of time after for you to be snapping those post coital selfies.
    Also good luck showing that you look "pretty" without makeup by posting a picture of yourself in your underwear...of course the underwear pic is absolutely necessary right? Anyway please be assured you have nothing for people to be "jealous" of - those massive under eye bags and the badly dyed fake blonde hair are nothing to gloat over.

    3. Jesus... what a nasty, personal comment. Don't read her blog if it's not your thing, dick.

    4. WTF? I'm surprised the Troll Anonymous has the time to read your blog let alone comment. Anonymous comes across as not just a little bit obsessed. Personally i would have given up reading a long time ago if i was so offended by your pics. Sounds to me like someone has a severe case of sour grapes. Now imagine the face on that.
      I have posted as Anonymous also only because i don't have any of the mentioned accounts.

  14. Oh, it's not a polite way to say "you look scarry", nobody deserves a sentence such this!
    But I want to say something about your blog, I've followed you for a couple of years, and I did have the "sincere" feeling of it, but nowadays your pics are still so beautiful but a little overwhelming putting so many naked pics with your cute boyfriend. Maybe I feel this way because I follow you on instagram too.
    Anyway, do whatever you want of course, and be happy but I want to say I miss your old style of blogging and documenting your life.

  15. You look stunning.

    The person above needs to get a job/life instead of leaving tiresome jealous essays on blogs.
