I couldn’t believe it, when I read the above article I recognised the name immediately. Shanna Jackway – where had I heard that name before, I thought to myself, then it hit me. I’d watched one of her fashion shoots for The Adelaide* Magazine in September last year.

Last year I was lucky enough to do work experience at The Adelaide* Magazine which is published monthly and comes free in The Advertiser (Adelaide’s newspaper). I went along on one of the photo shoots where I met Shanna. She was beautiful and seemed very bubbly and happy. She brang along her own music and sung and bopped away in between shots.

These are the photos from the shoot taken from The Adelaide* Magazine November 2011 issue.

Isn’t she gorgeous, and I’m loving that white dress!

Yay for Adelaide talent! What do you think of her look?

I’ve decided to begin a new post titled ‘Favourite Outfits of the Week’ which will feature 3-5 bloggers per week. I will make my decision based on their style, originality, blogs, and of course their outfit!

This week I have chosen to feature four gorgeous girls: Becky (Becky Bed Bug), Yasmin (Yasmincruz), Joyce (Joyful Outfits), and Laura (Style and Sushi). I hope you can take the time to visit their blogs – I love them, and I’m sure you will too!

^ Becky wears Peacocks top, Cath Kidson skirt, and New Look Shoes. Visit Becky’s blog here.

^ Yasmin wears Gucci shades, American College bomber jacket, Mads Norgaard top and joggers, Zara suede bluchers, and Stine Goya scarf. Visit Yasmin’s blog here.

It’s pretty windy in Adelaide today, so this is one of the decent shots I got. My hair was out of control! This is one of my favourite t-shirts – I love Marilyn! And these are my new cargo pants. Happy Friday everyone :)

If you haven’t already heard, this is The See-Through Dress, also known as the Intamacy 2.0. The dress appears as above, but when the woman wearing it becomes aroused and her heart beat increases the dress’s material (leather and smart e-foils) detects this and becomes transparent .

The creator of Intamacy 2.0, Dann Roosegaarde has already won design awards for his new creation which he says “explores the relationship between intimacy and technology.”

What an interesting concept and design. But I’m not sure I’d actually wear it. What do you think?

Lately I’ve been inspired by all the DIY posts I’ve been seeing, so I decided to do one of my own. Nothing too fancy, just keeping it simple, and with Easter coming up this weekend what’s better than DIY chocolates? And it will only take you 10 minutes or less to prepare.

You will need a chocolate mold. I got this one from my local Reject Shop for $4 (it’s pretty cute). And you will of course need chocolate! You can choose any kind you like (dark, white, or dairy milk).

First you need to half fill a sauce pan with water. Put it on the stove on medium heat. You will also need a bowl which is big enough to sit on top of the sauce pan and heat resistant.

Once the water has begun to heat you can place the chocolate into the bowl. The steam from the  water will heat the bowl enough for the chocolate to melt without burning it. Make sure you stir every now and then to circulate the heat.

Once the chocolate is melted and runny with no lumps you can turn the burner down to low. You can now start spooning the chocolate into the mold. Be careful not to over fill the mold otherwise it won’t have a flat bottom and will have untidy edges once it has set.

When you have finished filling the mold place it in the fridge for about an hour. Depending on what kind of mold you have and its size, the fridge time may vary.

Once the chocolate has set you can remove them from the mold. How cute are they!?

You can present them any way you like. If they are a gift you can put them in a small clear cellophane bag tied at the top with a coloured ribbon, or you could wrap them individually in coloured foil. – Enjoy!!

I used 300g of chocolate which made 20 chocolates (2 molds).

I hope you liked my first DIY – if you have an Easter related DIY I’d love to see it, link me!
