Sakura Week

The cherry blossoms are out! sigh.
I have never been to Japan when the Cherry Blossoms are blossoming. I love Cherry Blossoms.  Or as they are known in Japanese... Sakura... they are an omen of good fortune, an emblem of love, affection and a metaphor for the cycle of life.

Although this is Sundayted....I'm using this as a Have A Blossoming Week Starting On Monday Bloglink post! & I'm going to have to find a better name for that...
Start the week off with purpose not a groan.  Oh and ...make your bed straight away

By the way, if you think I'm a rainbow volvano, then you have to check this out!
Not for the faint-hearted though, this woman is wild, fractious and clearly not PC! I love her!
I need this and can get it here.  Isn't it just super cool??
And who wouldn't want to create with this?

Lots more pics after the jump... J

My husband took the pics of me. As you [may] know I take majority of my pics myself using tripod and timer but lately, if we're out and about, my husband has been having fun doing this. I still carry a tripod though, for some reason I feel less self concious having my blog photos taken when the camera is on a tripod! It's like the tripod makes it 'official purposes'!  hahahahaha!!!

your outfit so suits the background. thanks for stopping by dusk. I've been away from the bloggosphere for way toooo long. Been so busy with uni and the bU fashion parade. PLUS, a two very unfortunate things happened to my car. First it broke down and then well basically, as of Monday, I officially don't have a car! ie. written off

Been a bad week but I will pull through all this! Thank you so much for your encouraging comment! It really made my day. xxx

I loveeee cherry blossoms, something so innately calm and stunning about them. Love your uber colourful outfit, I could stare and stare and not tire at all!

I didnt know u had peacocks in any place other than India...good thing to know:-)

I love cherry blossoms - they always remind me of spring. So looks like we are heading to fall and u guys are heading to Spring..

Ur outfit is really pretty and I love how u teamed it with tights and boots. The dress is just the prefect length on you. love the second pic - u look so serene and the third pic since its so dramatic..

i am going to start the next week with purpose..just back from vacation and all charged up!!

daisybabie said...

so pretty! love when the blossoms bloom, takes up the entire tree, and when they fall, it's like a beautiful carpet of petals. *love*

your outfit, chickie, creates a very mid 60s vibe and the boots a very lat 60s vibe. both are stupendously fab!
