saturday rituals

cheerio museli Happy Saturday! Here is last week's – well, weekend, really – Saturday breakfast ritual feed: I had the muesli and John had beans at Cheerio in Richmond. From memory, the muesli had green tea and figs, and maple syrup... and it was even better than I hoped it would be.

Also, I want to say hello to my new readers! Is there anything you want to ask? Anything you'd like me to post about? I have a list of posts that I want to do but I'd love to hear your thoughts. Just ask me in the comments. Let's get to know each a bit more! cheerio latte cheerio beans sauce

I recently discovered your blog and I absolutely LOVE it! I had a question for you, if you don't mind. I want to start dressing more vintage style, but no one really dresses that way where I live so I'm afraid I'll get too many looks. How do you go about dressing against the norm yet carrying yourself with such confidence? You look lovely by the way, I adore each and every single one of your outfits <3 x

I'd really love to know what you do for a day job. Do you get to wear all your lovely vintage pieces at this job?

Hi Esme, I'm not a new reader but if it is not to personal, I'd also like to know about your work and what an average day for you is like. Blame it on coming to the end of my uni course but lately I've had a growing interest in understanding what people are doing in their lives and what attracted them to those choices. Anyway, that is just if it is not too invasive. Otherwise your content is alway beautiful. I really like reading about beauty product reviews, hairstyles and just general tips/advice. :) x

Lidia: oh, yes! Did I ever post that? I should, really, lovely blogger!

Anonymous: excellent question! I think because I've always dressed differently since my early teens (blame it on finding punk music) I am used to not looking like everyone else. I always admired people with their own style, even if it wasn't something I'd want to wear myself, and have worked on finding what I do like over the years... I think this needs a special post to answer, and I'd love to hear other readers thoughts, too! I just wear what I like to, what is comfortable and what I enjoy, and most people respond well to that – at least the ones that matter do. So hold your head high! :D

Ursula: I work part time for a not for profit, with vintage clothing. When I started I wore my vintage but it was far too cold this winter! We shivered in our messy office wearing layers of jumpers and heavy coats and gloves and my hands were still too frozen stiff to use the computer. Also my clothes and stockings were getting caught and snagged all the time, so now if it is warm enough I might wear my 1950s cotton dresses but I have to be so careful :)

Sarah: of course! I saw this comment after I responded to the one above, but I want to do a day-in-my-life on an average week day (I work at the NFP Monday-Thursday) but I was a bit unsure, thought it might be a bit boring! Ok, I'll do it this coming week :) And the tips and advice thing is in the works! Thanks for the awesome feedback x

I love your blog having very recently found it. But I wonder if perhaps you could update your 'about' bio page? I would love to know more about why you moved to Australia and whatever you want to say about yourself.

esme and the laneway said...

Nicole: good idea :) it has been on my to-do lost for aaaages (along with a blog re-design etc) but I'll get on to it very soon.

your muesli looks delicious :)

Mabel said...

I would like to know what you told your stylist to do to your hair to make it blond? I want to go blond this summer, and it's going to need to be bleached (I'm going to be going to a salon, I'd never do it myself). How do you know what is the right shade to choose? My hair is naturally light brown/dark blond, so I know I can pull it off. But how to choose a shade?? So many questions :)

Mabel: well I am a hairdresser's nightmare because I do all my blonding myself! Glad to hear you won't do that though :) I think your stylist will be better able to advise what will suit you, and also what do you want it to be like? How blonde, or white? I'd recommend looking at lots of their samples and being very firm, and being prepared to not necessarily getting the spot on colours first time round. Good luck, it'll be so much fun to be blonde! :D

Hi, as you are from London originally I would be really interested in how the first time for you in australia been, the big differences and changes you had to make. also how do you do it with your friends and family left behind in England.
I am from Berlin and my boyfriend is in Australia, we met in Sweden and it was a longdistancerelationship from the very beginning but with sweden and germany not as far as now germany australia.
I do want to finish uni first before I make the big step of moving to Melbourne and before that there will be quite a few visits there.
But I am so nervous and interested in all the differences and if there might wait a cultural shock for me.
I am now 23, so almost the age you were when you moved.
by the way, I found you over pony and there I saw that you're european from the beginning.
by the way, as you said you're going to get married, how did the visa stuff go for you? you, see, many, many questions :)
oh, and why don't you have an archive or a link system? would be so much easier to find informations and you might not have to answer the same questions over and over again :)
Greetings from Berlin!

Katie Frank: I hope you are better now! :)

I would really love to see you do a vlog/video closet tour of your current closet! I love watching to see how people organize/store their clothing.

Blessings,
Rebecca

Hi Esme! I discovered your blog just this week, and I absolutely love it (and you!). I'm amazed by all of your different hair styles and colours - especially the "sheer look" you have now. I am a blonde and I have wondered about getting at sort of tint of colour in my hair. It would be awsome if you could say something about what you tell your hair dresser to do to get it like that, or maybe you can do it yourself? Hugs from Norway :)

esme and the laneway said...

Lillan Mo Andreassen: hi! I do it myself, using a tiny dot of Paint Box colours mixed in with lots of conditioner. It fades really, really quickly, though – even without washing!

Rebecca Ann: that's an awesome idea! I'll do it! x
