This dress has made me want to take up being a vintage lady full-time. Although the skirt takes up an entire seat on the bus, I love wearing petticoats and swishy vintage-style dresses probably more than any other style of clothing. Plus, basically everyone I interact with compliments me on this dress, which is never a bad thing.
Also, these shoes. They weren't even thrifted. They were free. As in... I found them on the side of the road during our "council collection", where people recycle things they don't want anymore. Now I know some people who would be ashamed by that, but I think that is a ridiculous attitude to have - I just gave them a quick clean, and now I have a brand new pair of (free) shoes, side-of-the-road and everything!

I found a pretty cool Kickstarter project the other day. What with much talk lately about sending humans to live on Mars (through the Mars One project and organisations like NASA), there has been more investigation into practical aspects of living on Mars - like gardening. Sending a bunch of dehydrated food over to Mars would be expensive and impractical (and unhealthy), so if people ever want to live on Mars, then they will be need to be able to make their own food. Making a garden bed using Mars soil, with Mars temperatures, wind and gravity, would be a little difficult, however - so this is where the Astrogarden comes in.
The project is primarily an education and communication project right now, aiming to give information to kids and the public about what would be required to sustain people on Mars. However, it's also an ongoing research project. Check it out on Kickstarter here.
I hope that you're all having a gorgeous day so far!
