Whimsy


Remember this dress?


Well today I got bored and changed it into a skirt.



And I think it's 200% better this way!
So happy with how it turned out. The top part of the dress still looks quite cute over a plain black dress too! Score.

I also made some gingerbread as an attempt to get into the spirit of the silly season.
It kinda worked...
...And also made me feel like a beached whale because I kept eating the dough. And the icing... and then the biscuits. Oops.
BUT I have been super duper healthy with my eating this week so yay!

The Best Thing Ever





The title is probably a bit of an overstatement. BUT.
It really is one damn cool piece of clothing. Oh god. I cant believe I resisted buying it for nearly a week. It is definitely a MUST HAVE in my wardrobe. I love big ridiculously drapey things.

Perfect.

For Sale

On eBay I'm selling some brand new Betts shoes. They're grey (faux) suede and really cute! I've never worn them and they're current season stock.

Counting


So I've jumped back on the extreme fitness bandwagon. I tried on a skirt that fit me 6 months ago on Sat night, and it was too tight. I got it on, but I couldnt sit down in it.
Woe.

Hello wake up call.
I mean it makes no sense because I go to the gym 3 to 5 times a week. But obviously I'm not doing something right. Hmm. I know not to keep doing the same thing all the time, and that you should do weights and then cardio in your workout. But still.

I have decided to start using calorieking.com.au again as it helped me lose 7kgs last time. I would like to be back under 60kgs please! I only need to lose about 4-5kgs to do it but eeeeeek, its gonna take some will power me thinks.

I hate cardio.
Sigh.

If anyone has any tips or hints (exercise or food related) please send them my way!

City mission on Sat night.
This is what I wore... Nothing too exciting! Im in dire need of new clothes buuuuuut rego for car + other lame adult expenses + 21st + USA trip come first!


I wore the Ladakh bolero again, ha. Its just so much fun to wear!
Skirt // SG
Shoes // Mimi Loves Jimi

We only ended up going to Century Bar and Star Bar before we had to turn around and come home again because of the crapola gap in trains back to where we live. Boo! Next time we'll be prepared and be on the 4:45am train instead of the 1:45am! We were having sooooo much fun too, sucked to leave.
(in all honestly though, Star Bar was exactly like my fave club up here but bigger, and was still sick fun! Free entry is always a bonus too)

Then yesterday it was J and I's 6 month anniversary (not a massive milestone, I know, but we like to celebrate everything, no matter how little :) )
He got me this pandora:

And we went out to dinner at an awesome restaurant called Rojo Rocket. Its mexican based cuisine and the atmosphere is 'badass' as one of J's mates put it. Haha. It was amazing though! The food and cocktails were lovely.

I also had today off work, because where I work we're given a day off for Melbourne cup (weird as we're not in Victoria? Anyway I'm not complaining!) and we can either take that day off or up to a month after have whatever day off we want. So I've had a lovely relaxing 3 day weekend which has been probably the best weekend I've had in ages. Drinking, eating + dancing with good company! To top it off the weather was amazing Sat + Sun so yay!

Sub Zero Bolero

Went out to dinner last night to kick off my bestie's birthday weekend (theyre twins)
We had Thai, which was a bit of a disaster! Anywho, here is zee outfit...

I took my Ladakh 'Sub Zero Bolero' for a spin.
Bad angle buuuuuuuut you get the general idea. Boo to my bum looking a tad wide!

Skirt // Sunny Girl (it has pockets. Love!)
Top // Cotton On
Wallet // SG
Accessories // T&Co, Lovisa, Diva



Shoes // Zomp
Nails // SG White (I'm onto my second bottle!) and SG Carribean

Tonight we're continuing the festivities by going out in the city (which is what we call Sydney around these parts). It'll only be my second time going out down there and I'm hoping it'll be better than last time!
Fingers crossed.
Hope youre all having wonderful weekends!
xx

Ahhhh been SO MIA lately.
Apologies.
Anywho.
I have been working 10 hour days (yay...) and in that time somehow managed to move my room around and re-organise my wardrobe. Cheering.

It once was a mess of too many clothes (sometimes 2 items hung on one hanger. BAD! And also things just randomly shoved in my closed instead of being folded nicely.)

And now, with the rearrangement of my bed etc I now have soooooo much room to stand and stare at my shoes/clothes rack which is lots of fun. I know. It's actually quite sad really but I do love my clothes a little more than I should (dont we all? I'll just tell myself that so I feel better about myself).

SO. Pictures.

Shoes all neat and such.

Lots of room for prancing about in various outfits.
Are we all loving the jungle outside my room? I dont. Theres about 50 00000000 spiders out there.

Behold the new bed arrangement (as FF would say)

AND...

WAIT FOR IT...

NEW SHOES. AH. LOVEEEEEE. And yes I know what youre thinking 'Oh you tool arent they like your other ones?' to you I say, no, theyre about 1000 times more awesomer and more comfy and I heart them HEEEAPS.
Mimi Loves Jimi from General Pants. My mother went halves with me for them too! Cue more cheering.

Then on Saturday night J and I went to see Lior because he is J's fave singer and I wanted to surprise him for our 6 month anniversary.

We found a bar with $3 drinks and got a bit silly.


New 'LOVE' ring from Lovisa

I think thats J's 'i'm holding the camera and concentrating and therefore cannot smile' face. haaa

Was a great night :)

This






Desperately seeking outfit inspiration for this Sat night when J and I go to a concert in Sydney.
Hmm
Meanwhile... 21st birthday celebration plans are coming together and I'm getting extremely excited.
I was never going to have a party but now I think I'll regret it if I dont.
Theme + potential location have been decided! Along with outfit. Haha.
Yes.
