Asos...bane of my existence

I decided it was more prudent to grab a couple of bigger items while the discount was on instead of the little sale items I have on my wishlist (false economy? for sure!)

Pleated midi skirt - stripes AND pleats in one

These are a cheap version of the Tony Biancos I want to tide me over in the meantime.

Apples and oranges...

I am thinking about changing my hair...maybe cutting in some layers to giveit more body. But at the same time I want to keep my hair long. It's just so boring and straight (I am aware that some people would love to have dead straight hair!).

I love this girl's hair - was thinking something like this might work for me?

Autumn is doing pretty things around me

The sun is setting when I get home...and it's already only 5 degrees when I go to the gym at 6am

I am awaiting a replacement camera battery charger for my phone - I lost mine. I took some proper shots this morning but just when I went to upload the battery finally died. So I will have to stick with these crappy ones in the meantime!

My attempt at colourblocking
Asos skirt, Zara blouse, Portmans belt, TB nude heels, vintage necklace

Messy bedroom as always.

Asos has a new code....gah!

It worked! Acorns away!

It actually uploaded this time...try no. 53.

Belt up

Obi belt from Asos - I needed more bright belts

Pink belt from Asos

Penny for your acorn...

I don't know what is up with Blogger, but it has taken a dislike to my full body shot (waaaaay judgmental!). It crashes every time I try to upload it.
Meanwhile...this is clearly the best dress ever. Acorns!

Modcloth dress, FC belt, Cotton on Cardi

Red tights - We love colours, TB heels

Pretty in prints

I have caught the print fever...with my cat print skirt and my acorn print dress...

Witchery blazer, Zara t shirt, vintage necklace, Etsy kitty print skirt, We Love Colours tights, Wittner heels

Big Sportsgirl bling ring

Cats galore

I stacked it in our driveway in my new heels....picked myself up then looked around to see if anyone had noticed.

Back at my desk...wasn't long enough. And of course I missed out on the Anzac festivities - the Boy had to go it alone because our hot water broke and I had to wait 6 hours for the plumber. He came home very drunk;)

I consoled myself with these beauties from Asos - $33

Went to see Thor 3d last night - Friends of Couture dress, Zu shoes, Witchery Blazer

Massive Diva bling

Dinner plate size


It was good - no need for 3D though. They didn't utilise the format at all. Decent storyline, elevated by wonderful actors (Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman etc). I gasped out loud when Chris Hemsworth was shirtless. The Boy poked me and said 'I heard that'. Whoops! A girl can't help it:)

His voice reminds me of Heath Ledger - that mostly Aussie accent with a hint of US that Heat had around the time of 10 Things. Wonderful. He is very likeable - warm. I hope we see more of him.

Sydney Town

We are back from our anniversary weekend in Sydney...we ate, we drank, we shopped (a little). We also got incredibly lost trying to drive out of the city centre, but at least we got to see (and drive over) the Harbour Bridge twice (by accident).

As soon as we got there it was vego dim sum (me) and oysters (the Boy)

We went out on Good Friday eve with the Boy's friends...I got drunky. Badly.

Wayne Cooper skirt, Dotti top, FC belt, Jessica Simpson Dany platforms, mismatched black socks

Forever new beret, Modcloth tree necklace, lovisa ring

Dany platforms. I always fall over but I love them

The Boy bested me at Sushi train...I was handicapped by my hangover

Shopping haul: Zara shirt and tshirts, forever new beret, wittner platforms

My anniversary gift that I picked out:)

Zara made my head hurt - way too hungover, couldn't find anything I wanted, it was always in the hands of someone else!

Anniversary dinner at Otto's - Cue dress, new platforms

Dresses with fur collars make me feel russian...

Good thing this dress has room for food belly

Shiny shoes

Car driving outfit - new Zara tshirt (great value at $26)

Beret love

Stopped at Lee & Me in Wollongong for lunch - yum! Sweetcorn and chickpea fritters

The Boy's pastrami sandwich

I love graffiti

Casual like a sunday morning

Thankfully today is a half day - so I couldn't be bothered getting dressed up for work. My top half is therefore wearing gym clothes, in preparation for a tough session after work.

Just Jeans jacket (gift from the Boy), Nudie jeans, TB boots, Supre top

Hair pretty much unbrushed

My cat print skirt from Etsy arrived - the print is so cute!

The tripod arrived so my photos will hopefully improve - I still have no idea to increase the size though. Not sure if it's a problem with the camera, iphoto, or blogger.

And in even better news...I got my Zara leopard print blazer...I couldn't wait until I get to Sydney Saturday, just in case it was sold out. So when it popped back on the UK site, the lovely Briony from BrionybuysUK let me know and she snapped it up for me straightaway.

Powerless to resist...

Damn you Asos....sigh.

Maxi cardi

Orange belt

Wide tan belt

Purple cami

Pastel pretty

Had a day working from home yesterday, woke today to find I had the sorest throat. Is this the cold I already had circling around and coming back, or is it a new mutated one? Not sure - all I know is that I cannot wait for the weekend. I almost wish we weren't going to Sydney so I could just laze around at home.

My new tripod arrived - now I just have to get better with the camera! Not sure how to make the pictures's all a mystery to me.

New $10 supre maxi skirt, Sportsgirl blouse, Friends of Couture snowflake cardi

I love me a big skirt

This cardi was such a bargain at $15

Obligatory bathroom shot - me in Forever new cape at the movies (we saw Paul - 3.5 stars)

Stoli hogging the chair while I work from home
