Getting in with it

Still dog tired, terrified by the prospect of starting work on Monday. And still no Internet, Telstra is hopeless.

Food truck day in Victoria Square...there was a 40 minute wait on tacos, but I ran into a friend who had already waited 30 minutes and had to go back to work= free tacos with a 5 minute wait!

Settling for exhaustion

I haven't disappeared off the face of the earth! Just made the big move to Adelaide, it's been a huge couple of weeks...

Apartment in melbourne, so huge!

People must do this all the time..

High tea at the Westin- sparkly red velvet mini cake


China Bar with a hangover- bad idea. We could barely eat anything...

Ouch! From doing the Madison at Retro

Colour Run fun!

Pre run:)

Post run. So doing this again in Adelaide!

Messy me

My legs look like a rainbow icecream

Lunch after at Fonda Mexican

Long drive to Adelaide...

My new city pad!


Priorities- I don't have a wardrobe but I did buy fairy lights, flamingoes and fake lawn. I need more kitschy 50s goodness!!

Moving on Up

2 days until the big move - I of course celebrated by getting mucho drunk on friday night with my workmate. She can so handle her liquor better than me. Embarrassing! I do remember crashing someone's engagement party at a pub. Whoops! I think I was excited about the balloons.

So as my punishment we packed the rest of the weekend.....and also saw Argo (loved!).

Bardot blazer


Touchy feely wall at the Bended Elbow

Good outdoor area

Asos randomly sent me sequin knicker an 8 (I'm a 12)

Packing.....all these are books! I have thousands....

My shorts for the colour run in Melbourne on sunday

Old trusty Dorothy Perkins dress and Alannah Hill cardi

And yet again my dirty hair looks better than it does when clean

Wonder Why

This is what I was faced with this morning...why oh why can I not perform double unders? It means three times as many singles!

It's only just over a week now until I move to Adelaide. I have the house all sorted (city pad!!! Wooooohoooo!). The job is sorted. Now to get myself sorted.

Mission Achieved

So the weekend in Adelaide turned into a mission to Find Me A House....and I did! I applied for one on Friday, got my heart broken yesterday when the owner turned me down because of my cats...and then the lovely real estate agent convinced him to relent! So I will be living in a little bluestone cottage in the heart of Adelaide.With an original 1950s kitchen and bathroom (no more dishwasher - sob!) :)

And a macaroon store just around the corner - dangerous!

Got stuck in pageant traffic (was such a lovely sunny Radelaide day)

Kate's kitty Jaspy thought I was her and slept on me

Melbourne graffitti

Went out to Baby Pizza - yum. Zara top and F New skirt

Fashions in a Field....

This year marks the first time I have gotten involved in Melbourne Cup and I must admit it has been fun. Course it helped that I went with an awesome bunch of people to Derby Day, that I won $300, and that it lightened the mood at work yesterday. Of course I was the only person wearing a hat....

Hat - Catarzi for Asos plus Peacock clip from Etsy
Famous! Lol.

Asos dress, Zara sandals
