Day 112: Read All About It

It is weigh-in day again. So quickly. And again there is no movement on the scale. Well, there is the movement from zero to a large number at the speed of light when I first jump on there, but when the little pointer settles down after its shock, it settles down on the same number as last week and the week before. This week, having tempted the fates of the scales overly with a combination of not eating and eating bad stuff, I don't feel the disappointment of the 'same number' as much as the relief of 'at least it is still the same number'. And while I am over the moon about that, I am not so excited to be at the point where I am wearing the clothes I picked out a few weeks ago as those I was determined to fit into this week. They are still snug, to say the least. Oh well, I have pledged to do Michelle Bridge's Twelve Week Challenge with a friend at work (to be further known as Lady D--). The next round starts mid May so I will, to your chagrin, keep you notified.

Poor Jennifer Lawrence. First she trips up the stairs, then she gets the ex-President's name wrong. Do you find gossip magazine information just the most important information in the world? I mean, what could be more important than whether Jennifer Lawrence's hair is better short than long? Or who the most beautiful casts in television are? Or who lost weight and then got fat and then lost weight and got anorexic and then obese and then looked fabulous on the Oscar's Red Carpet? Do you read gossip magazines? They are a bit like car accidents aren't they? Very hard to look away even though you know it is terrible to gawk like that.

Day 279: Entertainment and Wishes

I have brain-freeze from a three hours/three hours/ten hours-during-the-day sleeping pattern over the last three days twenty-four hour periods (that ole chestnut, again) and so even though it is not Sunday, I am getting in early and loosening the clenched up brain cells by cheating on topic ideas with Sunday Social. Their link actually goes up tommorrow so be sure to check back and see what everyone else had to say when Sunday eventually does roll around.

Q: What is currently on your wish list?

A: I need nothing. Nothing. So let's talk about want. I want to be able to find some amazing thrifted pieces on my upcoming (eight sleeps) trip to the States. Luck and fate will have a lot to do with it, but I would be very happy to find some, or all, of the following as well: a chambray shirt, a real bomber jacket (just got one that I had different ideas about when I bought it from SheInside—it's really just a fleece jacket), belts, a vintage leather jacket, more tutus, sumptuous f…

Wear 1: Dropped My Shopping.

Day One of three hundred and sixty-five pictures of Irene (left) and I (right) on the internet. We're using it as a way to develop or realise a fashion style, and as a friendly competition as to who wore it better? Like every journey or quest, this year's project will teach me a little, make me think a bit and lend me some laughs and enjoyment. I hope also to slowly make sure everything in my clothes closet and my shoe closet is utilised: even perhaps the bags and boxes of outrageous, or not, op-shopped (thrifted) items secreted in cupboards and under beds. Other hopes: fewer words (believe it or not), more pictures and time to catch up on unfinished blogs from the last three years!

I had my outfit planned, but as I dressed this morning for work, I, well, chickened out. I lost the cape and replaced it with a black cardigan. I thought my work colleagues would think I looked strange and slightly overdressed. Lesson One: I am not brave in person (posting a silly picture on the in…

Day 348: My Favourite Colour

Who: Melanie at Bag and Beret

What: The Travelling Yellow Skirt Freak Show

When: A while ago (have I told you trying to buy a house keeps getting in my way!)

Where: At, around and in the vicinity of ACCA

Why: Do you even have to ask?

Who Else: B—— for the photos, Melbourne Bike Share for the props (although I did pay for that, and we spent so long riding around getting moving pictures that they charged me again so I am not really sure why I am telling you about them: this isn't a plug, except that they are quite cool!)

What the ?: Sunshine incarnate in the form of a yellow skirt travels the world searching for women, bold and beautiful, who make it their own for a day, or a week and share their own take on its joyous light with everyone out there who thinks that being an exceptional individual with the daring and bravado to walk your own way, strut your own stuff and be your own you is a good thing! That's my take on it, but you can read the full story on the link to the skir…
