Day 154: Is It Actually Legal To Diet On Holidays?

Things I am doing for my 25 F(or) 25 this week are: sweating a lot, playing badminton on the lawn nearly every day, swimming, fighting V—— off in the pool (la la la la la la), carrot and passion fruit shot in the morning, stocking up on vitamin D, playing pool, drinking lots of water.

Things I am doing against my 25 F(or) 25 this week are: cocktails, pastries, carbohydrates, lazinesses, cakes, chocolate, biscuits, fried foods, no probiotics, getting pulled up the stairs by holding onto the back of V——'s shorts, losing hope.

The Outfit
Bathers: Black Milk
Skirt: Op-shopped
Thongs/flip-flops: Havaianas

The Holiday Photo

Cocktail: Classic Margarita, Tongkah Tin Syndicate, tequila, triple sec, lime juice

  1. I love that skull top! And no, it is illegal to do anything circumspect on a holiday.

  2. I'm coveting your Havaianas. I can't bring myself to buy a pair because it seems un-Australian to buy Braziliam thongs. They upped the ante when they bought out Missoni Havaianas, but fortunately they sold out in about two seconds, so the temptation was removed before I even knew it existed.

    Not sure which is worse now - coveting vs being un-Australian. Only the former makes it into the bible, right up there in the 10 commandments.

    1. You'll only covet as long as you don't have so purchasing them will negate the naughtiness of coveting. The un-Australianess will pass but then at least you won't be doing anything the bible says you oughtn't. Problem solved :)

  3. Oh, love that top. And you list of "no-no's" is sooooo delightful. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday!

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…
