Day 216: QandA Isn't a Girl's Name

I'm being sociable for Sunday again. What would your answers be?

Q: What are 3 items you can’t live without on a daily basis (water, food, shelter, and clothes don’t count)
A: I can't live without seeing Lollii come out from under the bed at least once. But I often have to. At the moment, unfortunately, I can't live without losing at least fifteen Candy Crush lives a day. And I can't live without coffee. I don't think it is in any of the food groups as such, is it?

Q: What is your all time favorite book? Why?
A: I am physically unable to choose one of anything. I never buy one pair of shoes, never borrow only one book from a library or one movie from the video store. So there is no way in the universe for me to choose a single all time favourite book. But there is something that speaks without refute—numbers. I have read the Harry Potter series four times through. And I will read it all again. It says something. Why? It's an engaging, captivating, well written and plotted series. It gets under your skin.

Q: What is something you’d like to accomplish before the end of 2013?
A: I'd like to have caught up to be on the same day as my blog, eventually! Cannot believe how hard it has been to try and catch up. I would like to have worked out where the blog will go from here. And, in the interest of not having to commute for hours to work as the gossiping threats suggest, I seriously, seriously need to work out and apply to do my PhD. Oh God ...

Q: If you could go back and relive any year of your life which year would it be?
A: Maybe 2010. It was not a good year. I would like to make some different decisions.

Q: What do you wish people knew about you without you having to tell them?
A: I just need space. Simply do, and it doesn't mean anything. I just have to recharge.

The Outfit
Dress: Op-shopped
Chinese Bra: Hilltop Tribe Stall in Southern China
Cardigan: Op-shopped
Tights: Op-shopped

Who wore it better?

Linky today with:

Sunday Social



  1. Coffee is made from coffee beans, beans are vegetables, hence coffee is a form of vegetable juice and should be consumed daily for optimum health.

  2. It would be 1966 for me. The Saints One and only Flag.

  3. When I first read the question "If you could go back and relive any year of your life which year would it be?" 2010 popped in my mind. then I read on and see that it's the same for you.

    Lets get together and compare notes on that!


  4. [Now that I am on a proper computer]
    Q: What are 3 items you can’t live without on a daily basis - tea, my ipod, my bed.

    Q: What is your all time favorite book? Why? - I wish I could say it's some novel by Jean-Paul Satre, but I think I'm going to have to go with "The Places That Scare You" by Pema Chodron because it explains so much about life.

    Q: What is something you’d like to accomplish before the end of 2013? - lose 10 kilos. It's probably too much, but it would be nice to be able to think "I need to put on some weight".

    Q: If you could go back and relive any year of your life which year would it be? I gonna say 1994, but only because I'm safe in the knowledge that I can't actually go back. The problem is, if I went back there's no guarantee that I would end up back where I am now.

    Q: What do you wish people knew about you without you having to tell them? That they don't need to freak out about the medical tape on my neck and they can ask me about it if they want to.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I love your feedback and comments. I read them all lovingly and try to respond to as many as I can. At the very least I go over and see where you have come from. Love it!

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…
