Day 255: Breakfast Club

What are good things to have for breakfast? That is the question de jour (my jour) on Meet Me at Mikes' 52 Lists. Here is my answer:

The Slightly-Healthy Brunch Version:
Smashed (love that menu-word) avocado with lemon and goats cheese on sourdough, topped with a poached egg. Or, corn fritters with smashed avocado, beetroot relish, wasabi mayo and a bacon side. All with at least two lattes and good company.

The Culturally Aware Version:
Pho. Vietnamese broth with noodles, fresh herbs, lime, chili and topped with fine cut raw beef that cooks itself in the hot broth. Divineness in a bowl. Doesn't really go with coffee, but I don't do breakfast without, so go the Vietnamese option of coffee served with lots of condensed milk for the authentic immersion. I am physically drooling.

The Everyday:
Two Weetbix, soaked in milk until soft and then zapped for a minute in the microwave. Add a spoon of golden syrup. Yes, it is effectively baby food. But babies don't have at least two brewed white coffees with it, do they?

The Insanely-Bad-For-Me, Regression to Childhood Version:
At least two brewed white coffees with a plate of biscuits or cake. I am ashamed but sometimes this is what I have when I get up in the morning. Ironically it makes me hungry again in about forty-five minutes.

The Night-Shift Version:
Because night-shift warps all ideas of the nature of arbitrary time, the best types of post shift breakfast goes along this line: steak, chips, a fried egg, worchestshire sauce, and beer.

P.S: Went to breakfast after this post and they none of these options. Sorely disappointed!

The Outfit
Tag-in, Tag-out Project in play, with one item each day carried to the next
Shirt (which is a dress, Tag-out): Op-shopped
Skirt: Op-shopped (I'm tagging this out permanently; just can't seem to make it work in my favour—back to the op-shop)
Cuff (Tag-in): Op-shopped
Shoes: Irregular Choice 'Sparkly Cosmo'

Photographer de Jour: Moi

Who wore it better?

  1. I love the blouse.

    I'm hungry for the first version right now and it's 11 pm. Instead I'm eating 3 plain rice cakes. Not quite the same.


    1. It's cruel to talk, write or read about yummy food when rice cakes is all you have. Avocado is the 'good oil' though - couldn't you have a little with them?

  2. Just give me Pancakes, whipped Butter and Canadian Maple Syrup. This would be my Firing Squad last request.

    1. I am not sure what I would have. I would maybe try to eat myself to death before I actually had to face the bullet. It least you wouldn't have to worry about that 'full' feeling for long. Or diabetes my love!

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…
