Day 300: Hashtag

There are whole bunches of cultural things I need to catch up on with you, but rather than bore you with long-winded details, here are my impressions of three books and two movies that I have finished or seen in the last couple of months played out in Twitter format—not a character more than one-forty.

#hungergames2catchingfire

It is all about Katniss; but it is strange to watch this with one of the only people in the world who hasn't read the book. Can you imagine that?


#thesecretlifeofwaltermitty

A man—increasingly stubbled—chases a girl through his mind, Iceland and Afghanistan (all beautifully shot). But all along, she was where he left her.

#damned by Chuck Palahniuk

Killed by ... can't tell you: a 13yo girl, damned to hell, (re)makes herself powerful with her Breakfast Club buddies. Or does she? What do we control?


#allthatiam by Anna Funder

The best friend and the lover of a Nazi resistance campaigner alternate the telling of their stories of the Hitler resistance. Nobody was listening.


#thecuckooscalling by Robert Galbraith (a.m*.f**.k.a JK Rowling)(* more; ** famously)

There is no point comparing, so I didn't. A slow but entertaining who-dunnit with a denoument that runs, last minute, a little too quickly.


#ps: I made up the hashtags.

  1. I'm loving this outfit.

    As I write this my neighbour from two doors down has come to snow blow my driveway which I believe now has over 7ft (maybe 8 ft?) of snow on each side of it. I'm being buried alive here. Seeing you in these bright colours are as close as I'm going to get to a tropical feeling.

    I haven't read any of the Hunger Games but did watch the first 2 movies.

    I might want to see the Secret Life of Walter Mitty now.

  2. Thanks for linking up for Monday Morning Gossip! Glad to have you :)

    I LOVED Tge Hubger Games trilogy but was disappointed with the first movie. I hear Catching Fire is better but have yet to see it.

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…
