ain't that good news

Last day of 2010! And it was a good 'un. I went into town, relaxed in one of my favourite spots with my notebook, came home and discovered my mum's old typewriter from the 70s and made heart-shaped chocolate cakes. Excellence.

So these shorts again. I can't stop wearing them. They're just too perfect. And yes! My hair is red now. It has been for a few weeks, but I don't think it was totally noticeable in my last outfit post. I'm a little bit in love with it.

I hope everyone has a spectacular new years, whether you're partying hard or chilling even harder.

P.S. I've had Sam Cooke on repeat for the past couple of days and it's been magical.

true directions

Inspiration time. I spent my yesterday watching But I'm a Cheerleader and it was overloaded with style. Hella entertaining but what got me were the barbie dreamhouse vibes, the oversaturated colours, the sweaters and full skirts, the librarian glasses, the old school barrettes and the intense pink and blue palette. Visual feast.

Give it a watch here.

white wine in the sun

Merry boxing day amigos! I hope y'all had yourselves excellent christmases. Or weekends. Or both! Mine was deliciously pleasant - good food, good wine, good company, good air conditioning - that's all you need, really.

Today was equally relaxing - sitting back with my newly acquired Community dvd (after watching the Doctor Who christmas special o' course), a ridiculous amount of chocolate and these boss shorts. I kind of feel like I'm channeling Sloane Peterson? A 39˚C version, anyway.

P.S. Tim Minchin sums up rather wonderfully a typical antipodean christmas...

P.P.S. Apologies for the super sporadic posting that's made up this blog over the past few months. It sucks, but I just haven't had it in me. Hopefully that can be remedied. :)
