Daily outfit: Band practice

This is from two weeks ago, when I had band practice ALL DAY. At lunchtime I hula-hooped.

Can you tell that I'm a little bit tired?

Student jobs

Last week I was paid $26 to play a computer "game" at Uni for forty minutes.

Have you had any interesting money-making jobs?

Hair cut!

On Friday I had my hair cut! What an exciting event.

Have already attempted the wash and re-style post hairdressers, and my conclusion is... Yay!

Le weekend

Have spent the weekend working, marching and perving on bikes. I have so much to blog about and am quite, quite excited to do so! Now, just to find the time. I leave in 12 days!

Daily outfit: The Who

As previously mentioned, Thursday night was The Who. With my dad. Very cool.

When I got home I tried to document my outfit via handstand. I think the attempts would make a nice gif cartoon.


TA DA! Pretty darn pleased with myself.

Realised that Pete Townshend looks like my French Professor at uni:

Que penses-tu? What do you think?

Cat tetris

I love my cat.

I admire her economy of space and dedication to the game, "How small can you get?"

I will miss her!

Daily outfit: the details

Further to yesterday's post, here are some outfit details...

Argh! Pirate stockings

Ridiculous 18th century-esque op-shopped shoesies

Makeup: bright green eyeliner and red lips. 'Scuse the mug.

Daily outfit: Variations on a theme

Look at me! I'm wearing pants!

Sans jacket. Can't touch this

Then this is what happens when you wake up too early for a painful dentist experience.

At least I am wearing pirate stockings

In other news, my entire mouth area is numb thanks to some anaesthetic. I thought I would make myself feel better by putting on some lipstick but I can't tell where my lips are and now I look even worse than before (no photo)

Tonight? The Who!

Sorry if this is too smutty a post! As a freelance physicist I found it gold.

Daily outfit: St Patrick's day

Do you like the way my legs blend into the couch?

I met a friend for a comedy date and enjoyed some hot chocolate! Did you get up to any mischief?

The boyfriend taking your picture while walking home drunk and...

..in the rain in front of a hibiscus tree? Priceless.

Friday night comedy with the ladies. A bit warm for these gloves, but I think they're "fierce"

In the mail

Look at what found its way to my doorstep a few days ago!

A giant sack, all the way from the UK. Inside? A big box from the Folio Society containing a birthday treat that I will probably not receive till I get home from Paris (my birthday is in September....)

Isn't this the coolest packaging to come home to?

The boyfriend

Apologies for not introducing the boyfriend earlier. Here is a photo of him in his banana tie, unearthed while sorting through his heaving wardrobe. He's a monkey, in case you didn't get the allusion.

Attention: clowns ahead

Mom has been on a bit of a cleaning bent lately, and while working through the hats basket found this. I'm not quite sure where it came from nor what I should do with it....

Keep? Chuck? Burn?

Moving on

Yesterday my boyfriend moved into a cosy place in the city. To celebrate, on Tuesday night we gorged ourselves at a Chinese restaurant then headed back to his family home for cocktails and dancing with the dog.

What a happy camper.

Check out the amazing kitschness I found!

And with that, I pack a bag for the ride over to toast the new house in the city!

Le visa

I've been working myself into a sweat today organising my visa application. I'm moving to France in a month (pending application approval) ! There is something terrifying about sending away your passport in the post.

Kings of Leon concert tonight; off to drink vodka, get dressed and catch the bus

When I come home...

When I come home from work I usually find my bed neatly made and a little post-it note from my boyfriend on the pillow.

The other day I found this.......

That's my teddybear just hanging out in some pyjamas and matching bear slippers.

Glass Percussion Project, v 2.0

Saturday night we returned to the scene of the crime: Adelaide Festival Centre.

There were lots of people taking photographs of the hour-long performance.

Three percussionists scraped and hammered and struck a multitude of blue glassworks to make music.

I dressed appropriately:

And then we saw some cats. Urban cats, great!

For my introductory post on this project, click here.

Art show

Last Thursday night I rode my bike in a very short skirt (and consequently flashed all of town) to a swanky hotel in the CBD where my friend was hosting his own art show. As a painter, his style is usually photorealist but he has been developing his own look over the years.

The aforementioned miniskirt. Posing with the artist and his painting of me (present in three of his shows so far, and yet still nobody has bought me...) Outfit: generally secondhand.

In reality we are not art connoisseurs but simply wished to support our friend (and raid the free wine!)

Daily outfit: cool evening

Today it FINALLY RAINED! To celebrate I walked home with the boyfriend in the cool (Autumn!) air.

Later, I had band practice to attend, and didn't want to be cold.

Yes, I am wearing a bowtie and a ridiculous face.

Daily outfit: Monday dinner

Monday night dinner with the girls in Chinatown.

Oh, I'm a happy camper. No really, I am!

Daily outfit: new dress!

Trying out new photo locations - can you tell where I'm hiding?
A sunny Thursday called for a debuting of this new dress, which was marked down to a ridiculous $20. Although not my usual style (halterneck, keyhole, print) I quite like it and it sure put me in a good mood riding along in the sunshine with my skirt fluttering in the breeze.

My (female) neighbour looks like the Kaiser.

Gifts from the boyfriend's mother

The boyfriend's mother is an avid shopper and is often coming home with goodies for her two children, and increasingly for me too! What's rejected by her daughter usually finds its way to me, something that I'm not complaining about.

Coral bridesmaid's dress? Yes please!

Rejected by its intended owner. I snaffled it up with glee and wore it to a Valentine's dance. Excuse the cheeky squirrel face of intoxication.

I was thoroughly spoiled by the boyfriend's family for Christmas and received my own stocking of treats as well as this beautiful vintage number:

It was taken out for a spin in its spiritual home, the airport.

So thank you K for all the wonderful additions to my wardrobe, most recently a polka dot bow belt!
