Miss Jerry Hall

Speaking of books, I flicked through Lauren Conrad: Style the other day in Dymocks and come pay-day, it shall be mine.

Having hair done tomorrow...

Happiness is a warm Zuel

Wow, I was in such a down mood yesterday! Working much harder today to believe in myself, and so far it's a success. Had a really chilled night in last night, some red wine, some Glee = perfect! Snuggles with the bf helped a lot too, I'm sure.

Tonight will be more of the same, and then Friday night we're heading to the country for a 30th birthday, with a rock star theme. I am going as Cyndi Lauper...funny cos when I was 12 years old, I also dressed up as Cyndi for our primary school fancy dress ball :)

Dropped into General Pants the other day and saw this gorgeous, relaxed, leopard print tank designed by Jess Hart (neon hart), and I also really like the way she's rocking the double leopard:

Am also really loving this skirt by Faith 21, but not sure if it's too bulky?

It's 25 degrees here in Melbourne today - very exciting!! I have heaps to look forward to at the moment as well - this weekend in the country, next weekend we're staying at his family property for a romantical time away (it's in Hurstbridge, so near some wineries), then a week's grace before it's time for Perth! Can't wait to see my hometown friends, go sailing on Dad's new boat, go shopping with Mum, and see my gorgeous friend Kate get married.

This is me

This is from the recent Yohji Yamamoto show - I want this t-shirt!

Have been rather hard on myself lately, my stomach has been playing up a lot and so I've been really bloated and feeling so fat....I sometimes feel like I have a pretty face, but my body is this mis-shapen lump. Grr - have to also remember that is most likely hormones talking, and my oft-poor-body-image, and I need to try and be positive.

Self-acceptance is so important, and it's something I have to work on most days. But my goal is to accept me for me, and to focus on the positives that I do have rather than unobtainable perfection.

Have started making better food choices as of yesterday, after not really thinking about it for a few months. I also went to the gym, which for me is to keep active rather than killing myself to be skinny. (Meh, it's still boring, but I do like the endorfins afterwards).

Anyway - onward & upward! My holiday in Perth is coming up soon, and I'm very excited.

Birthday surprises

So yesterday was my birthday - and it ended up being a really nice day, even if I did have to work! I was serenaded by the office (and blushed a lot), and treated to a yummy flourless orange cake, plus had so many messages and calls from friends, it was so nice. In the evening, the BF and I went out for a low key dinner and to see the movie "The Legend of the Guardians", which was super cute.

The big surprise on Friday night was dinner at Little Press, and a trip to the Arts Centre to see this awesome ballet called "Come, Been and Gone", which was to the music of David Bowie, Iggy Pop, The Velvet Underground and Kraftwerk.

He's such a good listener - I had been flicking through the program for the Melbourne Festival a little while ago and lamenting that I couldn't afford tickets to the ballet. Good work :) I also was given a beautiful pair of earrings from Samantha Wills, so am feeling very lucky and spoiled.

The only downside has been the past few days I have been feeling sick on and off. Nausea, dizziness, sore upper back, upset stomach, grr. It's not consistant though, so I don't know if it's this stomach bug that's going around or what. Of course my biggest paranoia is always "what if I'm pregnant?", but considering I get sick pretty easily, plus have stomach issues anyway, I'm sure that really is me being paranoid.

Off to acupuncture tonight - which I love, as it's so relaxing! Ohhh, just looked out the window and it's grey/black as far as the eye can see - what happened to yesterday's sunshine?

Oh and I found a dress for the wedding! It's a gorgeous, drapey, black & white abstract print, silk satin dress by Charlie Brown. It's the perfect weight and style, so I was so excited to find it my first shopping expedition for the event. Hurrah!

Zuela Zuela Zuela, does Prada Prada Prada!

I have always been more of a Miu Miu girl, but oh emmm geeee, I freaking loved the Prada SS 2011 Collection. How gorgeous is this dress, in particular? Swoon!

Off for an early birthday celebration with my fantastic boyfriend tonight - I am to meet him in Fed Square after work, and that's all I know! He's pretty great at doing a surprise - I on the other hand, get so excited I almost always spill the beans right away :)

Hope everyone has a brilliant weekend and we get a little bit more of that Melbourne sunshine. xoxo

p.s. - speaking of "xoxo" I haven't even seen most of Gossip Girl S3 yet, but am simply hanging out for S4 in Paris. Yay!

Sleepy in the sunshine

Trawling through the interwebs this morning, and found some outfit inspiration for Spring (ok the lady in the second photo has gone a little heavy on the fake tan, but I love her stripy top/blush jacket combo)

(Oh, these pics are both from "They all hate us" btw)

It's been a fabulous spring weekend in Melbourne, and we've switched to daylight savings as of Sunday...it's so lovely to have the light, but I must admit to having a very restless night's sleep last night, so have been dragging myself around all day so far, even with a huge coffee to start the day. Oh well, I shall adjust soon.

Still looking for a dress for the november wedding, but have finally made a decision on my hair (I know you were just hanging by tenterhooks!). Have decided not to get a fringe this time, as I so often do and with the warmer weather it could get annoying. I am going to grow my hair just a little longer and go with an Olivia Palermo/Lauren Conrad style.

Ohhhh, have become totally addicted to the Kardashians btw - think I must have needed some more reality to fill my Hills/City void.
