Goodmorning 20, will you treat me well this year?

Today I pretty much wasted the day and just laid back... took photos , did some quality reading and research nothing productive. Danced my way through lunch whilst cooking 2 minute noodles. Don't you love having the whole house to you and it's dead silent. It was fun.

Here's what went down before dinner with my fam bam!

wearing: Vintage gold shoes, hat, a-line skirt and cardigan and jay jay's cotton tshirt. Chandelier earrings all from Justine.

The party however, takes place this weekend.
Any ideas how to celebrate my new found maturity?

One day away

Responsibility is looming.

I am just a day away from turning 20 and I don't think I have achieved anything significant so far.

What's the big deal anyways? It's a number and I am far from claiming my adolescent years were in essence when "the good times rolled". I don't want to grow up but I learnt that is inevitable haha.

The reason why I haven't blogged in more than a week, I broke my dear old camera, Canon. But as I am known to "live and let live" I will buy a meaner, sexier, well equipped SLR haha and in addition my internet has exceeded it's limit. But don't worry in a few days my internet will be up and running. I will get back to all of you as soon as possible.

will be replaced hopefully by this bad boy

Sorry about the lame quotations I'm happy!

The weather in Sydney has been especially windy today. It has been raining for the past 3 days, thus having no luck with outfit posts! Sorry guys.

Strange fact if you wanted live in Australia- You can experience summer, winter and monsoon all in one day :D Bang for you Buck... or not.

I am also working on my DIY's but Uni has taken priority.

So how is your week coming along? Tomorrow I have a presentation due concerning Data Analysis and Graphs. I for one, hated absolutely cringed at the thought of numbers. Alas! I have to stick with it and get my degree.

What was your favourite subject at school?

Comments make my heart skip a beat!

I received comments from our very own Susie Bubble and Stylish Wanderer... *Jumps for Joy!!*
I know I am getting ahead of myself (its only been 4 days!) but i just want to thank everyone who visits my blog and especially those who comment.


It is getting especially cold. I am definitely not used to Winter considering I spent most of my life living with my dad in India. The chilly winter months are disastrous. I am over exaggerating. Regardless my humble body can only take so much.


I need to stock up! Coats, socks, boots, Jackets you name it. you suggest it.
I just might NEED it!

rabbit on the run

I am currently working on some DIY projects so fingers crossed I am committed and I will post some of it here. I also start University next week and I am dreading the enormous load of assignments, presentations and my impending doom when faced with exams.

i'll try me hearty best to keep you guys up to date but until then take care my lovelies!


Edit: THAT'S CHIC dropped by too! This is insane :D

Opening Ceremony

Opening Ceremony has finally ventured onto the world wide web!

I absolutely love their avant garde pieces and especially how incandescently unique each piece is laboriously crafted. If I had that kind of money... ah if only I had that kind of money.

Yayoi Kusuma

Yayoi Kusuma inspired our attempt at using an onverload of polka dots in my last post which went wrong btw. You should really check out her website. Her artwork is amazing!!

Here are a couple of pictures :) and if you are in Sydney check her out at MCA

Polka dots, the trademark of “Kusama Happening”. Red, green and yellow polka dots can be the circles representing the earth, the sun, or the moon. Their shapes and what they signify do not really matter. I paint polka dots on the bodies of people, and with those polka dots, the people will self-obliterate and return to the nature of the universe. An excerpt from “Infinity Nets”, Kusama Yayoi Autobiography

Maybe some real fashion by these fashionistas might cheer you up!


I also wore my great lola's (lola=grand mother in tagalog) ring today.

Check the beast out

First attempt at a "photo shoot"
