Currently Wearing… Sally Hansen’s Pixel Pretty

Loving this teal nail polish by Sally Hansen. A little glitter, a little sheen. Inspired to wear teal clothes too!

Peachy

Peachy vibes today!  I am wearing my new “Life’s a Peach” undies from MeUndies. These were a gift from a close friend who lives overseas! There are a few of us girls, travel buddies, that are nicknamed ‘The Peaches’ so this gift was so appropriate! We were ordering peach flavoured alcoholic mixers back in Vietnam, January, 2009 and the waitress was saying bitch instead of peach. So funny, to say, hello, another bitch please! So The Peaches were born.

I’m panda peach, and there’s puppy peach, kitty peach and monkey peach. So inspired by my peach knickers here’s a mood board all about peach fashion and beauty!

Stars Upon Stars

I’m back! Not quite Polyvore, but Fashmates is pretty much the exact same interface and concept. So here is my first Fashmates set. Tomorrow my work is having a funky Friday fundraiser, where we get to dress funky. But I am going out after work, so my funkiness needs to be toned down enough to be seen in public.

So i am wearing a number of items that are black with white stars, but most can be taken off so I can be a person who doesn’t get weird stares while in an Indian restaurant.

So here’s my first set inspired by tomorrow’s outfit!

Liking, Loathing, Noticing – September 2018

Liking: One week to holidays! Yumi’s Hummus – so good on Pita bread, Beach walks around the headlands, proper sleep ins where I am not woken up by my partner, my cat or my brain…

Loathing: Not getting my weekend sleep ins, I mean seriously why I am awake on Sunday morning at 6am? Realising that the closure of Polyvore meant that all my blog posts that were posted from Polyvore are missing their images, making my blog look so sad. Appalled that they closed the site and app with NO NOTICE, over 20 million uses lost everything. I myself had over 100 polyvore sets. Gone forever!

Noticing: We have a bunny in the backyard! He(?) is so cute. A little brown one that eats the grass. I think I will call him Barry. Barry the bunny. I can’t believe it’s been a year since I was in South America! It was such an epic month. Today a year ago I was having a 17 course degustation menu at Central restaurant in Lima! My social media and website preferences come and go. Sites and apps I used a lot are now sitting idle. Instagram has definitely stood the test of time and is still my favourite social media platform! I may need to look into a Polyvore fashion flat lay alternative…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Scarf-a-thon – 72 and We’re Done!

The final scarves! I have worn every scarf I own, except for 3 I’m getting rid of and one I will be travelling with for a month, so it will get worn a lot while I’m away.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This geometric print rarely gets worn. The print is of flowers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A present one birthday, thin and silky.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another Kmart number, orange and blue.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My mum bought this is New Zealand during Scarf-a-thon. So it had to get worn in the challenge!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A really old birthday gift, navy and pink knit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I bought this from Accessorise in Vancouver in 2010.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A classic Kmart animal print that works as a neutral. Hence why I took it to South America!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was another one bought in China, when I went Scarf crazy in 2014.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another NZ gift, complete with paua shell!

 

So there, Scarf-a-thon 2017 is done! I can’t believe I committed for so long, impressive. Now what will next year’s wardrobe challenge be?

Scarf-A-thon – 64 and counting!

Well I’ve done it! 64 scarves worn, in, you guessed it – 64 days! Check out my latest 16.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

More butterflies…. this one is pretty, worn out for a walk!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lovely jewel tones in this scarf from Camden, London. Bought on my first big overseas trip!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another Bali purchase, red and purple…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think this was a Kuala Lumpur purchase, Chinatown shopping!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pretty sure this was a Kmart number. Lots of colours.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another owl print, this was a birthday gift.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anchors! Kmart? I have so many blue scarves…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Large knitted snood. Love the knit on this.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Polka dots, bought in Melbourne!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

More butterflies, with my new unicorn brooch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A random throwback, this scarf was bought in Istanbul 10 years ago!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another Kuala Lumpur purchase, they were super cheap!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Love this one, no idea where it came from? Holiday purchase, gift?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I bought this lovely scarf in Cambodia back in 2009.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thin and silky, this one is prone to fall off. I ended up knotting the front.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This lovely silk number is from Vietnam. Kept it in place with my cat badge!
