Since I am suffering from longest lasting cold in history and have been stuck inside everyday with my darling students due to the rain, I am totally gagging for Spring.

During the past few weeks, it seems the retailers are feeling the same way, causing me to hyperventilate when I stroll past their windows and see…could it be…OMG…COLOUR!

I mean, I love grey and black as much as the next girl (especially because I can practically get dressed in the dark with my daily combo of black opaques, black dress, black heels, silver jewellery etc.) however I am starting to feel completely over the whole ‘widow in mourning’ look.

I find myself obsessing over all that Summer colour whenever I view Miranda Kerr flouncing around the screen on the David Jones advertisement, although I have found myself obsessing over D.J.’s ads since I was a little kid… (especially the Christmas ones!)

569364-miranda-kerrOoh I can’t wait ’til those skies return…

Thank you so much to Caz for my first award! I am so excited!

Honest Scrap Award

(Caz actually gave me the choice between an Honest Scrap or the One Lovely Blog award..I am choosing the Honest Scrap!)

So here are 10 Honest things about me…

1. I spent $600 on a new flute last year but have only played it about three times. Pathetic, I know! I used to play flute in high school and one day I will get back into it…

2. Even when I’m broke, I still buy Vogue. It’s an addiction.

3. I can pretty much recite the script to a number of chick flicks (‘Bridget Jones’ Diary’, ‘Notting Hill’, ‘Sleepless in Seattle’, ‘Steel Magnolias’, ‘Pretty Woman’ and anything else totally tragic…I have no shame.)

4. I can’t sleep without an eye mask.

5. When I die, I want to donate as many of my organs as I can.

6. I never really wanted to be a teacher, but now I wouldn’t want to be anything else!

7. I become intrigued with particular foods and they become my favourite thing for a while, until I am completely over them and never want to eat them again. (Past obsessions have included K-Time bars, Stringers cheese sticks, Sesame Snaps, the list goes on…)

8. I want to work at an American Summer Camp because I love ‘The Parent Trap’. I can’t believe I just admitted that.

9. I love that I can walk to my friend’s homes. Growing up on a farm, all my friends lived so far away, it still amazes me how I can just trot around to visit my best buds.

10. When I walk past tea shops, I shut my eyes and pretend I am in Hong Kong…I can’t wait to go back there!

I am passing on this award to 5 ladies who never fail to entertain me…

1. Sarah

2. Sam

3. Stephanie

4. Loys

5. Mollie


Ok, so I got tagged by Kristina to do this and I am so thrilled that someone is actually reading my blog that I thought …why not?!

Although this could reveal my identity as a blogger, da da daaaahhh…. (cue exciting music).

1) Open your first photo folder

2) Now scroll down to your 10th photo

3) Post that photo and story on your blog

4) Tag five other bloggers to do the same!

So here goes…

Sunny Melbourne

Sorry to disappoint…no pic of me. Although this does show where I live… This pic was taken on a Sunday afternoon back in December. I am using my parent’s computer at the beach house right now so I didn’t think there would be many photos on here. And alas, I was right…

I took this pic on when we went to the city to celebrate my friend’s birthday. It was such a beautiful Summer day, made more beautiful by the fact that it was accompanied by a dip platter and Lemon, Lime & Bitters.     I like the way that the Yarra river runs through Melbourne like a big lifeline. (Even if it is a dodgy, polluted lifeline that apparently is now safe to fish from. Not that I would be game enough to try).

On this particular afternoon I was reminiscing how during the previous weekI had walked from Rod Laver Arena all the way to this spot, in heels, by myself at 11pm after a Kylie Minogue concert. I was a little bit worried something might happen to me, although I also was feeling quite adventurous and enjoying listening to the conversations of the people who walked past me! This blue sky makes me miss Summer!

And here are some of the fantastic ladies that I am currently addicted to reading…

1. Brandy

2. Olivia

3. Emily

5. Allison

This whole picture business got me thinking…is it better to be an anonymous blogger or should I put a pic up here? Or at least on 20somethingbloggers? What are your thoughts chickies?

If anyone reads this maybe they will reply. I know this is not a very exciting post. I will write something more exciting when I wake up properly/have some chocolate/after I have gone shopping.
