Sorry for the lack of updates. Life has been happening lately and the blog has been on the back burner a little. I’m currently back in Sydney, due to a family member being ill. I’m unsure when I’ll be back in Melbourne. I was originally only staying Tuesday to Tuesday, but I may end up staying an extra 2 weeks as more tests and such need to be done.
Comfortable attire for waiting around hospitals. I’m wearing a Big W dress, City Chic pink shirt-dress and my Black Milk galaxy cape. I hadn’t put my shoes on at this point, but they were my ASOS glitter gum boots.
Apart from obvious stress, it’s nice being back in Sydney. I had been a little home sick, so it’s nice staying with my parents. I’m hoping I may get to see a few other family members whilst I’m here.
The whole getting to Sydney part was a bit of an adventure. In case you didn’t know, Sydney has had the worst storm in 8 years! (Just look at some of these pictures!) I left my house at 7:30am to catch a 11:20am flight. I arrived at the airport to find my flight had been delayed until 3pm. Tiger’s airport terminal in Melbourne is pretty minimal. A coffee shop, a cafe and a newsagent. Plus the worlds most uncomfortable chairs. I ended up laying on the ground for a time cause it was more comfortable. Also, $10 for a sandwich and $4.50 for a bottle of water.
Thankfully the flight did board around 3pm and the flight was pretty good considering. Some pretty crappy terbulance near landing and the whole plane clapped when we landed. The weather outside was abysmal, and my train ride to Penrith was 45 minutes longer then normal. I was lucky that the trains were still running tbh. I arrived at my parents house just after 7pm. So it took me nearly 12 hours to get from Melbourne to Sydney!
I’ve had lots of Aussie cuddles though, and Betsy was excited to see me too. I do miss my parents dogs! The header image is of Mr Tonka, who is back in Melbourne, probably complaining about the weather. He HATES the cold, and has already started wanting his jumper on, and has recently discovered what a heater is!
What’s new with you?
One thing I’ve learned is to not rule out the straight sized section of ASOS (or the Maternity!). When I was looking in the sale section I came across this cat covered dress. Yeah, yeah, I know, I have a thing about animal covered clothing. I kind of wish all my clothing was covered in animal print!
Tonka decided to join in on the action! You can see him hiding in the corner of most of these pictures. He loves his outside time (he goes out everyday, but on a lead).
So this is the size 18 & quite roomy on me. It’s made from scuba material, so super stretchy! I was a little worried about the cut on it, as it’s a little bit boxy, but I think it looks okay and it really is so comfy!
Dress – ASOS (size 18) | Earrings – Strawberry Skies | Bracelets – Lou & Chow | Shoes – Kobe Husk
Time to share some of the items I’ve been eyeing up lately! Clockwise.
Modcloth – Chalk of the Town Dress in Kittens – $99.95 || I already have a modcloth cat dress (which i’m sadly going to have to sell as it’s too big now) so I’ve been eyeing up this one to replace it. It’s in a colour I’d wear more too!
Doodad and Fandango – Poochy Poo in Slurple – $80 || Poodle earrings!! Needless to say, I love everything on the D&F store, but these purple poodles just make me into the heart eyed emoji!
Modcloth – Be Aware of Dog Bag – $78 || If I can’t have a dog, why can’t I just surround myself with dog things? Earrings, tops, bags! Yes please!
ASOS – Delaware Plimsolls – $49.00 || Sequined sneakers. Need I say more?
Nasty Gal – Aria Cat-Eye Shades – $33.00 || I probably have too many pairs of sunglasses, when I really need a pair of scripted sunglasses, but these are just so pretty!
Tilly Me – Dinorama Top – $40 || Dinosaur crop top! It also has a matching skirt!! Also, Made in Melbourne!!
Modcloth – Dino My Gosh Dress in Lime – $49.99 || I’ve been lusting after this dress for awhile, but it’s been sold out in my size. It’s recently been restocked!!
Evans – Lime Green Waterfall Trench Coat – £55.00 || Yeah, I’m loving lime still. This would match my duvet, my luggage, and a few other things. Such a statement piece.
Clashist – Sexy Jeff Tee – $55 || JEFF GOLDBLUM! Sexy Jeff Goldblum!
Iron Fist – My Little Pony Merry Go Round Bootie – $109 || I’ve been eyeing the IronFist MLP sneakers, which I would wear more often, but these, these are just beauties!
