Red lippy wtih Red cherries 29/10/11

On the advice of both my best friend and my dear friend Bug from Bug's Beauty Blog, I have finally decided to get over my shyness and show my face properly on my blog! Goodbye to anonymity! I'm definitely not a shy person IRL, but I had some reservations about having my face all over the internet. When I explained to my friends about my reservations, they simply responded "Who are you kidding? Everyone recognises you anyway!" haha. So here I am... pasty face and all.

Instead of participating in the races, this year we've decided to have high tea at The Windsor! Suits us ladies a whole lot more since we don't drink and don't bet on horses. High tea was delicious - unfortunately my hungry tummy prevailed and I forgot to take photos of the food that I ate.

23/10/11 Dress me Up!

Helloooo... I spent the last couple of days in Sydney with my cousin to celebrate my belated birthday (back in August) and to dine at Tetsuya. We also shop shop shopped till we literally dropped and its safe to say that I won't be shopping for a little while - eeek.

Today I'm wearing some of my Sydney purchases - I'm glad I've returned to lovely weather in Melbourne as I heard it was crappy the last few days! I have had my eyes on this skirt the moment I saw the Spring/Summer 2011 lookbook and have been waiting patiently for it to come out. Its finally mine! Yay! I really wanted the Dita cardigan in red but they've unfortunately sold out! I don't mind the black though - it goes with everything!

Pinks and Purples with some Sparkle 16/10/11

Alannah Hill "Fibbing all Day" cardigan and "Bring me flowers" skirt, Miu Miu shoes
I am in love with this skirt! And the warm weather is totally perfect for these colours! It also comes in a dress version, but I prefer to mix and match.  The cardigan is an old favourite - I have about 4 cardigans that are  in a similar style (but in different colours and different details on each). Yes, I have too many cardigans. And skirts. eeeek.

These Miu Mius may look like plain satin slippers from the front, but hide some fabulous sparkles at the heel!
In other news, my basketball training is coming along. However, since my body is not used to this type of fitness, I seem to be injuring myself left right and centre! Must stretch more. And warm up and warm down. *sigh*

Black and Blue 9/10/11

Forever New leather jacket, Oxford silk top, Sportsgirl leggings, Alexander McQueen scarf, Salvatore Ferragamo shoes, Miu Miu Bag

These lovely classic Ferragamos were purchased in the flagship store in Florence, Italy. I wanted to buy so many more pairs of Ferragamos but I still had so many things on my list, I had to hold back!
I love how the sun's rays poke through the bushes in this picture. The AMcQ scarf was a birthday gift from my lovely friend Karina, who has excellent taste! Karina and her boyfriend met up with us in Paris and we double dated our way through the Paris leg of our trip. Whoever says double dating is cheesy (especially in Paris) is too cynical! It was super super fun and we ate and laughed our way through the streets of Pareeee!

Outfit 8/10/11

So I thought it would be pretty funny to sign up for "Mixed-Basketball" at the Corporate Games since a few of the guys at work thought it would be pretty funny as well. I was sure it wasn't going to happen as I was the ONLY girl in the team. But we've subsequently found enough players now and there's no pulling out. Ever since I've been telling friends, family and even my trainer at Vibromania that I am participating in basketball, every single person has found it hilarious. I happen to be the SHORTEST in my team and er, struggle to even run for a full minute. Sigh. And so the training begins... the bf and I ran to the Subway down the road today to start my training. And then we each had a footlong Sub. Yum!

On an unrelated topic, Crazy, Stupid, Love, was simply divine. To be honest, I have never really found Ryan Gosling attractive - not even in The Notebook. The bf and I actually debated over Ryan Gosling's hotness and while he found him rather attractive, I thought it was more about the personality in The Notebook. But then you see him in Crazy, Stupid, Love, and um, he is kind of AMAAAAAZING. I recommend watching the movie, if not just to see him (and his hot bod). As a bonus, the movie really made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside so it will definitely be a DVD I will purchase to watch over and over again (like the rest of my collection!).
