you be trippin'

I allow myself one casual day a week at uni. And by that I mean I wear sneakers or thongs and a singlet or tshirt instead of my normal flowy tops or floral dresses. Lol, it wasn't intentional at first, but it's become a habit that's probably gonna stick.

tie dye

I'm sorry I haven't blogged in a while - but with a broken camera and temperamental internet connection, (not to mention, full time uni & thus, 6am wake-ups) my heart's just not in it any more. I'm really upset about my camera still - I'm considering selling it and getting a sony nex-5n but being unemployed and consequently, struggling, I don't think I'll quite be able to make up the difference (let alone dream of getting the nex-7).

I spent my day off uni yesterday getting a much needed, but possibly useless, haircut - but I'll get back to that - followed by eyebrow maintenance (where my eyebrow lady looked me up and down and told me I'd gained weight - lol I laughed it off because she was older and asian and those types have a tendency to be blunt). Leaving with neat brows, albeit with the cost of a slightly deflated ego, my spirits were lifted upon getting lost in St Vinnies. I never mean to spend that much time in there, but I can't resist a good vintage find - and any seasoned op-shopper would know, you HAVE to look through ALL the racks to get one (or ten) of these. I left with three tops, a maxi skirt, two pairs of pants and three dresses (one of which was an unworn Mad Cortez sample) for less than forty bucks (although I donated the change anyway - giving is nice & I already felt like I was ripping them off lol). I'll post pictures later. This is what I wore today by the way. Super comfy.

In other news a group of 10 of my nephews and little cousins are doing the world's greatest shave on Sunday. It was my 9-year-old nephew's idea - in honour of our cousin Cathy who is currently battling leukaemia. Cute as.

You can donate here: http://my.leukaemiafoundation.org.au/TeamPage.aspx?teamID=67359&langPref=en-CA&Referrer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.worldsgreatestshave.com%2F & if we reach $10,000 (I know it's a long shot - but anything's possible by word of mouth!) I'LL even shave my OWN head. Seriously. Even though I've been trying my best to grow my hair over the last 4 years. I haven't brushed it here, so excuse the mess...but you get the idea.

So get donating - any amount, big or small. & Don't forget to spread the word, it's for an amazing cause!

My net's stuffed up. I can only get online for a very limited time/to do very limited things before it carks it on me - I've had to power cycle twice already - so forgive my lack of posts.

Tomorrow I have my first official day at USYD. Oh that's right - remember a while back I posted about an interview that 'could determine what I was going to do for the rest of my life' and promised to fill you in on the outcome - only if I was successful? Haha I'd completely forgotten about it until now. That was an interview to get into a Master of Pharmacy course at UTS, and yes, despite my lack of follow-up posts, I got in. I have however, since declined the offer, and opted for a Masters of Radiation Therapy at USYD - a course which I'll be starting tomorrow - eek! Hopefully it was the right choice.

Anywho, this is an outfit I'd meant to post a few days ago. It's such a simple dress, but I always feel like such a lady when I've got it on. Well, a lady and at the same time - a powerpuff girl lol. (It's not just me right - there's something a bit power-puffy about it?! Right?? haha). Simple, hair down, minimal accessories. Comfy & pretty - my kind of outfit. And the colour, amazing. You'd never guess where it's from! My little secret - but it was mucchhhhh cheaper than it (hopefully) looks.

It was a bit of an effort taking these photos by the way...sorry about the oven/stove/teatowels/fridge which are closer than usual lol. Really gotta find a person to fix my camera lens :(
