Spring today – Summer tomorrow!

I can’t believe the first day of Summer is tomorrow! Judging by the weather we are having here in Melbourne – its not looking very hot! Today has been wintery! With lots of wind gusts, rain and thunderstorms!

Today I brought out my winter boots to wear. It has some detailing near the ankle and then has a tassel at the back. I paired it with some black tights and a fun black and teal skirt I got from Gap.

On a different note, I got another one of my ebay purchases – its a teal cuff – I really like the size of it as my wrist is quite small – it fits really well.

Last of all – what do you guys think of fanta flavoured lip smackers? My friend got me some which I have yet to use!

Satchel bag

Hello all,

I have been looking for a satchel bag for a while. Even when I was in the US I kept an eye out for one that I would love. But the problem is whenever I’m looking for something in particular I never seem to find it. So alas I did not buy one there. Just recently I went shopping and this one popped out! It’s a small tan satchel bag which you can wear with the strap or just hold the handle! The thing that drew me to this one was actually the color. On the tag it said it was tan but it looks like a mix of tan and orange.

 

So this is my new “love it” bag! I will definitely be using this for Summer 🙂 which btw is just around the corner in 3 days!! Though the weather has been a little crazy – still raining in Summer?? What the?

Leave you guys with some food pics 🙂 Just came back from burgers MMmm – nearly as good as the US ones 🙂

 

Ebay purchases

If you have seen my other post on ebay addiction you may have noticed that I did purchase some goods – namely a scarf and some accessories! So they came in the mail the other day and what was my reaction?

Okay the scarf – a big nono!! It wasn’t the color I was after. The stitching was all messed up and it had a stain in the middle of it! The quality was very bad! So I thought – what do I do? I left them neutral feedback and then emailed them to say that it was all wrong. Thankfully they have agreed to refund my purchase otherwise… I don’t know what I would have done.

2nd purchase – was these cute belt wristbands. They looked the way that the picture described and I love them. They are edgy and my style.

 

 Favourite place to have dessert is a place called Vanilla! They have the best cakes and really comfy booth seats 🙂 I always head here with my good friends for a good ol chat gossip session and eat 🙂

Even though its bucketing down! I hope tomorrow will be full of sunshine! 🙂

Leopard + Orange

Today is casual Friday and this is what I wore to work. (Sorry  pic a little dark)
Leopard ruffle top – Temp
H&M jeans
Espirit orange cardigan
Target jeweled sandles

The weather has turned a bit colder even though we are nearing Summer in less than a week!! That’s Melbourne for you!
I leave you with a picture of some of my pets 🙂 They make me happy 🙂

#2. What’s a weird habit of yours? I always leave my cups lying around the house! Then I will wash them in one go!

#3. Do you have any weird phobias?  Yes!! Well I think it’s weird – I’m scared of magpies (I’m not sure if everyone knows what they are) Basically they are black and white birds that kinda look like ravens and they swoop. Everytime I see them on a overhead wire I have to cross the street to the other side.

Tribal bangles + OOTD

On the weekend, I rocked this look. I wore my hair sorta braided to the side and an orange long tee with skinny jeans. I wore this long cardigan but I tied it up at the front to make it look different and accesorised with these tribal bangles! I love just getting a whole heap of them and slipping them onto my wrist. Fast easy and out the door 🙂

Missoni inspired maxi + delicious dumplings

I went to a small boutique and saw this maxi dress. I loved the print – reminded me of the hype with Missoni at Target. I think I’m liking maxi dresses. I’m not 100 per cent sure if I should get it or not.

Has anyone tried to wear a maxi as a shorter skirt?

 

On a food note, today at lunch I went to this asian restaurant. My friend and I tried the prawn spring rolls and they use a different skin wrapper which made it extra crunchy. It was delish and we also had red bean pancake! That was good as well and some pork shanghai dumplings!
