All About Me

I thought it was time I responded to a few 'tags' of late.

Red and Black and Funny All Over

SJ and I went out last night, dinner and a show. I wore my (quickly becoming favourite) bright blue jeans, folded up for a slightly different look. A black sheer shirt (Bardot) with black singlet underneath, stone PeepToes and one of my favourite red jackets. I love this jacket but usually want to wear it with dresses, it tucks in at the base and works so much better with pants.

12wbt - Week Six

These stairs are not my friend...

This was my best week yet during the 12 week body transformation. My 5500 calorie burn challenge has definitely helped keep me committed to my exercise.

My Sunday Shopping

Yesterday I walked into the city (about 4km) to do a little shopping. Needed to get some extra calories burnt on the way to my 5500 total!

Black and White Jackets

I own two black-and-white jackets and I've worn them both over the last two days.

12wbt - Week Five

Finally some decent progress! A 1kg loss recorded this week which I am over the moon about. Makes up for that 0.5kg gain last week!

As mentioned on Friday, I'm going to makeover my blog. I starting playing around with the columns and adding a few elements and things but it wasn't enough. I decided what I really wanted was a new colour scheme...this causes some problems for me, as I use my orange/blue signpost in everything! So the fist step is then to find a new one.

Had a bit of a think on my driving to/from Canberra and this is what I've come up with...

The compass keeps with my 'directions' theme, the shoe/dress/plane/camera represent what I blog about. Or in the case of travel, want to blog about. I thought about substituting either the dress or shoe for a nail polish bottle but I'm not sure it would come out as well, any thoughts? I feel like there is too much white space and the balance is a bit off. I will play with it though :-)

Full Saturday Post (and another OOTD)

Just to include a few pics I couldn't post from my phone yesterday. My disappointing poached eggs...SJ is about to cook me some for Sunday breakfast, let's hope they are better ;-)

Quick OOTD and Sakura Lounge Review

This is what I wore today, red Kmart jeans, brown boots and bag and blue jumper. Weird photo because I was playing with the fish eye lens.

I didn't manage to sleep much yesterday, so I was rather tired when my friends from Canberra arrived late last night. As a result, I slept in this morning.

Went into the city for brunch on Hardware Lane...wasn't too impressed, my poached eggs had hard yokes :-(

Then I surprised MissA (the newly engaged friend) with a 2.5 hour package at Sakura Lounge around the corner. It was incredible. Included a one hour massage, hour long facial and 30 mins of foot scrub/massage. Cost $290 for the two of us, including an upgrade to a le suisse facial.

I had my massage first, it was a dry massage (towel over body) and really focused on pressure points. One of the best I have had, my hands, neck and scalp got the attention I wanted..once had a full body and they didn't do my hands at all!

The facial was lovely. I haven't had many in my time, but it was the best yet. My skin is looking so great I won't be wearing any foundation when we go out tonight.

Foot massage/scrub was pretty standard, we were in the same room so we got to chat and enjoyed a little Japanese sweet and cup of tea.

All in all a great experience and we were in there almost 3 hours. I will definitely be back and intend to leave a review on womo (word of mouth) even before I noticed a sign saying they won an award for best business on womo for 2011.

We're heading off for dinner soon, I will endeavour to take a better outfit post this time!

A Long 4am Post (and OOTD)

Here I am at work at 2am (at least it was when I started this post). A little bored but thankfully not struggling to stay awake just yet.

Why am I here? As I've mentioned before, I work in flood prediction. Here in Victoria there is a little bit of flooding happening at the moment and I am monitoring the situation overnight...

12wbt - Week Three

Week three of Michelle Bridge's body transformation has been a tough one for me. Really struggling with exercise motivation and I've been rather hungry. So compared to week two, definitely not a good week for me.

I'm so lucky...

No this isn't a post about what I am grateful for, it's a post about how I seem to have the golden touch of late.

PeepToe Warehouse Sale!

So here is my haul. Very impressed with all of it, I went with the intention of updating my 'classic' shoes, getting a few neutrals, shoes for work and some nice black going out pairs. I think you'll agree I succeeded.

Colour Blocking: Attempt #1


So I wore my bright blue jeans today as promised! Apologies for the camera phone photographs though, means they will all be in portrait (way too hard to hold it far enough away otherwise) and not the best quality. Means you see the outfit in pieces but I am sure you'll survive.

Pastel Nails for Miss Ess

This post is a response to tag from Miss Ess. The challenge was pastel...I don't really do pastel but I raided my wardrobe and beauty cabinet and came up with the following...I own pastel nail polishes!
